Suggested Reading

There are few things in life I enjoy more than a crisp fall day spent sipping hot tea and reading a great book. With fall upon us, here are some I suggested titles sure to compliment your cup of Earl Grey.

The World Without Us by Alan Weisman – A delightfully engaging read which asks: how would the planet heal itself if humans were to suddenly disappear? Well written – neither too simplistic nor too technical – Weisman explores both evolutionary history and future projections of the state of Earth. Sure to cause lots of discussion, this would be great for a book club.

The Good German by Joseph Kanon – Set in the immediate aftermath of the fall of Berlin and the Allied occupation, this is a first-class murder mystery.

Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss – Good grammar is hilarious!

On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan – A superbly told story from an amazing writer. Short but immensely powerful.
