My last five:
Turns out we're going to war with Russia next year and nobody told me. I expected this to read like a documentary, given the author's background, so was very surprised to find it was written like a thriller. Not sure about the style but the content is definitely worth reading!
Skip the TV series and read this. Incredible book. Must have annoyed him somewhat that he spent his whole life writing science fiction about space ships and aliens, then this is the book that gets all the critical acclaim.
Great book about the changes in Angola upon independence, told from the point of view of someone locked in their apartment. English translation is pretty good.
Some pretty old school opinions about "the natives" but an interesting read on Portugal's messy insurgencies in Africa. He got great access.
I hated his flowery writing style at first, but kind of like it now. An incredible piece of investigative journalism.
