Historical Novels

From Eve's Alexandria, I now want to look into the following...

A Thousand Orange Trees
The Pope's Rhinoceros
The Dream of Scipio
Cloud Atlas
Wave Theory of Angels
Music and Silence
Oscar and Lucinda

Cloud Atlas is fun, Oscar and Lucinda is brilliant but heartbreaking. And not in a warm fuzzy way either. Perhaps chilling is a better word. Warm and fuzzy isn't a pre-requisite but I have to admit I admire Carey but don't actually like him. Interesting list!
