Post Daniel Radcliffe & Emma Thompson list most influential books, including Harry Potter

As part of their You Are What You Read campaign, which lists books that have been most influential in readers' lives, Scholastic publishing got hold of Daniel Radcliffe's five most influential books. That list, via TLC, can be found below; of particular note to fans may be number five.


1. The Old Man and the Sea
"I think the Old Man and Sea was probably the first book by a really classic author that I ever read, and it was then that I realized that things were classics for a reason, and they weren’t all just really, really, really hard work."

2. Germinal
"Germinal by Emile Zola was the first sort of longer and more European novel that I ever read, and I remember reading it in like five days. It’s a long book, and I’m a slow reader, but I just did nothing else."

3. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
"It was given to me on my 15th birthday by a friend, and I just thought it was the funniest thing I ever read and kind of amazing and captured the period of time brilliantly."

4. The Master and Margarita
"The Master and Margarita is my favorite, favorite book in the world ever by Mikhail. To me it’s the greatest exploration of the human imagination, and it’s about forgiveness and life and history, and it’s just the most incredible book that I’ve ever read; I read it once and then I read it almost immediately again."

5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
"I think it’s fair to say that if we’re talking about the five books that have most influenced my life, I think it would be pretty churlish of me not to say Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for giving me everything that I have and everything that I will have."
Dan's Harry Potter costar Emma Thompson (Sybill Trelawney) also released a list of her five influential books, including the complete works of Sherlock Holmes. Her list can be found here.

I know Dan likes the history channel international, but has he read many history books?

I've read all of them except Germinal, I have to agree with Dan that they're awesome. I'll have to order the one I haven't read yet...it can't be bad if he's recommended it, can it? Haha.

Hemmingway's a genius...but Dan a slow reader? In one interview he talkes about a book he had just started, and in another interview a day later he mentions he started a different book. And both were long books...weird. But I love Dan!!!!

Nah, he's said he's a slow reader in the past, and that he tends to read multiple books at the same time. Hence why you'll see him talking about reading one book one day, and another the next.

The Old Man And The Sea is one of my most favorite works of literature. In fact that's where I fell in love with written word. I know I know I'm a dork, but whatever. lol!
