Reviewer Stella shares her picks for 2017…
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage – Philip Pullman
As good, if not better, than Northern Lights, the first in His Dark Materials. The second in this, his latest series, in still in his head, I think.
Ink and Bone, Paper and Fire, and Ash and Quill – Rachel Caine
A terrific trilogy about a world where the Librarians know and control everything – not for the good, though.
A Man in Full – Tom Wolfe
This is one for the grown-ups. A Trump-like character, set in the deep South, with a background of real estate. Cleverly created and frighteningly relevant.
