This book may be easily overlooked, but it is one of the best new apocalyptic and dystopian books in the modern day. First of all, because horrors appear in a casual environment: city of our times. There you won’t find any sentimental stuff at all: shoot first, sweetheart, because everything that is usual has become a deadly trap. Oh, and you need to save yourself not alone or with your beloved one, but with your ex-husband’s wife and her son. Take notice, that it might be hard to find this book in the United States, but Amazon can be quite handy here to find this book (also, don’t forget that amazon promo code exists as well, so you can shop at lot cheaper with them not only while buying books – we would like to recommend them just in case!).

Books on how to be like a real Frenchman are so popular, and there are so many of them, that they should have separate shelves in libraries or bookstores. However, this author is a real expert of French lifestyle (the other we consider charming Ines de La Fressange and her “Parisian”). If you liked Giuliano’s “Why French women are not getting fat,” this book is also worth reading – French write about food so good, that we don’t need to cook them at all because only reading those makes our bellies full!

Iceland’s first president’s granddaughter’s life story – in general, is a great story worth reading and hard to put away. The main heroine Herbjorga Maria Bjornson had a very colourful and complicated life from which many of us can learn a lot. So, if you would like to take only one book with you, probably we would recommend you take this and learn how to live and grow old.

Or any other novel from this author about Harry Hulea. Scandinavian detectives are also worth the entire shelf (keep away from books on how to become French), but nowadays, these books are the best. And this Nesbo’s detective about a complex fate and not very romantic life of Hulea is easy to read and indeed very capturing.
