It's an inspiring journey of transformation, from a nine year old harrowing holocaust survival to triumph in foreign lands. Take this odyssey and marvel at a remarkable human spirit.This is a compelling story of a Holocaust survivor".

I would love to get a copy of the book to present to my bookclub. We are a group of 12 in suburban Philadelphia and the group does not have much exposure to the Holocaust and Jewish people in general. I have studied the Holocaust for many years and always try to add a relevant book when we make our selections for the year. Last year I had to fight to get them to read "The Book Thief" and afterwards they said they were so happy that they did. You can contact me at roz137@comcast.net. Thank you

Kathy The Wife's Tale: A Novel The Wife's Tale A Novel by Lori Lansens by Lori Lansens was published in February 2010, so I'm not sure why it comes up as "not published in 2010." I know that books move publication dates, so perhaps it was scheduled earlier? It was a favorite read of mine, anyway.

Bettie The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell has Man Booker Prize Winner written all over it!

There was a geezer shouting off on the wireless during the whitbread Costa shortlist discussion that neither The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell or Solar by Ian McEwan were mentioned in Costa or Booker when they are patently the best books of 2010. (there was a hattip to Trespass by Rose Tremain also)


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Is there anything on this list that isn't in an urban fantasy series? Ugh


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yes. Mystery and historical fiction are also popular.

MaiaB113 I've read two of the top 100 books. Room, and Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. Both are twelve thousand times better than the top ten on this list. I mean, SERIOUSLY. Vampire Academy?? You've got to be kidding me.

I don't think it's "100 best" as much as "100 most popular".. common mistake, I suppose.
