message 3: by Ikra (new)

Ikra Amesta how come no one has voted for 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' by Milan Kundera?


message 4: by Jay (new)

Jay Adams-feuer It amazes me how much I've read of these first 96 books. I couldn't begin to tell you which was my favorite-- except that I love Anna Karenina.

Yas Tina wrote: "Lolita was written in English."

Yes but it was written by a Russian author.
