Default Last Good Book you Read

I've just finished up "The Master and Magarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov. It was banned for the longest time partially since it was written when Stalin was taking power. No wonder, one of the characters represents Stalin not in the most flattering ways. And of course like all good satirical socio-political novels the devil is there to question the main character's resolve. If you like Satire then this is a nice pick up...

Foley Is Good by Mick Foley. Great, great read. As is his other book "Have a Nice Day". Of course, I read those books, like two years ago. Since then, I haven't read shit 'cuz reading's 4-losers.

The last book i read was The Godfather by Mario Puzo. I enjoyed it and like all books made into films goes into more and better detail then their respective films

With the exception of Hannibal, the ending of the book was terrible and was thankfully changed for the film.

As a fan of movies, anyone would enjoy "Hitchcoks Notebeooks" Its basically a compilation of everything Hitchcock wrote about his biggest movies. I would give it a 9/10. Also for thos interested in Political Satire "Animal Farm" is another that if you get it you'll enjoy it.

I agree "Animal Farm" is a nice quick read....Course my version had the Ralph Steadman illustrations in it! A KEEPER!

The best book I've read lately is The Scarlet Letter. Nathaniel Hawethorne is the greatest writer of all-time.

Wait that was really sick sarcasm, no one should even joke about liking The Scarlet Letter. I had to read that with school. That was a horrendous book.

Actually, the best books I've read recently are "Have a Nice Day" by Mick Foley and I also thoroughly enjoyed "The Lord of The Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien. Those are some really good reads.

Try "UBik" if you like Philip K. Dick...Its a little more challenging. Good picks

Last book I read was
"And Then There Were None"
-Agatha Christie
I really liked it for the older story type.

I am kinda late on it, but I am currently reading the first book in the "Left Behind" series...Very good!

The Long Walk - Stephen King writing as Richard Bachman. I got so into it so easily. Definitely one of the hardest books to put down that I've come across before.

Hannibal was a good book for me, a much better ending than the movie atleast from my point of view.

The Communist Manifesto was the last thing I read, but then again it should hardly be considered a book, more like a pamphlet
