That's a big one for me, too...but the part where the family goes to live in Europe for a while almost kills it for me every time. [yawn]

Plus, I saw the movie before I read the book, so there's that.

That's my favourite of his too, Yvonne! It certainly changed my views of what literature is supposed to 'do'.

There can be only one for me. "Lord of the Rings."

Swear to gods, I tried to like Tolkien. I tried, and I failed.

At one time I would have said The Lord of the Rings. I've read it about 20 times, so obviously I really, really like it.

I don't know that I can still say it's my favorite, but without question it has been the most influential on me. I fully credit that book with making me want to write. I don't know if I'd have aspired to tell stories had The Lord of the Rings not come into my life -- and that's no small thing.

Taft never says anything in 5 words if he can use 200. :D Never change, it's great.
