Tombs of Sand
Recently, I recommended this book to a close friend. Usually, I do not do that - I mean recommend books. I believe reading is an extremely personal hobby and there is a lot of subjectivity in what we like to read. But this book is a great example where every two pages you want to put down the book and ponder over what you just read. The prose is simple and yet imbibed in it is profoundness of such measure that it awakens in you that intellectual for whom you had taken up this hobby of reading in the first place!
