Alfred A. Like the best of Dickens, the novel is packed with incident and populated with vivid characters. At its heart is the unwavering belief that come what may, art can save us by lifting us above ourselves. Demonstrating the agile style and theatrical bravado of her much-admired Jackson Brodie mystery novels, Atkinson takes on nothing less than the evils of midth-century history and the nature of death as she moves back and forth in time, fitting together versions of a life story for a heroine who keeps dying, then being resurrected — and sent off in different, but entirely plausible, directions. Beneath the comedy, though, Saunders writes with profound empathy, and this impressive collection advances his abiding interest in questions of class, power and justice. Blinder criticizes both the Bush and Obama administrations, especially for letting Lehman Brothers fail, but he also praises them for taking steps to save the country from falling into a serious depression. Their response to the near disaster, Blinder says, was far better than the public realizes.

Year-end "best of" lists are great for things like pop culture moments , celebrity snafus, or provocative photographs. But when it comes to a best-of list for books, you're not looking for cheap entertainment or nostalgia as you click through. You want to know what you should have been reading during those commutes you spent scrolling through Instagram or playing Candy Crush. A book is an investment, both of time and money. And while everyone—from blogging bibliophiles to The New York Times —is entitled to their opinion, the number of best-of lists out there and the variance among them has left us wondering just what books are worth bringing with us into the new year. To find "the best of the best ofs," we decided not only to aggregate a sampling of lists, but also to assign points based on the selectivity of each list.
