The Graves Are Walking

The Graves Are Walking: The Great Famine and the Saga of the Irish People by John Kelly. VERY interesting discussion of the causes of the Hunger. I was struck by how simlilar comments by the British towards the Irish were to some political discourse we've seen this political season. I think there's a column for me there . . .

Description from Amazon:
It started in 1845 and before it was over more than one million men, women, and children would die and another two million would flee the country. Measured in terms of mortality, the Great Irish Potato Famine was the worst disasters in the nineteenth century—it claimed twice as many lives as the American Civil War. A perfect storm of bacterial infection, political greed, and religious intolerance sparked this catastrophe. But even more extraordinary than its scope were its political underpinnings, and The Graves Are Walking provides fresh material and analysis on the role that Britain’s nation-building policies played in exacerbating the devastation by attempting to use the famine to reshape Irish society and character. Religious dogma, anti-relief sentiment, and racial and political ideology combined to result in an almost inconceivable disaster of human suffering.
This is ultimately a story of triumph over perceived destiny: for fifty million Americans of Irish heritage, the saga of a broken people fleeing crushing starvation and remaking themselves in a new land is an inspiring story of revival.

I thought the ending of Gone Girl screwed up the whole book. Except for the last chapter, I loved the book.

Currently, I'm reading "Odd Hours" by Dean Koontz. I'm really big on his books.

"The Panther" by Nelson DeMille. If you've never read anything by Mr. DeMille, you owe it to yourself to check out his novels. He mixes edge-of-your-seat suspense with laugh-out-loud wit!

Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell. Pretty good and twisted so far.
