Due to the nature of my work, I have to read manuals in english.
As for novels, the hardest novel I read was Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. I found it hard to read because of the numerous uses of slang from the 19th century! I also read ALL Sherlock Holmes short stories and novels. I also read quite a few more contemporary novels (in fact I read exclusively in English),

Books that I would recommend if you haven't read them before :
1. 1Q84 (Haruki Murakami's masterpiece IMHO).
2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Series (Absolutely a thrilling page turner).
3. The. Hunger Games (Not your average young adult novels).
4. The Alchemist (Simply enchanting)

I am a bookworm, dude. Too much to count... But my favorites are:

1. The Hunger Games Trilogy (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay)
2. A Thousand Splendid Suns
3. To Kill a Mockingbird

I am into classic now.. Books by Jules Vernes (the father of science fiction!) are simply awesome. Been trying to read Shakespears's but Romeo and Juliet just turn me off. I don't get anything romantic about it. Maybe i'm just terrible at judging such book or it's not my cup of tea.

So, i'm reading Crime and Punishment. Anybody have any sugestion about classic books, please dont hesitate to recommend it.

ive read:
5. The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold(In her novel The Lovely Bones, author Alice Sebold takes a shocking and upsetting theme - the rape and murder of a child, and from this dark background )
4. The Little Prince - Antoine De Saint-Exupery(I saw a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest, its an amazing story)
3. The Remains of the Day - Kazuo Ishiguro(The Remains of the Day is a profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world postwar England.)
2. A Fine Balance - Rohinton Mistry(About the Book With a compassionate realism and narrative sweep that recalls masters from Balzac to Dickens, this novel captures all the balance)
1. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee ( now im trying to read D)

The Five Greatest Warriors by Matthew Reilly

According to 5000 years old inscription that was found in the Sphinx's Temple, Giza, Egypt and known as The Rhyme of The Warriors
here are some hints if you'd like to find out who the five greatest are :

- THE FIRST shall be the noblest, scholar and soldier both
- THE SECOND a natural leader of men, none shall achieve greater fame than he
- THE THIRD shall be the greatest warlord known to history
- THE FOURTH is the great obsessor, seeking only glory, but glory is a lie
- THE FIFTH shall face the greatest test and decide if all shall live or die

for classic literature; i do conan doyle's sherlock holmes, even though i finished it years ago, i still managed to re-read them at least once in a month.

catcher in the rye by JD Salinger is also one of the books that shaped my point of view (but no, i'm not running away from school and being radical) but all Salinger's work were all great.

right now i'm flicking towards 1Q84. heard that it's a good book but haven't got the good time to read them.

I'm reading"Bless Me, Ultima" by Rudolfo Anaya. A classic one tells about a young boy from New Mexico and his mentor, an old woman named Ultima. However, myths are what fascinated me mostly especially the owl, which represented Ultima's soul. When the owl killed, Ultima will die. Unfortunately, this book is very rare in Indonesia.. capedes
