    Story
    (462)

    In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident.

    Overall

    I read this in print and was captivated. I did not know too much about Mr. Obama but thought it looked interesting. It brings to light how human he is and how difficult it is to negotiate the world being bi-racial. The most interesting portion is the last third. It is the story of his journey to learn of his family in Africa. It is told almost completely in story format from his family's perspective. The writing is wonderful too. I was sad to finish it.

  • Breaking the Da Vinci Code

    Story
    (5)

    Many who have read the New York Times best seller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes, expressed or implied, in Dan Brown's book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist's claims using central ancient texts.

    Harry says: "Not bad"
    "Interesting but not simple."
    Overall

    After finishing the Da Vinci Code, I was filled with curiosity about the many issues raised regarding the Catholic church, Jesus, etc. This is obviously in defense of what is written in the bible not a critical look at other theories surrounding the existing or, supposed missing gospels. It is interesting but having poor working knowledge of the Bible, I had to listen very closely.
