'De ontdekking van de hemel' (translations e.g.: 'The Discovery of Heaven', 'Die Entdeckung des Himmels', 'El descubrimiento del cielo', 'La découverte du ciel') - Harry Mulish. Best novel by a Dutch language author ever. There are more layers in the book than stars in the sky. Science, techology and faith are approached in a sublime way, while the reader snacks on Max, Onno and Ada, the main protagonists. A big fat book, that still gives you a downer - only because you finished it.
