Books and Other Thoughts

For Readers

Here are five of my favorite novels.  Let me know if you agree!

A Prayer for Owen Meany, by John Irving.
A testament to the power of faith.  And funny, too.

Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen.
I haven’t seen the movie, because I can’t imagine that it will be as good as the book.

Still Life, by Louise Penny.
The first in her mystery series featuring Chief Inspector Gamache, it’s the book that introduced me to her writing, which is fabulous.

Odds Against, by Dick Francis.
Dick Francis wrote interior monologue better than anyone.  This particular book is my favorite because it’s the first featuring Sid Halley.

Shogun, by James Clavell.
An oldie but goodie, with a great description of a culture clash that demanded people either adapt or die.
