I am looking for good historical fiction or novels which allow me to learn about a particular subject area as a background to the story. I would appreciate any suggestions. Ben

Start with Wolf Haii, by Hilary Mantel. The time period of Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell. Excellent. Try books by Alison Wair.

A Nobody in a Somebody World is awesome and very hard to put down! I know there are more stories and I wish she could elaborate and the stories she wrote. When this book comes out in a couple of weeks, everyone should read it. I've pre-ordered 4 already. I am no relation, just able to get an advanced copy.

My favorite Book is TIME AND AGAIN by Finney. it flows smoothly with lots of twists and turns. (Incedentaly my favorite movie is SOMEWHERE IN TIME). I don't enjoy time travel when it is the only gimmic and totally about the trip and not progressing in a story. I enjoy TIME AND AGAIN because the details about life in another time so different from ours but the main sdtory progresses with charactor development and a strong plot. I'm rereading it now to remember the things that make it so special.

Boleo, thanks for the referral of Time and Again. I looked it up and it looks fascinating. I'm especially interested if they now may make a movie out of it. I sure would have liked to see Redford in the role. But, he's way too old now. Its on my "to read" list.

Another author I like is Anita Shreve. She has written A Pilot's Wife, Where or When, The Weight of Water, Fortune's Rocks, Strange Fits of Passion, Eden Close, Resistance, The Last Time They Met and many others. They are quick and easy reads with very interesting plots. I wish she would write some new ones!

i was so surprised to see your best book! A lot of people do not want to read such a long book. I love long books. This is my all time favorite. I read it about 20 years ago. It compares well with the likes Of Winds of
War and War and Rememberance. Do you know the back story about Ladies of the Club author? would like to hear of other books you love!

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Phenomenal.

Sweet Tooth Ian McEwan's latest novel about young women recent graduate of Cambridge joins the British intelligence service to attain operative status and find herself entangled in a love affair with the subject of her spying. The book has McEwan's usual unusal twists and turns. An added plus is his the realistic recreation of the cold war atmosphere surrounding life in the 1970s and the naivete of the liberal cultural.

"HOME WHEN THE STREETLIGHTS COME ON" by Hank Leo, Jr.
Great read from a new author, from the heart warm, uplifting, at times down-right hysterical! Real life stories from a small town in central NY. Hank's book has been selling out in local bookstores and is making its way around the country after many are recommending it to family and friends everywhere!
I look forward to his next!

I loved The Lacuna too. I was struck by Kingsolvers writing - one amazing metaphor after another. I listened to it on audio, it's read by Barbara Kingsolver, and her voice is totally mesmerizing. While the story was deep, in the end, it boils down to chatter, mindless journalism, beginning with the howlers in the first chapter. A brilliant piece of work.

Follett is my favorite author. Trouble is I'm caught up and have no more books of his to read till the next one comes out.
