In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin

Deek Rivers, January 1, 2013

I'm a slow reader by nature. I'll start a book, read a little, put it down, return to it, rinse and repeat. This one was different. I've never come across a book that had the particular framework as this one: the story of an American family, transplanted to Germany, the father hastily appointed ambassador to Germany as Hitler's rise to power takes place. I finished it late into the evening of the second day, and can recommend it as a engrossing story of national events and family dynamics; it felt like the author was asking me, what would you do if you were in their place?

Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free by Charles P Pierce
Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free

Deek Rivers, January 2, 2012

Read this before you go vote in 2012. An owner's guide to what has happened to American politics in our lifetimes, Charles Pierce uses humor, sarcasm, outrage, and actual reporting to explain what happens and who gets hurts when democracy is put on automatic pilot. You'll laugh till it hurts. And it will.
