Heart of Darkness

by Joseph Conrad

Pound for pound, the greatest novel ever written in the English language.

Conrad got to see King Leopold's Africa and brilliantly portrays it in this classic frame tale. Journey with Marlowe up the mighty mysterious Congo River and discover the brutality that all humans are capable of.

The ending? It punches a hole straight through my heart, every time.

Jimgrim and Allah's Peace

by Talbot Mundy

This is a surprisingly modern thriller with espionage, geopolitics and good old-fashioned fisticuffs. It's compulsively readable. A rip-roaring story told in the chaos after World War 1, about British and regional interests in the Middle East. The anti-Semitism disappointed me quite a bit but if nothing else is true to the time and place of the story.

I read all five books in this series and truly enjoyed them. All too often we find that these out-of-copyright ebooks are difficult to read and generally inaccessible. This book and its sequels are different. They are truly excellent stories that hold up vs. today's thrillers.

The Diary of a U-boat Commander

by Stephen King-Hall

An interesting read that skillfully appeared like an authentic non fictional account until the final chapters. The author obviously had some experience in the subject matter. An enjoyable enough read.

Nobody's Boy

by Hector Malot

I read this book at age 10. And I imeadiately read it again and again. It had a profound impact on me. In retrospect it shaped thereafter, how I was to relate to the less fortunate. I am now 68. I highly recommend it to all parents.
