Is there a book you would recommend others to read? If so which and why?

I would recommend Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions among others. An educational and satiric book well over 130 years old, which still has a lot of relevance in its satire and still explains the concept of dimensions phenomennally in my opinion.

    • I have seen the film adaptation but not read the book. I believe it to be absolutely a good book. Thanks for bringing it up.

    • I will never see the film. The book is too powerful to me.

  • I would say Maus by Art Spiegelman. Its a graphic novel about the holocaust. It has interesting accounts and the animals that represent each people in it make you think. For example, the dogs are Americans, the Germans are cats and the Jewish are mice, just to name a few!

  • 'Seveneves' by Neal Stephenson, it's an amazing science fiction novel, presently too caught up with other things but I'm looking forward to read it too some day!

    • Looks interesting. I feel a bit sad for you being so caught up in things - at least if it means there is no time for reading at all - it is so amazing to read, I think that I always strive to make sure there is time available for just a couple of pages if nothing more :). Hope you will enjoy it when you read it. Thanks for sharing.

  • The Legend series by Marie Lu because it made me cry and it has a lot of passionate moments and it is an investigative novel while also being a dystopian novel.

    • A very good play agreed. Personally I like Macbeth over Hamlet but they and others of his writings as well are still excellent reading.

    • There's not a *bad* Shakespeare play to read. Just about every one can find one they fancy.

  • If you're already in a relationship or wish to be one, or want to save the one you're in, read The Married Man Sex Life Primer by Athol Kay
    It could change your life.

    • Very interesting reviews - can even see patterns of what is stated in those alone present in several posts here. Thanks for the tip.

  • My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. I recommend anyone who hasn’t read it, to definitely read it as it’s a very unique book on a unique perspective of the world. I was surprised by how this book affected me, by it’s plot mainly.

    • Agreed - that is also a brilliant book. As is others of his works. If you haven't read them I can highly recommend those too. Thanks for sharing.

  • Arsen Lupen- the Hollow Needle.
    It's best to read the first two books first. But this one, on its own, is very good.
    Why: It's about a gentleman thief.( Enough said ) His main rule is NO KILLING.

    It directs man or woman the right way to lead their soul and eternal home towards Heaven. It tells how we can avoid making Hell our eternal home.

    • Many fantasy suggestions so far and I agree the Chronicles of Narnia is absolutely worth reading. Let's hope it inspires some to pick them up. Thanks a lot.

    • Yeah, fantasy and sci are not my preferred genre, but I second a vote for Narnia.

    • Sounds interesting - and with several relevant pointers even for today. I love famtasy and this one is even of an older date (70ies). Is it not amazing when books make such an impact on you. I think so. Thanks for the suggestion.

    • Np! I bought for a dollar at a campus book sale, I love those little treasures

    • Me too. Just a matter of being a bit patient going to such kinds of sale and then you will discover so many cool things at the cost of almost nothing.
