    My Name is Asher Lev, by Chaim Potok

    The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant

    Buh... I can't choose a third. Too many to pick from.

  • It is very difficult to pick for me too, because there are sooo many books I really enjoyed...
    So I guess I'll just choose 3 from the big list of my fav books (but the rest are actually just as fav.:P).

    1. Salman Rushdie- The Ground Beneath Her Feet

    2. Emily Bronte- Wuthering Heights

    3. Gabriel Garcia Marquez- One Hundred Years of Solitude

    :D (+ approximately...15 others- at least...)

    "All that is gold does not glitter
    All that is long does not last
    All that is old does not wither
    Not all that is over is past..."
  • 1. Angelas Ashes by Frank McCourt

    2. Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd

    3. Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice

    Only 3 books - it's like a murder to the other ones; a top 10 of personal favorites would be better, but , eh...
    What should I choose? Let's see....


    1. Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov
    1. One Hundred Years Of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez
    2. Il nome della rosa - Umberto Eco
    2. Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky
    3. Tierra virgen. La destrucción del Amazonas - Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa
    3. Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

    Sorry, I cannot choose only 3! :D

    Ah, and, I should not forget about one of the most extraordinary short story: Enigma Variations - Eric-Emmanuel-Schmitt .

    "It's a devious life. And this is a soundtrack to it." ("The Great Cold Distance" // Katatonia)
  • It's so hard... ;-)
    100 años de soledad, by Gabriel García Márquez
    The lord of the Rings, by JRR Tolkien
    Les 3 mousquetaires by Alexandre Dumas

  • To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
    The Diary of a Young Girl - Anne Frank
    The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

  • wellll

    i guess i'd say:

    the Catcher in the Rye - JD Salinger
    Brighton Rock - Graham Greene
    The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway

    but it feels like such a crime to just choose three :(

    qwertyyyyy , it seems that you agree with me in choosing only 3 and you reminded me that The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway should be in my top, as well.
    As far as I can see it, 100 años de soledad (One Hundred Years Of Solitude) by Gabriel García Márquez is somehow a choosing of many of the members; glad to see that.

  • i have One Hundred Years of Solitude in my library at home

    @qwertyyyyy - Hehe; no, you shouldn't read it - it's not a mandatory action, but, it's recommended...So, when the time and the mood let's you, give it a try. Be good!

    George Orwell - Animal Farm
    Mario Puzo - The Godfather

    and...
    Adam Mickiewicz - Mister Thaddeus


    But Bulgakov 's The Master and Margarita is also terrific.

  • I guess that I would choose

    1. Elric of Melnibone: Michael Moorcock

    2. Any Discworld Book: Terry Pratchett

    3. Cabal: Clive Barker (First "horror" book I ever read)
