"The Radetzky March" is generally considered to be masterpiece. Joseph Roth has written a beautiful, complex novel with humour and tragic irony.

What really made this book important is the second part, after college and after Blaine had done military service during World War I in France.
"This side of paradise" is also autobiographical novel.

What I liked best was Matthiessen's writing style, it’s as poetry in a prose. His language and imagery are extraordinary. This is a book not to be missed.

Hillenbrand is a wonderful storyteller with a graceful style, she writes the story with a funny, unique tone.
Seabiscuit is about one of the most famous American racehorses, who ran during the 1930's. He was a symbol of hope for many. In addition, Hillenbrand tells the amazing stories of his jockey,trainer, and owner.
I would recommend this for anyone who has ever been interested in horses or racing, anyone who enjoys reading about American history.

Sebold’s writing style is almost prosaic. It is simple, direct, but with nuances and subtleties that reveal hidden meanings and underlying emotions. There are also moments of dark humor in the reading, a relief when raw emotions and graphic images captivate the story. As with her other American “#1 National Best Seller,” The Lovely Bones, Sebold leaves us thinking about The Almost Moon experience long after the last page is turned.

the world of deep, funny, and dangerous women and the men who love them.
Once you meet Gilchrist’s characters, you want to know them better.
With each introduction of a character, author showes the humorous and serious side of them.
I really enjoyed reading this book to find out what was going to happen next.
This book was very exciting, funny and wise.
A funny novel!

Jo Becker is a successful veterinarian, with a good marriage, lovely children and a beautiful home. One day, however, someone walks in and her past comes back to haunt her, the past that she tries to escape for many years. Miller's novel moves back and forth between Jo's present life and her past.
The story is interesting and made it difficult for me to put down the book once I picked it up.

Peter Pan is the boy who wants never to grow old. This is the story of some of his adventures while on the island of Neverland, this wonderful island of imagination and adventure.
He and his friends have many adventures involving pirates, Indians and mermaids. They fight pirates, they can fly, they magically have food to eat and they get to run around with real swords and weapons! There are no rules, no chores to do, there is time for everything in a life free of cares and hardships.

The characters you first met as children are all grown up, have children and grandchildren of their own, and each is given their own drama. The development of each character was brilliantly done. I felt like I knew the family personally.
These books are a wonderful read.

What really impresses about the book is jazz, magical world of improvisation and creation. The most great aspect of this book is the historical picture of the jazz scene. Rafi Zabor, a longtime jazz journalist and drummer, writes about music with a passion and inspiration.If you play jazz, or love jazz, or know a jazzer read this book!!!

Holly knows enough about Guarini and his reputation, to accept the job, but when one of Guarini's assistants is killed during a training session, things really start to go out of control...

Written with humor.

A wounded soldier in the Civil War returns home to Cold Mountain and to Ada, the woman he loved there years before. Ada tries to revive her father's farm and learns to survive in this world.
"Cold Mountain" is a beautifully written novel about two people who struggle to survive in the Civil War, hope to reunite and make some kind of a future for themselves despite the many hardships they have faced.
Truly a good read.

It begins with Una as a little girl and her journey from Kentucky to Nantucket where her mother sends her to live with her aunt and where she meets two young men who change her life forever. Her story is not an easy one, but i loved Una's strong character.
"Ahab's Wife" is one of the best contemporary novels i have read in years.

"Detection Unlimited" was an enjoyable mystery with a number of twists and turns in the plot kept me interested to the end.
Sampson Warrenby was discovered by his anxious niece, Mavis, under an oak tree with a bullet through his brain. Mavis was one of the ten people in the village who disliked him. Only Chief Inspector Hemingway could uncover the murder.
I think it's London's greatest novel, which tells the tale of Buck. He is a heroic dog who lives in his own world and he lives by his own rules until he is stolen and shipped off to Alaska, where he is sold as a sled dog. In Alaska he begins to understand the brutal ways of the wild and faces a choice between living in man's world and returning to nature.
A wonderful tale of courage!
