Al Giordino - good friend, resourceful ally, pulls Pitt out of scrapes often.
Kept me interested.
Found the book works like most of the Cussler novels, several plots, themes, crisp dialogue.
Provided an in-depth review of Druid history
The connection to Stone-Henge.
A great introduction to Druid history for a neophyte.
Behe is a scientist I can read that exemplifies science at it's best; inquisitive, unafraid to question convention and exhaustive in his research.
Discussion of irreducible complexity.
All competed for inclusion as 'favorites'. However, his answers to critics were particularly insightful.
No, too much data to absorb. It's not a story. It's a text book.
The process by which the author cites fact, not theory to state his case.
The contrast of Darwinism and ED.
How the ACLU - after suing to admit evolution to school curriculum, sued to block ED.
ID vs Darwinism...theory vs theory!
Factual, compelling and illuminating.
The description of the Federal Reserve system.
His interest is evident. His tone kept otherwise dry material interesting.
I'm disturbed by the successful process politicians and media distorting and hiding the truth.
A necessary expose of the tripe masquerading as conventional American history today.
The description of the Civil War.
The realistic and factual depiction of Joe McCarthy.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Both are fine.
As a veteran from that era, I am acutely aware of the lies and political spin surrounding the war. Few authors would have tackled the topic, understanding the culture of disinformation surrounding it. From what I personally knew, the data presented was far more accurate than the standard fare now available.
Understanding and emotion.
The Tet offensive.
The depth of detail and independent source verification.
Urgency, awareness and definitive.
No. The entire book had me focused and interested.
Not sure how to answer it. For those who liked the original series, the Frank Herbert 'voice' was not there.
Narration kept me involved, despite the disappointment with the subject material.
Yes. I read Dune probably once a year.
Everything. Compelling characters, busy plot, ambitious political twists. Learn something new each time I read or listen.
Intense and spellbinding...destined to be one of the classic science fiction movies of all time.
