Currently reading Jane Harper's latest. The Dry and the Wet (Force of Nature), so now for the Cold (the Survivors). Always well written and entertaining.
Any suggestions? Always like an insiders view of the world. Someone who has experienced what they are writing about.(less)

The Dawn of Everything

The Dawn of Everything
by David Graeber and David Wengrow

A great read, championing a concept that is self-evident to many of us, but requiring further proof for the academic world. The idea is that ‘civilisations’ have come and gone over the last ten thousand years with various levels of hierarchy or egalitarianism involved; that the theory where humankind has progressed (evolved?) from our violent Read more of this blog post »

The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley

Andy and 24 other people liked Sarah's review of The Midnight Library:
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
"I found The Midnight Library an easy, yet engrossing and thought-provoking read. Matt Haig explores the concept of the multiverse, with an amusing homage to the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment.

“It was an interminably difficult job when talking to non-scientists. They did not want to know about the ifs and buts, nor the pedantic small difference between processes. Any hole in the ground was a sinkhole.”
Andy McGee, Sublime Murder

“They worship Anu, the god of all the gods, who gives their kings a divine right to rule, to collect possessions for themselves and take slaves. It is not a system of harmony with nature or equality between beings.”
Andy McGee, Signs of A River
