I love Soviet's literature. But if I have to tell you about English-writing author, I think that I like Yann Martel most. Have you ever read Life of Pi (by Y.M)? That book won Man Booker Prize 2002!

Whole world in one book.


I agree with you. I have read "One Hundred Years of Solitude" more than twice.

I agree with Alekxa and Tankette, the novel of Marquez is wonderful.I have red it 4 times!!!

Another of my favorite books is "the teachings of Don Juan" by Carlos Castaneda.

My favourites books are "The forest woman" by Theresa Tomlinson (I don't remember very good her name) and "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden, very famous by the film, but I prefer the book. And the Harry Potter series ^^

I started reading Memoirs of a Geisha just last night! It's pretty interesting so far. I haven't seen the movie, though. I always prefer to read the book first.

have you ever read something from Jalaludin Rumi?

maybe Mathnewi ,his famuous piece.

Or maybe Divan-i Shems?

let me interest you a little bit:

I'm so small
i can barely be seen
how can this great love be inside of me?
look at your eyes
they're small
but they see
enormous things


do you like it?
