A concise biography of the inventor for school-age children which provides useful basic information about his life & influence. Doesn't mention Bell's controversial opinions on deaf sign language.

I did not find it believable that a girl between 10-12 years old in the 1930s would think/act as she does. Also many of the characters were stereotypes.

This is an absorbing detailed book which reminds us of the human cost of Communist ideology. North Korea may currently be the most extreme manifestation of what Communism leads to but all communist societies were cruel and nightmarish places to live in to one degree or another.

A fun crossword puzzle book in which the clues are all about Jewish culture, religion, history, and individuals etc. Every page also has amusing, pithy, and/or profound sayings which adds to the enjoyment of doing the puzzles. Has the solutions at the back of the book.

A very personal,compelling, and detailed account of the Patty Hearst kidnapping in 1974 from the point-of-view of her fiance at the time who was beaten by the kidnappers. It is a historical document, too, in that it records so many aspects of what happened.

Though brief, it's a very interesting book about these Shakers of Kentucky - their beliefs, their lifestyles, their work ethic,their accomplishments, and also their problems and failures.

Didn't like the book at all, there's no genuine emotions only "politically correct" ones.

Although a well done Audiobook abridgement, nicely read by Michael Beck, the story itself is filled with cardboard stereotyped characters, unsubstantiated partisan political opinions, and bad dialogue in many chapters masquerading as (poor) imitations of Hemingway. And the "happily ever after" ending was over-the-top and not believable at all.

Hardcover book. Nice story.

The cover of the book quotes the Anniston Star newspaper's review that the book is "honest and deeply moving" and this, in a nutshell, is my opinion, too.

This book is an academic study of the subject of the Library in Alexandria and also has some information about other ancient libraries. The audience for this book is those who specialize in the study of ancient history.
