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
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.
