The story itself is from one of them, which tells about the behaviour of other participants of the trip, about myself, about feelings, which causes the trip.

The book itself is written very unusually, the author makes a digression from the main plot of the book, which describes a small history of the life of the protagonist, such a minor story, in which the author immerses the reader.

In addition to easy, English humor which permeates this book, the reader will get a brief history of England (and Scotland).

The book is very tense and the tension builds until the very end. Can the rescue from certain death turn into such a terror that even death will seem merciful gift of fate.

The book is not just fascinating, it's great to read in one breath.

10. 451 degrees Fahrenheit. Ray Bradbury (Farenheit 451 Ray Bradbury)

The book refers to an easy genre of science fiction. However, in my opinion, this is one of the most significant works of the twentieth century and should be included in the school curriculum and studied in all languages of the world.

This book is about what firefighters do not that put out fires, but burn books. This dystopia about culture and its decline that may occur until it is forced complete destruction.

The book by ray Bradbury absolute symbolic, it's up to date in every moment in time.

Enjoy reading books in the original English.
