I absolutely loved "Sarah's Key." It's about a Jewish family who is taken to Aushwitz by the French police and the girl in the story locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the house and tells him to stay quiet and she will come back for him. The story is all about her attempt to escape the camp and get back and save her brother. It's an amazing read! "To kill a Mockingbrid" is also one of my favorites, as is "The Help", Any Mitch Albom book but i especially love his latest "The Timekeeper" and "Tuesdays with Morrie" Let me know if you get a chance to read any of these and what you thought. I'm an avid reader and read all the time.
If you enjoy Murder Mystery, with a hint of the Paranormal, police investigation where the hero is not the smartest kid on the block and needs the help of a brilliant woman then may I suggest the Inner Space triogy from your truly !
You can even read the first chapters of all three right here on Hub Pages.
Am currently reading 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill. i need not dilute the worth of this book but am sure the title of the book will drive you to the nearest book store.Anyway, in a nutshell, if you are seeking to make it big in the financial arena, this is your financial bible. Napoleon Hill does deliver on this one.
This is a biased answer. Try 'Reality Hubpages'. It is not complete, yet fresh since a week or so anyway. The epilogue, forward, and table of contents remain to be completed. The chapters are completed and there are five.
It offers a puzzle, a riddle, and there is as in gaming an Easter Egg too. It is of learning while learning simultaneously. It cost only time and some say that is free while others say expensive. A choice it seems. It is published locally and not far away for most who know of mice, clicks and not looking for cheese.
Or, maybe these other recommendations 'The Four Loves' or 'The Problem of Pain' for intense reading offered by C.S. Lewis. Maybe the 'Silmarillion' or 'The Book of Lost Tales' by J.R.R. Tolkien. 'War in Heaven' and 'Shadows of Ecstasy' by Charles Williams are odd and interesting both. A great book of interest by Mark Twain is EVE'S DIARY. In his language if'n I remember rightly it twas banned near on one hundred years or seems so . . . not for words, yet the illustration(s). That book is available for free too and a fast read at Gutenberg Project http://www.gutenberg.org/files/8525/8525-h/8525-h.htm
"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" The worlds only 5 part trilogy (a 6th part was finished and added after Douglas Addams died) Read the story then go back and read between the lines. Note* it also gives the answer to the ultimate question, a big bonus !!
Note* stick to the book/s none of the radio or movies were any good.
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. Its about a runner named Louis Zamperini who would have probably been the first man to run under a 4 minute mile. He becomes part of the Air Force during World War 2. His plane malfunctions and he spends the longest time ever stranded on an inflatable raft. He is then captured by the Japanese and spends several more months in a Japanese POW camp before being freed at the end of the war. The story is 100% true as well- its an amazing book. I would also recommend The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak, its one of the best holocaust books ever written.
One of my favorite nonfiction books is Frames of Learning: Revelation Theory of Learning. The ISBN is 978-1-4652-0882-8. It can be ordered online through Amazon or from this URL: www.kendallhunt.com/connor It is available in e-book or hardcopy. My favorite fiction would be Walden by Henry David Thoreau...
Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind written by V.S. Ramachandran. Vilayanur Subramanian Ramachandran (born 1951) is a neuroscientist known for his work in the fields of behavioral neurology and visual psychophysics. He is the Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition, and is currently a Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Neurosciences Graduate Program at the University of California, San Diego. Ramachandran is noted for his use of experimental methods that rely relatively little on complex technologies such as neuroimaging.He has been called "The Marco Polo of neuroscience" by Richard Dawkins and "the modern Paul Broca" by Eric Kandel. In 1997 Newsweek named him a member of "The Century Club", one of the "hundred most prominent people to watch" in the 21st century. the book is published by Sandra Blakeslee and Oliver Sacks (Aug 18, 1999). The book is available at Amazon shopping.
Two books: 1Q84 and Poisonwood Bible. I don't think you would forget either one of them. First, I would recommend Poisonwood Bible (by Barbara Kingsolver). It is about a family that goes to the Congo as missionaries. The other book is a 3-book series that is difficult to describe, it is a love story with Alice in Wonderland and 1984 Orwellian overtones.
I have done reviews of both of these on HubPages so you can scan them to see if they are of interest to you. I have also enjoyed the 5-book series that is being used to make the Game of Thrones series on HBO - the writer still hasn't finished this monumental work.
If you can think of a movie you have seen that was touching, tragic and unforgettable, see if it came out as a book first. The books are always better than the movie. Eat, Pray, Love was fantastic as was Gone with the Wind.
Let's see. Touching? as in loving, caring and acts of compassion. Tragic? lost of love ones, betrayal. Unforgettable? Leaves a lasting image in your brain, provides lessons and things that can change your life... Sounds like the Bible to me.
