The next, Roland and Maud from Byatt's Possession. And then, the love triangle -- do triangles count? -- in Sandor Marai's Embers. (less)

Warlight by Michael Ondaatje

Clear rating
So many WWII era books have come out over the last few years, I didn't think I wanted one more, even as I admire Ondaatje's storytelling. But in a bookshop in Europe with few English-language titles, I picked it up, and only put it down when finished ...more

For anyone who thinks strong, provocative fiction is dying out, has no purpose, and no audience, read Sing, Unburied, Sing. Ward's novel offers a rare reading experience during which one is both troubled -- sometimes horrified -- and fortified. Its f ...more

E.V. Legters and 53 other people liked Jennifer Blankfein's review of Exit West:
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
"First I have to comment on Mohsin Hamid’s unbelievably beautiful, descriptive and unusual prose. He has a special way of painting a picture with words in a sing song way with paragraphs that are a single sentence, multiple phrases connected with c..." Read more of this review »
