Can you tell us a brief summary of your favorite book? Why do you like the book? Who's the author? What's his background?

The Caves of Steel (1954)  The Naked Sun (1957)  The Robots of Dawn (1983)  Robots and Empire (1985)  All written by Isaac Asimov, I can't believe I read them all. What a nerd.

I like Asimov. I need to get my hands on some of his books soon.  As a child, I have a complete set of "Isaac Asimov's Encyclopedia of the Universe". I think that's why I like sci-fi too. To

To be on topic, one of my favorite books is Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. 

I read this book in high school and I still have a copy of it until now. 

Douglas Adams also wrote for the classic Doctor Who series...

The 6th book of HHGG was written by Eoin Colfer based on noted Adams left before he died. Sadly, the writing style is so different that I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first 5 parts of HHGG.

1984 - George Orwell

I got an interest reading it when it was made as an example in one of the  marketing training I attended. I also got a chance to watch the old movie of it.

Brief: In a time when all are controlled by the government, and watches all the moves of the populace and constant barrage of propaganda. The main characters got in-love,rebels and indulge in subversiveness. 

Why do you like the book: The subject itself is timeless, the political and social landscape is still relevant up to this day and the sexual content I can consider as a bonus.

Back ground: Set in UK (known in the book and the movie as Airstrip One)

A good read, one can wonder how the author relates to the events that tranpires in the novel,perhaps due to his personal experiences living in those times.
