The book Red Moon is receiving lots of acclaim as a "deeply layered" literary thriller. For me, it was a frustrating, vague read that ended flat, without an identifiable denouement.
While I give the little National Geographic Pocket Guide: Birds of North America four stars, be warned that this is not a field guide. It does not even cover all common birds in any region. For instance, it covers four woodpecker species but completely leaves out the Hairy Woodpecker, which is a common enough species anywhere.
