We will be checking out books within the Satire Genre.

Satire


Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.



This is one that I am not familiar with so I am looking forward to it.

I listened to the audio book of The Master and Margarita.

I do not like audio books, so this wasn't the best format for me but I liked the sound of the book. I was lost a lot of the time because I tended to lose my focus on listening, which is why I stay away from audio books.
