Review of 'The Final Strife' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is a very interesting piece of mythology. It took me a while honestly to get into it, which is odd, but I think that's because of my lack of education in African myths; while I love studying the world's religions, this is not one that's come up.

Review of 'Internet for the People' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

One of the best books on the history of the internet written in this century. It begins with the important histories of the '90's, and then moves onto the latter eras that have so far shaped our poor excuse for an information highway. But it offers hope, all at the same time.

Review of 'Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan' on 'Goodreads'

No rating

One of the most in depth accounts of one of the most remarkable leaders of all time. While highly detailed, yet also highly readable, this book paints a very interesting picture of one of the most possibly infamous leaders in history aside from adolf Hitler, depending on how you look at history and which side you're on.



Hirohito was one of the most provocative and influential people of his time, and while he attempted somewhat to move his country forward, or at least he wanted to, this book demonstrates how he was stopped at every turn while trying to do so. He could have been more well-liked than we was is he hadn't been forced into starting a war that his people never should have had any reason to participate in.

The White Tower (Hardcover, 2016, Michael Wisehart) 5 stars

Review of 'The White Tower' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I have read a lot of fantasy series in my life... and so far, this has been the best; this first book will have you flowing right into the second one as soon as you finish it. By the end, you have the most magnificent pile of developing characters, and everyone wants to know more. Page turner to the last.

Review of 'It' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

On re-reading this for the second time (my first was back in about 2012 when I was still in college), I forgot how many themes are interwoven into the plot. there is definitely parallels between the clown Pennywise, and Satan. The context is even more potent when actually reading about the author's faith. He is a Christian, and this novel demonstrates that.

One of the best guides for helping Christians overcome their difficulties. we oftentimes forget, God is there. In this book, Blake gives examples for most scenarios that we run into, along with a method to fix it. The hardest thing about this is, after reading it, how many of us will put his advice into practice? I plan to.

Enchantress (AudiobookFormat, 2014, Brilliance Audio) 5 stars

Review of 'Enchantress' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I have certainly read a lot of fantasy novels in my life, and this one is one of the most unique takes I have seen yet on the idea of enchantment/magic. If you love stories where both male and female characters are portrayed as equals, then, you will certainly appreciate this one, I think. So, take this leap and fall into the amazing lives of one brother and sister, both with a dream to fulfill, and watch them accomplish amazing things in a world torn asunder by those who are supposed to be trusted.
