Lemuel Originally Answered: Holocaust books, any suggestions for good books to read?
I don't know about having pictures, but The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom is an excellent book. Her family and she were thrown into Concentration Camps because they were Christians who sheltered Jewish people; shielding them from the Nazis. This is Corrie's story. There are others, of course, like Bitter Freedom: Memoirs of a Holocaust Survivor by Jafa Wallach; A Promise to Remember: The Holocaust in the Words and Voices of its Survivors by Michael Berenbaum (which has illustrations); or Tell Them We Remember: The Story of the Holocaust by Susan D. Bachrach, United States Holocaust Museum. The description for the last book (from Amazon) is "This ambitious work, produced in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, is the book equivalent of a museum tour. Each spread investigates a different aspect of the Holocaust: the rise of the Nazi party, the Wannsee conference, the murder of the mentally ill, persecution of homosexuals and gypsies, and the destruction of the Jews. While unusually comprehensive, the text does not dominate the book. Thoughtfully chosen, uncommon documentary photographs overwhelm the pages with their pathos and horror (a woman, sitting on a park bench marked "for Jews only," hides her face from the camera; grinning children pose shortly before their mass execution in a Lithuanian shtetl; a killing squad trains its rifles on a Soviet Jew perched above a ditch filled with corpses). Individual experience is literally marginalized here, as the experiences of 20 young persons are telegraphed episodically alongside the body of the text. There is much to compel thought, but there is little attempt at synthesis-rather, each entry, textual or illustrative, seems to compete for the reader's attention." You may also appreciate Quisling: A Study in Treachery by Hans Fredrik Dahl. The description from Amazon is "The word "Quisling" has been used as a synonym for "traitor" or "treachery." The original Vidkun Quisling (1887-1945) was a gifted Norwegian army officer who sided with the Nazis on the first day of Norway's entry into the Second World War. Dahl's biography is the first to use a complete range of source material from Nordic, German, Italian and Russian archives, and family archives now in the United States tracing Quisling's career through to the drama of his trial and execution for high treason in 1945." There are a lot more, of course, but I hope this helps.

There is this really good series of books that are not well known. I recommended them to a friend, she reluctantly took it. A week later she finished the book and said she was getting the next one tomorrow. She loved it. The book is by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. The books are part of the EDGE chronicles. These are the first three. -Beyond the Deepwoods -Stormchaser -Midnight Over Sanctaphrax There are other ones too, but those are the main ones.

Have you read any of John Grisham's book...great. He wrote the book A Time To Kill...(movie with Samuel L. Jackson), Sue Grafton writes very mature murder mysteries...not too mature...they are all an alphabet...A is for Alibi, B is for Bribe C is........ and Nora Roberts is child friendly. Come to my house I have over 500 books....just read for years....and most of these books you can find at yard sales or thrift stores for $1 or less.

The Inheritance books: Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini are very good. They are fantasy/adventure/action with dragons, elves, dwarves...that sort of thing. They rock.

Babe Originally Answered: I want to read books that are written beautifully, poetically, dreamy, dark. can anyone suggest a good read?
The best successors to Edgar Allan Poe, in my opinion, are H. P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith. Their writing is *very* beautifully written, poetic, dreamy & dark. i commend to your attention the Ballantine editions of Clark Ashton Smith's short stories (edited by Lin Carter) -- Zothique, Hyperborea, Xiccarp & Poseidonis. You can read a lot of them on-line here: http://www.eldritchdark.com/writings/sho... You can read H. P. Lovecraft's tales on-line here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/nec/hpl/inde... i especially recommend his "Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath". i'm especially fond of "The Silver Key," "Through The Gates of the Silver Key" (the latter in collaboration with E. Hoffman Price -- *not* on that site, on-line, it appears), "The Quest of Iranon," "The Nameless City," & "The Strange High House In The Mist". The Lin Carter edited Ballantine volumes -- "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath" & "The Doom That Came To Sarnath" are well worth tracking down. Personally, i prefer holding a *book* in my hands & reading, rather than reading the material on a computer screen. Some of the Stories in Robert Chambers's "The King In Yellow" volume -- like "The Yellow Sign" & "The Repairer of Reputations" would probably appeal to you, too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_in... And C. A. Moore's Northwest Smith stories -- like "Shambleau" & "Black Thirst". You *really* don't want to miss out on *those*! (i probably reread this volume more than any of the others... well, the Ace volume that i *have*. *This* volume has 2 more stories than the one i reread -- & i'm simply going to have to get a copy just to get those 2 additional stories!) http://www.sfsite.com/04a/ne293.htm Also -- A. Merritt's *The Face In The Abyss* & *The Ship of Ishtar* are very poetically written, & perhaps are becoming less well know, contemporarily. *The Face In The Abyss* is the Merritt volume i reread most often.
