    Three Best books!

    My three best books are varied choices:
    Here they are in random order-

    1) The Green Mile, Stephen King.

    2) Seven Habits of Highly Effective people, Stephen Covey.

    3) The Goose is Out, OSHO.

    The books of Osho are of a little bit different taste.

    Putting just three is really tough.....

    1) Catcher In The Rye - J D Salinger
    2) LOTR - J R R Tolkein
    3) The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand

    In that order.

    Amit, Ayn Rand just carried forward her philosophy of "Objectivism" in "Atlas Shrugged". I don't think we can call "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged" as Part 1 and Part 2.

    "Zen and..." is a fantastic book. Me also liked it very much.
  11. tejas

    tejas ..........

    The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
    The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
    Girl Interrupted - Susanna Kaysen

    I also love the Harry Potter series and The Perry Mason series.

    Phantom- Slave market of Mukaar parts I and II - indrajal comics
    Mandrake - Alena the Enchantrass parts I and II - Indrajal comics
    Jataka Tales - Amar Chitra Katha

    the joy reading these comic books gave me as a kid cannot be matched by any book.

    Yeah Subhro, Let Us C is such a book which changed my life. My interest in programming is due to "Let Us C" only. And so, I'm a programmer today. I think C is the best computer language. So, cheers up to Yashyant Kanethkar.

    Aleric,I didn't mean that it was part 1 & 2 .I just said that it was 'like' part 1 & 2 since both the books really dealt with the same philosophy .
