Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

A History of the World in 100 Objects

A History of the World in 100 Objects - Neil MacGregor

Wow, this book took awhile for me to get through. So much interesting information that I had to read only a few sections per sitting if I had any hope of retaining what I read.

 

I found the objects chosen to be very interesting, the photography beautifully executed and the writing to be very concise and accessible. I caught myself thinking "you can't know that! you're just guessing!" more than a few times as the author tried to speculate with what felt like a lot of imagination, about some of the objects.

 

Overall, though, this is a great book and one that I will refer back to again and again over time.
