Looking for some new books to read? Need a gift for the reader in your life? Around the World in 80 Books solves both issues!
With five suggested books in each of the world’s sixteen regions, there is something for everyone included here. Books as diverse as The Divine Comedy and Stuart Little rub shoulders with college literary class favorites Mrs. Dalloway and Ulysses. Within each individual book’s section is more than just a synopsis and a review. The author also gives some background to the author’s time period and even how other books have impacted the author’s writing style.
Since I love books, I have read many of the books listed in Around the World in 80 Books. However, I found the book chapters so cogent and informative, I might read a few again from a completely new perspective. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to Penguin Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
