A wizard of Earthsea - Ursula Le Guin
I liked it better than HP and LOTR. I thought better than HP coz it was a bit darker and better that LOTR coz of it's length ( am a lazy reader ).
Fianlly, I strongly believe, that reading one " Cosmos" or " Story of Philosophy" or "Sophie's World" does more good to you than an entire shop full of Alchemists.
Ranjitha SaysI quite liked that one. But it seemed very Catcher-in-the-Rye-ish. Don't know if that was intentional or unintentional, though.
