    I Found This Book To Be Fascinating

    World's In Collision

    The Origin Of Species

    The great Charles Darwin's classic. It is good to read, especially given that nineteenth century scholarship is not renowned for the quality of writing involved. CD too can be a bit convoluted from time to time, but in the main he writes simply, clearly and to the point. For any...

    I Really Enjoyed...

    The World Without Us by Alan Wiesman. I found it to be really interesting, as a matter of fact it's now one of my favorite books. Unlike my usual way of reading, I read this sporadically and gave myself time to ruminate over what I'd read, and over all it was seriously...

    "the Bell Jar" S.plath

       "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath. I was blown away by her style of writing, beautiful, amazing  voice of a poet  narrating a story in proze. Be careful though, this is an authobiographical novel about Plath's struggle with suicidal depression, and it will...
