Welcome to the Cult

Gender: Male
Location: Somewhere over there

Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien still stands as one of my favorite books. Andrew Klavan has written some books I love like Werewolf Cop and True Crime. True Allegiance by Ben Shapiro is a great novel.

But I tend to like non-fiction books the best. Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith and the Federalist Papers by Hamilton, Madison, and John Jay are up there. Basic Economics and the Quest for Cosmic Justice by Thomas Sowell as well.

Definitely The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I read it over and over again and it is so inspiring!

My fave fiction book is The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom.

Basic Economics and Wealth of Nations are your favorite non-fiction books. Those are nigh impossible to get through what lol. So repetitive.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy is the best novel I've read.

I just love his writing style. Makes things feel almost biblical in importance. His ability to paint a vivid picture with a few words is second to none. He can describe a setting in a few sentences and it will feel more real and vivid to me than what most other others could accomplish with full pages of description.

Yeah, I had to read it in Sociology A level 30 odd years ago and pretty much remember thinking exactly that. Vivid! Very good book. Ian Banks is another guy who could describe, but he'd do it right to the last rivet.

Hmm, I believe we must be thinking of two different books. The Road was only written about 10 years ago.
