I’ve read lots of amazing books this year. I’ve already posted my list of favourite books published in 2012, but what about the older ones?
Here are the back-list titles that impressed me the most:
An American classic that deserves more attention. This gripping story is one of the most insightful books about racism I’ve ever read.
True crime doesn’t get better than this.
North Korea is a fascinating country. This book reveals the shocking truth about what life is like for the residents of this oppressed nation.
What would happen if women became rare? This frightening vision of the future deserves to be more widely known.
Morrall has created some of the best dysfunctional characters in literature. This wonderful story is packed with emotion.
What would happen if all the grass died? This scary concept comes to life in this modern classic.
This wonderful Norwegian epic is packed with vivid characters. People who ignore literature in translation are missing out on a fantastic read.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this modern classic. I’m looking forward to trying more Faulks in 2013.
This shocking story about one man’s ordeal during Hurricane Katrina is gripping. I really hope the police have learnt lessons from these horrific events.
A fascinating insight into the canine mind. Essential reading for all dog owners.
