What was the last book you read?

I just finished a book called Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. I'll admit, I didn't think I would like it at first but I couldn't put it down! Even though it's geared more towards teens and young adults, I think it's something anyone could enjoy. It was full of action which is different from the type of books I normally read. I really recommend it for anyone who enjoys adventure type books. The next book I'm planning to read is called Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate.

What was the last book you read and did you like it? Would you recommend it to others?

  • Decision Point by Dan Brown. This book is a suspense/thriller by the author of The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. Great reading - a real page turner.

    Also recommend "What Happened" which is Hillary Clinton's account of what she feels went wrong in the 2016 election.

    Since three is a charm let me add one more: "Hillbilly Eligy" by J. D. Vance whose personal biography gives vision to the mindset of many embattled white men who feel threatened by the emerging power of women and other minorities.

    Happy reading Honey Bee!

  • Haven'tn really read books in a little while.. maybe I'll pick one up for a change. I think the last one I finished was The Art Of War. Very interesting book and some of the advice can really be applied to many areas in life. Recommend reading it, but it's better to do it in smaller portions and think about it.

  • The magicians guild by Trudi Canavan
    I loved this book so much and I just couldn't put it down. I'm so excited to read the second book. I can only recommend it to fantasy fans. People that read the a court of thorns and roses trilogy could like it as a medium read, as the book is just 500 pages.

    • Nice! I like a wide variety of genres when it comes to books, maybe I'll check it out. :)

  • Quantum Night by Robert Sawyer. It's a sci-fi where, in attempting to make a machine that reads our inner voices (thoughts, if you will), a scientist discovers that most of humanity (about 3/4) has no inner voice. No thoughts. Most of humanity are just highly elaborate bots that pass the Turing test spectacularly. Haunting.

    I am about to start reading The Day After the Day After: My Atomic Angst by Steven Church. It's an autobiography about Church's childhood, growing up in Lawrence Kansas. Like most children, he was scared of many things, but his fear achieved monstrous proportions with the airing of this movie...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VG2aJyIFrA

    That was a clip from the TV movie The Day After. It tried to take a serious and realistic look at what nuclear war would look like. It's set in Lawrence, Kansas, the author's home town. My interest was piqued because I was a teenager when this movie was shown. It was a cultural phenomenon. Most of America watched it when it aired. Everyone talked about it the next day. Like the author, the images struck me very deeply.

    Such was life growing up during the Cold War. (In my best grumpy old man voice) I tell ya, you kids today...

  • "Tegen verkiezingen". It's a book in which some journalists argues against the way the representative parliament is set up. He says it's effectively an elected oligarchy rather than a democracy.

    A more normal book that I've read is 'As in Tas'. It's basically a book about some bloke cycling to the Mediterranean to commemorate the loss of his dad.

    Both are Dutch though. I'd recommend them for people who can read it

    • As in Tas is a pretty great book that one can easily read in one sitting. The writing style is amazing and it involves some great jests, yet also has a very serious component to it.

    • Sounds interesting! Even though I wouldn't be able to read it. Lol

    • Yes, it's quite an interesting book. Both are

  • Well, this question has been asked far too much and, it should be reported as a duplicate question.
    Or, you can be biased for your particular questions.
    My answer would be Wizard of Oz tho.

  • Last good book I read was The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. It was mesmerising and definitely would recommend. You can understand how and why Andrew Lloyd Webber would choose to write the play he did and how this story survived to this point and will go on further than ever could of been expected.

  • I read 7 Deadly Sins of Wall Street by Bob Ivory. I recommend this book to everyone. I support capitalism just not crony capitalism, so this book provided me a good outlook on the American economy especially with passage of recent tax reform bill.

    • Yes, for sure! I thought it was really interesting and even though it's fiction, I agree that it gave pretty good insight into the lives of people and families affected by Asperger's.
