Autor de bestseller
StålSilvia AVALONactivaactivainactivainactiva14/03/2013 
This book - Steel - has become a real bestseller in many countries. Perhaps a surprise to many - but the troubled friendship between the two teenage girls might be the reason for the sucess.
 

Ha nacido el mismo año que tú
Toutes les choses qu'on ne s'est pas ditesMarc LEVYactivainactivainactivainactiva07/04/2013 
It proved to be quite difficult to find an author born the same year as me. Marc Levy is a real bestseller and I suspected I wouldn't like to book - and I didn't. But I was surprised by how easy it was to read it in French. Nice, straightforward language!

The secret history of modernismC.K. STEADactivaactivainactivainactiva18/04/2013 
The title promised more than it kept. But a rather nice book, nevertheless.

America, AmericaEthan CANINactivaactivainactivainactiva17/05/2013 
I 've loved the other books I've read by Ethan Canin. This book a little bit less so, but strangely enough the characters and the story in this book left a stong inpression and will probably stay longer with me than the other books by him.
 

Ha nacido en África
AgaatMarlene van NIEKERKactivaactivaactivaactiva10/07/2013 
A truly wonderful book! I just couldn't put it down. I begin to understand those who start to re-read it as soon as the've finish it. The book can be read in so many ways, the interpretation and understanding of the main characters are as far from one-dimensional they could be. As a bonus the the complex issue of apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa is there as und undercurrent in the whole book.

Feminist BD with a LOT of sharp humour.
 

Autor de vida poco ejemplar
Under the volcanoMalcolm LOWRYactivaactivaactivainactiva13/08/2013 
Modernist classic with the hard drinking consul in the center. Lowrys insights in the drunken mind are undisputable, but ther are many other qualities to the book explaining why its found on so many canon lists.

The marrying of Chani KaufmanEve HARRISactivaactivaactivainactiva23/08/2013 
Impressive novel by the debutant Eve Harris. No wonder that this high spirited book about London's ultra-Orthodox Jewish community was long-listed for the Man Booker prize 2013.

MiddlesexJeffrey Eugenidesactivaactivainactivainactiva07/11/2013 
I've had Middlesex on my bookshelf for a while now - so it is good that I got a push to read it. However, I didn't enjoy it as much as I've hoped...

A Confederacy of DuncesJohn Kennedy Tooleactivaactivainactivainactiva12/11/2013 
Nowadays a classic in US, but not published during the life of John Kennedy Toole. Not really to my liking - but then I'm not much of a fan of picaresque novels.
 

Le guste mucho a tu padre
Röde OrmFrans G BENGTSONactivaactivaactivainactiva18/11/2013 
This book is a favorite om many Swedish men (of the same generation as my father). I have to admit that it was a great book in its genre (adventure, historical setting).

Autor que te dé rabia
JackUlf LUNDELLactivainactivainactivainactiva13/12/2013 
Jack was, when was published 1976, considered as the book of its generation and a formidable comercial success. Reading it now, in late 2013, it is clear that time hasn't been kind to it. It might be a testemony to the late 70s, but never a classic.
 

Comprometido política y/o socialmente
OblivionHéctor ABAD Faciolinceactivaactivainactivainactiva23/12/2013 
A memoir to the author's beloved father, but also a witness of Colombia's violent history. Hector Abad's father was murdered by the paramilitaries and Abad himself was threatened with death and had to fly to Europe. My only problem with the book is that I don't like the memoir genre...
