Jane Eyre (Collector's Library)
"One of those books that simply changed the face of literature forever. If you had to read it in school and didn't like it, give it a go as an adult. An asbolute masterpiece."

In the Empire of Genghis Khan: A Journey Among Nomads
"One of the most simply stated and unpretencious travel books it's ever been my pleasure to read. It takes you for a wonderful ride, and isn't the slightest bit smug about it. A Wonderful read."
Life Of Pi
"Read it - it's as good as everyone says it is. I went into this book not knowing what to expect and found myself calling in sick to work the next day to finish it."
The Bookseller Of Kabul
"I was astonished by the clever honesty of this book - no where does it push you towards any opinion. You have no doubt how the author some times feels, but this is purely observatory, a Great read."
Mother Tongue: The English Language
"Is it really possible to read a book that is practically a text about the English language, and laugh all the way through? This book proves you can, in fine style. Every page is delicious."
The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail
"Hoever contraversial the topic, this book is clean and concise in it's observations and mind bendingly packed with historical information. I read it with the enthusiasm of a detective story."
The Poisonwood Bible

The Dragonbone Chair: Memory, Sorrow and Thorne Series: Book One (Memory, Sorrow & Thorn)
"Another near perfect work of fiction. This series belies all that you may have thought about fantasy fiction. Stunningly written, beautifully crafted - rarely have I been so involved with an outcome"
Seabiscuit: The True Story of Three Men and a Racehorse
"What a pleasant surprise! I started this expecting a cheaply written story 'from screenplay' and found myself in a beautifully written story I couldn't get enough of."
Misery (King Classics)

The Old Man and the Sea
