My favourite book, I'd have to say, is Lord of the Flies, by William Golding.

I collect copies of it, no matter how torn, beaten, or worn out they may be. I've rescued several copies from dumpsters before.

It's my favourite story, because it depicts what I've always believed- that children are inherently monsters. I know, there are reasons behind this, that sustainable civilization is beyond their grasp at their age, but I stand by it.

(runners up are Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman; Rant, by Chuck Palahniuk; Party Monster, by James St. James; Crooked Little Vein, by Warren Ellis; Starship Troopers, by Robert Heinlein; Coin Locker Babies, by Ryuu Murakami; and A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket)

This is one of those books I've always meant to read... yet somehow, even going through my major in English Lit, I just never read it!


I'm moving it up on my list!

I can't actually remember if it was required reading or not... some classes in my school got to read standard list books, while others were assigned completely off-the-list books (for instance, I never read Fahrenheit 451 like most students did, but instead I read Martian Chronicles- which I also loved). I think I was jealous of the students who got to read Lord of the Flies so I read it on my own anyway ;)
