This is one of those weeks where I'm buried under research papers to grade and I've been struggling to finish the same book for days, but I keep falling asleep while reading it. I hate those weeks.
The Walking Dead: Compendium Two
This is the second compendium of the Walking Dead graphic novels. This picks up where the current season picked up, too, so I really enjoyed seeing the ways the story arc was the same and the way it was different. Of course, it continues beyond where the TV show is now, so there may be possible spoilers, but honestly, there are vast differences between the novels and show. I really, really liked the direction in which it went, so I hope the TV show at least follows some of it!
In Paradise: A Novel
This was an interesting novel. A group of very diverse people embark upon a concentration camp retreat (this is a real thing, by the way, I googled it) and spend a week at Auschwitz touching upon matters of personal and national spirituality. They share why they're there, some more angrily than others, some not sure why, others still discovering. This is one of those slow-moving character driven novels. I really enjoyed it and found the subject matter itself fascinating. I have visited a concentration camp and found it a life-enhancing experience, but would I want to go on a concentration camp retreat? Probably not.
