    Something different: Favorite Book(s)

    Since there seems to be about 50 "favorite [insert noun]" threads, I decided to make one semi-intellectually oriented (it's been driving me insane).

    My favorites books would have to be:

    Neuromancer - William Gibson (a possible correlation to my name? )

    The Divine Comedy (Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradisio) - Dante Alighieri (don't know about favorite translation, however)

    The Dark Elf Trilogy - R.A. Salvatore (a possible correlation to my "location"?)

    Legacy of the Drow - R.A. Salvatore

    The Clerical Quartet - R.A. Salvatore

    Screw it; anything by R.A. Salvatore

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (The whole series, although it does stagnate and lose it's charm in "Mostly Harmless") - Douglas Adams

    Yeah, I had to do Latin and Greek at Highschool


    Unknown.........(The Teine Bo Cullaine) Errrrrrrrrr........... that is written in Irish, and is the oldest piece of literature written in prose rather than verse.

    It means "The Cattle Raid of the White Bull".............. it is totally pre-Christian............... like one of the High Kings' wives offers "her warm and friendly thighs" for the loan of the Brown Bull............
