My E-Book Collection - Opinions Welcome

Description
I have TONS of e-books, inherited from my mother and father, and although some of them are right up my alley, some of them I know nothing about at all. Opinions about what's good and what's not would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

bluepiano: Well-written & intelligent though at bottom it's chick-lit. Read it when you want a bit of educated froth.

aulsmith: I've read Affinity (good) and Night Watch (way over written). If you don't care about historical lesbians, you could give this a miss.

elkiedee: This is excellent but it is very sad and it might not be the best book to read if you're grieving. When my dad had left my mum she made the mistake of seeking recommendations for reading from her father - he suggested this and Miss Lonelyhearts. Not sure what he was thinking!
bluepiano: Very good indeed.

Dilara86: Mahfouz is one of my favourite authors. This is the 1st novel of the Cairo trilogy, about the life of a Cairo family, from the time of the British occupation to the 40s.

bluepiano : I found it unreadably tedious & maddeningly pointless, but a lot of people hold it in very high regard so it might be to your taste.
