I have a lot of favourite novels, so I will not write down all of them.
But here's some of the latest (I read and liked)
J.R.R. Tolkien - The hobbit, The lord of the rings.
I read the hobbit in English, the lord of the rings in hungarian. In both language it was beautiful.
Madách Imre - Az ember tragédiája /Imre Madach - The Tragedy of man
Even though it's not a novel, it's a dramatic verse.
