Re: Your five favourite books of all time.
I appeared in a show once that was banned before opening night.

Just like most young lads back in the early fifties I was fascinated by R.L. Stevenson's Treasure Island - saw the movie and read the book more than once. Visited his home in Samoa while on a Hawaiian cruise out of Sydney a couple of years ago. Earlier I had downloaded the book to my iPad. Not long after leaving Samoa I got the early stages of the dreaded lurgy, and was confined to my cabin for two days as we crossed the dateline. So, Treasure Island was re-read on Thursday and Thursday with room service.

1. Crime and Punishment.. Had to read it for literature class. Never forgot it and read it a few times. The use of annalogy and metaphore amazes me. The imagery is extraordinary
2 Wuthering Heights vivid rich characters and towering romance.
3. The series of Winnie the pooh no matter how old I get I still find great charm in the marvellous world of AAMilne. I love the characters and those pictures are a constant delight. Then there sre the poems The anthology Now we wre six and When we were very young. The kings Breakfast is still a favourite.
4 The secret river. A great read
5 it. By Stephen King gripping read
