.

*************************************************************************

In this page, I mention all literary works that have left a trace, a memory in my head, that made ​​me dream one day or forever…
The list is not exhaustive: it will be completed over time with new reading I consider as noteworthy and it will also be updated by withdrawals (disinterest) and additions (oblivion).

They were classified, for the moment, according to the following genres: science, mathematics, physics, cosmology, psychology, philosophy, thriller, SF and fantasy, epic, theater, brief story, novel, children’s novel, autobiography, essay .

I plan to write an article for certain works to explain why I give it personally qualifier noteworthy, that is to say, worthy of being included in my personal bibliography. As soon as the article about a book from that table is published, a link to the article will be accessed from the title of the work in the table.
