I always thought that "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" is a really good name even though I didn't read it, but the title has a feeling.
I really like the name of Jon Ewo's book "Sola er en feit gud" (something like - "Sun is a coll god"). And of course my favorite name "One hundred years of solitude"... and now I'm thinking... ;)

Oooops, I mean - "Sun is a cool god"...
Now you got me thinking and her we go -
- "Slaughterhouse-Five: Or the Children's Crusade, a Duty-Dance with Death" by Kurt Vonnegut
- "For Esme - with Love and Squalor" by J.D. Salinger
- "Cat on Hot Tin Roof" by Tenessee Williams

" wish I could have my bookcase in front of my eyes"...this is not a name =)

- "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- "Naive. Super" bu Erland Loe
- "Så går en dag ifrån vårt liv och kommer aldrig åter" by Jonas Gardell
- "The fatal eggs" by Mikhail Bulgakov
- "Zeit zu leben und Zeit zu sterben" ("Time to love and time to die") by Erich Maria Remarque

... ok, now I'm thinking that I want to read!!! all of them again =)
But better I'll go to sleep but I'm sure it is a lot left I have to write. And now I'll always look for a nice name whenever I'll get to a bookstore =)

And one for know, then we'll see =)
and there is a story behind it -
There is a book by E.M. Remarque again and it has two names and I love them both - "Geborgtes Leben" (Borrowed Life) or "Der Himmel kennt keine Günstlinge" (Heaven Has No Favorites). Ok, maybe second is better, just when I read it was the first name in russian =)
Noooow, I'm going to sleep =)
