      My favorite book of all time is probably Going Bovine by Libba Bray.

      This used to be the case for me, too (not surprising, since AYB recommended the book to me), but I recently read a book that beats Going Bovine in my opinion. It's Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.

      My favorite book will always be Huckleberry Finn. Some might say it was dry or boring but I highly disagree. This book offered an adventure not only through the physical landscape of down the Mississippi River, but for Huck it was a spiritual experience in which he drastically changed. He realized the flaws of society and that all men are in fact equal despite what others may say. Being on the river with Tom, his black friend, Huck sees that skin color makes no difference in whether or not how good a friend is and that any race of person can be your best lifelong friend. It was also a testament to Mark Twain's feelings about society and how he personified some of the beliefs of society at the time through various characters in the book. This book has also been deemed highly controversial even though it only represents what life was like back then.


      Time to make a masterpiece!

      I had to read Moby Dick for an assignment like midway through this semester and I feel like I could write about it time and time again.

      So I'd say it my current favorite for the amount of material I could get out of it.

      John Green is excellent, I recommend The Fault in our Stars by him!

      I'd say it's a tossup between 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth. I need to read more Jules Verne books; he was a master of scifi before scifi was even a major genre.

      My favourite book currently would have to be A confederacy of dunces by John Kennedy Toole.

      As someone who likes early sci-fi what are your thoughts/experiences with HG Wells?

      Actually, I haven't read any works by HG Wells. The sad fact is I rarely read for fun (unless it's MLP fanfiction). Over the years, my teachers have made reading such a chore that I've lost my taste for it

      That is a shame but I understand you completely, the education system seems to be surprisingly adept at killing peoples interest in reading whether it be through selecting awful books or making you analyze good texts until all the joy is sucked out of them. However once you leave that environment and start reading books that you enjoy and not ones that you are either told to read or that you think you should be reading (this one is a real killer) you might just get your taste back.
