The Remains of The Day

The Remains of the Day

The events that took place in a lord's house in England prior to WWII, as well as meetings with state representatives, are told through the eyes of a servant. You'll enjoy reading Kazuo Ishiguro's novel, which tells the story of a man who is so burdened with solemnity that he lets the love of his life slip through his fingers.

fingersmith

Fingersmith

A perfect suspense novel, fictionalized around two strong main characters, Sue Trinder and Maud Lilly. A fascinating and elegant story, reminiscent of old great novels, awaits you. A clever and shocking fiction, a gripping narrative, a dark, engrossing atmosphere, with characters you won't forget, and the book has been adapted as a series with unexpected elements that will make even the devil bite his lip.

the sea,the sea

The Sea, the Sea (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

The psychological novel The Sea, the Sea (1978) by British author Iris Murdoch follows Charles Arrowby, a self-obsessed playwright and stage director who retires to a remote coastal area to write his memoirs. In 1978, the novel received one of the highest honors in English literature. It was awarded the Booker Prize. The book makes us consider both the pursuit of the good and the measurement of human change.”And I saw into the vast soft interior of the universe which was slowly and gently turning itself inside out. I went to sleep, and in my sleep I seemed to hear a sound of singing.”

the bone people

The Bone People: A Novel

Keri Hulme's novel The Bone People won the Booker Prize in 1984. The novel is an unusual love story. The manner in which it is told, the plot, and the love style distinguish it. This is not a love story, but rather one filled with violence, horror, and twisted emotions. But at the heart of the story are three people who are trying to figure out what love is and how to find it. The book is divided into two parts: the first is the interaction of the characters with one another, and the second is their individual journeys.

a-fraction-of-the-whole

A Fraction of the Whole: A Novel

The book is structured in such a way that it begins in a prison and ends on a plane. Between these two locations, an unforgettable story is unfolding. The book is constantly moving. He has a fun narration style and a very different narrative style. It has a beauty that is distinct from cliché novels, and it is impossible not to be drawn in by the author's narration. We claim that the book will permeate you.

the white hotel

The White Hotel

D.M. Thomas, who had previously been known only for his poems and translations of Russian poets such as Yevtushenko, came of age as a master novelist with the publication of The White Hotel in 1980. The novel was nominated for the 1981 Booker Prize as well as the 1981 Cheltenham Prize. The story is based primarily on an erotic diary and letters between the female narrator and Sigmund Freud. It is also referred to as Freud's examination of the narrator's case history. The novel, which received widespread attention, particularly in the United States, was regarded as one of the most successful examples of postmodernism in literature.

Great Granny Webster (New York Review Books Classics)

If we say Great Granny Webster's book is Caroline Blackwood's masterpiece, we would be giving the book its due. Heir to the Guinness fortune, Blackwood was known as a magnificent beauty and a dazzling storyteller long before she made her name as a writer. The autobiographical novel reveals the gothic madness behind the scenes in the grand houses of the aristocracy, witnessed through the ruthless eyes of an orphaned teenage girl. A sufficient dose of ridiculousness is blended with the contributions of the colorful cast of characters.

the comfort of strangers

The Comfort of Strangers

We recommend Ian McEwan's classic novel about love, violence, and obsession, which won the Booker Prize and was a Sunday Times best-seller. Colin and Mary are a couple whose intimacy knows no bounds. They get lost one evening in a maze of streets and canals while on vacation in a nameless city. However, the plot of the book will change after the couple disappears. A friendly man named Robert appears out of nowhere, wandering down a deserted street, and invites the two to his bar for wine and conversation. You won't believe how the book concludes with a surprise ending.

disgrace

Disgrace: A Novel

In this gripping novel, which won the Booker Prize in 1999, you witness a society undergoing violent and intense transformation. You will read about South Africa in general. You will read the story of Professor Lurie, who has been married twice and divorced, has a daughter, and is fifty-two years old, examining both personal transformations and social pains. Professor Lurie, who was forced to leave his school due to an affair with a female student, questions what it means to be human.

the reluctant fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalist: A Novel

The book is superbly constructed, and we also present you with a brilliantly written piece. The dose of keeping the reader wondering in the book, which was also filmed with the same name, is so measured that we don't even understand how he did it. The end result is a story about extremely high blood pressure. You can be certain that it will be a more exciting novel than any suspense novel you have read in a long time, with subtle and elegant analysis of the state of the world in which we live.
