This is always one of those books that people recommend because of its greatness, but I've always put it off. I'm glad I finally read it. What an incredible story. It's such a challenging book, yet it fills your heart with hope and faith. There are f ...more

Because I have an interracial family and my kids are half black, a couple of years ago I developed a curiosity for literature that I could hand to my kids and tell them about great men and women (who happened to be black) that they could look up to. ...more

This is my first book I've read from N.T. Wright, and I definitely want to read more. I don't have a lot to say about this book. Wright is a brilliant man and a superb writer. This book is a very good book, but my biggest gripe is just that it doesn' ...more

The Abominable by Dan Simmons

I had high hopes for this, because Dan Simmons is simply one of the best living authors out there. Unfortunately, this book suffered many problems that made it seem phoned in.

First, apparently the prologue explains that the main protagonist of this s

Prophet, Arise by John Eckhardt
Rate this book
Clear rating
Very good book for those who have a prophetic bent. It's written less like a traditional book, and is more of a collection of brief thoughts. Because of that, it has a lot of nuggets and is great as a resource to come back to, but is a bit tedious to ...more

If you ever need a case study about how bad humor ruins good stories, look no further than The Martian. And it is a good story. Let's start with that. At its best, the story reminds me of the heights of the Apollo 13 story. An astronaut encounters ca ...more

Maya Angelou
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Patrick Süskind
“This scent had a freshness, but not the freshness of limes or pomegranates, not the freshness of myrrh or cinnamon bark or curly mint or birch or camphor or pine needles, not that of a May rain or a frosty wind or of well water... and at the same time it had warmth, but not as bergamot, cypress, or musk has, or jasmine or daffodils, not as rosewood has or iris... This scent was a blend of both, of evanescence and substance, not a blend, but a unity, although slight and frail as well, and yet solid and sustaining, like a piece of thin, shimmering silk... and yet again not like silk, but like pastry soaked in honey-sweet milk - and try as he would he couldn't fit those two together: milk and silk! This scent was inconceivable, indescribable, could not be categorized in any way - it really ought not to exist at all. And yet there it was as plain and splendid as day.”
Patrick Süskind, Perfume The Story of a Murderer

Nick Jones Hey! Thought I'd let you know I picked up a copy of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: The Dream Hunters.

I'm putting sole blame on you if I don't like it :-P


So, what did you think of the Gunplay preview?

message 2: by Nick

Nick Jones LOL! Have you seen There Will Be Blood? You're seriously going to like this spoof if you did. It's called "There will be Bud" F-ing hilarious... check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9ClsO...

Nick Jones Here for the booze eh? :-) I said that at my brother's wedding... I didn't quite get the reaction I was hoping for. I laughed nonetheless. Sometimes you just have to dance to your own tune. Thanks for adding me… you just about have me convinced to pick-up The Sandman. That is, if I ever get through Watchmen. At my current pace, I should be done with it sometime this summer :-P
