I read a really bizarre book...I'm thinking James Patterson?...years ago which had a hermaphrodite in it...TWIN hermaphrodites, maybe?... and let's just say they didn't have to worry about getting their needs met conveniently having all the equipment necessary. I'm hardly a prude (I don't think!) but I wasn't keen on another book like this and was scared off initially by the subject matter after that experience. Thank God for goodreads that I was able to take my friend Ken's recommendation as well as others on the site and actually read it. I might have missed out on a terrific book, otherwise. It's no longer a taboo subject with me; just the opposite, I feel very comfortable with the subject. The book has helped me see this is a condition of real human beings due to specific genetic factors, not some freak sideshow exhibition. The book is still settling in my bones. It's never a good thing to try to comment on it while the particulate matter is swarming around me. I'll have to wait until it settles into some finite object that I can look at and evaluate. Meanwhile, I know it was a very good book, that I enjoyed it and it was well worth the read, that the author is incredibly insightful and intelligent, that he has done his homework and has presented the subject character and the family sympathetically and, at times, humorously. I plan to go on Oprah's website as well and read the Q&A for the author. Let me know what you think! ******** OK, a couple weeks later, I realize there's nothing left to be said. I've already said I became comfortable with a subject that, before reading this book, I would have avoided at all cost and that Middlesex changed my thinking. What higher kudos could follow?
iFreakinqqLoveeDizzBOOK! This book is great if your into trying a relationship out. This book is about a girl(Brittany) from the "North" side of Chigago, that everyone sees her as "Perfect" becuase of her looks & her grades. Then she gets paired up with Alejandro(ALex), a guy from the "South" sdie of Chigago for Chemistry class. ALex is a gang member in the Latio Bloodz, and Brittany gets upset because Alex might mess up Britanys "Perfect" grade average. Alex's friends offer hima bet. Alex takes the bet to try & look tough to everyone. The bet was to try and have sex with Brittany before Thanksgiving. If Alex won the bet he would win his friends car. If he lost he would lose his most prised posetion; His bike. But ALex starts getting feelings for Brittany, and forgets about the bet. When Alex gets shot by Hector(Leader of Latino Bloodz), Brittany comes and visits him. He tells her all about the bet, and eventually they never see each other again...Until they go to college. He visit her sister, which meant alot to Brittany because Brittany love her sister deeply. Then he tells Brittany that he plans to ask Brittany to marry him when they finish college. It made me cry at the end :'D
Where Infinite Crisis ended, 52 begins the most ambitious comic book storyline ever. A weekly series, 52, for once in a DC series, not showcase Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman. Definitely showed readers that there are so many great heroes out there beyond the Big Three!
This delightful collection of three short stories is a must-read for the holiday season. Each story is a different twist on a familiar holiday movie. You’ll delight in the modern-day version of An American Carol by Jasmine Cresswell, Miracle on Bannock Street by Colleen Collins and It’s a Wonderful Night by Kathleen Long. An American Carol: Charles Brentwood has allowed himself to become the bitter old miser we so often see portrayed in The Christmas Carol. What’s different about this character is that he really is related to Charles Dickens, the writer of the original story. In the process of self-discovery, he realizes his mistakes of the past and allows Christmas to work its transforming power. Miracle on Bannock Street: Take one ambitious female private investigator, a court-appointed attorney, a wayward 11-year-old, a very confused Santa and you’ve got a miracle on Bannock Street. Stella is saddled with Bobby, who’s been in and out of the system and is about to get sent to a school of boys but it’s the holidays and the judge doesn’t want to send him there now. Turn around being fair play, Victor gets Santa to stay at his house. Taking a leap, blindly trusting, this group forms a magical Christmas tie. This was my favorite of the anthology because the little boy’s Christmas wish comes true. It’s a Wonderful Night: Meredith Downey had never planned to stay in Dodge, New Jersey. She’d left right after high school to become a doctor never to return again, leaving behind Matt Riley. That was, until her father died and left the town without a doctor. Her sister, Melody, is the one that left and traveled the world. But one wonderful, snowy night, Meredith and Matt got their wish and realized that things sometimes may not be what they seem. If you love to watch those black-and-white movies every year, then pop the corn, make a hot chocolate, take a front row seat and enjoy this book of holiday romances.
