After a couple heavy reads, I wanted to lighten things up. Why not a book that’s a barely-disguised novelization about Kate Middleton and Prince William from the writers behind Go Fug Yourself? It’s a perfect book because it’s exactly what it should ...more

Oof. Don’t read this on a bad day. It’s intense. I found the writing excellent and the story one of the best I’ve read in the “good wife gone bad” genre, and those two things contribute to the reader really feeling the depression, anxiety, and sadnes ...more

I wanted to love this so much. I wanted to get sucked in and not emerge until I’d finished the book. That didn’t quite happen, and I’m disappointed. The old, familiar Stephen King writing and characterization came and went, which may be why I found t ...more

The Plane That Wasn't There by Jeff Wise

We humans don’t need mysteries to create conspiracy theories, but it sure helps. To that end, Jeff Wise has crafted a particularly believable one about the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. You could argue that Wise, a licensed pilot and experien ...more

Missoula by Jon Krakauer
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is damning and sad. It’s an indictment on so many things, both specific (people like Kirsten Pabst) and more broad (how our justice system handles–or doesn’t handle–rape cases). Krakauer spares no one in this scathing look at the handling o ...more

I’ve been off historical fiction for a bit and thought I might dip my toe back into the pool with this one. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth in the mid-1500′s, we find our main character, Katharine, widowed and living with her wealthy relatives. She i ...more

Beneath the Surface by John Hargrove

What a tangled web of shit SeaWorld has gotten itself into. Hargrove isn’t off the hook either: shortly after the release of this book, SeaWorld provided startup funding to a website designed to attack Hargrove (a former SeaWorld trainer) and also re ...more

This is masterful nonfiction. The best nonfiction informs and illuminates, making a reader feel more compassion or more passionate (or both) about a subject. Good nonfiction is not staid or dry: it’s provocative. And this book is incredibly provocati ...more
