"Written 60 years ago or so, it is every bit as applicable today as it was when it was crafted. The themes transcend generations, and every time you read it, you pick up on something new. There are so many subtleties that are missed upon first reading ,which is one of the reasons I look forward to reading it every time."
"I love reading series as when I finish one book I have another to look forward too. This is another series that has well developed characters, relationships and plot twists. I love that they chose to use black and white as it sets the mood. I am a huge fan of dystopian stories! Have read through this one a few times as well. Love it!"
"My favorite book would be the hobbit. I first read it when I was 12, it introduced me to the genre and have been obsessed with fantasy novels ever since. Harry Potter being another favorite but then the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon was amazing), the Unwanteds, Harley Merlin, Any of the Gracling Realm books, and anything Rick Roidian or in the Rick Rordian Presents collection.
Of course I love to read lots of different books but the Hobbit opened my eyes to the magic books can bring to your life."
"From the story line, to the history of Residential Schools, to the music by Gord Downie and his passion to promote Reconciliation there are so many reasons why this book is my #1!"
"My favorite book when I was in school was “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck. The book taught me that the people we tend to overlook can be the most interesting and intriguing people, and to give everyone a chance."
"I've always been a fan of dystopian literature, and this one ranks as one of my all-time favourites. I love the harsh social criticism that Bradbury describes in his denouncement of mindless technology for which we have surrendered our lives. His criticism of the anti-intellectual movement is also as sharp as ever. Every time I read this novel, I feel like it becomes more and more relevant to our own world."
