First volume of the Cazalet saga. Light and pleasant style. A mirror of Victorian society at the gates of the Second World War.

Nutshell | Ian McEwan

A surprising novel, a unique thriller of its kind told by the new Hamlet that a murderous mother carries in her lap. A standing ovation novel.

What would happen if Marx and Darwin met at the end of their lives?
A very human picture of 2 life-loving men who, with their works, distorted religion and society.
A book recommended to all those who want to learn a little more clearly and simply.

Fridameetslucy These books are so special to me I Did all the audiobooks while recovering from a concussion. I‘m now doing a very close read of David copperfield and delighted to see how Dickens shaped Rowling. Plus just discovered that Daniel Radcliffe played the young copperfield when he was 8 years old. 4mo

In this novel, Dostoevsky develops the problem of human duplicity, which has its roots in the tormenting coexistence of a dual nature.

A journey to the roots of hatred, an intense and passionate book, which represented with a lucid clairovoyance the climate of ruthless racism in which the Holocaust matured.
