Books of December

On Desperate Ground:  This is the true story, told in startling detail of, of a Marine division trapped in the winter snow and surrounded by Chinese soldiers during the Korean War.  I'm not a reader of war chronicles, but it was listed as one of the best books of 2018 so I downloaded it on my Kindle, and it was riveting and inspiring.

The Liar's Wife:  It was listed on Amazon as a taut psychological thriller, but it was a poorly written book that tries to trick the reader until the Great Reveal at the end.  Not sure why I finished it.  Don't waste your time.

The Stranger in the Woods:  Another non-fiction book.  Can you imagine a man living in the Maine woods for 27 years with no human contact at all except one brief moment when he encountered some hikers and managed a brief "hello."  How he was found and what happened next are fascinating.  Did the author exploit him?  Read and see what you think.
