March Reads (pt2)

I read too many book in March, if such a thing is possible! Here are my continued reads for the the month!

The Walking Dead, book One (covers the first 12 episodes) by Robert Kirkman. This is an intriguing read, the source material for the very popular tv show. However, it gave me nightmares and put me on edge. So I will not be reading any further in to the series. Not a commentary on the quality of the text, but on my own fragility.

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff. This graphic novel is fun and spirited. It was what I was reading to calm me down while I was reading tWD. While nothing ground breaking, the characters are quirky and endearing. I would definitely recommend this book as a fun beach book or to a pre-teen/younger reader who is just getting into graphic novels. Plus the art and lettering is just lovely.

Mema by Daniel M. Mengara. This is a tale of a boy and his mother, intertwined with the impact of colonization and changing face of village life in Gabon. At first I didn’t care for the writer’s style, but by the end, I enjoyed the un-smoothness. If you are looking for a quick read about Gabonese life, this is a solid choice, but certainly not a 5 star read.

Postage Due by Julie Marie Wade. I loved her most recent book so much I grabbed another of her works. This read like every other poetry collection I read by my classmates in grad school. Take that for what you will.

Eat Move Sleep by Tom Rath. I had to read it for work, otherwise I would never have finished it. If you read the title, you understood the entire content. It was overly simplistic, redundant, and outright ridiculous. I read parts of it out loud at work so my coworkers had to suffer with me. I cannot recommend this less.
