Down Under by Bill Bryson

A good companion for my trip in Australia, as all Bryson's books or at least the ones I've read, funny sometimes, but as I had a guide during the trip, I would say, in order to keep his thorough description style, he could've updated his research as ...more

I chose this book for the cover but must admit that when the story revolved around the death penalty, my mood changed and it was a bit depressing to read it through; later, the story line would focus more on the wrong conviction but there I thought i ...more

Les Échelles du Levant by Amin Maalouf

In spite of being short, the monologue is presented in such a way that you will quickly identify the personalities of the characters, learn about their motivations for their decisions and feel you somehow know them. The tale takes you through an inte ...more

At first glance, this is the story of a prosperous businessman whose devotion to his two heartless daughters literally led him to ruin; fortunately, there is more than that and the richness of some of the characters makes the plot above secondary. Th ...more

I loved it, books about art that help you make up for your lack of knowledge on this area are a must for me and to start with, that was a great choice of genre. The good and bad characters are all fully developed and they accompany the murderous stea ...more

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

I loved the cover and every bit that King writes is pleasurable, entertaining and well worth reading. I expected to find a real sequel of the Shining. But although some characters are kept and the basic story continues as you learn what happened to D ...more

Cornwalls writing is great, making both characters and the story so real. I couldnt put it down as it was entertaining from the first pages and kept the suspense till the very end. Those topics presented in epics were there: heroic wars, betrayal, in ...more

I am not very fond of police thrillers but this one made it for me after some chapters read. The writing style is great and the pace too. An imaginary world with Hitlers triumph, in which one wonders what wouldve happened in our everyday lives, and y ...more
