15 books

My writer friends on Facebook are playing this game of naming 15 books that will stick with you so here are mine:

In no particular order…(let’s here it for the Russians!)

1. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
2. The Cancer Ward by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
3. The First Circle by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
4. The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
5. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
6. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
7. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
8. The Diaries by Anais Nin
9. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
10. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
11. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
12. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
13. A Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
14. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
15. Sneetches by Dr. Seuss

and honorable mention to Norman Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth

However, it’s probably closer to the truth to list Shakespeare’s plays. Shakespeare was the master.
