I love the plays, but I can't read the books. They're too mushy to me, and I don't like old English.

It's difficult enough to name some exact favourite authors and their books... You know, all those Russian with their classics, some English, French, German, American.... I love a lot of books... I don't have 1 favourite book... It can change every time I read something new and unknown! The last book I like very VERY much was if I am right Ien Benks "Street of Despair" I may give the wrong title, i read it in Russian, but I liked it... I simply like all his books very much ))

Hi, I'm new to this forum!

Hmm, I'm happy that I can see so many people who like books! Very good!!

I like russian authors, as well! I've just read Crime and Punishment, it was not bad, however I didn't expect such ending..

Do you like horrors? I like Stephen King's books, however I think sometimes he exaggerates..

The best books ever are Birdy by William Wharton and Behind the Glass Wall by Robert Merle.

Hi LittleA. I is so nice to find a twin soul so far. When I read "Crime and Punishment" I had a disappointment. too. But not only in the ending, I felt in the middle of the book that the history was turning bored.

I love Stephen King. The last book of him I read was:
"The Long Walk".

I am going to read the books you recommended.

My prefer books is: "Ensayo sobre la ceguera" by Saramago.

Hi,

Yes, you also felt that feeling in the end? It was too nice, too stereotyped!! Or if he really wanted to finish like this, he shouldn't have it explained in so many words (ok, it wasn't SO many, but it was too much), he should have only referred that maybe they will realize that they love each other.

Oh, it's so nice, that you want to read what I liked! :) It's worth to read them, especially the Birdy.

Is Saramago spanish?
