message 1: by elissa (new)

elissa I think some of the best books of the decade have been published for children and teens, but this isn't bad in terms of books for adults.


message 2: by Alana (new)

Alana All four of my favorite books are on here. Well chosen!


message 3: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth I wanted to vote for a few of these books, but unfortunately weren't actually published after 2000.


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

#1 - love it so much!


message 5: by Maria M. (new)

Maria M. Elmvang Removed "House of the Spirits" and "Matilda" from the list as they were definitely not published in the 2000s (not originally anyway). If you see any others that are wrongly categorised (don't have time to go through them all) please don't hesitate to send me a comment and let me know.

Dan I didn't vote for any book that I haven't read.


message 10: by Momo (new)

Momo Do you want the book to be made into a movie? In my view your whole story - the war in Yugoslavia and your experiences in South Africa - are eminently suitable to make a Hollywood movie. In truth the book could have been just about your life in two very difficult countries. The UFO aspect - I, too, was for a while obsessed with wanting contact with UFO's....there are so many 'co-incidences' in what I read in your book...Elizabeth Klarer...I interviewed her twice...similarities aplenty. So dear Momo, just from reading your book I can see why Dr Johan Joubert - he incidentally extracted my beloved little Pomeranian's teeth! - had nothing but praise for you. I feel as though you and I and he know each other - or knew each other in a previous life. All the subjects that interest you, that preoccupy you, are the subjects that fascinate me too. I salute you for writing a book in a language that isn't even your own! Warm regards God bless Jani Juliett Allan --Radio presentor

Hello! I heard you speak on radio this evening and was surprised and pleased to hear someone speak such intelligent, civilised good sense. It was very uplifting and inspiring Whatever you have learned from Other World intelligences, you are bound by conscience and humanity to share it with all who will listen When I was young, I knew an elderly man in California who regularly disappeared from his home and returned days later with "communication" from Other Worlds via ET flying craft. I am sure he was one of the wisest people I've ever met Unfortunately he had developed a taste for the music of Other Worlds and would attempt to reproduce it on various instruments. It was the worst music I have ever heard! I would be interested to know more about the UFOs you spoke of With best wishes Dr Ian Bell "It's never too late to have a happy childhood" (Me, 1996) --Email regarding the author's radio talk show

Hi Carol Thanks for organising the evening. The experience of listening to Momo and then talking to him afterwards when he autographed our book was profound.His message transcended words as the gentleness of his nature has a subtle effect on the senses and one realises that there is a deeper message, in that, through simplicity, love and acceptance of life, we all have the ability to communicate from our realm to other realms. If we can accept that divinity exists within each and every one of us, and that loving gestures reflect the true purpose of our being, all obstacles can be overcome without the pain and suffering to which we constantly expose ourselves. I would like to communicate further with Momo and would appreciate if you could you let me have his e-mail address Regards Issy Lichtenstein --The letter regarding the author's talk show

Emily deleted memoirs of a geisha since it was written in the '90s, you can vote on it on that list!


message 12: by Mari Anne (new)

Mari Anne The Red Tent was also written in the 90's.


message 13: by Mari Anne (new)

Mari Anne Emily are you vettting the list? I found several more that were first published before 2000..

Into Thin Air
White Oleandar
No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

Love two out of the three but won't vote for them since they don't fit the criteria as stated. Was that geeky enough?

Emily Thanks. Have deleted those.

message 17: by Eunice (last edited Jan 08, 2009 02:37PM) (new)

Eunice just a few more that were originally published in the 90's or earlier.

Jeanette Winterson's Written on the Body (1992)
Katherine Dunn's Geek Love: A Novel (1989)
Jose Saramago's Blindness (1995)
Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies (1999)

i actually voted for the Interpreter of Maladies and then realized that it might have not been published 2000 or later.

thank you


message 18: by Logophile (new)

Logophile I'd like to have voted for The Cave by José Saramago, but I'm told it isn't a book of this decade? It was originally published in 2000, and I believe the English translation is copyright 2002.

Aileen
Book Review: Nesohc a new version of Jesus

Few books pack superb insightfulness, precise scientific research, wonderful human characterization, verifiable scientific explanations, unsurpassed argumentative dialogue, outstanding innovative views on the life and works of the most influential man in history "Jesus Christ". If you add a mind boggling plot to top it off, you may get a nanometric idea of the reach and wonder of this masterpiece. The book is a marvelous novel with a new twist on the origin, birth, life, miracles, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus. The novel is very well researched and the plot unfolds in an enjoyable and easy to follow manner which glues you to the book from beginning to end. The protagonists, (Jesus and the disciples), are depicted in a fresh, realistic, humorous and earthly manner befitting of their true nature. The plot, although a personal interpretation of the life of Jesus, is so plausible that it is difficult throw it in the “science fiction” bag. The author presents reasonable alternatives as to the origin of life on earth; the development, nature, and ultimate destination of the human soul; a feasible method for travelling in space, infinitely faster than the speed of light; and many other wonderfully creative insights which provide much fuel for thought.
Although the primary purpose of the book is that of entertainment, the very nature of its content is bound to produce a great deal of introspection in those with an open mind. The author advocates no theories, but merely presents a script which differs from traditional orthodox views. He makes no claim as to the validity of the script, but merely spills a glass which is soaked by the creative and imaginative minds of the readers I highly recommend this book to all audiences. Its fast and easy to follow style will provide many hours of enjoyable and thoughtful entertainment for readers all ages. Its deep philosophical implications make it a worthy mental exercise for analytical individuals interested in philosophy, metaphysics, religion, psychology, and ethics.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable, entertaining, and easy to follow book which provides a banquet for thought.

Booklover I love this book! It is very sad, really, but with a good ending. I hate that the mother favored her sister so much and then Priscilla had to deal with that even during the depression when they had no place to live, really.

Twilight and harry potter aren't overrated, its just that they largely appeal to young people in the same way that the Time travellers wife largely appeals to idiots.

Alexandra Dawes Have just finished reading Guernica by Dave Boling. Not on this list yet.

And it has the correct original publication date. I suspect it was added when it had an incorrect one. Frankly, I'm too tired right now to delete it.

Great idea to make a list of children's and teens books... I love books in that genre and would love to see a list!

Thanks for keeping the list up, Amy. Ann-Marie MacDonald's Fall On Your Knees was also originally published in 1996.

Great list.

Libby James Baldwin, "Giovanni's Room" was published in the 1950's or 1960's. "The Life and Times of Michael K" was written in the 1980's or 1990's.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads If you'll tell me which pages the books in question are on, I'll be happy to remove them.

(Giovanni's Room is 1940, and Michael K won the Booker in 1983.)

Sarah Jane Smith Twilight? Jodi Picoult? These are some of the books that qualify as the best of the decade? Thanks but no thanks.
