Oh.. They're just too many.. But the Top List would look something like this:

George Orwell - 1984
Ken Kissy - One Flew Over A Coockoo's Nest
John Steinbeck - Of Mice And Men
Joseph Heller - Catch 22
Fyodor Dostoevsky - Brothers Karamazovy
Fyodor Dostoevsky - The Insulted And Humiliated

I think those are my favourites because I've read all of them at least 5 times each :] All of them are real masterpieces :]
Come to think that I'm a book addict it's a shame I've read them only 5 times each...

P.S. Stevie you should really try something else and you'll see that reading books is the best thing you can do besides playing guitar. It's way better than watching stupid movies(i hate every single movie that's out there) and watching TV(I hate this too). There are such great minds that have written such great books that there's surely something for you.

P.S.S. I hate Dan Brown.. I hate him, Baldacci, Graham, Jeffrey Archer, Michael Connely and all those stupid criminalystic "books" that just don't have anything written in them. And I hate it when books make people stop thinking instead of making them think... (And that's what these guy's books do).

Give Stephen Kings Dark Tower series a try as I prefer that book and they are about to make extended films of this book series. The guy who created Lost and directed Cloverfield is doing the movies

they are amazing books and it is almost painful waiting for the follow up to the latest in the series (a feast of crows) and i had to wait long enough for that to come out.
that is the problem with series books they suck you in and keep you dangling.
