The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The Road

Tim Cook, January 1, 2010

It's been a couple of years since I read this book and it is still with me. The stark landscapes, dialogue, and relationship between the man and boy are not easily forgotten. Easily my favorite book of the decade.

How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter by Sherwin B. Nuland
How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter

Tim Cook, April 25, 2009

I read this book for the Death and Dying class I teach. It is a very touching, practical, and accessible into what happens to people dying of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, and other common ailments. I particularly liked the weaving of personal stories into the scientific explanations. This is a good read for anyone who fears the dying process and wants to learn more about it.

The Darker Side by Cody McFadyen
The Darker Side

Tim Cook, April 25, 2009

I bought this at a used book sale and am glad I did. A suspenseful, creepy, well written serial killer novel. The characters are well developed and I particularly liked the team of detectives that tracks the killer. I lost a night of sleep finishing this book, which is one of my criteria for a great thriller. I will be reading more of this author.

Citadel of the Spirit: Oregon's Sesquicentennial Anthology Signed Edition by Matt Love
Citadel of the Spirit: Oregon's Sesquicentennial Anthology Signed Edition

Tim Cook, April 25, 2009

Editor, Matt Love, describes this anthology as an old school mix tape of Oregon stories. I think that is an apt description. There are Oregon favorites, new surprises and a clunker here or there. If you're an Oregonian or want to know more about what makes them tick then take a look at this book. I particularly liked "Give me the damn letter", and "The Mayor's Ball", "Next year I think I will train", and "Stomping Ground".

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01) by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01)

Tim Cook, April 25, 2009

This is a great read. It reminded me of Takami's Battle Royale, in terms of content. It's considered a young adult novel and it is engaging throughout. I found myself rooting for the main character and was pleasantly surprised by the various plot twists. This is a hard one to put down. I also highly recommend the author's Gregor the Overlander series.
