From the Jacket
Books is like the wisest, cleverest, best-read and
trusted friend you have ever had. The recommendations for inclusion
in this comprehensive book were made by a bibliophile and writer
with a peerless reputation, but the reviews themselves were
compiled by lecturers, writers and book lovers, sharing their
pleasure or surprise or even indignation with the rest of us.
Reading is of course subjective, but the reviewers have set aside
their personal preferences to share their thoughts and impressions
with book lovers everywhere. This comprehensive guide will inspire
you to read more widely than you could have imagined and to explore
previously untrodden paths in your bookstore or library. In these
pages you will find travel rubbing shoulders with memoir, modern
and classic fiction, nestling together, sci-fi and thrillers,
children's books and history all gathered and reviewed in sometimes
surprising but always stimulating essays.
