VIB (Very Impressive Book) Picks

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books. 

 

 

Our latest selection is: 

Speak
by Louisa Hall
($27.99 Ecco Press)

"After finishing Speak, I saw a wonderful quote from Emily St. John Mandel in support of the book. Mandel's novel Station Eleven is one of my favorite books from last year, and Speak is my new favorite this year. The stories have little in common but feel similar in that each uniquely examines what it means to be human.

From a Puritan girl in the seventeenth century to Alan Turing's first inklings about artificial intelligence; through the creation of the first computer programs to a grim, not-to-distant future, I was captivated by the story's flow, both through history and consciousness. It is an amazing novel which speaks in voices so different and real, it was a pleasure to read each one."

– recommended by Heather Duncan, Tattered Cover Marketing Director
