In Topic: Book Recommendations

17 September 2017 - 08:50 AM

I'm a bit sad I didn't get to add my books while this thread was not dead yet, so anyway I'm gonna add my recommendations.

 

  • Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
    Opened my eyes, it shares kind of a peaceful philosophy of life (if it makes sense), much more than I would have expected. I watched all the movies and the BBC series before, I didn't expect to find so much truth in it. It's kinda spiritual, but not so much in a religious way. 
     
  • East of Eden - John Steinbeck 
    It's a book that portrays life in the USA among 2 families at the beginning of the XXth century. You just feel like being in the life of those people, it's so human. Full of life lessons, I can't even find the words. "The book explores themes of depravity, beneficence, love, and the struggle for acceptance, greatness, and the capacity for self-destruction and especially of guilt and freedom." Just like Jane Eyre, that opened my eyes. Steinbeck actually won a Nobel Prize, well you understand while reading it. 
    BTW, they made an adaptation of the book, well I'm not going to watch it because for script purposes they chose an extract focused on a love story, which is (surprisingly for me) one of my least favorite stories of the book. Indeed the book is a mix of several stories happening at the same time (like in GOT for example).
     
  • John Grisham's books
    Complitely different style, but I discovered by surprise how much I love legal thrillers. "The legal thriller is a subgenre of thriller and crime fiction in which the major characters are lawyers and their employees" 
    I couldn't let go of The Firm, The Testament but above all The Rainmaker
