What is the greatest book ever written?

What is the greatest book ever written? If you ask someone to name one, they will most likely name a book about which they are not completely sure. I think that is what fiction is good for. It takes the landscape of literature and paints it in a new manner. It brings a certain vision to your minds. It can be called fiction but to me, it is more than that. It is literature that touches your soul.

Is the world of fiction as harsh as that portrayed by Faulkner in The Sound and the Fury or by Hemingway in A Farewell to Arms or Thomas Mann in The Magic Mountain? One word: No. I don’t agree with you. When it comes to fiction, you can also find it in Harry Potter, Narnia, Percy Jackson & the Olympians, The Lord of the Rings, the Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Sandman, Heroes and several more fictional stories about how the world really is.

Of course, the heroes and stories have their flaws. They have their foibles and they also have serious issues. The good books, however, have their virtues. They also have beauty and a great value.

I would like to recommend a few books that I personally believe should be a part of everyone’s daily reading schedule. To me, these are some of the most beautiful books I have ever read.

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Sylvia J. Bowern)

Catherine the Great by Alexander Chekov (Henrik Marguerau)

Things Without Numbers by Michael Ondaatje (William Leech)

Idiot’s Guide to Happiness by Ovid (Henrik Gräffe-Briet)

The Discourses of Cicero (Robert Collins)

The Birth of the Right Hand of Esarhaddon by Howard Gathlin

The Last Days of Pompeii by Giuseppe Malo

The Return of the Kings: A Tale of the Roman Wars by Brian M. Ledmore

Letters of a Romantic Hero (Samuel Beckett)

A Song for Jessica (John Steinbeck)

What is the greatest book ever written? There are too many. This question can never be answered.
