    Fahrenheit 451! That's another great one. I think I've enjoyed everything I've read by Bradbury.

    Also H.G. Welles, Jules Verne, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

    I'm going to get into Gaiman soon, and eventually some other things.

    I really do enjoy Malazan, especially in Audible form as the voice acting is excellent and I can listen while working out. Currently I spend more time reading instructional books on writing, math, and business so I don't like to read for pleasure so much as listen if that makes sense.
    Kinda-sorta Roman, kinda-sorta comics. Look for Asterix and Obelix.

    Loved Martian Chronicles. Any votes for Isaac Asimov?

    Oh, and if you like manly adventure (e.g. Hornblower, Stevenson), you might try H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines.

    I need to catch up on pretty much my life (HA). I can't stand audiobooks because I can't think about the characters and who they really are and kinda "solve" the story... It sounds weird, but I literally over analyze everything. Wbu?

    The book I most enjoyed reading may have been The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, although I disagree with many of her philosophical views. The writer I most admire for his writing is probably Vladimir Nabokov.

    I very much like The Picture of Dorian Grey, and Where the Sidewalk Ends has a special place in my heart as well.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I remember Shell Silverstein. He's my childhood.
