List up to 3 of the:
- The Plot Against America by Philip Roth. This was way too plausible and therefore, very scary.
- Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin. This scared the living daylights out of me back in the '70s when I read it.
- The Other by Tom Tryon. I'm not sure "scary" is the right word, but it sure gave me chills. And nearly everything by EA Poe.
- Most moving (sad and/or happy)
- A Patch of Blue by Elizabeth Kata. An excellent, and sad, movie, too, one of the better adaptations in my opinion.
- Shardik by Richard Adams. I cried, I laughed, I went through all the emotions Kelderek went through in the book.
- Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Actually, there are dozens of books I could add here, ie To Kill a Mockingbird.
- "The Man Who Came to Dinner," a play by George Kaufman and Moss Hart. Probably, my favorite play to read. I read a lot of plays during the '70s.
- Where's Poppa? by Robert Klane. Became a very odd movie starring Ruth Gordon and George Segal.
- Though I could list a lot of non-fiction/humor books, such as essays by Woody Allen, that sort of thing, I want to keep this list as close to fiction as possible, so I'll pick Richard Hooker's M*A*S*H as the third book.
