The world of fiction is certainly a big one. Choosing great reads is a hard decision and in reality everyone would choose something different. Here at The Cheapest Life Insurance we asked some of our team to put forward some suggestions of their favourite reads. Here is our top five…
- Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. This book is about a family of five whose middle daughter Susie, 14, goes missing on her way home from school. Her new neighbour George Harvey has planned to take the life of Susie and succeeds as he persuades her to visit his underground hideaway. Susie watches her family from her own personal heaven as they try to find her, grieve for her, move apart, get closer and grow up. The book become an instant bestseller and was also made into a film. This book grabs you from the start and as you journey with Susie and her family until the very end the journey is emotional and gripping.
- The Gift by Cecilia Ahern. Main character Lou is constantly battling the clock and he’s always wishing he could be in two places at once. Gabe, a homeless man who sits outside Lou’s busy office changes Lou’s world unimaginably. This story is one which grabs you with its pure magic and subtle messages about what’s important in life.
- Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling. The final part in the Harry Potter series. It’s hard to find which one slots most perfectly into our top 5. After some deliberation we chose this book as it represents the end of what has been such an epic journey. This book sees the final battle between Harry and Voldemort. Along the way there is tragedy, fighting, love and friendships as we see the magical world divided into good and evil. This book marks an emotional farewell to characters we have grown to know and love. This book can appeal to a widest of age groups and will go down in history as the final part of what can only be described as an amazing story.
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. What a classic? Every member of the team here at The Cheapest Life Insurance knows the tale of the very hungry caterpillar who eats his way into becoming a beautiful butterfly. It seems heart-warming to think that somewhere in the world right at this very moment are people buying The Very Hungry Caterpillar or reading it for the very first time. This story is for everyone and remains an unmoving classic on many of our bookshelves.
- Dracula by Bram Stocker. Vampires have been a thing of fascination for many many years but this is a classic. Written over 100 years ago the book is written in the style of a journal, that of Jonathan Harker and his soon to be wife Mina Murray. This book builds in suspense and is certainly worth reading, vampire fan or not.
Whatever your taste in books, the power of losing yourself in another world is unchanging.
