Well I'll suggest this geeky short story anyways, though you'd love it if you're a total geek! :) [link]

If you're gonna read 1984, you should read Brave New World too ;)

Yo! I'd say go for 'The Alchemist', 'The GodFather', 'The Kite Runner', 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' and 'Eleven Minutes' if you want a serious and a good read! ^_^

Warna go for the regular Harry Potter, Twilight Saga, Goosebumps waghaira ... But they're too childish.

As far as non-fiction goes, and for supercharged brain fuel: Anything by Mortimer J. Adler, but especially "How to Think About God: A Guide for the 20th-Century Pagan"; "Six Great Ideas"; or "The Idea of Freedom: A Dialectical Examination of the Controversies about Freedom".

For fiction, the classics are still good: "Finnegan's Wake" by James Joyce; "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger; "Breakfast of Champions" or "Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut (plus his collection of short stories in "Welcome to the Monkey House" are really good); and "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift (which was written as a satire and not as a children's book).

Just for fun (sci fi): "His Dark Materials" by Philip Pullman; "The War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells; "Bitter Seeds" by Ian Tregillis (2010); "The Traveler" by John Twelve Hawks; and, "The Space Trilogy" by C.S. Lewis.

Should keep you busy for a while! :-)

You should read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", The book that inspired the movie Blade Runner. Its actually much better than the movie and damn trippy to boot. If youre into the whole noir detective sci-fi gig.

Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy has a huge impact on me but its not for everyone, its silly sarcastic humor.
you should definitely check all Dan Brown books
also The Zahir and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I want to try the Tomorrow series by Australian writer John Marsden next

I've finished reading The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid yesterday.

I liked it a lot. It's well written, the story is intriguing (as in: not every question is explicitly answered) and makes you think, and riddled with symbolism, which I think is always a plus.

I didn't read it myself, but I heard only good reviews. Something to do with post-apocalyptic russia, survivors, monster and that kind of stuff.

Harry Potter, it's underground... guess you would not find the book. :lmao:
Percy Jackson is kinda nice, but super childish. Have you read The Lord of the Rings?

I wish I had that kind of time. Although if a book i'm reading is really good I don't do anything else until i finish it :P
Anyways, the last thing I read was the "Inglourious Basterds" screenplay. And I loved it :D I finished it in 2 days. Christmas eve and christmas day =P

My favourite novel is 1984 by George Orwell, a "social science fiction" novel. Another one that I really enjoyed a lot reading it was "Dracula", the original one of Bram Stroker. These are my suggestions ;)
