Five months in... Time to start a new thread.

 

I am really enjoying The Poisonwood Bible so far. About halfway in.

Thanks for starting us a fresh thread! I really liked The Poisonwood Bible.

 

Has anyone read The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey? I loved it.

Just finished this: 

Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right
by Arlie Russell Hochschild 
 
One of the best books I have read in a long time. I would recommend it for anyone who feels like they can't understand where the other political side is coming from.

Sounds intriguing.

In the spirit of brutality that is happening now in the age of the dotard, it's time to dive into "Blood Meridian" by McCarthy.

Oh damn, its so good! McCarthy at the height of his powers.

 

It's phenomenal. Memorable in part for the hyper-vivid desert landscape description, and for the stomach churning violence.

 

Maybe his best book?

 

This is what I'm slowly meandering through right now:

While I haven't read all of McCarthy's books, I do think that Blood Meridian could be the best of the bunch. One or two of his earlier books I started but had to drop. The writing was just way too dense.
