A book I will enjoy

Recommended Posts

Hi nice people,

 

I'm looking for something which has great (or funny, recognizable) characters and no redundant descriptions. Preferably easy to get through, yet stays in your head. Also an everyday setting would be great, like a school for example. In short: light but still with literary qualities.
Authors I like are Rober B. Parker (for the characters and plot, I'm not per se a detective reader), Nick Hornby, even Jane Austen.

 

Thanks a bunch

Hmm, when you mention the school setting my mind immediately goes to "Goodbye Mr Chips" by James Hilton.  It is a short book but I think will tick the boxes you require.  Characters staying with you; literary qualities; good plotting.

What about The History Boys Alan Bennett, it's a play though so not sure if that would put you off it  :smile:

what about One For the Money (a long, on-going series) book from Janet Evanovich. Fun, easy to read, stays with you.
