Books

  Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris : You never know who the narrator is but you still know the type. Everyone who works in a large office will recognize this mix of characters. What happens when this office culture is disturbed by a restructuring process and suddenly people are asked to leave makes people move closer together. I know what I am talking about, the same happened in my company. Missed a bit of more wit and laughter which is always to best to conquer these situations.

 

  Based on a True Story: Not a Memoir by Norm MacDonald : A read a review somewhere that if you don’t know the humor of Norm MacDonald then this is not the right book for you. I should have followed this advice because it was just not funny! At least not to me. I also looked into a couple of videos from his stand-up program and talk-show visits. Still we don’t share the same humor. As far as audio books go, this one was at least easy to follow.

 

  The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah : I had to start with the ending three times before I finally finished it because I was crying to hard. Definitely not a book you want to read in public, at least for the end. I loved the story of the two sisters who each did their bit in the French resistance even though they came differently about it. The book has a well researched note although some of the characters didn’t get deep enough for me. Well written and keeps you up at night.

 

  The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy : I read this book about 20 years ago for the first time and had to re-read for the book club. I couldn’t remember what it was about and only really remembered that it was long-winded. It still is although I enjoyed the story. Which was actually quite depressing and weird. I don’t get though why it needs to be so descriptive. This doesn’t do anything for the story and just looses the reader to boredom.
