This blog is my play area. I use it just to keep stuff sort of documented.
Surviving a Grizzly Attack in the Canadian Tundra. I give this book 3-4 stars. I felt the author was a little full of himself, but otherwise it was an engaging adventure read.
Enjoyable book. Not really a chronological story, but a collection of events. Before reading this, I didn't know about this relatively recent community of people seeking big waves. "Jaws," "Egypt," "Ghost Tree," etc. Very interesting. It's a worthwhile read.
This book is about a plane crash in Canada, and how it affected the lives of the survivors. I found it a little hard to follow, at times. I think the author sometimes used the men's' last names, and other times their first names. It was not the page turner I was...
Five stars for this little book! The beginning about eels and the author’s childhood was enthralling, followed by a somewhat boring middle, but the the last few chapters veer in to heart-felt spirituality. It’s translated from Swedish, which gives it a quaint European...
This true story kept my attention throughout. Great adventure book read, and how the modern day author tried to solved the mystery. Five stars of five!
The Untold Story of the World's Greatest Nuclear Disaster. April 25, 1986. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and learned how old nuclear reactors were crazy dangerous, but many were built, anyways. I learned that the unfolding disaster destroyed the Soviet Union.
Third book. I didn't like the forward or the Introduction, but the book itself was OK. Lots if iconically drawn WWII scenes of ships and soldiers. It wasn't a page-turner for me, but the longer it has been since I read it, the more I like it.
I enjoyed this quich read, with its' little charts.
