"Dove Arising" an intriguing futuristic science-fiction thrill-ride is set on Lunar Base IV one of the moon bases humanity fled to after the ice cap melted flooding the Earth, resources including oil depleted, and civil battles broke out. In Greenhouse 22 fifteen year old Phaet Theta works as Gardener Assistant dreaming of becoming a bioengineer until disaster strikes and her mother is arrested for "Disruptive Print" an offence that could mean a death sentence if proven guilty.Rather than live with her two younger siblings in the disease and degradation of the "Shelter" Phaet enlists in the Militia struggling to be first in the brutal training program; a placement that could provide the cash to free her mother and save her sister and brother from starvation. But the tournament is fierce, her only support from an unlikely alliance with the inscrutable Wezn (Wes) novative and imaginative Karen Bao creates a policed society on the moon that's intolerant, oppressive and governed by an autocratic Council who will say anything to stay in power. In this bleak and dark atmosphere Phaet joins the Militia, an organization whose high-ranked officers are heartless and cruel, putting down any kind of disturbance or perceived insurrection with the Electrostun, a weapon that can electrocute a fast-paced, action-packed story reminiscent of Ender's Android game and Divergent, Phaet and Wes struggle to be first in a training regime that makes them targets for a bully and his girlfriend, a knife slashing, friendly fire and failed ambushes. The tension and suspense escalate as the plot heats up when Phaet not only faces her final try and placement, but her mother's trial is slated to be heard. As happenings unfold they progress quickly and smoothly to a confrontation at the end that begs for a this story there's an undercurrent of deep affection in the devotion between Phaet and her best mate Umbriel whose friendship is comfortable and trusting, although promises have not been spoken nor their future planned. Yet it is the emotional connection between Phaet and Wes that arouses interest as they test to deny the powerful feelings that have begun to stir. It will be interesting to see how this all amazing stories it's the personalities of its characters who create it a page-turner by infusing energy, realism and passion into the drama. "Dove Arising" is no exception with forgettable characters like Phaet (Stripes) Theta the young teen with gray hair and a smooth face whose dutiful, competitive and solitary as she grapples with a grueling training regime. Highly intelligent, but struggling with the loss of her father and questioning her mother's arrest she demonstrates leadership and bravery as she faces each fresh challenge. In contrast Umbriel Phi is intense, loyal and protective, caring for Phaet's siblings while she's away but is not as powerful a personality as Wes Kappa a mysterious loner who's level-headed, daring, resourceful and perceptive. Yet it's the sinister, saccharine tone of the ambitious, backstabbing Callisto Chi and the reckless vindictiveness of the "Giant", the bully Jupiter along with the callousness of the Militia hierarchy that adds a menacing chill to the story."Dove Arising" is an exciting and intoxicating first novel by Karen Bao. I rate it highly and can't wait to see where she takes the story next.
Dove Arising is about a girl named Phaet (pronounced fate) who lives on the moon. When her mother is taken away, she must do what she can to protect her family. This leads her on an adventure to join the military to obtain her mother VE ARISING was great; it was enjoyable and fun. It initially seems to have a bland plotline, but as the story progresses, readers realize there is a larger plotline at work. It starts slow and it took a long time before the novel actually started going anywhere. However, once it did, it definitely didn’t disappoint. Once readers reach the climactic chaos, they’ll be begging for a sequel! I also thought it was interesting that there wasn’t any romance --- that’s quite special for young adult e characters were great, and Karen Bao did an perfect job making all of the characters seem like full humans. I especially enjoyed Phaet. She was not a kick-butt girl like in most YA novels; instead, she felt like a normal human that was thrust into an intense situation. It was very convincing and relatable. She was a soft-spoken girl with a lot of thoughts in her mind, so I was glad the novel was in first person point of view. I’m really excited to see the how Phaet develops in the future.I also thought that the globe building in DOVE ARISING was beautiful good. I really loved the military training scenes; they were vivid, clear and really well executed. I wanted to know more about the civilization on the moon, though. Readers only had Phaet’s town to compare it to, and I wanted to know what else there was. The society in DOVE ARISING moved to the moon for a better opportunity, but the book never mentions how not good Earth really is or what it is like --- it’s all speculation. I hope future installments in the series expand on the world, because it could be very promising…this potential makes me wish to obtain a keep of the next book really ter reading this book, I had a lot of questions and not enough answers, so I can’t call it “outstanding.” However, I still felt like it was really enjoyable, and I appreciated all of the twists. I’m definitely going to continue on with the series --- I’m really intrigued by what is going to happen to Phaet!Reviewed by Christa O.
I was so excited and looking forward to reading this book, and was beyond excited when I was approved through the Penguin First to Read program. Ultimately there were a few too a lot of problems for me to have fun this book.I really should begin re-reading the summary blurbs before starting the book - it might save me a lot of concerns and issues. Instead, I spent the first 15% irritated that the main character, Phaet, hadn't said a single word or responded in any sort of method to anyone that spoke to her. Even so, I'll buy the selective-mute aspect of her personality, especially in a society where the likelihood of someone listening is always high, but there could have been some sort of response. Instead she just internally mused, endlessly. Someone asks a question, she thinks about it. Someone states something, she considers it. Someone requests, she contemplates. Then she randomly starts speaking, still sparsely, but it was already beyond irritating to me. I'm not a large fan of always being in someone's head, hearing about what things are event and not feeling like we're participating in the scenes as they're happening. There's also the fact that Phaet prickly personality reminded me a lot of Katniss (The Hunger Games) and it's not the first similarity I noted to other e world-building felt patched together. There's a globe where people have given up their essential freedoms in order to be kept "safe" on this Lunar colony. But the liberties that have been supplanted are random and don't create sense for a society that is truly concerned with the number of population. There's no regulation on the number of children, or mating ages/rules. There's rent and Committee fees, meal costs, and low paying jobs. There are ridiculous laws versus any number of things, and there's Huge Brother watching all the time through their handscreens - which also provide convenient info about other h characters and world, if not done well, are enough to create it so I don't have fun a book. However, this book also had the problem of not having an actual plot. Phaet ends up at a Militia training facility, trying to earn enough cash to help her family and save her mother, but there's no true inducement to any of her actions. She's kind of just going along, doing the bare minimum that she has to do - until she has to do more. Even so, it never feels really necessary. It's just one girl's struggle, and honestly I kept waiting for the moment when "Phaet's logically ordered globe begins to crumble..." But by 41% into the book there was just...ck to those similarities that I was mentioning - Phaet's personality reminds me a lot of Katniss, the training reminds me a lot of Tris' in Divergent, the unrequited love interest (as her oldest friend) reminds me a lot of Gale and Katniss' dynamic. Then there's the fresh boy, who's quiet and mysterious and trying to support Phaet out....and he just might have feelings for her that are a bit more, which - of course - reminds me of Peeta. I could draw comparisons to scenes that I've seen in Ender's Android game about the simulations of ship ere's just nothing there to hold me wanting to read on. I do want I knew what happened, or if there was something worth continuing for, but not enough to hold pushing myself through a book that's doing nothing to hook me.
I first read "Dove" when it first arrived in our local library. I was thirteen years old and entranced by what I'd read. This special "coming of age" non-fiction account, inspired me along with hordes of others to pursue the kind of adventure that Robin Lee Graham wrote of in "Dove". For both blue water sailors and those dreaming of such experiences, this story and the film that followed is to sailing, what "A River Runs Through It" and its film was to fly fishing.I have no doubt that global blue water cruising had increased in popularity as a effect of Graham's voyage and his subsequent book that reads like a classic coming of age novel. After all these years, and having read nearly all the other books written by world trotting sailors, a spark of nostalgia for those days in the early '70s inspired me to read it again. I'm really glad I did, because this one stands out among all the others. Not because it was one of the first of its kind, but because Graham created it personal. His acc was of a boy coming of age during an extraordinary adventure in both idyllic and life threatening situations - all before the age of GPS and true time communications.If you're a fan of coming of age literature or have an itch for armchair travel, this story will do more for you than satisfy the itch. It will inspire you to obtain out there and try yourself and perhaps explore real happiness.
Having sailed in high school, now that I'm approaching retirement the thought of an adventure sailing is only further sparked by latest charter of a sailboat around the is book fanned the flame.I enjoyed it from the perspective of a young person who, initially discarded God, but found Him in the people, the islands, the wildlife and even in a lonely sea. Yes, the haters say it's sappy, but they are likely jealous of the love and attachment he found in Patti and Robins deeper connection to ey just didn't talk the talk, but walked it and came back to embrace a lifestyle that embodies all they learned. That life is bigger than the things we collect, that the land and the sea are to be cared for and appreciated as the bonuses they are. Amazing on them!
I found this book in the back of my 6th grade classroom and read it instead of paying any attention to math class. His story, along with the accompanying National Geographic images stand with me for years and I dreamed of following in his wake. AT this point I guess I'll never sail around the world, but I did plan some vacations a lot of years later largely because my first exposure to DOVE - including my trip to South ve this book to any boy ( or girl) on your bonus list and allow them start to dream of a journey around the globe - who knows where it will take them?
Look at the cover. It says it all. Before satnav or GPS or chartplotters this child sailed around the globe with a freakin' compass! There were no marinas. There were anchorages, maybe, if you were lucky. This was just a child on a boat 1000 miles from nowhere and finding his method somewhere. Sorry, this isn't created up "reality" like you see on TV. This is as true as it gets.
Reading this book let’s you know it can be done in 6 years. But remember this child had a lot of support, had sailed to Hawaii twice before en famille, and spoiler-alert: lived in Hawaii during most of his day- and weeklong- trips out to ~ yes, still intrepid ~ polynesian islands. It still has incredibly valuable info to the sailor and circumnavigator. Thank you Robin Graham. Salut !
Got it for my dad. He loved it. I can tell he also has the soul of a man who wishes he could sail away from everyone he knows and live on a little boat for five years or more in solitude. He felt a deep admiration for the author and wrote me a letter about how moving the book was for him.
I will admit that I am only part method through the book but I am enjoying it. I wasn't expecting such a amazing story from a 16 year old fellow but the book is done very well. It is refreshing to see how well people treated him on his journey. I do search myself feeling sorry for his mother because there is so much that could happen and infrequent opportunity for communication, unlike these days.
I first read this book when I was around 15, but one of the earlier editions with colour pictures, I think perhaps the periodicals from the National Geographic created into a book? It was beautifully written and has the kind of potential to be life impacting. Like someone else said. Better to read after college then before.Anyway this ver is quite various and talks a lot about his g/f and then wife, Patti. In fact almost as much or more then the voyage.I think I preferred the first ver and would recommend that over this for a first time reader, but this was interesting as well. Almost another book.Looking foward to reading the sequal about their life in Montana afterwards - Home Is The Sailor.
Perfect story not over cluttered with going of age nonsense. Told the story in an interesting straightforward manner. Amazing balance of sailing and land experience. Would have enjoyed some illustrations / maps inline of areas visited but google maps backfilled side by side. Amazing read if you are interested in sailing.
The song "Dead Embryonic Cells" was my first exposure to Sepultura on MTV's Headbanger's Ball back in 1991 (anyone remember that?). I was hooked by the drums first, but also by the gruff, screamy vocals and general heaviness with frequent tempo changes. I simply had to have this album. It was a lot to take in at first, but a few listens all the method through cured that! This album, along with Beneath the Remains before it, is proof that massive metal is probably the hardest type of rock to play, not counting progressive rock with weird changing time signatures. Arise is probably a small more refined than Beneath the Remains, but that's probably due to the improved sound quality. Whatever it may be, it's still a amazing album that any metal fan should have. Also, obtain a magnifying glass to pore over the cover- a lot of little gory info in there!
Sepultura mixes a tribal rhythms and intriguing guitar work with a solid metal core, and it is this that differentiates them from others bandsArise is a crucial album for the band mixed with innovation that characterized Sepultura's earlier work, Cross-cut power chord riffs pulse between varied textures of lyrical structure laid out to easy almost pop tempos with an inner life of percussive complexity.Every track of this album is absolutely killer, technically and UCTION: Roomiest of any Sepultura album, this production captures a refined guitar tone and perfect vocals while managing to create the drums almost too crisp to merge cleanly into the roar of charging extreme RICALLY: this albums stands defiant, viciously dissecting society and the human condition and setting it to a stirring selection of speed metal with an overemphasis on politics but an enduring honesty of anger.
"Arise" is one of the best Death Metal albums ever made by any band! Absolutely Massive and Ferocious, Every song is better than average and will either leave you with your mouth hanging begin in "awe" or banging your head until your neck hurts, Or both! The only other Sepultura album that comes close to this is it's predecessor "Beneath the Remains" which comes close......But Arise is flat out Brilliant! " Even today over 25 years later "it doesn't obtain the recognition it truly deserves"......It will keep up versus any other Thrash/Death Metal album from any other band you can think of! I can go on and on about this album......But Hey, you be the JUDGE!
I bought this album for the cover (found out about Morbid Angel's Blessed Are The Sick the same way) At the time, '91, I was looking for quick aggressive melody and when I picked up Sepultura's Arise and saw the cover I said to myself "This album looks like its going to kick [email protected]#$% into the ground". And it did. Not just because the melody is so brutal and well recorded, but because of the nature of the lyrics which are thoughtful, very political and VERY angry. They're worthy of any number of '80s era punk bands (not the limp pop mind candy of today) that place their frustration with the globe and it's injustice to music. Max Cavalera's almost death metal like vocal delivery just ups the intensity. Arise is Sepultura's finest album if not their most musically sophisticated. This is before they got interested in tribal music, when Max, Igor, Andreas and Paulo wanted to just kick some major ass, thrash and vent. Quite simply, at the time they were probably the best metal band on the planet. Who knew that sunny Brazil could be such a hotbed for metal activity? It's a long method from The Girl From Ipanema to Infected Voice. The gift tracks included in this release create a amazing album that much better. Buy it now.
This application does not work you can not select and intervals available, not see if they are there or not. They need to scrap it and begin over. The latest application was amazing no problems but this one sucks. I have uninstalled it and will not install again.
Not enough diversity. Quality of Christian films has improved greatly over the latest 20 years. Diversity is one zone that is lacking. Pureflix seems to do a bit better as I check thw libraryof movoes they have available. It is hard to beat the price; Dove is only half the prize of Pureflix. However, diversity is very necessary to me and soo I will male the switch.
Amazing content, horrible fresh interface. Please let option for use of old set up. This fresh one is atrocious. The old option was much easier to navigate and search content. The old method was beautiful standard across platforms. Don't test and reinvent the wheel
Customer service is not readily accessible when they have a promotion and you test and call customer service they will tell you that you have the wrong number and you have to call the number on the website. anytime you wish to resolve an problem you can email them because when you call them you can't obtain through. there should not be two separate numbers for dove customer service as a customer I don't wish to test and sort that out.
**Buyer Beware** This is a Mormon channel that comes across as Judeo-Christian. IT IS NOT. Check out the movies;, Ephraim and Passage to Zarehemla. Those are only two that really promote Mormonism, but there are more. they use other movies that have just enough christian theme to trap you. I know I'm one who was trapped. You have been warned.
