The Rise and Fall of Great Powers by Tom Rachman
The Rise and Fall of Great Powers

barbjg, October 20, 2014

Loved this book- Rachman's characters are believable and (mostly) likeable. An addictive storyline keeps you reading long past what's good for you. A must-read.

TransAtlantic by Colum McCann

barbjg, October 29, 2013

To say I enjoyed it would be a vast understatement- his prose is beautiful, conjuring the moments, portraying them perfectly. The story is intriguing and flows naturally. I so loved this book that upon finishing it I actually cried "no" when finding no more pages to turn! I'm off to get a copy McCann's earlier book today.
