To many to name them all. Of Mice and Men John Steinbech, Deeply moving, story of the decisions we face in life and how one moment can come along and destroy the good we have found. Five People You Meet In Heaven Mitch Albom, I just kept reading, it was like ok get to the point, already and even feeling this way I still wanted to know what each segment of the book was about, I knew that the journey of getting to the point was as important as getting to the point, not only couldn't I put it down but it is a life altering or perception or perspective altering story. How Much For Just the Planet John Ford It is a star trek book and I am fan that alone is not what made it so hard to put down, I laughed so much sometimes I laughed so hard my eyes closed and I couldn't finish reading the book. If ever the time comes as remakes are done, and the do get new younger actors and actresses to play the parts made imortal by the original cast this story should be made into a script, it is funny, and yet the Star Trek message that was important to Gene Roddenberry is in tact. Most things by Peter David, since his characters are so great, he is a true story teller as Louis L'Amour was a story teller. which is way above mere authors and writers, and usually he can make me laugh. Flowers in the Attic V.C. Andrews While aspects of the story were horrific and you could not imagine that this could ever be real, it left you wondering, the story was so well written did this happen to this woman in some way or in part for her to be able to come up with this, and despite what took place in the story you had to know what was going to happen next how events in the story unfolded not only that by time I got to read the book both Flowers in the Attic and its sequel were released and I had borrowed both books from a friend on a Friday afternoon, I returned them on Sunday afternoon, the stories were so can't put down that I couldn't put either down even when finished with the first I had to read the second immediately.
