Five books for a long stay on a remote island:
  1. The Bible

  2. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

  3. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

  4. The Edge of Sadness by Edwin O'Connor

  5. Modern Times by Paul Johnson

Nice list. I'll try to put my own list too. Now what could be it? I guess 5 will never be enough! :)

Ah, but the real challenge is to keep it to five! A list of ten is fairly comfortable. With five, you keep wondering about the ones that were left off.
