Natetheworld
Into Thin Air | Jon Krakauer
Pickpick

We live sheltered lives. We travel from home to work and back again. Our journeys into the wild are only temporary. Local parks, beaches, or visits to national parks are the only interactions some of us will ever have.

Between a pick and so-so with this. Not my favorite of Larson‘s, but still interesting and educational. I listened to the abridged audio, so that may have affected my opinion.

The narration was a little dry, but this was otherwise a fascinating, in-depth account of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Arrogance, incompetence, and truly masterful levels of denial worked to create the nuclear meltdown. It that had far-reaching effects for the health of the people throughout Asia and Europe, as well as political consequences for the former USSR. Well-researches and written. 4⭐️

This is a thorough look at the Chernobyl accident and its aftermath. The human, political, and environmental effects were far-reaching and world-changing. It does give technical descriptions of radioactivity and the reactor itself. I am a chemist so I enjoyed the detail, but you could skim those sections if you wanted and still find this a great read.

Starting this one tonight! I loved Michael Punke's writing and storytelling style in The Revenant, so I thought I would gice this book a shot.

Just finished listening to this on my way in to work this morning. I read Nathaniel Rich‘s King Zeno last year and loved it. Narrator on this book was good and enjoyed it at 1.5x speed - gave it the great urgency the characters experienced throughout the story. Loved the nerdy numbers/quant and the bit of crazy. Great “read” 🤓🚙📖 #recommendsday

@Alisnazzy has been incredibly busy, received a nice promotion, and is in the process of transitioning to her new job. She doesn‘t have time to post, but those of you who are her friends know that she will always find time to read. She took her book along and joined her brother, her dad and me for UCF football. But this is her version of pregame 😂

ValerieAndBooks Good luck with everything @Alisnazzy! 2w

RamsFan1963 @Lizpixie Oh yes!! I love Blackadder. I think Blackadder The Third is my favorite. Hugh Laurie as the Prince was inspired 2w
Lizpixie @Cinfhen some of them are awesome aren‘t they! @RamsFan1963 yes! The third is my favourite too, though the 2nd is almost as good. I love Stephen Fry as Lord Melchett & the queen and nanny are hilarious 🤣 2w
