A Few Good Books

Well first of all there are alot of amazingly great books out there, but only a few live up to my standandard. So here are 3 very interesting books that people of all ages might, and might not, enjoy; and the reviews are from Barnes&

1.) Night by Eli Wiesel.

Night is Elie Wiesel’s masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie’s wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author’s original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man’s capacity for inhumanity to man.

2.)The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Carole

In this opening volume, Lewis "presents a world corrupted with powerful evil, full of dangerous temptations; humanity is seen as often weak and prone to erring ways," David L. Russell explained, "but with the capacity for devotion and even heroism if guided by the unconditional love of the godhead."

3.)The Works of Edger Allan Poe by Edger Allen Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is a complex and difficult author to understand as a person. At each point in his life when he was on the verge of success, he would fall back to poverty through his own actions. His writings are filled with horror, are weird and are mostly morbid in tone. This collection includes over 50 poems and over 50 short stories by Poe as well as his only full length novel -- The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym.

Well thats all for now see yah' later!!!

I like all of these as well. My daughter is about your age and is working through's a dark story about a soldier who tries to go into politics and can't leave the violence behind. Lots of friends betrayed and backstabbing, with predictable bad results. And some very stereotypical witches. You might like it.

Wow, Dragon Fire, I really love your blog!

Here's one book I hope you will like: Luna's California Poppies by Alma Luz Villanueva. It's about a girl growing up in San Francisco and the hard stuff she has to deal with. It's written as letters to La Virgen de Guadalupe, like a diary, too.
