Parzival (maxibob) | 7 comments Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein is a beautifully written novel that is written as a “confession” of a captured English Scottish spy during WWII. This is a must read for anyone who likes suspenseful WWII books.

Parzival (maxibob) | 7 comments Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico is a beautiful tale of kindness and compassion that follows Mrs. Harris on her quest to buy herself a Dior dress in Paris, no matter what difficulties arise. A great book for all readers.

Parzival (maxibob) | 7 comments Noah's Child by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt is a heartwarming story about human kindness during WWII that shows the workings of one of the many orphanages in Belgium that took in Jewish children. This is a must-read for compassionate souls.

Hitchhiking to Germany with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

Parzival (maxibob) | 7 comments Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer follows the story of young Oscar Schell who after his father's death finds a key hidden in his dad's room. Throughout the story, we delve into the past and see Oscar's grandfather in Dresden, Germany, writing to his unborn son. This story requires commitment to reach the end, but it's worth it.

Flying home to USA with Contain by Saul W. Tanpepper

Parzival (maxibob) | 7 comments Contain by Saul W. Tanpepper is a post-apocalyptic novel in which there is an extremely contagious disease that is transmitted by touch. A group of thirty people is locked in a bunker and problems are beginning to occur. It looks a lot like sabotage and Finn takes it upon himself to find the cause of these strange occurrences.

How it relates to my return home? The author is an American, he currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
