The Great Gatsby -Stunning writing, I was dazzled and charmed from start to finish.
A walk in the Woods - Full of wit, I am now very much interested in walking the Appalachian Trail at some point.
The Alchemist -Not a book I would normally pick up due to it's religious content. But that's the joy of travelling, you start books that you would never normally try due to the limit of material available. Being the only English book on offer at a hostel on the Everest trek I gave the Alchemist a go. What I gained from it was a charming tale of never giving up on your dreams not matter how hard they might be to accomplish.
"Anyone can work magic, anyone can reach his goals, if he can think, if he can wait, if he can fast".
Inspiring read from Hermann Hesse
Life of Pi - A magical tale that for me dragged a little in the middle, but the ending's twist made up for it.
