Review:

"Brooklyn Streets Meet Wall Street

My Thoughts....

I found this read 'interesting, riveting, entertaining. thought provoking with plenty of drama' that will keep you turning the pages to see what will be coming next for Josh Robinson in this urban fiction read. It was a good read about this African American whose dream came true for him as he is given a chance to work with financial investments on 'Wall Street' and getting most of all what he wanted in life and that was wearing a suit. However, in doing so Josh will be presented with some 'mistakes, struggles and tough choices' before he is able to get to where he wants to be in life. This author does a good job in giving the reader a good description of how it was to grow up in Brooklyn, NY really poor having to struggle very hard making it, with crime being all around dealing with murder, drugs that seem to bring out a hard world of violence. How was Josh able to be away from all of the violence that was around him and have the life he really wanted? To find out the answers to that question and so much more you will have to pick up this novel to see how well this author brings it all out to the readers. The reader will be given a well developed, portrayed and with believable characters that will keep one entertained in this well written story of 'high finance and even a sweet romance.'

And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson & Peter Parnell
And Tango Makes Three - Justin Richardson,Henry Cole,Peter Parnell

 

 

 

 

 

 

 I chose this for Banned Books Week but I couldn’t wait any longer to read it.

 

Disappointingly my library copy came with a warning slapped on the cover. What’s to be frightened about with ‘same sex families’?

Books banning by active Christians bigots in Singapore
And Tango Makes Three - Justin Richardson,Henry Cole,Peter Parnell

Wherever bullshit religion Christianity spread, more books would be banned or burned.

 

Fuck Jesus for creating such a horrible religion.

 

Yes. I've no respect for any religion that could advocate for banning books. These are children books. WTF? 

 

Christians have often lost their fucking minds and doing horrible things. This time, in Singapore, fuckheads Christians managed to have taken two children books off the shelves.

 

Is that Jesus teaching? Of course it is. No matter how many fake messages of love Christians say, they are lies. The core of Christianity is being nasty and forced other non religious deluded persons to live by their fucking shit Christian religious rules.


Fuck Jesus for doing this to modern society. 

 

Books banning pissed me off.

 

If you are religious deluded of the fucking shit Christian kind. Fuck off.. Leave me alone. I've no interest in your fucking shit religion.

Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales
Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales - Nelson Mandela

Do not read this, listen to it.

 

Besides the veritable buffet of Hollywood A-listers from various ethnic backgrounds providing narrations, there’s beautiful music and songs in the interludes between stories and in the stories themselves. I’ve derived much enjoyment from the imaginative and enthusiastic performances from the narrators, most of whom possess great skills with accents. Even if you don’t recognise a couple of the narrators’ names, odds are you’d recognise their faces.

 

Whoopi Goldberg and Hugh Jackman’s performances were outstanding though most were above average.

 

Urban legends, origin stories, fables, parables, myths, magic, time travel, African versions of well-known fairy tales, clever and devious characters, and emotionally touching stories – what more could you want?

 

Well, the publisher has donated 100% of its takings from the audio to Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and Artists for New South Africa who work with children affected by HIV/AIDS.

 

Here’s a rundown of the folktales:
