    1. Love in the Time of Cholera
    by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

    2.1984 by George Orwell

    3. A Song of Ice and Fire
    by George R.R. Martin

  • The Lord of the Rings by JRRTolkien
    Childhood's End or The City And The Stars by Arthuc C.Clarke
    and maybe At The Mountains Of Madness by H.P.Lovecraft.

    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    It’s so hard to point only three favorite books, but I try…

    1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien
    2. Oceano-Mare by Alessandro Baricco.
    3. Master and Margharita by Michail Bulgakow is really amazing…

    Clive Barker - can't decide which one

  • jack kerouac - on the road
    johann wolfgang goethe - the sorrows of young werther
    victor hugo - notre-dame de paris (don't know the english title, sorry)

    New Moon and Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (I think they count as one xD ).
    Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger - I've never cried this much before.
    I'm torn between the Fingerprints series by Melinda Metz (which is brilliant, btw) and Lord of the Rings, though as for the latter, I had some minor problems with the style of writing. So I guess I'll pick Fingerprints.
