this one's about ww1. Pretty much the exact opposite of what Remarque wrote about the same conflict, so it, indeed, was a pretty interesting read.

Here's an old favorite of mine. The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury, who also wrote Fahrenheit 451. A lovely piece of old SciFi from back when we though Mars was inhabitable. It sort of imagines that the colonization of Mars would mirror the Westward Expansion of America. A fascinating read that really leaves you thinking once it's over. It also tells a lot about the time period in which it was written. The hopes and fears of that time ring throughout.

H2G2, this "trilogy of five" is so much fun to read and imagine, Douglas Adams style is absolutely one of the best I ever read.

This is the best explanation of the series I've ever encountered. I'm stealing this and claiming it as my own. Please take this pic of a broad with a nanner as blutgeld.

I would reccomend watership down. Very comfy book.

Hmmm... "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman, I also liked "Books of blood" by Clive Barker.

I consider the Tao Te Ching a must read. You might call it "the philosophy of comfiness."

This is probably the most influential book about the life.

You've probably already heard of it (and read it), it's 1984, a classic that I've only recently read (finished today).
It's about an unprecedented dicatorship, uniquely strict and horripilating. It's pretty interesting, and presents many ideas still applicable today despite being written quite a while ago. Really rec

And of course, don't forget the classic "Brave new world" by Aldous Huxley.
A similar book, with a similar story.
While 1984 was about political control, brave new world was about social control.
Huxley wrote a review of 1984 to orwell

Also, old time radio drama adaptions for both books exist.
