For more than 25 years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993 to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out lifesaving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

This book demonstrates the two extreme sides of humanity.On one side,brutal dictators,barbaric lunatics,sadistic regimes killing innocent civilians,women,children,elderlies indiscriminately versus a Saint or an angel called David Nott who dedicated his life and skills to saving lives and healing people and reducing the suffering.A truly inspiring story,a rare, brave and humble human being whose dedication to humanitarian work gives hope to future generations.Listening to the book read by the author himself was really a wonderful experience.if only this miserable world had several David Notts,humanity would be in a happier place.

This is a very annoying book.The story goes on and on and on and the end nothing happens.There is no plot whatsoever,just a bunch of strangers talking to each other.The book could be easily summarised by one page.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

The Middle East is a critically important area of our world. And, with its current prominence in international affairs, media images of the Middle East reach us on a daily basis. Much media coverage, however, is incomplete at best, failing to take account of either the complexities or the historical background of this pivotal region. For most of us, the real story of the Middle East remains untold. What made this crucial geopolitical area what it is today?

Survivor, genius, perfumer, killer: This is Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. He is abandoned on the filthy streets of Paris as a child, but grows up to discover he has an extraordinary gift: A sense of smell more powerful than any other human's. Soon, he is creating the most sublime fragrances in all the city. Yet there is one odour he cannot capture. It is exquisite, magical: The scent of a young virgin. And to get it he must kill. And kill. And kill...
