June Buzz

Weed whackers, mowers, buzz saws, bumble bees. Summer cacophony begins. Despite that, perfect porch reading weekend. The Vacationers by Emma Straub. HuffPost’s current pick. Cannot imagine what there is to discuss. It’s a shallow beach book. Entitled New Yorkers rent a beautiful house on Mallorca. They all have issues. Issues get resolved during the vacation. Gorgeous Mallorcan boy toy enhances the scene. Problems of the 1%. Fast and flimsy at best.

Lots of noise around Phippy’s insider dealings. Is freed POW Bowe the next Homeland Brody? Precedent. Or preceding closing of Gitmo. Game of Thrones. Khaleesi makes a strategic mistake with Jorah. Dragons notwithstanding. The Hound is hurt. No matter how nimble, it’s tough to slay a Mountain. 2 left.
