The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
by Douglas Adams

View in Library Catalog

Douglas Adams', "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is a sci-fi classic. It is a perfect blend of ridiculousness and wry humor and philosophical questioning. Although this was written in the late 1970's it seems to have predicted some parts of the future so well. It always leaves you wondering what will happen next due to it's unpredictable nature. It is a wonderful book that I would recommend to almost everyone.

I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed, inspired to do so by the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls. After seeing the book become an impetus for so much of the plot of the Netflix movie, I was intrigued. It's a well-written and emotional account that got me to break out of my preferred genre of reading and instead read a memoir. However, at times it's written so honestly that it's painful to read. There were a few scenes that gripped me distressed me. Before reading it, I wondered to myself, "I wonder what it must take to motivate someone to undertake such a long and arduous hike..." After reading, I realize it takes a lifetime of prior traumatic experiences.

End Of All Things
by John Scalzi

Ok, even I admit my Scalzi reading has gotten out-of-hand. This was not the strongest of the entries in the series, and a lot of it had to do with politics/diplomacy rather than science/space travel. Plus, we've seen a lot of Scalzi's tricks at this point. But definite credit for any story line in which women bring peace to their section of the universe through honest communication!

I'm really not a huge science fiction fan, but I am really enjoying the Old Man's War series by John Scalzi. Highly readable.

The book had lots of twists and turns. The story was fun and entertaining, with several surprising and funny moments.

Norse Gods
by Neil Gaiman

View in Library Catalog

Neil Gaiman's audio performance of his "Norse Gods" reflected his clear passion for the tales and sly wit. Though from time to time I wondered if I would recognize the names of characters, objects, and places if I ever read the print edition ("Oh, that's how you spell that?"), more often I was glad not to have to decifer them on my own. Gaiman's reading brought out the sly humor in the stories, though I think I detected a slight pro-Loki sentiment. Much of Gaiman's original work, aside from the delightful family-appropriate "Fortunately the Milk," seems too spooky for my delicate sensibilities, so I was grateful to be able to savor his writing and performance with this recording.

Where'd You Go Bernadette
by Maria Semple

This book was recommended to me by a close friend. She read it all the way back in 2015, but it's still the first book she suggests when someone is looking for a summer read. I had high hopes for it, but it unfortunately did not deliver in the ways I had wanted.
