My favourite novel of all time is... by... because..."Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte... it's by far the most amazing piece of literature I have ever picked up. It's so layered, complex, passionate... it is really indescribable. The character of Heathcliff is simply unforgettable. Before I had read it I thought it was just some sappy love story; but it's way more than that. It has this dark, towering gothic aura about it. It's brilliant.
The three authors whose works I think everyone should read before they die are... because... Well, Wuthering Heights, obviously, and then Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. If you find the subject matter icky (paedophilia), read it for the language. It's gorgeous. I'm not really sure what the third should be, but I think I'll go with The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I think the most overrated author of all time is...Dan Brown, definitely, and then maybe Graham Greene, whose novels just bore me to tears.
The most appalling novel I was forced to read in high school was... 21 stories by Graham Greene. Ugh, forget, forget, forget...
I joined this community because... I like books ^__^
When I am not reading I am... eating, sleeping, writing, watching TV, listening to Depeche Mode (I'm a huge fan) ... at the moment, out enjoying the summer holidays with friends and cheering on the boys in red at the pub ^__^
