    I bought Henry Kissinger's "Diplomacy" back in 2002... and I finally reached the halfway mark. Kalat kasi ako magbasa. Andami kong binibili.

    Goosebumps.

    Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot and Notes made me a Dostoevsky disciple. His books opened my eyes to the other Russian and Soviet era authors.

    Titles that flashed immediately in my mind when I saw this post: The Gulag Archipelago, One Day In the Life of Ivan Denisovich and Fathers and Sons.

    Re: The Stacks: A Book Thread

    Dostoevsky was an author whose books I read in high school. His stuff was more interesting than the other stuff we had to read.

    More recommended reading:

    - A Theory of Justice and The Law of Peoples, both by John Rawls.
    - [i]The Lexus and the Olive Tree[i] and The World is Flat, both by Thomas Friedman.
    - Letters to A Young Poet and all of the poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke.
    - Any poetry collection by Rumi.
    - The love letters of Martin Heidegger and Hannah Arendt. Yes, love letters.
    - The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola
    - Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. In this book, Hitler practically told the world what he wanted to do. The world ignored him, and even dismissed him as a madman. Then Hitler rose to power.
    - Thus Spake Zarathrusa by Friedrich Nietzsche.
    - The Human Condition by Hannah Arendt.
    - Ethics and Infinity and Otherwise Than Being, both by Emmanuel Levinas.
    - The Place Within, a poetry book by Karol Wojtyla (whom we remember fondly as John Paul II).
    - Silence by Shusako Endo.
    - Night by Elie Wiesel.
    - Two Treatises of Government by John Locke.
    - Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes
    - The Federalist Papers by Hamilton.
    - One Hundred Years of Solitude and Chronicle of a Death Foretold, both by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
    - The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie
    - Trainspotting and Porno, both by Irvine Welsh

    Re: The Stacks: A Book Thread

    it would help if there a litlle note on each book if you could describe it for those who do not know the book (basta wag yung mga obvious na hindi pwede i-reveal....)

    i have the narnia set of c.s lewis

    *can we also include in this thread the magazines as well?*
    Defining John Paul is an exercise in futility...

    Re: The Stacks: A Book Thread

    My favorite C.S. Lewis book is still The Screwtape Letters. It's great if read before or after reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

    Re: The Stacks: A Book Thread

    I hve this old book by NGAIO MARSH called A Man Lay Dead. A whodunnit book that centers on a group of people having a party in a house, then deciding to play an exotic game. Suddenly, 1 of the members came up dead and its up for them to solve the mystery and who among them commit the murder.

    I wont recommend it. ;D

    Tom Clancy
    Michael Crichton
    and John Grisham are always a good read.

    Re: The Stacks: A Book Thread

    Michael Crichton's newest book leaves much to be desired.

    It's about a genetic experiment gone wrong (where have we seen this before?), this time involving monkeys.
