What about volumes 1 and 2?

I read volumes 1 and 2 earlier this year. They're excellent too. Rick Atkinson's "The Liberation Trilogy" is also excellent. Mr. Atkinson's books are about the war in North Africa, Italy, and Western Europe.

Hyperion by Dan Simmons. A sci-fi classic that somehow eluded me. So far so good, but I have just started it. Very engaging and novel premise.

I am reading Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower about al Qaeda & 9/11. It is a big book (700+ pages) but I am very impressed with the detail/research that went into the book. I am about 20% into it so far.

Just started: Emily Dickinson's Poems, As She Preserved Them (2016) edited by Cristanne Miller.

Why am I reading this 800+ page book of poetry? I remember as a high school student reading one of Emily Dickenson's poems in an English class and being really impressed by it. I have not been able to find a copy of it in all these years, perhaps because I have not tried very hard. I don't remember anything about the poem, other than I liked it despite taking a bit of grief for my sissy-like behavior in participating in the class discussion.

My hope is two-fold:
1. Find that poem!
2. Run across another that I find equally compelling.

There are over 1000 poems in the book so I had better pace myself.

So far, only a few pages in, one single line of her poetry jumped out at me:
  • Night is the morning's canvas
It is an image I can see.

Interesting fact: Emily Dickinson did not formally publish ANY of her poetry. She did keep extensive hand-written copies (thus the "as she preserved them" in the book title) and she included poems in letters to family and acquaintances. What has been found of these are also included in the book.

The poems mostly do not have titles. The book indexes them by first lines. The first line of the poem with the above quote is "The feet of people walking home" so anyone with the book can find that poem in the index of first lines.

My Cousin Rachel
by Daphne du Maurier

An intriguing novel set in 19th century England. A
young heir to an estate is puzzled then mesmerized
by the widow of his late cousin and benefactor. You
are never quite sure who is the villain or the victim
as ambiguities abound. Two films have been made
(1952 & 2017) based on this book.

Many of her poems were written in common meter so you can entertain yourself and others by singing those to tunes such as gilligan's island or the yellow rose of texas.

Yes it does! Maybe even more like the structure of The Alexandria Quartet (though I have not gotten far enough into Hyperion to say these things for certain- more an inkling). And so far it seems very well written. Did you enjoy it?

According to the editor's introduction, Dickinson favored an 8,6,7,6 meter (beats or syllables per line) but it looks like there is a LOT of variation on that.

Cuba: an American History, by Ada Ferrer.

The author is a Cuban-Ameican historian, born in Cuba, emigrated to the U.S. as a child in 1963, and educated in the U.S.

This is a history from the time of Columbus to the current day, covering the many Cuban revolutions and revolts both in colonial times and after independence from Spain, noting the constant interaction between the Spanish colony/Cuba and the British colonies/U.S.

As far as I can tell the book seems factually accurate and as even-handed as anyone could reasonably expect. It gives extensive space to discussion of both the history of interference in Cuba by the U.S. under the Platt Amendment following Cuba's independence from Spain, and of the brutality, aggression, and many failures of the Castro regime and revolution.

Antifragile, someone mentioned it in a post on this board.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifragile_(book)

Pretty interesting so far, but the prologue was in a very stream-of-consciousness style that is different than the rest of the book. I was worried the entire book would be like that but was relieved it was not when I hit the first chapter. I'm in IT and while I try to build resilient systems I'm not sure they are antifragile, I guess that is where ML and AI come in. It will be an interesting day when software becomes antifragile and can resist our attempts to shut it down. :)

If anyone has a particular interest in World War 2, this book about “General” Wendell Fertig and his guerrillas in Mindanao in the Philippines is very interesting.

I was #1 on my library list for the Hillary Clinton, Louise Penny book State of Terror, just out. Started reading as an ebook and so far its a good story. Very different from Penny's usual novels.

It's just after the change of administrations in Washington, essentially current day. The new President and his Sec of State are not on best of terms. Then things go bad.

It got a good review in today's NYT. I'm interested in how the WSJ will review it. The reviews (only 12 so far) on Amazon seem to have a high degree of Hillary bias: roughly half are 4 and 5 *, the rest are 1*.

I like it so far and recommend it.

I've enjoyed both James Patterson/Bill Clinton books, the first more than the second, both both are good.

Lets see which Clinton does better in sales.

Oh, that's the one about Marconi. Fantastic. Of all the books of his I've read, I liked it best. Of course I always want more on the engineering, science, and technology, and less on the crime.

Yeah, I always get it wrong, too: apparently his first name is Erik-with-a-K but his last name is Larson-with-an-O.

The Hunting Wind, by Steve Hamilton.

An ex-Detroit police officer lives in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. An old buddy from his days in minor league baseball resurfaces after 30 years, and asks help in finding a former girlfriend. The search for the lost love moves to Detroit and then small-towns near Lake Michigan, with lots of plot twists.

An often overlooked fact is that many of the Caribbean colonies had large Jewish populations (some approaching 50%). The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton by Andrew Porwancher explores this connection with the idea that Hamilton himself had a Jewish background. It then goes on to explore Hamilton's career and Jewish history during and after the Revolution.

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing — by John C. Bogle, where he methodically and persuasively presents his argument for the overwhelming advantages of index investing. I borrowed the e-book from my local public library. I know I’m preaching to the choir here but I’m enjoying the book.

Finished this today. I'll amend my comments above to reflect that the good story at the start went downhill for me. It's got a story, but also a very partisan agenda. I would not recommend it for most readers.

Ghost Soldiers - Hampton Sides

Well-written account of the raid by elements of the 6th Ranger Battalion on the Cabantanuan POW camp to rescue 500+ prisoners in 1944 before they were killed by the retreating Japanese army. The book alternates between the details of the planning and execution of the raid, and the suffering and atrocities faced by the prisoners on the Bataan Death March and life in the brutal POW camps. One fascinating new thing I learned was about the existence of the Alamo Scouts, an elite reconnaissance group that operated behind Japanese lines in order to gather intelligence. The scouts executed over 100 missions and never lost a man, whether killed or captured. The intelligence they gathered on the layout of the POW camp was critical to the success of the raid.

Madame Fourcade's Secret War: The Daring Young Woman Who Led France's Largest Spy Network Against Hitler - Lynne Olson

A somewhat dry, factual, but at times dull account of Marie Fourcade, a courageous woman who took over leadership of the French "Alliance" espionage network after the original leader was arrested, despite all the resistance she faced due to her gender. At it's peak, the network had about 3000 agents, before it was gradually taken apart by German anti-espionage efforts. The book depicts the politics in Vichy France, the collaboration with English intelligence sources, the intelligence successes despite the constant fear of being arrested and tortured by the Germans.

I should know better than to read this thread, or the movies/TV/sci-fi threads, since I can't keep up with what I'm supposed to be reading.

One excuse is that things like Dan Simmons' Hyperion, structured like the Canterbury Tales, or Sinclair Lewis' It Can't Happen Here might be shoehorned into some of the courses I teach. Hey, if I even mention them in class I can tell myself it was research, right?

What I'm reading, that is not work related, is Richard M. Bookstaber, A Demon of Our Own Design. Kind of surprising myself since I have nowhere enough math to know what he's talking about, but then apparently people who were handling serious amounts of money didn't either and couldn't bring themselves to admit it or to care whose houses they burned down. Will probably tackle his new one, The End of Theory just because that's a satisfying thought. (Literary theory was my grey-haired grad student acne!) Back to work.

Check out these two books.

TIGHTROPE by Nicholas D. Kristol. Mr. Kristol just resigned from The New York Times and is expected to run for governor of Oregon. Growing up on a farm in Yamhill, Oregon he went to Harvard when many of his neighbors' kids never finished high school and died from alcohol, drugs, obesity or went to prison. These were white boys and girls, too. Wow.

American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin

(In Greek mythology, Prometheus is a Titan god of fire. Prometheus is credited with defying the gods by stealing fire and giving it to humanity).

I’d always meant to read this biography as I find Oppenheimer an interesting character. He was the father of the atomic bomb, leading the effort in Los Alamos in WWII to beat the Germans to the bomb. He became so obsessed with the problem that he kept up the effort at full speed even after the end of the European war. Then, after the two atomic bombings of Japan, he felt deep remorse, saying “I feel I have blood on my hands”. He spoke about containing the technology and opposed the development of the “super”, or H-bomb. This was contrary to American policy at the time and for this he was sidelined and lost his security clearance, which was a great personal blow.

The man was a genius. If he wanted to read a foreign book, he wouldn’t read a translation, he would first learn the language the book was written in, then read the book. For example he learned Sanskrit in order to read the Bhagavad Gita in the original.

The author Martin Sherwin died recently which brought this title back to mind. I checked a copy out of my local public library.

"Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine," by Robert Lustig., MD. You may have seen or heard of the Youtube video that went viral and put Dr. Lustig on the map: "Sugar: The Bitter Truth." He is also the author of two previous books, "Fat Chance" and the "The Hacking of the American Mind" both of which I have read and found interesting. So when I saw that he had a new book, I had to get it.

Dr. Lustig is outspoken and can get ranty, and it seems this tendency has accelerated since he has retired from UCSF Medical Center. He would guess he feels fewer constraints. This can get tiresome, but nonetheless I find the book to be of high interest and recommend it.
