12 books that you read without interruption to sleep

Daniel Keese, "Flowers for Algernon"
A science fiction story about a mentally backward cleaner, Charlie, who became a "laboratory rat" in an experiment to increase intelligence - an experiment that at first seemed brilliant.

Arthur Haley, Airport

Difficult weather conditions, hard work behind the scenes of the airport, personal and industrial troubles are woven into one knot, and the feeling of the approaching tragedy keeps in suspense until the last pages.
Joanne Harris, "Five Quarter Orange"
The beginning of this story reminds of “Puss in Boots”: the mother of three children, after her death, bequeathed her son to the farm, her elder sister - the wine cellar, and only the culinary book made up by the deceased - and the truffle in a jar of olive oil became the legacy of the younger, favorite of Framboise. And now the heroine is trying to “read between the lines” ... The book, which the English writer dedicated to her grandfather, tells about the era of the Second World War, about growing up, family secrets - and does it excitingly and temperamentally.

Anna Borisova, "Vremena goda"

Guy de Maupassant, "Dear Friend"

That, combined with complete unscrupulousness and an adventurous vein, opens up brilliant perspectives for the hero: women help him make a career in journalism, bring wealth and title ... It’s impossible to break away from the story of a “dear friend” - one of the best French writers of the late XIX century "Holds" the reader.
Alan Alexander Milne, “Two”
The novel, written by the author of the famous "Winnie the Pooh" is considered one of the gems of English humorous prose.

And with each new day his life, as well as the life of his completely “unglamorous” spouse Sylvia, more and more resembles a “comedy of mistakes.”
Winston Groom, Forrest Gump
