  2. I’m reading a mystery novel called ” The Missing File ” by an Israeli author named D.A, Mishani. It is about how Detective Avraham is working to solve a missing person’s case.

  3. Good morning! I finished “Bravo” by Greg Rucka. It was very good. A powerful, plot-driven, straightforward narrative. My one “complaint” is that it is very much a chapter in a larger series. It ends abruptly with the author assuming (in my case, rightly) that the reader will be invested enough to continue the story in the next installment. That’s all well and good, but I prefer the stories I’m reading, even if they’re part of a series, to stand on their own as well. Still, a good read and I’ll continue the series with “Charlie.” (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie… get it?)

    Now, to continue my pattern of alternating between more mass market fare and the classics, I’m reading “Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus” by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. I’m only a few chapters in but it’s already great. Victor Frankenstein is a wonderfully tragic figure. He is a genius who has discovered how to revivify lifeless matter but does not give enough thought to the moral questions raised by such a discovery. In his obsession and his hubris, he plunges headlong into his experiments until he creates a monster. As it turns out, this is a bad idea. But a great story. Good stuff, Shelley!

    • Your series sounds like watching a good TV series on Netflix. Each episode leads to other and it’s hard not to binge watch. I think it’d be a lot of fun to have a series like that. Many students get sucked into the ALEX RIDER series.

      Thanks again for sharing.

      Oh–did you know that Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein as part of a competition? (I think…)
