When I started taking the train to work, I was really excited about how much reading I was going to get done.

I'd get a forward asking me to check all of the books I'd read, and I'd be able to check all 100 books on the list. I would be so well-read!

Well, the reality wasn't quite what I'd imagined

Otherwise, you may want to find something that will be more interesting and rewarding since there are ...more

Miller's writing is amazing; love everything he writes, but this book isnt one you can curl up with and get lost in. It is a book of essays, so I would recommend reading this book while you are reading something else. Loved the essay on returning war veterans and the Nazi trials!

I rated it a 4 for the quality of the writing. Some of the stories are compelling and complex while others are less so.
