I’m stealing this meme idea from Bibliomom because, Hell, it’s just a good idea. She got it from somewhere else anyway…
One book that changed my life
Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. This book showed me what a comic book could be. If you don’t believe me, read this book, and when you get to issue 11, the next-to-the-last page, get back with me.
One Book That I’ve Read More Than Once
1984 by George Orwell. I was never the kind of kid who went around trying to start little revolutions against "the establishment" or who constantly saw conspiracies on every lunch menu, but this book spoke to me even then. One lesson I learned from it was the best way to control a population is to invent a threat to it.
HONORABLE MENTION: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I had to read this one twice for school, and both times I put it off until the last minute, so I had to read it in one sitting. Let me emphasize this: I, having Attention Deficit Disorder, read this book twice, each time in one sitting. It’s that good.
One Book That Made Me Laugh
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. If you have never read this book, or the others in the series, do so. Now.
One Book That Made Me Cry
Blankets by Craig Thompson. This graphic novel haunted me for days. When Raina breaks his heart, I feel like she broke mine. Bitch.
One Book That I Wish I Had Written
Neuromancer by William Gibson. Definitive cyberpunk.
