5.0 out of 5 stars Twinkle Toes, June 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I needed the bottom half of my feet protected from friction when I wear mule-like sandals and clogs. These half socks do the job. They feel good and stay put. I have purchased them in neutral, pink and brown stripe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Station Eleven or How Modern Life Flu Away, October 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazingly, Emily St. John Mandel, the author of this wise sumptuous 'end of the world as we know it' novel is young, home schooled and a writing workshop virgin. She says she learned to write by reading. You can tell her "writing teachers" wrote great books. Perhaps Mandel's background allowed her to give a freshness to the dark new age perspective.

In this alternative contemporary world most people die within days of contracting a virulent, highly contagious type of swine flu. Only 1% of humans survive world wide. All infrastructures collapse. No governments, no public or business services, no electricity, car and airplane fuel goes bad in a few years. The world is illuminated only by the sun and stars again. The novel moves back and forth in time from Day 1 Year 1 and moves around the earth, but most of the action happens around the Great Lakes area.

Mandel also creates complex characters interacting within two themes. The first is thespian. Arthur is a actor who dies of a heart attach on-stage a week before the catastrophe. Arthur is connected to many of the characters. And there is The Symphony which evolves from a military orchestra into a traveling classical music and Shakespearean theater group. The second major theme is celebrating the modern infrastructures that provided everything in abundance from airplanes to bread. Clark, Arthur's only real life long friend, is a lawyer who gets grounded in a small city airport where he eventually establishes The Museum of Culture. The main character, Kristen, starts out as an eight year old actress who ends up literally carrying Arthur's first wife's brilliant futuristic graphic novels into adulthood. Kristen flees Toronto with her older brother. And after he dies from stepping on a nail (no more antibiotics), she goes with The Symphony where she acts and perfects her knife throwing. On the road she and her troupe members meet mostly people wanting to get on with their lives creating new small communities. But the troupe members also come up against outlaws and self-proclaimed self-serving religious fanatics. Using skill, patience and rye humor Mandel moves her plots, characters and us readers along to a logical and very satisfying story's end.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Winner of Natural Nondairy Creamers, September 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hands down this is the best real food nondairy creamer I and my guests have used. Tried so many products -- yes artificial augmented and flavored creamers can be very tasty but let's face it the ingredient lists are calorie engorged and scary. Refrigerated soy creamers are just ok. Almond, coconut and soy milks are unsatisfying because they are watery. First tried it when Fresh Direct offered it. Now that I have found it on Amazon truly wish Amazon keeps this terrific nondairy food product available.

Wallace Stegner is one of America's greatest fictional writers, yet he seems almost forgotten. Once you read this beautifully crafted story, feel you will ask the same question.

Doctorow writes historical fiction. This time he has taken The Collier Bothers, the boogeymen of 20th Century consumerism, and turned them into modern prophets.

This review is from: The Forgers (Kindle Edition)
The novel starts with the brutal amputation of both hands of a book forger and his subsequent death. We are then lead by the narrator, Will, into the world of antiquarian books and the people who love them including himself and a few others who love famous old books so much they are compelled to create more of them.
