THE MARRIAGE PLOT BY JEFFREY EUGENIDES
I've loved this author(maybe that's a little strong) ever since I read Middlesex (which won the Pulitzer) many years ago.The Marriage Plot is a story about being young, bright and lost. It's a disarming novel about love and discovery..written beautifully.... although a lot of "endless particulars"!!
RULES OF CIVILITY BY AMOR TOWLES
I can't believe this is a first novel for Amor Towles! Rules of Civility is witty and smart with unforgettable characters living in a priviledged world! Set in New York in the late 30's the novel follows three friends through a year of exciting and tragic adventures. Towles is witty and spectacular at descriptions. You are quickly transported to another time and place. Maybe even wanting a Martini immediately!!!
PLEASE LOOK AFTER MOM BY SHIN KYUNG-SOOK
This book may make you gain a new sense of appreciation for everything you took for granted about your mother...or not!!! Great story about family dynamics and relationships. Beautifully written by an eminent Korean author. I really loved this book!
THE INVISIBLE BRIDGE BY JULIE ORRINGER
A first novel and a great achievement! This 600 page epic is a tale of war-torn lovers and survival of the luckiest...heartbreaking and moving..a holocaust page-turner..I couldn't put it down!!
