Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Part two of my one-sentence reviews for the many audiobooks I’ve listened to this year. Hang in there!

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

I wanted to love this one so hard because it’s Neil Gaiman, but I found myself nodding off one too many times to say I enjoyed it.

The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi

We all know that John Scalzi is a master author, but this first book of his Interdependency series is masterful.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells

It seems that all my friends love this series, and while I thought this first book was cute and enjoyable, I am not sure it is one I want to continue.

Eleanor Oliphant is Perfectly Fine by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor has a way of sneaking into your heart and utterly charming you despite her antisocial ways; even though I found her not so antisocial, I appreciate her need for order and cleanliness.

Educated by Tara Westover

Ms. Westover’s story is almost unbelievable in everything she experiences but profound in her survival and ability to recognize the dangers of her upbringing.

The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Ray Hinton

Mr. Hinton is a better man than I, and I can honestly say that I feel all the anger he no longer feels at the blatant racism that defines his entire case.

The Consuming Fire by John Scalzi

I can’t even begin to say how much I love this story, and Wil Wheaton is the perfect narrator.

Dopesick by Beth Macy

I thought I was getting a more in-depth version of the Hulu series; instead, I received that and so much more but still left wondering why doctors continue to prescribe opioids at the same high levels for pain management.

Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow

Harvey Weinstein is a despicable man, and everything Mr. Farrow experienced simply trying to expose him illustrates everything wrong in this country.

Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson

What an utterly charming story, one I was not expecting and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

In the Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund

This is an excellent homage to the fabulous Clue movie and board game, complete with a spooky mansion, an eclectic cast of characters, and an intriguing mystery.
