  • America: Imagine a World Without Her

    Story
    (322)

    Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder? Or is America still the hope of the world? New York Times best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise.

    Story
    What did you love best about America?

    The truth, the history - a real eye opener.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The story was told as it is.


    Which character – as performed by Walter Dixon – was your favorite?

    Obama as the Lucifer


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The movie is already made


    Any additional comments?

    Each point was well-researched and poignant. Like a skilled orator, seemingly every claim Dinesh D'Souza makes is more powerful and daunting than the last. By the time you are done listening your worldview should be changed forever.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"

    Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

    Joe says: "worthwhile"
