    To make up or break up? Whether you’re just getting serious or have a long-term commitment, no other question causes so much heartache and self-doubt. Many other books tell you how to fix your relationship. This groundbreaking bestseller is the first one to help you choose whether you should try—or you need to go.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book because it did not try and tell me what to do. It just gave me things to think about, and put some things in perspective. It is a good way to get out of the vicious cycle of thinking too much, because it sets a path for you to find your own answers. Just because you're ambivalent doesn't necessarily mean that things are bad OR good. It just means you need some clarity, and I think the author's questions are a good starting point for that clarity.

  • River God: A Novel of Ancient Egypt

    Story
    (312)

    Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed. Now the Valley of Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown. On the eve of the festival of Osiris, the loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather in Thebes to pay tribute to their leader.

    Exploding with all the passion and rage of a bygone time, River God is a masterpiece of historical writing.

    Story

    I nearly quit on this book after the first couple of hours because I was not looking for something so graphic, but if you get past that, the story gets much better. As a whole, the story didn't do much for me personally, but I would still suggest giving it a chance.

  • The Modern Scholar: The Anglo-Saxon World

    Had the Angles and Saxons not purposefully migrated to the isles of the Britons and brought with them their already-well-developed use of language, Angelina Jolie may never have appeared in the movie Beowulf. Professor Michael D.C. Drout is at his best when lecturing on the fascinating history, language, and societal adaptations of the Anglo-Saxons.

    Matthew says: "Amazingly good"
    "Excellent Lecture"
    Overall

    I have to admit, I bought this lecture on an Audible sale and was only mildly interested in the topic. But Prof. Drout is so obviously fascinated by this subject that he made me fascinated as well. He talks in "normal" language, and has just the right amount of humorous rambling every once in a while that it felt like he was just chatting with me in my living room. I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture and highly recommend it whether you are interested in this subject or not!
