Interesting books I read this year
The list author says: "Just a list of books I read this year (and a bit of last year)"
Ghost Train to the Eastern Star: On the Tracks of the Great Railway Bazaar
"A great, new travel book by Paul Theroux. Funny, disturbing, wise, insightful, personal."
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Penguin Classics)
"A classic everyone should read."
Italy's Sorrow: A Year of War, 1944-1945
"This book gives a thorough, well-balanced account of the war in Italy in 1944 and 1945."
Hotel Honolulu: A Novel
"In my opinion one of the best books of Paul Theroux."
A Romance on Three Legs: Glenn Gould's Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Piano
"Interesting book about Glenn Gould, piano-tuning, piano-building, Steinway."
"What a book! Unfortunately it stops after about 1000 pages...."
The Rebels' Hour
"If you want to know more about the war in DR Congo / Rwanda (the forgotten war), read this."
The Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Join the Millions Who Have Become Non-Smokers Using Allen Carr's Easyway Method
"No literary masterpiece, but this year it has been important to me."
Travels with Charley;: In search of America
"A classic. And a great one."
The Elephanta Suite: Three Novellas
"Maybe not his best, but still a satisfying read."
In Europe: Travels Through the Twentieth Century
"If you want to know more about 20th century European history, read this book. Big book, easy read. Highly recommended."
The Grapes of Wrath
"Great classic. Timeless."
Sviatoslav Richter: Notebooks and Conversations
"Interesting notes by the great Richter. Richter could be very critical of collegues. Unfortunately the harshest comments have been removed by Bruno Monsaingeon. Poor editorial choice."
The Guns of August: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Classic About the Outbreak of World War I
"Great book on the first month of WW I. Bit dated at times, but still great read. Doesn't need the glowing introduction, which repeatedly states how great this book is."
Machiavelli: Philosopher of Power (Eminent Lives)
"Good introduction to life and times of Machiavelli (and Florentine society of around 1500)."
The Places In Between
"Great adventure. Very well written."
The Prince of the Marshes: And Other Occupational Hazards of a Year in Iraq
"Great book on post-war chaos in Iraq by former (deputy-) governor in Iraq (province of Maysan). Very well written."
Losing My Virginity: How I've Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way
"Fun read about the rich life of Richard Branson."
Chopin In Paris: The Life And Times Of The Romantic Composer
"Disappointing. In the introduction Szulc says that he wanted to write a biography on Chopin since no good biography is available. This book does not fill that gap."
The Best and the Brightest
"Great book on Vietnam politics during Kennedy and Johnson years. Unfortunately, this book does not cover the Nixon years."
