Haunting...that sure describes the feelings left from Edgar Sawtelle.....I think it's time to read it again! there's so much in that novel.

I love the concept created by Catch 22, but it was a struggle to enjoy it as a novel. Long, meaningful, essay.

If it is Edgar Sawtelle then I agree. Great book. Especially since we have raised to incredible Australian Shepherds. They a beauty in motion & loyal beyond belief.

I love anything written by Charles Martin and Unbroken by Laura Hildenbrand

The dogs in the story are probably what sets this great story apart from some others. Almondine stays with me as every dog I have loved and felt kinship with. Greatest character in the book. The Hamlet thing kinda astounded me, but I'm a Shakespeare fan, too, so how much more could I find in one book?

You should read then Pillars of the Earth. Follett's best book!! A saga that just keeps going, so well written and the characters just draw you in.

My all time favorite is "And Ladies of the Club" by Helen Hooven Santmyer, 1984.
Also, " Cold Sassy Tree" by Olive ann Burns and my third favorite was Chesapeake by Michner!. My problem is that my favorite list is over 25 books long now and it is so hard to choose just one. I loved " Cutting for Stone"," The Invisible Bridge" (2011 favorites). So far this year, no new additions to my list! But I believe Fall of Giants, and 'Winter of Storm" are going to take top billing this year!Apologies to Ken Follett for messing up the title of his latest book. I meant "The Winter of the World" only 300 more pages to go and loving it!!

"The Power of One" is a fabulous story. Good to read the book then see the movie!

Better still is "Love in the Time of Cholera ("Amor en los Tiempos del Colera").

Plain and simple:The Grapes of Wrath. It intertwines historical lessons with heartbreaking fictional narrative. PURE BRILLANCE.

My favorite this year was "Cutting for Stone".

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 6:03:48 PM PST
Funny, because I really liked it too, but friends of mine who mentioned it to me could not get into it. After I finished it, I told them to try again.

I agree with "One Hundred Years of Solitude", even more incredible when read in Spanish. I have both versions.The humour is the epitome of magical realism. Garcia Marquez' other books are wonderful too, but it is difficult to top the Buendia family and their kin.

I seem to have the same taste in reading as 1864, as cutting for stone was also one of my favorites
have you read the Infidel ? A great book.

Best book written, "Unbroken"

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 7:38:43 PM PST
You are so correct. Man's strength over all odds. It is a book to have on a deserted island. You wouldn't be alone.

The Winds of War is such a good, well-written story. I did not want it to end.
