A fascinating book about the deception at Theranos and the culture of fear created by the top. Disgusting how they played with the health of human beings all the while lying about their capabilities. Really well written by an investigative journalist from the Wall Street Journal. Highly recommend it.

Truly Madly Guilty | Liane Moriarty

The book follows Moriarty's formula of jumping back and forth between past and present, and alluding to some seismic event. It's admittedly a little slower than some of her other books, but I still enjoyed it. Thought the characters were developed and real, and the "event" was, while tragic, entirely plausible which I appreciate more and more in my reading. Would definitely recommend the audio version. The narrator is fantastic.

I resisted reading this book for a long time, more than a little apprehensive after all of the hype surrounding it and my lack of interest in anything war related. But it was recommended by reader friends whose opinions I trust. Happy to say I really enjoyed it. Found myself getting a little fatigued in the first half, but had a hard time putting it down afterward. Highly recommend - a truly beautiful story of family, love and loss.

Loved the modern take on Pride & Prejudice. It definitely stays true to the Austen telling but the modern applications are humorous. Listened to the audiobook and found the narrator's voice annoying and not a good match with the book. Made Lizzy sound too young and uneducated.
