Midshipman
George Orwell : 1984

Still very relevant in its observations today, even if it is an incredibly bleak outlook on life.

For something a bit less serious : Anything by Terry pratchet, the mixture of humour and fantasy is brilliant. It also takes the edge off after reading 1984.

The best book I've ever read was called "Of Human Bondage" by Somerset Maugham. I have advised and still recommend this book to all my friends. She is gorgeous. It is about a person, his experience and about art! If you want to understand how a great artist differs from a simple one, then the author will describe it to you very clear and with irony.
The rest of my five: Flowers for Algernon, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, En man som heter Ove. I adore each of them and am ready to read them many, many times!
