Because my review was uncommonly lengthy, I've moved the review of The Grizzly Maze here (January 1). Please feel free to jog over and read or comment. I have the feeling that many people who visit my blog would be disinterested in this book because it's such a sad and gruesome true story.
The gist of the review: I read The Grizzly Maze mainly because I wanted to read something by Alaska resident Nick Jans. The writing was a good, thorough assessment of the terrible deaths of two people who were killed by bears, which looked at the questions about the situation from all angles; and the author did a solid job of staying neutral with only a tiny bit of slant showing through. Because I had mixed feelings and felt the author didn't deserve a low rating but I would probably give it one merely because I shouldn't have read it, being a wimp, I chose not to rate it.
Coming up: a brief comment on my first deliberate DNF of the year and the story of the robot that gave a secret away.
Also, I should mention that there are two comments in limbo in my little bloggy world. Every time I go to my dashboard, 2 comments show need for approval (it was 1, until yesterday), but they don't appear at all when I click on the link to the comments. So, Blogger is apparently contemplating them but hasn't digested them, just yet. If you've posted and a message has not shown up, please give it another try. I'm not rejecting any comments.
