I think it would be a good idea to have a topic about books..so that we will not get lost into the former topic :)

maxime_eduardo a écrit :Julius Ceasar by Shakespeare is definitely an AMAZING book ! Read it if u dont know what to read this time


Marie a écrit :Does anyone know Tess Gerritsen ? i read Vanish 2 years ago totally by chance and now im just addicted to her..So if you're afraid of Shakespeare, read Tess Gerritsen lol. She's considered (at least in the united states) as one of the best thriller autor.

I totally agree with you ! A very nice idea :wink:

Well I have not really read the books you are talking about and my english is not perfect at all :lol:
However I have read some (very) great books in English as The Lords of the rings, The silmarillion and other books written by JRR Tolkien or The Rivan Codex by Leigh and David Eddings ...

The mephisto Club or The sinner by Gerritsen..but you can read the first book from her you find (hum does that sentence make sense ? xD), it will be likely to be really good (in my opinion)

Hi every one ! thank's for all the titles you proposed earlier. I love reading in English, but there isn't any English book-shop in my town and at the library, there's not a big choise ! Hence it's quite diffictult to find good books ! Here are some titles I enjoyed :
-The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury
-The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
-First Family by David Baldacci
-The Blackstone Key by Rose Melikan (this one is a bit hard)
-The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
-Daughter of the Ganges by Asha Miro
2012/2014 : Fermat PCSI1/PC
2014/... : Ecole des Mines de Douai
