    Under the Poppy. So far, fascinating - I love historical fiction, particularly when it deals with the gritty underbelly of society.

    The Town by Chuck Hogan, which was originally published as The Prince of Thieves. It's pretty good so far.

    The Lost: The Search for Six of Six Million
    by Daniel Mendehlson.

    It's a deep read. The author is searching for answers as to how his great Uncle and his four daughters disappeared during WWII and
    were among the millions of Jews eradicated.

    Life by Keith Richards. I am amazed that he remembers anything. He is not too fond of Mick. Interesting

    Too Close To The Falls by Catherine Gildiner. The autobiog of a girl who grew up in Niagara Falls in the 1950s. Such an amazing cast of (real) characters and beautifully written. Highly recommended.

    'black swan green' by david mitchell. a coming-of-age story about a 13 year-old boy in thatcher-era england. absolutely wonderful. i haven't loved a book this much in a while. it's not only beautifully written, it really captures what it's like to be that age again, including tiny details that i'd completely forgotten about but the second you read them it's like you're transported back in time. it's funny, smart, heartbreaking and thoroughly awesome.

    Love this thread because it gives me great ideas.

    Been reading dumb chick lit and needed something better.

    Also, just read Hannah's Dream - you might like it if you liked Water For Elephants.

    If you enjoyed this try Line Of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst. Set in the same era with a gay storyline for added thrills.
