1.Arthur & George by Julian Barnes
Not another Sherlock Holmes story.
Set in late-Victorian Britain, a pseudohistorical novel that follows the lives of sir Arthur (Conan Doyle), who is living in Edinburgh and George,the son of a Midlands vicar. A book that you will find difficult to put down as the two men who for the first half of the book are unaware of each other, lead extremely different lives while the flow of the action will bring them together as their stories intersect.
2. Chocolat by Joanne Harris
You probably saw that coming.
It’s sweet and warm and fuzzy and all things nice and comforting when it’s too cold and grey outside.
Think of it as the equivalent of comfort food in the form a book that tastes like bitter sweet liquid chocolate.
A book about moving on,letting go,humanity,nemesis,whitchcraft and sexy gypsies.
3. High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
“It’s brilliant, being depressed; you can behave as badly as you like.”
Stuck in a really deep groove? A great opportunity for you and Rob to ponder on lifes greatest questions like am I sad because I listen to pop music or do I listen to pop music cause Im’m sad?
Make a top-five-list of your fave winter books and this will go straight to the top.
Let me know,what came first the music or the misery?
