    Oasis Of The Seas review [App]  2019-11-21 13:40

    I place this application on my iphone. It is very primary but useful. The navigation between the decks is a small clunky. I also place it in my mother's Samsung Galaxy. Although I prefer the navigation on the android device system, only 5 of the 18 decks loaded making the application useless. Oh well. IPhone application is better.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    A definite winner. Interesting, eccentric characters with a rich backstory that I look forward to learning more as well as see how they develop. The murder had a plethora of possible suspects with a satisfying conclusion.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    I love cozy mysteries and was excited to see one set in my own backyard. But this one was a near snooze for me. The constant cheesy one liners about the 60's era TV shows that the main character's ex-actress aunt appeared in got to be a total bore after the ninth or tenth mention. And the aunt's "connection" to several celebrities and popular events created me wonder if this was the female ver of Forrest Gump. Not to mention that the "death by the sea" did not happen until nearly 100 pages into the story. But the clinker for me was that, since I do live in the zone of the setting, some of the author's descriptions of said zone are method off. I obtain trying to contain a small local flavor into the story but for goodness sakes, please create it actual local flavor. And I do realize that readers who are not familiar with the zone would not know the difference, but it created the story less enjoyable for me. I kept reading because I had paid for the book and didn't wish to waste my cash and I do admit that the story did obtain better after the murder took put but it just never really had me hooked.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea by Kathleen Bridge is the first book in the cozy A By the Sea Mystery series. The main hero Liz Holt has returned home to attractive Melbourne Beach, Florida and her family run Indialantic by the Sea z has been satisfied jumping back in at the hotel and helping her Aunt Amelia who was an actress at one point and still has her quirks. Liz even likes her aunt’s feisty parrot, Barnacle Bob. But as the hotel takes on a wealthy couple the wife does everything to try the nerves of Liz and her ever, as much as they debated on asking their guests to leave and take their demands with them they never wished to search the lady murdered. Now the list of suspects is growing by the min so Liz decides to do her own small bit of anyone that knows me knows I love a amazing small cozy mystery with their quirkiness and eccentric characters. Death by the Sea had the quirky edge that I have fun and even added in Barnacle Bob the parrot who was a laugh a min however when finished with this one I debated between a two and three star rating as unfortunately I didn’t fall in love with this opener in the series. After much debate I’m giving this one three stars and what saved it was the setting, Melbourne is somewhere I’ve vacationed quite a few times and enjoyed the virtual trip back there and then there was the few info here and there that I’m normally a fan.What stopped me loving this one was it was just so darn wordy throughout. There are dozens of characters involved and as each joins I felt like an information dump was going on. And then the mystery didn’t even obtain going until beautiful late in the book and by then I was getting more than impatient waiting. Even with the information dump feeling to a lot of things though there was a backstory with the main hero that kept being brought into the story that almost felt as if I had missed something somewhere like this was a spin off or continuation. I’m all for hero development and plenty of suspects but this one just seemed to go a small too far in some locations and not enough in others to where the story just dragged too much for me so I’m not sure I would continue onward in the series.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea by Kathleen Bridge is the first novel in A By the Sea Mystery series. Elizabeth “Liz” Holt has returned home to Melbourne Beach, Florida to The Indialantic by the Sea Hotel and Emporium which is owned by Amelia Eden Holt, her aunt. Aunt Amelia is an eccentric former actress who helped raise Liz along with Liz’s father, Fenton Holt. Liz is living in the beach house. She helps out in the hotel and is working on her next novel (well—she is supposed to be). Their recent guest is Regina Harrington-Worth and her husband David who will be staying with them while their historic home is being demolished and a modern monstrosity is built in its place. Regina considers The Indialantic beneath her, but it is the only hotel with a vacancy that will let pets. After a successful Spring Fling event, they explore that Regina was found dead in her suite, her husband was stabbed, and some very expensive jewels have gone missing. Liz immediately dives in to search who committed the dastardly deed. Who disliked Regina enough to slay her (that is one long suspect list)? Join Liz at The Indialantic as she examines the clues and questions the suspects to catch the ath by the Sea is a slow starter. The murder does not happen until the forty-four percent mark. The beginning of the book is an introduction to the Liz, the hotel, the employees, Liz’s family, the guests, and the shops and their owners. The author overwhelms readers with the amount of info she is dishing out. Kathleen Bridge is a wordy writer. It creates a rich environment, but it also makes a slow-moving story. I do like the attractive hotel and emporium that Ms. Bridge made in Death by the Sea. I did feel that the story jumps around making it disjointed. Liz has returned home after a disastrous relationship that ended in Liz being physically injured. Since Liz and her paramour are public figures, the whole debacle was fodder for the media. There are numerous quirky characters with the largest one being Aunt Amelia. A famous actress during the 1960s who has passed her love of 60s sitcoms and films along to Liz. The different shows and films from that time-period are mentioned throughout the book (Dark Shadows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Gilligan’s Island for example). I enjoyed the comments regarding the famous teen girl mystery novels which included Nancy Drew, Connie Blair, and Dana Girls (which I collect). There was an abundance of repetition (it is a common malady in books that I have read recently) along with a cliché nasty detective. The pace picks up slightly in the second half of the book as the investigation gets under way. I think the author tried to place too much into one book. The hotel, the numerous quirky characters, the special shops, Liz’s nemesis, Liz and her issues, a love interest, Regina’s father and how he died, the treasure of the San Carlos, Spring Fling, Fenton Holt and his practice, the obnoxious bird with the foul mouth, the hairless cat, and Liz and her writing difficulties are just a few of the stuff in the book. The murder of Regina was not as complicated as it seemed, and it can be solved before the reveal. At the end of the book, readers are still left wondering how Liz was injured. We are told about her injuries, but not how they happened. There are also some contradictions (one example is the hotel is not doing well, but an employee has a huge suite and some people seem to live there for free). My rating for Death by the Sea is 3 out of 5 stars. I am hoping the author will scale back in A Killing by the Sea.*I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book. The comment and opinions expressed are strictly my own.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Any cozy mystery that references Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and also contains a treasure is a champion in my book - and Death by the Sea, Kathleen Bridge's debut entry in her fresh By the Sea Mystery series has them all! Bestselling author Liz Holt returns home to the Indialantic by the Sea hotel in attractive Melbourne Beach, Florida, looking for a change in lifestyle after scandal upset her life in Manhattan. She's reconnecting with family - her father Fenton, her amazing aunt Amelia (what a hoot - I would love to have her in my family!), her best mate Kate - and a host of other friends, when one of the guests at the Indialantic by the Sea is found murdered and robbed of her fabulous jewelry. Liz and her squad of Detectiveteers decide to investigate as any amazing sleuth would, and set about to explore the murderer (who surprised this reader!!!). A very nicely written cozy and the beginning of what promises to be a fun fresh series. A+ to Death by the Sea!

    Death By the Sea is a first in a fresh series by Kathleen Bridge.I'm fresh to this author, but I've found another mystery that I thoroughly z Holt has returned to Indialantic, back to her home and her family and z left Fresh York Town under a cloud of shame and humility, bearing the scars of a tragic breakup, both inside and z is powerful and determined to create a new begin and the cast of colourful characters that the author has made are just the thing to support Liz e book started out a bit slow, but about half method through, things picked up and I was soon drawn to the mystery and the story behind it.I really enjoyed Aunt Amelia, she is a kind hearted person who loves to take care of everyone. She is quite the pip and I had loads of fun laughing alone with her is fresh series will appeal to all cozy mystery fans so be sure to pre order your copy now.I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    I am a huge fan of Kathleen Bridge’s Hamptons Home & Garden series, so I was very eager to read the first book in her fresh By the Sea Mystery series. Death by the Sea takes us to the beach community of Melbourne, Florida, and introduces Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Holt who has returned home after a decade in Fresh York that ended in a tabloid scandal. Kathleen Bridge continued with a delightful writing style engaging my interest by bringing to life the oceanfront community, hotel environment, and a plethora of entertaining characters, but the descriptions and introductions seem to be the main focus for an extended amount of time, more than I personally prefer in my cozy mysteries. Where’s the murder? Karma definitely had a few amazing targets to choose from, but you’ll need to wait patiently for the crime to occur. Ok, the synopsis on the book websites gives you a clue to the victim, but it takes awhile to manifest.I did really have fun the informative references to treasure hunting, chicory coffee, the area’s history, and 60s tv programs and commercials with which I grew up, and while waiting for the crime and the subsequent investigation to obtain going, Kathleen Bridge did make a rich set of characters and an engaging subplot dealing with Liz Holt’s scars, emotional and physical. The rich characters which contain her father, her quirky aunt, friends, BFFs, and a possible romantic interest provide a bit of humor…don't forget a very odd cat Venus and an obnoxious parrot Barnacle Bob. But despite waiting for the crime/investigation, I enjoyed this first book and am eager for the next book, A Killing by the Sea. The ongoing store business, unique hotel events, Liz’s writing career, and a blooming romance are intriguing enough to create me a fan!It is always exciting to see a cozy with my two favorite words. No, not Murderous Fun, although that's always a amazing to see. No,…Recipes Included! It's even more exciting when the recipes aren't random, but create for a complete food or are actually connected to the theme or characters in the story. Kathleen Bridge has included four marvelous recipes excellent beginning to end. From Pops’ Deli-casies By the Sea we begin with Pops’ Kalamata Hummus, next have fun an entree of Baked Grouper Bites with Banana Salsa and a side of Coconut Rice, then have fun from Chef Pierre’s Kitchen his Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies. Yum!Disclosure: I received an ARC, but my insights and comments are voluntary and honest.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea is the first book in Kathleen Bridge’s By the Sea Mystery series. The author provides attractive descriptions and lots of history about the family-run inn and the surrounding area. The characters are well developed. As is often real in the first book in a series, the mystery doesn’t begin until close to the middle of the book, but then the well-plotted mystery moved at a fast pace, with lots of twists and turns. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment in this z Holt, an award-winning author, returns to Melbourne Beach, Florida from Manhattan, where she’s lived for the past ten years, after being involved in a scandal with her writer boyfriend. She’s staying at her childhood home, an old style Florida hotel, Indialantic by the Sea Hotel, which is owned by her eighty-year-old paternal great-aunt, Amelia Eden Holt, a former tv hero actress. After her mother passed away when she was five years old, she moved there with her dad, Fenton, who is an attorney. Amelia has a foul mouthed but adorable thirty-year-old macaw named Barnacle Bob. Liz’s great-aunt and dad surprised her with the beach house so she would have a put to continue her writing, but she’s using her role helping at the Indialantic and being her dad’s assistant as an excuse not to write. A huge portion of the hotel is now home to a collection of quirky characters and their pets. Liz is organizing the First annual Indialantic Spring Fling by the Sea at the emporium they recently opened and dealing with Regina Harrington-Worth, their fresh celebrity guest, who is overbearing and making everyone miserable. Regina and her husband are staying in the Oceana Suite and when a robbery occurs, she’s strangled and her husband is stabbed. Fenton’s friend, Agent Charlotte Pearson, is in charge of the case, but Liz is determined to search out if it was a burglary gone wrong or an intentional act and Liz’s childhood friend, Kate Fields, and several residents obtain involved in finding out what happened so their lives can return to normal. Sparks fly between Liz and Ryan Stone, who’s taken a leave from the Fresh York Town Fire Department to support his grandfather, Pops, at the Deci-casies by the Sea while Pops’ fresh knee heals.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    This is the first installment in the By the Sea Series set in the Indianatlantic Inn set on a barrier island off the coast of Melbourne, Florida. I really enjoyed Ghostal Living in the author's prior series and I was eager to test this one. I was also attracted to the cover, description and the attractive setting of Melbourne Beach/Sebastian Inlet, Florida. Liz Holt, a successful author in her own right, has quietly returned to live with her father and great-aunt Amelia and her squawky parrot, Barnacle Bob, after a traumatic break-up with a Pulitzer Prize winning author has left her with a scarred face. Liz is trying to write another book but continues to have flashbacks of the poor night. While trying to restore the Inn to its former grandeur, Aunt Amelia regales the reader with all of her history and knowledge of shows from the 1960's and 70's like Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, I Dream of Jeannie, to name a few. There are so a lot of more, which diverted from the mystery and just seemed like overkill. Wealthy socialite and guest Regina Harrington-Worth and her husband David are the only current guests. To the consternation of the historical society, she is trying to tear down a nearby landmark, Castlemara, which she inherited from her father, so she can develop the property for herself. She has managed to anger someone to the point of no return because she is found murdered in her suite and the find for her killer(s) begins.I really, really wanted to like this book more than I did. From the beginning, I was overwhelmed with the number of characters and potential suspects. The murder didn't happen until far too long and by that time, it was hard to stay interested in such a disjointed pace. I was very confused about the actual status of the Inn; at times, it appears that they are on a shoestring budget but then there is the Worth's luxurious suite and the fancy shops. The attempted romance between Liz and visiting Fresh York Town firefighter Ryan Stone seems too contrived. By the end of the book, which I did finish in about 5 or 6 settings, I honestly had no true interest in finding the killer. That being said, it is the beginning of the series, so I will give the next book a read and hope that the characters gel better for me this time.**Thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for a complimentary copy of this book. My review is voluntary.

    Fancy Sea Shell Set | 3 Unique Sea Shells - 2 Sputnik Sea Urchin and a Knobby Starfish Complete The Set | Beach House Decor review []  2020-1-16 3:48

    Purchased these to decorate a table at a birthday party but I am definitely going to use these in my home afterwards. I'm even considering giving some as party favors, they are really gorgeous. The size is excellent and the gloss and colors are so vibrant. If you're looking for decorative shells for whatever purpose, these are the ones you need.

    Fancy Sea Shell Set | 3 Unique Sea Shells - 2 Sputnik Sea Urchin and a Knobby Starfish Complete The Set | Beach House Decor review []  2020-1-16 3:48

    These shells were beautiful. Sure, you can obtain them at the beach, but honestly, they're not any cheaper there, and these are at least as good. These are not "hermit crab shells" per se, that is, most of them do not have openings huge enough for a hermit crab -- but two of the shells do, and within two hours of putting the shells in the cage, he had already "re-arranged the furniture" and had changed shells into one of the two biggest shells. Amazing product. This family-run company knows what it's doing.

    These Sea Shells (Polished) were absolutely even more attractive in person !!! Amazing protection for packaging, NOT one was damaged or broken !! I required some shells that had to fill a vase in my entry method and they look absolutely beautiful. I am probably going to buy more in the future as I have more "shell" theme's to complete. The price was so reasonable too. Excellent shells, just as the product described.

    I got these for my 2-year-old for her birthday because she had been obsessed with seashells since we had gone to the beach that summer and found some small, broken pieces. She loved these. There was a wide variety, only one or two repeats. Colors were red, brown, green, white, cream. Smallest was about 1.5 inches long, largest was a clam-shell type about 3 inches across.

    These shells are attractive and my family and mates all loved them. I used them on a dining table display along with a lighthouse and placemats showing sail boats along with ocean and beach scenes. I have never had a Summer theme in my dining room. We are really enjoying the display. Thank you.

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    Leza Lowitz’s Up From The Sea is the first artistic response I’ve seen to the Fukushima Tsunami/Nuclear disaster of 2013, and it’s a powerful, special work. Unique, first of all, in that novels in verse are virtually unheard of, allow alone carried off successfully. But unique, mostly, in that Lowitz makes this tale of a teen-ager, Kai, whose globe is torn to bits by the horrendous event, serve as a metaphor for the trials of an entire society subjected to such cataclysmic devastation.Just an ordinary spring morning,ordinary war with ybe she spoke to me in Englishand I answered in Japanese–don’t even remember now. . . .Whatever it was seems so stupidat 2:46 p.m., when I’m sitting in mathwaiting for the bell to ringand the earth starts to LEZA LOWITZThat moment launches the story, of course, and you’d expect to encounter lives and buildings rent asunder. Death and horror. There is all of that here, but it’s not the center of the novel. More necessary even than the story people trying to recover and rebuild from such a catastrophe is a story that began long before the sea washed his village away–the find for his low me a short private detour. A couple of decades [email protected]#$%!&[email protected]#e swept our neighborhood. Flames took three thousand homes in twelve hours. Landmarks disappeared. People died. Families lost touch. Even with modern communication devices–not so modern, actually, cell phones were rare–it was difficult for a while for people to obtain back in touch. The devastation didn’t approach Fukushima’s, but there is a parallel. A mile or so away from our house (which the fire spared) there is a crossroads dominated by a large eucalyptus tree. People took to posting notices. Found a dog. Lost a cat. Tell my parents I’m okay. Has anyone seen Jane?Kai has already lost touch with his father, has yearned every day to somehow reestablish the connection. Now, with everything else seemingly destroyed, finding his lost father seems the only method to create his life whole ing too much, singing to himselfas he walked along the pier,laughing loudly–things a Japanese dad would never do.He embarrassed me so bad,sometimes I wishedhe’d go away.and then,one day,he making Kai’s dilemma the core of this story, Up From the Sea, evokes an emotional response that the ugly pictures and statistics can’t match. And we realize that it’s the private relationships that have priority even over the reconstruction of hearth and home. The book doesn’t need Fukushima for Kai’s find to draw us into Kai’s heart and mind. However, the method that Lowitz has joined the two is a stunning literary achievement.jumping out of chair

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    “The bigger the issue, the smaller you write.”--Richard PriceInstead of focusing on the overwhelming statistics generated by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan—nearly 16,000 deaths and 3,000 people missing—the happening becomes even more intense and compelling as author Leza Lowitz relates the story of one city and one boy and the resilience of e story begins on March 11 when Kai, a half Japanese, half American 17-year-old and his teachers and classmates experience the “jolting of the earth,” and as trained, they evacuate, running for their lives, looking for the highest place, as their city is destroyed. Written powerfully in free verse, the reader feels the fury of nature as the water “churns,” “thrashes,” “surges,” “sweeps,” “charges.” Kai ends up in a shelter having lost his mother, his grandparents, and one of his best friends. His father left years before to return to America.Faced with overwhelming loss and trauma, Kai walks into the ocean but is saved by one of his classmates and convinced to accept the opportunity to go to Fresh York Town on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 where he will spend some time with young adults who lost their parents as teens in the 9/11 attacks. At Ground Zero, Fia tells him, “Bravery means being scared and going forward anyway.”Kai hopes to search his father in NYC but returns to his village to support the young adolescents who lost their families and to rebuild his town. “I wish to be/ like that tree/ deep roots/ making it strong/ keeping it/ standing tall.” And it is to his roots Kai returns and stays—“The quake moved the earth/ ten inches/ on its axis./ I guess/ I shifted/ too.”This novel would serve well as an effective ending to a 9/11 study. Readers should already be aware of the happenings of 9/11 to understand the connection between Kai and Tom, but will comprehend the trauma and loss experienced, and resilience that is required, by anyone who faces adversity.

    It’s called YA, but I found the story compelling. A boy tragically affected by natural disaster grows up with a lot of support from his friends. A powerful notice for struggling youth to search hope and courage to go on.

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    I was deeply moved by Up From the Sea. While the story of tragedy brought me to tears of sadness, the strong story of the human spirit rising up out of tragedy also moved me to tears on a more profound level. This novel is written in attractive verse which makes its notice all the more poignant. I’d recommend this book to readers of all ages, and will most definitely share it with my teenage and pre-teen kids as well. For me personally, it was also a reminder of the importance of helping others, something I tend to forget in my daily busy life. I’m so thankful to Lowitz for writing this book and bringing the fictional hero Kai to life in her eloquent and passionate writing style.

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    I love this book. I cried from beginning to end, touched by the heart-warming story and the attractive writing. Having experienced the huge Tohoku earthquake myself, in Tokyo, this book is close to home. My story is very various from the book's main character, but what we have in common is this: that day changed the course of our lives. Although Up From the Sea is excellent for the intended audience, I recommend it to all age groups. Through Kai's story, this book conveys what happened in Japan so well. Stories have the power to connect us on a heart-level with happenings that are hard to describe in non-fiction reporting. And Lowitz is a gifted story-teller and masterful writer.

    This moving story of Kai's survival of the quake, tsunami and aftermath in Tohoku, Japan reminds us how life can change in an instant. I highly recommend this emotional novel to those who experienced the quake as well as to those who are unfamiliar with the disaster, as the inspiring story of the Tohoku region should not be forgotten.

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    Leza Lowitz has written a most attractive tribute to Tohoku and its residents, one which will latest well beyond any anniversary tributes and one which is a lesson to all about how one can live a life and work toward recovering from unimaginable adversity. The layout of the book is uniquely creative, easy yet profound.

    Up From the Sea review []  2020-1-11 19:23

    What Happens when Everything Is Lost?I became a fan of Leza Lowitz when I first read her brilliant and gripping memoir, Here Comes the Sun a book that described her journey towards meaning and purpose. This time, she offers her readers an enjoyable literary treat in Up from the Sea, a lyrical tale about loss and resurrection, the story of a people ripped apart by the cruel blow of a strong earthquake and an unforgiving tsunami, a story laced with timeless lessons on survival, resilience, and the courage to rise after a devastating fall.Up from the Sea is a riveting and heartbreaking tale inspired by the strong tsunami that hit the coastal regions of Japan in March 2011, leaving untold havoc on its wake. Young Kai was enjoying an ordinary day when the Earthquake that lasted only for few mins took everything from him. His grandmother and mother perished in the tsunami and his father has been away in the US. At 17, he has to face life alone, but the respond he chooses to give to the devastating loss is what gives beauty to this story. Instead of drowning in his sorrows and grief, young Kai decides to do something about the future of his people. A trip to the US will inspire him to connect with others and obtain help in giving back hope to his people. Listed as one of the top 100 Must-Read YA Books in Verse by , Up from the Sea is a story of hope not only for those who lost everything to the tsunami but for the whole of suffering humanity. It is a work of amazing depth, the fruit of long research, and a masterpiece from a writer who feels the cry of humanity very e Poetic, Symbolic Style of the WorkThe writing is rhythmic and lyrical like the stampede of feet on solid earth; the only issue is that the earth creaks, dissolves, opens up and swallows once stood on it. It reads like the gasping sounds of someone caught up with time and racing to deliver a life-or-death message. The short poems are beautiful, portraying the psychological state of the young narrator, capturing strong emotions. Lowitz begins her narrative with the musings of the young boy with a dream, a dream to follow up on Dad’s path, perhaps to go search him, to leave this put of indifference. The young man has lived with indifference until that fateful ordinary day when disaster struck. Listen to the piercing words: “Didn’t love it, / didn’t hate it—/ it was just/ where I lived. / In the back of my mind, / there was always Fresh York, / where Dad lived a life/ I could only imagine— / far from this sleepy town/ with its ponds and pines, / temples and tea, / wooden houses/ falling into each other/ like sailors wobbly/ from too much sake, / days as predictable/ as the tides.” (p.3)Leza’s verses read like reggae, like a dance with the elements. The recollections of the young Kai are vividly poignant and the entire writing captures the fears and hopes of a people devastated by one of the worst catastrophes in history. But it is unbelievable to see how this people create the passage from pain to healing and how they learn to weave a life through the rubble. The author of Up from the Sea underscores strong lessons on the primacy of community in this fresh work. She so gently, and with an unwavering voice, conveys the indisputable notice that after death there is a resurrection, that fledging leaves do sprout from decay. Yes, suffering lived as a community becomes a bonus that unites and inspires creativity. A community that suffers together soon discovers the values of compassion, fraternity, and conviviality. Kai’s story is a very inspirational one, a story that gives hope to readers and reminds them that perseverance pays, that the things we dream of do come true, and that the path toward private growth could wind up through e tone is attractive and it mimics the troubled mind of a young man faced with a difficult challenge ahead of him. The story starts with a serious issue: fear and loss, and uncertainty and the conflict soon progresses from the private struggles of a young man dealing with loss to a quest for communal healing.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    Having thoroughly enjoyed Ian Toll's history of the founding of the U.S. Navy in Six Frigates, I was looking forward to his history of its glory days in the Pacific during WWII. I was not disappointed. Pacific Crucible is a fine acc of the crucial six months between Pearl Harbor and e happenings and much of the material Toll uses to describe them will be familiar to students of the period. What makes Toll's book such a pleasurable read is the quality of his narrative style and his superb judgment in deciding which stuff to contain and how to arrange them. His perceptive prologue and his portraits of the key players are quite amazing as well. The prologue in particular offers a worthwhile explanation of how quickly Japan caught up with the western globe and then was fatally tempted to subdue addition, I found Toll's description of the War of the Coral Sea new and comprehensive. This necessary war is often relegated to a passing mention as the prelude to Midway, but Toll corrects that oversight. His recounting of the role intelligence played in the ultimate conquer of the Japanese also goes well beyond that provided in other books on the subject. Among other things, I had not considered the value of Halsey's raids in the early months of 1942 to the cryptologists - the resulting increase in Japanese radio traffic helped to identify locations, ships, and even ere are a few glitches. The International Date Line is not northeast of Oahu, and the term "shuttle bombing" is misused. I also tired of the numerous references to pilots as "flyboys." After several odd references to "fuel tankers," Toll labels these ships with the more familiar term "fleet oilers." These are very minor complaints, however, and should not deter anyone from acquiring this highly recommended book.

    I started reading this after finishing Atkinson's "The Guns at Latest Light: The Battle in Western Europe, 1944-1945" . I wanted to balance my reading on the European Theater of WWII with the ll is a amazing writer. His style is related to Atkinson's in that in contains additional info that add perspective. For example, a description of the Japanese planes flying so low over Honolulu, that the Americans on the ground saw the pilots faces covered by "their cats eye flying goggles".Toll does a fairly amazing job at keeping the narrative level at 10,000 feet. Modern battle involves men, machines, doctrine, politics and strategy. Toll's story dips into all of these, but never too deeply. Politics and some doctrine are mainly through the focus of President Roosevelt and the Hirohito (the Japanese emperor). Mahan's contribution to the footings of the combatants doctrine and tactic is emphasized. The compare and contrast between American and Japanese warfighting was instructive. I would have appreciated a deep dive into the strengths and weaknesses of the American Navy's pre-war organization. There seemed to be more of an emphasis on the Japanese weaknesses . The thumbnail description of the Japanese A6M Zero was particularly amazing for aircraft technology. Naval vessels and evolving marine technology obtain less attention. Tactic comes later with the rise of Halsey, Spruance, and Nimitz vs. Yamamoto and Nugamo.If I search fault with this book, it's that it does not cover the submarine campaign at all. There are a few scant references to submarine reconnaissance. There are also a few oblique references to the notorious 'Torpedo Problem' that plagued the fleet at the beginning of the war. However, compared to the carrier actions, there is nothing on the beginning of the submarine actions versus the Japanese by boats based out of Australia and Hawaii. In addition, Japanese submarine campaign has never been documented well, at least not in English language publications. Its not documented here is book was very readable. It's a amazing beginner to intermediate introduction to the beginning of the naval battle in the Pacific. This book is part of a trilogy. This is the first book. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series "The Conquering Tide: Battle in the Pacific Islands, 1942-1944". The third book in the series is supposed to be published in ers of this book might search reading books like Toland's "The Rising Sun: The Decline & Fall of the Japanese Empire, 1936-45" likewise interesting. Although, that book is dryer than this one. "Silent Victory: The U.S. Submarine Battle Versus Japan" may be helpful in making up for lack of coverage of the submarine campaign.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    Pacific Crucible, the Battle at Sea 1941-1942 is the first volume of a three-book series by Ian W. Toll. This review covers Pacific Crucible and The Conquering Tide, the second volume in the series. I have not read the third volume, The Fleet at Flood Tide.Ian W. Toll is a gifted writer. He manages to plug in interesting details, gluing the reader to the page. While most of these tidbits are not of immense importance, they are exactly what makes reading history fascinating. Mr. Toll moves a story along at speed, avoiding wording and phrasing leading to boredom. Pacific Crucible and The Conquering Tide are appealing as fact based books and as compelling cific Crucible begins at Pearl Harbor and explains Japanese decision making behind the raid. The author points out how the attack impacted the Japanese command structure, a detail often omitted in other histories. Ian Toll carefully points out that the main targets of Yamamoto’s attack were the American aircraft carriers, none of which were in port. He also describes the main Japanese offensive moves into Southeast Asia, which secured the oil and other military necessities for Japan. All this is done in a quick moving style that leaves the reader anticipating the next e author is even handed in his evaluation of the leaders on both sides. Yamamoto’s attack plan was good, but far from perfect. The American military leaders General Short and Admiral Kimmel were unjustly charged with dereliction of duty in the defense of Pearl Harbor, even though they certainly created mistakes. Admiral King is evaluated well and his faults are disclosed along with his ability to lead the Navy in a tough time. All the leaders Mr. Toll discusses, Japanese and American, are approached with respect as well as an opened eyed e Conquering Tide tells the story of the Pacific Battle after Guadalcanal and info how the Japanese were defeated by American ingenuity, bravery, and industrial power. It is clear that the Japanese were hampered by pre-set conclusions concerning how the battle would be fought and how the Americans would fail in the face of the spiritual superiority of their enemies. The Japanese leadership was stunned by the speed of the American advance across the Pacific, and the power of the Pacific Fleet by the end of 1943. Ian Toll tells us of the a lot of false assumptions created by Japan and the helplessness felt by the population as their leaders became oppressive and outright stupid in their handling of the people during the any author telling any story Ian Toll has his failings. All major wars are covered, most not in deep detail; however, some events, such as the first few voyages of the Wahoo, are reported in extreme detail. In other cases, Mr. Toll fails to adequately discuss stuff that were necessary to the Pacific theater of war. The horrible failure of Admiral King to adopt the convoy system at the outset of war, and its costs, are not well explained and lost to the reader. The story of American torpedo failures is split up and difficult to this old warrior’s opinion, the author is too soft on some of the personalities he reviews. MacArthur is one example. He changed Battle Plan Orange and adopted junk in its place, and his superiors in Washington allowed it. Why? After the outright debacle following Pearl Harbor and the complete destruction of US air power in the Philippines, with consequences at least as poor as Pearl Harbor, he stayed in command. Why? Mr. Toll does complain about MacArthur, but he does not tell us he was incompetent. In fact, he more or less defends MacArthur’s leadership. It is the same with several other leaders. Mr. Toll gives them the benefit of the doubt too often.I enjoyed both books and highly recommend them for anyone interested in Globe Battle II in the Pacific

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    This book is excellent! The book is on all of the history or military reading lists. After the first chapter you can see why. The book will be a classic up there will Samuel Eliot Morison's book on the battle in the Pacific published years ago. The book is incredibly well researched. He writes this in a novel way. It tells the story in an epic way, like a movie. He describes the key players in a method you can search out who they were and thus maybe why they did what they did.He covers the battle in a very detailed way. You will learn info that most history books won't cover because it is to small. One example is how he described the US raid on different islands in the Marshall Islands in January 42, immediately after Pearl Harbor. He will cover things like weather issues, lack of training of pilots, description of firefighting in stricken ships to make a stage right out of a movie. When I was reading about Midway his descriptions created me think of the Charleston Heston 1976 film about e book is beautiful much about the naval carrier battle up through June 42. Things like the Army's plight at Bataan is addressed but not in much detail. The author also doesn't cover the submarine warfare aspect. Overall I think everyone will love this book whether you are the expert or novice on this stuff.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Pacific Crucible: Battle at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 by Ian W. Toll. It covers the early portion of the Pacific Theater in Globe Battle II through the War of Midway from both the Allied and Japanese points of ll begins Pacific Crucible by looking at how the Japanese came to decide to go to Battle versus the United States and taking a look at the states of the Japanese and US Navies. He also looks into the leadership of both navies, particularly Yamamoto, Nimitz, and King. After examining how the attack on Pearl Harbor came about, he explores the Europe-first tactic and how the battle would be fought in the Pacific. From there, he goes through the early chronology of the Pacific War, showing how it was truly a closely run thing in the beginning but also showing how the United States Navy learned from it to become the force that would come to dominate the Pacific by the end of the of the central themes of the book was the hubris and contempt with which both the Japanese and United States Navies held their enemy and how that changed through the early part of the war. The Japanese never really lost their contempt for the Americans and became infected with "Victory Disease" that clouded their judgement and made flaws in their planning. On the other hand, the Americans learned from each conquer at the hands of the Japanese, becoming a stronger and more effective fighting force in the a lifelong radio enthusiast, I love Toll's emphasis on the United States Navy's communications intelligence operation. He not only describes how they came to obtain inside the Japanese Navy's communications but also shows how the Navy's leadership came to not only trust communications intelligence but place a premium on it in planning and decision making. It's beautiful cool that a group of folks who would today be considered geeks or nerds played a considerable role in not only the US win at Midway, but the Allied win in Globe Battle II as a whole (take into acc Ultra and efforts into communications intelligence versus Germany).Pacific Crucible is well written and never falls into the history book trap of getting dry. He does a amazing job of developing the personalities of the leaders and doesn't go into minutiae that would, while delighting the anorak, would turn off the casual reader. Reading the Kindle version, I was very happy to search well placed maps of perfect quality that illustrated war movements (which are frequently hard to visualize in naval battles). This is definitely a five star book and one that I would heartily recommend to anyone interested in how the United States Navy got off of the floor after receiving an almost knock out punch at Pearl Harbor, gathered itself together, and began to victory Globe Battle II in the Pacific.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    I won't go on about this except to say that it's an essay that blends political and military history in a most readable and credible way. It's a fine piece of work with all necessary points clears up incidents that are generally left foggy in most discursive accounts. Okay, Doolittle's B25 raid on Japan was launched early because it had evidently been spotted by a little Japanese vessel that had presumably revealed the task force's position. But is it true? The actor, Rod Steiger, claimed during an interview to have seen nothing more than a fishing vessel being shot to pieces by the huge guns of American cruisers, with women an children running around in a panic. Some accounts describe the encounter as ere may or may not have been families among the squad but the rest of the claims are false. The Japanese vessel was part of a naval cordon around the home islands to provide precisely the radio warning it did. (The warning was lost somehow and is still circulating and bouncing around in the ether.) Cruisers expended vast amounts of ammunition without being able to badly hurt the small vessel, which was tossing around on high seas like a cork. Aircraft managed to finish the job by riddling it with .50 caliber bullets.I described that incident in detail only to illustrate the kind of credible clarity this book e author doesn't like Admiral King, back there in Washington, a doggedly old-school advisor. He likes Nimitz, a cool and pleasant person who got along with people. In skill and foresight, Nimitz and Yamamoto were equals. He's not a huge fan of MacArthur, either, but gives His Highness a pass when caught with his pants down at Clark Field, hours after the Pearl Harbor attack, Mac's airplanes all lined up and ready to be bombed and destroyed. The general went into isolation for some 25 hours after this humiliation and never mentioned it in any speeches ral Sea is treated fairly. The book ends with the War of Midway, satisfying the narrative requirement that the conclusion of any book written by the winners must end with a victory. And Midway was indeed an unequivocal American victory, due is part -- in huge part -- to decoding nerds working in a dark, cramped e book is highy recommended.

    I am a serious student of military history for over 50 years, and wanted to obtain a amazing grasp of the Pacific War. This book is truly excellent, but with a couple of problems. The chronology is mixed up with back and forth stories of prior and subsequent events. Certainly it's OK to recount concurrent happenings in the various zones of this large theater of war, but not amazing to break up happenings with things said years later by the actors themselves and others, especially other e other criticism (and I still recommend this book) is that the author has no military experience and somehow acquired a powerful bias versus armies. To summarize, he says Japanese Troops bad, Japanese Navy good. American Troops bad, American Navy good. Troops Air Corps bad. He gives amazing biographies of the top US admirals, including their days at Annapolis, but no background on any of the American generals, such as Marshall and MacArthur. I'm currently reading his second book, "The Conquering Tide" and it also is excellent, but he continues his biases.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    Best battle narrative I have ever read. I read history, particularly military history, and this is absolutely the best. This is a page turner of a narrative history of the Pacific Naval Battle in WWII from Pearl Harbor to the War of Midway. The author is a spellbinding narrator who compellingly gives an overall view of the theater, the players, the strategy, and the feel of the battles. He does not obtain lost in the weeds, though he gives a amazing description of which weeds are important. This book goes from what was necessary about Alfred Thayer Mahan's 1890s book (The Influence of Seapower Upon History) to why those concepts were replaced (air power). It gives a brief narrative of the necessary personalities in the Pacific Theater (Admirals Yamamoto, King, Nimitz, Halsey, Spruance). It describes the overall tactic from Pearl Harbor to Midway (stopping the Japanese advance, avoiding major air power loss, breaking the Japanese code, destroying the Japanese Naval air power). And it describes the experience of the major naval wars from the perspective of the men who participated. I literally could not place this book down until I had finished it. I am now moving on to the author's second volume.

    Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 review [Book]  2018-3-4 18:0

    I am not much of a student of history, more of a casual reader of things that interest me and that often contains historical events. WW2 has captured my interest lately, so I purchased this book based on the high reviews it received. I've never cared much for the naval side of warfare even though I spent 11yrs in the Navy. But, after being exposed to the Pacific theater through HBO's series and reading the books associated with it, this book seemed like a amazing method to gain a better understanding of the huge picture.When it came in the mail, it was slated to create it to the top of the "to read" stack in a few months. But, once I opened it I couldn't place it down. The book starts with Pearl Harbor and draws you in right away. He does a terrific job throughout the book of providing an overview of the wars and mixing in the first hand accounts in a method that is not disjointed and keeps the narrative moving. I often obtain frustrated by authors that stop the action to give you a multi-page intro and biography of a newly introduced hero in a method that completely kills the momentum. He is one of the few that didn't allow me down in that regard. I blasted right through this book, and have already ordered the next in the series. I think he does a unbelievable job of bringing in the necessary players, and giving you just enough to shape your knowledge sufficient for a amazing understanding of the story. There probably isn't enough detail for the hard-core history folks but for someone like me, it was perfect. I can't recommend it highly enough!

    Ian W Toll has done it again. It has been years since I read his first book, "Six Frigates" so when I saw that he was releasing another book on naval history, I was more than e "Pacific Crucible" starts out with a brilliant acc of the Mahan tactics,which helps establish his point of how a sailor from the 1850's would be more accustomed to the life aboard a ship in the 1600's than in the 1900's. This is continued by the detailed descriptions of the political situations that developed the conflict on both fronts. The, Toll delves into a graphic and violent acc of the day that has lived in infamy for over 70 years.I was enlightened at how Chruchill convinced Roosevelt that a Europe first tactic was more necessary than committing to a Pacific campaign, and the descriptions of how the Japanese military converted their society for battle brought their ultimate e naval wars were done in an informative and exciting fashion. For those that claim that history is dull, I recommend that they read a Toll one complaint about the book is that the ending felt somewhat rushed. Toll concludes the War of Midway, and then after a several pages briefly proving Admiral Yamamoto's early predictions of how battle with the United States would end, the book ends itself. I was expecting more regarding the rest of the war, but since the book was primarily about the major naval actions of the Pacific, it was understandable, seeing how the subtitle of the book states it only accounts from 1941-1942.Overall, a five star rating barely does this magnificent book justice. I certainly hope that Toll is working on another project.

I would hate to have this be my first experience with installing a screen protector. Methinks Amazon needs to change their manufacturer for this product. It does not come with a static dust cloth nor dust lifters (thank goodness I had some from Tech Armor from other installs).Take my tip and wait until Tech Armor comes out with one for the Kindle Oasis and save yourself some time and frustration.

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-11-27 18:2

    First allow me say that this is not my first rodeo.. I've been setting up devices for well over 20 years. But this one is on the verge of being returned.When trying to register my device, my Amazon password wasn't accepted. I tried re-setting my password. It wouldn't reset. I finally got into the device, I think, by using my original password 'cause by now I cannot be sure what my password actually I'm in. The first screens are ads for audible books which I don't want, at least right now. The font on the screen was so little that I had to use two pairs of reading glasses plus a flashlight to even attempt to read. I got past those screens, finally by saying that i would accept the free trial. Then I obtain to a screen with a book cover. By this point, I'm online searching for directions. The instructions are to swipe the screen to unblock Kindle. That sent me back to the offer to have free audible books. So again I had to accept. Again, I was directed to swipe the screen to unblock the Kindle. Again back to audible free offer. I cannot remember how a lot of times this happened. By using the button on the top of the screen several times I managed to finally reach the home page.I wanted to enlarge the font. The directions said to click on the Aa at the top of the screen. It doesn't exist. By clicking on different icons, I stumbled upon a page with options which included "standard" and "large" for print size. But I really did wish to choose my own font. I went to another page online line asking how to enlarge font on a Kindle. It too suggested clicking on Aa at the top of my screen and, as I've said, that doesn't exist. But apparently the fresh method to enlarge font is to pinch as I would on an iphone... that works only when I'm actually reading a book In other words, it's not permanent. Luckily, I have a kindle acc which I previously used on my iPad. so I found an old book, opened it, and indeed pinching out and in on the screen enlarges the font. Which leaves me with my original issue of changing the font. I really required help. On a screen with incredibly little font size I found a telephone support number. It's disconnected.I finally figured out that if pinching in and pinching out on a page works only if a book is open, then maybe, just maybe I would search the Aa graphic at the top of the screen.... Guess what!! After a few hits and misses, it finally appeared; So if you wish to change the font, you have to have a book open. Now I already had a few books in my library to I could figure that out (as I said, this isn't my first rodeo), but what if someone doesn't yet have a library? How is that not good soul going to figure out all these things?i have learned to use some icons at the top; e.g. Settings. I've changed some settings and they haven't reverted back. However, I have changed the Brightness and Warmth settings several times but they change every time I go to the home page - i.e., they don't hold. I actually watched the brightness setting go up and down while I was looking at the I'm trying to figure out how to turn it off. Again, I went online and asked. The instruction is to depress the button on the bottom of my device. There is no button on the bottom of my device. There is a button on the TOP which is the same button I learned (with no instruction) to use to obtain back to a book cover and then swipe to Unblock my kindle and obtain to the homepage. Holding the button on TOP I did turn off the device but when I turned it back on, I had to re-customize my font choice. I rather wanted to started a amazing novel today but after three hours learning how to navigate the device, I'm exhausted.I'm sure I will figure this out. And I hope I will be able to read a book. But I'm not holding my breath. If I'm not using it more comfortably in a week, this one goes back and I'll test the Nook from Barnes and re: (I might note that I added more and re-submitted my review but my extra comments were not saved) To continue. A few mins after I submitted my original review, I got a call from a representative from Amazon offering to support me navigate my Kindle. Nice. Except I lost my Internet connection at the sane tune,So now I'm back online and I wish to read my book on my Kindle. Since my Internet had gone down, when I opened the Kindle I got a notice indicating a issue connecting to the Internet. I thought this odd because I had turned the Kindle off before the Internet connection was lost. Or at least I thought I had. Anyway, by pressing Back, I did obtain to my homepage and using the drop down menu, I accessed my Library and I clicked on my fresh book. A page came up indicating that here was animation in this novel and if my device could handle them; there was more to read and as I tried to figure out how to do that, the title page of the book came up. But I wanted to finish reading the notes on the books so I clicked on Back. that took me to the home page. I created another effort to read the notes, unsuccessfully, so I gave up and tried to obtain to my book. The drop down menu no longer gives me the Library option so I can't obtain to my book. (added later: this one's on me - the library is on the screen by this point thus no longer accessible via the drop down menu. My recent book was prominently displayed)The representative had sent me a link to contact Amazon for Help. Which I have done. I chose the call back option, The note said I would keep a call within 2 mins or less. That was 20-30 mins ago. Guess I'll test the Chat option. I went through a series of options for the chat and got to one which requested a call. I chose that one and I got a call very quickly. I learned that shutting down the Kindle is not quite as easy as I thought. First press the power button on top; then choose from three options ... cancel, restart, screen off (or something like that) then keep down the power button on top again until it does what was requested. (One of the reps pointed out that top/bottom on the Kindle are not relevant terms since one can turn the device either way. I point out that since the power outlet connection is on one end and that is where I had the power cord plugged in, I considered that the bottom and the button he was referring to is on the top.)So - now I obtain to begin my book.And I was impressed with Amazon help. I've yet to be impressed by the Kindle though.And this time I've copied my review so if my extra comment don't present up, I can paste it back in... LoL

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-11-27 18:2

    I love Kindles in general. This is only my 2nd, but I've been reading kindle books on my phone using the Kindle application for years. I had the Kindle Voyager and loved it, but I could tell it was time for a fresh one.Old tech on the cord - I know there have been several comments about this and I agree and and I don't. See cord length e fresh one is wider, which is awkward for e Amazon case does not let you to prop the Kindle up to read - The case I had on my Voyager was not an Amazon case and it allowed me to do this. I miss that.I did buy the bundle and the cord that came with it was 1.5 feet - waaaay too short! I was able to use my old Kindle cord for the fresh one, so I didn't have to buy another cord. I would hope they eventually go to USB-C cords, but for now the old format works for me.I also want the bundle allowed you to purchase the Kindle w/o ads, but test as I might, I couldn't figure out how to do it.Other than those things, I love the buttons on the same side and still able to swipe.I really like the amber light result in the evenings. I don't feel like I'm straining my eyes any overall the Kindle is a amazing eReader and I love not having to buy more book cases when I trying to downsize my house. :)

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-11-27 18:2

    I love using this Kindle and if it were not for the outrageous price, I would give it five stars. But I have used it now for a few months and love it. Turning pages is easy, the screen is high quality, the ability to adjust the color temperature of the display makes it a joy to use, and the leather cover is oustanding. I know some have complained about the use of a micro-usb connector for charging, but it bothers me not. My old kindle used the same connector so it was simple for me to transition to this higher quality kindle. Amazon automatically switched my acc to this one so the transition was created that much easier, but I am still using my previous kindle at times because it is smaller and easier to take on verious outings. You can transfer books to both kindles when you buy them without any problems. Its all ere are only two negatives. First, this kindle is huge and will not fit into any pocket you might have except a huge outer coat with unusually huge pockets. (That problem is why I take my smaller kindle with me on most trips.) The second is the battery, which does not latest as long as that on my kindle Voyage, which in my view was and remains an outstanding kindle reader. What makes this one better is the larger screen, the adjustable backlight color and the buttons. Whether that is worth the additional cash is problematic, but for me it was and I am satisfied with the Oasis.

    This $30 off bundle is actually a $10 coupon. By now everyone has at least 5 of those 1 Amp micro-USB power supplies sitting around their house. The one that ships with this bundle feels hollow. The normally overpriced cover is $50, the 32 GB Kindle is 279.99. 279 + 50 - 319.97 = $10.

It's disconnected.I finally figured out that if pinching in and pinching out on a page works only if a book is open, then maybe, just maybe I would search the Aa graphic at the top of the screen.... Guess what!! After a few hits and misses, it finally appeared; So if you wish to change the font, you have to have a book open. Now I already had a few books in my library to I could figure that out (as I said, this isn't my first rodeo), but what if someone doesn't yet have a library? How is that not good soul going to figure out all these things?i have learned to use some icons at the top; e.g. Settings. I've changed some settings and they haven't reverted back. However, I have changed the Brightness and Warmth settings several times but they change every time I go to the home page - i.e., they don't hold. I actually watched the brightness setting go up and down while I was looking at the I'm trying to figure out how to turn it off. Again, I went online and asked. The instruction is to depress the button on the bottom of my device. There is no button on the bottom of my device. There is a button on the TOP which is the same button I learned (with no instruction) to use to obtain back to a book cover and then swipe to Unblock my kindle and obtain to the homepage. Holding the button on TOP I did turn off the device but when I turned it back on, I had to re-customize my font choice. I rather wanted to started a amazing novel today but after three hours learning how to navigate the device, I'm exhausted.I'm sure I will figure this out. And I hope I will be able to read a book. But I'm not holding my breath. If I'm not using it more comfortably in a week, this one goes back and I'll test the Nook from Barnes and re: (I might note that I added more and re-submitted my review but my extra comments were not saved) To continue. A few mins after I submitted my original review, I got a call from a representative from Amazon offering to support me navigate my Kindle. Nice. Except I lost my Internet connection at the sane tune,So now I'm back online and I wish to read my book on my Kindle. Since my Internet had gone down, when I opened the Kindle I got a notice indicating a issue connecting to the Internet. I thought this odd because I had turned the Kindle off before the Internet connection was lost. Or at least I thought I had. Anyway, by pressing Back, I did obtain to my homepage and using the drop down menu, I accessed my Library and I clicked on my fresh book. A page came up indicating that here was animation in this novel and if my device could handle them; there was more to read and as I tried to figure out how to do that, the title page of the book came up. But I wanted to finish reading the notes on the books so I clicked on Back. that took me to the home page. I created another effort to read the notes, unsuccessfully, so I gave up and tried to obtain to my book. The drop down menu no longer gives me the Library option so I can't obtain to my book. (added later: this one's on me - the library is on the screen by this point thus no longer accessible via the drop down menu. My recent book was prominently displayed)The representative had sent me a link to contact Amazon for Help. Which I have done. I chose the call back option, The note said I would keep a call within 2 mins or less. That was 20-30 mins ago. Guess I'll test the Chat option. I went through a series of options for the chat and got to one which requested a call. I chose that one and I got a call very quickly. I learned that shutting down the Kindle is not quite as easy as I thought. First press the power button on top; then choose from three options ... cancel, restart, screen off (or something like that) then keep down the power button on top again until it does what was requested. (One of the reps pointed out that top/bottom on the Kindle are not relevant terms since one can turn the device either way. I point out that since the power outlet connection is on one end and that is where I had the power cord plugged in, I considered that the bottom and the button he was referring to is on the top.)So - now I obtain to begin my book.And I was impressed with Amazon help. I've yet to be impressed by the Kindle though.And this time I've copied my review so if my extra comment don't present up, I can paste it back in... LoL

    I love Kindles in general. This is only my 2nd, but I've been reading kindle books on my phone using the Kindle application for years. I had the Kindle Voyager and loved it, but I could tell it was time for a fresh one.Old tech on the cord - I know there have been several comments about this and I agree and and I don't. See cord length e fresh one is wider, which is awkward for e Amazon case does not let you to prop the Kindle up to read - The case I had on my Voyager was not an Amazon case and it allowed me to do this. I miss that.I did buy the bundle and the cord that came with it was 1.5 feet - waaaay too short! I was able to use my old Kindle cord for the fresh one, so I didn't have to buy another cord. I would hope they eventually go to USB-C cords, but for now the old format works for me.I also want the bundle allowed you to purchase the Kindle w/o ads, but test as I might, I couldn't figure out how to do it.Other than those things, I love the buttons on the same side and still able to swipe.I really like the amber light result in the evenings. I don't feel like I'm straining my eyes any overall the Kindle is a amazing eReader and I love not having to buy more book cases when I trying to downsize my house. :)

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Fabric Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-11-28 18:2

    I love using this Kindle and if it were not for the outrageous price, I would give it five stars. But I have used it now for a few months and love it. Turning pages is easy, the screen is high quality, the ability to adjust the color temperature of the display makes it a joy to use, and the leather cover is oustanding. I know some have complained about the use of a micro-usb connector for charging, but it bothers me not. My old kindle used the same connector so it was simple for me to transition to this higher quality kindle. Amazon automatically switched my acc to this one so the transition was created that much easier, but I am still using my previous kindle at times because it is smaller and easier to take on verious outings. You can transfer books to both kindles when you buy them without any problems. Its all ere are only two negatives. First, this kindle is huge and will not fit into any pocket you might have except a huge outer coat with unusually huge pockets. (That problem is why I take my smaller kindle with me on most trips.) The second is the battery, which does not latest as long as that on my kindle Voyage, which in my view was and remains an outstanding kindle reader. What makes this one better is the larger screen, the adjustable backlight color and the buttons. Whether that is worth the additional cash is problematic, but for me it was and I am satisfied with the Oasis.

    This $30 off bundle is actually a $10 coupon. By now everyone has at least 5 of those 1 Amp micro-USB power supplies sitting around their house. The one that ships with this bundle feels hollow. The normally overpriced cover is $50, the 32 GB Kindle is 279.99. 279 + 50 - 319.97 = $10.

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Premium Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-12-1 18:2

    Pros:__________• It’s small, provides basically two easy physical controls, and a sleek premium aluminum design that makes it attractive to look at without showing off.• The screens warm temperature display works like a charm. You can either adjust it manually in the setting section or just set it to automatically active with sunrise and sunset. I just place in an automatic timer and overall found it a pleasure to use this feature at night. The warm result doesn’t bring in any eye irritation to me, at night or day, which a computer screen does.• Surprisingly for me, I found the need to apply the warm temperature display on all day. The reason why is because the result creates the illusion of flipping through old pages in a book. I’m always a physical book person, so this feature brings in the comfort of that feeling. It makes it look like true paper! Still, I only use the cool display when it’s super bright out, but other than that the warm display is excellent regardless of day or night.• You have a lot of intensity levels of cool brightness to ranges of the warm temperature result that can match your need. From mild yellow to full-on amber color, Amazon finally place in the right software for this display because I’m getting a clear display and no glare regardless of any ambient lighting.• The E-ink display is very quick and efficient. I mean you’re just reading so the processing power isn’t that much as I didn’t message any ghosting while reading.• This is one of the only times that I’m glad for a bezel border because I can always put my hand at the excellent spot on the device, right underneath the page buttons.• The page buttons themselves provide amazing feedback when I press them. They’re not loud but it does give you that small click, which I love. You can use the touch screen to turn pages, but I felt the buttons provide a better experience.• Regardless if you're left or right-handed, the device is ambidextrous! I flip the screen to my left the display adapts to it, just as if I flipped it to the right. The experience is the same for all.• I took it out in a clear sunny day and the anti-glare matte display screen provided excellent viewing angles even when the sun [email protected]#$%!&ing at it the most.• The touch screen is responsive as I like that it has a soft-touch texture on it. It creates a pleasurable experience and kills the creations of my fingerprint.• IPX8 waterproof means it can be washed off and taken almost anywhere. I didn’t submerge it in a pool of water but an IPX8 will stand almost all forms of water problems (just don’t use it under the water.)• Bluetooth is super-fast. Connecting my Airpods took less than 20 seconds, and the feedback is spot on.• Battery life is in no method going to be an issue. From my one battery test, I got around 21 hours of use! The average person will probably read 30-40 mins a day with this. Having Wi-Fi on will eat a lot more but, in the end, the math doesn’t lie.• The software of highlighting text, placing bookmarks, getting additional information about your book, and adding notes is very straight forward and doesn’t require digging around the system to use them. For me, one feature I use a lot is tapping a word and obtain the dictionary pulled up for the word (you need Wi-Fi).• You can input MOBI, PDF, and TXT files on this device (I’ll go into more info later on).• One cool feature I like is that if you use your kindle email address, you can upload files to your Oasis. I found this 10x quicker as I used this format when transferring my Steve Jobs autobiography book from my IPad to the Oasis (via email).• At the time pf my review, I found 10 various fonts, 14 sizes, and numerous alignment choices. I can save numerous themes and have the option to switch back and forth if I wanted to. I found this feature helpful if more than one person uses this device.• The books themselves are beautiful cheap to buy on Amazon. It’s even better if you’re a Prime member because you can “borrow” books from the Prime Reading catalog. There is also Amazon First Reads that I like but overall, if you obtain this device, Amazon is the method to go in getting your books/magazines.• Unlike a smartphone, I know that if you treat your Oasis right, you’ll obtain a beautiful amazing shelve life with ns and Oks:__________• Just like Amazon’s previous models, no USB-C connector. Micro-USB brings slow for charging and importing files. With Micro-USB, I’m getting around 3 hours, 0-100%, for a complete charge.• No headphone jack! No idea why this isn’t built-in because they even have the room for it on the device.• Getting used in finding your brightness and temperature setting will take some time. Amazon gives a lot of options on the display, as I spent a decent amount of time just figuring out which type of lighting I wanted.• The keyboard is a touchscreen keyboard. So expect a slow typing rate. Sadly I can’t apply the tracing result that a lot of androids and google phones provide on their keyboards.• The aluminum design does create this slippery to hold, and it’s able to slide off my lap beautiful easily.• Also, with aluminum, it takes in the heat or the cold a lot quicker if you leave it outdoors or in a hot car.• Without a decent cover, it feels like I’m holding a piece of metal than the feeling of holding a book.• Can’t connect to 5GhZ Wi-Fi network.• Even if this Oasis looks the same as its previous models, I found out that you can’t really use the same covers. My colleague has the older model and problem we found is that the magnet covers of the latest case model don’t stick with the fresh Oasis. Almost the same size and weight, you expect that older covers to work, but nope. I’ll have to pay for a fresh case cover.• At the time of my review, I obtain ads on the lock screen of the device. You can remove them, but you have to pay around $20 to create it ad-free. I found this ridiculous given what you’re already paying for it.• As I mentioned before, you can upload MOBI, PDF, and TXT files on this device. This is cool, but when I place in a easy pdf file (composed of a little story) the formatting gets lost in the process. The paragraphs were mashed together, there was a delay when you wanted to turn to the next page, and overall it looks like a huge mess. Now, this could be just a one-time event, but I have to assume any third party software that goes into the Oasis will face some problems (Importing audiobooks did work flawlessly though).• No microSD. That means the storage you have is what you’re going to have forever. This is buzz slay because I know for only 8 GB (Minus 1 GB for the initial software) you’re going to only have maybe 20 audiobooks go have on storage. It seems more appropriate, given the shelf life of this device, to just invest in the 32 GB since there is no method to make batter the 8 GB.• It’s small, but not little enough to fit your pocket. Be careful where you place it because I feel like I can bend this without any problem if I wanted to.• The browser feature, I believe, is very experimental. Because of the display, a lot of webpages are shown up broken or just unreadable. Obliviously this isn’t for web browsing, but it’s a feature they provide that I just ignore.• It’s almost the same in software and design as its previous model. With the price, I was expecting Amazon to a least redesign it into something various (maybe less in the bezels). It’s still a attractive design but, given the identical looks as its previous model, as the only main difference is the warm color effect. I know this is what Amazon is advertising but they had 2 years to redesign it. I guess the saying goes “if it ain't broke, don't fix it.”Bottom Line:__________As not having a Kindle before this, I would say that I’m having a pleasant time reading with this. I always prefer a “real” book to read, but having thousands of books at my fingertips, it does reduce that need. To be honest, it’s kind of scary to see the chance that children can use this more than a physical book. It reminds me of a stage from the 1960’s movie “The Time Machine,” where George goes into to future to search out that all the books he touches turn into a fine powder because no one has used them in centuries.But ignoring that thought, there really isn’t any tournament for devices like these, and Amazon does know how to build them. It's sleek, fast, and most importantly, the screen is superb in reading. The warm light result does create me feel that I’m still reading an old book, while the battery life is holding its te, if anyone has the previous model of the Oasis, don’t bother buying this. It’s the same thing, except without the warm display and some little software upgrades. For fresh people, I recommend that you invest in the 32 GB because 8 GB is not nearly enough (given that you can’t even install a MicroSD to it). There are some smaller problems with the design of the device that create me feel like I’m holding a machine instead of a book, but for those who wish to take a leap in digital reading, this is the method to go.Overall: An above-average device for book readers of all ages, and a little step forward in the extinction of physical books.Hope I was a support to ,Honest Reviewer.

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Premium Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-12-1 18:2

    First allow me say that this is not my first rodeo.. I've been setting up devices for well over 20 years. But this one is on the verge of being returned.When trying to register my device, my Amazon password wasn't accepted. I tried re-setting my password. It wouldn't reset. I finally got into the device, I think, by using my original password 'cause by now I cannot be sure what my password actually I'm in. The first screens are ads for audible books which I don't want, at least right now. The font on the screen was so little that I had to use two pairs of reading glasses plus a flashlight to even attempt to read. I got past those screens, finally by saying that i would accept the free trial. Then I obtain to a screen with a book cover. By this point, I'm online searching for directions. The instructions are to swipe the screen to unblock Kindle. That sent me back to the offer to have free audible books. So again I had to accept. Again, I was directed to swipe the screen to unblock the Kindle. Again back to audible free offer. I cannot remember how a lot of times this happened. By using the button on the top of the screen several times I managed to finally reach the home page.I wanted to enlarge the font. The directions said to click on the Aa at the top of the screen. It doesn't exist. By clicking on different icons, I stumbled upon a page with options which included "standard" and "large" for print size. But I really did wish to choose my own font. I went to another page online line asking how to enlarge font on a Kindle. It too suggested clicking on Aa at the top of my screen and, as I've said, that doesn't exist. But apparently the fresh method to enlarge font is to pinch as I would on an iphone... that works only when I'm actually reading a book In other words, it's not permanent. Luckily, I have a kindle acc which I previously used on my iPad. so I found an old book, opened it, and indeed pinching out and in on the screen enlarges the font. Which leaves me with my original issue of changing the font. I really required help. On a screen with incredibly little font size I found a telephone support number.

    All-new Kindle Oasis Essentials Bundle including Kindle Oasis (Graphite, Special Offers), Amazon Premium Leather Cover, and Power Adapter review [Book]  2019-12-1 18:2

    More than a review this is a question: why should I buy an Oasis when it keeps getting so a lot of negative reviews?I’ve had a few readers over the years but I now really need them badly because my eyes are giving in. I’ve been checking the reviews for the Oasis because my iPad Kindle books chew up too much battery and it’s not simple to keep an iPad for hours. I had hoped that over the years the Oasis would be improved but going by the reviews, and I only read one and two star reviews (five star reviews are predictable). none of the early issues have been fixed and going by a latest setup review if anything it has all gotten why should I place out so much cash for an Oasis? Also, where is that care for the client that created Amazon great? Is it time to sell their stock?

    LEGO Creator 3in1 Deep Sea Creatures 31088 Make a Shark, Squid, Angler Fish, and Crab with this Sea Animal Toy Building Kit (230 Pieces) review []  2020-1-16 22:4

    Amazing set for the price, fun to build and play with. This is the first 4 in 1 set that I've seen, as you can go online and download instructions to build a whale, as well.

    As always with the Creator 3-in-1, an impressive set of sea creatures. Despite the main build being the shark, a lot of of the other designs haven't been done multiple times in LEGO and are wonderfully crafted. (there's even a 4th build instructions on the LEGO website)Though it is an unusual choice to contain the second little monster and treasure to be built from this Creations set at the same time as the main build, there's still a amazing dozens of parts that could be useful for other imaginative designs!

    Love love this set! My six year old was able to build it himself with minimal help. He was anxious to play it so skipped a step or two. 😉 Love that you can build it into 3 various sets: shark/crab, Squid , Anglerfish/Angelfish. There is a forth one you can obtain instructions online for a whale/small squid. Largest plus is the ability to bend the body of larger fish for play.

    The build was really fun! Both the shark and crab both look amazing and have a ton of posability. These look amazing on display in my room. I think it’s beautiful amazing as a parts package too since you obtain some ball-joint pieces and a handful of dark blue pieces. It’s amazing for building your own creatures.

    I am an avid Lego girl. I have a lot of a lot of sets. I like this one, and bought one for my friend’s son as well. I love that you can build multiple items. My only complaint is that my set came with several pieces missing (her son’s didn’t have any missing thankfully). I’ve never had a set with missing pieces. That said, Lego is amazing and has a section on their website where you can order the missing parts for free. I ordered mine and they came within a week. Set fixed, issue solved. I took a star off for inconvenience.

    This is technically a 4 in 1. Such a fun set to go with my sea theme. Very durable if you have children (or a girlfriend in my case lol) that likes to play with them afterwards. I was able to create a lobster with the remaining red pieces.

    This is a amazing set at a amazing price. You can create three various models in this one set. It’s excellent for my ocean loving child. I especially love the teeth on the shark.

    Just on a price-per-part basis, this set is grossly under-priced. It's a fresh set, why is it already getting 25% discounts? 12 bucks for 230 pieces?! Sure, no included figures, but it has four amazing ere are some really interesting building techniques too, like how the eyes are built in the shark's head. And it's even a amazing parts pack, with lots of useful dark blue pieces and ball joints. The builds are bigger than they appear on the box. The shark is satisfyingly $20 and under set for 2019, tied with Benny's Zone Squad.

    Simple Mills Almond Flour Cracker Variety Pack:, (1) Fine Ground Sea Salt, (1) Farmhouse Cheddar, (1) Rosemary & Sea Salt, 4.25 Ounce (Pack of 3) review []  2019-12-17 18:11

    I've been a Easy Mills fan for about a year. I was diagnosed with celiac disease nearly 8 years ago and have been Paleo for about 4 years. I don't typically buy SAD-ified Paleo substitute foods, but I create an exception with their pizza crust for my twice monthly pizzas (the crust is crispy, I still can't believe it!). I also occasionally purchase their muffin and bread mixes. Since I've tried all their products before, I just had to test their fresh crackers...in the name of research, of course. Yeah... soon as the box arrived from Amazon with the crackers, I tore into them. Because research is time sensitive, you know. It was love at first taste. These crackers are crunchy and flavorful like I couldn't believe. These crackers are unbelievable on their own, but they would also create a amazing car for dip or an addition to soups. I got a three package on Saturday. It's Tuesday and I already ate two boxes, and that was with a amazing deal of self restraint. I'm going to test to save the third box for chicken parm (minus the parm since I'm Paleo); I'll bet some of these crackers ground up in the meal processor would create a unbelievable breading for the chicken. But chicken parm isn't on my food plan this week, so I'm not sure if the latest box is going to latest that long. I might eat those and then order more. I have a feeling I just found a fresh addiction and will have to create an exception to the Paleo-substitute-foods-are-rare-in-my-household rule. Well done, Easy Mills!

    I've tried a lot of various gluten free crackers, and these are the closest thing you're ever going to obtain to a regular cracker without adding a bunch of gluten replacement junk. I've tried the Rosemary and the plain Sea Salt, both of which are beautiful good. The rosemary crackers are by far the best, but they are extremely addictive so I've only been getting them for unique occasions. The pack says the box has 4 servings, but I've only managed to obtain about 2. The crackers themselves are crispy and flavorful. They have more of a wheat cracker like texture than rice crackers, but aren't as hard as ancient grain/seed crackers like Mary's Gone Crackers. Some of the crackers in the box look a small burnt and are a small dry, but they still taste e sea salt flavor is just ok. They aren't as flavorful as the rosemary, but I crumbled some up in a bowl of soup and they added a nice crunch with a kind of buttery flavor. The only reason I even have the plain sea salt crackers is because Amazon has messed up my order twice now. I ordered the rosemary crackers and received sea salt, then initiated a return with a replacement and received the sea salt flavor again. I checked my order and I clearly ordered the rosemary crackers, so now I give up. I don't know what I have to do to obtain the correct flavor, but I'm not interested in receiving the wrong flavor for a 3rd time so I'll just hold the sea salt flavor for anytime I just wish a plain e largest reason for giving this 3 stars instead of 5 though is the cost. Yeah, the crackers are beautiful amazing and the ingredients list is cleaner than most crackers (with the exception of a few brands of rice crackers that don't use starches like tapioca). I just can't justify the cost though. If the pack was bigger, maybe. I do understand that organic meal created with nutrient dense ingredients is going to cost more. I do a lot of organic shopping due to a chronic health condition and am prepared to pay more for everything I eat, but the price of all the products from this brand is just unreal (that goes for the pricing I've seen at Amazon, grocery stores, health meal stores, and basically everywhere I've seen them). I've seen the ingredients list and there's really nothing all that difficult to produce, it's just using better quality ingredients. For the size of the box and even with the higher quality ingredients I would still only expect to pay a small more than half of the current retail price of these crackers (which would still be beautiful expensive crackers when you consider how little the servings are).

    So these are delicious crackers!!! If I was just doing low carb diet, these would be perfect. Unfortunately, though, I am doing keto and these do not fit in the keto diet as they include tapioca starch and cassava flour! I will eat what I ordered, because I am not wasteful, but unfortunately won't be able to order again.

    I think I ate half of the box when I opened it for the first time. Hugely addictive and satisfying, these are by far the best grain-free crackers I have found. I've been eating paleo for years, and now and then you just wish something easy and crunchy. I search these to be a cross between a saltine and a wheat thin in taste and texture. Really excellent.

    FIrst time I've had crackers in almost a month. I think I groaned or at least moaned when I crunched into my first one. Thank you, God, for crackers I can eat on my slow-carb e only thing was that there were approx 1/2 cup of broken pieces at the bottom of the bag. Shipping box padding appeared to be more than adequate to protect these babies. Maybe being loose inside the bag is a bit too much for these delicate wonders.Of course I'm eating every latest crumb! I poured them over cottage cheese like toppings on ice cream (mmm, ice cream).

    I recently had to change my meal intake to no dairy, no grain, no sugar, only certain kind of oils, and no alcohol.... my FIRST thought was OH NO... what could I munch on.... But it was worth it... the first few months I saw steady progress from the years of chemo's result on my immune system [all worth it- I am happy to say] and then stumbled on these crackers... I craved salt [that was allowed by the way] and these were great... they have the right oils, no gluten, an acceptable flour... and SO DELICIOUS.. I now munch on them with our homemade soup... and after one of my hamburger/salsa roll up with coconut wraps or butter lettuce.... they are excellent... test them and enjoy.

    OK one of the few indulgences I let myself on Paleo is a bit of chese here and there. No crackers for me, no matter how much I miss them. I have not found a cracker like the crispy italian flour crisps I uesed to eat by the box. UNTIL I tried Easy Mills Almond Flour Crackers. I adore them. So delicious and they have true crispiness to them. True Crunch! They changed my ability to feel comfortable on Paleo for my next (second year). Thank you Easy Mills!
