Just yesterdayI started and finished another book called “The Wave” given to me by a friend in Melbourne. Here in Darwin, waiting for my flight to Denpasar there is not much more to do 😉

The Wave

The Wave

The setting of “The Wave” is Gordon High School, 1969, California. The plot revolves around history teacher, Mr. Ben Ross, who cannot answer the question of why the Germans allowed Hitler and the genocidal Nazi Party to rise to power, acting in a manner inconsistent with their own pre-existing moral values. The only way he can see to answer the question is to start an experiment that shows the students what it may have been like in living in Nazi Germany. It has been made into a movie as well with some sequels but this is a different story.

Interesting? Well, not something very mind blowing there but a good story to pass a day with and make you wonder…

I just thought I’d let you know. For now, my regards.
