Book Review :Wayward( Pines 2 ) by Blake Crouch

Hi,
Do you remember Wayward part 1?  So I read part 2....It is was so much better. More actions, details a bout the society and the conundrum is explain. The author creates a 3 dimensional society. The characters are not those card board evil or good people but complex and at some part  chilling individuals.


A summary from Goodread:


"Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. Nestled amidst picture-perfect mountains, the idyllic town is a modern-day Eden...except for the electrified fence and razor wire, snipers scoping everything 24/7, and the relentless surveillance tracking each word and gesture.
None of the residents know how they got here. They are told where to work, how to live, and who to marry. Some believe they are dead. Others think they’re trapped in an unfathomable experiment. Everyone secretly dreams of leaving, but those who dare face a terrifying surprise.

Ethan Burke has seen the world beyond. He’s sheriff, and one of the few who knows the truth—Wayward Pines isn’t just a town. And what lies on the other side of the fence is a nightmare beyond anyone’s imagining.
"


If you like dystopia book , it is the right story for you. Part 2 is stronger and a better attention grabber than Book 1. This is why I give Book 2 a solid 4 out of 5 stars.


Bonne lecture!

What I learned in May

I found this reflection very helpful to be close to God.  Fr Leo talks about the 5 C :content(faith), conflict( doing his will and not ours), conversation( God is in us , we are never alone), cooperation( with our Lord, I am alive in Him) and contribution( I will bring something of him into the world).  Let's write an unfinished symphony!

baguettes et petites joies

I always felt that baguettes are best left for the professionals( how French of me, right?) however I found this great blog with video http://karine-cuisine.blogspot.fr/2016/02/les-baguettes.html. So I tried it and

You will need a morning or afternoon.  The process is rather long but not difficult.  Also there is huge room for improvement in my design, it was a hit with the family.
