Adult Winter Reading Program: Most Commented Titles

The Ghost Map
The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson (Other Nonfiction)
Johnson recounts the investigation of an 1854 cholera epidemic in London and how this scourge led to determining the cause (and the solution) of this preventable disease. Importantly, the author shows how faulty thinking can lead to erroneous conclusions, and uses the cholera epidemic to demonstrate similar disagreements in modern times (the climate change debate being one example). This is a thought provoking book and is the Critical Mass book group selection for February,2017. -- Added by Jhusain on 02/01/2017

I read this last year as part of a book discussion group. It is a fascinating compendium of science and the atmosphere of the time. -- Konsulentin on 02/14/2017  
The Man with a Load of Mischief
The Man with a Load of Mischief by Martha Grimes (Mystery/Suspense)
This book introduces Inspector Richard Jury in the first of Martha Grimes' long series of British mysteries, each titles with the name of a pub. Two deaths have occurred in the small village of Long Piddleton with the bodies bizarrely displayed. After Inspector Jury arrives on the scene, more murders occur and the Inspector and his trusty, hypochondriachal Sergeant Wiggins must unravel the clues to find the perpetrator. This is the novel which also begins the fascinating partnership of Jury and Melrose Plant, an aristocrat who has spurned his title and seeks more intellectual pursuits. This book was well-written with LOTS of humor sprinkled in. -- Added by ERobinson on 01/31/2017

Truly Madly Guilty
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty (Other Fiction)
Like others who commented on the book, it drove me nuts waiting to find out what happened! I picked this book up because I saw it was the #1 novel last year according to GoodReads members. I enjoyed it. -- Added by read-when-i-can on 01/24/2017

If you haven't ready any of her other books, I have enjoyed this Author very much! She writes about serious things in such a lighthearted way. She also adds that element of suspense to all her books! -- boilerbir on 01/26/2017
