My favorite book probably would be "Die Vermessung der Welt", written by Daniel Kehlmann (obviously a german book ). Translated it would mean "Measuring the world". It deals with Carl Friedrich Gauss and Alexander von Humboldt and their two different ways of taking the world's measure. Never have I read something that amazing, really.
Oh, and right now I'm reading the Divine Comedy on my iPod. Also really nice, but not easy to read^^
I absolutely loved Die Vermessung der Welt. It's an extremely cool philosophical adventure story. I liked it that both scientists were opposites in character and scientific approach (one barely leaves his home to do research and the other travels all over the world to have crazy adventures) but that in the end they managed to reach the same result.
I guess that I don't really have a favourite book or writer. There's are just too many good ones out there. But during the last couple of years the work of Haruki Murakami made a huge impression on me. To me his novels seem to perfectly capture the essence of being human. His books often are great love stories and epic (but also very weird) quests at the same time. I especially like Kafka on the Shore. It's required reading for everyone .
The dark river of the heart by Dean Koontz
Your young so A Series of Unfortunate Events is great. I personally read through that series about 30 times. I loved the series. Those books were my life
I was an avid reader when i was younger, always like to lose myself in a good book. Obviously i read all the HP books, but also i would reccomend the Anthony Horowitz, Alex Rider series. It's about this teenage spy who actually really depseperatley does not want to be a spy but gets blackmailed into it by M16. But the missions adventures he has to do are always action packed, plently of fighting, use of cool gadgets, and getting out of tight situations.
Once i read the first one i had to read them all.
The goosebumps books were cool, but very cliché.
Do comic books count? That's kinda the only thing I read these days.
The only actual books that come to mind when I think of my favorite books are To Kill A Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men.
I don't like reading. I guess you can say I despise it. But, there are a few pretty decent books I've read. To Kill a Mockingbird is pretty good, so is The Giver. That's pretty much it for fiction really. I'll read some non fiction books if they interest me.
