Recientemente me encontré con un par de listas de lecturas (les voy a compartir al final) y se dio cuenta de que me encanta leer libros recomendaciones. No puedo tener suficiente de ellos.

Así que decidí compilar mi propio (algo ecléctico) la lista de novelas me parecen increíbles y es esencial para todas las bibliotecas. Espero que os guste.

Quisiera hacer algunas notas antes de buceo pulg En primer lugar,ésta no es una lista completa de los clásicos. No es una lista completa de nada. Es un hombre de la lista de lectura - un escritor,un libro amante,un amante y un padre,pero un hombre,no obstante. Hay unamuchograndes libros de la izquierda fuera de la lista.

Otra nota: en realidad hay muchos más libros que aquí se enumeran 50 - un número de los que figuran son en realidad la serie de libros,en un par de series de casos que incluyen 20 o más libros. Recomiendo también debe de leer libros de un autor,si me ama,por lo que el total será superior a 100.

Hay clásicos aquí,pero son baratos y popular thriller de ficción e incluso algunos "niños" los libros. Lo único que sé es que yoqueridoestos libros - no,yoaúnel amor - y espero que también.

Si usted puede llenar su biblioteca con 50 libros,podría hacer mucho peor que elegir esos 50. Entonces,¿qué es esta lista? Una lista de grandes lecturas.

No en cualquier orden,pero sólo en el orden en que vino a mí:

  1. Rey Lear ,by Shakespeare. This list of novels starts with a couple of non-novels,so you might say it’s cheating. But it’s Shakespeare! And I’m not going to do a list of amazing plays,so I’m including Shakespeare here. Rey Lear is my favorite — it was so ahead of its time that it’s amazing.
  2. Aldea ,by Shakespeare. If Lear is my favorite,Aldea just barely lost that title. Some of Shakespeare’s most amazing writing is in this play. I also like Othello y Macbeth ,Entre otros.
  3. El gran Gatsby ,by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Just an absolutely poetic writer. There’s a mucho of powerybeauty in this short book.
  4. ¿Es la oferta nocturna ,Por F. Scott Fitzgerald. Gatsby es más conocida,pero la oferta es tan bellamente escrito que tiene que leer si no lo han hecho. Es poesía en prosa.
  5. Un Retrato del artista como un joven ,De James Joyce. Una excelente introducción a este inigualable de escritores modernos,retrato es notable para el desarrollo de su lengua como el narrador de la habilidad con el idioma mejora.
  6. Ulises ,by James Joyce. An absolute masterpiece. Joyce puts the entire scale of human dramayEnglish literature within the span of 24 hours,pmuchoted within one square mile,told through the lives of ordinary people. Also see Joyce’s outstanding book of short stories, Dublineses .
  7. Cuna de gato ,by Kurt Vonnegut. I just can’t get enough of Vonnegut,yI was devastated that he died last year. Until then,he held the title of my absolute favorite living writer. And Cuna de gato is my favorite of all his books. I think Vonnegut is in my granfalloon.
  8. Matadero-Cinco ,by Kurt Vonnegut. Anything by Vonnegut is excellent reading,but this is one of his best,yis considered a classic. A more humorousyraging commentary against war has rarely been written. Also see Bluebeard , Payasadas , Bienvenido a la Casa del mono , Desayuno de los Campeones ,among others,if you like the two listed here.
  9. Neuromancer ,by William Gibson. Perhaps my favorite sci-fi writer of all time,Gibson is gritty,dreamy,yultra-cool all at the same time. Neuromancer was his first,yis the start of the Span trilogy. Oh,btw,Gibson,if you happen by the remotest chance to read this blog,drop me a line! I’m a ridiculously huge fan.
  10. Todas las Partes de la Mañana ,by William Gibson. This tale of the near future features a Zen-like assassin,among other cool characters,who is one of my favorites in Gibson lore. ATP is the third in the Bridge trilogy.
  11. Reconocimiento de patrones ,by William Gibson. With this book,Gibson starts a new series,set in the present day. In fact,it’s so much like his futuristic sci-fi that it’s eerie. Gibson has a unique way of looking at our world. I named my youngest daughter (Noelle Cayce,now 2 years old) after the main character of this book,Cayce Pollard,who is in turn a tribute to Edgar Cayce.
  12. Hombre lento ,by J.M. Coetzee. One of the greatest living writers of the English language,you could pick up any of his titles (Disgrace would be my other recommendation)yget an excellent book. Hombre lento plays with the boundaries of fiction.
  13. The Big Sleep ,by Raymond Chandler. The best of the detective novelists,Chandler took the genre to new heights that generations of writers have tried to reach. He’s the best,yhis writing is just as relevant today as it was when it was written.
  14. Madre de Brooklyn ,by Jonathan Lethem. If you like Chandlerysimilar tough detective novels,you’ll love Lethem’s brilliant take on the genre. An excellent story featuring a protagonist with Tourette Syndrome,a killer giantya Zen crime syndicate.
  15. Gun,with Occasional Music ,by Jonathan Lethem. Another excellent detective novel,this one combines the genre with sci-fi. Features talking kangaroos working for the mobyother cool stuff.
  16. Nunca Let Me Go ,by Kazuo Ishiguro. It’s hard to describe Ishiguro’s writing,except that he really plays with whether the narrator of a story is objective or not. He plays with traditional pmucho devicesyuses the reader’s curiosity of the unfolding story drive the book forward. Nunca Let Me Go might technically be sci-fi,as it seems to be set in the future,but really there’s not much sci-fi about it.
  17. Cuando éramos huérfanos ,by Kazuo Ishiguro. Ostensibly a detective novel,it leaves you wondering about a mucho of things,including what others really think of the narrator.
  18. Kafka en la orilla ,by Haruki Murakami. This guy is such an imaginative writer. Very different from most of the fiction you’ll read,anything can happen in a Murakami book.
  19. Bel Canto ,by Ann Patchett. One of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read,a must-read if you haven’t yet. Hostagesyhostage takers trapped by seige,ysome surprising things unfold.
  20. Correr ,by Ann Patchett. I just love her writing. This is a moving story full of magic. Also see Patchett’s excellent El Mago del Asistente
  21. El Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy serie ,by Douglas Adams. The best comedy books ever,you’ll laugh out loud at every book. Adams is simply brilliant.
  22. La serie Mundodisco,by Terry Pratchett. Starts with El Color de la Magia ,but there are well over 20 in the series now. You can just jump inyread any of them,ythey’re all pretty much incredible. Second-funniest writer,after Adams.
  23. El Stand ,by Stephen King. Anything by Stephen King will be a good read,but El Stand is my favoriteyif you’re going to just read one book by him,read this one. A master storyteller.
  24. Serie de Harry Potter ,by J.K. Rowling. A classic series,from book one. Sure,it’s supposedly a kid’s series,but so is LOTR (next entry,below)yhost of other wonderful works. Harry Potter made reading come alive for my children,yI actually cried numerous times while reading these books with them.
  25. El Hobbit y el Señor de los Anillos serie ,by J.R.R. Tolkein. Absolute classics. El Hobbit by itself is a great little book,but the LOTR series adds epic drama to the world of the Hobbits.
  26. Alta fidelidad ,by Nick Hornby. Made into an excellent movie by John Cusack (who I also love),Alta fidelidad is as much about music as it is about relationships. Just a cool book.
  27. Alrededor de un muchacho ,by Nick Hornby. Better than the movie,which was pretty decent. The main characters — a do-nothing rich shallow bachelorya son of a depressedysuicidal mom — are transformed by each other. Also see Hornby’s excellent Cómo ser buenos .
  28. Agua para elefantes ,by Sara Gruen. I didn’t think I’d like this book,as it’s a historical book about circuses. But it’s a compelling story,ythe well-researched facts really bring the storyycharacters alive.
  29. La insoportable levedad del ser ,by Milan Kundera. A classic,ya great read. Set in Czechoslovakia in the late 60s,it explores the insignificance of our actionsyexistence,in beautiful language.
  30. Ana Karenina ,by Leo Tolstoy. One of the greatest novels of all time,Anna is a tragic heroine brought down by her desire to liveybe querido,while Levin is a wonderful character looking for a satisfactory answer to the only important question to Tolstoy: that of death. Incredibly interwoven stories presided over by a roving omniscient narrator.
  31. CrimeyPunishment ,y Los Hermanos Karamazov ,by Dostoyevsky. These two classics are fascinating for their explorations of the human psyche under extreme conditions. An existentialist before his time,Dostoyevsky is a powerful writer.
  32. El Broker ,by John Grisham. I simply devour Grisham stories. He’s such a good storyteller that you can’t put down his books. I’ve readyenjoyed all of his books but the Broker is one of my favorites. Also see The Correraway Jury y El Testamento .
  33. El Catcher en el Centeno ,by J.D. Salinger. A classic from when I was an adolescent,Catcher withstands multiple readings over the years. The main character is just someone you root for,who you want to be friends with. Also see Salinger’s FrannyyZooey .
  34. Azteca ,by Gary Jennings. Amazing historical fiction,so detailedythoroughly researchedyfascinating. You won’t believe this book,or any of its sequels. Also see his wonderful story of Marco Polo — so rich in detail: Journeyer
  35. Creación ,by Gore Vidal. Another master of historical fiction,Vidal follows a fictional Persion diplomat who meets major philosophers of the time,from Socrates to ZoroasteryBuddhayLao TsuyConfucius. Also see Lincoln ,another example of Vidal’s best historical fiction,ythe best insight into Lincoln you’ll ever find.
  36. To Kill a Mockingbird ,by Harper Lee. Another one I enjoyed as an adolescent,it’s a gripping story set in a small southern town with memorable characters. You’ve probably read it already — but it’s worth another visit.
  37. Shibumi ,by Trevanian. Not exactly a classic,but a hidden treasure of the spy genre. Compelling story with a main character you’ll wish you could be,especially if you’re a guy.
  38. Hablar de mí Bastante Un Día ,by David Sedaris. Absolutely hilariousybrilliant social commentary in the guise of a memoir. OK,this isn’t exactly a novel,but the stories are so exaggerated as to be almost fictional,so I included it. Also read his others,including Desnudo y Dress Your Family in CorduroyyDenim .
  39. Las Uvas de la Ira ,by John Steinbeck. A monumental classic by a master,explores the plight of the poor who are exploited by modern corporations in an epic tale of struggling sharecroppers.
  40. Deep Blue buena por ,by John D. MacDonald. The first of the incredible Travis McGee series,I actually highly recommend all of them. McGee is a hard-nosed “salvage expert” — actually a private eye who lives on a boat (called The Busted Flush)yis one of the most memorable detective characters since Sherlock Holmes.
  41. Watership Abajo ,by Richard Adams. Yet another book I read repeatedly as a teen-ager. I don’t know why I love this story about rabbits so much,but you just find yourself moved by the charactersyrooted in the story (so to speak) as they struggle to overcome tyranny.
  42. Lolita ,by Vladamir Nobokov. This controversial book will test your moral boundaries,yat the same time push the boundaries of the language. Unmatchable in many ways.
  43. A veces una gran noción ,by Ken Kesey. He’s better known for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,but for some reason I querido this book more,yI think it’s the better book. It’s a masterpiece,really,with intricately interwoven narratives (which can be a bit confusing) telling the story of a hard-nosed logging family in Oregon. A must read.
  44. Vida de Pi ,by Yann Martel. A charming story of an Indian boy lost in the middle of the ocean with a tiger. A great read.
  45. El curioso incidente del perro durante la noche ,by Mark Haddon. A touching story about a 15-year-old autistic boy who is very intelligent,who uses his dedicated detective skills to solve more mysteries than he set out to solve.
  46. Las correcciones ,by Jonathan Franzen. At first,I didn’t like this book much,as the author seems to dislikeymake fun of the main characters. But the deeper you go into the novel,the more you begin to understandysympathize with the characters. And beyond an intricately woven tale,it’s also an interesting critique of modern consumerism society.
  47. El Tiempo del Viajero Esposa ,by Audrey Niffenegger. A beautiful love story,told with a unique twist of time travel.
  48. Cold Mountain ,by Charles Frazier. I couldn’t put this book down. The movie disappointed,but you’ll fall in love with these characters.
  49. Noble House ,by James Clavell. Incredibly intriguing historical fiction,in this case set in Hong Kong. Extremely compelling stories. Clavell has a whole series of can’t-put-down books set in Asia,including Tai-Pan y Shogun ,among others
  50. Don Quijote ,by Cervantes. Another of the greatest novels of all time,the tales of Quixoteythe amazing Sancho Panza will delight you with their humorywit. Much of Western literature is indebted to this book,yCervantes is the only writer who comes close to standing with Shakespeare.
