I wasn‘t sure about this book at first, but was entranced immediately and read it in three hours! Keep a tissue nearby though for the last third of the book!

Read this. It is the best window into the American occupation of Iraq I have read. Chandrasekaran shows the truth of American “success” in Iraq and how we were the largest obstacle to the recovery after the toppling of Saddam.

Less mystery, more random conversation. Mystery wasn‘t really a mystery.

I really got into this, but after the main action, I was left wanting something more from the ending. It was just a bit anti-climactic and left me wanting a better, more solid resolution to the novel.

The Book of Life | Deborah Harkness

“One morning we woke to find that all of the liquor in the house had been dumped down the sink and a makeshift mobile of empty bottles and silverware was attached to the kitchen light fixture. Matthew and I laughed, but as far as Sarah was concerned, this was war. From that moment my aunt and the house were in an all-out battle for supremacy.” ~~~Love this book❣️

Just finished Outlander today and started watching the show--which is the most true-to-book show I've seen in a long time--and my Mom and I got into a discussion about Jamie...

No_One Yes, it really is! I've only read book 1 and watched Season 1, and I loved how the show was so accurate. 😊 2y

"For the big idea--could be religion, could be politics, could be the race you belong to, or your clan, or philosophy, or economics, or your sex or just how many bleeding Guineans you got stashed in the counting house. Doesn't matter, because the big idea is always the same--wouldn't it be good if only everyone was the same as me--if only everyone else thought and acted and worshipped and looked like me, everything would become paradise on earth.
