City of Thieves!
Recently, FF fan Rob Hatton has been running a series of polls to determine which Fighting Fantasy gamebook people think is the best. After a number of rounds, 60+ solo adventures were whittled down to just two - Ian Livingstone's City of Thieves, and Ian Livingstone's Deathtrap Dungeon.
Both books were originally illustrated by Iain McCaig, and after a titanic struggle, which looked to go either way for much of the match, City of Thieves ended up taking a small lead over Deathtrap Dungeon, and managed to hold its rival at bay long enough to take the top spot. The final score was 193 votes to 180.

We're not talking about the ones you quite like, we're talking about those you are absolutely besotted with. The adventures that you play over and over again, despite knowing every encounter inside out. The books you could never imagine parting with. The titles that you own multiple copies of, and will buy anything that is released that is even remotely connected to them.
Is one of these classic adventures your soulmate?
And while we're on the subject of things that you love, which is your favourite cover painting? Who is your favourite artist? Who is your favourite author?
