<p>John Dies at the End, it's a horror/comedy and freakin' awesome, just read it </p>
<p>anything by Terry Pratchett, especially Good Omens, absolutely hilarious and he writes a kind of fantasy satire but it's still amazing and there are good lessons (I suggest you start off with THUD! but it doesn't matter where you start, it's a variety of discworld series and not always connected or sequential)</p>
<p>Sherlock Holmes series because they're awesome and not enough people read them</p>
Some of the best books ever (in my opinion) are Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (if you like history and/or romance)...
<p>you made me cry because I hate this book and even the memory of it. It's terrible and boring and I'm going to ruin it so no one ever reads it: Heathcliff dies a byronic jerk and there is no happy ending for Catherine since she dies before him. Jane Eyre is a slightly better book (at least the ending is happier, and it's less whiny and kinda more realistic) by another Bronte sister. If you must read something historic and romance read Middlemarch or Shakespeares' Midsummer Nights' Dream (which is kinda freaky and full of Shakespeare sex jokes).</p>
<p>I like reading plays and stories like plays so if you want some good ones to read are The Rules of Comedy, Cabaret, Les Mis., and anything else that involves prostitutes are usually good.</p>
<p>I really like Dean Koontz books and the Odd series is really good. But I think his best is The Taking because it actually freaked me out at times and it's easy to get absorbed into. From the Corner of His Eyes is another one I really like because it deals with quantum physics and murder and the 1st chapter just threw me off which hardly happens to me in a book, I read that chapter a few times and I still don't get the psychopath. I don't know that I want to get his Frankenstein since I've already read the original one and I guess that monster just never really got me. Stephan King is also good but I feel like he's too into himself and his books kinda got predictable at The Dark Tower deal. I think some of his best books were IT, Insomnia, Rose Madder (I really like this book because it was the first book I had ever read, um...my brother read King to me for bed time a lot), Desperation, The Shining.</p>
<p>I would suggest you read horror and humor books because those are always the fastest to get through, I mean, you'll finish +500 page books in a week and everyone will be impressed and think you're smart when really you're just having fun.</p>
