Reading Challenge, Book 4

The North Water: A Novel by Ian McGuire.

Gripping.  Great sentences.  Grab the dictionary before reading for the occassional archaic term.  5 stars.

Am behind on my count because I started James Michener's Alaska - also engaging, like a good anthropology class- and got to the Russians' arrival before putting it down (not actually moving to Alaska has dampened my interests in its history).  I haven't met any recurring characters so can pick it up without too much trouble if I care to down the road.

Now on How to Talk Minnesotan by Howard Mohr (revised for the 21st Century).  Thanks, Chaddy, for the original.
