  • "Perfection"

    Overall

    I've bought probably more than a hundred audiobooks but not many of them is as good as Revolution. Both of the narrators are awsome. I don't want to make this too long but all I wanted to say is that this book touched my life and I'm sure it can touch yours too.

    Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. There’s comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal’s antique pages - until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine’s words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present.

    Overall

    It wasn't anyting at all what I expected but it was a whole lot better. 13 reasons why tells about a teen and why she wants to kill herself, right? I think it was a lot deeper than that. All the mixed feelings how Hannah feel are so complicated that it's hard to understnad. But Jay Asher convey it pretty well. This book is not like happily ever after book, but yet you can still enjoy it.

    If you're looking for a fast-paced and exciting story, this is it. Though The Chosen One was a work of fiction, it was inspired by a true story. The narrator did a fantastic job on making the characters come alive. There are times when I felt Kyra's pain and guilt so strongly, I forgot I was merely a listener. It dosen't matter whether you're a teen or not, you'll love it.

    Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father's three wives and her 20 brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much - if you don't count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her.

    Story

    The reviewer who summed it up as perfection pretty much scoops my review of this story, but for my unabridged opinion, please continue.. this is one of those rare books that not only is an engaging, entertaining story deftly written (with an intelligent, wry sprinkling of humor) by Ms. Donnelly, but makes an engrossing listen as an audiobook. The narrator(s) do a great job, and bring so much life and "animation" to the characters..without being over the top. Both of them pretty much nail the personalities and essence of Andi and Alex spot on, and even the more "minor" characters are engaging. This is a wonderful story that takes you so much farther and in such a different direction than it might sound like in the beginning, even though the beginning is enough to pique one's interest. (Sampling the excerpt made me want to continue on with the story..) It is a masterful blending together of different elements such as music, history, family relationships, travel, first love, overcoming grief, and a young woman's finding love and her "path" in life. This woven tapestry of a story is deftly written by the author, and if, as a human, you are touched by any of the aforementioned elements, you don't want to miss this story. Enjoy!

    Story

    This is an amazing story...a beautifully-written tale of one young woman's jouney through loss and grief and out the other side to the path of her own life. I loved the main character John "Lennie" Lennon. Her friends and quirky family are awesome characters. The narration by Julia Whelan perfectly captures the heart, emotions, and attitude of Lennie and all the other characters. A story that is heart-breaking, heart-warming, with touches of poignant humor all at the same time...completely moving. Not to be missed!

    Story

    A great story from the uniquely talented Lauren Oliver. I find her style very poignant with a refreshing and novel approach to the themes explored. Sarah Drew's talented narration totally draws us in to Lena's mind and emotions as she faces a new reality and discovers a world beyond the carefully constructed and controlled "society" she has been brought up in. Very interesting dystopian premise that love is a "disease" that must be carefully prevented and controlled at all costs. A touching love story develops between the characters, and I am "holding my breath" for the next installment...please bring it on, Ms. Oliver!

  • "Great reading for educators, parent..."

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    This is the true story of a young teacher, Erin Gruwell, and diary entries from her "unteachable" students in Wilson High School in Long Beach, California. When she found a cartoon of a big lipped boy being passed around her classroom, in her rage she told her class that this stereotyping is how the Holocaust got started. When she realized that none of her students had heard of the Holocaust, she assigned the kids The Diary Of Ann Frank, and thus began her program of writing for tolerance and change, rather than violence and ignorance.

    This book includes the anonymous entries, for the safety of her students, of the diary writings of her students telling of their personal issues and problems around violence, racism, gang "ethics", drugs, alcoholism, spouse abuse, child sexual abuse, and one parent families, etc. Various activities, visits to famous places, corporate help, and determined hard work changed these kids from failures and hoodlums, into productive kids pursuing college educations and "legal" careers.

    Great read for educators, parents, and children who may see the connection of their problem lives to these children. The focus is for hard work, determination, courage, hope, and understanding of the humanity of all kinds of people through sharing ideas in writing rather than violence. Excellent book---good for thought for everyone!!

    As an idealistic 23-year-old English teacher at Wilson High School in Long Beach, California, Erin Gruwell confronted a room of "unteachable, at-risk" students. One day she intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature, and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust, only to be met by uncomprehending looks. So she and her students undertook a life-changing, eye-opening, spirit-raising odyssey against intolerance and misunderstanding.

    Rooted in an actual case of wife-selling in early nineteenth-century England, the story builds into an awesome Sophoclean drama of guilt and revenge, in which the strong, willful Henchard rises to a position of wealth and power, only to achieve a most bitter downfall. Proud, obsessed, ultimately committed to his own destruction, Henchard is, as Albert Guerard has said, "Hardy's Lord Jim...his only tragic hero and one of the greatest tragic heroes in all fiction."

    Shyima Hall was born in Egypt on September 29, 1989, the seventh child of desperately poor parents. When she was eight, her parents sold her into slavery. Shyima then moved two hours away to Egypt's capitol city of Cairo to live with a wealthy family and serve them eighteen hours a day, seven days a week. When she was ten, her captors moved to Orange County, California, and smuggled Shyima with them. Two years later, an anonymous call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima's servitude - but her journey to true freedom was far from over.

Pastor David dares to address the questions that many people would rather sweep under the rug, not expected especially from a Preacher's pulpit, or considered too sensitive to be discussed in the open. He does so by sharing what God has to say in His Word.
