... Harry Potter - book 7
Life it what happens while you wait for your dreams
Joy and beauty dance where open eyes meet
Fortune does not mean to have the best of everything, but to make of everything the best
She loves him more than he would ever now, he loves her more than he would ever show

Never ever victim

Andreas Eschbach: Der Nobelpreis.

The noble price has been corrupted, a candidate has been pushed by bribing and blackmailing. To this end, a young girl has been kidnapped, whose father gets his brother - a skillful picklock and industrial spy - out of jail in order to help him.

Masterful storytelling by Eschbach, as usual, well thought-out and full of surprising turns. It takes a very philosophical twist at the end. :) Highly recommendable, as everything I've ever read by this author.

Hi Saphira!

I read this book long time ago. I don't like a lot Anne Rice, but I was recommended to read this one and I didn't regret this. I enjoyed it a lot  :wOOt:

Good choice  :lol:

Just finished "The final meeting" by Sándor Márai.
I'm not sure if that is the exact the title in English (I read it in Spanish).

Good stuff, I must say. Psycological, depressing and very well writen. The best of this book, from by point of view, is that it leaves all the interpretations and possible explanations to the reader. You can think about it for weeks and still find new meanings (and feelings too) around the plot. Highly recomended (Somehow, I feel that Lucy will agree with me :wink2: )

Sounds good  ::)
I'll search for it in our library.
But now I am busy with reading another great book. I think it will take me a lot of time to read and understand... and remember - maybe more than half a year.

Anyway - thank You Alu for good tip.  :)

Hm... Could you find the original Hungarian title in the book? Or tell me the Spanish one please, I have no idea which one of his books is this. ??? My guess is a book from 1942 that is called "The candles burn to stubs" or something like this. :)

Thank you for reading Hungarian literature! :bow:

The original title is something like this:
"A Gyertyak Csonkig Egnek" ... How the heck do you pronounce that? :blink:
I've just read in a Chilian page that the original title has nothing to do with its title in Spanish, which was actually set by the editorial that re-issued the book (you know, the classic "lets change the title to attract more people and sell more books!  ::) "). I'm sure that's the reason why you didn't know, which book it was.

Anyway, I read following my mom's suggestion. It seems that Márai has become a favorite among the Colombian "oldies" :wink2: .

At the moment I'm reading a book written by a slovene writer Samo Petančič- Anor Kath, Pota Magov..it's a s-f but really good..It's about the rising of Anor Kath..the ancient power..and sorcerers trying to control and posses it..fantastic story..but I'm the only one who can read it.. :shifty:

Earlier this topic, Alu was reading a book by the 2006 Literature Nobel Prize winner. Before leaving to Argentina, I was looking for a good read in the plane, and I found "My name is Red" by exactly the same guy, Orhan Pamuk.
Give him a try, you won't regret it. I'm currently reading another of his books, "The New Life". I was so thrilled when I found the book's original title and I could understand it - without the dictionary!  :wOOt: I've been trying to deal with Turkish (hmm... guess why  :innocent:) but it's horrible  :ninja:
