The Euphemism
The Button - Wednesday Martin

Nope nope nope. DNF. This book started out discussing the finer points of a spider monkey's dangling clit. I'm out.

Frustrating Murphy
Catching Murphy - Wilson Ring

This book was mind-numbing aggravating. Someone catch that damn dog! Please! 51 pages of the dog outsmarting humans. Getting out of snares, trip traps, you name it. Omg. I love my cats and my dog, but there would come a time after 13 months of this where I admit clearly my dog is smarter than I am. Be free, dog. You have earned it.

After Words
After Words - Nina Mitchell

This has been the best in this series so far. I related to this woman on a spiritual level. She suffers 2 strokes in her 20s and loses her mobility and speech. This story chronicles her come back. I feel this because I have chronic migraine which is on the spectrum of strokes. I have been known to lose my sentences halfway through, zone out, slur my words, see glitter or lens flares, and smell burning wires. It is horrible to be trapped inside your head, to know what you want to say and be unable to communicate. Or sometimes be unable to even think of the most basic words. I've cried more than once because me, the writer, couldn't remember what a brontosaurus was or who Ewan McGregor was, either.

The Woman in the Identity Theft Racket
The Woman in the Strongbox - Maureen O'Hagan

This wasn't bad, but I never give high marks to an author who misspells their own characters' names. And this person did. Also misspelled locations. 

 

I liked the mystery of this, but damn this was convoluted. Also, anticlimactic. I guess that's real life, but had this been a full length novel I would have thrown it.

The Road to Jonestown
The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and Peoples Temple - Jeff Guinn

This was a well researched, well written book that really had me from page one. It was packed with details I didn't know already.

 

The story of the Peoples Temple is one of utter tragedy because I honestly believe most of those people really did just want a better world. But I will never truly know how to feel about Jones. Was he always evil? Or did he just turn into a wicked man through corruption? None of us will ever know because he was a man of contradictions. In the end, he was a murderer and that is what we all remember him for.
