    Continuing with "In Search Of Lost Time". I am on page 2790 now (out of 4194 pages)... this book is going to kill me. I really want to read it to the end but I doubt more and more that I will succeed. Started with the book some 16 years ago...

    Good book, available free on Amazon Prime.

    I read that book when I was 11 years old, my Dad bought it upon release. Heady stuff for a kid, but that’s history for you.

    If you've ever wondered about " How did we get this way? " Or "everything has gone to hell now".... then think again. Todays America has been yesterdays also.

    A Jack Reacher novel: "The Affair".

    A quieter book than normal. Reacher's not banging heads page after page...just two thugs that needed it, and about halfway through the book.

    Reads like a typical mystery genre...Child does keep you guessing, which keeps ya thinking, and reading. Even the title has me guessing at this point.

    No doubt a fascinating read, but we probably shouldn't be reviewing it here.

    It's a book from my local public library. I wasn't reviewing it, just saying I'm reading it!

    Would you have the same comments had I said I was reading this book?:

    No, I would actually like to discuss either subject, but unfortunately forum rules prohibit such discussion. Sorry, "review" was a poor choice of words.
