When was the last time a novel charmed you? Hemingway famously said, "all you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know". Here at the Novel Encounter, we keep it simple. No cover art, no critic reviews, no plot summary. Pick a book based on a significant sentence and have yourself a literary adventure. Our mission is to introduce stellar, hand-picked novels - whether it makes you laugh out loud in a public space, traps you to the edge of your seat, or breaks your heart in a way only a lover could.
