I'll have to check my bookshelf to see if I missed a great one.
Love the Orson Scott Card.
I vetoed the Hunger Games because it would freak him out. Can throw Fear and Loathing and Clockwork Orange in this group.
Fahrentheit 451 sucked. One of the very small handful of books that I started reading and did not finish.
Read the Road. Too dreary. No Country was good.
Was not crazy about the Martian Chronicles or any Vonnegut.
Will add Gatsby and Animal Farm to the list.
