What is your favorite book? Why?

My favorite book is Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I like it because, as accurs in Brothers Karamazov and other books of the author, the psychological side of the character is shown.

Wow, real good books.

Crime and Punishment has been my favorite book for a while. I think it's incredible that a novel written in the 19th century may contain so many aspects of a nowaday's human being. I think that extreme ideologism (as to justify a killing) and alienation are still so current, so up-to-date, in today's Europe.  The way his mind starts to play tricks to him after he kills the old woman, the redemption he finally finds in his punishment... that's too much. I have to read it again, sooner or later.
I began reading "The Idiot", another powerful book, but I had to stop, reading it was too frustrating for me. Kind of too cruel.
I live for Sci-Fi and one of my favourite books is certainly "The Divine Intervention", by Philip K.Dick.
