I read with interest this thread but judging by the reviews given i can't help thinking what a waste of time. not a single book worth it's weight. These novels you guys are reading a complete waste of time. I fail to grasp what the brothers will learn from the ill conceived thoughts of the kufar. Most novels contain 'pornographic' material not suitable for the mind of a muslim. The vivid description of the 'bedroom' is a familiar scene in most novels.
Brothers should instead immerse themselves in books that will benefit them in this world and the hereafter instead of 'qiil and qaal'. instead of reading a novel of 1000+ pages try reading the books hadith,fiqh, seerah or physics,biology, chemistry e.t.c
Perhaps the next thread should be about what benefits the brothers have derived from reading those books mentioned, I doubt we will get many replies.
