Eat, Pray, Love
Author
Elizabeth Gilbert
Review
This has become the standard "chick lit" memoir/travelogue. Gilbert's prose is touching and witty, and she makes the reader feel that she is traveling alongside her. The spirituality of the journey is infused throughout.

The Postman Always Rings Twice
Author
James M. Cain
Review
This classic of noir fiction is the predecessor to the "hard boiled" detective novels of the 1930s and 1940s. The illicit romance shocked many readers when it was first published in 1934, and it ends like a Greek tragedy.
