I've got his four novels, and I loved them all, except Deception Point.

Oh, I love that book. I’ve read it both in Russian and in English. It is way easier to read it in English than in Russian. The reason is that Dostoevsky often used such long sentence structures, but when translated, most of those long sentences were broken into two or three short ones.
I think the book is great. The characters are so vivid. And so much suffering. I believe it’s one of those books that truly enrich one’s soul.

I have just finished a novel named " Nothing last forever" of Sidney Seldom - a very famous writer. It is so interesting that everybody should read. Besides, It is easy to read too, not uses too much complicated English. :roll:

I have finished The memoirs of a geisha. I learned some things from the book which helped me with my report about Japan , its culture and customs. Nice read, you have to be open minded and not judgemental of the culture of other countries. Its like actually going there and seeing real geisha. :)

Some poets said that it's the first poem in the history.
I studied a part of it at school and I found it quite interesting, but I've never found enough free time to read it!
The last book I've read is Harry Potter 3...I had already read it almost 10 times, but I love it so much that I never get bored by it although I know the plot by heart :? :roll:

I just finished reading Don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. What a long and complex book :!: :!: :!: The first part was pretty much straight forward, but the second one was perplex and confusing. But that is what makes this book so great. Now I really want to watch the movie.
So if someone has nothing to do and feels like reading twelve hundred pages of satire on knighthood, go for it :)

I should read Moby Dick too since it's a classic of American literature and I've studied its characteristics and main topics :oops: OMG there are so many books I should read.

Well I just finished Teacher Man by Frank McCourt, I had been looking for this book for months, and finally found it in San Francisco.

Now I'm reading a book I bought in London entitled This book will save your life. Not very good but it will be useful for informal vocabulary.

This is one of my favorite by Agatha Christie. It is also known as And Then There Were None or Ten Little Indians (I guess the original name wouldn´t be ethically correct now). I love Agatha Christie a lot. Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot are awesome.

Thank you for answer me...I did not know the English title, thank you for the new information...Like my mother say's "all the days I can learn something new"
For me the best book which never read is "Maria" by Jorge Isaacs, is a romantic novel, beautiful book...

When laetetia said that she was reading a book by Agatha Christie, I had a great temptation to read something by this author myself. So on my last visit to the closest public library, I grabbed Miss Marple Complete Short Stories. Enjoyed the book a lot.
All the murders were so awful and cold-blooded (and I usually don’t like reading about killings and violence), but I wasn’t so much horrified by the murders themselves as I was impressed by the wittiness of Miss Marple solving them.

Still with Melville
40 chapters are covered, not easy-going and I lack spare time.
And I must say it is a very nice sample - every 10 pages I write out a quotation - full of wisdom.
For everyone who's hesitating wether to read or not (and for those who studied it from the vocabulary point of view :wink: ) I advise to pick it up!

And the book I was reading in subway and university - Le Carre - Smiley's people - a very good author writing about spies...

I've just read "The White Fang" by Jack London, in Vietnamese translation. It was about the wolf'physical and mental development as well as his desire for living. Jack London's style of writing is flexible, imaginative and descriptive. His works are really touching, significant and have humanitarian value.
