Daily Thoughts 11/27/2014

Happy Thanksgiving.

I finished reading Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand.  Louis Zamperini goes through a bout of alcoholism after returning from the war.  Then he finds redemption and eventual forgiveness for his captivity.  The last part is worth reading to understand the meaning of forgiveness.

I also checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I read the graphic novel Barbarian Lord by Matt Smith.  It is black and white with grey tones and washes to the panels.  It looks like a cross between an Icelandic saga and a 1980s barbarian comic book.  The saga part includes poetry contests, talking ravens, spirits of nature and magic, and fights over lands and livestock.  The barbarian part is the classic sword battles, fights with sea serpents, trolls, and men driven by treachery and berserk rage.  It is thoroughly escapist.
