    Let's see....
    - read it (several times)
    - read it (several times)
    - nup
    - read it
    - started it and found it incredibly boring and realised that I didn't NEED to finish it.
    - read it
    - read it (several times, and constantly make jokes about it)
    - never even heard of it!
    - Read it. It's a bit tiresome
    - (Hon mentions - read, read, read, read)
    - Started it. Come on, it lasts forever.


    May I suggest "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula Le Guin?
    And if you want a bit of joy in your life read "Joy in the morning" by PG Wodehouse or "The talisman ring" by Georgette Heyer

    Thank you for pronouncing "Camus" correctly. I just came from a classical music video which talked about MOE-zart and Franz LITZ.

    More like "another top 10 books you need to read if you want to have a solid background on the foundation of classical Western novels." I did quite enjoy Great Gatsby and I loved parts of War and Peace and endured the rest, but neither would be anywhere on a top 10 books to read before you die list. Classics can be great and are important to read if you want to understand how fiction evolved to what it is today, but so much of it is no longer relevant or is too sexist, racist, etc. to be endurable. It's so much nicer to just read modern fiction which poses questions relevant to today, or reflects on the past in ways modern readers can relate to, and best of all, actually features some real diversity.

    Los he leído a todos y son todos geniales pero Frankestein está en un lugar diferente lo mejor, de lo mejor y la Canción de Hielo y Fuego está incompleta y supongo que quedará así, antes creía que Martin moriría pero ahora no me tengo mucha fe de llegar. Es lo malo de los escritores mentirosos!

    I’m surprised Les Miserables wasn’t mentioned. I read the whole unabridged version in high school. It’s such a compelling tale of a man who had nineteen years of his life stolen away just for trying to steal some bread in order to feed his sister and her children. He loses all faith in god, his fellow man, and love yet through several people he comes in contact with after his release from prison he gains a renewed faith in god, what even the smallest acts of kindness can do, how to love again, and how to let his loved one go to peruse her own happiness and future. It’s such a beautiful and incredible story, though I would recommend you pick up an abridged copy as the unabridged contains long unnessacary tangents such as a 15 page long explanation of the construction and history of the Parisian sewers.

    "The Man Who Laughs" ("L'Homme Qui Rit") by Victor Hugo
    Set in England at the turn of the 18th century, this novel tells the tale of Gwynplaine, a boy who is disfigured so his face always appears to be smiling. Not knowing why this was done and abandoned by the men who mutilated him, Gwynplaine survives a snowstorm, rescuing a blind baby girl named Dea along the way, and together, they find shelter with Ursus, a gruff philosopher and peddler of herbal remedies. Gwynplaine grows up to be a clown to provide for his family and he and Dea fall in love. Yet of course, it wouldn't be a Victor Hugo novel without political corruption, intrigue, and the rich making their paradise from the hell of the poor, and all these things are revealed as Gwynplaine discovers his past and the reason for his disfigurement. It's a fantastic read, but then again, I'm a little biased--it's my favorite Hugo novel, so much so I've written a play adaptation.

    You honestly don't need to "read a book" before you die; just get outside, see the sea, breathe the fresh air, feel the Sun, have some fun... Life truly is too short here not experience it outside the comfort of your "peace of mind" and closed space (somewhere alone)... :)

    I absolutely loved Jane Eyre! I first read a revised version when I was ten, and didn't understand it. Thankfully inpicked it up again, this time in the full version, when I was a teen and realized the deeper meaning!

    • SeaLavender1

      Kathryn Lovejoy I read the full version when I was younger, luckily I had an unabridged copy in an old book from my parents that had several stories in one. I also found a version that is done in the Japanese manga as a graphic novel. It was surprisingly faithful.

  • Haley Faragalli

    Typiskt att allt mörkt och ont var "mörkhyade* och att de" goda" va ljusare än solen. Inte undra på att Tolkien är Bevisat rasist. Inte precis som att han smög ang det. Bättre än twilight mormoner
