For Michael, loyalty - and crime - pay.

Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya....
 
Like no other masterpiece of historical fiction, Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II is the great novel of America's Greatest Generation.
 
Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events, as well as all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II, as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

The Mother Tongue: English and How It Got That Way
by Bill Bryson
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya....
 
With dazzling wit and astonishing insight, Bill Bryson, the acclaimed author of The Lost Continent, brilliantly explores the remarkable history, eccentricities, resilience and sheer fun of the English language.
From the first descent of the larynx into the throat (why you can talk but your dog can't), to the fine lost art of swearing, Bryson tells the fascinating, often uproarious story of an inadequate, second rate tongue of peasants that developed into one of the world's largest growth industries.

The Shipping News by Annie Proulx
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya....
 
When Quoyle's two timing wife meets her just desserts, he retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters and family members all play a part in Quoyle's struggle to reclaim his life.
As Quoyle confronts his private demons and the unpredictable forces of nature and society, he begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery.
A vigorous, darkly comic, and at times magical portrait of the contemporary North American family, The Shipping News shows why Annie Proulx is recognized as one of the most gifted and original writers in America today.

Cloudsplitter by Russell Banks
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya....
 
A triumph of the imagination and a masterpiece of modern storytelling, Cloudsplitter is narrated by the enigmatic Owen Brown, last surviving son of America's most famous and still controversial political terrorist and martyr, John Brown.
Deeply researched, brilliantly plotted, and peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters both historical and wholly invented, Cloudsplitter is dazzling in its re-creation of the political and social landscape of American history during the years before the Civil War, when slavery was tearing the country apart.
But within this broader scope, Russell Banks has given us a riveting, suspenseful, heartbreaking narrative filled with intimate scenes of domestic life, of violence and action in battle, of romance and familial life and death that make the reader feel in astonishing ways what it is like to be alive in that time.

Pre-Suasion A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade,
By Robert Cialdini.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya....
 
Robert Cialdini, “the foremost expert on effective persuasion” explains how it’s not necessarily the message itself that changes minds, but the key moment before you deliver that message.
 
What separates effective communicators from truly successful persuaders?
With the same rigorous scientific research and accessibility that made his Influence an iconic bestseller, Robert Cialdini explains how to prepare people to be receptive to a message before they experience it.
Optimal persuasion is achieved only through optimal pre-suasion.
In other words, to change “minds” a pre-suader must also change “states of mind.”

The trail offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings.

Bangkok 8 (Sonchai Jitpleecheep #1) by John Burdett
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
A thriller with attitude to spare, Bangkok 8 is a sexy, razor-edged, often darkly hilarious novel set in one of the world’s most exotic cities.

Among the witnesses are the only two cops in the city not on the take, but within moments one is murdered and his partner, Sonchai Jitpleecheep a devout Buddhist and the son of a Thai bar girl and a long-gone Vietnam War G.I. is hell bent on wreaking revenge.

The Business of Dying by Simon Kernick..
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
It's a typical cold November night and Detective Sergeant Dennis Milne, a very atypical policeman, waits in the Traveller's Rest hotel parking lot for the arrival of three men. Cynical and jaded, Milne earns money on the side by doing what he does best: punishing the bad guys.
But this time he's been duped.
Instead of blowing away drug dealers, he kills three innocent people, their deaths starting an investigation that sees him and his conscience heading for trouble.

Amy Winehouse: A Losing Game by Mick O'Shea, Mick O'Shea......
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
As well known for her fraught personal life as her chart topping songs, Amy Winehouse was one of the most compelling vocalists in the world. (according to her mum)
The critical and commercial success she achieved with her multi million selling second album, Back to Black, catapulted her to international stardom in 2007, but it was her life offstage that generated daily headlines in the tabloid press.
Drinking binges, self harm, eating disorders, drug abuse and a turbulent marriage to Blake Fielder Civil overshadowed her music even as her record sales soared, and the world’s media watched eagerly as Amy’s world imploded, while her talent threatened to go with it.
Tragically, on 23 July 2011 Amy lost her long term battle with drugs and alcohol, passing away aged just 27.

Stalingrad by David M Glantz..
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
David Glantz has done something that very few historians achieve.
He has redefined an entire major subject: The Russo-German War of 1941 -1945.
His exploration of newly available Russian archive records has made him an unrivaled master of Soviet sources.
His command of German material is no less comprehensive. Add to this perceptive insight and balanced judgment, and the result is a series of seminal and massive volumes that come as close as possible to ‘telling it like it was.&’ Glantz has done some of his best work with Jonathan House.
The Stalingrad Trilogy is the definitive account of World War II’s turning point.
