I found Dostoyevsky' Brothers Karamazov to be a gripping account of human psychology with themes of philosophy and religion.


It's not an easy read it took me summer of 2014 and I want to re-read it because I was young then; I feel a lot of the ideas explored in the novel would have sailed over my head.

Bhagavad Gita or Mahabharata, it is the great war epic and longest poem ever written, 1.8 million words in total (to put into perspective, 10 times the Iliad and Odyssey combined)

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is one of my favourites, I'd recommend it if you're fond of psychothrillers
the 1Q84 trilogy by Murakami Haruki was also a pretty good read

“When Breath becomes air” by Paul Kalanthi
hey, I'm reading that book rn! I always love reading doctor memoirs bc I'd interested in the medical field myself. It's really such a shame he died so young, he had so much going for him, and so much passion for what he did

In terms of sophistical writings:

The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Night train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier

In terms of having the most fun during reading:

In eighty days around the world by Jules Verne

Stoner by John WIlliams is also a recommendable mention! although I don't know how I can assign this.
