State one awesome and one shitty book you read or tried to read based on /lit/'s recommendation.
Bonus points for obscure works and restrain in trollage.

Some frenchanon recommended it years ago and it's now one of my favourite books. Light adventure with amazing descriptions.
de Bello Gallico
I love historical work, even more if it's 'original', but I just couldn't get into this one.
