Someone who doesn't get out much and has a twisted view of the world.
Time for the Stars by Robert Heinlein.
This was the first recording I have listened to by Ms. Ronconi. I thought her performance was very nice.
The first half was a good synopsis of the Hatfield-McCoy feud.
The first half of the book was a nice synopsis of the events comprising the Hatfield / McCoy feud. FULL STOPAt this point, I should have stopped listening and burned my copy!The second half of Ms. Alther's book is pure rubbish beginning with a listing of other feuds in KY. This listing serves as a starting point for Ms. Alther's thesis that all Scots-Irish Southerners are blood-thirsty, neanderthals who will readily shoot or stab a passerby for any perceived slight!The greatest humor inducing section of Ms. Alther's book was her tale of driving along a highway and upon seeing a billboard for a gun store, she noticed how the barrel of the gun reminded her of a phallus and the trigger guard resembled a testicle.This Southern-WASP Male thinks Ms. Alther needs to get out and about a bit more.Two stars is charitable but as I noted above the first half of the book was OK!
Maybe? If the friend likes hard core military, space Sci-Fi then definitely not; however, if the friend likes cerebral, "what if" Sci-Fi then maybe.
Seemed appropriate but wasn't great.
When Johann was talking to Eunice about being a virgin but neither was but yet it was Johann's first time having sex as a woman. I don't know if the moment moved me or if it was just a very well-written passage.
Anne Hathaway has a nice richness to her voice and was able to provide slight nuances to each character.
Baum created a wonderful universe that is as enjoyable to visit today as it was to visit the first time I followed the characters down the Yellow Brick Road in font of the family TV set many, many years ago.
The cowarldy lion.
The swan having a "valley girl" accent straight from the 1980's made me snort out loud.
A very enjoyable way to spend your time revisiting a classic.
Had the authors chosen to stick to their premise of exploring the history and interactions of 17 important molecules, they might have written a great book
I find it troubling that the authors decided to link every molecule to the rise of slavery or the subjugation of women.
The use of a broomstick as a drug delivery device. I intend to check a copy of Remington's to see if this is a recognized way to administer a hallucinogen.
The history and the chemistry was quite fun.
The authors should write about chemistry as the slavery and subjugation of women genres already have enough members.
I found myself cheering on the characters in this novel, as Mr. Larsson did such a wonderful job of bringing them to life with his story. Rarely, do I find myself feeling for the characters and this is a credit to the great lenghts taken in the character development. All-in-all this was a very well written novel.
