Fight Club, Coma, Not Without My Daughter

Here's a choice of books from our readers to keep you company over the weekend. Happy reading!

Fight Club
Chuck Palahnuik
The movie was gripping. If you've seen it, imagine slowing down each scene and focusing on each particle of the frame, one at a time. Shine a halogen lamp into the dark corners, examine each drop of blood under a microscope, turn over every particle of dirt till you know each bump on its surface. That's what it feels like the book is doing with a story you already know and experienced with a safety filter. The intensity is sometimes too graphic to bear. Initially the story carries you through in horrified fascination, unable as you are to look away. After awhile your insides start to feel bruised and sore and bleeding. I was glad when the story came to an end, it was such a blessed relief. And yet, do note, I didn't (couldn't) give up the book mid-way. Once you've begun, you're hooked. And that's SOMETHING to say for a book that competes with hundreds of others.

Coma
Robin Cook
Coma, a gripping book of the medical thriller genre, is about a third year medical student getting down to finding the cause of the recent deaths of otherwise healthy patients at the hospital she is a trainee at. Armed with a nail-biting finish, this book is definitely
unputdownable!

Not Without My Daughter
Betty Mahmoody
The book is a riveting story about the escape of Betty and her daughter, Mahtob from her husband, Moody’s home in Tehran, where they were imprisoned. Betty is an American trapped in oppressive male-dominated Iran. Read the book, to know how Betty braves all to reach America safely with her daughter.
