A list of translated books recs

Remember that post I did about translated books a while ago? Well, I’ve put together a list of all the books y’all recommended to me, just in case anybody else was interested, too! Book links go to Amazon, and if you click on people’s names you’ll go to their blogs.

Lenore recommended Sebastian Japrisot, a French author. She particularly liked his Trap For Cinderella.

avisannschild recommended two graphic novels, Persepolis and The Rabbi’s Cat (although she hasn’t read that last one), as well as Isabel Allende’s The House of the Spirits and Paula.

Cindy S (no blog linked) recommended Kirino Natsuo’s Out, Grotesque and Real World, and Jose Carlos Somoza’s books Art of Murder, The Athenian Murders and Zig Zag, which are all thrillers/mysteries.

Clare said The Count of Monte Cristo was a must-read, although I’m still debating that myself.

Christy recommended Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Yiddish author who translated his books into English himself, which is pretty nifty. The Family Moskat and The Slave are two of his books that she likes the most.

Sarah said Battle Royale is very entertaining, and The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo is “amazing.”

I myself recommend Emile Zola’s <a href="The Ladies’ Paradise, Arturo Perez-Reverte’s The Club Dumas, and the Pippi Longstocking books!

Thanks to everyone who recommended books!

  1. I always forget Pippi Longstocking wasn’t written in English already. I just looked it up on Wikipedia and had my mind blown by the fact that the original books’ titles were not, in fact, Pippi Longstocking, but Pippi Langstrump. :p
