Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson. Nonfiction, Larson’s telling of the sinking of the Lusitania by German U-boats, part of what got the U.S. to enter the first World War. Larson covers all aspects of the story from the passengers on the ship to the German U-boat captain to the politics in the U.S. I’ve read In the Garden of Beasts by Larson, and this book is another well told nonfiction story, reading much more like a novel than a nonfiction book. All of the parties involved make the story even more interesting. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. The February read for book club which I abandoned about half way through. The story reads like a fairy tale. I get the main idea of it and why Ishiguro told the story this way, but I just didn’t like it enough to keep reading. The story was incredibly slow.
Currently listening to Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon on audio and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
