Five Books Every Man Should Read – From Jacqueline Harvey

This September we’re launching Operation GMR, Get Men Reading. To celebrate, we’ve asked some of our favourite Australian authors to give us Five Books Every Man Should Read.

Today’s guest is the one of Australia’s most loved children’s authors, Jacqueline Harvey.


Bridge to Terabithia

by Katherine Paterson

As a children’s author it seems only right to offer up a children’s book as my first suggestion.

This one’s a classic about an unlikely friendship between a young boy and girl and his courage when faced with immense loss.  All boys should read this.

The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak

This book offers a very different take on a much written about subject; World War Two.

The characters are beautifully drawn and the storyline compelling.

The Secret Keeper

by Kate Morton

This book has a great plot, fabulous twist, strong female characters and when I recommended it to my husband (who loves Lee Child and Vince Flynn) he couldn’t put it down.

Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

This is a big story of tremendous determination in the face of extraordinary adversity.  Martel takes the reader on an incredible journey.

And in my humble opinion the movie was great too.

Anything by Lee Child

I’m throwing in a sixth suggestion – because every man loves a hero and Lee Child does the hero, action, intrigue genre better than most.
