My favouritesIf there are any readers here of historical fiction, memoirs, etc, please do suggest some of your favorite books! I would love to know.
@Neetu - If you are a fan of historical fiction but not fussed about the country of origin then a series of books by C J Sansom featuring a character called Shardlake is excellent - wonderfully written.
No worries, I'm sure you will enjoy them.Monaque, I am a fan of historical fiction! And my goodness, to fuss about the country of origin would diminish me as a reader! I have found such incredible power in many of these books from all sorts of countries as long as they are in English. It gives me insight into cultures and attitudes far more interesting than in the plain reading of historical texts. Thank you for the recommendation. I will absolutely look it up and see if I can get it at one of the libraries I am member of.
She's supposed to be good, in the top whatever books to read she's always in there.I'm reading Left Hand of Darkness by Le Guin, and to be honest, I don't really care for it.
It feels like an adjective soup. She hits you with word after word after word telling you how things went, but I do not feel that most of the events were actually made to transpire using words.
It's an interesting world and you're almost guaranteed to learn a few vocabulary words, so at least there's that.
