It’s so sad to see this thread dead so maybe it’s about time to breathe some life into it.
If I were to list all the books I love, I’d most likely reach the character limit. I don’t think I recall any book I didn’t enjoy. In this case I’ll just list the ones that hold a special place in my heart.
The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett
I can’t list only one book from that series, I loved them all. I’m still in the middle of reading through all the books in a chronological order, and so I can tell how Pratchett’s writing improved with time. The Death books might just be my favorite of them all.
I want to share with you a quote I found particularly relevant to this forum, after all, isn’t this basically one of Umineko’s lessons? (Death is the one speaking in all caps.)
There are more quotes like that but I don’t think this thread is the best place for them.
Neuromancer by William Gibson
This book is most likely what made me interested in the cyberpunk genre. It’s interesting to see how the author managed to predict some things related to the modern virtual world.
Mystery novels by Agatha Christie
Umineko made me start reading her works and I absolutely loved them. I was pleasantly surprised how unpredictable the solutions were, I honestly thought nothing would slip past me after what Umineko taught me about the world of mystery novels.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Together with the Discworld series, the funniest books I’ve read. Maybe I’m just in love with the British humour, who knows.
Actually, this post is probably already longer than what most people would feel like reading, so I’ll stop here for now and hope that the thread gets revived.
