Needless to say, people do read, at least the majority of them. So I decided to present my reading interests here.

There is a lot of books I read till now. These books represent various countries, cultures and styles. There is also a number of books which I began reading, but have not finished yet.

I am still unsure how I will present the books and authors, so I'll begin with mentioning some names.

Jule Verne

In this section I shall tell about the French fantasy writer, Jule Venre. If you noticed my pseudonym, and if you read his 20000 ligues under water, you may have perceived some connection . . .

Gerald Durrell

Gerald Durrell was a celebrate writer and naturalist. His books about animals and people shaped my view on the world. He was the first to create a zoological park, which prime purpose was not to show animals, but to conserve the endangered species. This zoological park is situated on the island of Jersey . . .

Tor Åge Bringsværd has a short story called People I Never Met. The title speaks for itself . . . Well, I can start a list of my own, beginning with Gerald Durrell - I had a dream of meeting him, but the dream was ruined in 1995 . . .

Some places you must visit, if you are interested in Gerald Durrell, his books, and his work of life:

Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie is my absolutly favourit detective writer. I have read almost all of her books and short stories. I have plans of publishing a very well-ordered and almost complete list of all the title known to me. If you are interested, come back in a week or two . . .

Some resources on Agatha Christie (there are surprisingly few topics about her on the 'Net) :

John Ronald Ruel Tolkien

J. R. R. Tolkien. The name speaks for itself. Those who read some of his books may nod appreciatingly, those who haven't, should come back here, when this section is complete.

Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings are well known, his ability to tell fantasy stories is famous . . .

Here are some resources on Tolkien:

Tor Åge Bringsværd

Tor Åge Bringsværd is a Norwegian writer, who created several novels and short stories in a variety of styles. He writes mainly in Norwegian, though his works were translated to many languages.

My friend Njål and I converted one of Bringsværd's short stories, Faen. Nå har de senket takhøyden igjen. Må huske å kjøpe nye knebeskyttere. (Damn. They have reduced the ceiling height again. Must remember to buy new knee-protectors.) to a Windows 3.1 helpfile format. This file is available for download with author's permission. (The file is a selfextracting archive.)

Here are some resources on Bringsværd:

Jostein Gaarder

Jostein Gaarder is a Norwegian writer, who distinguished himself with several books. The one that I read, and that made a great impression on me was Sofies verden (Sofie's world). This book is translated to a great number of languages, including Russian. It tells about the history of philosophy, and also makes the reader to see at things from a different point of view . . .

Alexander Dumas

Who have not read The Three Musketeers, and the rest of his books? More is to come . . .
