Started reading Catch-22 today for my book club. Tbh I don't think it's working for me. Would dnf, but want to finish it so I can say more at book club. Maybe the whole satire thing is not for me, but I'm only on page 30 and am mightily bored. Anyone else felt this way?

Brothers of the Gun: A Memoir of the Syrian War | Molly Crabapple, Marwan Hisham

Pickpick

What a heartbreaking memoir! I must admit that I knew very little about the Syrian War ( or Syria, for that matter) before reading this book. Marwan‘s struggle with losing his home to religious extremism (which didn‘t even come from the Middle East) is terrible! 13/15 #Jumpstart2020 #Nonfiction2020 - “About a 21st century war torn area” #Booked2020 - “#LiveAndLearn - a subject you know little/nothing about”

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good pick! 1d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds very informative and like a tough read too.... I agree, great pick! 1d
Cinfhen I‘ve already stacked this one ☝️ it sounds really interesting 1d

This is a dark & beautiful book. Searching the depths of human feeling ... the characters are wounded physically & emotionally. Speaking of those they had lost to wartimes , Sonja says “ maybe we try to find them in other people, in kindness & generosity “
Such truthful & brilliant writing.
I will use for #millennialauthor #booked2020

DGRachel One of my favorite books of 2017. I‘m eternally grateful to Litsy for the recommendation, as it got me out of a slump. 3d
Billypar Great review: glad you stuck with it! I kept putting myself in the characters' shoes, which is terrifying given the violence described, but it gave me a new appreciation for what it must mean to be brave in a situation like that. 3d
Cathythoughts @DGRachel A great book. I‘m eternally grateful to Litsy too ... almost all the books I read now are Litsy recommendations ❤️❤️❤️ 3d
Cathythoughts @Billypar Thanks Vinny, , it took courage to put yourself in their shoes ...💔. I loved the way life& love were seen as always having been here before we were born & will always be here after we are gone .. I loved that 3d

Reading by my fire , I want to bail , but the writing is waking up a part of me that wants to hear this/these stories - of war & the people who lived through this time - 2004 the second Chechen war , I‘ve become very invested in the characters now , it‘s too late to bail , a woman curved like a comma , an eclipse, metaphors that cut to the truth 👍🏻💔❤️ Thankyou #booked2020 I‘m reading books I might never have #millennialauthor

TrishB Looks like a gorgeous reading spot ❤️ 6d
Tamra So comfy! This one is on my shelf so I‘m curious. 6d
