This week's topic, as noted last week, is mysteries.
Next week's topic has yet to be determined.
New comers are welcome. Feel free to ask to be added to the ping list. (Feel free to ask more than once if your name slips through the cracks.)
New threads are posted every Saturday. This thread is informal, but please respect the general rules of F.R.
Anyone who has seen the movie Kinsey, or hasn't, read Flynn's chapter on Kinsey to get the true, un-Hollywooded picture. They made the movie slightly negative so people would think they were getting the true picture. Uh-uh. Read Flynn.
I laughed and cried through this book. Laughed? Well, what about the British soldier who hid in the bathroom when the Bataan camp was liberated? The prisoner who said the American liberators looked like Martians to them? There was more, mixed in with the heartbreaking scenes to give a little relief. Great book.
Also, classed as a psychological thriller, Andrew Klavan's Animal Hour.
Kinsey, Sex, and Fraud by Judith Reisman was better, although even for a former Marine, some parts just could not be read, it was so disgusting, the details of Kinseys experiments, Flynn actually glossed over it
