Snake, i've a confession to make mate....i still havent read THE KILLING JOKE!!! I know, its a travesty, esp me being a Batman NUT and an Alan Moore Aficianado!!!! I will order it online ASAP. I know its a masterpiece, i've seen the artwork too, while flicking through it whilst at HMV Oxford Street a while ago.

I ordered FROM HELL (Alan Moore) from Play.com for 14.49, cant wait to read it!! I love reading about the history of London, East London in particular, also i live a stones throw away from Whitechapel, where the 'ol Ripper plyed his demented trade......heard it was one of thhe best graphic novels.

Reading HELLBLAZER: India at the moment (John Constantine?), i love these graphic novels!!! CONSTANTINE IS A FU***** LEGEND!!

If you've not read 'em before, one word of advice DO IT NOW!!!! Start of with HELLBLAZER: DANGEROUS HABITS....

I remember first reading THE KILLING JOKE during Xmas 1989 after Tim Burton's BATMAN had taken over the world. It's just brilliant.

A couple of my favourites:
Matt Ruff - Set this house in order (two people with multiple personalitiy disorder trying to be whole again, brilliant)
Matt Ruff - Bad Monkeys (According to the cover a mix of "Silence of the lambs" and "The Matrix", which I find to be true)
Chuck Palahniuk - Lullaby (great Horror by the master of the absurd)
Anthony Burgess - A clockwork orange (needs no introduction)
Shakespeare - Macbeth (has always been my favourite Shakespeare)

Some of my faves:

- Never Let Me Go
- 1984
- The Handmaids Tale
- Brave New World
- Pride and Prejudice
- A Room With A View
- Jane Eyre
- Wuthering Heights

(My two favourite genre's are Dystopian Fiction and Rich People Larking)

Shoutout to Harry Potter and A Series of Unfortunate Events - these were my faves as a child! I even read them again recently and they were still really, really good. Particularly the latter which I was sort of expecting to be rubbish to read as an adult, but it is still thoroughly entertaining!

Tough one - probably a tie between Catcher in the Rye and Great Gatsby.

i am reading Innovera Yakov- the journey of a thousand eyes by Kia Garriques. Amazing book and one to watch. I think they are going to turn it into a movie too. Apparently she wrote it all based from her dreams, I couldnt put it down so i highly recommend it.

Also i am reading the harry potter series for the first time! a little late i know....anyway am loving it too. The hunger game (the book) was okay too.

Let me just mention a few.

Most of Michael Moorcock's work on The Eternal Champion, Especially The Dancers at the End of Time.

Some things I read related to Amazons, The Sword is Forged by Evangeline Walton and The Shattered Horse by S.P. Somtow.

Francine Mezo, The Fall of Worlds trilogy.

And for some teen vampire stuff, Nancy Collins' Vamps series (yes, a near-40 guy reading girls' teens vampire stuff).
