J. Alexander meint:
I second Jodi Picoult! Great reads, and you really connect with her writing but make sure you are aware that all of her novels are extremely intense.

The Phillip Pullman series, the shadow in the north, ruby in the smoke, tiger in the well are all fantastic reads!

Happy Reading!

Christmas always comes with a good book. And a good read is always a good time spent. Try 'The Board Members" by DeRege Lemma and 'The Shop Keeper' by James D. Best. They're both good and matured mystery novels.
The Board Members (English Edition)

Das ist wirklich ein faszinierendes Buch, aber es wirkt auch ein wenig verstörend - bis heute. Ich kann gar nicht erklären, was mir an dem Buch unheimlich ist!

Kappepaul meint:
'Extremely loud and Incredibly Close' habe ich auch gelesen; ebenso 'Angela's Ashes'. Klar, dass ich mir dann auch 'Cold Mountain' ansehen werde.

BookWeek meint:
****
A nonfiction, compelling story:

It's not only a doctor's medical school education, residency training, and launching into practice that's so demanding, but what may be creeping into the professional's personal life along the way.
This is a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to become a doctor and what can happen once you get there.
Is it worth it?

A Physician's Plight: A Memoir - Professional Success ... Personal Disaster
**********

Reviews:
"Klein demonstrates a toughness and determination that will leave you cheering for her.” M. Graff “Auntie M”, Author, Hyde, NC

“A Physician’s Plight” is an intriguing read that shouldn’t be missed for readers of personal memoirs.
Mary Cowper, Reviewer, The Midwest Book Review

"This book pulls no punches – nothing is sacred, nothing is left out! Anesthesiologist Katherine Klein, MD, gives us “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of her family-of-origin, her marital suffering, and her divorce, which landed her in Family Court and deprived her of participation in much of the lives of her young children."
Josh Grossman, MD, FACP, Col. (ret.), U.S. Army Medical Corps

If you aren't, I hope you'll find on you do enjoy

Jane Doe meint:
I loved 'How to be good' from Nick Hornby. He writes from the perspective of a woman who decides to leave her husband because she's fed up. As it turns out she's not an angel (all her thoughts written out reminded my of so many spats in my house) and doesn't completely give up on him, and he keeps trying 'to be good' as well. In quite surprising ways! Being written by (the man) Nick Hornby it's amazing to discover all his insights into a woman's psyche.
I also like everything by T.C. Boyle, one crazier than the next but all draw you in and don't let you go again.

John Oehler meint:
I would like to recommend my own, recently published mystery/suspense novel, Aphrodesia. It centers on the world of perfumes and tells the story of a perfume student who creates a powerful aphrodisiac, only to become the prime suspect when a knockoff of his creation surfaces as the sole link in a series of passion-driven homicides.

Aphrodesia has received excellent reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Amazon customers (all 5-star). I invite you to read the reviews here: Aphrodesia: A Novel of Suspense

My new novel, Pyramid of the Dead: A Zombie Novel tells another version of how a few hundred Spanish Conquistadors brought down the Incan Empire. Even to this day no one is sure what happened. Using real names, battles and locations my story is a tale of greed and vengeance, black magic and demons with an army raised from the underworld.

The Dancing Boy
Thirty British troops a week are seeking medical help, toll of combat in Afghanistan.
A total of 3,021were diagnosed with `Adjustment disorder' between May 2010 and April 2012.
In places such as the US it is significantly higher.
Symptoms include self harming, drug abuse and anxiety attacks.
This is an account of a man, who to the detriment of his family and personal security refuses point blank to acknowledge these symptoms.

Blinded by the heat, Tom Gillet, a British soldier is dragged back from an IED by Shafiq, a small Afghan boy. Luckily he lost a foot and not his life.
Shafiq wasn't so fortunate. His family was murdered by the Taliban as a warning to those who helped the coalition forces, and he was sold into a child trafficking ring as a dancing boy.
Discharged from the army and on the threshold of PTSD Gillet feels forced to return to Afghanistan to search for the boy in the hope of finding him a better life.
But what he encounters is a world full of shock, betrayal and lies.
Returning home to the UK he finds himself drawn into the horrors of something he never knew existed behind the closed doors of immigrant Britain.

I can recommend you a good book. The author is really new I just heard about her, but her book "Let him go" is really good! Her name is Kaitlyn Felt. The book is based on true events of her own life which makes it really authentic!

Chris Conquer meint:
have a look at The Birthday Party by Chris Conquer. A tragic story. It will make you laugh, cringe and cry. It will also upset you. There is a jewish part that brings out the horror of what happened in simple terms. There's love, hate and murder. Please read it.
