Goodreads Review: The Mueller Report: The Findings of the Special Counsel Investigation by Robert S. Mueller III

Three star review, originally posted here on June 4, 2019.   Meh, kinda repetitive, and the characters were stupid. (har har) Okay, no, for real, I’m not sure how to review a Special Report, but I read the whole damn thing, so I’m gonna try. First of all, I listened to the audiobook, which is … More Goodreads Review: The Mueller Report: The Findings of the Special Counsel Investigation by Robert S. Mueller III

Goodreads Review of Among the Living and the Dead: A Tale of Exile and Homecoming on the War Roads of Europe by Inara Verzemnieks

Three star review, originally posted here on May 31, 2019.   This was a tough one to rate, and really I think I come down more around 3.4 stars than three- technically I’m more than neutral on it, but not quite more enough to say I liked it. Starting with the obvious pro: I’m a … More Goodreads Review of Among the Living and the Dead: A Tale of Exile and Homecoming on the War Roads of Europe by Inara Verzemnieks

Goodreads Review: Parlkand: Birth of a Movement by Dave Cullen

Four star review, originally posted here on May 19, 2019. Dave Cullen’s “Columbine” is easily one of the best, most important books I have ever read. And so I could not wait to get my hands on this, his second book, as soon as it came out. It is a very different book in many … More Goodreads Review: Parlkand: Birth of a Movement by Dave Cullen

Goodreads Review: Year of Miracles by Geraldine Brooks

Four star review, originally posted here on April 26, 2019. So my favorite author is Tony Horwitz, and when I heard his new book was coming out, I took a look at his website in hopes of a book tour, and from there I learned that he’s married to another author names Geraldine Brooks. “Huh,” … More Goodreads Review: Year of Miracles by Geraldine Brooks

Goodreads Review: My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Three star review, originally posted here on March 29, 2019. This was fine. It was interesting to get some backstory on Justice Sotomayor and to hear her own voice. I particularly appreciated her take on affirmative action and its role in her life. But the book was also, frankly, a little boring. Maybe even a … More Goodreads Review: My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Goodreads Review: The World According to Garp by John Irving

Two star review, originally posted here on April 17, 2019.   I went into this book knowing virtually nothing about it or its author, except for the fact that it had a recognizable name and seems to be one of those modern classics that most people seemed to have read and liked at some point. … More Goodreads Review: The World According to Garp by John Irving

Goodreads Review: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Four star review, originally posted here on March 5, 2019.   A beautiful and thought-provoking work. I saw someone else that this- I listened to the audiobook, which was perfect because you can hear the author’s true tone, but I also wish I’d had a print copy on hand because I was constantly wanting to … More Goodreads Review: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
