Book Recommendations

As an older adult, are their books that you have read and would recommend. I have read about every genre although I would say romance is my least favorite. Would love to hear your opinions!

Re: Book Recommendations

I've just read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca ?Splook, and it's an amazing read. I would heartily reccommend it not only as an incredible story but for an insight into medical research and the treatment of poor blacks in the US in the past.

Hello Pat. Wilbur Smith's books are great. Ian Rankin too.

Ania The book you've just read sounds interesting. Will have a look.

Re: Book Recommendations

I really enjoyed reading "the Afghan", I think Ken Follet wrote it.
I hope that someone makes a film from it.
