General Fiction Recommendations

Here is the spot for all of those fiction books that just don't seem to fit into any other category.

Please add a summary of each book, so those that are interested can find out a little more.  Also, please just add new recommendations and not posts that just say "I agree" and "I like that one too".  It will make it a lot easier for everyone to sort through the posts.

Well, I've read "THE THIRTEENTH TALE" and let me tell you. I LOVE to read. This is one of the best books I have ever read. The writting is so eloquent and beautiful, you dont want to put the book down. My father who is 57 read it and he loved it!!

Its about this girl who finds a book thats "almost" finished in her dads antique book store who, ironically, ends up meeting the author of the book. The author is telling the story....OH I cant ruin it!!!!! You will love it and you will keep it just because you will like it so much, like I have done. Check it out on the internet.

I love Wally Lamb. She's come undone is about a woman that has every posible thing that could go wrong happen to her and This much I know is true is about twins and one is a skitofranic the other takes care of him. They are excellent books
