    The English Patient (Paperback)

    Michael Ondaatje

    Hand-picked favourites
    The Golden Man Booker was set up to celebrate five decades of the Man Booker Prize. All 51 winning entries were considered by a selection of hand-picked judges who chose five winners from each decade. Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient was voted the overall best Man Booker winner in a public vote.

    The Second World War is drawing to a close and the nurse, Hana, is tending to her sole remaining patient in an abandoned Italian villa. Rescued from a burning plane, the anonymous Englishman is damaged and haunted. The only clue to his identity is a copy of The Histories of Herodotus, that has been covered with handwritten notes about a tragic love affair.

    Adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas by director Anthony Mingella, this is a beautifully written and compelling piece of fiction.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

    The 5th Wave (Paperback)

    Rick Yancey

    The Passage meets The Hunger Games in The 5th Wave - a gripping new series from Carnegie-shortlisted Rick Yancey. After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave. On a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, until Cassie meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope for rescuing her brother and even saving herself. Now she must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. Cassie Sullivan gets up. About the author: Rick Yancey is the author of several adult novels and the memoir Confessions of a Tax Collector. His first young-adult novel, The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp, was a finalist for the Carnegie Medal. In 2010, his novel, The Monstrumologist, received Michael L. Printz Honor, and the sequel, The Curse of the Wendigo, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Praise for The 5th Wave: "This is DAMN and WOW territory. Quite simply, one of the best books I've read in years". (Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author). "Breathtakingly fast-paced and original, The 5th Wave is a reading tsunami that grabs hold and won't let go". (Melissa De La Cruz, New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Bloods series). "An epic sci-fi adventure about a terrifying alien invasion. You'll read it in one sitting". (Bookseller). "Yancey's heartfelt, violent, paranoid epic, filled with big heroics and bigger surprises, is part War of the Worlds, part Starship Troopers, part Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and part The Stand ...a sure thing for reviewers and readers alike". (Booklist (starred review)). "A gripping SF trilogy about an Earth decimated by an alien invasion ...the question of what it means to be human is at the forefront". (Publishers Weekly).

    Charles Dickens

    'A parish child - the orphan of a workhouse - the humble, half-starved drudge - to be cuffed and buffeted through the world, despised by all, and pitied by none'.

But the sinister Fagin's grip is not light, and life in the underworld where Oliver now finds himself often ends in a noose ...Mordantly funny, with some of the most memorably drawn characters in all of fiction - including the arch-villain Fagin, menacing Bill Sikes and the artful Dodger - Dickens' novel is a cutting social satire, imbued with a high moral sense and an air of threat and mystery.

    Robert Galbraith

    (1)
    From the author of The Cuckoo's Calling, Lethal White is the fourth book in Robert Galbraith's bestselling Cormoran Strike series. Galbraith is a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling, who has seen the series adapted for television by Bronte Film and Television.

    When a troubled young man named Billy comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime, Strike is left deeply unsettled. Although Billy is mentally distressed and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike asks any further questions, Billy bolts from the office in a panic.

    Trying to figure out Billy's story, Strike and his partner Robin Ellacott set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside.

    During this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did due to his newfound fame. Plus, his relationship with Robin is more fraught than it has ever been - Robin is now invaluable in the business, but their personal relationship is much more tricky than that...

    Inherent Vice (Paperback)

    Thomas Pynchon

    Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon!

    Private eye Doc Sportello comes, occasionally, out of a marijuana haze to watch the end of an era as free love slips away and paranoia creeps in with the L.A. fog. It's been awhile since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly, out of nowhere, she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. Easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that 'love' is another of those words going around at the moment, like 'trip' or 'groovy', except that this one usually leads to trouble.

    Despite which he soon finds himself drawn into a bizarre tangle of motives and passions whose cast of characters includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, a tenor sax player working undercover, an ex-con with a swastika tattoo and a fondness for Ethel Merman, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists.

    In this lively yarn Inherent Vice, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there...or...if you were there, then you...or, wait, is it...
