The best roman

What do you think is the best roman you have ever read?

For me: Harry Potter
Harry Potter is the first roman I can read more than once. First I read it in my mother tongue: German. Now I read it in English and after that I think I will read it in French as soon as I can French good enough.

And you?


  • Dear Kathi,

    for me the best roman I ever read is Dr. Faustus by (or from?) Thomas Mann in German. It mixed me up and changed my y view of life. I lived with the figures, above all with the little ill boy and Adrian Leverkühn, the main figure. I read it only once, but very intensively for months.
    The Harry Potter romans frighten me and I bought them for my turkish friends in turkish.

  • Hello,

    Unless you're discussing your favorite Ancient Italian person, in which case, mine is Julius Caesar, then you should re-title this thread 'The best novel'.

    Good luck!

  • I was about to think that nobody reads anymore but finally you solved the mystery.
    Okay: My favorite Romans: Vergil and Berlusconi

  • Hi héra, the Tunisian going by the name of Hiba,
    1° Note that I wrote Tunisian with a capital T.
    2° It's fitting that you read Glenfidditch MacGregor's tip released on this thread on July 16.
    Summer is the right time to read novels. Enjoy your reading matters.
