Reviewed 4 Stars: Lost at Sea, The Jon Ronson Mysteries

Lost At Sea: The Jon Ronson MysteriesLost At Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries by Jon Ronson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Highly recommended. Ronson returns to the form of “Them,” and “The Men Who Stare At Goats,” in this collection of humorous journalistic essays. His last book, “The Psychopath Test,” was a little one-note and more judgmental, while this collection travels broadly and shows Ronson in a variety of moods. Ronson’s best book remains “Them,” but I enjoyed every essay in “Lost at Sea.” An easy-to-read book with bite-sized essays perfect for the treadmill/exercycle.
