3. "Prophetic Sisters", Terry Pratchett

One of the brightest examples of humorous fantasy, which came from the pen of a recognized genius of this genre. The story of the three witches from the Discworld cycle is a reinterpretation of Shakespeare's Macbeth and tells about a coup d'etat in a small kingdom and the search for the true heir to the throne. Humor is evident in every line here, and the book itself is perfect for weekends and recreation.

4. "Monday begins on Saturday", Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

The cult novel by the Strugatsky brothers, which is rightfully considered a masterpiece of Russian fiction. The book immerses the reader in the adventures of programmer Alexander Privalov, who found himself in the thick of incredible events. In this story, magic is side by side with science, and time machines exist in parallel with a hut on chicken legs. And all this is saturated with caustic satire on the Soviet bureaucracy.

5. "Adventures of the brave soldier Schweik", Yaroslav Hasek

A great satirical novel full of sarcasm and irony — even though it describes the events of the First World War. Armed with his worldly experience and endless optimism, the inimitable protagonist goes to the front. However, the most dangerous thing is not the enemies on the other side, but incompetence, corruption and drunkenness, which the cheerful soldier faces at every step.

6. "Ivan Vasilyevich", Mikhail Bulgakov

Many do not know, but Gaidai's cult comedy is actually an adaptation of Bulgakov's no less iconic play. And although its plot will be familiar to everyone who has watched the film "Ivan Vasilyevich changes his profession" on TV, it does not hurt to enjoy the sparkling humor and magnificent style of the author. Moreover, there are still differences between the everyday life of the 1930s and the 1970s.

Memoirs of the director beloved by more than one generation of viewers, in which he shares details and interesting stories from the filming of "Mimino", "Afoni" and his other films.
