every good book ever written, Bookends brings you
a few suggestions from genres ranging across
Irish comedy to Science fiction.
Books Everyone Should Read Before They Die 1 -
The Book Thief - By Markus Zusak

The book thief is a book many people claim to
not keep down. It is a war story that has
moments of sadness told through the innocence of
a childs eyes along with portraying moments of
hope, kindness and friendship throughout one of
the worst periods modern history has witnessed.
If youre a book lover you will relate to most of
the parts of the protagonist Liesel. There have
been many re-reads of this book and it is
suitable for anyone learning English as the
language it is written in is simple yet
beautiful. 2 - The Kite Runner - By Khaled
Hosseini
Known to be one of the most moving stories ever
written, The Kite Runner is a story of 2 friends
as good as brothers and their journey through
life from their early days in Kabul flying kites
to the war torn years in Afghanistan. During this
time, Amir betrays his friend Hassan and flees to
America, it is a story about his redemption and
his journey through life set in 2 very different
backgrounds.

3 - My Name is Red - By Orhan Pamuk
My Name is Red is a very moving story set amidst
the splendor and religious intrigue of 16th
century in Istanbul. It blends philosophy and art
with thriller and archaic Islamic views. The
author Orhan Pamuk was the first Turkish author
to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature
(2006). Also Read What Makes a Used Book
Special? 4 - The Hunchback of Notre Dame - By
Victor Hugo and Wuthering Heights - By Emily
Bronte
4
These 2 are classics written in the 1800s. While
both books are intensely romantic, they bare also
strange and tragic at their heart. Both the
authors are known to be revolutionary writers at
the time. Hugo while making the main characters
poor and lowest of the low in society was a tad
bit opposite to Emily Bronte who created a unique
and multi-voice narrative which hasnt be
equaled. 5 - Peter and Wendy - By J.M Barrie
Peter and Wendy is also a book that people pick
up time and again to re-read. There have been
many adaptations of the story of Peter Pan but
this one is loved by all owing to the imagination
and humor put in it. It is an age old book
written on the lines of fantasy hence it may come
across as a book having hundred-year-old ideas.
But it takes everyone back to the days of Peter
Pan making us feel like kids and take us to a
magical place.
