Review: The Crew

The Crew The Crew by Joseph Kessel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really interesting look at war, relationships, and friendships. I read this after finishing an account of the Mary Celeste, and was looking for another "Ghost Ship" sort of thing. This was very different, but also very good.

Review: Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring

Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring by Alexander Rose
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I decided to read this book after getting hooked on AMC's new show "Turn" (based on this book). In all honesty, I would have been pretty lost if I didn't have the show to lean on. There are SO MANY CHARACTERS in this book. I was able to keep up because of the show, but the show is just very loosely based on the book.

Fun history, but I am going to look around for something a little easier to read.
