What is the best book you have read so far this year?


The best book I have read this year is, "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov. I had always heard it was a classic, though controversial. In my opinion, the writing was absolutely brilliant. So, tell me about you're best read in the first half of 13.

    Interesting; I just ordered his new novel, "Ocean at the end of the lane" today. Many in a writers group I'm in say it is the best book they have read this year. I will check yours out.

    I plan on reading Billy's book, but you know how it is. I have read several of Koontz books.

    King is my favorite author, and I have yet to read 11/22/63, so I will put that one on my list. I love roman history and have read of Augustus in the past , so I may have to give this one a whirl as well.

    The Age of Innocence is a classic and a Pulitzer prize winner, so if The Innocents can stand up to that, it must be a great read indeed.

    The Shack is listed as one of Amazons best books of the year. I will definitely be looking into that one. I hope life is getting better for you sweety. Hang in there.

    I hope it turns out well. The ending can break a very good novel.

    Its not that good. you'll know when you read the other two books. Indian writers are just armatures, read Dan Brown, Stephan King and other western writers.
