    What's your favorite piece of literature? Please state the title and the author and briefly explain what the book is about and give some insight on why you like it, why you don't like it, etc. Hopefully, this will be an active thread and I can see what kind of books/literature you all like and why.

    This'll be fun.

    My favorite books are by Kurt Vonnegut. There's something about him that's unconventional, and I like that. Maybe it's because he's the first person to ever use the word "motherfucker" in a book. He's got that non-chalant, tell it like I see it sort of ways of writing.

    My favorite book by him is God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater. It's a close second to the classic, Slaughterhouse 5. God Bless You...yadda yadda, I like because it makes one of the best, round-about, nutzo cases for socialism ever. Ever.

    Stephen King supposedly begged JK Rowling not to kill him off in the last book. Hopefully she won't. It's crazy, though, to think that Harry Potter turned from a bedtime story for her kids to some multi-million dollar industry where kids on message boards everywhere discuss whether or not he's going to die in the next book.

    I like Terry Goodkind for sci-fi lit, but as far as your more classics go I like East of Eden by Steinbeck and 1984.

    That's insane. Yeah, it's a great story and I love the books. It's insane how J.K. Rowling went from truely rags to riches with this series. What do you think is going to happen in this final book?
