I like the Sharpe series from Bernard Cornwell. He does a great job of portraying a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars who - after saving the life of Arthur Wellesley, is promoted to an officer - something that was very uncommon during this time period. These are my favourite books, for sure.

 

I also fancy other books from Bernard, such as some that take place during the time of the Saxons, as well as one that was even about the battle of agincourt. I think Bernard Cornwell is definitely my favourite author, and I would recommend his books to anyone who likes history and adventure.

Hitchens

Chomsky

Dershowitz 

Cervantes

Heller

Orwell

Rushdie

 

Just some of the best dissident writers.

 

My favourite is still Marx's critique of hegel's philosophy of right.

 

Novels, nothing beats Heller, Cervantes and Orwell.

i've read Orwell, his books are pretty good, but he is a lier and a traitor of the revolution.

I really liked Metro 2033 although searching the right stations on the map was a hell due to bad translations from Russian to English :P

I liked "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen (I have read it 4 times: 3 times in romanian and once in english), "Quo vadis" by Henryk Sienkiewicz, "Winnetou" by Karl May... "Ivanhoe" maybe (maybe... I read it 3 times)

 

From romanian literature I can recomand "Ultima noapte de dragoste, intaia noapte de razboi" ("Last night of love, first night of war")by Camil Petrescu, "Ion" by Liviu Rebreanu... there are a lot of good and interesting books.

Yeah, I'll probably have to go with Name of the Wind and Wise Man's Fear, by Rothfuss. Even though they have some heavy-reading parts, overall they are quite good, and I'm enthusiastically waiting for the third one to come out.

 

I've also really enjoyed Ender's GameDune and World War Z. I am yet to read the Foundation series.

 

If you haven't read them, do so. At the very least read a description of them and choose accordingly to your likings, as long as you are into Sci-Fi or Medieval Fantasy. 

You really need to read the Foundation series. Pretty awesome if you ask me.

But for books : 
1st : The Rift War Saga - Raymond Feist - the most awesome book series i have ever readed in the fantasy genre. 
2nd : The Mistborn Trilogy - Brandon Sanderson - the start is a bit slow , but the 2nd book really picked up , and the 3rd book just pummeled the ground. THere is also one more book , a different sequel , which is pretty funny and good too.
3rd : Foundation Series - Asimov - 'nuff said. I reccommend all of Asimov books. Every single one is worth it.

4th : Roadside Picnic ( Piknik krai putya ) - Strugatsky - all of the books from the brothers Boris and Arcadii Strugatsky are awesome. Roadside picnic is the inspiration for the STALKER games. You gotta read them. Old soviet Sci-fi/fantasy by Strugatsky is a must to read. You would miss a lot if you don't do so.
There also a whole pile of other books i have readed , but i can't remember the names right now.

Favorite book of all time:
Open - Andre Agassi's autobiography
It's awesome, even if you never had any interest in Tennis!

Dune
The Dune Dune xD. Even though the universe is worth exploring. It is very heavy however.

Terry Pratchett's Discworld series
Laughs, laughs, laughs

Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time
Monumental! The best spent six years of my life reading all the books.
