Hard Choices

Hard Choices is a prosaic book, but still, it is an amazing story.


The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles: A Novel

A good read beach read perhaps but of course there are better things to read on the beach.


The Farm

The main plot of The Farm is ultimately less compelling than the roiling emotions that fill every page.


Bad English: A History of Linguistic Aggravation

In “Bad English,” Ammon Shea wastes no time challenging widely held beliefs about just what English is bad.


The Rise & Fall of Great Powers

The richness of this book is more apparent once the reading is over.


The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts is grotesque and grimly hopeful by turns, underscored by lovingly detailed infection in both metaphorical and very literal terms.


I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You

The not-terribly-sharp humor is more enjoyable than the predictable plot shot through with sentimentality.


In Paradise: A Novel

In Paradise is powerfully lyrical and atmospheric, though perhaps inevitably the Arendtian questions at its heart remain, in the end, imperfectly answered.


Another Great Day at Sea: Life Aboard the USS George H.W. Bush

Written in Dyer’s elegant, playful style, the book is made up of 45 short chapters, most of them just a few pages long.


The Bees

Paull’s prose envelops the senses just as the sounds and smells of the hive hypnotise the bees, drenching her readers with nectar and honey, then switching the pace to depict frenetic, spiralling flights.


Brazil: The Troubled Rise of a Global Power

Reid rises above most criticisms of the ruling leftist Workers’ party, in power since 2002, to suggest the need to remake the whole Brazilian model in place since the return to democracy.


Eyrie

While not his best, this is another fine novel from Winton.


Otherbound

Fantastic twists, a great premise, love, growth and a beautiful romance.


Summer House with Swimming Pool

It is quite simply a brilliant piece of literary fiction.


China Dolls

China Dolls is the type of novel that will make readers rage with frustration at the ignorance and incivility with which past generations treated other cultures.


Reckless Disregard: A Parker Stern Novel

Rotstein's series is perfect for fans who enjoy darker thrillers, whether they be of the legal vein or not


The Hurricane Sisters

The Hurricane Sisters definitely hit the spot!
