The Magemother series is a middle grade fantasy written by Austin J. Bailey. The gorgeous cover artwork is eyecatching, and the premise, well, the premise of misfit girl being summoned to another globe and uncovering her real past could be either totally lame or really work well. The first book was (and at the time of this publication still is) free, so I figured, what did I have to lose? The Mage and the MagpieThis book was on Amazon and had high reviews. Honestly, I usually pick up freebies with high reviews so I can give an honest negative review. A lot of people seem to think that if they like a book, it deserves five stars. Five stars, imo, should be reserved for the most excellent, memorable, standout books. Not every single book you metimes, though, books deserve the praise. I was surprised to search that I actually enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed, the find was enjoyable, and since we're in an unfamiliar globe there are lots of surprises. Some things that I think were supposed to be "reveals" were obvious to me, but others were not.I haven't quite figured out how I feel about the magic in this series. I think magic is neutral and you use it for amazing or bad, like you would a car, and it seems like the mages and apprentices possess their particular magic. Like a gift. I don't think that the wind mage's apprentice could learn the magic of the metal mage. In this world, magic is either something you have or something you don't. If you have it, but are not a mage or mage apprentice, I'm not sure what you do. That's never addressed in the series.I liked this book so much that I immediately looked the author up and signed up to keep updates from him. I received Magemother 1.5 as a "thank you."4.5 starsThe Empty ThroneThis is a novella, not a full length novel. It was offered as a "thank you" bonus for signing up to keep updates from the is a very short and fast read, but it is an necessary link in the story. If you don't read this, there will be things you scratch your head at in later books trying to figure out if missed something.While I didn't search this short story as compelling as the larger series narrative, I still thought it was necessary and highlighted the vulnerable side of Tabitha. It also makes the reader think about how they would answer if they had to go through Tabitha's test.4 starsThe Paradise TwinBook 2 largely focuses on finding the hidden mages and on Hugo's struggle with Molad. And there's a dragon. Dragon's are always fun, right?In Hugo you really obtain that Jekyll and Hyde feel. His struggle is real, and it's simple to empathize with him. The find for the hidden mages was not as compelling, though, and almost became tedious at times. I had guessed part of Chantra's location, Unda's hiding put was obvious to me, but Lignumis' was well this book that I started feeling like the series was very related to the Farworld series by J. Scott Savage.* A lot of important things happened in this book, but overall is wasn't as compelling as the others in the series. It moved things along, but I didn't feel anyone particularly developed as a character.3 starsThe Bridge to NowhereThis book was very interesting - and not entirely happy. There were a couple moments where I was actually surprised at something truly bad/sad happenings. Realism! I like books that have satisfied endings, but when absolutely everything works out perfectly as planned, it is eye-roll worthy. You see more development in Brinley and Hugo, others keep their own, and there are a couple flat characters. Some "twists" in the book I saw coming, but the intended audience would largely search them e Hugo/Molad struggle continued, and while it certainly felt true at times, there was one point very near the end in a major moment (trying for no spoilers!) where the reaction seemed a small extreme. But I understand why the author wrote it that ere is a meeting with the gods of their world, near the end of the book, and it rather felt like a large aside. I got it - and they had showed up in other books - but the direction they promise really hadn't been there the whole series, so it didn't feel quite genuine. They also appear to be modeled after the Mormon view of God - being God and his wife who live in another world, but sometimes interact with us. The moral underpinnings in what they say are close to what I believe as a Christian, but the framework is wrong. Not everyone will agree, but I thought I'd mention it for those who wish to have conversations with their kids about that aspect of the e largest thing for me is one unanswered question that is actually asked in the series - what about the bell Brinley's father heard? That is never explained. I feel that is an oversight, or maybe it was too complicated to work into the book without a large expansion ... but in that case the question should have been removed from the book. Its one thing for a reader to have questions of their own, it's another for an author to pose a question within the series that never gets answered.Overall, the book gets 4 rial ThoughtsAs mentioned in my review of book 1, I'm not sold on how magic works in this world. To be sure, it is a well crafted story, but something seems a tad off, but I can't place my finger on it. Maybe its the lack of complete explanation, I don't know.*To expand on my Farworld comment from book 2's review. The Farworld and Magemother series aren't actually that similar. Just the whole looking for mages (who control the elements) that are hidden was bringing me powerful vibes of the looking for the hidden elementals (basically the elements themselves). Also, the cross-world transfer of a main character. But the journeys are drastically different, as are the endings. The Magemother series actually has a more satisfying ending, but as a series I think I prefer Farworld. If you like one of the series, though, I'm beautiful sure you'll like the other.And, to reiterate from my review of book 3, I don't like unanswered questions posed within the story itself (If I missed this someone please point it out to me!). There is also the Mormon-esque deity thing going on that doesn't completely fit with the globe that was largest complaint for the series as a whole is the age of the our main cast. They're around 12 years old! Everything they do just seems better suited for someone at least an extra 5 years older. It's a small overdone in literature today to have THE FATE OF THE WORLD resting on pre-to-early teens.I was grateful that while there is friendship (and tips of particular people probably liking each other) romance is not really in the book. Like I said, it's hinted around, but it's not the star. THANK YOU! That is so nauseously overdone, and these books present you can have a amazing story without the romance. Especially when we're talking this ge and the Magpie: 4.5 starsThe Empty Throne: 4 starsThe Paradise Twin: 3 starsThe Bridge to Nowhere: 4 starsMagemother series average: 4 starsI received complimentary ebooks of books 2 & 3 in exchange for my honest opinion.
I enjoyed this series. I read a lot of kindle sci fi, a lot of have 'mech suits' of some type, but this one has a fresh take on them. Not always 100% predictable, a amazing thing. Slightly disappointed in a couple things, but I can't be more specific without spoiling. Overall a amazing read and I will definitely read more by this author.
This is a whimsical set of stories full of magic and enough mystery that you wish to see what will happen next. Each of the three stories characters are special with the exception of the lantern maker Machin. Master Machin uses magic to transform these young people's lives and trade their sorrows for joy and hope while ultimately sending them on the path for a much brighter is set was given to me by the publisher and NetGalley for a fair and honest review.

I am normally not a fan of dystopian stories but how can I not love them when written by Alexa Riley?! Rebels has not one but three stories.His Rebel is the story of Brad and Sylvia, Sylvia is the rebel and is working to take down the Elites. Brad is the leader of the Elites and starts to really question what he's doing when he meets Sylvia.Her Rebel is the story of Owen and Minnie, Owen is the rebel leader and Minnie is a scholarship nurse working in the Elite's hospital Owen sees her and knows she must be cret Rebel is the final story about Ryan and Naomi. Ryan is a journalist and trying to obtain to the truth about his mate Brad and Naomi (also known as the Librarian to the rebels) has been secretly helping the rebels. Ryan calls Naomi to question her since she was the latest person to see Brad, he falls for her the instant he hears her l three stories were amazing!I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
De Montaigne, in his chateau turret (his wife occupied the other tower), felt complete freedom in writing whatever he thought about anything. He was not restrained by religion, famous ideas on decency, or anything much. Hence most of his writing is as refreshing as it may have been the day it was written. It would be trite to call him a thoroughly modern man but you feel that as he is "speaking" to you over more than four and a half centuries. Yet he would have small time for much of what is covered by the word "modern" these days. It has been one of my better over the latest few months.
Purchased this to authenticate quotes, rather than to read. But the find feature is utterly useless, and the lack of translation info mean trying to search ANY single line or quote is only 40% successful most times. For reading, the product is OK, but Aristotle is hardly the most latest philosopher, and vast amounts of his 'scientific thoughts' are utterly wrong.
This Kindle edition of Plato includes (as far as I can tell) all of the definitely genuine dialogues of Plato, as well as some of the spurious (meaning probably fake) dialogues. The edition also does not seem to include any of Plato's letters (most of which are considered spurious). I have read through most of the dialogues (up to the "late works") and I have enjoyed them very much, and would recommend them to anyone interested. Most of the translations are by Benjamin Jowett, and a lot of of the dialogues contain introductions and/or essays by him. I found the translations to be excellent, and cannot imagine their having been any better. My basic complaint with this edition is the huge number of misspellings and errors in punctuation, which apparently resulted in the process of converting the works to a digital format. These errors become especially noticeable in the later dialogues, and while they never become intolerable, they are certainly an major oversight on the part of the publisher.Overall, this edition has amazing translations and all the genuine dialogues, but a lot of typos.P.S. If, while reading, you feel like Parmenides is the most difficult text you've ever encountered, don't give up! Just hold pushing through, getting out of it as much as you can-- I don't think anyone really understands it!
All 31 works for 0.99 cents is a large steal. I thank the translator for offering his work at such a low price. The 31 works has been a very long and challenging read, but with amazing reward in knowledge. The texts are not always simple to understand the meaninv of them. I usually will read one dialogue and then look it up on wikipedia afterwards.
I have fun these Lang color books and I suppose it is convenient to have them in one put but I found it hard to navigate through this compilation. It is confusing. of course it may simply be me! In any case I will continue to use the individual book files instead and and have fun them that way.
Always love the folktales, legends, and myth since a child, at that time the best method to see the world. The stories and plots today used by writers and films producter as plots or the mixing of plots for their stories --> ageless tales talking about us!
I haven't read the book yet, but just so people know this is not a box set of all the separate books. It is one MASSIVE book of all 5 books with very little font. I didn't realize this when I bought it but it isn't that huge of a just a small surprising and a small inconvenient because it's very bulky I can't fit it in my purse to bring with me anywhere.
The first story or novel was the best with each subsequent story becoming more difficult to read or enjoy. The reason is that as the novels progress more and more time is spent explaining what is event or why it is with less time spent focusing on the characters and their interactions. The latest two books really seemed forced as if the author was employing a bulldozer to reach the conclusion. The short chapters, usually between one and two pages may have helped the author move through the plot but it did nothing to support the flow of the story. All in all I would probably rate the prophecy of shadows a 4.5 with each chapter following getting a lower rating. An overall three is probably a amazing average.
For 50 years the invaders have been in control of earth. The invaders are old and dying from too much inbreeding. They intend to do some genetic modification with humans to survive. It seems the invaders have less brain power than humans, but they use it more efficiently. They've developed these superweapons which turn out to be based upon a life form from their home world. Using these animals they've developed shields and weapons, but humans can't figure it out. Then circumstances cause a survivor to obtain his hands on an alien rifle which gets transferred to the zone based survivors, and suddenly the tables begin shifting. There's a huge rebellion based upon human development and use of the clues this one survivor gets his hands upon. Along the method we meet different individuals, some amazing some bad. Who is amazing and who is poor is left a question through much of the book. We also slay off a few people that we don't wish to die, and a few seem to survive no matter what. There are some intriguing plot shifts, things don't always turn out as expected, overall an entertaining story. The science is sketchy, but the theories are kept consistent with each other so no disruptive locations in the story where the character does something that just can't be done. I recommend this book.
It lives up to the hype. A masterpiece worth owning. Few graphic novels are capable of achieving what Maus does, especially at the time this was written. It was a risk to place it into this format, but I think that's what has given it staying power. A must-read. I really want this was used in history classes, but I also think it was enjoyable to read. I experienced a broad range of emotions throughout the volumes and cannot impress enough how perfect it is.
A craftily written saga that sucks you in, plays with your emotions, throwing doubts and fears at you as you feel yourself being completely immersed in the stories and characters. Search joy, relief, and excitement as you weave through every page unable to place it down; or if you read it like me, with every swipe on my iPhone, I held my breath in anticipation for the next smile-inducing, heartwarming scenes, or tear-jerkers. It is a beautifully written novel, unlike anything I’ve read in the past. It starts out simple, like a teen novel, but it grows and evolves with every book, the characters and plot intertwine and you’re deep in it without noticing. It’s entertaining with cheesy lines and funny “Inception” like scenarios that seem to work. I love the surprising twists and turns and the unexpected ending, a refreshing alternative to typical “Happy” endings. It tugged at my heart, broke it, mended it; I don’t even remember the latest time I sobbed so hard while reading a book. The careful incorporation of other cultures, languages, and the various interpretation of heaven and earth, amazing vs. evil, added to the credibility of the book. Ultimately, after all is said and done, the only method I can truly tell it’s a really amazing book is when the latest page is read and it’s time to close it, I am left with a full heart and a smile on my face. I highly recommend this saga! Please read it and join me in the globe of Evan, Gemma, Ginevra, Simon, and Drake.
I really, really wanted to like this book, I even bought the entire series. I thought the idea of the story was original and well thought out, but I just couldn’t obtain in to it. Correction, as soon as I would obtain into the story, it would go back to internal thoughts between the two main characters. I only got halfway through the 1st book before had to call it quits. I just had the hardest time with the method the story was written.
This is the excellent computer book. It covers both beginner and intermediate subjects with enough detail to really teach you what's going on, but not so much you obtain lost in theory. It is a simple book to read from beginning to end, or use as a reference and obtain just the information you need. If you are going to be using FreeBSD this is the book to have ank you Mr Lehey!
The two books that I use most frequently when administering my FreeBSD server, are this one by Lehey and UNIX System Administration Handbook by Nemeth et al. Lehey's book is simple to understand, and covers most instances where FreeBSD varies from other Unix chief complaint with the book (and hence only 4 stars), is that Lehey seems to be a bit conflicted as to whether he wants his book to be a guide or a reference book. I have only read the 4th edition, and I suspect some of this issue is due to hauling along portions of the book that used to be important which really are not anymore. For example, when it comes to explaining the installation process, the book does not add much value to the online guide, "FreeBSD Handbook" available on the FreeBSD website. In fact, due to the ever evolving nature of software, the "FreeBSD Handbook" is often more up to date than Lehey's book. In particular, Lehey's book still explains how to install XFree86, while the current ver of the OS used XOrg.Lehey does excel in giving a more thorough overview of most other aspects of FreeBSD that do not change quite as quickly. He also does a decent job of pointing the reader to other resources for further information.Lehey made the Vinum Volume Manager (which I admittedly know nothing about, and I skipped his chapter on it), so it is no surprise that the chapter on it is in the top third biggest chapters in his advice, if you are just trying out FreeBSD, you can probably obtain by with the "FreeBSD Handbook" online. If you plan on maintaining a FreeBSD machine, this book is definitely handy to have on the bookshelf.
As a long time user of Microsoft and having gotten well used to its method of working the idea of considering Unix as an option for networking/desktop purposes looks less amazing after an initial familiarization period. Where are all the Wizards that create life easier in Microsoft, being the most obvious is book by Greg Lehey is very helpful as a tutorial to hold going. It points out the differences between the Microsoft method of naming files and the difference in the command line conventions that a DOS user, for example, would be familiar with. The rest of the book is comprehensive enough by the look of it. With any info remaining, resolvable with a small bit of perseverance ( not that I am much of a power user, as yet). The problem of which type of desktop is discussed, with some pointers on how to modify their operation. How to accommodate files specific to Windows and Linux, experience with Microsoft Windows at the NT, 2000PRO and XP-PRO levels has been good. But the reason for looking at FreeBSD Unix was to obtain around having to hold up with the large differences in the method each fresh deployment of a Microsoft system requires. My expectation is that having learned the method of working with Unix the once. It will not be too much various as the OS is updated.Except for very specific instances, users fresh to FreeBSD, would do well to consider running the on a decent machine, and not some old redundant machine. This will allow them test out much more of what is available on the distribution packages, and with much speedier results. In my case the simplest option was to a hard drive rack and a couple of trays, which allows me - at this scene - to experiment with FreeBSD Unix and easily swap back to Windows, or Linux, etc without having the put coming down with odds and ends of e Complete FreeBSD should suit those getting off the ground with its clear and amicable delivery.
Truly great! One of my favourites which has been on constant rotation on my CD player since it arrived. If you have enjoyed Joshua's previous albums this is sure not to disappoint. A unbelievable storyteller with a divine voice. (If only his more latest album were available on CD, not just US-download!) A pity that no booklet comes with the CD but then again his lyrics are so simple to understand.
This recording's value is largely that of a historical document. The melody is far more embryonic than Muddy's glorious days in Chicago. That said, it's not your typical Smithsonian field recording. A lot of those are primitive beyond belief, interesting anthropologically more than musically. By contrast these tag the emergence of a recognizably promising player. If hearing items like that floats your boat - if you wish the "before" to complement the glorious "after" of an artist's career - go for this CD.
When I was growing up I was aware of all the excitement surrounding Bernstein's Mahler, but could not afford to top-tier recordings so went with what I could afford. Now that are so attractive, I decided to see what the original fuss was all about. My goodness, what I missed! Eventually I will be getting keep of the DG set for comparison, but I must say I sat spellbound through this first go-round and can't imagine that his later thoughts will have that much more impact than these. For instance, I had never warmed to Mahler's 6th despite listening to numerous highly- rated versions. Now I search myself suddenly in love with it after hearing Bernstein. I thought Solti owned the 5th and 7th; now I'm in the midst of an affair and don't know how to break the news to Sir George. By all means give these a hearing. There was amazing reason for all the excitement, and an added delight in hearing the excitement of a amazing conductor coming into his own.
When I told a mate that I was working on getting to know the Mahler symphonies, she said, "Boy - - You must really be depressed!." Yes, Mahler's items does have that result on some people; it is very intense and deeply personal. But there cannot be any question that it is amazing melody that speaks to the depths of the soul. Bernstein is one of the few conductors with the breadth and depth to take on this large and intimidating repertoire and to be able to create it work. Right now I'm still stuck on the 2nd ("Resurrection") symphony; scared by it at times, but powerfully moved by it too. These are perfect recordings of superb performances. Not at all your simple listening background music, but - - as Charles Ives once replied when someone asked him why his melody was so hard to listen to - - "why should the composer do all the work?" This is one corpus of melody that will hold you occupied for a long time.
These are dramatic performances, but everything I know about Mahler suggests that this is how he would have himself conducted these very dramatic symphonies. The sound is remarkably good, given the age of these recordings, full and strong. Of course if Mahler is not your cup of tea, or of much stronger drink, then you may search these performances overwrought. But Mahler is a very overwrought composer, a driven man, a perfectionist at the cost of an early death. His huge tuttis are huge, but his slow movements are often ravishingly beautiful. I would not recommend this music, much less these performances, to anyone whose emotional stability was fragile. But if you like Mahler, and if you are not contemplating doing yourself any harm, then I certainly recommend these strong and idiomatic performances.
Unbelievable guide/dictionary/encyclopedia to Tolkien's works. Absolutely important while reading Lord of the Rings. Not only is this book amazing for referencing, it's also fun just browsing through and reading everything. Long explanations are given for most events, locations, and people. It's really nice to have lengthy info which keeps things very informative. I highly recommend this over Robert Foster's The Complete Tutorial to Middle-earth.
The book is excellent, and a superb reference; for the content alone I would happily have given it 4-5 stars. However, they really messed up when putting it into Kindle format. Why oh why did they not to format this as a dictionary????? It would have been 1000 times more useful if they had only done this, and would have easily been worth a couple of additional bucks, if that what it took to cover the cost. Then when I was reading any Tolkien work, one could set temporarily as the default dictionary, and look up anything and everything that I desired. As it is, the contents will allow you skip to a given letter, but that is it. From there, you must flip through it page by page to search the entry you seek. Incredibly frustrating, and completely unnecessary. What a shame!
This book covers FreeBSD 5 but we're almost up to 10 now and I don't see a revised ver of this book ally want I did b/c I'd it.If you haven't tried FreeBSD, do 's a amazing method to really learn how a Computer or Server should work and doesn't hide the computing info like a Windows or Mac Computer does.
I've read a few FreeBSD books and coming from a background in *nix and *nix-type flavors, I've been allow down before. Other books cover maybe a total of 20 commands and nothing you don't know the first day (and don't even have as much info as the man pages), but this one is different.I wasn't on a *BSD system for a couple of years of mainly using Linux, and I wanted a refresher and for the book to cover fresh and familiar topics. Useful things, rather than just listing the famous used on it and not the things you need to know about them, is book covers more than the others in regards to commands, common tasks, installs, configurations and so on. It actually covers the TOPIC (Being the FreeBSD OS). Not a fast and dirty run down of a few commands and a lot of fluff like other books. This gives you what you need to know, be it you have some experience or are doesn't skip around like the other books and only maybe a total of one decent chapter on the subject of the book (FreeBSD), it covers a lot of chapters worth. I can't stand when a book only has some info about the title, as much as it does about some irrelevant third party (and only talks about it as briefly at that).I don't wish or need info about anything other than what the book is about--and finally, a FreeBSD book that covers FreeBSD. I was impressed. It may not cover everything, but it sure gets close and is very professional, well structured and ween this book, man pages and online (and up to date) documentation, it's unlikely you will need (much) more info about how to install, configure and use FreeBSD, it's tools and programs and work in it everyday and have the info you need. Trust me, this book is far better than the others (see my review on "Absolute BSD: The Ultimate Tutorial to FreeBSD" to see what I mean).

If you are a teacher, you might consider teaching "Persepolis" alongside Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale," a novel about an America taken over by religious fundamentalists. Atwood's novel appears on a lot of high school reading lists, but it is often quite difficult for American students to imagine how a theocracy might come to power and what life might be like under such a government."Persepolis" illustrates both of these things. Marjane Satrapi must conceal her body beneath shapeless clothing, cannot easily mingle with the opposite sex, takes care not to say things that might cause her to run afoul of the religious censors, and endures the persecution and even death of those close to her who defy the regime. Like the Handmaid, she rebels through small things: forbidden cosmetics, whispered conversations, a secret love affair. So much that occurs in the autobiographical "Persepolis" has its match in "The Handmaid's Tale." (Atwood herself visited Afghanistan before the Soviet invasion.) A reading of "Persepolis" (I refer to the complete "Persepolis," which moves from Satrapi's childhood to her young adulthood) helps deepen a reading of Atwood's dystopian novel.
The story itself, an autobiography in a very artistic form, is very fascinating and deep. The story follows this girl's journey in discovering herself and life, the ways of the world. The perspective of the journey is only intensified by the fact she was being raised in middle of revolutions and wars. The terrifying aspect of this was watching as she was convinced, re-convinced then “corrected” by adults on how to think, and e artwork itself was an awesome representation of her progression and self discovery in such dark times and horrible experiences. The artwork in time, especially nearing the end started to lighten up, however the constant overall tone is darkness, a twisted perception I believe is likely the effect of living and growing up with war, oppression and death a constant e art style is completely special to me, someone who reads lots of comics, manga and watches a lot of forms of cinema. This dark style really drives the emotional, political, religious and human aspects of this person life experiences deep into my mind.
This book is great. It was really interesting. I learned a lot of magic. It is a really unique book because it gives detailed explanation about the performance, which is not something every book has. This book really inspired me to perform magic. It's awesome what can be done with a deck of cards, or beautiful much anything else. Really creative ideas for beginner magicians, with tricks that can be performed at any time mostly without preparation. Waiting for another one to come out!
This is an epic tale full of characters you will most likely miss when they meet their end. Those that survive leaving you wanting more. The horror is quiet most of the novel, but brutal when it happens. I miss The Casket family and I only finished the book a few mins ago. If I had the time and money, the cast and crew...I would devote my days to making this a mini series.
This is perhaps the most researched book ever on Josef Mengele. Very thorough, step-by-step description of Mengele's post-war activities and multiple attempts to bring him to justice. I was not entirely suprised that Rolf Mengele decided not to openly denounce his father, unlike several other Nazi leaders' children. The pressure of his family must have been tremendous. Still, it would be interesting to see if his views have changed now in 2012. It would be a pity to see yet another Nazi offspring to continue on the path of Gudrun Burwitz.

I am thirty one and my ninety five year old grandfather asked me to be executor of his will...I wanted to present him he could trust me so I started to research what my responsibilities will be when the time arises...My first was this book, first of all because of other product reviews I read but secondly because it was a cheaper option compared to other related texts. I really didn't need to look no further as far as informational executors tutorials books go...it answered all my questions...even gives me hard copies of forms that I should have completed before death and after death of your loved one.
To review, or not to review, that is the question:Whether it's ethical in the mind to discussThe complete works of Shakespear on AmazonOr to admit that I haven't finished an entire playAnd yet Shakespear's masterpiece on KindleAt .99 cents was a I couldn't refuseLamenting for a moment my college textWhich I could stick my fist throughAfter basement boxes got floodedShame I felt in the 90'sOnly scratching the surfaceOf that twelve courseWhen I saw theYet in my wildest dreamsI imagine reciting long sonnetsAnd retelling those heroic ballotsThat were written for everymanAnd spoken in a languageThat the queen and peasantBoth mused and reflectedCould such a text helpYou be more aware ofThe plight and patterns ofHuman nature and everyday actsWhich take put in societiesWith class division, politicsAnd the sensitivities ofhuman relationships; male and femaleOld, young, sick and vitalCould still have uncanny resonanceWhile reading of a hand held deviceInstead of feeling the plightOf a text that keeps the Chiropractor in businessOr the publishers who comeUp with a fresh editionThat has stood the testOf time spanning five centuriesWith over six thousand pagesNeatly organized in categoriesComedies, tragedies andHistories for all you e sin however in this editionIs the rampant spelling errorsAnd unoriginal line breaksThat were not what theAuthor Shakespeare intendedTo thine own text be trueAnd the delivery be inA fashion that isAccessible to the masses.
I am a high school English teacher looking at the various versions of classics texts available for Kindle (fire), so my review will not be for the play itself, but rather for the eBook--readability, layout, price, and other is is an perfect complete Shakespeare, and at $1.99, a steal. It contains all of Shakespeare's plays and poetry. There are links to each play, and from the first page of each play, links to each act and scene. When you go to the poetry section, there are links to each poem. The layout on the page is very clean. The lines are properly laid out in poetic form and there are locations between each speaker. Unfortunately, there are no line numbers. There is no annotation in this version, but hey, it was two dollars!If you are looking for low and readability, this is easily the best complete Shakespeare!
Marilyn Horne's career is beyond the reach of the five star standard. I have had the pleasure of hearing her sing in person a lot of times at the Lyric in Chicago as well as in recital. These discs bring a flood of memories of the size, beauty, range, and absolute glory of her voice."Souvenir of a Golden Era" was always my favorite of her recordings; as a consequence I was so happy to hear that it would be re-released. When I learned that it would be available in this set as well, how could I resist. I actually still have all these discs in vinyl, but could not resist the opportunity to this unbelievable compilation and overview of her e most glorious evening I have ever spent in the opera house was the night I heard "Semiramide" at the Lyric. Chicago was in the grip of a fierce blizzard. However, I waited outside the scene door for both Marilyn and Joan to emerge to collect their autographs on my program. Miss Horne and Dame Joan were astounded to see this snow covered person standing and waiting and were graciously signed my program. Marilyn left the "e" off of her signature, remarking, "I've forgotten the final 'e.'" She tacked it on with a giggle and a smile. I shall never forget the experience and, of course, cherish that program to this I listen to these discs, my memories of her latest recital here in Chicago come flooding back as she remarked that she would be enlisting in Medicare soon and noted "the voice isn't what it used to be." How we all wished it would never diminish. Thank you Decca/London for this rare gift.
These are not simple poems to read both in terms of topic matter and in difficult photos to grasp. A lot of poems need several thoughtful readings to fully understand the concepts she is expressing. As "confessional" poems they often with the failures that Anne Sexton saw as characteristic of her experience, especially the mental illness that plagued her. But the powerful, complex, and often unexpected imagery along with the development of a mythology of her own, create these poems worth reading and re-reading.
Maya Angelou, in the Complete Poetry (which is simply a collection of her separately published books of poems), is confident and self-possessed. She explores her femininity, her spirituality, and African American history usually with allegories that relate in more ways than one to her private experiences.
This is the 1st time I've read anything written by Deborah Adams & Kimber Perkins; they have done an perfect job at writing a amazing set of books; I can’t wait to read more of their e story lines caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.I loved the characters.I received a copy of this box set via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
