Book Reviews

Here you will find my reviews on books I have read, and what I think about them.

February 28, 2015- Book Review: Immoral by Brian Freeman

A difficult relationship between a deviously malicious teenage daughter and her mother center this book, and the relationships she harbors and spirits she destroys jerk your mind into having real opinions about these people. The book will take you across the country and join everyone into a web of crazy truths that will leave you saying “No F****ng Way” page after page……

February 27, 2015- Book Review: The Giver by Lois Lowry

This is, by far, one of the best and thought-provoking books in the young-adult and fiction genre. There are a plethora of books published about perfect worlds and societies, where change is unacceptable and cookie-cutter human beings have become part of forced living communities, as a result of the leadership’s fear of human will and their determination to right the wrong courses society had taken in the past.

The book is centered around Jonas, a young boy who …..

January 26, 2014– World History by Phillip Parker

Video review on Philip Parker’s World History book, published in 2010 by Sterling Publishing. Highly recommended visual guide that starts from the prehistoric era and brings us into the modern era; complete with tables, timelines and pictures. A great companion piece to any history course.

November 14, 2014- Book Review: The Greek Myths by Robin Waterfield

“If you are looking for knowledge about Greek Myths, as they would have been told in their original era, with complete tellings of the Gods starting with the Titans, all the way through to the heroes of Greece, this is the book for you.”

October 16, 2014- Book Review: A Dark History: Tutors

My final thought: this book needs an overhaul. I do not recommend it. Purchase a more accurate reference book that flows well. This is a sad addition to the “A Dark History” collection and a sad day for the Tutors.

October 13, 2014- Book Review: The Spanish Queen by Carolly Erickson

Carolly’s book is subtitled “A Novel of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon” and of the many books related to the tutor dynasty, is the first I have encountered that encompasses the story between Henry and Catherine pre-Anne Boleyn.

September 20, 2014- Book Review: A Writer’s Resource 2nd Edition

Overall I recommend this book to any writer who is managing the production of their books, articles, and stories on their own without the help of an editor. This book is an invaluable resource for writers with limited resources and want to get their content right; but it also makes a great companion for any author who wants to hone their technical skills to match their creative prowess.

September 16, 2014– Book Review: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

This books makes a perfect example about the real-life sacrifices and choices service members often have to make in order to serve. The story also tears at the heart strings of anyone who has ever been in a relationship where circumstance often plays a large role in its outcome. Overall this book opens a door to readers about what it’s like to love so terribly strong, and how military life plays a part in who someone is at their core and how it helps them succeed; but all in return for an immense amount of sacrifice and experience.
