    The successor to one of the most important books of the century, a challenge to old ideas that have sustained inequality for centuries.
  4. Evaristo BernardineNidottu englanti
    A polyphonic novel about 12 girls, women or other whose lives more or less intertwine with each other. Full of empathy, understanding, friendship and grace. If you're interested in race, feminism, intersectionality and or women in Britain, it's a must read. If you enjoy books about friendships between women, you won't be disappointed either. - Outi, Hki
  5. Rutherford AdamSidottu englanti
    We have noticed that mainly young women buy this book? Maybe someone else outside this group could try it too? - Helsinki store

    Entertaining anthology of travel writings from 38 cities, from Berlin to Vienna, written by famous travellers, from Marco Polo to Mark Twain.
  9. Heti SheilaNidottu englanti
    This novel (Heti is really stretching the concept though) is 300 pages of going back and forth: do I want a baby or not? It's a fresh take on a subject almost every woman has to think about and it feels important. -Outi, Hki
  10. Rooney SallyNidottu englanti
    Rooney writes in a way that is so effortless and yet punctual. Her characters can be frustrating and annoying but they feel like flesh and blood. They almost feel like your real life friends. Such a pleasure to read. -Outi, Hki
  11. Snyder TimothyNidottu englanti
    The rise of fake news and far right politics should be examined as well as the decline of democracies. Interesting, important and scary... it seems almost too easy to take a turn to unfreedom. - Outi, Hki
  12. Chabon MichaelNidottu englanti
    Chabon returns to form with an epic story of his "grandfather". Funny, tragic, touching- often all three at once. Book of the year!

    - Ismo, Helsinki
  13. Figes OrlandoNidottu englanti
    Jos luet eläissäsi vain yhden kirjan Venäjän vallankumouksista, Venäjästä tai historiasta ylipäätään, on tässä vahva kandidaatti. Valtava skaalassaan, tarkka analyysissään, humaani perspektiivissään. -Leo, Hki
