    Fairy Tales..

    I prefer the traditional ones. Anything by Hans Christian Andersen. "The Princess and the Pea" stays my favourite by him though. From the Arabian Nights, however I loved "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves". The "Askeladden-tales" by Peter Asbjørnsens (& Moe) were also good. Jacob Grimms...

    Romantic book recommendations

    I think you should give "Priority" by Iselin C. Hermann a try. I'm reading it at the moment, and it's really good so far, I think i might be something for you. It's a collection of letters between Jean-Luc and Delphine. Incredible.

    Haruki Murakami

    I googled and found 5 of the above mentioned short stories, if anyones interested (I haven't read any of them yet though, plus there's probably some more out there. I don't know.): http://www.geocities.jp/yoshio_osakabe/Haruki/Books/BlindWillow-EricHan.html...

    Sarah Kane

    Hey Rigana, I’m so glad you read it. I think she’s brilliant. There is something “different” to her style. I’m really not sure how to explain it, plus my English isn’t exactly terrific, so I apologize for that. I read her plays in which order they were given out, and if you are interested I’d...

    Yup. I've read everything by her, which isn't much by the way (5 plays & 1 screenplay). I started a thread called "Sarah Kane", but no one seems to have heard of her, so I'm glad you stumbled across one of her plays. :) I have read one by Pinter too; "Betrayal", which was pretty good.

    Suggestions for a melancholic

    Hey downthrough! Try "4:48 Psychosis" by Sarah Kane. It was written shortly before she comitted suicide after struggling with manic depression for many years. Reading that play was like being witness to it happening, which wasn't a pleasant feeling at all.

    Ian McEwan

    No need to apologize. :) I guess I just read it a little "different" from how you did. I don't know. But I agree with you on it might being a help, however I don't believe that you can't like a book, because you and the characters had nothing in common. I understood her and her feelings, but...

    Jette A. Kaarsbøl. Her one and only book so far. Frederikke Leuenbech is the main-character, whose life changes after meeting Frederik Faber and his circle of acquaintances, one of whom is George Brandes, by the way. :D Any bells ringing? :) The author won "De gyldne laubær" (an award I'm not...
