  1. Many people here say that you don't need to impose books. But I think it is necessary. And even necessary. A person without a cultural basis is an animal. It is not particularly good with a cultural basis, but without it, it is bad at all. I don't mean just culture, but moral culture. Therefore, I am sure that every person-according to their age, of course-can and should read the Bible (but only thoughtfully, with comments from historians and religious scholars), Tolstoy's War and Peace. But I don't know about the third one. If there is such a book-a History of human error-then it would be good for everyone to read it. And if not, then maybe the history of Russia. And not just stories and interpretations – like Kostomarov's three-volume book, but including sources – a Tale of Bygone Years, including a brilliant Word about Igor's regiment. It seems to me that if people all over the world knew the history of Russia better, knew and understood our country better, it would not benefit the whole world.

  2. Good morning. 1. “Oblomov”. The author is Ivan Goncharov. If you are not a snail, then Oblomov will give you a powerful incentive that neither Napoleon Hill nor any other author of the books in the how to be successful series will give you. This work of Goncharov pushes people to start at least something to change in their lives. What is the book about? I don't want to go into details, so in a nutshell. The book is about a man who has spent his entire life on a bed. Not because he was disabled, but because everything was too lazy for him. In the image of just one character, Goncharov conveyed the whole essence of our people: slow, slow, lazy … Subtle humor, a great plot and a fountain of motivation… in general, the book is a must-read for everyone. 2. “Crime and punishment”. By Fyodor Dostoevsky. Crime and punishment is written in simple and beautiful language. Such descriptions, comparisons… you read and see every detail in detail. The point is that good intentions do not always lead to good results and consequences. The book is a must-read for those who want to enjoy the real, rich and powerful Russian language, as well as understand how important it is to carefully weigh everything before doing something. 3. “The Da Vinci Code”. Written by Dan Brown. The Da Vinci Code is a modern and highly controversial book. Dan Brown's novel, published back in 2003, is still considered one of the bestsellers and is among the top ten books according to many experts. All that is described in the work, of course, is only an assumption of the author (although based on numerous studies), but it is very interesting. The novel forces us to look at the usual things that we do not think about and that accompany us throughout life, from a different angle, to consider alternative points of view.

    In general, I strongly recommend reading it.

    1. As a child, you should read “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Graham. A deep, rather “adult” children's book. At any age, it is easy to read, opening up new facets of meaning.

    2. As a child, you should read “Emil of Lenneberg” by Astrid Lindgren. Very funny about children and ironic about adults. Such a light emphasis on the fact that adults are not always a role model. Very good for developing critical thinking. This incredibly funny book is also suitable for adults.

    3. The Catcher in the Rye by Jerome Salinger. Here it is worth reading it in adolescence / adolescence, it makes a huge impression on the young reader. Adults can read, but not the same. One of the best books of our time, if you read it on time.

    And adults should read based on their own tastes. A classic comes in-great, it's a whole world. No, it's okay, there will be no exam:)
    I'm sure that it's better to just read and enjoy it than to suffer from boredom over a book, but still read. Not one of the most beautiful and profound thoughts of the author will be perceived if the reader is not ready for it.

  3. I immediately warn you that this is a subjective opinion. Objectively, only the ” ABC ” can be recommended without fail to everyone, again in my opinion.

    1. E. I. Zamyatin's” We”, because Orwell's” 1984 “and Huxley's” Brave New World ” grew out of it (the authors of Zamyatin read and wrote about it).

    2. Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace is more about his understanding of history. I found it interesting.

    3. “Something for nothing” Sheckley R. A short story about a very original system of lending for truly any desire. An original look at the theme of immortality.

  4. Master and mMargarita
    Anna Karenina
    The Karmazov brothers/ idiot
    I do not recommend The Catcher in the Rye( I treat many authors calmly, I understand why they are loved,but the praise of this book is absolutely not clear)
    P.S. The Citadel of Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  5. Dostoevsky. Anything you can do. First of all, the Brothers Karamazov .

    «1984» By George Orwell.

    The Catcher in the Rye Jerome Salinger.�

    Of course, there are many more books that anyone should read.

  6. London-Martin Eden .
    London-Wolf Larsen.
    Camus – the myth of Sisyphus.
    Camus as Caligula.
    Schopenhauer – life as will and representation.
    Orwell is a clergyman's daughter.

  7. I agree with the first comment: Dostoevsky, I prefer Crime and Punishment.

    1. Tolstoy's “War and Peace” is a classic.

    2. Bulgakov “The Master and Margarita”.

    3. Alexandre Dumas “The Count of Monte Cristo”.

  8. I agree with previous commentators that there are probably no books in the world that are really worth reading for every person without exception.

    However, my personal top three books are as follows::

    Trite, but without Orwell's “1984” top will not do-it is, so to speak, about the future, which can not be allowed.

    Next I want to mention the book by the Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl “Man in search of meaning” – this is about the past that cannot be repeated.

    And the last one should be a collection of short stories by the British neurologist and neuropsychologist Oliver Sacks, “The Man who Mistook his Wife for a hat” – about the present, which is impossible to imagine.

    As for me, these three books give a great idea of our world from not the most unpleasant sides, so I consider them important and necessary, even if not for everyone, but for many.

  9. Well, the answer is clearly going to be subjective.�

    1. The Bible (even if you are not a believer-it is worth reading at least once, if only because the Bible has had a huge impact on Humanity, giving art a lot of characters, plots, etc. In general, it is considered that a cultured person should also read the Koran)

    2. Quiet Don

    3. Martin Eden

  10. I think these should be social and philosophical essays, so that people think about the problem, expand their horizons, and not just for show. My top:

    An American tragedy;

    To Kill a Mockingbird;

    and, of course, 1984.

  11. Our classics are a must. However, I won't repeat myself.�

    But if there are only three, then I will choose “Catch-22″ by D. Heller,” The Castle “by F. Kafka and” At the Foot of the Tower of Babel ” by Sigurd Hela.

  12. Friedrich Nietzsche “Thus spake Zarathustra” – to understand how the world works. Deep observations and excellent command of the word.

    Henry Ford “My Life, my achievements” – to understand how to live. A completely ordinary person, just like us, who changed the world.

    Omar Khayyam rubaei-for the soul. Poems will lift your mood in a difficult period, allow you to look at the world and yourself from a different side.

  13. I don't think there is a single book that everyone needs to read. There are simply no such books. There is your personal list that you can recommend to others. And it is not a fact that if they have made an impression on you,it will also be with others.
    But if you are interested in the opinion of people with TQ,then I can name the first thing that came to mind:
    Fight ClubPalahniuk,1984Orwela what Bread and hamBukowski.
    But this is not true in the last instance and in general, read the Bible. Find something for yourself.

  14. A question with the statement that it is necessary to impose, period.�

    Just because I like some 3 books – and I like them a lot more-doesn't mean you need to promote my tastes. A book is an individual thing, and propaganda is mass. I mean, I can tell you something, but not because I think everyone should read them too.

    Pelevin's “Snuff” is a future divided into enclaves and cyberpunk with allusions to familiar countries. Special thanks to the author for his excursions into the psychology of women.�

    Pratchet's “Minor Gods” is an alternate Discworld reality, a story about how the gods become powerful or vice versa.�

    Voinovich's “Moscow-2042” is the future with the advent of “communism” in a particular area of a particular city.
