Yann Martell - Life of Pi
Brought up in India 14 year old Piscine Patel (Pi) sets off for Canada by boat, together with all the animals of the zoo his parents owned. Halfway the Pacific the boat wrecks and Pi is forced to survive in a lifeboat with a hyena, a monkey, a zebra and a tiger called Richard. That would be bad enough, but from here on things get weirder: the animals start slaughtering each other until Richard the tiger and Pi are left alone …

Nick Hornby - How to be Good 
Katie Carr, a London doctor, wife and mother tries to be good. She cares about people from the Third World and the homeless and tries to raise her spoiled children with a conscience. She also tries to put up with her utterly bitter and cynical husband David in a marriage in which neither of them is happy.
Then – just when Katie more or less has decided to leave her husband - Dr. Goodnews enters into their life and within no time transforms David into an idealistic do-gooder, donating the children’s computer to a poorhouse, giving away the family’s Sunday dinner to homeless people and inviting runaways to stay in the guestroom.

Raymond Chandler - The Big Sleep
Los Angeles Private Investigator Philip Marlowe is working for Mr. Sternwood, an old and crippled oil tycoon in a wheelchair who is being blackmailed. He wants Marlowe to solve this problem once and for all, but his two wild daughters Carmen and Vivian cause Marlowe much trouble.
In the course of working the case, Marlowe uncovers underground pornography shops, blackmailers, gambling dens, a couple of murders, and other seedy events in the booming town of Los Angeles.
