Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books are
the Lord of the rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I enjoy reading the Lord of the rings because of the great imagination that must’ve taken for J.R.R. Tolkien to create such a vivid world. It is such a great adventure story and is just fun to read. J.R.R. Tolkien does a very good job creating characters and a world with unique countries that point you in and you want to know what happens to them and what their future is.
Harry Potter and the deathly hollows by JK Rowling
I enjoyed reading the entire Harry Potter series, but would have to say the deathly hollows is my favorite if I have to choose one. I think it sums up the series very well. Ties up loose ends and answers questions, and the whole book is very interesting from beginning to end. I would have to say that the characters in the series Harry Potter are very vivid and very likable making you want to know what will happen to them.
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
I remember reading Huckleberry Finn as a child and thinking what a fun adventure. I mostly like this book because of the memories I have of reading it with my parents at that time. I also remember reading it and listening to it being read by Garrison Keillor on a trip with my parents to the American West. It is just a well written fun adventure. The characters it creates are very vivid and likable.
I could basically copy cut-and-paste my answer from Huckleberry Finn for this book. For I love it for the same reasons that I love Huckleberry Finn.
Moby Dick fire Herman Melville
I remember reading Moby Dick a long time ago and like the adventure thinking nothing of the symbolism. I remember reading this book as a child well having it read to me. At the time thinking what a great extent your story it was. Later reading and can I found it full of rich symbolism and such vivid scene of whaling and adventure and the high seas.
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
I like this book for it was when the first books that I remember my father reading to me. As you can tell from the answers for the other books I enjoy adventure stories. Treasure Island is no different as far as I’m concerned just a true adventure story. The story of a adventure find treasure on a mysterious island. It is the story you can’t resist it has treasure, a ocean voyage, swordfights gunfights and Pirates and who can resist that in an adventure story
What do you read for pleasure?
