I like to share my thoughts on everything!

Homage to Catalonia


The author of ‘Homage to Catalonia’ did not grasp the wider context and provided a partial, partisan versionUnleashed on 17 July 1936 by a military coup against the democratically elected government of the Second Republic, the Spanish civil war was a rehearsal for the second world war. The British, French and American governments stood aside…

Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging


by Sebastian Junger

I enjoyed the book immensely. The writing style flowed smoothly. It was a quick read. But it is one that is worth reading more then once. I really didn’t want to put Read the rest of this entry

Didn’t like the 2nd one that much. So, why did I read the 3rd one? Only because they were bundled together in one audio recording. Seriously, that’s all. This is a very predictable book, which I suppose you’re going to argue is expected because it is a young fiction but I just have to disagree. Just because it written for a younger audience doesn’t mean it can’t have surprises! It got to the point that there was one owl that I was hoping would just get off’d so I wouldn’t have to read about it any more. Yeah, that annoying. >.< I am not reading any more of this series. It pains me to know that there is a bunches more of them.
