Come with Me to Babylon
Come with Me to Babylon

mgdallas, May 29, 2009

For anyone who likes historical fiction, this is a great read. The author captures the need to emigrate because of political and economic realities, the struggles to find one's place in a new world, and the selling of one's soul for financial security. A wonderful book.

What a great sea story! The book is short, but spares the reader none when it comes to a rescue effort in stormy seas.

Disquiet (Penguin Original) by Julia Leigh
Disquiet (Penguin Original)

mgdallas, May 5, 2009

Mercilessly short, when there are so many 600-700 page novels out there. The size of the manuscript does not cheat the reader of any essential details. The story reflects the emotional disconnection within some families, and the consequences that can result.

Fatelessness by Imre Kertesz
Fatelessness

mgdallas, May 5, 2009

I picked up this book under the title, Fateless, in the UK. It's an intriguing novel about the experience of a Jewish Hungarian teenager who is taken to Nazi concentration camps. When he becomes sick, he receives medical treatment, and he survives to return home. This outcome is very different from most of the Holocaust stories I have read, thus, I found this book to be a fascinating twist on a difficult time in our history.

City of Thieves by David Benioff
City of Thieves

mgdallas, May 1, 2009

This book covers almost every human twist of fate and dilemma, except maybe childbirth. Benioff accomplishes this with humor, horror, and pathos. A great read!
