Easy reading and all around nice.
I like easy reads. I looked into it a little more now and it sounds interesting. I think I'll give it a try soon


My 5. I didn't really check if they are available as ebooks.

1. Faust - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Self explanatory. Magnificent language - even the translation captures large parts of its beauty.

2. The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

No-brainer

3. Das Parfum (The Perfume) - Patrick Süskind

A book that's a little different. Beautifully written.

4. A Streetcar Named Desire - Tennessee Williams

A play drenched with emotions. I can only recommend it to the few that haven't read it

5. Den skrattande polisen (The Laughing Policeman) - Maj Sjöwall / Per Wahlöö

A truly great work of crime / detective stories. It's sinister, yet bright and the story is exceedingly clever in my opinion.
