Gone Fishing Might be Sometime
Louis XIV and Twenty Thousand Frenchmen.
the man that went up a hill and came down a moutain by Ivor Monger
it's simple, evocative, impactful
Something Wicked This Way Comes
There is something about that title that has always stuck with me.
That one has always stuck with me too.
One word titles are sometimes fun. Uglies is a good example of one that made be pick the book up just because it's a strange title.
I can't really say which ones are favorites. Philip K. Dick always had interesting titles, such as:
A Scanner Darkly
Now Wait for Last Year
Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike
The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch
and so on.
I always liked the title of Jack Williamson's classic "Darker Than You Think."
This is a tough one ... I'd have to go with Secondhand Lions by John Whitman. I know it's a novelization of a film, but still a great title, imo.
"Darker Than You Think'' that sounds way too dark for my liking lol
interesting formation of words...it does have an effect when one plays with the order of things.
humm...it is simply effective in terms of imagery.
Yes, that is a good title.
I really like the catcher in the rye
Also falling angels
bradbury's is also a brilliant one... and one of my favorite stories, as well as a favorite title...
there are lots of my favorite...but i have this certain one not a book but a short story it was entitled "The Gift"
I've always liked Hemingway's titles
A Farewell to Arms
The Sun Also Rises
I also agree with Atlas Shrugged
'The Day My Bum Went Psycho'.
How could you not pick it up?
The Armour of Contempt
Severe, unpleasant, humourless, and grim.
humm....oddity never fails to amase.
how is one suppose to think of this title?
or is it one of those books you read in the toilets?
there is a time and a place for everything.
I love The Sun Also Rises. I can't think of a more poetic title that demands to be unpacked. A Moveable Feast is another title I love of his.
It fits the book perfectly.
