harry potter and deathly hallows

Kite runner

Monk who sold his ferrari

Doctor Zhivago

Bad boy by Olivia Goldsmith

The Magician by W.Somerset Maugham(Back in university days, when we were studying Yeats' poetry and the relevance of it with the Occult, we came across the Golden Dawn sect and the Crawley case. Unfortunately, we did not have the time to elaborate on the matter. I've read Maugham's The Moon and Sixpence, and when I noticed that the extraordinary- to say the least- character of Haddo in The Magician was based on Crawley, I decided to give it a chance.)

Slaughter-House-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Also 5/6 bengali books

This are only few which i could remember now!!will add other later

I know, I really wanted to like the book but I couldn't.  Its probably the only book where I like the movie better.  When I was reading the book, I just couldn't get into it, and I kind of didn't like Darcy in the beginning, I know everyone says I'm crazy cuz everyone else loves the book and talks about it so much.   Big smile

haha..Lolz One mustnt TRY to like a Book..Without trying, if u like a book, Only then can one say it imprssed u..U truthfully said u didnt like it..I was just wondering why u didnt thats all...
Mr Darcy..Hmm I do like that guy..but he is like a bit "perfect person"..So he kind of pales in comparison to Mr Rochester who is one of my personal fav characters..from Jane Eyre..Often these two characters are compared..N Perhaps I may seem quite wierd sayign a perfect kinda guy actually pales in comparison to a flawed Byronical character!LOLEmbarrassedWink
well, in a herd of Angels if u find a Human, being a human u will like him/her more!WinkLOL
