Catherine Cookson “The Black Velvet Gown”




The novel is well-known and was filmed. The author tells us about the life story of a young girl. Her mother was a widow and had no money to live on. She had to go to a poor devastated village to work as a housekeeper. The owner of the mansion, being a former professor, liked the family and he wrote his will according to which a young girl inherited everything, but she had to work in a neighboring estate as a laundry girl. At first the main heroine was in despair but she had even a slightest notion of what wonderful events expect for her in future.
The novel is easy to read and I enjoyed it very much. I recommend you to read it.

Patricia Cornwell «Hornet’s Nest»

It is a bestseller. This is my second book. I read «Cruel and unusual» by this author too. Patricia Cornwell knew how to write a good book, which you can read for several days. The main hero of «Hornet’s nest» wants to be a policeman like his father and that’s why he helps police. Also in this book we can see love-line. Sometimes it’s very fanny and sometimes it’s sad. I have read this book for one breathe and have many bright emotions.

It is a detective novel.
This book is about young man, who liked a girl, who lived opposite him.
This boy was very strange, because he stolen her and wanted her being always with him.
I like this book, cause it is very simple to read and very interesting. If you like mystic stories, my advice is to read this book.

Bram Stocker “The Sorrows of Satan”

The story told from the first person Jeffrey Tempster. He is a writer and he is very poor. No publishing house wanted to publish his literature works. He had to address himself to his best friend who lived in other country. His friend answered him and told him he had an acquaintance that was ready to help him. Jeffrey only had to wait for this man to come.
Having read this novel I was impressed. In this novel we can see the situation when money puts the problem of choice before each man: whether he would become rich and powerful and lose his heart or he would remain poor but would possess all necessary inner qualities and spiritual wealth.

Andrew M. Greeley “September Song”

Frankly speaking I’ve found nothing special about this book. It is a novel, that contains a lot of political issues and I can’t say I’ve got much pleasure while reading it. It seemed to be rather boring here and there though it was easy to read.

Muriel Spark “Novels”

It’s a very interesting book. It can help all people who want to start to study English at home. Stories are attractive, fantastic and amazing. Translating after all sentences helps us to remember new words.
And, so, we can study English every day, even without a teacher. So, you should read this book.

Ethan Hawke “The Hottest State”

A tender and emotionally deep novel. Very easy to read. For sure you’ll enjoy it. The book tells the story of a young girl who fell in love. The book is considered to be autobiographical in some way.

Jane Austen “Pride and Prejudice”


Charming!
Delightful!
Amazing!

The book is considered to be one of the best novels and belongs to classical literature. It is very popular among youth and people of elder generations and the novel was filmed few times.
Beyond any doubts the story of two sisters, who despised any display of pride and longed to get married only when falling in love, deserves the highest praise.
It is easy and relaxing.
While reading it you feel like your own dreams come true, though it is not always so in real life. The happy ending of the novel satisfy the reader’s expectations. Someone may find it commonplace but I guess it’ll fit those people who are tired of cruelty and violence.
I have already read few novels by Jane Austen and I’d like to read some more.
