Childhood’s End by Arthur C Clark

Unique for its combination of elements, Childhood's End is arguably Arthur C. Clarke's finest piece of writing (he mentioned that it was his own favorite.) Childhood's End pushes beyond the usual space-being thriller by successfully questioning the purpose and relevance of life itself; plus, it's short enough to read in a night or two!

The Periodic Table is a collection of autobiographical stories of Primo Levi's extraordinary yet simple life.
