19 Dec Jaime’s Books of the Year
While we wait for our readers to send in their choices of favourite books of 2014, here we present the choices of the bookshop team. Jaime is the bookshop’s web content manager and here are her three nominations:
Neel Mukherjee’s The Lives of Others (novel) (Chatto & Windus).
“Nominated for the Booker Prize, this is a sad and brutal story, very thought-provoking and beautifully written. A whole world of the interconnected lives of others is brought to life with great skill.”
David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks (Sceptre).
“This was my first novel by David Mitchell, and I was hooked after the first chapter. He’s a superb storyteller, with much to relish along the way.”
ShaoLan’s Chineasy: The New Way to Read Chinese (Thames & Hudson).
“This is a fun, colourful and entertaining visual book. It brought me back to my childhood when my parents taught me how to write in Chinese. The nostalgia!”
