I've read many really good books but if I had to only choose one I'd say: Rant by Chuck Palahniuk. It's the only book I've read from that author so far but it is one of the creepiest, twisted and best written book I've got.

I really love anything by Dostoevsky, but my favourite book (more like series) is The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Nothing can beat science fiction and humour.

Well it's kind of a tie...

Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland

Cast of Shadows by Kevin Guilfoile ... the book was so disturbing but intriguing... after I finished it I was just like "Wow...what the fuck", it stuck with me. It's one of those psychological books and it deals with cloning humans. The main character is a doctor involved with cloning. He clones deceased people (just once) for couples who can't have children but want one ... they think of it as giving the deceased person another chance at life.... But the doctor's daughter is brutally raped and murdered and her killer wasn't caught but he left his DNA behind...so the doctor gets the idea to clone the killer so he can find out who did it.

The Catcher In The Rye is pretty bitchin'. Anything by Chuck Palahniuk or Chuck Klosterman.

I really enjoyed "Tallinna narrid ja narrikesed" by Eduard Bornhöhe.
I don't like other works by him, but this is a great book.

"Pisuhänd" by Eduard Vilde is brilliant too.
It's actually a play, but it makes an extremely good reading material.

I've seen a movie of the same title, seems like it was based on that book, wasn't it?

I can't choose one, really. But, I think it'd be The Demonata: Lord Loss by Darren Shan, mostly because of writing style. Otherwise, I have serveral favorite series instead of one favorite book.

I love Speak, and I recently read Ordinary People.
Ordinary People was a really good story, I just wasn't too fond of the writing technique that the author used.

I read too many great books to only decide on one... so I would say Harry Potter and the prisoner of azkaban and almost all books by sarah dessen.
