A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: Humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe - a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

Good idea with a very rough landing. I enjoyed it, but it felt as if the author lost track of their ideas halfway through.

Carl Sagan, writer and scientist, returns from the frontier to tell us about how the world works. In his delightfully down-to-earth style, he explores and explains a mind-boggling future of intelligent robots, extraterrestrial life and its consequences, and other provocative, fascinating quandaries of the future that we want to see today.

Carl Sagan was a true prophet of his time. Believing in the inherent good of man, questioning life with the unwavering confidence of science and dreaming, no, expecting a progressive future. I just wish he could share the many wonders he predicted with us today.

Carl Sagan is a rapper and a gemius. In this book, he accurately summarizes the most prevalent concerns and desires affecting humanity. While inspiring a deep desire for future knowledge and space exploration, he emphasizes respect and care for the human race as a whole, and the exercise of responsible lifestyle, progression and interraction on our pale, blue dot: Planet Earth.

Please read this book, it is well worth the time and money. ❤

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York.

Written by a strong young woman, this story will change your perspective on human identity. Malala is the most empathetic, selfless and influential woman I have had the honor of witnessing.

Thank you for this fantastic read.
