And now for something completely different. Well, not completely different, still a book, but not the same kind of book I normally read. Writing about Snow Crash reminded me of the first book I read that rolled some non-fiction into its fiction- The Winds of War by Herman Wouk.
I read the Winds of War the summer between 7th and 8th grades. I was bored and we hadn’t been to the library in a week or so. I “threatened” that if we didn’t go soon I was going to read the Winds of War. My step-mom said go right ahead.
