The book brought me to a place of pure surprise. I never thought that a woman who tried to have it all and seemed sucessful at it could lead to such a good read. Claire Raphael worked hard as a wife, mother and business woman, and had it all turned around in a moment. The moment her husband served her divorce papers with an order to vacate their home and a summons to see the judge the following week. I was like no he didn't. I enjoyed how Claire came to examine her life, her husband and her role as a parent...the story raised issues of can you do it all, or will you fall short. If you do what are your priorities, and can any one person meet the challenges facing woman and men to do it all and do it well. Highly recommend this read it was just that good.
This book was mentioned in the previous book I've read. It is a book about a "future" Utopia. I was listening to it on downloadable audio. It was too, I don't know, preachy and lecture-like. I just wasn't enjoying it, so I quit listening.
I really really liked it and couldn't put it down. Reading the journal entries made me think about my own known and unknown eastern european ancestors. I especially enjoyed reading the words from Drew's grandfather, written to his own infant daughter. His lack of formal schooling was apparent, but you could feel the love he had in his words, and you could feel the love he had FOR words. Having read such similar uneducated words from a letter of my own great-great grandfather written in Hungary over one hundred years ago, it made me wish I had known him and had walked those lands he farmed all those years ago. And while those days were full of hardships, sorrow and loss, they were also full of beauty, happy times and love. And while I really enjoyed Nina's character, I also learned 'what not to do' in life and who 'not to be'. It was very fine story. This book made we want to go out and buy something made of amber!
This is one of the best popular medical histories I've yet to read. It is extremely well-researched and I definitely believe that anybody could pick it up with no sense of the history behind the state of medicine in the 1850s and they could get an excellent feel for not only medical theory of the time but also the atmosphere of the lower-class areas of London. I particularly liked the way that the author explained the logic behind the miasma theory of disease as well as the challenges with early anesthesia and the link these two had with each other through the development of knowledge regarding the dispersal of gases. One of the things that I liked the most about this book was that the author didn't take a presentist point of view. That is, he didn't just the past by today's standards. Yes, the miasma theory turned out to be incorrect, but he went through the critiques of the theory not exclusively from a twenty-first century standpoint but through the eyes of one of its first critics, Dr. Jonathan Snow. Highly recommended.
This is truly that special (and truly rare) gem of a series that just keeps on giving, and never stops delivering. Each new books becomes my favorite and Magic Rises is no exception. I adored every ounce of it, and devoured it.
Quiet little mystery of who is stealing trees from the forest. Paper airplanes lead to Bear, who confesses a desire to compete in an airplane competition. When he promises to replace the trees, the other forest creatures band together and help him with his dream.
