Don't get me started on that one!
A few pop into mind:
1 and 3 on that list.
The Tin Drum by GÃ¼nter Grass
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu (Written around 1000 AD)
Not Before Sundown by Johanna Sinisalo
A guess I must explain the last one a bit, since it's a Finnish book:
â€˜A wily thriller-fantasyâ€™ â€” New York Times
â€˜A punk version of The Hobbitâ€™ â€” USA Today
â€˜Imaginative and engaging . . . ingeniously constructed and brightly accomplishedâ€™ â€” Washington Post
The story tells about an angelically good looking gay photographer called Mikael, who one evening finds a troll child and takes him in, but who captures who? In the world of the book trolls are a normal, though endangered, part of Scandinavian fauna, besides that the world is just like ours.The themes are forbidden dark feelings (not meaning the gay part), human exploitation of nature, and how nature might just strike back some day. The language is very easily accessible, though the book is deep.
The book won the 2005 James Tiptree Jr. Award in the USA.
