Part travelogue, part history book, part personal history of the author, Philbrick (plus wife & dog) travels the route Washington took through New England and the southern states after being elected president. Interesting and educational, Philbrick is a fine narrator. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
1st book for #LittenListen @aperfectmjk
2nd book for #AVeryMerryReadathon @TheSpineView #WinterCosy @PuddleJumper #WrapItUpReadathon @keys_on_fire #Adventathon @ozma.of.oz

ozma.of.oz Well this definitely sounds like something I need to recommend to my dad! 😁 16h
RamsFan1963 @ozma.of.oz I find a lot of books about Washington to be fawning, but Philbrick gives us Washington warts and all, from his stand on upholding slavery to him having a rather harsh vindictive streak when crossed. 15h
ozma.of.oz That absolutely sounds like something I need to get him! He has a lifetime goal of visiting every presidential library. 😆 15h
keys_on_fire Awesome read! I didn‘t quite finish it on Overdrive before it went back to the library, so now I‘m waiting on my next hold to come available 🤣 14h
TheSpineView Sounds interesting 14h

I wish I liked this more than I did, but it was just too grimdark for me. I'm not squeamish about violence, but I found the casual attitude of the characters, as they were slitting throats, drowning people, torturing and raping, very off-putting. It's hard to root for anyone when everyone, to one degree or another, is a cold blooded killer. 2 💥💥

I didn't get as much reading done this #20in4 readathon as I had hoped. Too many days, after a long day of retail hell, I just wanted to come home and pass out. I did finish one audiobook and rack up double digit hours so I'm good with it.

While it seemed like every other Predator movie I've ever seen, it was okay to while a way a couple of hours. The characters were pretty generic, from the elite soldiers trained to hunt the alien Predator, to the wiley politician who wanted to use the alien's technology to enhance his own power and position. I did like that some of the story was told from the Predator's point of view, showing its own sense of honor. 3 💥💥💥

Finished this this morning with a little audiowalking before it started raining. I thought it was going to be another Holmes wanna-be, but Max Carrados was his own unique character. I don't think it was necessary to remind readers in every story that Max was blind, and used his other refined senses to solve crimes. That part did get a bit too repetitive. 3 🔎🔎🔎 1/2

This is a very strange, but enjoyable book. Dick isn't really interested in plot, or linear storytelling, in his tale of a group of survivors in California after a nuclear war. Time and place jumps around, but the diverse characters makes the book worth reading. 4 💥💥💥💥

I know this book is well loved on Litsy, but it's not the book for me. I gave it over 50 pages, and it still wasn't grabbing me, I was actively looking to read anything else instead of picking it up again. I'm sure it's a case of not the book but me.

The Godmakers | Frank Herbert

Not Herbert's best work, the world building is first rate, but the characters are pretty static and one dimensional. Through 4 interconnecting stories, written in the 1950s, we follow the path of government agent Lewis Orn as he goes from lowly functionary to godhood. Lots of Herbert's usual tropes are involved including the psi-powered messiah like Paul from Dune. 3 💥💥💥

The author is definitely a true believer, someone with an unshakeable belief in the existence of Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti. I found most of the book interesting, but at times it delved off subject talking of ghosts, UFOs, extra-dimensional travelers, time travelers, parallel universes, moth-men and skin walkers. 3 👣👣👣

Goodness knows I don't need to start another series, but I really enjoyed this adventure of Victorian London's "other"private investigator. Arrowood is the poor man's Sherlock Holmes, although he'd hate you for saying that. It's a solid mystery, starts as a simple missing person case, but branches out to a much wider conspiracy involving murder and mayhem. 4 ???? 1/2

Probably not the best book written about David Bowie's life, but it's still an amazing story. Bowie met just about everyone who was anyone, and had a major influence on not just music but also fashion, art and theater. Bowie come off as an amazing talent, but also a warm, funny, generous man, the ultimate chameleon who picked up different styles and ideas from others, and blended them all together to create his many musical personalities. 4 🌟

True crime isn't usually my cup of tea, but I did find this very interesting. During the 1990, a serial killer, known as the Last Call Killer, was stalking gay men in NYC. The men's murdered and dismembered bodies were found in various parts of New York and New Jersey. I liked that the author made sure the reader knew not just the killer, but the lives of each of his known(its believed he may have killed dozens of other men during his vacations)⬇️

RamsFan1963 victims. Too much true crime concentrates on the killer and his methods, forgetting the victims and the families left behind. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1mo

Even though I've seen dozens of movies and TV shows with her characters, I've never read an Agatha Christie novel. I don't think this was the one to start with, I found it boring and tedious, with a very obvious conclusion. Maybe I should have started with a better known classic like Murder on the Orient Express. 2 ⭐⭐

For those who don't know, Texas is a s**thole, full of intolerant assholes (in the government). If you look at this list, you will see a very obvious theme, since all the books deal with race, racism, Black Lives Matter, gender equality, women's rights and LGBTQ characters. Just another attempt by Gov. Abbott and his goons to force their alt right, white nationalist agenda down the throats of fellow Texans.

A short but somewhat confusing novel dealing with teleportation, known as posting, and how it opens the world to infinite parallel universes.
