I've read the book thief and it is awesome, when you said you had a list of books recommended to you i immediately checked if it was there. You should definitely check it out.

Fantastic list, pretty much a collection of all the books I've been telling myself to read for ever. Sad to see Neil Gaiman so far back on the list. Sadder to see that Faulkner made it on but Kafka didn't. The Castle more than deserves to be on the list, or at least the more accessible The Trial, in my humble opinion.

Naked Lunch kind of blows. Lovely Bones is nothing much. Fortunately, no one's added the worst book ever: The Sorrows of Young Werther. (Even Goethe later despised it).

"The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" by Haruki Murakami
And I second the suggestion of "The Botany of Desire" by Michale Pollan - great book!
