Akunin "Turkish Gambit"


If you like to read detective prose, this book is for you. Broken-hearted Fandorin ( the main hero) has gone to the front ( the russo-turkish war) in an attempt to forget his sorrow. Captured by the Turks, he wins his freedom in a game of backgammon....
Witty and thrilling novel!!!

Cunningham "The Hours"


M.Cunningham (winner of the Pulitzer prize) has created something original. "The Hours" is the story of three women: Clarissa, who one New York morning goes about planning a party in honor of a beloved friend; Laura, who in 1950s Los Angeles suburb begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home, Virginia Woolf, who begins to write her novels. By the end the stories come together. Wonderful smart prose!!!

Leiden des jungen Werthers

Das Buch hat mir gefallen, weil es nicht sehr schlecht ist und eines der bekanntesten Buches Goethes. Das Buch ist psychologisch und romantik. Aber ich mochte es einmals in ukrainisch lesen um Details zu verstehen. Lena

Emma Jane Austen




I’ve read a book “Emma” by Jane Austen. It is a romantic novel about a girl, who was fond of making profitable matches. The language of the book is expressive and is rich in various stylistic turns, so the book is rather difficult to read.
