Mine was Karana from "Island of the Blue Dolphins" because she managed to stay alive all alone for 18 years on an island after her people were taken away and her brother was killed by wild dogs. And to top it off, it was a true story. That takes guts and determination. I read that book when I was 8 or 9 and I can still remember it like I read it yesterday.

I loved that book! In fact, it came to mind just recently, and I thought I must read it again. Nice choice.
I am with you, FatFreddysCat... excuse me while I go out and clean up the whale from my front garden!
Atticus is one of mine too, billybuc. I used to wish when I was young that he was my father. GREAT choice.
Ever read Watership Down? Great animal novel...
I love the "Hip 2B Square", scene. The way he parades around dancing before killing his co-worker. Awesome, however, I don't think Mila Kunis was very convincible in the sequel...
Urgh, ignore the sequel. It has nothing to do with the source novel.
If you liked the original movie, then read the book if you haven't. They did a good job with the film, but definitely had to tone it down. The book will leave you...warped...
I have, and yes the book was bit on the murderous side I would say, just a tad bit more. My man, the book let ME conduct the killing that is how intense the book got me, but you are right, Bale did make the movie. Who'd think a business card, Ugh!
Ha ha. Easton Ellis did an amazing job with that book. One minute all is happy, and the next it's some of the most awful stuff you have read. The thing that I liked is that it all had a point.
A movie version of that would be close to unwatchable.
You are probably right, it could actually get an "X" rating just for the gore of it.
And then there's the sex. Yeh, I could never see it getting made.
Oh, he was so cool in the bedroom when he killed the two prosties, especially the dialogue and how he calmly instructed them into servicing one another, especially when he says, "what are you doing standing there...eat her---", classic pimp!
I couldn't begin to imagine what it would have been like for them. "You're going to have a bad time".
