There are almost twice as many men as females on the list: 47 to 24, but the best $10 for these numbers, with five feminine authors on just two males: Most of the top 10 books were published in the nineteenth and only two of them: the first and the second:

Remarque's novel, one of the best-known books on the First World war, recounts the history of the Nazi regime's warrior Paul Bäumer, who gave the European struggles between 1914 and 1918 a humanitarian dimension.

This novel zoomed into the everyday lives of a personal military man and described both the power of struggle and the everyday nature of frontline living.

Sebald's forth and last novel before his early deaths in a 2001 automobile accident is a provocative but undoubtedly worthwhile one.

The novel by Fontane, published at the end of the nineteenth centuary, recounts the history of a way of living that was also on its way out with the reunification of Germany and its swift modernization.
One of the great masterworks of realism in Germany, this moving work is a wonderful but dramatic tale of two men trapped in the fetters of the community.
