Gone Girl
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (2000s)
I would definitely recommend this book. I was totally sucked in to this story about a missing wife and a sort of grieving husband; right when I thought I had the story figured the whole thing did a total 180. I read this book really fast because I was just dying to know how it ended. I can't wait for the movie! -- Added by lewiscm on 02/18/2014

Alone on the Ice: The Greatest Survival Story in the History of Exploration
Alone on the Ice: The Greatest Survival Story in the History of Exploration by David Roberts (1910s)
A historical account of what early Antartica exploration was like. I'll tell you - scary, dangerous, surreal, isolated. This book cemented into my mind that I never want to visit Antartica... ever. -- Added by lewiscm on 02/18/2014

12 Years a Slave
12 Years a Slave by Solomon Northup (Other)
Firsthand account of slavery during the 1850s. I enjoyed reading about Solomon's journey from free man to slave to free man again. Fascinating and, at times, gripping. -- Added by lewiscm on 02/18/2014

Between Man and Beast
Between Man and Beast by Monte Reel (1910s)
As an anthropologist and scientist, I enjoyed hearing about the discovery of gorillas and what it meant for the theory of evolution during the Victorian Age. Very interesting historical account of what African exploration was like during this era, and how the general public perceived the idea that humans and apes share a common ancestor. -- Added by lewiscm on 02/18/2014

Allegiant (Divergent Trilogy, Book 3)
Allegiant (Divergent Trilogy, Book 3) by Veronica Roth (2000s)
I'm not sure I would recommend this book to others. It was the third book in the trilogy, so I felt compelled to finish it out. But, it was by far the worst book in the series and left more questions than answers. By all means, finish out the series, and then join me in hoping they do a better job with the movie. -- Added by lewiscm on 02/18/2014

I absolutely agree. I loved the first book which was great and the second was fairly good as well. I was so looking forward to the last one and it was terrible - finished it just to complete the trilogy. And the ending was so unexpected and unnecessary, in my opinion. Difficult to believe that the same author wrote all three books. -- Joy on 02/18/2014
