I would love to tell but because most books I read are in Dutch I think it is of no use doing it.

Well, I suppose that most of us read books in their own languages, so I’m not the exception, but I don’t think it is of no use to recommend my favorites, since they must be translated to other languages too, as capital works of world literature.

For me, the only problem is to chose ONLY 15 best novels, but let me try:

War And Peace – Lev Tolstoy
Evgeny Onegin – Alexandr Pushkin
Resurrection - Lev Tolstoy
Anna Karenina – Lev Tolstoy
Quiet Flows the Don - Mikhail Sholokhov
Torrents of Spring - Ivan Turgenyev
Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Time of Death - Dobrica Ćosić
Tzar Radovan's Treasure - Jovan Dučić
Death and the Dervish - Mehmed MeÅ¡a Selimović
The Bridge on the Drina - Ivo Andrić
The Citadel – A. J. Cronin
By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept - Paulo Coelho
1984 - George Orwell

Wow! What an impossible task! I started to write my list but it is truly impossible for me - especially after reading Slavica and Duda's lists - everything from Tolstoy to Dickens - I added both their lists to mine!!! I would also add all six Jane Austin books to my list.

I agree with Duda about The Little Prince - probably the dearest most cherishished book of mine. A children's book with a deep message for adults. A Turkish translation of the entire book is available here:-
