Cool and Fun

I borrowed this recently and had a blast showing it off to my friends and family. It was especially cool to see the moon's face change up close from day to day. Get one!
Delightful and Smart

This book has everything a terrific children's novel should have. It is full of warm and loving characters, suspense, puzzles, codes, and inner struggle. In many ways it reminded me of the Series of Unfortunate Events, with the notable and welcome difference of a pleasant ending.
Blundering and incoherent

This book has some neat insights, but all of them were conveyed poorly. The author was stunningly inarticulate, and the book was a chore to read. Writing this lousy doesn't belong in print. If you feel overwhelmingly compelled to check it out, just look over the diagrams; don't subject yourself to the prose.
This book changed my life

I will never think about race, justice, war, peace, love, violence, or religion the same. The words of Dr. King are timeless. Read this book. In addition to containing the pivotal speeches of one of the greatest orators ever to speak, the book also contains thoughts from contemporaries of Dr. King, like Rosa Parks. It’s awesome. Read it.
Fun, funny, faeries

Hilarious Shakespearean comedy in which four lovers and a troupe of actors fall prey to the games of the fairie folk. This version was well acted and I much prefer it over any other I've seen.
