The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

I love West Side Story, which has ace after ace up its sleeves with its songs and music. America is fantastic. And a lot of its themes about the tension between communities are still relevant today.
For years I struggled with the chorus of The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite by R.E.M., which goes "Call me when you try to wake her". I had always thought it was something like "Calling Jamaica".
Isn't Anything and Loveless - two excellent albums. I don't think Loveless is The Most Amazing Thing Ever but it does sound gorgeous, and it's certainly one of the best final albums made by any act.

I like Stankonia and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below by Outkast, both great albums. I recently got 3 Feet High and Rising by De La Soul and really enjoy that too. Madvillainy by Madvillain is another good album from more recent years.

Hugely moving an...

I do love most of the FF games I've played to some extent, but my favourite is FFVIII, just edging out FFIX (the latter being the first in the series I ever played). I know that VIII is the Marmite game of the series (people seem to either love it or hate it) but I remember falling in love with it t...
