"One of the finest books ever written, Ishiguro's chameleon writing style perfectly crafts the heartbreaking years of an aged butler - you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between autobiography."
"Kundera's work is so powerful that translation doesn't harm it - a fantastic story on the eccentricities and nuances of love. Don't let the 'bestseller' turn you off, it's a rare breed of literature."
"Burgess displays the full-use of the English language, and the human mind's nature to adapt to varying tongues. The first few pages might turn you off, but by halfway through, you're speaking Nadsat."
"Clarke's post-war sci-fi masterpiece is a novel that will never age until we as a species age. Questioning ideas of peace, mythology and evolution, the book should up there amongst the spiritual greats."
"De Botton's insightful literary journey through "In Search of Lost Time" not only places the author's philosophies in the context of your own life, but saves you the trouble of reading Proust's 2000-page tome."
