Jack (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers) by Julia London
Jack (7 Brides For 7 Soldiers) (Volume 5) - Julia London

 

Julia London created a powerful tale of impactive characters. Jack is realistic, informative and inspirational entertainment. A smile goes a mile. Those words kept popping into my head throughout Jack and Whitney's intense relationship. Bruised by life and wounded by a traumatic event, Jack closes himself off from the rest of the world. It takes an optimistic baker and a persistent attraction to open his eyes and reawaken his heart. Jack takes on PTSD with a remarkable sensitivity that is enlightening, inspiring and full of hope. Empathy can move mountains, change lives and inspire faith.

How to Build a Dinosaur by Jack Horner & James Gorman
How to Build a Dinosaur: The New Science of Reverse Evolution - Jack Horner,James Gorman

TITLE:  How to Build a Dinosaur:  Extinction Doesn't Have to Be Forever

 

AUTHOR:  Jack Horner & James Gorman

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2009

 

FORMAT:  ebook

 

ISBN-13:  978-1-101-02871-1

 

____________________________________

 

This is a horribly written book. There is a ridiculous amount of completely irrelevant filler, a few interesting dinosaur bits and pieces that have nothing to do with the book title (and presumably subject) and then a magazine article length section on "how to build a dinosaur" by fiddling with chicken genomes, along with how the general public is going to freak out about it. The author spends the entire first chapter babbling about a town in the middle of nowhere, how to get there, local gossip and a bit of local history i.e. irrelevant filler. Then there is a section on finding evidence of dinosaur blood cells and collagen, with some pointless pot-shots at creationists (they might be crazy but do you really have to include it in the book, especially since it doesn't accomplish anything?), and too much details about the scientists personal life. The sections dealing with the techniques used was interesting, but there was too little substance and far too much filler. The writing is also simplistic but overly verbose, and got boring after a while.

 

NOTE: The book was published in 2009, so some of the scientific data discussed may well be out of date by now, especially anything related to genetic alterations.

Details:

Marrying traditional wisdom and modern scientific and medical research, a vegan macrobiotic approach recognizes the profound effects food, environment, activities, and attitude can have on your physical and emotional health.

Based on the authors’ decades-long experience as teachers, dietary counselors, and chefs, on scientific and medical studies documenting the health benefits of a vegan macrobiotic way of eating, and on other cutting-edge research on health, vitality, and fitness, this book features 150-plus easy-to-follow recipes, including:

Review:

In addition to offering over 150 delicious recipes, The One Peaceful World Cookbook explains macrobiotics in a clear and simple way that even made sense to me! There is also a comprehensive list of ingredients at the beginning. Although I've been following a vegan diet for 2 years, some of these were unfamiliar to me, so it was really helpful to find out what exactly kombu was, for example.

 

A lot of the recipes use some of the same ingredients, so it's good to know that your bottle/packet of x/y/z that you have sourced won't be used once and then go out of date lingering in the back of the cupboard/fridge.

Many of the recipes I think will become staples in my house as they are quick and cheap to make and based on grains with a few extras.

The recipes are explained clearly and concisely and the pictures are realistic.

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR Review
The Girl Next Door - Jack Ketchum

Jesus H., this book is dark. Dark dark dark dark.

 

Jack Ketchum pulls no punches. His writing style is not fanciful; he gets in and gets out, giving the reader exactly what he or she needs — nothing more, or less. Perhaps that’s what makes this novel so unsettling (aside from the fact that it is based on a real life crime case): it is written so matter-of-factly.

 

I don’t really care to go into this book’s plot. Other reviews do a good job of that. I will say this novel evokes a feeling of uncontrollable horror in a way unlike I’ve read too often before. I could not put this thing down, though I wanted to. Oh, I wanted to.

 

The reviews declaring this one of the most horrifying books written are not hyperbole. Believe them. Believe me. This is a ride through hell. Easily the most horrific thing I’ve read this month.

 

Read for ‘American Horror Story’ in Halloween Bingo.
