Booking Through Thursday — Foreigners

Todays Booking Through Thursday question is… “Name a book (or books) from a country other than your own that you love. Or aren’t there any?”

Oh, there definitely are.

The Shadow of the Wind (from Spain) is a book I read what feels like forever ago, but that I’m still pretty in love with. I need to find the Cemetery of Forgotten Books someday.

Its prequel, The Angel’s Game, is also good, if more confusing than its predecessor.

Who Slashed Celanire’s Throat is an intriguing book, one of those where there’s not much plot but there are plenty of interesting characters.

And of course no list of anything is complete without my beloved Thursday Next series, out of Wales, which is a completely oddball series about a literary detective in an alternate-universe England where time travel is real, people have cloned dodos for pets, and books are not just for reading.

    Intriguing list. I loved The Shadow of the Wind, too. It's one of the books that got me interested in reading again after a long dry spell, a few years back. Wonderful book!
