I've heard the White Tiger is very good.

I'm debating tackling Les Mis before the movie to refresh myself.

#2 ,3 and 4 were books read in my Book Club . Forever by Peter Hammill is one of my alltime favorite books .

Codes was written by a very good friend that I've known since high school .Its a novel about the Native Americans .
