    Story
    (24)

    It took three tortured days in 1876 for Charles Bravo to die from the poison that burned its way through his body. The subsequent investigation revealed many people with a grudge against the young barrister. The dramatic inquest was covered in sensational detail by the press, but no one was convicted of his murder. Over a century later, James Ruddick draws on new evidence to solve one of the most famous murders in criminal history.

    This was a wonderful non-fiction murder mystery. Great book to take along when you are going on a long walk.

    A city is hit by a sudden and strange epidemic of "white blindness", which spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there social conventions quickly crumble and the struggle for survival brings out the worst in people.

    I selected this book upon the announcement of Jose Saramago's death. I wish I had discovered his writing earlier. The character development was great.

    Just after a man falls in the snow and hits his head on a stone curb, a ghost arrives to take his soul to the afterlife. But something strange occurs: the man doesn't die. Flabbergasted, the ghost appeals to his boss for further direction and is instructed to stay with the man until the strange "problem" is worked out.

    Brien says: "Interesting writing style, complex story"

    This is a must read. Jonathan Carroll weaves a great story. I wish there were more available on Audible.com

    "I am alone in the dark, turning the world around in my head as I struggle through another bout of insomnia, another white night in the great American wilderness." So begins Paul Auster's brilliant, devastating novel about the many realities we inhabit as wars flame all around us.

    lynn says: "I only buy Paul Auster self narrated books now"
    "Man in the Dark Review"
    Overall

    Paul Auster continues to deliver incredible stories. This story was hard to put down
