Today's Writing Prompt: Best Book

I'm starting a theme of favorites or best-of's this week.

What's the best book you've read recently?

The Non-Fiction by Joshua Foer- Moonwalking with Einstein. It deals with using mneumonics and loci to re-map short term memory. Best of really works!

I've read several lately but the one that stuck with is Child of the Mountains by Marilyn Shank. I believe it may be called a YA but it's for all people, especiallly those who want to learn about the Appalachian culture from the POV of a young girl. Beautifully written and true to life. I'm an appalachian girl...

LAMB by Christopher Moore. I've had my share of bad experiences with religion, a lot of them stemming from the fact that Jesus always frightened me due to his divinity; this fun and fast read is about Jesus' childhood and how he came to be the messiah, as told by his best friend.

Wasn't this the BEST! I've read everything Christopher Moore has written. He is amazing :)

I just read a 20th century Chinese classic by Lao She called RICKSHAW. A painful story told with great sympathy and insight. Published in 1938 - English translation, I'm not sure when.

Amayrani Franco said...

Yes! I loved it! A few years back I tried reading one of his books and I couldn't get into it, but after reading lamb I think I may have to revisit some of it.
Also, do you like Chuck Palahniuk?

Carla Hurst-Chandler said...

Yes...and Carl Hiaasen
they all have the same twisted style :)

Have you read Sacre Bleu by Moore? Exceptional!
