Loved this book. A great companion piece for anyone who has read Moby Dick as well as a great meditation on whales and our history with them. A very moving and lovely book.

I enjoyed this. It surprised me in some places. I read it mainly because it inspired Sergio Leone for a movie he never made.

An amazing history of the Gulf of Mexico that will leave you thoroughly depressed and destroyed. So strange to read a book that I am so very connected to in various ways.

I thought this was ok. The big twist was easy to spot, especially halfway through the book when one of the main characters goes on an extended story about a similar incident. Also, there is a shift through the book in one of the main characters that I didn‘t like. I don‘t think everything to be neat and tidy, but I don‘t like figuring out stuff before the main characters because they are dense.

Cathythoughts I‘m on the 4th one now .. Broken Harbour ... it‘s good 👍🏻 3mo

Not the normal book I would read, but I enjoyed it. One of those history books that shows you we have always been awful and there was no golden age.

There was a lot more heart to this book than I thought there would be. I love the tone it set on the balance between Heaven and Hell. Reminded me a lot of my Old Testament class at Jesuit.

Okay book about a fisherman surviving falling overboard. Best part about it is the look at the lives of the fishermen in Montauk and how the Coast Guard operates.

Managed to read this today in between grocery shopping and making chicken wings. Now if the Saints can win, it will be a great day. Good book. Not as good as the Falstaff one, and I don‘t always agree with Bloom; but, he always makes me think.

First book of the year. The sinking of the El Faro shows just how vulnerable our shipping is and how much of a lifeline it is for all of us. This book will frustrate you, but knowing this story and the causes of the ship‘s sinking are absolutely needed.

Great look at the history of Jamestown. The book is also an argument for the fact that America is more a country of those marooned and less so a shining city on a hill. Probably the last book I will finish this year. Really excellent read.

Hamlet in Purgatory | Stephen Greenblatt

This is a dense book that gives a history of purgatory and a look at it in literature and then finally bringing it all around to Hamlet. I enjoyed it and learned a lot from it, but it was not a quick read.

Small, but dense, anthropological look at the world of The Odyssey and The Iliad. Good read if you want some insight into those epic poems. I enjoyed the book, but it probably isn‘t good for someone who just wants a casual read.
