About 1/3 through In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson.

Really interesting how initially the US not only didn't want to interfere with Hitler, but how many silently didn't really have a problem with what Germany was doing with Jews.

Does it take away from it by not being finished?

That's why I'm hesitant to start.

Just finished Readme, probably the longest book I've read since the stand. Also read windup girl. Now starting snowcrash which seems way shorter than reamde.

I read this many years ago. Really enjoyed it. Might have to dig it out and reread someday.



I just finished book three (Cursor's Fury) of Jim Butcher's Codex Alera, and will be starting book four "Captain's Fury" later this evening.

(Not a bad fantasy series, and made even better after I read that he wrote it because he was challenged that no one could write a good series based off of a lame idea. He said he could do it with two lame ideas. The challenger gave him Pokemon and the Lost Roman Legion as the lame ideas.)

Anyone read The Man In the High Castle? I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st and 2nd seasons on Amazon Prime. I just placed a hold on it at my local library so hopefully it will be here in a couple days

Yes. They share a little here and there but are very different. You'll have to Google what the hell you just read when you're done.

I'm currently reading "A Dragon Apparent". Guy traveling through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the 50s. It's ok, not sure how I feel about it.

Reading the Chipper Jones bio Ballplayer. Surprised how much he has opened up about his failed marriages.

Currently reading two books right now.

I'm finishing up Bad Paper by Jake Halpern

Somewhat (okay, a lot) ridiculous, but entertaining nonetheless.

OK, I just finished the Man In The High Castle. Like you said, very different from the series and it was mind numbing slow the first 200 pages.

I would not have made it through the book without watching the series first. C- to be on the nice side

Any suggestions on a prohibition book? Fiction or non

Some reason I'd like to dive into that for at least a book

And the Mountains Echoed - Khaled Hosseini
I've read The Kite Runner, enjoyed so decided to check this one out although I've heard A Thousand Splendid Suns and The kite Runner are better.

Black Mass:
The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob

By Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill.

It was a slow start, but the second half is getting very interesting.
