In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident—unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the tent without proper clothing or shoes, a strange final photograph taken by one of the hikers, and elevated levels of radiation found on some of their clothes—have led to decades of speculation over what really happened.

That looks like a great book.  One of my favorite books of all time is "Into Thin Air", so it sounds like I might like Dead Mountain.

I am reading "The Information" by Martin Amis.
Is a book selected in one ot the reading clubs I belong.

https://en.wikipedia...e_Information_(novel)

Usually the books selected are good and full of question to debate.
 :P

Note : Ejem, the reading club all books in spanish, but lately if the book is written in english I try in english.

The Expanse Series by James S. A. Corey.  Currently on Cibola Burn.

Pretty good sci-fi.  Got involved after seeing the second season and then the first season on SyFy.  Very good grasp of physics, even in the inventions and liberties taken.

But got interrupted by the new Mitch Rapp book, Enemy of the State.

Kyle Mills seemed to reach his stride in the last book, so I've been looking forward to this more than the American Assassin movie.  That could be good- but I've already seen changes, so bracing myself for it not to be.

I have finished Fear and Trembling

Is more easy to read than The Information by Martin Amis.

Is about mobbing in the work.

The Genius by Theodore Dreiser.  Not an adrenalin read but insight into the maturation of an artist.

Sins of Empire by Brian McClellan.  Just as good as the first series, IMO.
