Question: What is the best book you've ever read?

Answers:

- I probably might have read better books, but the first that comes to my mind now is "The Book Thief". The history happens in Germany during World War II. The narrator is the Death :shock:, and it tells the history of a ten-year-old girl whose family is hiding a jewish in the basement of their house. This girl steals some books and they have a special meaning in the unfolding of the story.

- I loved to read Harry Potter series / Lord of the Rings / Narnia series / Twilight series / Gone with the Wind / The Da Vinci Code / Robinson Crusoe / Pride and Prejudice / Moby-Dick / The Little Prince, etc

I love Harry Potter and Gossip Girls series.

Sex and the City is a nice book too.

Hi Everybody!
First of all, I need to say that I LOVE reading. I really believe there is not "a best book", however there is "THAT book on THAT moment" and, all those books and reading make me complete! Don`t you agree?
Nice talk to you.
Sami

I must agree that books are like music. There's a special moment in our lives that just make them move us.
There're always the superbs.
I've read "The Four Loves" by C.S.Lewis (the author of Narnia) and this makes me wonder how to say
"livro de cabeceira" in English.
And "Capitu" by Machado de Assis. It is intense and I found it highly recommended.

This question is difficult because I like to read several books besides the books from my profession.
There are a lot of books that I've ever read such as the secrets; the Kite Runner and then some.

The best book I read, I think was The Shack, it's beautiful and touching, and I learnt a lot reading this book, after reading it, I started to have more faith and belief in God! So, it changed a little bit the essence of my being...

'The Shack' by William P. Young.
Oh Gosh, the best book ever. I do agree that a book is good in a certain time of our lives but this book makes me speechless. It talks about God. But the author's way of writing is totally out of the box. No matter the religion you belong to, you must read this book. It's the best ever. From all books I've ever read, this is the one that I could not have gone through life without reading.
Read the comments about it on orkut communities. It's worth it.

The best book I have ever read was a children's book " The Animal farm" from George Orwell, I loved it!Nowadays,I'm reading "Memories of the subsurface" from Fiódor Dostoiévski, which is quite good !It's a little bit dark but is funny!!! ;)

Had many books I read that I really enjoyed it. But ... to name a few, I liked the book "O último judeu" by Noah Gordon. I also enjoyed the books of Luiz Fernando Verissimo, Machado de Assis, among others. Like a lot of chronic, especially Fernando Sabino.

Jumiut

the beginning of your sentence has the meaning of "Existem/Há" and you should translate it as "There are"

There are books I read...

I read a few books, but I consider the best is "The Dream Seller" of the author Augusto Cury!

and you?

The shack is awesome!!! After reading it I made my mother read it too :P
I don't know a single person who dislike this book.
I like reading a lot, though I don't do it very often cause I don't buy books... But When I do... I read "Helena de troia" in just one week and it has more than 800 pages! Another good book is "The golden Compass", it's amazing but Ive never read any other book of the serie.

I'm currently reading "Eat, Pray, Love" by Liz Gilbert. To be honest I still don't know whether I love it or I hate it.

I read that too, but in English. If you liked this one, you should read The Pelican Brief.



"it keeps you reading it till the last page" = the book is a page turner. ;)

BrunoCosta
Nice Flávia!No doubt,Iguess any of John Grisham's Books is a page turner.

I love that book!

Actually, I should read more books. I can't say it was the best book I've ever read, but I remember that "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho was quite remarkable when I read it.

I love Harry Potter, but the best book I have ever read from the series is 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'

And I've heard of 'A Brief History of Time' and people says it is an amazing book, by the way, this book had a cameo in th movie 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban', in the Leaky Cauldron scene. ;D
