    Another one of these inappropriate children's books I see. The Giver is a 1993 children's novel by Lois Lowry. It is set in a society which is at first presented as a Utopian society and gradually appears more and more dystopian. The novel follows a boy named Jonas through the twelfth year of...

    John Green: The Fault in Our Stars

    Opinions are divided (naturally) but it generally comes down to that fact that teens tend to copy a bit too faithfully what is presented to them which is why topics such as suicide, anorexia, bulimia, self harm, death and drug use have to be very cautiously and carefully dealt with.

    Now you are asking for a review which I think would be a miracle :) BTW a three book series is a trilogy.

    The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich

    I was listening to this today and thought the lyrics appropriate to this discussion: "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream" Last night I had the strangest dream I ever dreamed before I dreamed the world had all agreed To put an end to war I dreamed I saw a mighty room The room was filled with...

    Western Movies

    I have not seen it, my most recent western was Django which was totally brilliant, but then I simply love Quentin Tarrantino's movies. Before that that I THOROUGHLY enjoyed despite initial reservations was Cowboys and Aliens. Other recent(ish) westerns I have enjoyed was Open Range with Kevin...

    Western Movies

    Sorry moved, just a bit too off-topic. And its worth having a thread to discuss westerns, there are a bunch of really good ones.

    All thanks to Wikipedia, which apparently is in fact sometimes correct :)

    I'd say pick one, any one and start there because he is consistently good. One thing I would say about him is that he writes morally unambiguous stories. The good guys wear white hats and the bad guys wear black and there is no grey. Another good western author is Louis L'amour. I can also...

    Yes. I have had the thought for a long time, and think it every time I read this thread LOL it just takes me a long time to get around to saying things sometimes. What use is it to any one else to just say 'I read this' without giving a bit more information especially given how um disinclined...

    Lonesome Dove From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Lonesome Dove is a 1985 Pulitzer Prize–winning western novel written by Larry McMurtry. It is the first published book of the Lonesome Dove series, but the third installment in the series chronologically. The story focuses on the relationship...

    I wonder if it wouldn't be helpful if participants in this thread posted a link and blurb to the book as well as their thoughts?

    The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich

    The problem isn't even solved by having more time, annoyingly people keep writing new amazing books you just have to read and all the while all you want to do is scream 'Just STOP for a moment, let me catch up!" LOL

    The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich

    It is situations and people like this that give me hope, to bring in a discussion from another thread (on Cloud Atlas), there is hope for the world as long as there are people like this in it.

    The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich

    The more I learn about the kind of ongoing resentment and you-did-this-200-years-ago-so-I-am-going-to-do-this-back that exists in the world the more convinced I am of the need for the power of forgiveness. A powerful example of the healing that can come from forgiveness can be seen in one of the...

    Which is the best of all the comic books

    Hmm generally in my experience people say 'just joking' when they really meant what they actually said, but realise it has offended or will offend some one and back down by trying to turn it into a joke instead of either not saying it in the first place or apologising. Please speak nicely to...
