The Prestige by Christopher Priest. It's the book the movie was based on and actually, the book is (if its possible) even better!

Neon Angel by Cherie Currie is a really great book.
The Runaways movie is based off of it.
Not my favorite, but it's still really good.
She's also a Bowie freak. And I can relate to her a lot.
xD

My ACTUAL favorite book is- (Please don't hit me) Harry Potter.
I know, it's one of the most popular books ever.

I've been looking everywhere for that book!! I watched the film and about 10 minutes in I just thought 'shit. she's practically me.'
Then she started doing drugs and stuff, but anyway, yeah, I can relate to her a lot too Very Happy

My favourite book is a tie between The String Of Pearls, which is the original Sweeney Todd book from the 1800s, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, or Harry Potter
I'm a bit of a Harry Potter nerd Cool *goes to draw lightning scar on forehead*

Catcher in the Rye it's probably my number 1 book, but I really enjoy also Lolita, Master and the Margarita, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest...what's more...I really like Dickens, Murakami, Kobo Abe and Christopher Moore. And I guess there are much more of them but right know I just don't remember Wink

It's a good one. When we talk about scifi I would also add H.G. Wells, M. Shelley and his Frankenstein Smile

I'm currently reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and although the film adaption is WAY better, it is an interesting story. Philip K. Dick is a master of making you wonder just what's going on - things often make no sense at all, heh heh

Very much so. It is the most interesting ganre for me, although there is a lot of crap out there (but that's true in any ganre I guess).

Asimov is cool. Haven't read the Robot saga yet... Should probably have a go at that. What Scifi books would you(or anyone) recomend?

Have you ever heard about well known polish sci-fi writer Stanislaw Lem? (I couldn't post external link here, but check him on wiki Wink)

I've read Tales of Pirx the Pilot, Katar (The Cold), Solaris and Eden. There are really good.

I have heard about him. I saw Solaris, and I think Asimov mentioned him in an article once. But I haven't read anything by him. I'll definitelly put him on the list! Very Happy
