Yea I’m a bookworm, I love reading. These are some books I like: The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Milan Kundera), My Name is Red (Orhan Pamuk), One Hundred Years of Solitude (Garcia Marquez), Le Città invisibili (Italo Calvino), and so on.
And I’m reading James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, it’s good.
Would you like to share your favourite books with me?

Isaac Asimov-->I Robot (the film has got the name but the argument doesn't have nothing to do) Prelude to Foundation/Forward the Foundation/Foundation/Foundation and Empire/Second Foundation/Foundation's Edge/Foundation and Earth ( Iike the whole saga :D)
Ray Bradbury-->Farenheit 451
Orson Scott Card->Ender's Game

Hi Ulya, we have some interests in common! I think that russian literature is a part of myself, I've read a lot of russians books, russians are masters in sci-fi! and I love russian literature:D besides sci-fi I have an old book of the best stories from Leon Tolstoi in my shelving. It belongs to my mother but I've read it and now is mine :p

 

I love russian artists, they have got a nice concept of art. I will look for that book, Zamyatin, in my college's library, but you must watch this…amazing:

Nice to have you here Ulya and dabbid. I've read two of Salinger's books, The Catcher in the Rye and Franny and Zooey. I like the Catcher in the Rye. Heminway… I've read his Old Man and the Sea and The Green Hills of Africa. He's a great writer but his style doesn't suit my taste. Seems Everyone likes The Little Prince :-D As for Russian literature, it's great. I'm a big fan of Dostoevsky. I read his Crime and Punishment two years ago. It was crazy, I always forgot the time while reading this book. Also I like Sholokhov's And Quiet Flows the Don. And thanks for sharing your favourite books dabbid, but I really knew little about sci-fi books. I've read a small biography of Isaac Asimov before but haven't the chance to read his works yet.

I love Stephen King’s The Shawshank Redemption, it’s wonderful and impressing.
And I haven’t read Dostoevsky’s Idiot, I’ve read his White Night, not so good I think. But why are you astonished? ;-) Also I like Russian writer Bulgakov’s Master And Margaret.

Cheers Ulya! For Dostoevsky and Bulgakov _
Yep I read Pamuk’s novel in Chinese, Agean’s Bacchus. And I haven’t read Orhan Kemal’s works, actually it’s not easy to find Turkish writers’ books in China. But if you think Kemal is even better than Pamuk, I’ll just find out his books to read. Thanks for recommending ;-)
