    Northern Lights (The Golden Compass) by Philip Pullman. 10x better than the film. I don't even read anymore but I've specifically gone back to reread this book because of how awesome it is.

    Dope, I usually read academic books for school rn, trying to get back into the habit of reading O.o

    The movie was crap, but I am sure the book will be better, thanks for the rec :P

    The Catcher in the Rye is a rather good book. Had a bit of controversy around the time of being published in the USA in 1953 (I think). Without spoiling the book, it has the theme growing up, changing from a child/teenager to being a fully fledged adult and living in this new, not very pleasant adult world. Would definitely recommend

    I had to read The Catcher in the Rye for school two years ago I believe. A good book that has a lot of deeper meaning which has a message that is somewhat subversive. I really enjoyed it, thank you for the recommendation.

    I actually haven't seen the movie so I can't say, but it's really great.

    May I recommend you don't read Robert Jordan's 'The Wheel Of Time' series.
    It is an interesting first book, I'll give him that, but after that it just goes down hill: 13 books each 700-1000 pages of tiny print and bulking out the story line way in excess of anything necessary the Americans rave about it being better than the Lord of the Rings, but really it is an over-rated incredibly boring mundane and repetitive waste of time.
    I have even managed to find spelling mistakes an grammatical errors, it's not even because it's the American spelling it's just literally wrong.
    It is also so slow, nothing happens for about 600 pages in the middle of each book and the first 100 pages of the next one are just recapping what happened in the last one.
    Just don't waste your time.
