1. Notes From Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky
Pretty short, but pretty heavy. It's a bout a man who criticizes himself and the society. Setting in Russia.
2. The Plague, Albert Camus.
Absurdism. An allegorical novel about the society.
sourced from: wikipedia.
3. The Stranger, Albert Camus.
This sounds more interesting. The synopsis is more easier to follow chronologically and it's about murder. Also something about Absurdism.
4. The Fall, Albert Camus.
Pretty short. Something about self-conflict and hipocrisy.
5. The Unbearable Lightness Of Being, Milan Kundera.
Something about existentialism and sex.
6. The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Thornton Wilder.
Pretty short. Kind of interesting. It's about a priest who witnesses five people perishing due to a collapsed bridge in Peru. He compiles a book about those five people to answer his own question of why God let that happen. It's about direction and meaning in life beyond one's own will.
7. Nausea, Jean-Paul Sarte
Existentialism. About solitude, reality and commitment. Wait, why are the profiles described in these existentialism novels seem to match my personality in some parts?? uh-oh..
8. Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky
Right to murder? Moral dilemmas. Pretty short. Something like Tell-Tale Heart. Something about nihilism.
9. Children of Gebelawi, Naguib Mahfouz.
Islam, Christianity, Judaism versus Science. Not much info.
A House For Mr. Biswas
about independence and meritocracy somewhat somewhere along the lines as The White Tiger, aside from India's political and socio-economic issues.
