Default Favorite Book

What is your favorite book? Mine is Go Ask Alice, it doesnt say who the author is, but its a good book... - Here is the back cover -

January 24- after you've had it, there isn't even life without drugs...

The harrowing true story of a teenager's descent into the seuctive world of drugs. A diary so honest you may think you know Alice. --Or someone like her. Read her diary. Enter her world. You'll never be able to forget Alice.

Obviously in a true diary her name is not really Alice and they use fake names and addresses but they events are real.. Almost unbelievable..

My favorite book is called Best of Enemies and is by Bassam Abu-Sharif & Uzi Mahnaimi. Here's where the front cover says:

"A Palestinian airplane hijacker. An Israeli intelligence officer. A friendship that would change the course of Mideast politics."

It's a true story of both of their accounts of the fued between Israel and Palestine. It's very informative and interesting to read.

It doesn't take a hero - General H. Normal Schwarzkopf.

I'm a big history/war buff so it comes natural.

Catch-22 is my favourite book of all time, although I still remember the first time I read Catcher in the Rye.

catcher in the rye is a great book. so many books to pick from, reading lolita in tehran, teh great gatsby, a complicated kindness, the house of sand and fog, 1984, catcher in the rye would probably be up there, lots of others.
