What is your favorite title for a book? (Not the book itself, just the title).

Mine:
Heroes Die
-an epic title for an epic book
Before They Are Hanged
-comes from this epic quote: 'We should forgive our enemies, but not before they are hanged.'
Last Argument of Kings
-I just love this title

 

ETA:
The Lies of Locke Lamora
Red Seas Under Red Skies

Alliteration apparently always awarded accolades.

The Year of Our War, thought I didn't like the book that much.

Love in the Time of Cholera


Speaking of which, "A Hundred Years of Solitude"

Germinal
Against All Things Ending
The Wounded Land (although I prefer the swedish title, it uses the author's penchant for obscure words "Det sargade landet")
