Da Vinci Code-esque puzzle thriller centering around Colombus and a hidden treasure. So far, we have visited Jamaica, Cuba, Vienna and Prague, which is fun. Airplane books are a fun way to pull my head out of the stress.

Beautifully written novel from an inimitable stylist, true to DeLillo's stated aim to give readers "refuge" and a solid way of grasping on to the welter of truth around Lee Harvey Oswald. JFK theories are not my go to, but I've also read Charles McCarry's Tears of Autumn, and what strikes me is how DeLillo's work matches that stated aim whereas McCarry's is both more plausible and more necessarily baroque. Time well spent, at any rate.

1st bk of the yr is for our rdg grp next week so on wed when i read in the opening chapter of a trump like president demanding to start a nuclear strike on N Korea + china due to a tweet i laughed however given today's news i put this political thriller down wondering whether truth is in fact stranger than fiction. Certainly a great premise to craft a novel, a fun romp but in the end i felt it ran out of steam. However interesting start to 2020.

Thank you so much for these wonderful gifts @Chili - this was an amazing gift to return home to find. I very much look forward to reading this book with my favorite kind of chocolate (and so much of it! 😊). I am glad to hear that the book is now on your TBR list, too! I am looking forward to hearing what you think of the stories. #JolabokaflodSwap @MaleficentBookDragon

Chili @DoctorMirabilis1267 You are very welcome. I hope the chocolate didn‘t melt. Enjoy!! 3w
DoctorMirabilis1267 @Chili It didn‘t. It was cold here over Christmas (for Texas). The piece I had last night was excellent. Thank you so much for the bookmark - it was an extra special treat. 3w
Chili @DoctorMirabilis1267 You‘re welcome. I was a tad hungry when I went shopping and everything chocolate looked good. 🙄 3w

I love starting a book knowing nothing about it and ending up with a solid pick. 🙌🏻

This book is about a lot of things, but mainly it‘s about Lee Oswald and the events leading up to the assassination of JFK. Great writing that seamlessly blends fact and fiction into a perfectly fascinating novel.

‘There's always more to it. This is what history consists of. It is the sum total of the things they aren't telling us.‘

BarbaraBB Sounds great. I was a bit scared to read another DeLillo but you make it less frightening 😉 1mo
