Books read in April 2012

by Cheryl Strayed — The story of someone hiking the Pacific Crest trail was the lure. She started this hike knowing nothing about long-distance hiking that I was surprised she stayed on the trail for more than one night. It’s a good book to read in the early spring — a great time to go hiking.

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith — A mystery set in the time at the time of the end of Stalin in the Soviet Union. The oppression and fear of that time is the strong theme I took from the story.

Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson — Finally. Long book that I enjoyed, but kept wondering if it couldn’t be at least 200 pages shorter.

 

Thinking, Fast and Slow  by Daniel Kahneman — It is an interesting book that challenges how questions are presented and data is interpreted. It is a dense book, best taken in small pieces.
