Hmm, I read too many books at once. But this one is going on the list. In a dystopian mood and currently reading Void Star among my other titles. Always a good sign when the Amazon reviews are all over the damn map.

Yeah that's a challenge. I stopped trying to keep them straight, thinking I'd gather it all up along the way, and by the end I sort of have it. I think part of the "Game" is how intertwined the houses are, and trying to figure out which way allegiances will fall with each new development. Then I looked at the Appendix where he sort of lays out family trees and I see there are more families to come that he hasn't even hinted at yet. Oy.

I loved reading it on the Kindle. His vocabulary, especially for little, everyday words that have just fallen out of fashion, is great, and I was able to look them up quickly and move on.
 
Here in our county, we have Heart Mountain. How it got that name is a mystery; some people say it's from the Native American name for it, or that its unique shape looks like a heart. On the oldest maps, it's Hart Mountain, and so there's a homesteader family named Hart that say it's named for them (but the maps predate the homesteaders).

A hart is an adult male deer. I did not know that. But I'll bet 19th century surveyors did.

A fascinating story about a surprisingly enlightened mind.  Whatever you may think about the tests themselves, the man was head and shoulders above Jung and Freud in thinking progressively about people (a low bar, I admit).  And, unlike Jung and Freud, Rorschach would pass my "I'd let you into my house party, even though you showed up uninvited" test (you might be surprised by who would NOT pass that test). There is an earnestness, a kindness to him that truly took me by surprise.

Once I finish this one (I confess to having been doing Sudoku puzzles at lunch instead of reading), this will be next (both books I won from LibraryThing):


Yes, this is what working in the mental health field does to you - and you folks don't help much, either!

"Jefferson's tombstone informs us that he founded the University of Virginia."  -Gore Vidal's Aaron Burr

Vidal's best novel, and a realistic telling of early American history for a change.

A missionary/linguist spent 30+ years in the Amazon. The linguistic study was a great success. He became the first outsider to learn this unusual language. But the missionary work was a total loss. Everybody in the tribe was happy, so nobody needed saving. Then he became an atheist, and his missionary wife left. Easily the best travel writing I ever read.
