BBAW:: Forgotten Treasure

Some novels do get ignored at the expense of the others. And there are some authors which are completely forgotten. Despite being good story tellers. Maybe the hype of certain books for a long time pushes the better books or better writers into oblivion.

Talking about the past, P G Wodehouse needs to be read by the present readers, who are hooked on YA genre. Once they begin his books, they will want more and more. And mind you he wrote more than 90 books. I am not saying that one go back to the classics but there are so many authors to explore and not only the new ones.

There are some new ones too, that have been not been as popular as others. T. L. Hines is one such author. He writes noir fiction and those are really good. He too needs to be widely read. Do try him. You can check out my review of two of his books:
The Unseen by T. L. Hines*
Faces In The Fire by T. L. Hines**

I've read one book by him, 'Damsel in Distress' and I'm definitely going to read more.

I'll have to keep these authors in mind.

P G Wodehouse, I've heard of but not read yet. But I haven't heard of T. L. Hines.

I'll have to take your recommendations into account.

I read TL Hines' The Dead Whisper On. It was a pageturner!

Great choices.

I honestly tried with Wodehouse. That is, to get hold of one of his books. But the library didn't have any and I wasn't sure I should try harder (i.e. buy it).

Alyce said...

I've been meaning to read some PG Wodehouse books. Thanks for the reminder!

Care said...

I've actually read a bio of Wodehouse and have still not read any of his books! Shame on me. He's been on my toberead list forever it seems.

I heart PG Wodehouse. And Bertie. And Jeeves.

Veens said...

I like Wodehouse too!

Jenners said...

I've never tried either one ... but I'm willing to give P.G. Wodehouse a try! Any author who has 90 books is worth checking out ... at least you'd have a huge back catalog to explore!
