READING GROUP TOP PICKS FROM 2018
Our Reading Groups voted for their favourite books of the year (featuring both Reading Group selections and others), and these are their top three.
1. A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW by AMOR TOWLES PB $19.99
On 21 June, 1922, unrepentant Russian aristocrat, Count Alexander Rostov, is sentenced to indefinite house arrest in an attic room of a Moscow luxury apartment.
2. ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE by GAIL HONEYMAN PB $19.99
We’re dubbing this the psychological Rosie Project. Romance, naturally, but also a wee bit clever.
3. WARLIGHT by MICHAEL ONDAATJE PB $29.99
Peerless prose and unforgettable characters make Ondaatjte one of the finest writers around. No exception here for the author of The English Patient, once again revisiting the ravages of WWII.
