    Oh, recommending books for English learners is very dangerous!!!

    It entirely depends on what kind of books you like, and what level your reading comprehension is at.

    My favourite author is Stephen King, a horror writer, but if you don't like horror books, then you would hate them! They're also full of colloquialisms and a style of writing that is very personal to him, so I wouldn't recommend them.

    All I would say is try to find an English translation of a book you have already read in your own language first. That way, you already have a good idea of what happens and you'll be able to recognise a lot of it without having to run to a dictionary all the time.

    Re: English novel

    Shouldn't the correction be:

    'Which English novel is the best you've ever read?"

    It should indeed, and I thought I had corrected it as such. Having looked back at my post, I now see that I didn't. Oops!
