Athenian Politics: "Essential Thinkers" by Socrates, Plato, Aristophanes
Essential Thinkers - Socrates (Barnes & Noble Collector's Library) - Plato,Aristophanes,Socrates


(Original Review, 2004-12-02)



There was no other sphere in which to be popular: Socrates places himself right at the heart of Athenian politics, that's the point of being Socrates. He attracts pupils and supporters who will play a decisive role in the unfolding tragedy which results in the downfall of his city.

A very disappointing read.
Ink - Alice Broadway Ink - Alice Broadway

I really don't know what to say about this book, I was really looking forward to it and it totally let me down. I really didn't like any of the characters, and I felt it took a really long time to get to the plot. I was so bored that I found myself skipping ahead, just so I could get to the end. And I didn't know it wasn't a standalone, so it surprised me, when just as it was starting to get interesting, the book was done. And I just have no desire to pick up the next book, to find out what happens next. I still think I might be being nice given the book 2 1/2 stars.

Awesome End to a Fantastic Series.
Kingdom of Ash - Sarah J. Maas

I still can't believe that this was the last book in the series. Some books I loved more than others, but it was one heck of a ride. What a journey for everyone, but especially for Chaol, Dorian, and Celeane/Aelin.

Don't want to go into spoilers, so I just want to say for me I loved the way it ended, how everything wrapped up. I still love Dorian the most, but Chaol, and Aedion, I feel in love with more in this book. 

This book made me laugh and cry, and I wouldn't change a minute of both of those emotions. I will miss my Aelin, Rowan, Chaol, and Dorian. But I am positive we will see them again someday, and I can't wait!!!!!

It was again one Hell of a ride, from the first book Throne of glass ,until the ending book, Kingdom of ash!!!! Thanks so much Sarah j maas, for the good, happy, parts of the entire series, and even for the sad parts, and the times, you even made me angry, or upset, and for all the tears. Because that's what a great writer, is suppose to make you feel.

Favorite books, Heir of fire, and Queen of shadows. Least favorite books, The Assassins blade, and Tower of Dawn.

One of my favorite books in this series!!!!!
Leverage in Death - J.D. Robb

I really thought the reason for the killings was just interesting because I know nothing about the topic.(All I can say about that without spoiling it.)

Ti will say that one trigger Warning would be abuse of Children, but more for the wife. Loved the ending and I was crying but it was a happy reason why I was crying 

I will say Eve and Roarke had a small fight and of course angry sexy. And that the candy thief made an appearance again. There was a really cute Eve and Belle scene,that had me gushing and laughing. 

I really think one of the reasons I love this series so much is because of the friendship as well as the different relationships in the book. And there was a part with Peabody that had me freaking laughing like a loon. 

The book makes you think, what would you do if you had to choose between your family or many other people dying? Could you choose to let your wife, child die? I think it would be a very hard thing to choose. I wouldn't want my spouse and child to die but I wouldn't want to kill innocent people either. Very hard because either way, even if you had no choice, you would be a killer.
