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!

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.

I'm so small

look at your eyes
they're small
but they see
enormous things

My favorite book by Coelho is The Alchemist , as you might have figured 8) But I always enjoy reading his books. I can't do it without a pencil on the other hand. There are so many interesting quotes in all his work.

They are two books:
Harry Potter and the deathly hallows
The Alchamist

those were the kind of books that gives you a pleasant feelings when you remember the time you read them. Well, at least for me .
They are the best for me ( maybe because of the twists sometimes in the plot)
Also, there is something about these two: It made me have like " aha, so that what the author meant , that was smart" kinda thinking. I like it when an author provokes the reader towards anticipating and thinking and having a positive role.

This is a really difficult question, but I'll say The Catcher in the Rye, if only for sentimental value. This is a book that I read first when I was 19, after having hearing some people saying how good it was, how the book changed their lives, etc. I think the book also changed my life, and at the moment of reading it I considered it the best I'd ever read. But hence I've read a lot of other books that arguably I could consider better, maybe some by Stephen King, others by Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz or Brian Keene, even the Harry Potter series. But in this case the heart wins over the brain and I give my kudos to Sailinger.

By the way " Lord of the Flies " by William Golding depicts the life of a group if children after the crash of their plane in an unknown island. The main character is Ralph, also Piggy ,Jack and Simon (i've just get across one of your replies that you ask about this novel ) , bay {-:

I like Andrew Matthews's Books: Happiness Now, Follow Your Heart, Being a Happy Teen, Happiness in a Nutshell. I discover many interesting thing in these books, especially laws of life. They help me to discover my self too. Funny cartoon and story make me smile. Life is more lovely in my eyes whenever i read Andrew's books. Andrew helps me to balance life and work. I usually bring these books when i go on a travel. They are my close friends. Thank Andrew Matthews.
