Greyweather | 2 comments My personal favorite is Natsume Sōseki's Kokoro.

I have heard no shortage of good things about Murakami, and I am looking forward to picking up The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle or Kafka on the Shore in particular.

Daren | 13 comments Historical fiction Shōgun and Gai-Jin,James Clavell both are excellent. I also enjoyed Cloud of Sparrows, which was a lot 'lighter' but a good quick read.Takashi Matsuoka
