I have collected some quotes from these books on a separate page.


My favorite authors are Margaret Atwood, George Orwell, Kazuo Ishiguro, Phillip K. Dick.

  • The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro: A literary masterpiece.

  • A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess : This raises a very important moral question, “Is it better to choose to be bad rather than being conditioned to do only good?”

  • Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell: A dystopian world where every move of citizens is watched by authorities. Without spoiling too much, I would like to recommend it as it is one of my favorites.

  • Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro: There is something about the narrators in Kazuo’s novel that i like. They can be pretty unreliable. In this one, the narrator is an AI and so it is interesting to see her perspectives and understanding of humans.

  • Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut: A humourous book mocking scientists and religion. I like Vonnegut’s way of storytelling.

  • Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: It is a beautiful novel which tells stories of lives of people during the Nigerian Civil War through the characters of five people.

  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: Margaret Atwood’s creativity and the dystopian world she had imagined really freaked me out here.

  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: Khaled Hosseini shows the power of love through a story based in Afghanistan, a country torn apart with continuous conflict since 1978, and the Taliban rule turns the worse situation into a disaster. This is one of the saddest books I have ever read. If you want to know the situation of Afghanistan, go for it. The beginning is set in 1964 and the story ends in 2003, we see regimes switching hands so many times, with drastically different fates of women.

  • Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes: Heartbreaking. It is on how society treats mentally retarded. I wasn’t satisfied with some parts of the book, but overall a creative one and I was instantly drawn to it.

  • Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood: This is a dystopian novel which is just so close to reality. With the technology growing up and tech corporations dominating the world, how will the future turn out for us?

  • A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki : Ruth Ozeki finds diary of a Japanese girl, which she suspected came from 2011 Tsunami to the shore in Canada. She gets worried about the safety of the girl while reading through the diary and a tragic tale unfolds. I didn’t like the spiritual or “quantum mechanics” elements in the book.

  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee : A hypocritic society seen through the lens of children of around 8 years old.

  • Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk: A critical look on our capitalistic lifestyles.

  • Animal Farm by George Orwell: Wanna know how democracy turns into a dictatorship? Pick up this.

  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie : Very good plot. If I tell you anything about a detective novel like this, it will spoil the novel for you.


Richard Dawkins is one of my favourites among the nonfiction writers.
