5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., June 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First and foremost please keep in mind that Human Property Hanging in the Family Tree Yields a Harvest is not a memoir but is a work of non-fiction. It's loaded with dates, facts and figures as most historical accounts need to be.

What you get here that you may not find in other works of historical non-fiction though is the author's direct connection to the source material. Ann Lee is recounting her family history with this work and because of that she is able to provide asides in the tale. This is an inspiring, historical, look at a family's journey through America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, June 6, 2012
The Evangeline Heresy is something rare in novels that deal with the supernatural these days in that it is wholly unique. For starters, it is a quiet novel. One that allows you to get lost in the atmosphere of the narrative while at the same time it propels you to its conclusion.

Unfortunately though that is all I can say because to say more would open up this review to the potential of spoiling the ending. While one doesn't realize it until the end, the story is very tightly plotted and executed with such precision that its almost impossible to discuss what makes this novel great from the events that occur throughout it.

(I would also like to add that I read this novel on my Nook.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything they Wanted Monster to be., September 12, 2003
This review is from: New Adventures in Hi-Fi (Audio CD)
With "Monster", REM tried to make an album that encapsulated all the anganst and apathy of the early nineties. It was a good attempt but ended up being more of a sonic experiment than an album full of meaning. Not their best work, but interesting enough to keep their fans from losing interest in them.
With "New Adventures", REM gave us the "rock" album that we all knew they had in them, and they fullfilled all the promises they had made with "Monster". Songs like 'The Wake Up Bomb', 'So Fast,So Numb', 'Departure' and 'Leave' perfected all the meaning and message that they tried to convey on "Monster". While, they held on to the elements that made "Automatic For the People" a classic with songs like 'Bittersweet Me', 'Be mine' and 'Electrolite'.
In a class all it's own, is 'E-Bow the Letter'. If not musically, then definitly lyrically the best thing REM has recorded to date and the number 1 reason why you need to buy this album.
"New Adventures in Hi-Fi", is everything that made REM great from their beginnings, and was a great way to wrap up an era of the band before Bill Berry left and they had to go out and think of whole new ways to concoct that magic that only they can create.
