Favorite Non Mathematic or Science books?

  1. Jul 31, 2015 #1
    Besides liking countless books on the subjects of math and science, what other books do physicsforum members enjoy?

    In my case, I enjoy Don Quixote, Les Miserables, Oliver Twist, and all Jack London's works.

    I am addicted to detective fiction/murder mysteries, or any book where some mystery is explained after applied effort. To the extent I have any interest in science it is for the mystery-solving aspect of it. The story of, say, Volta's experiments, is just as fascinating to me as a Sherlock Holmes tale, for pretty much the same reason.

    However, I also like suspense stories, and suspense stories don't necessarily have a mystery at their core.
