Empire of the Sun

J.G. Ballard’s 1984 novel Empire of the Sun is currently one most searched for books on the internet.

The reason for the sudden search surge on a 24 year old book is probably due to Christian Bale’s (who acted in the Steven Spielberg adaptation of the book) current woes.

The book itself, however, is quite a treat and deserves a little attention having won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and was selected as one of the 200 Best Novels in English since 1950 in “The Modern Library.”
