When The Stranger Came by John Meany

Just okay

This felt more like a love story between a boy and his dog than a suspense thriller. It was really short for a suspense story too. There are no paragraph indents which is a personal turn off for me. This was written blog style. I also didn't

I've known Eryk Pruitt on and off for several years. He is a polite, soft-spoken, intelligent gentleman. It's interesting to see this kind of book come from within that wrapping. Note: even though I know Eryk, this was NOT a free-for-review book. I p ...more

"FINALLY FINISHED! Not since completing John Milbank's Theology and Social Theory have I felt such a sense of accomplishment–but for entirely different reasons. (Here, the battle was with sheer boredom, and boredom was a tenacious challenger.)"

This is a well-crafted and researched book. It's full color and each superhero is well represented. The only thing that mad me sad was that the book sparked my interest in many of these comic book heroes but there weren't full issues in the book - th ...more

The pictures are crisp and have great detail. My eyes are bad so I would've liked to be able to zoom in on a lot of these to see more detail. (I was reading on a Kindle Fire 8.9" HDX). I liked that the pictures are numbered and linked to the text but ...more

Kingdom From Ashes by Megan Linski

I'd probably say this was 35% fantasy and 65% romance, give or take a little. I was a little bored with the romance aspect. i don't read many romance novels. However, the book was well written and a relaxing and quick book to read. I also think the w ...more

Lloyd Alexander
“Life's a forge! Yes, and hammer and anvil, too! You'll be roasted, smelted, and pounded, and you'll scarce know what's happening to you. But stand boldly to it! Metal's worthless till it's shaped and tempered! More labor than luck. Face the pounding, don't fear the proving; and you'll stand well against any hammer and anvil.”
Lloyd Alexander, Taran Wanderer

Robert Frost
“The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost

Lewis Carroll
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
"I don't much care where –"
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Martin Buber
“When I confront a human being as my Thou and speak the basic word I-Thou to him, then he is no thing among things nor does he consist of things. He is no longer He or She, a dot in the world grid of space and time, nor a condition to be experienced and described, a loose bundle of named qualities. Neighborless and seamless, he is Thou and fills the firmament. Not as if there were nothing but he; but everything else lives in his light.”
Martin Buber

Robert Frost
“Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
Robert Frost
