They don't know what is a good book because they can't even comphrehend one! - anonymonstrum

306 Holes - Louis Sachar

Why is this not higher. The mystery is top notch and you care for the characters - Rezerise

This book is pretty good

307 A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens V 1 Comment
308 The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

One of the greatest books I've ever read. Easily my new favorite author.

The best book I have ever read,AWESOME


I Thought This is At Least On Top 5
Why So Underrated?!
Better Than Hunger Games :|
The Best Books I Ever Read

309 Alex Rider Series

What this should be way higher

What the heck is Alex Rider doing in sopt No.305... If the stupid hunger games series can be third, then Alex Rider can be the greatest book in the entire universe

310 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

Such a sad, yet good, book - shawnmccaul22

311 Faust - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Goethe's dark take on the Doctor Faustus tale is propably the best known and most important piece of German literature, both as a stage play and in book form, but even without its status, this just has so much to offer; and Goethe's works never shied away from touchy topics, in this case most of all suicidal thoughts and existential crisis, but also religion. Also: several quotes from the book are turned to everyday German phrases. - Martin_Canine

This book is so amazing even though its old and not as easy to understand, I reccomend you give it a shot! I'm reading it at the mountain and its pure poetry!

312 The Divine Comedy - Dante Alighieri

Can't believe how low this is on the list. Sure, blockbuster books are way better than the basis of literature in Europe, the creator of the concept of heaven and hell and the master of mathematics & poetry.

Only the works of J.R.R. tolkien himself can match the poetic genius of Dante!

From his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, it really is a must-read!

Medieval literature at its very best!

The 9 circles of hell show justice that not all sinners are placed together. Some sins are worse than others.

313 Life of Pi - Yann Martel

Love it! I read it, was devastated. Turned the last page, and started it again!

An outstanding book, one of my favourites. It really puts the world into perspective. - Dylaphant

314 Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

This is a great, action-packed book with adventure and mystery and all sorts of cool stuff. Also, if you like '80s references, mystery, fantasy, adventure, arcade games, dystopian worlds, futuristic technology, or even just a plain-old good read, then I highly recommend this book to you. Even if you don't like any of those things, or even if you absolutely HATE any of those things, I'd still recommend this book, because the genius behind it makes anything that might tick you off about it seem unimportant. It'
S a great read, so do me a personal favor, and try it!

Best book ever

315 Les Misérables - Victor Hugo

One of the greatest pieces of literature to have ever been written, perfectly portraying the injustice in society. This book should be at the very top of this list

316 Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 1
317 Naruto Box Set 2: Volumes 28-48 with Premium
318 A Shore Thing - Snooki V 1 Comment

Aside from Proust and Kafka, these books are 100% girly if you ask someone who reads them: Sarah LeBlanc. - kristyrosepetal4

320 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K Rowling
