No your favorite books but your favorite classic 
 
 
 
special mention to "Les miserables" by Victor Hugo (amazing, spectacular but way to long) and "The grapes of Wrath ( too sad, I mean that ending?

1. The Brothers Karamazov - Dostoevsky 

2. Crime and Punishment - Dostoevsky 

3. The Idiot - Dostoevsky

I think the only "classic" in Dostoevsky's work  is Crime and punishment

  • LocationWith everyday, he's trying to complete a new chapter with something more refined, improved and something new. He never fails to keep himself grounded, he reminds himself of his flaws, his weakness and most importantly his strengths. Just like the clay, the uninteresting, blank taeyong, is fulfilling his goals one after the other, who says it's too late to set a goal in life?“
