  • Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer

    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Story
    (29)

    The Marquis De Sade completed the first draft of Justine Volume 1, a powerful and compelling descent into the realms of sexual perversity and sado masochism, during two weeks in 1787 while a prisoner in the Bastille. Sexual degradation, humiliation and erotic pain are eloquently and openly explored in a novel that was to become the most famous and infamous of all de Sade's work.

    Livingston says: "The philosophies of De Sade shown clearly."
    "got too violent"

    Would you try another book from Marquis De Sade and/or Susan Penhaligon?

    doubt it


    Has Justine turned you off from other books in this genre?

    probably . book was mentioned by shaman in an interview .. but is just too violent and abusive to finish


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disgust at the abuse


    Any additional comments?

    would like to return it

    Graham Hancock has spent decades researching and writing some of the most ambitious and successful nonfiction investigations into ancient civilizations and wisdom. Entangled uses all of Hancock's skills and knowledge to propel a fantasy adventure like nothing else preceding it. This is a time-slip novel, alternating between present-day California, Brazil, and prehistoric Spain, with two teenage female protagonists who must come together to avert an incredibly bloodthirsty takeover of the human race.

    Kyle says: "Great Story"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    it just got too violent and abusive .. can't do that

    Would you be willing to try another one of Khristine Hvam and Graham Hancock (Introduction) ’s performances?

    don't really think so . sorry


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Entangled?

    would return it

    Matt Dodson arrives at Space Academy little prepared for the rigorous program he is about to enter. But that’s the point of the academy: to take young men and steep them in a demanding tradition of honor, courage, and sacrifice until they have earned the right to join the Patrol as guardians of the solar peace. Unfortunately, even the academy’s high power training can’t completely prepare Matt and his friends Tex and Oscar for the harrowing test of both survival and diplomatic skills they will face when a mission goes disastrously wrong.

    DocJim says: "Nothing better than Heinlein performed by a cast!"
