enealogical Crime Mystery Book Club

Whether “Winter’s Dead” is, strictly speaking, a genealogical exercise will up be up to the reader, I suspect, but when Detective Fletcher Strand realizes that a murder committed in 1924 has much to do with the spate of killings on his turf in 1990, a deep dive in to the family histories of more than one person, including his own wife, his world turns upside down.

A prime suspect is Eddie Snyder who’s escaped from a state institution, and he’s out for revenge. Is he the one who’s murdered two an old couple and two young boys? Why is he doing it?

Honestly, if I had time to read, I would re-read 1984 from George Orwell and The Handmaids Tale from Margret Atwood. They were both gloomy and kind of depressing to read still … I think I read both books in the mid 80s. Somehow, I want to know how I think about them 40 years later. If we got closer to what seemed like, people would be too alert to let things like that happen.

Atwood’s book was made into a movie by Volker Schlöndorff and Orwell’s by Michael Radford.

For some impressions there is a song of the soundtrack called 1984 by Eurythmics

The soundtrack of the Schlöndorff movie was done by Ryūichi Sakamoto.

I won’t sugar coat it, these are neither easy to read nor to watch, but I wouldn’t say that avoiding them should be the consequence. Sometimes I think it is necessary to leave the comfort zone and for once not for zombies, but zombies in human form. Gives you a lot of stuff to think about.

take the time to read is what I am saying

#156

If I find 30 minutes left over the day, I will put my feet up relax with some music and give my eyes some rest.


#157

I am reading Pachinko and “La coscienza di Zeno” (Zeno’s conscience)!


#160

maybe I am wrong in my thinking, but here goes, now we have a Kindle, you can get free books, and doesn’t waste space, BUT to touch, feel those said books, dog-ear the books, smell the books, it to me just isn’t the same. I miss the physical books!!


#161

I am with you 100%. I CAN read a book on my Kindle, but I much prefer to hold the book in my hand. I don’t know about everyone else, but I often flip back to previous parts of a book to remind myself of things or whatever (like looking at maps in books that contain such), and it’s so much harder on a Kindle.

BTW, I picked up a book to read for the first time in a while. It’s called “By the Book” by Julia Sonneborn. It’s a light, easy read so far.

UPDATE: Finished that book and also finished another: “Verity” by Colleen Hoover. That was a doozie, in a good way. Finished it in a day because I couldn’t put it down.

That’s two books in one week. I think it has been years since I have accomplished that.


#162
