“Liar’s Girl”, By ‘Catherine Ryan Howard’, Brilliantly Clever & Creative Tale.

by Anura Guruge


Wow. What a story. Brilliant. As far as I know it is all fiction. Not sure how & where she got the idea. But, it is very, very clever & creative.

A very pleasant  surprise. It was available for free from Amazon Audible & I got it on a whim because I wanted something different. Lighter than some of my prior Audible books. This sure met the bill.

I can fully appreciate how it would win a mystery/crime award.

Very talented young lady. Writes beautifully. She has already gone far, but she will go further. Cracks me up that her bio says she is “currently studying English at Trinity College Dublin“. She should be TEACHING the course. Nothing she has to learn. Highly recommended.

Beyond brilliant. Beyond enchantment. This was 48-hours of sheer joy!

Loved it. My 2nd AUDIBLE — as part of my initial FREE, 2-month membership.

Yes, I am a U.S. Grant BUFF, so much so that I named one of my Goldens after him. And yes, I have made a pilgrimage to his tomb in New York.

The writing was divine. I just lapped it up. The narration was exquisite. I can’t even imagine how somebody can do it so superbly.

You have to listen to it.

I am NOT sure whether I would have enjoyed this book as much IF I read it! That, coming from I, is quite an admission.

I listened to it during my 5-mile (10,000 step) morning walk. That walk, the first part delayed in that I walk 2-dogs, takes me close to 2-hours. So, I have spent the last MONTH listening to this book. It was well worth it. SUPERB.

Just loved it. This book has me hooked on Audible! Smile.

Well, I think you can see that I am very favorably impressed with this book & Amazon’s Audible. SMILE.

What Am I Thinking: HOW & WHY Are We, The ‘Sapiens’, Standing Singularly Alone?

by Anura Guruge



I drove for 9.5 hours, to Acadia & back, Wednesday/Thursday of this week. That gave me a LOT of time to THINK. And this was one of the THINKS that popped into my stack & kept me THINKING.

Evolution, at least within our niche in the world (meaning the ‘Ape’ family (& i.e., Hominoidea)) seems to have STOPPED.

Chimps & gorillas don’t seem to be getting any smarter? Shouldn’t they. That is how we came to be us. We evolved. While I don’t expect chimps to be us, why haven’t they got CLOSER.

Also, within the ‘Homo Erectus‘ family. There were a LOT of splits & we & the Neanderthals lived side-by-side for quite a long time.

NO MORE. We are alone.

How come we haven’t seen a SPLIT?

Worth THINKING about. Well worth THINKING about.

I came home & serendipitously found this book. I have been listening to it, as an Amazon Audible (for FREE), yesterday & today — during my 100-minute walks.

Bingo. The book addresses my concern right up front.

So, it would appear that this was a GOOD THINK.

I am not done yet. The book hasn’t answered all my questions. But, it has given me more to TH
