Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.
This week's question is:
Name a book (or books) from a country other than your own that you love. Or aren’t there any?
Oh dear. I'm Norwegian, and almost all my favourite books are foreign. I don't read many Norwegian authors these days, and when I do, it's mostly crime novels. I read so many books from English-speaking countries that I don't actually think of them as foreign. Here are a few I love that aren't from the English-speaking world:
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Záfon (Spain)
The Inkspell Trilogy by Cornelia Funke (Germany)
Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (France)
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne (France)
Mio, My Mio and The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren (Sweden)
Last Rituals by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir (Iceland)
I tried to find some from other continents than Europe, but I couldn't think of any. Seems I'm firmly rooted in Western culture.
