Good books/novels written in German language (learner)?
I'm currently learning German language and I'm just wondering if there are any good books out there that are written in German language, which is not too easy or too hard for a learner? Thank you!
@Lili: Thank you!

There are also "easy readers" - books written specifically for language learners, with annotations and some grammar exercises. Many of them are crime stories or romances, but you can also get famous works of German literature such as Goethe's Faust or Kafka's Metamorphosis rewritten in such a way that a language learner can understand them. They come in all levels - A1 (the beginner level) to C2 (near-native speaker). Personally, I like the books published by Hueber best, but there are many other publishers.
For the A1-C2 levels, see also:

Many children's books are actually quite difficult to read for a learner of the language they are in. That's because even small children have quite a large vocabulary, know the the various moods and tenses, both active and passive, etc.

When I first studied German, we read "Emil und die Detektive," by Erich Kastner. It was available in a paperback edition that I still have.
It's really a story for children or early adolescents (Walt Disney once made a movie of it), but it's good for beginners studying German.
