April BookEndz bookclub choice. I found this enlightening regarding everyday life in Nazi Germany. Parallels are seen in another set of lives, years later, in the American SW as a couple comes to grips with the man's job which requires rounding up and deporting illegal Mexican immigrants. Lots to think about.
Cloud Atlas: A Novel. This is one of the most interesting, well written books I've ever read. It's strange, but that is part of it's charm. It consists of a series of stories that are completely unrelated, and yet they each have a tie-in to the story before. The writing is amazing. It's hard to believe 1 author could have written all the styles represented. Check it out.
