Good Omens | Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett

There was a lot more heart to this book than I thought there would be. I love the tone it set on the balance between Heaven and Hell. Reminded me a lot of my Old Testament class at Jesuit.

Fun book, but damn it is a tough read. Fleming was not a modern man.

Good overview of all of Shakespeare‘s plays. One of those books I will come to before or after I read or adapt one of the plays.

Love this series. It is criminal there is not a tv or film adaptation starring Jeffrey Wright.

Okay book about a fisherman surviving falling overboard. Best part about it is the look at the lives of the fishermen in Montauk and how the Coast Guard operates.

I really enjoyed this one and liked it a lot better than his book on Iago. These books are great to read before or after reading the plays.

Managed to read this today in between grocery shopping and making chicken wings. Now if the Saints can win, it will be a great day. Good book. Not as good as the Falstaff one, and I don‘t always agree with Bloom; but, he always makes me think.

First book of the year. The sinking of the El Faro shows just how vulnerable our shipping is and how much of a lifeline it is for all of us. This book will frustrate you, but knowing this story and the causes of the ship‘s sinking are absolutely needed.

Great look at the history of Jamestown. The book is also an argument for the fact that America is more a country of those marooned and less so a shining city on a hill. Probably the last book I will finish this year. Really excellent read.

This book was great. It is an amazing story, but the book also teaches a lot about survival and enduring unbelievable hardship.

I really enjoyed this one. It is basically a long magazine article, but the story is great. Going to now have to read more of Grann‘s work.

Great read. Sad that I am only discovering it now. Not your ordinary crime/private eye book. One I am going to reflect on for awhile.

Hamlet in Purgatory | Stephen Greenblatt

This is a dense book that gives a history of purgatory and a look at it in literature and then finally bringing it all around to Hamlet. I enjoyed it and learned a lot from it, but it was not a quick read.

One of those books that gets better the older I get. I also find more in the language. Another of the books Sean Patrick had to read this summer.

Obviously a problematic work given that it was published in 1869, but still a fascinating look at North America during La Salle‘s Exploration.

The World of Odysseus | Moses I. Finley

Small, but dense, anthropological look at the world of The Odyssey and The Iliad. Good read if you want some insight into those epic poems. I enjoyed the book, but it probably isn‘t good for someone who just wants a casual read.

Grilling out today. Re-reading The Deep Blue Good-By since it has come up a couple of times in the last month. Also, writing an episode of The Saint.

Injection Volume 3 | Warren Ellis

Imagine if Doctor Who was a pissed off Irish woman who was dealing with a rogue AI and something from the Other Works trying to get into this world? That is this issue. Like other Ellis works, this will have you going down the deep dive of information.

Warren Ellis bringing his eye to English Folklore the way he did Popular Fiction in Planetary. Only he is still breaking down Popular Fiction using the main characters. Not sure it will make you a better person, but it will make you more interesting.

Injection, Volume 1 | Warren Ellis

Weird combination of occult and science with versions of James Bond and Sherlock Holmes thrown into the mix. Feels like pieces of Global Frequency and Planetary combined with Ellis‘ love of tech and British folklore. Great reading for a rainy day or late night.
