Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel. What if our world really is just a simulation? An OK tale but not a knockout.
The Year of Peril: America in 1942 by Tracy Campbell. Interesting look at the stresses in American society in 1942. We look back now and feel like our victory in WWII was inevitable and that all Americans pulled together. Reality is much messier.
The Overstory by Richard Powers. I don’t get it. Plodding. Couldn’t be bothered to finish it.
