Only for political reasons

I can't make it out the writing is too small, does it say The Holy Duran ? if it has anything to do with Simon Le Bon then it's a no from me

He dies at the end.

This was a gift from my sister who's undergrad is in psychology. I don't agree with everything he says, mostly because he's an atheist who can't comprehend how a theist can be intelligent or happy. But I respect his principles, he's intellectually honest and as a result of this book, I deleted my Twitter account. Worth every penny for that. :D

Haven't read it yet, but I do love a good 'mountaineering disaster' book. My bookshelf is full of them, surprised she was able to find one I haven't already read :D

Finished this in six weeks (read most of it during the final two weeks of Trump's Presidency, the last third over the last four weeks):

Really enjoyed it.  Should be required reading for anyone taking a civics class. 

Obama does a great job of explaining what it means to be President in the 21st century.  Whether you agreed with his politics or not, he lays out his though process on some of the biggest decisions during his Presidency.  

The last chapter is surprisingly suspense filled and just flat out perfect storytelling; juxtaposing the dangers of one threat being put down (Osama bin Laden) with the rise of a new threat (Trump).  

Very recommended.

It's a fictional fever dream in which Carrey's fantastical mind and moments from his life are intertwined.

Really different but thoroughly enjoying it.  Definitely not for everyone.  Has a stream of conscious dynamic that may not appeal to some.  Extremely absurd and at times very dry (but also funny).  

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoyed Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind.  It has a similar vibe.
