The Farm by Tom Rob Smith – review
These days we all know Scandinavia well. We know its clean-edged cities and green countryside, we lust after the slickness of its interiors and attempt to emulate the thrown-together knitted elegance of its inhabitants. Crime readers are on such friendly terms that they conflate books from Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland under the banner of "Scandi". Because sensible as Scandinavians may seem, with their Volvos, Marimekko patterns, meatballs and crispbreads, in fiction they are prone to murder. Bestsellers by Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbø, Karin Fossum and others, combined with the success of television seriesThe KillingandThe Bridge , have confirmed an appetite for all things Scandinavian.

How to Write a Review
Whenever you're asked to decide whether something is good or bad--and then explain why on paper--you're being asked to write a *review* or *evaluation*. This is a valuable style of writing to learn, because even if you don't wind up writing book reviews for a living, you will still need to make big decisions as an adult about which car or house to buy, or which college to attend. The kind of thinking you need to use in writing reviews is the kind of thinking you need to make intelligent choices in life. Before you begin Step One: Decide What To Look At The first thing you need to do before you start your review is decide what aspects of the item you are going to evaluate.
‘Gone Girl,’ by Gillian Flynn
Gillian Flynn’s ice-pick-sharp “Gone Girl” begins far too innocently by explaining how Nick and Amy Dunne celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. Amy got up and started making crepes. Nick came into the kitchen, appreciating his wife’s effort but wondering why Amy was humming the theme song from “M*A*S*H. ” You know, that “suicide is painless” thing. “Well, hello, handsome,” Amy says to her husband. “Bile and dread inched up my throat,” Nick recalls, although Ms. Flynn’s spectacularly sneaky novel does not explain that, not right away. Anyway, Nick leaves the house after breakfast.

The life and death-defying feats of Alex Honnold, a visionary climber of the sort that comes along only once in a generation.

Jones IIIon August 22, 2016 … was one of the battle cries of the ‘60’s, when I first read this work, probably as a school assignment. Back then, a certain segment of youth was enamored with the idea that the purity of their idealism would correct many, if not all the world’s ills, caused primarily by corrupt adults. It was one more version of “building the new Soviet man. ” At times, I shared those sentiments.
