You can add about 20 million of young people of Ukraine! Alchemist is maybe the most popular novel here. And our local publishers made really great illustrated edition which Paulo Coelho much appreciated himself during his visit to Ukraine. As for me I think Alchemist is really inspiring but I like more the other books of Coelho - "THe devil and miss Prim" and "Veronika decides to die".
This year in Ukraine is the year of Dan Brown. Me also felt the victim of his involute novels and almost "swallowed" "DaVinci code", "Angels and demons" and "Deception point"

I'm afraid I'm going to have to put some really obvious ones out there. Only because I always find myself going back to them:

On the Road - Jack Kerouac

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S

Rum Diaries - also Hunter S

I also love books of poetry/short stories (easy to pick up, read a bit, then put down). Currently working my way through Edgar Alan Poe.

Oh, and "Who Said the Race is Over?" - Anno Birkin......a friend gave me a copy and it is unbelievable stuff (particularly from someone so young). You have to order it as not many book shops hold it, but it is WELL worth the £6.

And besides Samsara, have you finish Susan Sontag's On Photography? I thought you were looking for some books about photography although this is more to photography criticism...

I think the question you should be asking me is have I started Suusan Sontag's book!

It's on my To Do list Ciku! I'll get there soon hopefully. I just have so many things to read....its hard to find the time!
