You probably need to adapt a bit at first, but in no time this book will read like a novel. And that’s pretty cool. This book is in fact the original screenplay of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
It makes you curious when a book receives so much attention when it is published. At the entrance of several bookshops in London it was difficult to miss the yellow book towers of the latest novel by Zadie Smith, Swing Time.
If my previous book blog about What Is the What sounded a bit too heavy, then Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination might be a better choice for a sunny afternoon.
This book will change your life. Ehm, that might be a bit exaggerated, but you will never ever forget this story. A word of warning, it is not a cheerful book.
Bill Gates recommended this book to me…..ok not in person (that would be something), but while reading an American news site a little banner popped up saying “6 books Bill Gates says you should read”.
What a well written book this is!! The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. An extraordinary scientific discovery intertwined with a family story that starts in the year 1800 in which the protagonist Alma Whittaker is born.
The author of this book is probably best known for his bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared. If you have read this book and think the writer has put all his crazy ideas and ridiculously funny stories in one book, you are wrong.
I hardly read autobiographies. Actually thinking about it, this book is probably the first I have read so far.
When you start reading this book you immediately feel that The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is different from other books.
