I got distracted by a book about a WWII Army Airman and his survival and put my reading of His Excellency on pause.
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is a most remarkable story brought to life by an incredible writer. I can feel as if I am in the life raft and the POW camps with these men.
The writing is so good that I simply experience the story and don't even think about the writing until reflecting on it later. It's an extremely powerful experience and am looking forward to the second half.
