The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.
The Call of Cthulhu', by H. P. Lovecraft
The only author who's book I threw away being so freaking scared! He invented horror & fantasy books and I haven't read anything that scary from anyone else. Not all of the stories are on the same level though. Far from it.
It was a pleasure to burn.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
Great author loved what I read from him.
All children, except one, grow up.
Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

The Perfume - Story of a Murderer - Patrick Suskind
One of my latest reads, really great book.
Lorsque j’avais six ans j’ai vu, une fois, une magnifique image, dans un livre sur la Forêt Vierge qui s’appelait « Histoires Vécues ».
Le Petit Prince - Antoine de St Exupéry
I'll let you look up the translation.
POUR moi, le chemin de la drogue a commencé par un éclat d’obus dans l’œil quand je n’étais pas encore conscient.
=====> For me, the path to drug started with a piece of bomb-shell in my eye while I was not even yet conscious. (or something like that, forgive the shitty translation).
Flash ou l'incroyable voyage - Charles Duchaussois
One of my all-time favorite books. A must-read.
I was quite disappointed to see that there's no great opening line from Asimov, or I couldn't find one just right now at least!
