I discovered Thursday 13 recently. I love lists, so compiling one every week will be a breeze for me – I hope. Since I want to keep this blog book related, however far fetched at times maybe, my first list is going to be 13 favourite books of mine in no particular order.
A suitable boy by Vikram Seth
Confessions of Felix Krull, Confidence Man by Thomas Mann
Perfume by Patrick Süskind
Beneath the wheel by Hermann Hesse
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
A town like Alice by Nevil Shute
The mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Tender is the night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Letters back to ancient China by Herbert Rosendorfer
Basically all stories by Ephraim Kishon. I found this book I’m linking to on amazon.com, but he wrote loads of books. One reviewer said that the original language of his books is German, which is not true. The original language is Hebrew and I suppose a lot of the quality depends on the translator.
