Daniel Radcliffe: Top 5 Favorite Books!

Daniel Radcliffe: Top 5 Favorite Books!

Daniel Radcliffe shares the top 5 books that influenced his life with Scholastic and –surprise surprise–one of the Harry Potter books makes the list!

The 21-year-old actor said, “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.”

Daniel also loved “The Old Man & 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.”

He found “Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas” hilarious: “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.”

Other books that made Daniel‘s list: “Germinal,” and “The Master and Margarita”

Daniel is also pictured at the Trevor Live: An Evening Benefiting the Trevor Project on Monday (June 27) in NYC.
