6 for Sunday: Books Set in another Country.

‘A little bit a lot blog’ has set the prompt this Sunday of 6 books set in another country. See her list on her Blog

It is said you can virtually travel through books, that is handy as over last year since pandemic began, not been able to travel. Since pandemic restrictions started a year ago, what are some of the countries that books have virtually transported me to?

1. A woman is no Man by Etaf Rum features Palestine and the US.

2. The Geography of Friendship by Sally Piper. This was about three women repeating a trek in Australia; that they had done about 20 years earlier . Gradually as they walk there are flashbacks revealing traumatic events of their previous trek. Given on later walk the women are walking all day together it is unbelievable how little conversation they seem to have. There is suspense of waiting to know what happened on the earlier walk albeit know how that all three survived therefore it was a pleasant enough read just not particularly rich layers.

4. Over the Rooftops is about a young Jewish man being hidden in a Amsterdam attic during the Second World War.

3. The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Piccoult is mainly set in Egypt.

5. The Kite 🪁 Runner by Khaled Hosseini is set in Afghanistan.

6. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert is decided into three sections around a country; Italy, India and Indonesia.
