Re: your top book by Gypsy on 7 April 2003 8:00am
Well, if I must pick only one...
for the last 14 years JRR Tolkien's 'The Two Towers', the second book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy has been my favorite book.

I'm a bit sad that now when I say that it's not quite so interesting because of the movies. You know how you feel like something is just yours, even though you know tons of other people have read it? Well, I guess I feel that the movies' popularity has sort of overshadowed the books and now when I say they're my favorite books, mostly everyone just thinks of the movies.

oops..I kind of rambled. Sorry about that!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham.

No other book has ever come close to it for me!

Re: your top book by pandk2 on 7 April 2003 9:35am
Well, apart from Michael's travel books,which are impossible to beat really, I would have to say...
"Legend Of The Celtic Stone"
"The Secret Diary of Adrain Mole"..really!
Re: your top book by sleepydumpling on 7 April 2003 1:10pm
Oh Karen - all of the Adrian Mole books are brilliant! I re-read them quite regularly. I'm almost the same age as Adrian so I have grown up with him and in a lot of ways can really identify with him!

I think it might be time to read those all again now that you've reminded me of them!

Kath - what is the Queen and I like by sue townsend?

Fave fiction book = Thomas Hardy, and Far from the Madding Crowd

Fave fiction turned into drama on tv has to be Pride and Prejudice - the bbc version with Colin Firth (wet t shirt episode and the humour of jane Austen!)

fave non fiction at the moment is david Atttenborough LIfe On Air - the stories from that are unmissable.

Oh LYN!!!!!!!! I LOVE Colin Firth and have "Pride and Prejuduce" with him in it. I agree. There's nothing better than that . It might be considered a chick-flick, but it's unbelievably well-acted. And he's such a hunk in it!!! He comes in a close second to Michael, for me, anyway.!!!

hearbeats faster and faster...THUMP, THUMP, THUMP...

Probably anything with dogs...
Re: your top book by notquitenglish on 8 April 2003 3:54am
Favourite book?
No contest!
"The Restaurant at the End Of The Universe" by Douglas Adams, the funniest man in the world.
Of course, he died a few years ago, so that spot's open for Palin if he wants it....
Re: your top book by Miss-M on 8 April 2003 4:39am
Lyn & Patty, I watched The Importance of Being Ernest the other night with *our* man Colin Firth! ;)

Will you be going to see him in What a Girl Wants? *Hehe*
