RIP Bourdain. I've read this many times. A must read for any Cook and Chef alike. Inspiring as hell.

Of Mice and Men (Penguin Red Classics): Amazon.de: Steinbeck, Mr John:  Fremdsprachige Bücher

 

A reread after 10 years. I was in high school then but still remember how the ending hit me. Now, I'm more impressed with the inevitable turn of events and unforgivingly forward-moving plot; the detailed setting descriptions; the characters and their (unsuccessful) struggle for something better; the on-point dialogue; and the sobering narration putting all of it together. It's not a long or really complex story, but it's masterfully crafted.

I believe this is a title most US people are familiar with. What strikes me as the most impressive is how the author manages to characterise a 16 year old so believably. You learn a lot about Holden Caulfield by the way he talks, the way he does things, and, maybe most importantly, the things he doesn't say or do. Regardless of whether you see him as an insufferable human being or not, he feels very real.
