“Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!”

by

Feynman is a really entertaining writer, though he sometimes reminds you of the Peanuts strip where Sally is going ``lookit! lookit! lookit!''.
The Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories

by

The first couple of stories were pretty interesting, but after a while the stories tend to get repetitive and predictable with nearly identical plots and themes. Nonetheless, it was worth it just to read the original story of the Cthulhu Mythos.
Anne Frank: The Book, the Life, the Afterlife

by

I never thought I could learn so much from someone so young.
Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

by

Simply Amazing. Written from the perspective of a teenage boy with Asperger's Syndrome, this book somehow vaguely reminds me of Saint Exupéry's The Little Prince (perhaps it's the way they both make you question the unnecessary complexities of day-to-day life)
La gran bonanza de las Antillas

by

I specially liked the parable like stories in the beginning, and while all of them are good writing, I think `The Flash' was just amazing, in it's brevity.
The Chess Machine: A Novel

by

Too speculative, for a work of non-fiction, and too unoriginal for a work of fiction. The first dozen pages start out with great promise, but then it simply becomes a pulp thriller with the chess automaton as just a peripheral plot element.

It really has a cool cover though!
