Valley of the Dolls - Jacqueline Susann
This is not of the quality of some of the other books, but the way it was writen brings you into the lives of the characters so well that you feel like you've know them all along.
People who added this item 6 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0
A great shorty story that only Steinbeck can tell so well.
People who added this item 471 Average listal rating (232 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
On the Road - Jack Kerouac
An epic book with a backwards look at America.
People who added this item 4 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 0
On the Beach - Nevil Shute
This is the only book that has made me cry out loud. The writing is fluid and the story is heartbreaking from page 1.
People who added this item 36 Average listal rating (20 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0
The Road - Cormac McCarthy
The Road takes you down nothing but sorrow. Worth the trip, but bring your tissue.

The Shining - Stephen King
This story, not to be confused with Stanley Kubrick's version, is amazing in it's imagnation and oh so creepy

Choke - Chuck Palahniuk
I could have added several of Chuck Palahniuk's works, however this one is my favorite.
People who added this item 567 Average listal rating (458 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0
Lord of the Flies - William Golding
A horrifying look into the innate cruelty of human kind.
People who added this item 22 Average listal rating (13 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 0
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
Read it and think of our future.
People who added this item 19 Average listal rating (6 ratings) 8.5 IMDB Rating 0
Geek Love: A Novel - Katherine Dunn
This book won't be for everyone, it is disturbing to say the least. I think that the disturbing nature of the story and its undeniable uniqueness is what pushes it to spot no. 2.
People who added this item 650 Average listal rating (494 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0
The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
This a book that flows like poetry. Not popular in its time, but has turned into a classic. One of my favorite of all time, hence it's place at no. 1.

These are my favorites, not to be confused with the favorites of the masses
