Year 16, Book 23

23. Freedom by Sebastian Junger

I honestly have no idea what this book was supposed to be about. It was sort of just all over the place. Part of it is Sebastian Junger talking about his experiences walking the railroad lines along the east coast. I actually found that part of interesting and wish the whole book was about doing that and the people he met along the way. That is only a small piece of the book though. The rest of the book is just him writing about seemingly random stuff. I’m guessing in some way everything is supposed to be related to the idea of freedom, but he doesn’t really ever connect anything. The kernel of the idea for this book was interesting the execution not as much. I give it a 4 out of 10.
