Arizona Nights

by Stewart Edward White

Enjoyed this book. It's a collection of stories about Cowboys, outlaws, sailors, and ranchers. Some are funny, some are serious, and at least one (the last one) is thoughtful and poignant. All interwoven with vivid descriptions of the old west. Read it, you'll like it.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

by Jules Verne

This is the best work on science fiction I've ever read... It is imaginative, descriptive, thrilling, yet calm... I'd say this is Verne's best work.

A Journey to the Centre of the Earth

by Jules Verne

Apparently being one of the very few with literacy on this site (how ironic), I'd like to type my response in basic English, sparing any readers the issue of decoding abbreviations and other abuses of the language.

While I never did get the chance to read the book for leisure, I did find myself in the unique situation of reading it for a school project (an Advanced Placement World Literature Class), and found myself positively devouring its text.

Along with that, however, it was to my horror that I noticed I was unable to find the book again. Luckily, through this site, I was able to find not only a digital edition of the book, but one of the exact same translation.

In short, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth is pure, first-rate science fiction, and for any Verne fans out there a positive must-read. Top notch from perhaps the best author of his time.

The Bible

by Anonymous

worth reading because it is a book that has shaped western history and culture for since Constantine. If you have interest in mythological or archaic literature and how it affects thought and culture into the present day, the bible is a must read. If not it will be a struggle to complete. I've read the whole thing and it's decently interesting historically, not as a document of historical fact, but as an ancient piece of literature.

If you're a militant christian you'll probably defend it. If you're a militant atheist you'll probably go out of your way to spam the reviews. We get it. Let people who actually want to talk about the literature give actual reviews.
