Since no-one read anything in March, I think we could use March books for May poll!!

Please suggest your book for this month and please please please, share your opinion on the book.

@ A Devils Kiss: I have seen the movie, less than zero,<br />
<br />
I will check out the book, thanks for suggestion

Less Than Zero: Bret Easton Ellis<br />
<br />
Grosteque: Natsuo Kirino (just started wrote a post)<br />
<br />
Wasted: Marya Hornbacher (getting a new copy)<br />
<br />
I don't really like to write a lot about the books,I tend to spoil it. I saw the author in the comment above and I liked Less than zero , a lot, Movie title by the same. <br />
The next 2 I have just started reading, I lost one and started the other,

@ Richie Rich: this is an old one,<br />
<br />
Thousand splendid suns is good but not as good as the kite runner,<br />
<br />
I will post a new list of suggestions soon,

@ Lord V ...A Thousand Splendid Suns is a good choice but I just finished a 'The Kite Runner' so perhaps I chose something else. I am very open.....

Thanks for the list, very interesting one.

Thanks, great list, as always. Thank you again for your time

I recently read "Special Topics In Calamity Physics," which was surprisingly good. Marissa Pessl is the author; she is a playwright, and this is her first novel. At first glance, it seems like a coming-of-age story, but it is much more than that. It's a murder mystery, a conspiracy plot, and, ultimately, a story about all of us. <br />
<br />
I also recently re-read "Candide" by Voltaire. This book is a wild ride and a philosophical treatise on the human condition. Specifically, Voltaire is showing us that the world and its inhabitants aren't necessarily under the watchful eye of a kind and gentle god. Fantastic book, full of surprises and wisdom.<br />

Thank you, good choice, I hope your dad finishes his report soon.

I only got to Chapter Four of "Three Cups of Tea", then I gave it to my Dad to read. I'm expecting a full report from him shortly.<br />
<br />
For April can I suggest "Dead Man's Footsteps" by Peter James. I started reading it already. It's not very literary I'm afraid.

@ Duchess: I have read it, great choice, I suggest Khaled Hosseini's new book "A Thousand Splendid Suns".<br><br />
<br><br />
<br />
@MissBebe: great choice, thanks. I suggest that too.<br />
<br />
Thank you for the suggestion

thank you very much for the list, they are quite interesting, I'll add them in the poll. Hope you get enough time to finish your books
