Don Quijote

by Miguel de Cervantes

I could never really understand what is so great about this book.
when I was a grown up kid I have read it, and thought it was boring. I have retried reading it as an adult, with many years of reading behind me, with a full version, and could not stand the tempo and the so many very small stories wome of which so similar to each other.
The only positive aspect of this book as faras I am concerned is that it had ispired the great contemporary south Americal author Borches to write an excelent short masterpiece about a man who wanted to write again the book Don Quijote...

Soldiers of the Queen

by Harold Avery

Exciting, humorous, sensitive, moving and poignant.

This book is a really outstanding read and although intended as a book for boys well deserves to be enjoyed by a wider audience. I still have my father's well thumbed copy with which he was awarded at his school prizegiving early in the last century and which has now reached the third generation! A real classic.

Riveting story that is quite educational and believable, about the extent of disruption to which modern hackers are capable of.

The Silent Places

by Stewart Edward White

Silent Places is my favorite of all Stewart Edward White books. If you enjoy the out-of-doors and the wilderness experience do not pass this up!
