100 Notable Books of 2014 – NYTimes.com

100 Notable Books of 2014 – NYTimes.com. I realize that 2014 is now six days past. Yet I have so many 2014 book lists to review and reference yet! And because the NY Times book reviews are so often referenced and respected, I post this one today (it was first posted Dec.2, 2014).

It is a mixed bag of books, and yet I find some intriguing titles here, as I am sure you will too. And, as always, lists such as these are a good glimpse into our modern culture. For books too, are a window into the soul of humanity, fallen as well as redeemed.

Here is their brief introduction, and a few titles that caught my attention:

Elephant CompanyThe year’s notable fiction, poetry and nonfiction, selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review. DEEP DOWN DARK: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free. By Héctor Tobar. (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $26.) Tobar graphically recounts the quandaries faced by the victims of Chile’s 2010 mine disaster. ELEPHANT COMPANY: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II. By Vicki Constantine Croke. (Random House, $28.) A rich portrait of a fascinating Englishman in extraordinary times.
