SEP 2018


Macbeth
By Jo Nesbo
A good writer- I enjoyed other books by him. It is very thought through. In this one the characters are themed after characters in the play. It gets confusing as the characters are different than the original play- so if you're not as familiar it would be better. He's taken the characters and written an entirely different story with a different ploy I didn't enjoy it as I know Macbeth so well.

The Pharaoh Key
By Preston and Child
This series has Gideon Crew as the central character. What pulled my attention a lot is the key, which they believe might lead to a treasure. "After centuries of silence, a code-breaking machine at EES has cracked the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old stone tablet, the Phaistos Disc, that dates back to an otherwise completely unknown, ancient civilization. The mysteries of the message itself hint at incredible treasures, and perhaps even a world-altering secret. No one remains at EES to take on this most remarkable mission but Gideon and Garza. The two agree to solve the mystery of the disc's message and split the spoils."

Calypso
By David Sedaris
The Audio was wonderful. I don't think he can write a bad book. He buys a house on the south coast and decides since they often have cutesy names he'll name ti the "sea-section". He writes funny stuff and sort of funny stuff about getting older and things that could happen with aging. He talks about his sister's suicide. The books ends with him talking about his father. It's sad, uncomfortable, and extremely funny,

The George Catlin Book of American Indians
By George Catlin
Catlin went and painted people from different native tribes- he wanted to preserve the culture. "A pictorial view of forty American Indian tribes is presented in a collection of more than one hundred and sixty of Catlin's paintings housed in the National Collection of Fine Arts in Washington D.C"

So Many Books, So Little Time: A Year of Passionate Reading
By Sarah Nelson
Not a great book but sort of fun. The author decided to read a book a week for a year. It's neat because there were things about the problems readers have. She talks about going to visit her mother and having to find things to read to not feel the need to kill something.
