    A Fine Balance - Rohinton Mistry (I believe that's the author's name)
    War and Peace - Tolstoy
    The Razor's Edge - W. Somerset Maughm (also Of Human Bondage is good too)
    Bleak House - Dickens
    Portrait of a Lady - James
    Love in the Time of Cholera - Garcia Marquez

    --------------

    Oh, there are many more!!! (for example, I'm reading Daniel Deronda right now (by George Eliot - who was probably an INTJ) and am really enjoying it; only halfway through though) And sorry, I like long books.

    And yes re. Kundera - I'd say he's an INFJ author

    Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

    The Four Agreements by that Native American author guy of the Toltec tribe

    My favorite book above all others ever written or to be written is by my favorite author. The book is the Bible. A book that actually reads you as you read it. Fascinating.
    Nothing, nothing, nothing is impossible with GOD.

    I had zero sympathy for Madam Bovary. In the early parts of the book, I wanted to slap her silly! Then when she kills herself I am just stunned thinking what about your child?!?! Epitomy of selfishness.

    And I also had very little sympathy for Anna Karenina.

    I had no sympathy for Madame Bovary either. I had only a little for Anna Karenina, but I don't think Tolstoy meant for you to have much. I did enjoy his contrast of her & her brother's affairs (she ends up with sooo many problems from her infidelity, but he keeps messing around while his wife has all the anguish).

    I did have much sympathy for Edna in The Awakening though. That's another good NF read.

    OMG, did all of us take comp lit in school? LOL

    At Heart and Orange ^^ that's exactly why NFs should read Madame Bovary! I just thought it was the awesomest example of "discursive" la la la writing ever! I loved how Flaubert could go on for pages just describing the countryside or someone walking down a field. I wish I were fluent in French to see what it's like in its untranslated glory.

    I liked the Awakening. I know a lot of reviewers at the time painted Edna as "selfish" but I thought Chopin was trying to show how she was forced to make this stand and be courageous, but then, that may be my own post-modern feminist (obvious) read on things.

    Another one:

    Jane Eyre

    But seriously if you are NF, I really recommend "Tipping The Velvet" it'll get your Fi/Fe all tickled.

    Les Miserables by Victor Hugo is pretty epic And other classics like Death of a Salesman, Great Gatsby...

    I despise Twilight.

    Catcher in the Rye. It's a classic, but every young NF should read it. It gives relevency to the "Because I feel like it" aspect of our personality, how we can do things for no particular reason unlike our cousins, those cold blooded NTs.

    Even though Holden is probably an ISFP and not an NF, NFs reading the book will find depth in every thing he does and it will all symbolize something, whatever you make it out to be.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
