criteria. In the end it is such a personal thing -
different books strike one at different times of life. I've
thought about this for a while and can only really come
up with one all time great: A Suitable Boy, by
Vikram Seth. It has something for everyone, and grand
themes for contemplation, and it's a great read. I have
read thousands of books over the years - recently I
was astounded by the brilliant Cold Mountain, by
Charles Frazier, and The Hours, by Michael Cunningham,
was (literally) breathtaking (an astonishing ending
that I didn't see coming). Closer to home, a local
(Western Australian)publication, Pomegranate Season, by
Caroline Polizzotto, was a beautifully structured and
moving memoir of place and family. There are many more
books I have loved for many reasons - it would be too
hard to rank them. I hope other members won't shy away
from the task...<br>Karen

There's a long list of links that appears at the left of the screen
starting with "Home" and continuing until it gets down to "Calendar"
which is the second to last entry in the list.
I'm new here too but as I understand it there is an entry for the
Alexandria Quartet in March (and no entry so far for April) because
the group is going to be reading all four books of the series which
will take a while.
