Some books are meant to be devoured. Others should be savored. I devoured The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. With ever-increasing stakes and intense themes like survival, love, and abuse, you can‘t help but binge read it.

This is Berkeley about his father‘s death, after questioning her feelings regarding her mother‘s return, what Beryl hoped for, & the harm Beryl feels her mother did to her. Short, poignant conversation, but revealing.
Sorry this is late!
Week 3 discussion: Revenge. I‘m noticing a theme of revenge in some of the stories. For example, when Odysseus blinds the cyclops with his sharp olive spear, Poseidon makes him suffer. It seems to be a form of justice (in their minds) & part of the gods‘ code. What examples have you found?
