    My favorite book is David Copperfield by Charles Dickens.  This novel has an interesting and exciting plot and the characters in the book are very unusual.  I also learned a lot about life in England during the 1800s.

    I don't usually have a 'favorite' of anything. I have a top 10 favorites. That way I don't have to limit myself to one particular mood or time frame. This morning the book in the number one spot of my top 10 favorites is The Virginian by Owen Wister. Aside from the fact that it's a great story and the first real western, it gives the reader a very real feel of the distances that had to be traveled to get from one place to another in the 1880's and 1890's west. Going to the train station could be a week's adventure! And last but certainly not least, it is the origin of the most famous line from any western, ever--"When you call me that, smile."

      I absolutely agree with you that it is difficult to have a "favorite." I've had "favorite" books during each different life phase and experience.

    I have to go with Orwell's masterpiece, 1984. I doubt there are books as influential and maybe even prophetic as this one.
    The story is fascinating, intricate and incredibly original; the characters are extremely complex; but I think what the most impressive thing about this book is its concepts and ways of thinking. The views on propaganda and the manipulation of information is something that gives you a lot to think about, and don't even get me started on Big Brother.
    Truly an exceptional book.

      An absolute classic! Certainly gives you a lot to ponder and reflect on.

    If I were to pick one, it would be 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The plot is entirely great and there are various lessons you could get from the story (also I love the main character).

    I guess some of you might have already watched the animated film that was adapted.

    Anyways, I really would recommend this book.
