I did not know what to expect going in. I was not even sure what the book was about, just that it was always recommended. This is one of those books that will stick with me for awhile.

JillR I‘ve just finished this for our book club read. Didn‘t really fancy it, ended up loving it! 1d

I like this series so far, not as much as her other ones but it is good. Now Nesta is about to drive me crazy!

This is a blame it on Litsy read. It was super interesting and pulled me in right away. It is a nonfiction book that reads like fiction. Highly recommend.

BarbaraBB A fascinating book about a horrifying event! 2mo

I think I would have liked this more but the main character drove me insane with how whiny she was and how she went on and on that she was crazy. Really distracted me from a lot of the story.

This was my first Krakauer book and will not be my last. It was an interesting story about a young man who was from a well off family who goes out into Alaska to investigate a new life for himself.

Once one suspends belief and allows the book to flow, this is a good story. I enjoyed the audio version.

I just discovered Ali‘s comedy last weekend and I knew I had to listen to this book. It is a memoir written as a letter to her daughters. If you like her comedy you will enjoy the book.

I had no idea what to expect going into this book. I really enjoyed the different story lines and how the author weaved them together.

I think I liked the first one better, However it was interesting to watch Darius go through growth in different situations this time.

This was my first Junji Ito and I look forward to read more from them. Stories ranged from gross to strange. I like this book talked about the authors commentary about the origin of each story.

My mom picked this for her family book club pick based on that she really liked the Fictional books the author wrote. I am having to bail about 14% in. It is so dry and not keeping my attention at all. I like non- fiction but I do not want to feel like I am reading a textbook.

This was a super fast read. I read it and listened at the same time and I really enjoyed it. Each character had there own actor, which made it so much better. There is a bit a weird storyline but I got past that and all was good.

…”The Great Gatsby is a snoozefest, and if I‘m gonna read words, I‘d rather them be by Octavia Butler, Tananarive Due, or Stephen Graham Jones instead of the guy who wrote a story about the tragedy of being rich.”

I am struggling with this …. Does it get better after the first 1/4 of the book??? Cause right now I could careless about any of these characters.
