SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE) --Jun. 24, 2014-- (NASDAQ: AMZN)—Today Amazon.com announced its annual list of the Best Books of the Year So Far, a midyear retrospective that highlights the must-reads released between January and June 2014.
The Amazon Books Editors’ picks for the Top 10 Best Books of the Year So Far are:
1.Updike: This biography of the American master goes far beyond simple chronology of this complex (and often paradoxical) character, layering on the lit crit where his real life bled into his novels. Detailed and compulsively readable, Updike is essential for admirers, and illuminating for anyone with an interest in literature.
2. The Book of Unknown Americans: A novel: A novel by Cristina Henríquez: Henríquez’s powerful novel captures readers with the quiet beauty of her characters and their profoundly rendered experiences as immigrants in America. Following nine families who arrived in the States from South and Central America, Henríquez has crafted a novel that is inspiring, tragic, brave, and unforgettable.
3. Redeployment: The strength of Klay’s stories, all about the Iraq War or its aftermath, lies in his unflinching, un-PC point of view, even for the soldiers he so clearly identifies with and admires. These stories are at least partly autobiographical, and yet, for all their verisimilitude, they’re also shaped by an undefinable thing called art.
4. Euphoria: Loosely based on the life of the anthropologist Margaret Mead, Euphoria is both romantic and intelligent. It is the best kind of historical novel—the kind that will send readers running to learn more about its real-life inspiration.
