Heather Telford A Thread of Grace this was a wonderful story set in Italy during WW2. I liked it because it told the same stories from a different perspective. the book also had some of the most wonderful character contained in fiction- you root for all of them to the very end- even the bad guys! Worth every minute!


message 2: by Jack (new)

Jack I love the Book Thief, but number 1? Really?

And Gravity's Rainbow is so low. :(


message 3: by Dale (new)

Dale Did I miss Erik Larson's incredible "The Garden of Beasts"? It's pretty close to perfect.

My honest opinion would be The Book Thief is seriously overrated, not only in this list.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Kinda confused. Why is 1984 in this list? Such a far stretch...


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael Scully Life and Fate by Vassily Grossman. Unspeakably brilliant.


message 7: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed 1984 and Lord of the Flies - can't see any connections there to WWII.
