I've read a good few of these and thought they were excellent but there are plenty I haven't read. I particularly like political fiction so I'm now excited to read Home Fire, We and Harvest, so thank you for this list.

okay but can we talk about how jacks eyes look with those glasses lmao

Very unbalanced list. There are so many great books published in the east & the other parts of the world, and some of them have fantastic English translations. What kind of education did you get from your degree? The western-centric one for sure.

Isn't it convenient that just yesterday, when I watched this video, I found The Grapes of Wrath in one of these public free bookshelfes? 😀

Akshat Gupta says:

When I was in 10th grade, we were tasked to read any book from our Economics teacher's list. I chose The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I didn't have a physical copy of the book and I didn't bother pirating it as ebook because I would rather read in a physical book. For some very very fortunate happenstance, I found the last copy of this book in a nearby bookstore, and it's in a box set of 3 Hosseini books namely The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and And The Mountains Echoed. I remember hiding it in a very inconspicuous place because I didnt have enough money when I first found it. Im still very grateful to this day, having read the books, for finding that last gem in the bookstore. The Kite Runner was the story that broke me and then built me again in a different way. A Thousand Splendid Suns was the first time I bawled out on a book, it was a story of suffering and how the treatment of women could be made better in some places. And The Mountains Echoed is an anthology book that tells the stories of various characters who are to some degree related to each other. The general theme that binds these books together is redemption in one form or another.

Jean Ohannessian says:

The Heart of Darkness is about seeing Africa through the eyes of Europeans.
Things Fall Apart is about seeing Africa through the eyes of Africans.

Ayesha says:

Meri Jane says:

I just read Americanah and i was crying like a baby towards the end. It does go into romance quite a bit so if you aren't into that thing it may not be the best for you but it also goes into the perspective of being a foreigner in both America and in England, being Nigerian, experiencing racism, and experiencing feelings of regret, jealousy, mental health issues etc etc. It's so we'll written and I couldn't recommend it more!

honey vibes says:

bruh i remember reading Robinson Crusoe when i was like 9 years old and it was such amazing book

Éléonore Emond says:
