This week I finished 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed, by Eric H. Cline, a re-read of The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood, and The Ape that Understood the Universe, by Steve Stewart-Williams.

This week on the Drunk Guys Book Club Podcast we read All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr in honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Next week we'll read The Godfather, by Mario Puzo in honor of Father's Day. New episodes every Tuesday.

The Godfather, by Mario Puzo

Started this week. Never seen the movie and I really like it so far, but also I get really easily stressed out when I read stuff like this (and anything else).

All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr

Finished last week. Marie-Laure's relationship with her dad really tugged at my heartstrings. I think Daniel Leblanc and Frank Volkheimer were my favourite characters in it, but I also found the ending a bit unsatisfactory.

The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World, by Andrea Wulf

Finished yesterday. I picked up this book because I liked the cover but then kept reading despite having never heard of this dude. I'd say Humboldt is sort of portrayed like a mad scientist, but the book takes you through his life and just how much influenced how we see nature now.

Finished: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and The Godfather by Mario Puzo
The movie of the Godfather really is better than the book, but that doesn't mean it's not a good book :) as for the Handmaid's Tale, I was caught up on the TV series when I started so it was interesting to think about the direct quote placement throughout the series vs. When it occurs in the book.

Started: Brave New World by Aldolus Huxley

This week I finished Siege, by Michael Wolff and The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, by Stuart Turton. I liked them both.

Last week on the Drunk Guys Book Club Podcast was The Godfather, by Mario Puzo for Father's Day. This week is Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. New Episodes every Tuesday!

The Godfather, by Mario Puzo

I started my reread of this two days ago. Damn, I had completely forgotten how good this story is. I'm in the middle of Book 3 right now. So many good moments already. No part of it feels pointless or unnecessary (or even if it is, it is done so well, I don't mind it all). Strong characters. Good dialogue. Narration according to the scene. Very good and I have barely read half the book.

OK, I've kind of lost track of the days the last few weeks (work-related), but here's what I have lately:

Finished Animal Dreams, by Barbara Kingsolver, Under the Banner of Heaven, by Jon Krakauer, and The Godfather, by Mario Puzo. I strongly recommend all three, although The Poisonwood Bible is still my favorite of Kingsolver's books.

Started Winter in the Blood, by James Welch. Depressing so far, but well-written, and reading it while camped out in the Wyoming wilderness creates quite an impression.

The Godfather, by Mario Puzo

I felt the first part of the book was intense and well written up to the point where Michael had to kill the police captain and flee America. After that, the book started losing steam. Mario Puzo decided to give us some backstory about the Don, which I liked, but he then extended it to other characters. We were away from the main plot for so long that when he brought us back, the story just didn't have the same momentum. Although I interpret his decision as him trying to make us feel the passage of time. Instead of just telling us how many years had passed he chose to make us get a sense of that by steering us away from the main action for some time. That's how I felt though.

All in all, I enjoyed reading it, and no, I haven't seen the movie yet. Though I hear it's one of the greatest things to ever be put on screen.

Today also, I started

Fools Die, by Mario Puzo

Reading Fevre Dream, by George R.R. Martin as my Halloween read and listening to The Godfather, by Mario Puzo on my commute.

For 12/52 I started reading ** The Godfather, by Mario Puzo.**

It's been a while since I've seen the movie, so most of the material is new and fresh. However, it's impossible to imagine anyone other than Marlon Brando as The Godfather. 10/10 for casting on that one.

Hey there, my first post in this sub.

Just finished reading The Godfather, by Mario Puzo.

It isn't beautifully written but is exciting and delivers the same powerful presence than the movie achieves to do. It differs significantly from the movie, by the way, so it's worth reading.

Immediately, I began with The Outsider, by Stephen King.

In his most recent novel, King achieves to create a mysterious atmosphere where the worst will possibly happen to the characters. An hour of reading and I'm deeply intrigued.

Happy reading!
