This post was last modified: 04 Aug 2012 06:13 AM by daveb.
Bit of a bargain over at Amazon's Kindle Daily Deal today ..........

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold: A moving exploration of loss and mourning, narrated from heaven.
Room by Emma Donoghue: A beautiful and profoundly moving story about five-year-old Jack whose entire world measures 12 x 12 feet.
White Noise by Don Delillo: A highly acclaimed and funny book about humankind's preoccupation with mortality.
Last Orders by Graham Smith: Tragic, compassionate and winner of the 1996 Man Booker Prize.
The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst: A sharp, era-defining satire that won the 2004 Man Booker Prize.
The Sea by John Banville: Incandescent prose and deft narrative characterise Banville's 2005 Booker winner.
All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy: Cinematic and epic in scope, this is one of the great American novels.
Mother's Milk by Edward St Aubyn: The author at his very best--caustic, hilarious and irresistibly profound.

All at 99p for one day only

I already have The Strangers Child by Alan Hollinghurst from the 20p sale, so I have taken The Line of Beauty now so that I can read the books in the proper order. Nice one Big Grin

Good Oh Smile

I know it's down to personal taste however I can thoroughly recommend All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. One of those books that is not only an engrossing character driven read but stays with you for many years afterwards.
