My 2018 reading list was filled with really amazing selections and some very long books! Looking forward to 2019.
The list of the books I rated with 5 out of 5 stars on my Goodreads list for 2018.
|Breakfast of Champions||Vonnegut, Kurt||Fantastic satire, really loved the way this book was structured.|
|A Life in Parts||Cranston, Bryan||Audio book read by the author, actor. Beautiful insights into his life and his art.|
|The Gene: An Intimate History||Mukherjee, Siddhartha||Fascinating history of the science behind the basic building blocks of life. Critical for understanding the medical and scientific innovations that are coming (may be here already).|
|The Count of Monte Cristo||Dummas, Alexandre||The mother of all serial stories.|
|The Magic Mountain||Mann, Thomas||There is no reasonable way to explain this Nobel Prize Winning book from the 1920s. But I loved it.|
Honorable mentions from the 4-star books:
- The Color of Magic, Terry Prachett
- Hillbilly Elegy, J. D. Vance
- Nerd Do Well, Simon Pegg
