    I loved "I Will Fly Again-the Restavek" by Lili Dauphin. I never knew it was common for Orphans in Haiti to be put to work as child slaves. This story is based on Lili's observation of life growing up in Haiti.

    I haven't heard of any of those books. I tried one I knew, and it wasn't on the list.
    I think I'll stick to my own judgment rather than what a database tells me.

    I put in: "The Way of Shadows" by Brent Weeks
    [Which is a rather thick novel. A medieval fantasy about wetboys, children's guilds, and a deteriorating society. It's also highly philosophical and plays with the concepts of justice, mercy, and vengeance.]

    It tells me I should read Bleach, the manga. >.>

    "Conan in the Hour of the Dragon"

    Of course, I can see why I would want to read that after finishing Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein.

    "- Conan, what is best in life?
    - To crush your enemies and pass over them in silence"
