For once, Joanne Walker's not out to save the world. She's come to terms with the host of shamanic powers she's been given, her job as a police detective has been relatively calm, and sheï¿¿ï¿¿s got a love life for the first time in memory. Not bad for a woman who started out the year mostly dead. But it's Halloween, and the undead have just crashed Joanne's party.

Addie Baum is "The Boston Girl", born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie's intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine - a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture and new opportunities for women.

I lived in Boston for 2 years, and this book helps me to understand the city in a different way. The history of someone that grew up there, and how the world is changing, especially for women.
I enjoy the performance, but I would have like a stronger Bostonian accent.

For Seattle detective Joanne Walker, spring is about new beginnings. She’s mastered her shamanic abilities (mostly), survived a cannibalistic serial killer (barely) and now she’s facing the biggest challenge of her career—attending a dance concert with her sexy boss, Captain Michael Morrison. But when the performance—billed as transformative—actually changes her into a coyote, she and Morrison have bigger things to deal with.

I love this series and this book is as good as the predecessors. The evolution of the characters and their ideas shows the complex and Constance change in our live in details that sometimes we don't see. The story is slower that the previous ones but the book it's a always full of magic and fights.

In The Glass Cage, bestselling author Nicholas Carr digs behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, as he explores the hidden costs of granting software dominion over our work and our leisure. Even as they bring ease to our lives, these programs are stealing something essential from us.

Tits book is a interpretation of automatization in our live, it future and pass. It look the evolution of humane machines and Etics to find the place of balance. A complex review of actual and fibrosis machines try to explains it place in our live and our place in a future fulfil with automatic machines.

Érase una vez un pueblo donde las noches eras largas y la muerte contaba su propia historia...En el pueblo vivía una niña que quería leer, un hombre que tocaba el acordeón y un joven judío que escribía cuentos hermosos para escapar del horror de la guerra. Al cabo de un tiempo, la niña se convirtió en una ladrona que robaba libros y regalaba palabras. Con estas palabras se escribió una historia hermosa y cruel que ahora ya es una novela inovidable.

Una historia un tanto romántica con una narradora poco usual.
La historia presenta personajes muy bien logrados y consistentes en una época muy conocida y estudiada.
La Alemania Nazi desde el punto de vista de niños alemanes qué no comprenden completamente las razones de lo qué sucede.
Un libro para leer, entretenerse y estudiarlo para comprender lo qué impulsa al corazón humano.
