    I read the original series a few years ago and enjoyed it. I might have to add this to my list. But I might have to re-read the series or find another quicker/easier way to recap the characters and storyline before reading this.

    Audible is great for long drives! I've been trying to do that during my 50min each way commute every weekday. Cannot yet listen to fiction, but I'm really getting into non-fiction.

    I just finished reading/listening to this a couple days ago, the author narrated it himself. I thought it was great and I should have read it back when Andy originally recommended it in this thread. I read it when I saw his recommendation on Facebook right after the election.

    Same thoughts here Brian. I just finished it today and I'm glad I read this sooner rather than later.

    I'm glad you guys read that book. Being here in fly-over country (although in the much better off part of the state), working in the industrial sector, I thought he captured the feel pretty well. For me it bookends with Between the World and Me. I don't have to agree with these people nor their policy positions, I think it just helps to understand their priorities.

    I have a few books downloaded to the kindle app on the iPad, but I have not even began reading yet. I bought a fire tablet on sale around Christmas, and I want to transfer the books to it rather than carrying the iPad around. Little 7" screen seems adequate for light reading.

    It was $33

    Kids have nooks, but we don't have any Kindles in the family.

    The iPad I use is actually a work iPad, although I never use it for that purpose, since it sucks for that, and no longer even carrying it since it makes the backpack too heavy with the laptop and the other stuff in there.

    The Last Policeman: A Novel (Last Policeman Trilogy Book 1)

    I've read the first two books this week. Not exactly challenging reading but they are enjoyable. Kind of enjoyable. You see, the book is about a cop investigating a murder made to look like a suicide just months before the Earth is going to be impacted by a 7 km. wide asteroid, killing most--not all--people. That possibility of living somehow makes those final days worse. If everyone is going to die, you just live out your time the best you can. If you may survive, life is driven by a bestial hording and constant violence. So it ends up being a story of a guy trying to do his job while the world unravels around him.

    Now, added to me reading this while I'm on a business trip--which I hate--and listening to podcasts about the start of WW1 and, well, my general outlook on life and humanity was slightly less than jolly.

    Anyway, a very nicely written series so far. The tone is, for lack of a better term, modern conversational-comedic like that used in The Martian, for example. It isn't laugh out loud funny but it is clever. Worth a few hours time that it takes to go through it.

    Dan Carlin's Blueprint for Armageddon. The first one gives you the setup and then the other episodes go further into the quagmire. I'm on the third episode--they're three hours or so long each--and he hasn't really dealt with the Eastern front or pretty much anything about the first month in Serbia. Central Europe and the Balkans are some of the most consistently depressing areas in world history.
