Brown, Dan. The lost symbol / Dan Brown. – New York: Doubleday, 2009. – 509 p.

Blockbuster perfection… A gleefully erudite suspense novel. Not since the advent of Harry Potter has an author so flagrantly delighted in leading readers on a breathless chase and coaxing them trough hoops.

New York Times

 

3Fitzerald, Francis Scott. Tender is the night / Francis Scott Fitzerald. – New York: Penguin Books, 1997. – 392 p.

Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick’s harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character, Tender Is the Night is lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative…

4Irving, John. In one person: A novel / John Irving. – London: Doubleday, 2012. – 425 p.

This tender exploration of nascent desire, of love and loss, manages to be sweeping, brilliant, political, provocative, tragic and funny – it is precisely the kind of astonishing alchemy we associate with a John Irving novel…

Abraham Verghese

 

2Scott, Walter. Ivanhoe / SirWalter Scott. – London: Penguin Books, 1994. – 527 p.

Caught at the right age, or in the right mood, it is hard to imagine a reader finding any book more exciting or more delightful…a wonder of suspense

A. N. Wilson

 

5Rowling, Joanne Katheline. The casual vacancy / Joanne Katheline Rowling. – New York, 2012. – 503 p.

The Casual Vacancy is a complete joy to read…A stunning, brilliant, outrageously gripping and entertaining evocation of British society today.

Henry Sutton
