Most Helpful Guy

  • Its a manga, but i would recommend Beserk to anyone. if you can handle the subject matter.

    The same Stephen King/Richard Bachman collection that had the running man, also had one called the long walk that was good.
    A clockwork orange will always be one of, if not the best out there.

    • Was Berserk adapted into an anime or possibly a video game? I think my cousin has a copy of the game, I think it was called Sword of the Berserk and something to do with gut's rage. Or I might be mistaken..

    • It was adapted twice, once as a series of 30 minute episodes, and recently as two movies. Both only go so far into the story. the manga is very long and still not done.

    • And yes it was a video game.

  • Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" would make a good addition to that list. I still think about it regularly, at least four years after first reading it.

    I've read some others which I wouldn't recommend. :)

    • My friend once mentioned that to me. I think I should definitely get a copy :)

    • Show All
    • Hahahaha if you're talking about possible emotional combustion, don't worry, my family is tough as nails. hahaha I watch The Notebook with them and not one of them had shed a tear and We watched all of the Saw movies together.. Hahahaha XD

    • Well THEN it will be a-okay. :) "Enjoy."

  • You should read John Brunner "Stand on Zanzibar" and "The Sheep Look Up"

    • Will do! I'll definitely add that to my bucket list XD

  • Does the Dune series count?
