Literary World Cup - Part II

"In his life, a man can change wives, political parties or religions but he cannot change his favourite soccer team." Eduardo Hughes Galeano

Halifax Public Libraries' collection is so diverse that we have books to represent each soccer team in the ‪2014 FIFA ‎World Cup in Brazil! So we decided to have our own ‎Literary World Cup matchups with titles from our Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Multilingual collections.

Colombia  vs Greece:

Amor en los tiempos del colera by Gabriel García Márquez

One hundred years of solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

The Odyssey by Homer

Uruguay vs Costa Rica:

La montaña invisible by Carolina De Robertis

The invisible mountain by Carolina De Robertis

Cocori by Joaquin Gutierrez

England vs Italy :

The complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The divine comedy by Dante Alighieri

Côte d’Ivoire vs Japan:

Aya : love in Yop City by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

Which one is your favorite team or favorite book?
