Read any good books lately? March 1, 2018

Many of us use our holiday to catch up on the books we’ve been meaning to read but haven't gotten around to. So load up your e-reader or weigh down your suitcase with the Caribtours team's pick of the best books for your next holiday. Now where’s that sun lounger…

100
'The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared' by Jonas Jonasson
“I was surprised at how funny I found this story about a one hundred year old man who dodges his own birthday party and goes on an adventure, making friends and enemies along the way. The ending is so sweet!” 

Husbands
'The Husband’s Secret' by Liane Moriarty
“This book was really thought provoking and I kept trying to work out what I would do if I were in the same situation as the main character. Definitely a page turner.” Abi, Sales

MARTIAN
'The Martian' by Andy Weir
“A gripping story about a man left behind after a failed mission to Mars. His fellow astronauts think he is dead until NASA discover evidence that he has survived. His chances of making it are slim but he uses resources left from previous missions and even tries to grow potatoes. Mark is a very likeable character and you really want him to make it.”

Cloud
'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchell
“This book is remarkable for the way the author manages to knit together six different stories, moving from the distant past into a post-apocalyptic future and then back again. It took me a while to get into it, and to get my head round what on earth was going on, but once it all clicked into place I couldn’t put it down until I finished it!” 

Cleo
'Cleopatra’s Daughter' by Michelle Moran
“Bringing to life the story of an Egyptian princess who, following the death of her mother Cleopatra, finds herself headed to Rome for a life that she did not choose, her fate in the hands of Augustus, who went on to become the first Roman Emperor.” Nicola, Product

Wife
'The Man Who Forgot His Wife' by John O’Farrell
“A hilarious and heart-warming story about life and marriage, with an insight into the mind of a man going through a mid-life crisis. Perfect for light summer reading.” Natasha, Aviation

Jenkins
'Roy Jenkins' by John Campbell
“A really engaging story, tracing the life and career of one of Britain’s most colourful politicians at a time when politics was actually interesting. Jenkins was both historically important and something of a paradox. A stalwart of the labour movement, from a working class, South Wales mining area, yet a gourmand with a taste for good claret, long lunches with a string of high society mistresses. He was a committed Europhile, the most liberal Home Secretary of the modern era and envisioned New Labour 20 years early.”

Help
'The Help' by Kathryn Stockett
“I really loved this book as, although it’s a novel, I felt like I was learning something about the history of the African-American maids in Mississippi in the early 1960s. The film is also really good.” Abi, Sales

Goldfinch
'The Goldfinch' by Donna Tartt
“This feels like quite a dark book but it’s really well written and I connected with the characters really quickly. You can feel Theo’s anxiety throughout the book and his relationship with his Ukrainian best friend, Boris, is one of the highlights.”

Way Of The World
'The Way of the World' by Nicolas Bouvier
“This book is the travel diary of two Swiss guys who went on a road trip from Serbia to Afghanistan in the ‘50s via Turkey and Iran. Apparently it’s quite well known in the French-speaking world, but the English translation not so much. It’s a little bit like a Francophone version of Kerouac's ‘On the road’.”
