Actually, I can't tell you exactly which books are easy to read. For the same story, there may be different version. You may go to the library or book shops to look for books that suit your needs. Hope you can find what you need soon. :lol: :lol:

Hey!
I think there are so many good easy books to look at when you are learning English. I would like to know more of what you read first in your natural language...which is?
I am reading a few good books that are fairly simple right now...should I send you one that I am finished with? We could start an exchange your used books club in here... :wink:
I think if we just charged the cost to ship... a shipping price and sent our books to one another when we are done we could change the world :P PEACE & Happy New Year!
(oh I am reading Girl with a Pearl Earring, about Vermeer... and Huna, about Hawaiian healing techniques, and A million Little Pieces... about addiction, right now)
since I am a female you will probably get better answers for you from guys...if they will answer you! :roll: :P
Peace ...tracey

Well, I can only recommend fiction since that's what I like :D

I loved all Dan Brown's novels except for Deception Point. The ones I liked were The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and Digital Fortress.

If you like the classics, you could try Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, or my all-time favorite novel, Alcott's Little Women :D

I also loved a novel called The Lake of Dead Languages, by Carol Goodman. I came accross that novel one day in a store and I thought it must be interesting, I bought and well, I just loved it. If you like mystery, I recommend that one.

I've got plenty of books in English, just let me know your likes and dislikes so I can recommend more :D

In my opinion...

Post by Linpiber » Wed Feb 15, 2006 7:26 pm

I recommend 1984 by George Orwell. I read it last year and I think in this book so far. It was the most depressing book that I've read. Another one is the Classical Dracula by Bram Stocker. This book is almost perfect! When Dracula was publicated for the 1st time it caused such calmour that people thought the story was really true.

More information write to me!

I finally got a copy of FIVE GREAT DIALOGUES and began to read Republic by Plato...wow I am so happy that I found it in a used bookstore it has these five books in one Apology Crito Phaedo Symposium Republic.f I picked it up for five dollars....practically nothing, I wish someone had told me to read Plato when I was younger! It is a really great book, with some really big ideas.
I personally love philosophy....Plato was a great! And followed by so many, with his insightful thinking.

For more easy reading....I suggest books meant for teens, at least when you are (at first) learning. They keep wording sort of simple and the stories are fun to read. For instance the The Narnia Cronicles by C.S. Lewis ...because the English is easier to get if you start with these. Also books by Madeline L'Engle like A Wrinkle in Time. I used to read Nancy Drew Mysteries when I was a child. These are fun too.

If those are too childish for your tastes try books about movies you have seen because that will help you get through them, like Girl With a Pearl Earring (very good book) or watch the movie (if there is one ) when you get a book...because knowing about the movie will help with reading the book.
As for my current reading list:
Yesterday I almost bought Pride and Predjudice but some other books won out...The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, by Dai Sijie....Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian and Wild Animus by Rich Shapiro...
I do book reviews in amazon.com...put this in their search box,
in amazon to have a look at my reviews and guides oh the wishlists are just guides...so please do not send me books LOL!... (I have a whole bunch of them, already, waiting to be read)T.K. Faleofa in the search engine box....for results.
Happy Hunting...and Reading! (hope this helps) :)
I love to read! -Tikay

Five books you would recommend

Post by Cypress » Mon Apr 03, 2006 7:57 am

Hi everyone!
I’m trying to make a list of books I must read. Could you help me? I would appreciate it if you could give me a list of five books that you enjoyed the most. Just a list of five your favorite books. That’s it :D

1.- The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown

2.- Angels and Demons, Dan Brown

3.- Digital Fortress, Dan Brown

4.- The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafón

5.- The Lake of Dead Languages, Carol Goodman

:arrow: I'm not a Dan Brown fan, it's just that his novels were the first ones that came to my mind, especially #1, which I have read twice. By the way, there's one missing (he's got 4), Deception Point, but I didn't like that one.

Of course this list can be expanded, these are not my all-time favorite books... Many of them are from Catalan writers and I am sure you couldn't possibly find them even though some of them have been translated into many languages.

All Harry Potter books. I've read them three times, and I've starting the fourth time; I'm on book five right now.

Edit:
1. All Harry Potter books.
2. Most Sidney Sheldon's books: master of the game, the other side of midnight, tell me your dreams, if tomorrow comes, the bloodline, a stranger in the mirror, the naked face.
3. Most Stephen King's books: cujo, the dark tower, it, on writing: a memoir of the craft, etc.
4. Most Nora Roberts' books.
5. Most Tim O'brien's books or Maya Angelou's.

Shame on me because I haven’t read any book by Dan Brown :oops: . Shame on me again ‘cause I haven’t read any Harry Potter book :oops: . I definitely should read them.

LennyeTran, have you read the Lord of the Rings? Is it similar to Harry Potter books? Did you like it?

Just at the moment these books come into my head: :?
- M. Bulgakov Master and Margarite. One of the best (disputable) books not only in Russian literature but world’s legacy. And just one of my favourite books. Quite entertainment.
- Fowels Collector. Great book. Really maybe the best Fowels’ work. But too awful at the same time.
- G. Orwell Animal Farm. Interesting reading. And not so doom and gloom as all antiutopia.
- GB Show The Heartbreak House. Just my favourite play by Show!
- T. Capote Breakfast at Tiffany’s. …Just read it. I don’t know what to say about the book, don’t know WHAT I should put into words and WHAT words… :) Just nice book with good, pleasant aura. :idea:

I like so many books that mine would be a neverending list! 8) But I agree with LennyeTran, you should read the Harry Potter books, they're wonderful! :D I think I've read them 4 or 5 times, and everytime I enjoy them like I have never read them before!Maybe you can also try Lord Of The Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia by Lewis (who was one of Tolkien's friends), and of course some of Dan Brown's books, especially The Da Vinci Code and Angels and demons. :wink:

You know, I find his writing is too dry for me. Or maybe the movies, I think, are better than the books.

Amy Tan, isn’t she an Asian woman who lives in San Francisco? I remember reading a few of her essays in my English class a couple years ago. I don’t remember the titles, but the essays were about immigrant experiences in America. I found them very interesting because I could make a comparison to my own life and my own experiences as an immigrant.

Yeah, her stories are used to represent Asian-Americans in English classes in the States. She writes about how different it is to be raised in two cultures: Asian and American, how hard it is to identify as which one, etc. One of her famous stories is The Joy Luck Club. I think you've heard of it, right?

you are talking about your favourite books while in the meantime...Mr Collins proposed to Elisabeth and wasn't specially discouraged with her decline. On the contrary he found it her momentary lack of reason. What a story! She refused and her mother wanted to throw her out of house cause she didn't want to pay for her any longer! Well... what an affair! Imagine what talks were being done in local... shrubberies. Elisabeth Bennet refused to Collins and Mr Bingley left for London - for 6 months probably! Only God knows what can happen in the meantime. Sisters didn't tell their mother about whole letter Jane had received. Wise sisters or not? Who can know it.
Read "Pride and Prejudice" - a fact literature:)

So far, all the people I talked to about Dan Brown’s books either liked them a lot or strongly disliked them. I think it might be a good idea to read at least one of them, so I can actually have my own opinion.

:)
Liked them a lot or strongly disliked… Hmmm… (Maybe people who is not so exacting to literature – like it, those who prefer good, real literature dislike it…) :lol:
For me indeed it’s not so interesting to discuss it. Just to make clear myself…
I’m not really against this book! Of course you may read it of you have a free evening. I spent one – and not so bad…
I’m just talking that we should clearly understand what kind of literature it is. And if there wouldn’t spend so big money on promotion of the book and you wouldn’t see it on every corner I just simple forget about the book on the next day! Like every other book of the kind, any other street detective…
(By the way I must confess I received a little pleasure reading the book - if we still consider it as literature – there’re no characters, no normal idea, and language is very poor. From this point of view it’s really uninteresting.)
Resemble average middling Hollywood action, just running, firing and explosions and nothing more. But it’s better to watch smth like this than read I think.


Just only hope the movie will be a little bit better. (anyway as there will be Jan Reno)

Well. Miss Prosecutor! :wink: The language is not so poor as you want it to be, english version is just amazing, i must say russian translation is poor! that's a big difference!

And about good-bad litarature... every one considers it from his own point of view... Sure there is no need to talk about Dostoevski, wether he is talented or not... it goes without saying!
talking about modern literature (excluding beloved russian detectives of course...) not every new releasing books is worth paying attention on it, but Dan Brown is among those writers that i would like to read (if i have a spare evening :wink: ). I don't care if he has stolen the plot! the book i read by him i liked... and nothing more...

by the way... here is another one crazy-on-Jan-Reno... :!: :roll: :wink:

Resemble average middling Hollywood action, just running, firing and explosions and nothing more. But it’s better to watch smth like this than read I think.


Just only hope the movie will be a little bit better. (anyway as there will be Jan Reno)
Well. Miss Prosecutor! :wink: The language is not so poor...

Well. Miss Prosecutor! :wink: The language is not so poor as you want it to be, english version is just amazing, i must say russian translation is poor! that's a big difference!

And about good-bad litarature... every one considers it from his own point of view... Sure there is no need to talk about Dostoevski, wether he is talented or not... it goes without saying!
talking about modern literature (excluding beloved russian detectives of course...) not every new releasing books is worth paying attention on it, but Dan Brown is among those writers that i would like to read (if i have a spare evening :wink: ). I don't care if he has stolen the plot! the book i read by him i liked... and nothing more...

by the way... here is another one crazy-on-Jan-Reno... :!: :roll: :wink:
Miss Prosecutor..! :idea: Uuummm… I like it! (May I use it now as my second name??? Please…) :?:

Please don’t involve me in all this… !!! :shock: (But I’ve had some smiles reading Tora’s note)
Just… I know about translation, but still… I prefer bigger masters.
And I’m not talking about bad-good books if you still think so! And modern literature too…
Just usually real literature (like one of kinds of art) exists and just literature for the masses, popular literature. This poplit may be good and qualitative too but it always be a books for an evening and nothing more. One, two nice evenings – if book is a little bit qualitative and talented – but then in a week you simply forget this book. That’s all!

P.S. By the way Tora, as you may understand me, Don’t you think that maybe Akunin’s series about Fandorin as the same kind of literature is more artistic and better?

I’m not really crazy-on-Jan-Reno (interesting term)… :shock:
But he is smth special it’s true and a Frenchman too… :wink:

Thank you.
Miss Prosecutor.

i decided not to use quote as it would be toooo long to read!
sure you may! I have no lisence yet.

I read akunin and i don't like it pretty much! just one evening! i wonder how the authors write in a manner when you are not fascinated but still can't help reading... though you see it is not big writter... the same goes to akunin!
Please, Ksju, don't make me be involved in any kind of misconception between! I see that i'm not speaking properly about my tastes but keep judging others... forgive me if i said something wrong or ... i don't know...

The fact is Jan Reno is spanish! amazing! it doubles my admiration!!! 8)

Indeed, I absolutely didn’t try to involve smb in smth! :? (And one of the reasons is my language is not good enough …) And of course I have no any offences on you or smb else. I as you just try to make clear my thoughts on a topic…

Jan Reno… Spanish… (no matter indeed… still… veryveryvery cute) :roll:
But I read that he was born in Morocco (not Spain and not France). But it’s really no matter!
And you call me “another one crazy-on-Jan-Reno”… You see I’m too ill-informed to be another… :wink:

And, yes, as for Akunin, I’m not his fan. Just I think his works are more good-made from artistic positions.

I liked the beginning, but when it came to the end I was really disappointed. To me he was trying to put everything in for a rush end or a cheesy, Hollywood end.

5 books

Post by andrea » Sun May 28, 2006 8:03 pm

Hi everybody

re-entered and visited the club after a bit long while, and I found this thread which I would like to reply to.

As I write I try to list in my mind the five books I would recommend, or better, I was impressed through.

1 - The Scarlet Letter (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
2 - La Nausée (Jean Paul Sartre)
3 - The Red Badge of Courage (Stephen Crane)
4 - Animal Farm (George Orwell)
5 - America, Der Prozess, Das Schloss (Franz Kafka) *

* sorry but I can't separate any part of Kafkas trilogy, and it fascinated me too much.. I had to list the whole of it.. :?

A big ciao

Andrea :)

Recommended books

Post by Inkbell » Mon Aug 21, 2006 12:11 pm

Oh dear!

My list of books to recommend is endless like The Ednless Story by Michael Ende :D , but as my favourites are fantasy books, here are some of my gratest loves:

1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
2. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
3. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
4. Inkheart by the german author Cornelia Funke, an enchanting triology for all those who love books, the next is Inkspell and the third one is yet to be published
5. Thoe's journey by Catherine Clement, don't know, if the title is written correctly, because I've read it only in German and Polish. It's a bokk about all the main religion's of the world

Okay, that's all for today :wink:

His books are boring. They're well-written, but they're boring. You can try Cujo from the list. However, don't expect to be impressed by his work. It won't happen until the end of any of his books.

Hi, laetetia.
I'm very happy I've got a reply from you. As soon as I recived your reply, I searched What conutry is Costa Rica. It's very different from Japan.
I've also read some misteries by Agatha Cristie in Japanese but not in other languages.
In other hand, I'm interested in Spanish and not regulatory I'm studying Spanish by watching on TV and listening music.
If you know, I want to read some nursery books in Spanish.

Well, sorry for answer until now. I had big problems with my computer.
But maybe you can try to read some little tales for kids. There you can learn vocabulary and at the same time you don't be very confuse. Or that I think so.
For me Japan is a gratefuly country, I am really in love of your country, by your history and traditions, every is wonderful there!

Hi, laetia.
I've afraid my reply had been hard to understand or
there had been some inapropriate things in my reply.

By the way I'm studying Espanol somtimes, only two words I've learned are vamos and ora... and most difficult in studying Espanol is the completely change in one word, for example "yo soy..." and "tu eles..."

Sorry for I wrote long mail unconcered with this forum.
I'm searching some book written espanol in the nearest book store.

I'm going to home. Buenos noches

Can I fix some mistakes?
You most to write: "hora" not "ora", "tu eres" not "tu eles" and finally "Buenas noches" not "buenos noches"
However, it is ok. I know for the foreign people the Spanish (Español) are very difficult, because we have a lot of words, verbs, adjectives whit the same meaning, and different pronunciation or things like that...
But if you like I can help you, and you can help to me whit my Japanese :)

Hi, laetetia.
Thank you for correcting my spelling.
I didn't check the spell and I remembered "h" was not pronunced in Espanol when you corrected.

In this summer I'm going to visit to Brazil and the language in Brazil is Portoghese. My friend, who teach Espanol in university in Japan, tell me Espanol and Portoghese are very similar and if they can talk Espanol, they can communicate easily.
Is it true?

By the way, I want to know that Japanese commic or anime are popoular in your country like Europe or America. If you like it, I could give you some information of them.
