The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m usually leery about sequels several years after a massive success. Always feels like a blatant capitalization. I‘ll hand it to Atwood, though. She wisely didn‘t try to one-up the original. This is stylistically different; three narrators and more action. It combines the backstory of The Handmaid‘s Tale and the Hulu series (so I hear, as I don‘t watch the show). I liked this, but didn‘t love it.

Prairiegirl_reading I think it would be hard for her to not be influenced by the show. Or at least the reaction to it. I don‘t know how much of a hand she has in the show though. And I‘ve only seen season one. I can‘t wait to get to this one regardless. 😄 5d
britt_brooke @Prairiegirl_reading I agree. Nowadays, with so many popular book adaptations, the authors face unique challenges. You want to please the readers and the reader-watchers and have it all make sense. I‘ll be curious to hear what you think! 5d
Prairiegirl_reading @britt_brooke I may have to ditch my current read. It‘s ok but just so weird! 5d

britt_brooke @Prairiegirl_reading 😆 It does sound odd, but I‘m stacking it just for the cover! 🐰 5d
RaimeyGallant Hmmm... *heart sinks* 5d
BookwormM The beauty of the original was the fact that the Handmaid was just a random woman caught in time with no past or future. I feel you lose that with this book. I liked the political workings of Gilead but didn‘t like the coincidences of who the other narrators were, I would have preferred unlinked narratives that gave an overview (edited) 4d
britt_brooke @RaimeyGallant It‘s still a good read. 4d
britt_brooke @BookwormM Everything you said! 🎯 4d
BookNik Does it require to read The Handmaid's Tale...?? 2d
britt_brooke @BookNik Yes, I‘d say so. The Handmaid‘s Tale is fantastic, so that‘s a bonus. 😉 2d

Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The gauge for which speculative fiction should be measured. I grabbed this on Audible (for a #reread), narrated by Claire Danes, months ago and decided to listen before starting The Testaments. Atwood is just so damned good. This story is so searing and complex. I really need to *finally* read some of her other work, but first ... part two.

MrBook Nice review! I‘ve read some of her other work, and it‘s recommended. 😁 7d
britt_brooke @MrBook Thanks! Do you have a favorite of hers? 7d
MrBook I really liked “Stone Mattress”. “The Heart Goes Last” wound up being hilarious. (edited) 7d

KathyWheeler Clair Danes does a great job of narrating this book. 7d
Lcsmcat I‘ve not read anything of hers that I _didn‘t_ like! But Blind Assassin is a favorite. 7d
Prairiegirl_reading Oryx and crake is also really good. It‘s the first in a trilogy and I think it‘s the strongest of the three. 7d
britt_brooke @Lcsmcat Definitely stacking that one - thanks! 7d
britt_brooke @Prairiegirl_reading Thanks, and that‘s good to know. Stacking! 7d
TorieStorieS That‘s good to hear- I also grabbed this on audio for a re-read but I was a little nervous that Danes would be distracting! 7d
britt_brooke @TorieStorieS I had a hard time separating her face from Offred at first, tbh. Then I got used to it. 6d
Scochrane26 Her other books—personally, I love Alias Grace (read 3 times) and The blind assassin (read 2). Lady Oracle is fun. I haven‘t re-read Cat‘s eye and The Robber bride but remember not liking them as much. I finally read Oryx and Crake this yr, & it‘s excellent. 6d
britt_brooke @Scochrane26 Thanks so much for the recs! 6d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An incredibly tough, but necessary read. As a school shooting survivor - a loose term because, although present, I was not in immediate danger - this book was oddly therapeutic. My school is in here. My brave classmates wrote essays.

PS. The title and cover are tasteless and insensitive. Do better for the survivors! According to a friend who was a contributor, the editors wanted a different cover, but the publisher gave them no choice.

imabusybee Im sorry you had to go through that! I totally understand My son was in Vegas he called to tell us he loved us and he hung up all I could think/say was...was that gunshots in the back ground. 7d
Butterfinger How sad that the publisher thought more about money than survivors' feelings. You may not have been near, but you had similar feelings I bet. Fear, confusion, anger, and guilt. My school also had an attack. In 92, two boys died by stabbing beside my brother's locker. It still upsets me knowing my brother was scared and needed me. 7d
Butterfinger Oh I'm so sorry @imabusybee how horrid for a mother. 7d

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Traversing the nation with the Merry Pranksters as they “transcended the bullshit” felt like a hellacious hallucination, but I love reading about 60s counterculture. I can‘t say I was a huge fan of this particular story, mostly due to that pompous ass Ken Kesey, but Wolfe‘s writing is mesmerizing. The audio is fabulous.

The moment I‘ve been both waiting for and dreading: my school. I was a sophomore when this happened. This difficult book has consumed me for the last 3 days. There are 4 essays from my former classmates. I know them all. One was my neighbor and is a lifelong friend. Our parents still live across the cul de sac from each other. One is the shooter‘s sister. I have mixed feelings, but want to hear her story. She drove him to school that day.

SauerPatch I hate that this even exists. 💔 (edited) 2w

Reviewsbylola Aw Brittany, thinking of you. ♥️ I was torturing myself watching and reading about Sandy Hook the other day while my kids were at school. I don‘t know why I torture myself but I just see the love surrounding them at school and it‘s unfathomable to me that these things can happen. 2w
xicanti Wow. That‘s gotta be an intense read. 2w
britt_brooke @Megabooks I didn‘t know Kelly well, but she always seemed nice and smart, which she undoubtedly still is. Her essay is good. They lived less than a mile from me. Her brother was always odd. He didn‘t like “preps” though that‘s not who he shot. He shot his friends. He and one of the girls killed trick or treated at my house just a few weeks prior to the shooting. She was dressed as Gumby. I gave them candy. 2w
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola Thanks, sweet friend. 💚 This book has been oddly comforting. If I‘m being honest, the Sandy Hook stories hurt me as much as my own school‘s. I was a parent to a baby by then and that broke me. I‘m sure you felt/feel the same. (edited) 2w
britt_brooke @SauerPatch Me, too, friend, but i have to admit it‘s been oddly comforting to me. And that makes me sad, but it‘s reality. 💔 2w
britt_brooke @Melissa_J It‘s tough, but oddly comforting. That probably sounds weird, but knowing that other people experienced similar (not okay), and feel the same, helps. We didn‘t know what to do back then. We just did our best. 💚 (edited) 2w

Megabooks We had a Governor‘s Scholars reunion in January in Lex, & they were calling people over the PA if their parents arrived early, & I remember so clearly them calling her & everyone stopped talking for a second. But even then at 17, I also thought thank god she got to do something normal her senior year & hang out with friends who knew her in a different context. I‘m really interested to read that book if for no other reason than her essay. Hugs. 💜 (edited) 2w
Megabooks Also, it‘s weird the things you remember. Like the Gumby costume. Or that beat of silence. I think Kelly played the flute in the talent show. People think Columbine was the start of an era, but I remember thinking of Heath when I was watching those events unfold in 99 from college. It makes me think of Cheryl Strayed saying WhyTF in an advice column. Truly, WhyTF. Idk if I‘ll ever, or any of us, get a satisfying answer to that. 😢😢 1w

britt_brooke @Megabooks Thank you for remembering Heath. 💛 I don‘t know why I‘m touchy about when people think it started with columbine. In fact, there were a few before that, they just weren‘t viewed as being as horrific, I suppose. 1w
britt_brooke @Megabooks I can‘t imagine how Kelly must‘ve felt/still feels. She lost friends and her brother (he‘s in prison, but you know what I mean). I just reconnected with her on fb. I hope she‘s been able to have a happy life beyond her brother‘s actions. 1w

One of cult leader Tony Alamo‘s business ventures was studded denim jackets - made by his followers - sold to celebrities out of a shop in Nashville in the 80s. Even in the last few years, celebs such as Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj have worn them. 🙄

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sociopath Tony Alamo had a knack for spotting vulnerabilities. After his evangelist preacher wife Susan died, he continued their church with his own disturbing agenda. He and his followers lived communally; the latter cutoff from the outside world. Alamo held complete control by instilling fear and ensuring low self esteem. Members endured beatings and fastings. He practiced polygamy and pedophelia, taking several child brides. 👇🏻

britt_brooke This book was very dry, but Schriver did an amazing job giving us the full picture including timelines and photos. There are a few essays by former members at the end as well. I‘m hoping to watch the documentary mini series on SundanceTV soon. 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An apocalyptic tale of poetic trees, amorous squirrels, zombies, and zoo animals narrated by a foul-mouthed, funny-ass domesticated crow. Something is happening to the Mofos (humans) so S.T. and his canine pal set out to see wtf is going on. Together with other domesticated creatures, they navigate their new existence. It‘s a sharp, but oddly tender story laced with golden pop culture references. So entertaining! Great debut.

August was a good month! Three of these were rereads: Medium Raw, One Flew Over the Cuckoo‘s Nest, and my only 5-star for the month, The Call of the Wild.

LauraBeth I read The Call Of The Wild and White Fang for Lit in college and loved it so much! I‘ve been wanting to re-visit them and haven‘t done it yet. I credit London with re-igniting my love of reading during a time when all I was reading were textbooks. 2w

The Bobby Gold Stories | Anthony Bourdain
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Brain candy for Bourdain fans: violent, funny, smutty. And there‘s food, of course. He was a brilliant essayist and I love his nonfiction, so I wasn‘t sure what to expect here. These short stories starring the tough but likable Bobby Gold weren‘t mind-blowing, but they certainly were entertaining.

Megabooks I‘ve always loved the word “smutty.” I‘ve always felt it‘s a classy way to say not classy stuff! 🤣 Great review!! (edited) 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An unnamed Ethiopian-American teen finds solace in her friendship with older, charismatic parking lot attendant, Ayale. He fills the gaps in her unstable home life, but he‘s not completely forthcoming with his business practices. He preys on her vulnerability. There‘s a pant load of ambiguity here, but it works. This is more than an immigrant story, it‘s about a cult. That‘s my theory anyway.

Bahni Turpin is brilliant as always.

Chanel Bonfire | Wendy Lawless
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️ More like Chanel Dumpster Fire. This is a pretty standard narcissistic artist mom memoir. Nothing wrong with that; every story deserves to be told. Lawless‘s mother Georgann was a real piece work. Alcoholic, neglectful, promiscuous, often cruel and violent, and sometimes suicidal. Totally batshit bananas and in no shape to raise children. It was quite a volatile environment for Wendy and younger sister Robin.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I like “The Last Interview” books for the most part. I‘m curious to know more about the interview selection process. Often, the books are too slim and I want more, but I‘m sure there‘s some bureaucratic reason for that. With Bourdain, I liked the earlier interviews best. The official “last interview” was not that exciting. Still worth a read if you‘re a fan.

britt_brooke This was decent @Megabooks but too short! Have you read any of the last interview books? They‘re interesting. 3w
Megabooks No I haven‘t! I didn‘t even know about them before this. Any in particular you‘d recommend? 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘ve been wanting to revisit Bourdain‘s nf, but previously hadn‘t felt up to it. THE LAST INTERVIEW was published Tues, so I started that, & decided to reread Medium Raw. It sounds dramatic & cheesy, but I think I‘m finally mourning. He touched his fans deeply. In this collection he backtracks a little on Kitchen Confidential; growth & CYA. 😂 Plus many more culinary delights. Hearing his voice was tough, but this is a nice collection.

JenReadsAlot Such a loss. 4w
britt_brooke @JenReadsAlot It really is. I don‘t usually care much about celebrities, but he was different somehow. He seemed so connected. I still can‘t believe it. 💔 4w

Brave New World | Aldous Huxley
post image
Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Huxley boldly created a dystopian society ruled by biological mass production and homogenization through a version of Fordism (assembly line). Babies are born in human hatcheries and inserted immediately into a caste system. The idea is that complete social control equals happiness. This was groundbreaking in 1932, and I appreciate that it‘s one of the original dystopian novels, but it didn‘t blow my mind. Clever names, but flat characters.

Alfoster Agreed. But what I loved about teaching it was every year it got a little bit closer to the technology we have now. Kids were always amazed by that. 4w
britt_brooke @Alfoster That‘s such a great point! It would‘ve probably held my attention more had I read it in high school. 4w
RamsFan1963 @britt_brooke I loved this book, and I see echoes of it every day in modern society. Most people were sure with Trump we were heading for a world like 1984, but I think BNW is a much more likely scenario, considering advancements in genetic engineering and biochemical modifications. 4w

britt_brooke @RamsFan1963 That‘s a great point! I agree. 4w
britt_brooke @OrangeMooseReads It was probably amazing in 1932, but even though the ideas hold up today, the writing didn‘t do it for me. We seem to agree often. 😁 4w
Novelista71 I couldnt have put it better! Sometimes so called great writers are truly great but not in ALL ways. There are ideas and then there is their expression and relationship of them to the reader, 4w

⭐️⭐️ I disliked this in the same way I disliked Maggie O‘Farrell‘s I AM, I AM, I AM. Those were not all brushes with death and these are not all horror stories. Literary gimmicks annoy the hell out of me, especially in memoir. Massive Liz Phair fans will probably like this, but even though the writing is decent, the stories are tedious.

PUB DATE: 10.8.19
#netgalley #ARC

Megabooks Love this review! I really loved I am, I am, I am, but I think it was O‘Farrell‘s writing that saved it. Something about her rhythm jives with me. Unless Phair got a really good ghost writer, I‘m going to be wary of this one. 4w
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thanks! 😄 I‘d be curious to hear what you think about this one. And I do agree that O‘Farrell writes beautifully. That book just didn‘t do it for me. 😉 4w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Zipped though this series and I‘m totally hungover. I‘ll miss Strike and Robin; their brains and tension. Rowling‘s mysteries keep you guessing, and though you might be partially right, you don‘t really know shit. I love that. Then, Strike finds a way to spell it all out for you. I like that, too. I‘m not a series person, but I‘m happy I gave these a chance. Book 4 might be the best yet. So intricate (yet could‘ve been edited down a bit).

britt_brooke PS. Glenister‘s audio narration is outstanding! (edited) 1mo

The Call of the Wild | Jack London

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #reread | During the Klondike Gold Rush, Buck, a St. Bernard mix, was stolen from his California home and sold as a sled dog in Alaska. He‘s then sold several times over enduring many hardships and earning his role of alpha. In this fable-like tale of survival, Buck goes steadily from domesticated to feral. London allegorically permits Buck to exhibit human-like thinking. Dogs and humans could easily be interchanged. It‘s brilliant.

post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I don‘t know much about superhero comics, but my sons‘ love for Teen Titans Go! and a bit of research led me to this as a good starting point for Teen Titans. And I‘m digging the darker tones. The original crew (Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash) created in the 60s is present, but to spice it up, Wolfman added Raven, Changeling, Starfire, and Cyborg. This motley group of young superheroes are summoned to fight, exist, and live together.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Second time around and this still didn‘t knock my socks off, but in appreciation for Kesey‘s brazenness, I bumped it up a star. Growing up with a psyche nurse mom, I thought this would be especially riveting, but it‘s more about a power struggle between two unlikeable characters than anything else. I love Chief Bromden and his first-person narration, but McMurphy and Ratched are both insufferable pains in the ass.

Scochrane26 Did you know Kesey was high on lsd while writing part of this? Not too surprising. 1mo
