New York Times Book Lists
The 10 Best Books of 2015
What follows are their lists of the fiction and nonfiction books that most moved, excited and enlightened them in — books that, in their own ways, are perhaps not finished saying what they have to say. Because they review different titles, it is impossible for them to compile a single unanimous Top 10 list. They have favorites, however, and are happy to have a chance to list them here. There is also a list from Janet Maslin, who has stepped down from full-time reviewing but remains a frequent contributor of reviews to The Times. Read the review.

As the narrative suggests, nothing recovers from a bomb: not our humanity, not our politics, not even our faith. Propelled by a vision that is savage, brutal and relentless, McGuire relates the tale of an opium-addicted 19th-century Irish surgeon who encounters a vicious psychopath on board an Arctic-bound whaling ship.
