James Agee "A death in the family"

I could hardly put this book down. James Agee is a very talented writer. His prose is perfect. It was a very sad book, a touching, tragic and moving story,which will occupy a place in my heart. This book is about the young father's death in a car accident and it's impact on his family. We see a small world of happiness and how guickly it could be destroyed.
If you haven't yet read this book, I highly recommend you do.

Agatha Christie "Death on the Nile"

I think Agatha Christie wrote the best mysteries in the world. If you are looking for a fun, fast mystery with good character development and numerous twists and turns read "Death on the Nile". Poirot travelled on the Nile when a murder of a recently married, beautiful heiress was committed.
Who would want to do such a thing? Read and you will know answer…

Anne Frank "The diary of a young girl"

This is a really good book to read if you want to learn more about World War II, the suffering that the Jews went through during war. Anne and her family went into hiding in a Secret Annexe in a warehouse. Anne was thirteen years old, she never lost hope and dreamed to be a writer or journalist. For two years Anne described in her dairy her feelings and frustrations during these hard times. Her diary ended when she and her family were discovered by the Nazis.
One of the most touching and unforgettable books!

Ken Kesey "One flew over the cuckoo's nest"

This is a very moving story which mades me feel horror, laugh, be shocked while I was reading it. Readers see a group of men living in a psychiatric hospital, each man is there for a different reason, they all need help. In order to escape prison Randle McMurphy decided to spend only six months in hospital and be free. He gets the other men to gamble, breaks the rules. There are many tragic moments in this story.
The ending gave me a lot to think about.
I don't want to retell the plot, you need to experience the story for yourself.
