Writers, critics and celebrities come together to write about the books that changed their lives, and suggest books that might change yours


Someone once said that books furnish a room. They also change our lives. We go to books for consolation and companionship, to be transported, moved and entertained, sometimes even to be terrified. The books furnishing our rooms tell the story of our lives and also help us to make sense of them. This is not a work of reference; it doesn't prescribe a canon or tell you how to read. Instead, "1000 Books to Change Your Life" celebrates the transforming power of literature. 50 leading novelists, writers and critics draw the arc of a life lived in books, from birth to death - with Kate Clanchy on motherhood, Ali Smith on reading as a child, and Jonathan Franzen, Jonathan Coe, Nigella Lawson and Sarah Waters on the volumes that changed their lives. This book is a reminder of the difference that books make. Organised around themes inspired by Shakespeare's "Seven Ages of Man", the book ranges from birth to death, taking in topics at all points in between, and covering both fiction and non-fiction, graphic novels as well as literary classics.

Commentaries by Ali Smith, Nigella Lawson, Jonathan Franzen, Sarah Waters, Jonathan Coe, Barney Hoskyns, Amanda Craig and Nicholas Royle, to name a few, are complemented by Top Ten lists chosen by "Time Out's" unrivalled team of critics. Part of the 1,000 series launched with the bestselling 1,000 films to change your life, "1,000 Books" is a similarly inspirational book.

Much of interest- but could have been a lot better 19. Januar 2008
Von Shalom Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book about books has a lot of interesting material in it. It asks writers about books which changed their lives. It presents seven sections from Infancy to Old Age and Death- as outlined in the famous Shakespearean passage on the Ages of Man (Stages of Life). It contains four lead essays for each sections within which various titles are recommended.
Among the lead essays Kate Clanchy writes on the Age of Innocence, Infancy- Adele Geras on Childhood and Telling Tales- Michael Bywater on Old Age.
I found the section on 'life drawing ' or biographical writing by A.C. Grayling interesting. He speaks of why people love biography as a form. He speaks of the story element, the capacity to follow the stages of a life and learn from it, the gossip element which he does not look down on. He has a special interest in the biographies of philosophers and says that there are a very few outstanding ones, citing two on Wittgenstein one by Ray Monk.
The chapter on Adulthood has a section devoted to Manhood. And there is a survey of war- writing and list of recommended titles. Among those titles is Michael Herr's 'Dispatches' which is one of the most disturbing and difficult but I suspect truest pictures of war ever given. The writing of another great war- correspondent Vassily Grossman is also on the list.
There is a section on books about Working which maintains that this is one of the great ignored subjects of Literature. Dickens it is said never really wrote about people actually at their work.
The book often seems insular with a bit too much British focus on the British. Many of the readers selected to give their response give responses which to my mind are most often rather unexciting.
The work has a helpful index of the thousand titles recommended. However within the chapters themselves the small summaries of the works are often poor and inadequate.
This work is a kind of dip-in and skim and get what you can work.
Again there is much of interest in it but I felt it could have been done in a much deeper and comprehensive way.

Great airline book. 2. Mai 2009
Von Bruce Oksol - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Softcover, light, easy-to-pack, and easy-to-carry. Even if you are a career reader put this in your carry-on. You will feel good seeing the books discussed that you have already read (this validates your reading program) and it might point out books you've overlooked. Much, much easier to carry than "1000 Books You Must Read Before You Die." In addition, the essays are just that: essays. Pick it up at a discount book store for about $8.50; about $11.50 at Amazon.com.

This is Time Out LONDON 15. Mai 2009
Von Anne Salazar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I love Time Out New York, and although I know there are several editions of Time Out, I didn't realize this books was Time Out LONDON until I sat down to look through it. It is DEFINITELY British, and not American. There are a lot of interesting books, authors, etc. noted, and I do love a lot of English literature, but I was definitely thinking this was a US book and was frankly disconcerted that it was not. The cover of the book I have is different, too, and I should have realized something was up when I didn't recognize most of the authors noted on the front cover. I guess there is only this London edition, since the one I have (and it IS British) has the same ISBN number.
