(Basically I will compile the list after we are done and post it on a separate thread under "Banglacricket Members 1001 Books To Read Before You Die". So it will be an amalgamation of users' mix choice. Then again the more you contribute the more you will feature. So the personalization will just crease out.)

In my introductory college writing course, the first line in my essay read as follows:

"In books lie knowledge."

Those words have never been truer

Some very good books mentioned thus far. George Orwell's my favorite author.

I would add Animal Farm and 1984 to this list.

That's a great one too. Great promotion for Burma as well, and they know it. When I was there, it's a common site to see people carrying just that book only, in the hope of selling it to a tourist like you.

ok looking at the lists, I guess I gravitate towards drunk russians, south asians, or obscure american authors (besides the classics).

In that case mandatory books forced to read in high school:

44. Joy Luck Club (You asked for it!)
45. My Antonia (again I have no control...)

and the existentialists (more like short novellas)

46. No Exit (Sartre)
47. The Stranger (Camus)
48. Metamorphosis (Kafka)

and of course, obligatory Joyce

49. Ulysses
50. Finnegan's Wake

Love Terence Mckenna's discussion on the last one!

51. I am allowed to inject personal taste so I choose "Never Quit".

It's not another macho military book, but rather gives a first-person POV of a goddamn ninja who can breeze through life carrying himself with cadence and swagger. PJ's maroon beret is one of the hardest objects to earn with a phenomenally high attrition rate.

Heck this should be a required reading for our players!

54/ Ekattur er chithi (Letters from 71) -

Collected letters from freedom fighters who went to war in 71... I still get goosebumps reading some of them (even after reading them on multiple occassions )... No fiction based novels can ever do this to you.
