I also really like Lord of the Rings, various Michael Crichton, various Chuck Palanhiuk, and a few one-offs like 1984, Brave New World, and The Perks of Being A Wallflower.

I didn't either. One of my brothers convinced me to read one though.

hmmm, the first two sound like my dad he's got first edition hardbacks of lotr. plus the movies obvs. i've never seen/read any of it. my ex was pissed that i refused to see the movies with him. oh well, he went with my dad

i've read like one or two chuck palanhiuk books, and i've read 1984. i'm weird about books. there's so many out there, i never know what to pick, so i just kind of stare like an idiot when i go to the bookstore. i have to ask people who know my tastes for suggestions but yet, there's probably just as many books out there as albums, and yet i have no problem when it comes to finding new music i'm weird, i know.

Axver's adventures with Harry Potter.

Around the time the second book was released: My father pointed it out to me at the Wellington Airport bookshop since he'd read it was gaining popularity. I took one look at the back cover, said "it's just a stupid children's book and that idea's been done before a million times" and put it back.

Sometime around the fourth book's release: Suddenly it was popular at my school and amongst my friends, so I figured I'd give it a chance. Read books 1-4. They all sucked.

Sometime around the fifth book's release: My friends were really looking forward to it. I wondered if I'd perhaps missed something, so I read the series again. Read books 1-4 and the first 100 pages of book 5. They all still sucked. Never again will I trust my high school friends for book recommendations.

And now some people act like it's the pinnacle of literature. Come on, the characters are paper-thin, the basic idea is derivative and unoriginal to the extreme, and the plot/subplot confusion is rife.

Though what pisses me off is its obnoxious and thoroughly irritating online fandom. They should go collectively leap off a cliff.

Books take more of a commitment. I would highly recommend to you "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky.

LOTR, 1984, and Brave New World for the win.
