Underground Books – 2nd March 2010

Not a bad haul this morning. Lots of people starting new books I think. Practice is making it easier for me to spot titles as well but if you would hold up the book a bit higher I’ll be able to read the cover more clearly…

An interesting range of books being read as well. Not all of them are from the Top 20.

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
According to Amazon this book is bought by people who also buy Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson 
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
This is a travelogue based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s own experiences across the world. The reviews are rave and it looks like a must read.

Interestingly it also gets bought with Stieg Larsson’s works as well.

Iron Coffins by Herbert Werner
An autobiographical novel about serving in the German U-Boats during the Second World War.
The Game by Neil Strauss
Here it is again! Spotted last week as well.

The Eyes of Darkness by Dean Koontz
This sounds like a real horror story. A voyage of discovery in search a a dead child – who may not be dead.

No Logo by Naomi Klein
Ever felt bullied by the brands? This is the antidote and Ms Klein points out that the only reason the brands have been successful is because of us, the consumers. These days it’s certainly worth considering where our goods come from and how the people who make them are treated.
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The story of two Afghan women thrown together by circumstance.

This book has some real rave reviews and is said by some to be better than The Kite Runner. A gripping story by all accounts.

This Other Eden by Ben Elton
The end of the world is nigh… and there’s a film to be made which is what Nathan is going to do whatever any one else thinks.
