Recommend Me A Book - Thread
« on: March 27, 2020, 08:41:30 AM »
The idea of this thread is to post a few books you've liked and see if someone has a suggestion based on that list for your next book... I've seen it done on TV show lists... I'll start:

Red Notice, Shoe Dog, American Kingpin... Looking for my next non-fiction book that captures you like a movie.

Midnight in Chernobyl. Great book that's just as captivating as the recent HBO series, but with much more detail.

Last thing I read that I felt I had to suggest to anybody who would listen was Cixin Liuís Three Body Problem trilogy.

'With the Old Breed' by E.B. Sledge

One of the greatest wartime reads ever!!

So few know about it. Read it, then give it to your favorite Marine...

Follow that one up with Antony Beevor "Stalingrad" and "The Fall of Berlin"

Nonfiction - The Soul of an Octopus.

Fiction - Gentleman in Moscow Amor Towles. Fantastic. Great writing. I thought it was recommended here but I can't find it anywhere. 

The Overstory -  Richard Powers. Halfway through I'm loving it. Writing is beautiful. Good paired with the Octopus book. We humans think we're so special. So are octopuses and trees.

I listened to Sledge's book as an audiobook. Haunting. Hard to get through.
