What's YOUR Bible?

Post by Sgt. Pepper on Sun Mar 23, 2008 2:19 am

What peice of literature holds the most signifiance for you? Is it a monumental novel, an essay of sorts, a non-fiction masterpeice, a napkin you wrote on, hell, maybe even be a Bible. Talk about how it influences you and impacts the world.

For me, at this point it has to be "America (The Book)" by Jon Stewart and the Daily show staff. I love its cold, satirical look at modern democracy and its flaws.

The Bible is up there on my list seeing as it is THE Bible.

Although "Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs" by Chuck Klosterman was a fantastic read and I recommend his books to any music fan.

Hey an actual answer! Nice. I've read two of Geoge Orwells books, Animal Farm and 1984. Great books, I've heard of the book/essay Civil Disobience and Hunter Thompsons book aswell.

Fear and Loathing is an awesome book. I've never really liked anything by George Orwell and I really dislike The Great Gatsby.

But Fear and Loathing is amazing. Read that book.

I don't really have a book that I would call my "Bible" but I really enjoyed House of Leaves and Ender's Game.

George Orwell is a great author, I read Animal Farm in Middle School and we went in depth about the book and it's meaning toward corruption, dictatorships, etc.

I don't read many books :[

I hated everything about that book. Especially the ending, it reminded me a lot of Citizen Kane. Which only made me angrier of course.

it wasn't bad. me and my friends made a lot of petophelia puns as we read it in class tho.

EDIT: I liked "stupid White Men" by Michael Moore

say what you will, it was funny and an eye-opener. a few fcts are a little out of date though.

Oh, yes, the Zombie Survival Guide is essential.

"On the Road" is a fabulous book, and I haven't read "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" yet, but it's on my list to read.

As for my bibles:
Catcher In The Rye
Nine Stories - Both by J.D. Salinger

American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis

The Year of Endless Sorrows - Adam Rapp

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey

I am Charlotte Simmons - Tom Wolfe

On the Road - Jack Kerouac

god.I just love books. I could go on forever.

I started too when I was about fourteen years old. The thing is, I had no idea what acid even was, so I didn't much understand the book and found it was boring. I also had a lot of other things going on. Potentially, I'd like to pick it up again.

I'm definitely a fan of the Beat Generation of writers.



and Charles Bukowski.

With a name like Bukowski, how can you not be a cynical drunken writer?
