    Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. The poetry, suspense, subtlety and stark imaginative fantasy has inspired me for years.

    Captain Corelli's Mandolin- the ending made me cry so much!! It was so beautifully bittersweet and Iannis' soliloquy about how love is what is left after everything else is one of the greatest passages I have ever read

    Goodnight Mister Tom. I read it when I was 7 and I still remember telling everyone that would listen about it, and then reading it over and over until I got my hands on the film. Then reading it again.
    great book, great film.

    Omg that short story was hilarious but horrendous😂Apparently, after the events of the story, the woman (I can’t remember her name) tried the same thing with another husband, but her new husband was a forgetful man and forgot to turn on the freezer, so the lamb was really soft and didn’t hurt her husband and then she got arrested😅

    Share the book that impressed you or left a mark on you with us! :smartass:

    In my case, that was Animal Farm by George Orwell. I read it when I was very young (about nine or ten years old) and I hated it so much exactly because it was so sad. To this day, I still cannot forget how I felt when I read it. :moon:
    Wow, you impress me so much! you have read such a sophisticated book in this age? resprect to you! :thumbs::thumb:

    Are you also interest in reading translated books? I would not only recommend you, but also another book readers to read Hesse's 'Siddhartha', be it in English or German. It is so mind-blowing.

    To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
    This book must be pretty good. There are hardly similar threads like this which don't mention this book. I need it.

    You flatter me too much :fan:

    I did and I was so scared because of it and cried. I hated it for years to come. Of course, I am now older and understand it better, but cute little child me was like ':afraid::bawling:'.

    Thank you for the recommendation! :lovehug: Not sure if I will read it now in English or after my German is advanced enough to read it in original

    It’s a very good book. It shows how bad racism was decades ago.

    The Hobbit. I've got amazing memories of reading that wonderful novel in front of a warm fire, while the wins of winter howled outside the walls of my home

    to kill a mockingbird was a great read

    farenheit 451 i managed to finish in about 3 nights. makes me laugh how bradbury wrote it as a criticism of tv but it's become about censorship.

    on a similar note, nineteen eighty-four was pretty excellent, aced my english lit gcse thanks to that book
