    Just finished "when breath becomes air"
    And it's definitely my #1 now.

    What's yours?

    Meh it was ok the end felt a little lacklustre though, stabbing the dude while he was sleeping was poor form.

    I dunno what my #1 favourite is, depends what mood I'm in what my answer would be. I pretty much exclusively read fiction though, Non-fiction doesn't really interest me.

    Count of monte Cristo. I had never seen any of the films and only knew vague details of the story and I was totally blown away. It's the perfect novel IMO.

    Most badass line in any book - "One"

    Choke has gotta be my favorite. Survivor and invisible monsters are up there too. I've honestly not read Pygmy but I recognized the title
