books that the world should read

Kristana asked me what books I would recommend, so here is a short list off of the top of my head.

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
Startide Rising - David Brin
the Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
It - Stephen King
Armor - John Steakley
Night of the Avenging Blowfish - John Welter
The World According to Garp - John Irving
Matilda - Roald Dahl
Catch-22 - Joseph Heller
the Prince of Tides - Pat Conroy
the Black Company - Glen Cook
Guilty Pleasures - Laurell K. Hamilton
Hyperion - Dan Simmons
the Winds of War - Herman Wouk
the Choirboys - Joseph Wambaugh
Good Omens - Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

I don't stick to only one genre, as you can see. Also, I am sure I am forgetting some books that should be on this list, but these are all amazing. Some comics should also be on here:

the Sandman
Knights of the Dinner Table
the Preacher
the Watchmen
Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
