the splendid and the vile by Erik Larson

This is a classic Larson history novel in that it's a very easy approachable read, and it's a useful and interesting historical perspective in that it takes a look at a different side of Churchill, going back to lots of primary sources - a tip of the hat to Larson for a job deftly done.

Loved it as a kid, thought it was dumb in my 20s, now I’ve come back around on this classic sci-fi emo thriller, not only did it inspire a whole raft of culture in its wake, it’s honestly pretty inspiring and touching.

Both the sci-fi elements and the scientist characters are really fun and involving in this carl sagan book adaptation - but on the other hand the love interest is really annoying and the movie should’ve been 30 minutes shorter.
