Rude not to at that price. I shall add it to all of the other history books, e-books and Audible books that I haven't read either....

This is a magnificent book. Quick read and doesn’t share too much in common with the film. Recommended.

Occasionally dropped to 99p for a day in the last 8 years - now 99p again (for a day?).

The Forest - by Edward Rutherfurd - a massive 900 pages

Quote:
  • Hugely impressive (Mail on Sunday)
  • Exerts a hypnotic charm (Daily Mail)
  • Fresh, exciting and insightful (The Independent)

A most interesting saga to read of the New Forest and its peoples ranging from the beginning of time to the present day.

It is a unique and vast area in southern Britain of forest and open heath populated with ponies and deer with hamlets of people living off the land. The families there, their feuds, quarrels, loves are followed over generations isolated from the rest of the world except when impinged by momentous events such as the Monmouth rebellion and the dissolution of the ministries by Edward VIII.

Due to its coastline facing France it also has also been impinged by trade and smuggling. What with stories of betrayal, treason and trial that results in family enmities for generations, it is a tale of fascinating interest and of excitement.
And another of his books seems to have been 99p since 2017 -

Paris - by Edward Rutherfurd - 800 pages

Quote:
  • "A tour de force . . . his most romantic and richly detailed work of fiction yet."
  • "Fantastic . . . as grand and engrossing as Paris itself."
  • "This saga is filled with historical detail and a huge cast of characters, fictional and real, spanning generations and centuries."
  • "Rutherfurd, the undisputed master of the multigenerational historical saga, shine in this sumptuous urban epic."
  • "There is suspense, intrigue and romance around every corner."

Two by a couple of my favourite authors:

The Fireman - Joe Hill [99p]

Quote:
Nobody knew where the virus came from.
FOX News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s.
MSNBC said sources indicated it might've been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by culty Christian types fixated on the Book of Revelation.
CNN reported both sides.
While every TV station debated the cause, the world burnt.

Pregnant school nurse, HARPER GRAYSON, had seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind the school.
With the epic scope of THE PASSAGE and the emotional impact of THE ROAD, this is one woman's story of survival at the end of the world.
The City & The City - China Miéville [99p]

Quote:
With shades of Kafka and Philip K. Dick, Raymond Chandler and 1984, the multi-award winning The City & The City by China Miéville is a murder mystery taken to dazzling metaphysical and artistic heights.

'You can't talk about Miéville without using the word "brilliant".' – Ursula Le Guin, author of the Earthsea series.

When the body of a murdered woman is found in the extraordinary, decaying city of Beszel, somewhere at the edge of Europe, it looks like a routine case for Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad. But as he probes, the evidence begins to point to conspiracies far stranger, and more deadly, than anything he could have imagined. Soon his work puts him and those he cares for in danger. Borlú must travel to the only metropolis on Earth as strange as his own, across a border like no other.

First time 99p (at least since 2011) -

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - by Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner

I'm sure I've read it, but it's not showing as 'previously purchased' so I must have stumbled on the paperback or audiobook.

Only to read it’s free. They are £1 each to buy and own. Actually all 6 don’t really make up one whole book as each is only around 60 pages.

Not sure if this is a misprice, as each book separately is still a fiver. Highly rated, with 1000s of reviews. First time cheap, and now just 99p for 860 pages. Before buying, check you don't have the individual volumes (click author name).

The Lewis Trilogy: The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man and The Chessmen - by Peter May

Another home-isolation-beating 700+ pages for 99p. Plenty Amazon reviews state this is the best book they've ever read, and incredibly well-reviewed by the critics too.

A Little Life - by Hanya Yanagihara - Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015

Quote:
  • "A book unlike any other. . . . A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life. . . . A devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch's, a few sizes larger." --The Guardian
  • "A Little Life is unlike anything else out there. Over the top, beyond the pale and quite simply unforgettable." --The Independent
  • "Piercing. . . . an author with the talent to interrogate the basest and most beautiful extremes of human behaviour with sustained, bruising intensity." --The Times Literary Supplement
  • "Exquisite. . . . It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork--if anything that word is simply just too little for it." --San Francisco Chronicle
  • "Remarkable. . . . An epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects (and they are legion) will be measured. . . . A Little Life announces [Yanagihara] as a major American novelist." --The Wall Street Journal
  • "Drawn in extraordinary detail by incantatory prose. . . . Affecting and transcendent." --The Washington Post
  • "Exquisite. . . . The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship." --The New Yorker
