An epic story about 4 boys making a fresh start for themselves. Alternating perspectives mostly from 3 of the boys. Shows the complexity of human behavior and you truly get invested in each of the characters. While it could have been shorter; I enjoyed the perspectives of the ancillary characters. It‘s just under 600 pages but is a surprisingly quick read.

Not sure where I heard about this one - I thought it was on here, but don't see any posts about it 🤷‍♀️. Anyway, it's a good lunch/break choice. Relatively entertaining, easy to dip and out of, not so compelling that I have to tote it around to keep reading.

There's a little bit of Coastal-Media-Type-Road-Trips-to-Find-the-Real-America 🙄, but not the worst offender I've ever come across. And it's balanced with lots of pie recipes!

One of the sillier, lighter offerings from Connie Willis, who even at her worst (which this isn't) I adore. It took me some time to really get into this complete mash-up of a book, but once I did it was a full-blown good time

Amor Towles became one of my favorite authors with "A Gentleman in Moscow" so I knew that this book would capture my heart in the same way. The strength of Towles writing is simply the power of character. He creates characters that you feel like you have known your entire life, filled with heart, depth, emotion and flaws that very few writers today can create this well. The Lincoln Highway is a love letter to youth and the joys of adventure.

I read this book a decade ago in high school for an elective western religions class. I liked that back then, but I liked it more the second time I read it. Tom is an emotionally intelligent man seeking to understand different perspectives on religion as he travels through the U.S. interviewing people. He diversified the religions of his interviews, and I feel I understand my religious peers more. There are no conversion requirements.

Many thanks to @bthegood for passing this book along to me. A simple and poignant story of an 80 year old dying of cancer hitting the road with her husband who has dementia. The wit and snark of Ella was perfect and her care alongside her occasional anger toward her husband felt spot on. Being older myself I could empathize with her review of her life. Happy to pass this book along to anyone, as it too is a traveler.

bthegood so glad you enjoyed it - 🙂 It has traveled from @BkClubCare to @bthegood to @Suet624 to whoever is next 🌞 (edited) 3w
