This book is a series of stories told to a UN attache years after the rise and fall of a zombie breakout. It's told chronologically, told by people from all walks of life, with many different professions - the chinese doctor who was one of the first to see a zombie, the soldier who fought an epic battle humans lost, the ex-pat self-exiled on the south pole who saw a zombie outbreak to sell essentially a placebo as a vaccine against zombies. Some of the characters tell more than one story, others you hear from just once. They all have powerful stories to tell and have strong voices, so for me it was easy to keep everyone straight.
While the subjects are being interviewed, technically, the interviewer literally doesn't have much of a presence. Every once in a while the story interrupts when he asks a question, but the impression you get is that he just put down a tape recorder and asked the interviewee for stories.
The thing that is also fascinating about the story is the geopo...
The author of this book has brilliantly reconstructed the events that led to the financial crisis and economic crisis but especially highlighted the focus on ethical and cultural values ​​of our times.
I recommend this book to everyone who wants to better understand what has happened and who recognize the value of this amazing writer and professional.
The Outcast, Jolina Petersheim
This was a fabulous book about being an outcast, the black sheep of the family or in this case the outcast of the whole community. Rachel Stoltzfus moves to Tennessee to be with her sister and her family in order to help care for her. But she soon finds herself pregnant and unwed. This is a big no-no in the Old Order Mennonite community. When she is exiled she is taken in by the owner of the local Amish Store, where she is welcomed and loved despite her sin. Her newborn son Eli is diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Eli’s only hope is a bone marrow transplant. But in order to have it Rachel will have to tell her deep dark secret of who the father is.
Part of this story is told by the recently deceased Bishop Amos King. Who happens to be in heaven and the father to the new Bishop. He has an interesting view of the situation. I enjoyed his view of the infidelity and tragedy that takes place.
The author Jolina Petersheim did a great job of ret...

This non-fiction book by Alejandro Estrada is unlike any other book you'll ever read. Everything in this book is real and It's been banned by Wikipedia and the Order of Freemasonry. This is the biggest Whistleblowing Truther, since the Pelican Brief.
I love to read mysteries, historical fiction, classics and young adult fiction, but I have never read westerns or science fiction novels. it's time to branch out and give these other genres a try. Does anyone have suggestions for novice (and wary) sci-fi and western readers?
Try out Brent Weeks, his Shadow Trilogy is a great start for a new fantasy read, keeps the overwhelming fantasy elements scant, tells a great story with relatable characters, and is great for a re-read.
Try reading Author Rusty Nugent. He is a Dark Fantasy writer. The title of the book series is Moonwarriors. It's an good werewolves vs evil vampires series. It is the best novel I have read from a new author.
I may have missed it but I don't see Elmore Leonard's name among the Western writers' names in the recommendations. I think you might enjoy his Westerns. He's known for his more modern works (action? crime? He's really hard to categorize) but he used to be a very prolific western writer - my husband is a huge fan of all of his work and my father loved his Westerns. By now you've probably discovered a few more writers so please come back and share!
