Hellooo! Do you happen to know some book recs by our beloved dork aka jude law? :) Good night!

His favorite author is Iris Murdoch, so he’d recommend any of her books but especially ‘The Sea, The Sea.

Furthermore, he recommended:

  • ‘The Hobbit’ by J. R. R. Tolkien
  • ‘The Indian In The Cupboard’ by Lynne Reid Banks
  • ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • ‘Beware of Pity’ and ‘Chess Story’ by Stefan Zweig
  • ‘Look Homeward Angel’ by Thomas Wolfe
  • ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
  • every ‘Sherlock Holmes’ story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as his other work
  • the ‘Harry Potter’ books by J. K. Rowling
  • ‘Emil and the Detectives’ by Erich Kästner
  • ‘Cold Mountain’ by Charles Frazier.
  • ‘The Songlines’ by Bruce Chatwin 
  • ‘Red Badge of Courage’ by Stephen Crane
  • ‘Fluke’ by James Herbert 
  • everything by Shakespeare, especially ‘Hamlet’
  • Alexander McCall Smith’s books for children

As well as Charles Schultz‘Peanuts’, the comic-book ‘Watchmen’ and the graphic novel ‘From Hell’.

He also loves the poem ‘And the wave sings because it is moving’by Philip Larkin.

Authors he recommended, without naming a specific book, include: Søren Kierkegaard, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Albert Camus, Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg and Salman Rushdie.


Some of it is literature for children because he either read it to his kids and fell in love with it or is still in love with it since he was a child.
The list is certainly incomplete, by the way, because I honestly cannot keep track with his recommendations. He reads like four (4) books at the same time usually.

Me: Billy Kaplan is a complex character with a great backstory. He is a deep and valuable member of the Marvel continuity.

Also me: this boi is 60% Extra™ and 40% cape
