    Timeline is a good book, or Saknad if you know Swedish. Timeline the book is much better than Timeline movie.

    The 49 Steps, Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, terry pratchet's discworld novels, 1984, day of the triffids... too many to choose from!

    If you want a classic novel that would be appropriate for reading in English, try Day of the Triffids, it's an old sci-fi book with an excellent plot! It has one boring chapter near the beginning explaining some history, but the rest is very interesting, and an excellent read!
