In Extremis: The Life and Death of the War Correspondent Marie Colvin - Lindsey Hilsum

Hilsum's biography of Marie Colvin, the reporter who was killed in 2012, is a well written, rose colored glasses off type of biography. Drawing on interviews as well as Colvin's diary entries, Hilsum presents a complicated portrait of a woman. It is refreshing to read a book about a woman who seems so on point and is just as problematic as the rest of us.

Considering recent attacks on the press coming from politicians, it is important to read this book.

Review: Somewhere Between Life and Death by Lurlene McDaniel
Somewhere Between Life and Death - Lurlene McDaniel

Title: Somewhere Between Life and Death
Author: Lurlene McDaniel
Series: Erin Bennett, 1
Format: ebook
Length: 266 pages
Rating: 2.5 stars

 

Synopsis:

The celebration isn't supposed to end in tragedy. The night of their high-school drama group's cast party starts out as fun for sisters Amy and Erin.
Their lives come crashing down when Amy takes the car to get more food and has a horrible accident. Erin and her family pray for Amy to awaken from her coma. But as the monitor bleeps and the respirator hisses, Amy lies somewhere between life and death.
Erin and her parents must find the courage to accept the fact that Amy's life-support system will never bring her back. When she dies, can the family give some meaning to her senseless death? Can Amy's dying become the hope for someone else's living?

 

Favourite character: Shara
Least favourite character: Erin 

 

Mini-review:

I struggled with this book. Erin didn't feel like a believable 17 year old and before you argue that everyone deals differently with grief, it wasn't just that. She was insufferable and unbelievable before her sister's accident. The author made her character appear stupid just to explain things to her younger audience, which to me is lazy. Will probably read the second book just to see where the whole thing goes.

 

Fan-cast:

Erin Bennett - Lili Reinhart

Amy Bennett - Joey King

Travis Sinclair - Noah Centineo

Shara Perez - Victoria Justice

Mrs. Bennett - Connie Neilson

Mr. Bennett - Dermot Mulroney

Beth Clark - Madison Davenport

 David - Jacob Latimore

Part of my reason for procrastinating this is because I'm going to see Avengers: Endgame tonight and honestly, I'm terrified.

This reads almost exactly like Lurlene McDaniel's other book, Why Did She Have To Die?.
