If you like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake, you'll like Ross Thomas. If you haven't read his books, you're in for a treat. Quite entertaining and amusing crime caper with many twists.

Re-issued as an Oxford World Classic, this is a diary of an ordinary, somewhat obtuse man at the end of the 19th century. His life is very ordinary, but he decides his diary should be published just like any person of import. Written by a former Gilbert and Sullivan troupe member and illustrated by his brother, it's an amusing book.

Good book on the Holocaust experience. Very short chapters, a fast read and appropriate for older children interested in this subject. I wanted to know more about what happened to them after the war so an epilogue would have been great.
