Thx expert I will actually try reading it. Anyways Im in the proces of reading a book called Burned Alive it's memories of a woman who grew up in the country of Jordan and after premerage sexual contact her family tried to kill her by burning. Its very sad because it shows how woman r treated in some parts of the world, for example her brother stangled her sister but that seemed "normal" since she dind't know any better.

I like the Art of War, some Harry Potter and High performance soccer, great books...I think it would be useful if someone could write a book relating soccer to machiavellian war strategy

Dostoievski - Crime and Punishment and Ciresarii are the best bookes I read. Ciresarii was written by an romanian author called Constantin Chirita. The story's got 5 volumes. The book is about a group of teenagers who go in different adventures. I really love the "Ciresarii" series. Ciresarii translated in english sounds like this: The Cherrys, or something like that. Cause the boys were from a street called The Cherry Street.
Now I'm reading Victor Hugo's book: Le Miserables.

I'm currently reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I haven't had too much time to read it lately and I haven't read too much of it but I like it so far.

I loved Dracula. Frankenstein was pretty good too.
And those are only my non soccer/football books.

I read robinson crusoe a long time ago and really liked it.You should definetly read it.
I loved the harry potter series,hobbit,treasure island and in non-fiction bks I loved outliers,freakonomics,undercover economist(currently on the last chapter) and brief history of time is also not too bad.

I tried reading the lord of the rings...but everytime I wud fall asleep and keep reading the same line over and over again.Too much unnecessary details!!!
