The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Worth Reading, Ernest Hemingway, Rise, Books Worth, Writing Style, Favorite Books, Novels, Sun, Lost Generation
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway favorite book ever!
Earnest Hemingway’s quintessential story of the post-World War I Lost Generation remains relevant eighty-five years after its 1926 publication and provides a poignant look at the disillusionment and angst in an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions. The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation, The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway’s masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Books Worth Reading - Part 2 - Funk Gumbo Radio: http://www.live365.com/stations/sirhobson and "Like" us at: https://www.facebook.com/FUNKGUMBORADIO
Most ridiculous claims used to challenge classic novels. Flavorwire
One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This is my favorite book of all time!!! Heard that the movie is good but I still hesitate to watch... Just affraid it would kills my affection as what movies usually do to great books I've read 😤 Gregory Peck really intrigues me tho 😆 one day maybe...
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Worth Reading, The Office, Games Of Thrones, Books Worth, George R R, George Martin, Thrones Books, Books Reading, George Rr
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.
A Game of Thrones (Book) : Martin, George R. R. : A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO. Here is the first volume in George R. R. Martin's magnificent cycle of novels that includes A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords . As a whole, this series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern fantasy, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Magic, mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill these pages and transport us to a world unlike any we have ever experienced. Already hailed as a classic, George R. R. Martin's stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction. A GAME OF THRONES Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
