I haven’t been reading much lately – I just haven’t felt like it. I’m usually a two to three book a week person so my dry spell has been a little odd, but I’ve rolled with it.
Today I snuggled into the couch with my dogs, my Kindle, and Stuart Woods latest book – Beverly Hills Dead. Woods is one of my top five "mental floss" writers. I was finished it a couple of hours later and am pleased that my reading drought is over.
In Beverly Hills Dead Woods winds the clock back to the 1940’s and post-World War II Hollywood. The book works through the story of the early days of Woods’ characters Rick Barron and Vance Calder. The story and intrigue is good, but I especially liked the Hollywood anti-communist theme that the book was built around as it nicely complimented Good Night, and Good Luck.
While there is nothing special here if you aren’t a Stuart Woods fan, if you are looking for mental floss, give Woods a shot.
