Three western books come to mind.|
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: It really opened up my imagination to this old fantasy world of Middle Earth that he created.
A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. Tragedy, drama, action. Set in the French Revolution, this kind of terror was actually happening in those days. I think this kind of thing (being reported to the government for having the wrong opinion, then persecuted) also happened in China more recently, I believe. (1966-1976)
The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. A French drama with lots of betrayal, plotting, and suffering. Deservedly a classic.
as for Nonfiction, Eat Right for your Type, a diet book based on one's blood type, has helped me to lose 22 lbs. (10 kg) without too much trouble. Of course, being overweight is more of a problem for westerners who travel everywhere by car than for Chinese, or other city folk.
