    Tamora Pierce begins a new Tortall trilogy by introducing Beka Cooper, an amazing young woman who lived 200 years before Pierce's popular Alanna character. For the first time, Pierce employs first-person narration in a novel, bringing readers even closer to a character they will love for her unusual talents and tough personality.

    "Rich and Dramatic"
    Overall

    An excellent book brought delightfully to life by the narrator. The setting is detailed and complex, characters are never simple, and the mysteries are not straightforward. As Beka seeks to find her way and prove herself, we are swept along into a world of crime and friendship and complicated loyalties.

    The narrator's use of accents and voices is spot on - we recognize the characters that populate the world at once.

  • 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    Case says: "Hotly debated new theories, but NOT revisionism"
    "Great content, flat narration."

    The information was great, but I wish the narrator had been convinced of that. A strangely flat reading. Kinda 1950s school documentary feel.
