If you're after something funnier, try Catch 22 by Joseph Heller, or American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis.

Re: Recommend a book!

Apart from wrestling related books, the only one I have read all the way through more than once is Dracula. I love that book.

Also, Jeff Abbott has done some good stuff. The last book I read was "Panic" from him and it kept me interested throughout. Currently reading another one of his; "Fear". I'd recommend him too, as well as Lee Child.

Re: Recommend a book!

Nineteen Eighty Four
The Crucible
Animal Farm

Three of the best books I've ever read, funnily enough I read them all at school. The Crucible & Nineteen Eighty Four this year (12), and we've been comparing them in class and stuff. Animal Farm I read in Year 10, was amazed with it.

Everyone needs to read A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin.

I'm not that big of a fan of The Crucible though I get the point of it and like it on that level. The actual story just doesn't grab me. Kinda like The Great Gatsby I guess.

Orwell's stuff works on both levels and for me, it's about as good as it gets.

Just finished reading Arbrham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Awesome book.
