    Best book you've ever read

    What's the best book you've ever read, and why?

    Mine was probably The Mists of Avalon, because is explores different points of view. The female characters have depth, they all have flaws and qualities, there is no "good" and "evil". The male characters though are a bit one-dimensional. It made me fall in love with the Arthurian legends.

    well.. that is a hard question.. coz there r many..
    but i can say .. i loved reading JANE EYRE by Charlotte bronte.. it made me really feel as if i was jane.. & the story of the gothic love, is really unforgetable.

    CHRISTMAS CAROL.. for charles dickens.. is also .. lovely.. & i liked it alot..
    Twilight.. for stephanie myers...........

    lol.. long list coming.. but these i can say the best.

    It happened calmly, on its own,
    The way the night comes when day is done."

    Some day I really want to read that. I saw the miniseris they did for it on tv. It was quite good and I am obcessed with Arthruian Lore.
