1.0 out of 5 stars Worse then the book, July 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twilight (Amazon Instant Video)
I've read the book twice and each time thinking that it really wasn't very good but it far outshines the movie
version.

The movie has much that makes it worse then the book, including but not limited to poor acting and a badly
restructured story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good counter to Pro-gun control arguments, May 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have never been a fan of Glenn Beck or of his previous works but I have to say that most of this book is a
quite reasonable and solid response to many of the Pro-gun control arguments

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameless attempt to profit from a tragedy, August 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is nothing but a Shameless attempt to profit from this tragedy and the author(I use
that term loosely) should be ashamed of himself.

This book(another term I'm using loosely here) is full of errors in spelling and grammar.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes funny but I disagree with the premise., August 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The writing was okay and at times it was very funny but I disagree with the premise
of the title or subject of the book. i believe that We are a strong nation because
we are allowed to be different. We are all Americans even though we don't share political
or religious beliefs. There is no one true path to be a good American despite what
conservatives or liberals say.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good hank green brony song, August 17, 2012
Hank green has down a brony song in which he sings why he doesn't have a favorite pony. It is
a good song and the acoustic version is a little better than the normal version. I Think that
all hank green fans should buy this song.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid Book that should be read by undecided voters, August 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"We need to know the man's core beliefs to figure out that agenda. "
D'Souza, Dinesh Obama's America

Dinesh D'Souza shows himself to be a good writer and he does believe in what he
is writing. He tends to stick to unemotional phrasing and logical arguments. The
book has a good amount of sources and notes and it seems well researched.

His writings include the contention that that Obama has anti-colonial ideology,
that Obama's background is still a mystery to many people, That he had radical
mentors as he was growing up, etc. in other words many of the same things that
other authors have written of.
So the real question becomes does this book have anything that makes it rise
above the other books of this type? Ordinary Americans cannot buy every book
that is published and with each new book people have to make economic decisions
of which books to buy if they can afford any at all.
My answer is that this book is not a `must' read for everyone but it is still
a book the undecided voter should read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mormonphobia at its worst, August 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Politically I am a moderate and I consider myself an evangelical Christian
And I find this book disgusting.

This Book has noting going for it.

I consider the formatting on the kindle fire to be bad because instead
Of just putting numbers behind a sourced statement they underline the
Sentence and highlight the text in blue. The writing is subparas it is
Filled with emotionalism and purple prose.

The authors hatred of Mormonism is clear to see in this book with
statements such as...

((`How about his ethics? To many, Romney presents a handsome, clean-scrubbed, All-American face. How could he be a fibber, a charlatan, a con-man? How could he dissemble so robotically, so constantly?
The answers seem to be buried somewhere deep within the irrationalist DNA, polytheistic tenets and lie-filled history of the mind-controlling enterprise into which the GOP frontrunner and his forebears were born - and perhaps also in the manipulative, exemplary sex predators whom Romney and all good Mormons must regard as holy prophets.

'Republican Delegates must Dump Romney to Defeat Obama (Kindle
'Locations 482-505). Let's Get Real Publishing, LLC. Kindle Edition.))

((We'll see how the coital libertinism of a 19th Century sect (and historic sex cult) could enable Romney to rationalize a career's worth of cover for our ugly national habits of child sacrifice: abortion and pedophilia.[ 32] And, we'll hear how Mitt's marriage doubletalk echoes, so eerily, lies told two centuries ago by his Holy Prophet Joseph Smith, the frisky, philandering founder of his faith.

Bethel, Sara and David (2012-08-07). DUMP ROMinee: Why Tampa's
Republican Delegates must Dump Romney to Defeat Obama (Kindle

I could go on an on with more quotes from this book but When all is said and done this is
nothing more than Badly written anti-Mormon and Anti-Romney Screed. This book is worthless
and should be Avoided at all costs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hyper violent But still a good Book, August 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There is no way to describe this book without mentioning that it is hyper-violent
and that most people will find it distasteful. It is around 616 pages long and
sometimes the writing seems bit clunky. The clunkiness might be due to the
fact that the is a translation
I have read this novel several times and one of the reasons why I liked it is
because there are some likable characters in it, These Characters that are meant
to be the `good guys.' There are also Characters that are the `bad guys.' I don't
know how a real group would react in a situation in which they are told to kill
people that they have known for years but the reactions in the story work for
the story.
The back of the book refers to it as `a Lord of the flies' for the 21 century.
Let me scoff for a minute. This book does not come very close to the genius
of William Golding. I don't think that this book is anything more than a violent
but enjoyable novel

5.0 out of 5 stars The Type of history book that I love, August 12, 2012
This is the type of history I really enjoy. We are seeing the events through the eyes of the people
involved and not through the gloss of future historians. When a historians writes of events they
know for the most part what happened but because the people whose writings are collected in this book
don't know what is going to happen I feel that we get a truer sense of what happened and what they
actually thought at the time . Any work of this nature will leave some things out and the editors
seem to be focused more on the northern aspects of the war revolution then the southern ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable but I didn't like the Format of Narrative History, August 12, 2012
This book is a narrative of what happened in the twin towers on 9/11
the authors created this narrative after numerous interviews emails and
reviews of thousands of pages of oral histories. The narrative tries to follow
the events chronological so it helps that in the first pages of the book we get
a list of the people we will be following. This book was a national book award
finalist.
It is undoubtedly an emotional book but I have never been a fan of the History
books that try to create a narrative of events as they happened. I feel that
there will always be a speculative element to any such book even with the
large amount of meticulous research that goes into the book. I would much
rather read the firsthand accounts then to read an author's interpretation
of those accounts.
I have read this book twice the first time I enjoyed it despite my reservations
the second time I read it had left me cold. I could not get into it that second
time and I believe that the reason was because of my feeling of `narrative'
history. For those that are interested in 9/11 you should read this book once
but I can't really give it a strong recommendation.
