I want to read 1984 (George Orwell), I happen to have the book in English and I will start to read it soon. But I was thinking, we are often taught about our native country literature and there must be so many good books we're missing just because we don't know them. I read Animal Farm and I loved it, I think those books are quite known so, do you know any good book in English you would recommend? :)

I recommend No Comebacks. It's a collection of short stories by bestselling author Frederick Forsythe. This book is quite possibly the most dog-eared book that I own. I love every story in it. Give it a try.

Thank you for the recommendation! As soon as I finish 1984 I will give it a try!

I love sci-fi so Isaac Asimov's Foundation Series is pretty good if you are into sci-fi (with elements of socio-political stuff in it )
