well i have read too many good books I cant evenr emmeber them all but here is a big MUST NOT READ. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. It starts kind of cool with a futuristic setting where humans are mass produced and everyone is happy. After those first 100 pages, the crap fest goes on and on.

I didn't think Brave New World was that bad when we had to read it for school, way better than Cue for Treason and crap like that.

Another good book is Until They Bring the Streetcars Back.

Here's the description of the book.

Book Description
Until They Bring The Streetcars Back serves up a nostalgic journey through the streets of post-war 1949 Saint Paul, those wistful days of ten-cent sodas, big band music, and burning leaves. Stanley West weaves rollicking humor, riveting suspense and a bittersweet love story into the fabric of those optimistic times.

A harmless prank, a chance conversation and Cal Gant (in the friendly neighborhoods of his idyllic life) stumbles onto the naked face of cruelty, incest and murder. When he attempts to rescue a strange and haunting girl from the slaughterhouse her life has become, he finds himself in a heart-stopping struggle with her ruthless father, leading Cal to the brink of self-doubt, terror and death itself. Can he find within himself the backbone to stand against the horror, the daring to concoct some scheme to set Gretchen free? Until They Bring The Streetcars Back is the gripping story of what Cal does.

Oh god yes...endless examples of Christian symbolism and all sorts of crap in that baby...I hated that.

One of the best books I've ever read was A Tale of Two Cities...I seriously hated it through like the first 200 pages, but after that all the confusing crap came together and I absolutely loved it...it's very tough to read and I wouldn't suggest doing so without a good English teacher.
