Vaccine Nation

4.0 out of 5 stars Vaccine Nation, 4 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vaccine Nation (Kindle Edition)
This book is not as interesting to read as Arab Summer by the same author. I was disappointed. It was evident early on to guess the outcome. The possible link between vaccines and Autism is an old story that has been well discussed.

An extremely unpleasant story with violence littering small of the book. It was a very bad choice for me. I would not recommend it to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars The WIlkie Collins Megapack, 17 April 2014

Short stories do not give opportunity for Collins to demonstrate the complex planning and use of the imagination so evident in his other works. Perhaps if these stories are read at bedtime, they might bring on sleep, but they are not for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DROWNING GUARD BY LINDA LAFFERTY, 21 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book takes the reader into past centuries and foreign soil without ever becoming boring. The emotions are roused from beginning to the end. Exotic scenes are so well portrayed that even the smell of the spices mixed with other fragrant aromas pull us into the scene and motivate the taste buds. The characters are well drawn causing the reader to admire courage, detest gender inequality, and recoil from the brutality and misuse of power. The book is well researched and true to history but it is a novel and one of the best I have read for some time.

What happens when I die? (Questions Christians Ask)
What happens when I die? (Questions Christians Ask)

5.0 out of 5 stars What Happens When I Die? Author: Marcus Nodder., 14 Mar 2014

This is a book which in my opinion could benefit everyone since death affects us all. The book did informative and answers questions which we might not wish to ask. It is based strongly on scripture but draws on much study which as death nears, one might be too difficult to undertake. It addresses both burial and cremation, the latter posing a problem for many people, especially Christians. It is better to read this book before such a stage is reached.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREAT GOSPEL DECEPTION BY DAVID SERVANT., 12 Mar 2014

Should you read this book (and I hope that you do) prepare for self examination for this writer (basing everything on scripture) blows away the idea that once you can live carelessly or sinfully.. Instead the real believer will be transformed. Faith without words is dead so consider whether you are in the faith or not. This is a book that can change the way you think.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Prayers. Off Pope Francis, 5 Mar 2014

After reading many books by our last Pope, this disappointing.
It is too simplistic, and probably too short to reach any depth. Obviously some people may benefit but it is unlikely that they will become Apologists who can defend their faith.

I ordered this book by accident but found it to be a riveting read. Initially I thought it would be written for teenagers, instead the story brought characters to life and revealed how seemingly respectable adults caused emotional damage to others. I found that I wanted to read through to the breakthrough stopping.

The book took some time to whet my interest but patience paid off and there was great reward..The story had a happy ending with the highest level of human integrity being. reached. The . injustice endemic in the system once hallowed becomes meaningless when true modal sense meant more than money.
