Watership Down

At the risk of insulting my intelligence quotient, I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request about the specific tomes that as a youth I would read.
But I'll just say I like lots of pretty pictures!

I liked Marathon Man as a kid.

I thought it was cool how the early chapters alternated between two entirely different stories, but in a single later chapter you discover the deep relationship when the two stories unexpectedly merge. I was caught off guard and didn't see it coming.

The movie obviously could never physically pull this off. It's literally a textbook example of a why the movie could never be as good as the book.

Any questions?

Great Read. Nebula winner.

“A thoughtful, fearlessly low-key novel about the role of our species on the planet . . . laid out for us with an originality and a clarity that few would deny.”—The New York Times Book Review

Quoted from lowbeau67:

Seventh grade my buddy loaned me this book for over
the summer. Finished the entire 6 book series while in high
school. Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Fantastic![quoted image]

Incredible series. I'm surprised that some notable SciFi series haven't transitioned to today's readers... author's like Frederick Pohl (Heechee Saga) and Andre Norton (lots of different series) have books that are as relatable today as they were 40 years ago.

I started reading Hardy Boys books when I was in second or third grade. Wish I would have kept all of them. Started collecting them again about 15 years ago. They're still a lot of fun to read, and I've come up with a couple of ideas that would fit nicely with the series. When I retire in a few years I plan on writing a couple of them myself.

I Loved those. I also collect them too. Read them voraciously in
grade school. Also read this series and I've collected them also.
Alfred Hitchcock and the three investigators. It was great being
a kid in the seventies.
