I just finished listening to Ordinary Grace by William Kent Kreuger. It's about a family in 1961 from the eyes of a 13 year old boy. The events of the summer shape him and his family profoundly. He weaves the stories of the characters and the town beautifully and leaves much to reflect upon. The boy is the son of a Methodist preacher which adds to the reflection. It had a powerful ending.

Recently read David Badachie's No Man's Land ... a grand fiction on a superman raging within the composition of the psyche that is excluded to space-time fiction.

The deep hole of the mine'd domain is difficult to get into without a fall ... resembling Joseph's Well giving access to AEgyptian imagination. Once into it you could be hooked on understanding alien's tuff!

Anyone see the article on the great Blue Hole in the tropics? That Virgin Millionaire is said to find disappointment at the bottom 've it! Keep it a mystery is the rule ... ordinary people shouldn't know ... why powers despite literary powers. Some world powers don;t even have an inclination to read superficially ... thus fasci ... the sense of buttoning up certain aspects of humanity!

Silence my old friend makes this odd negative racket in my head ... compared to motivism ... could that be an outside thought just shimmering there in the darkness of soul?

Gott love odd essays and allegorical literature ... common essays! Let us rite the wrong ... On People ... a lengthy essays to say least!

I would label the collection: Gospel of the 3rd Millennium! Could crowd out the Caduceus as a false duality! Very snaky ...

Was starting to read Jade City by Fonda Lee and may try to continue with the ebook from the library.
Did in fact carry on with this though still not done. It's a terrific novel. Lots of plotting and intrigue, action scenes are brief, fast-paced and bloody. The real appeal though is the Kaul family, three blood siblings and an adopted fourth, who are battling to save both their clan and their society when a rival starts a ruthless play for power. They aren't classically heroic and can be pretty ruthless and deadly themselves, but are also quite well-rounded, interesting people. Reviews I have seen of book 2 make it sound like she's kept the quality up, too.

Some old sage said that power corrupts ... the kind of nonsense from some sources will bring you to your knees in a rage of giggles!
