Been knee deep in "The History of Rome/Byzantium" podcasts but just started:




I rarely go to the movies these days but still love reading about the film industry.
I wrapped this a few weeks or a month ago. Fascinating story as I always love to read how the sausage was made business books. I thought his writing was pretty shitty though - kind of like a diary entries. Anyway I appreciate his candidness.

Just started this:

I’m now onto A River Runs Through It. I don’t know how how I missed this one, but it’s pretty much perfection.
I enjoyed that story s ton but it failed to resonate with me as much as it fid with others. Truly I'm a failure.

Hemingway’s worst is still better than most authors’ best. I enjoyed it, but it’s certainly not as good as his other work. My favorite is The Sun Also Rises.
reading at the moment :)

Just finished The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jemisin. Well written fantasy set in a really unique world.

I am currently reading Chernobyl by Frederik Pohl, which is a brilliant and moving fictional account of the disaster and the people involved. Pohl is mainly known as a science-fiction writer, but this is a completely straight historical novel.

Now on to His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet, which was a finalist of the Booker Prize a couple of years ago. It concerns a brutal murder case in the Highlands of Scotland in the Nineteenth Century, and it is wonderfully written so far.

Read by Dennis Quaid, who lends a perfect voice and feel to this narrative.

Is that the gigantor multi-volume biography? I've heard good things.
Yup, book 1 of 4 (5 is coming up at some point). I have read and own 3 of the 4 and they are all incredible. Caro can sometimes over stress some points but you will never be bored nor regret the commitment to any or all the books.
