I read Perfume by Patrick Suskind years and years ago and while it was dark and disturbing I enjoyed it very much and have re-read it here and there throughout the years. I definately recommend it!

I've been wanting to read it for a really long time - it's one I actually have to buy though, I don't own it, so it won't be among the first ones that I read!
