    "K is for Kesey! There's a decent chance you've already seen the movie, which is also a classic, but the novel is far more rewarding to take in, if you ask me. Kesey's writing is great, and he tells more than you could possibly fit in a film adaptation. If you somehow have NOT seen the movie, read the book first. Either way, read the book. "

    "I personally have never heard of The Historian, nor Elizabeth Kostova. However, this particular book has 4/5 stars on Amazon with over 2000 reviews so it must be very popular with a lot of people. I'm not sure that it is the BEST book by an author whose names start with K, but it is probably up there."

    "Of all authors that have a last name that starts with K, this book sure is a doozy. It's a fantastic read about growing up in a time of racism. The main character is at a crucial point in her life, growing up, and becoming a woman, all while having to deal with various social injustices, including the death of her mother"

    "The Poisonwood Bible is a thoughtful look at colonialism and upheaval in the Congo. It deals with freedom, aggression and the things that bind people together. It's an important story for anyone who thinks westerners can come in and "better" the lives of others by reshaping them in their own image, and a great read in general. "
