What are some good high fantasy books?
I've read the Drizzt trilogy, LOTR, and I'm starting Dragonlance, but from what I've gathered from critic sites and forums, these and most high fantasy books are seen as mediocre at best.
I don't read much outside of studying, so I can't say my taste is very developed. What are some books I could read to give myself a better taste of good /lit/erature?
Keeping in mind that I prefer the D&D and high fantasy settings.

Hi /lit/, quick question. I've never read any Charles Dickens novel, but right now I can choose between getting Great Expectations or Oliver Twist for really cheap. Which one should I get and read first?
Also, I don't know much about him, was he a leftist, socialist, etc? Or is he pretty much apolitical?

What's the best Mein Kampf translation out there?
Sadly, I can't read the German version (I presume it's gonna be highly censured anyways).
I heard about an official Nazi translation that got recently published a few years ago, is it any good, or the best?
So far people recommended me the Murphy one, but some parts and different and I read that he changed his mind in the latter years, probably omitting some parts, or changing them.
Am I better learning German and reading an unedited copy?

Well, /lit/, I took your word for it and read this.
What the fuck. This book is terrible. It's barely concealed author-insert Mary Sue adolescent wish-fulfillment. I've heard the defense: "Oh, you're not supposed to like him! That's why he lost!", etc., but I don't buy it.
tl;dr, I was disappointed and I'm looking for some good fantasy fiction. I know, it doesn't exist, etc., post up your best Tolkien-clones.
Looking for a Story

Hey /lit/, I'm looking for a fairly short story, and I'm fairly certain the author is of Asian decent. I remember reading it a few months ago on the interwebs. It's about two people that believe themselves to be strangers, but are actually one another's perfect match. There may have been some past life stuff. It's a fairly sad tale. I've been trying to Google it to no avail. Any help would be awesome. I'm not expecting much, but if anyone by some slight chance knows what I'm talking about, I'd be really grateful.
