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.
Awesome book , that brings a new perspective....
My wife is reading this.... I'll get it when she is done.
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.
Chris, do you read by the POUND?
Just read 10 pages a day. You will make it.
Stendhal....Memoires of a Tourist.
Moved on to this one last week:
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?:
"Hank - The Life Of Charles Bukowski"
1991 Random House
No, I would actually like to discuss either subject, but unfortunately forum rules prohibit such discussion. Sorry, "review" was a poor choice of words.
After seeing bits and pieces of the movie "Matilda", I´m reading the book now and enjoying it.
The Phantom Flotilla by Peter Shankland.
"The Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance" by Herman Wouk.
Tales of Peter Rabbit...Beatrice Potter
Daisetz T. Suzuki
"The Zen Doctrine Of No-Mind"
I re-read Camus' The Stranger on my way back from Hawaii. Had the protagonist not been such an over-thinking existentialist (bordering on nihilism), he might have enjoyed his life a bit more and perhaps avoided killing the Arab stranger. An unintentional argument against existentialism.
