#NPTLost Round-up

This month was probably our trickiest topic to date. Whilst many readers discovered they had read more translated books than they realised, the rest of felt very #NPTLost!

April’s Twitter chat revolved around childhood books we discovered to be translations, how good they were and whether this should be credited to the author or the translator. Basically the jury is still out; perhaps they should both get the credit because at the end of the day, we all enjoyed them.

So, what were we reading?

Whilst old favourites like Stieg Larsson inevitably came up, a few different authors popped up as well.

  • Sophie’s Choice – Jostein Gaarder
  • Henning Mankell
  • Naruto/Manga
  • The Iraqi Christ
  • The Hunger Angel – Herta Muller
  • Grimms Fairy Tales

This month’s ‘Marmite’ books came in the form of Manga/Comics. Some love them, some hate them. To be honest, it took me a while to get my head around read a book in reverse. But the stories were funny and art work really draws your attention. However, I can see why it’s not everyone’s cup of tea!

Next month we’re onto Historical Fiction.

Join us on Twitter at 8pm on May 28th #NPTPast

Happy Reading
