Interesting look at the prison system, but cannot shake her constant need to recognize her privilege and the lack of same for her fellow inmates. I believe that the Netflix series did a better job of expressing the direness of the prison situation in this country.

Not a book to read casually, this novel about an adventuresome librarian who involuntarily travels through time and his artist wife, whose life follows the natural course is mesmerizing. I resisted this book recommendation from friends years ago as I originally found the timeline difficult to follow. I'm glad I gave this one a second chance!

JK Rowling's third novel in her Cormoran Strike series is the best one yet. This book kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat right up until the end.
