Books

Ready Player One
by Ernest Cline
★★★★ Despite having watched the movie, I really enjoyed reading this book, from the beginning to the end. I can only imagine how much more fun it would be for someone who grew up playing arcade video games, and who gets all of the cultural references better than I did. Recommended for those who want to get their minds off the pandemic and political turmoil.
Space Between
by Nico Tortorella
★★★ Well intentioned, but I took a long time to warm up to the author. I'm on the lookout for a better book to recommend on the topic of beng gender non-binary and fluid. This is not it.
Between the World and Me
by Ta-Nehisi Coates
★★★★ Moving and thoughtprovoking. Definitely read it.

Movies

The White Tiger (2021) ★★★★ A great watch despite having read the book before. Strong story line and convinving performances. Recommended!
The Witches (1990) ★★★★ Fun childrens movie that adults can enjoy
The Biggest Little Farm (2018) ★★★★ Heart warming documentary on farming in sync with nature
Contagion (2011) ★★★ Well executed. We now know more about pandemics than this movie contains.
Rebel Without a Cause (1955) ★★ Bad acting. Bad direction.
