The most important books in your life ...

Post by Vataes » Mon Jan 25, 2021 2:18 pm

Let everyone try to name a few books that made the greatest impression on him or the ones he thinks are the best and to which he returns most often.

Here are my types (the order of course does not matter)

1. Crime and Punishment (Dostoevsky's masterpiece on the transformation and power of love)
2. Paragraph 22 (dark humor in the second war scenery)
3. Lord of the Rings (The Greatest Fairy Tale)
4. The Green Mile (Perfect but different than usual King)
5. The Thin Red Line (A poignant image of war)
6. Name of Róża (the book that chained me to bed for a few days)
7. The cases of Robinson Crusoe (my childhood book)
8. Tom on the Black Land (1 book that I read myself :))
9. Wretches (miracle)
10. Ferdydurke (every time I visit my mother-in-law I have a sticky mouth :) and we love Słowacki because he was a great poet: P)
Every time you take one path, you must live with the memory of the other: of a life left unchosen.

I will not repeat myself in some of the above-mentioned titles. Personally, I would add Sapkowski's "Sage about the knowledge" and Grzesiuk's "Five Years of Kacet" (A picture of life in 3 concentration camps during World War II from a prisoner's point of view, a wonderful book).

1. "Lost dog" E. Zechenter- Spławińska - I come back very often today with the same pleasure
2. "Znachor" by T. Dołęgi-Mostowicz -
3. "Mary Poppins" P.L. Travers - one of the first books I have read myself, it amuses me to this day
4. "Ten Stranger" by I. Jurgielewiczowa - after he worked at school, he paled a bit, but still remembered warmly
5. "Dr. Dolittle" by H. Lofting - but only the first part
6. "Girl and Boy" by H. Ożogowska - for the holiday atmosphere and humor
7. "Chłopak na wroc" by H. Ożogowska - I am still lying on the floor today, oh this original humor smile.gif
8. "Argument about Basia" by K. Makuszński - for a great "edited" intrigue and "old actor"
9. "Secret Garden" F.H. Burnet - for the unique atmosphere of the old castle, the character of the main character and Marta
10. "Anne of Green Gables" L.M. Montgomery - but only the first part; for Ania's extraordinary character; I like expressive characters, so Diana absolutely did not hit me
