  • Gabriel Rubin - A Jarring NovelI read this book in less than two days. It is a quick and jarring read. McCarthy creates a black ashen world where humans eat each other and where life is almost meaningless. The only thing keeping the main character going is the love of his son.

    It is a bit of an assault to read through 200+ pages of barren, ashen landscape and languid prose. Yet the final paragraph/epilogue put it all together for me and elevated this book into a remarkable commentary on those who say we are more important than the Earth or that we can live without our planet. George Monbiot's review is especially poignant for me. This truly is the ultimate eco-novel and I mean that in a completely non-political sense. There is nothing political about loving our planet. And the view McCarthy gives us of a world that we have rejected and that has in turn rejected us is the ultimate warning to appreciate our blessings.
  • Mathew Knudson - A Book Good Enough to Make You AngryThis book is an incredibly well researched and well-presented history of the police in the US, the rise of SWAT teams, stop-and-frisk, and other practices, that will leave you both enlightened and enraged. This book, while discussing something political, manages to avoid partisanship, instead focusing purely on the growing misuse of force to solve every problem, from drugs to regulatory law. This is a must read for anyone who cares about justice or freedom, as the phenomenon he describes is a clear enemy of both.
  • A. Pirowski - For Young Women OnlyI think that this book deserves applause. Shaunti put so much time and effort into her books in understanding the way men/young men feel that all girls and women should read them. My daughter read this book and it gave her a healthy out look on boys so she is better at understanding about what makes them tick. The fact that she gears it around the christian outlook only makes it better!!!!!!!
  • Nidia - Cute images!As a mom with 2 girls who love Domo, I just had to get this one as our family calendar. All of the images are great and the calendar itself is nice and sturdy. The $1 ones always drove me crazy because they would fold over when hanging on the wall. This one is perfect and worth every penny.
