The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Because of Goodreads I discovered the novel, The Kite Runner is a Historical Fiction Novel by Khaled Hosseini. It begins in Afghanistan’s relatively liberal monarchy of the 1970s, briefly before a military coup and the Russian invasion would forever change the landscape of the once beautiful Kabul. 368 more words

A Book Review of 'A people's History of the United States' by Zinn

The book ‘A People’s History’ has a neon-Marxist perspective. The author is not objective nor does he try to be. The book first revisiting major historical events in America then retells major events while providing additional information of most historical figures. 66 more words

The Mysteries Of Paris

“You know my ideas on the subject of the good which a man ought to do who has the knowledge, the will, and the power. To succour unhappy, but deserving, fellow creatures is well; to seek after those who are struggling against misfortune with energy and honour, and to aid them, sometimes without their knowledge,—to prevent, in right time, misery and temptation, is better; to reinstate such perfectly in their own estimation,—to lead back to honesty those who have preserved in purity some generous and ennobling sentiments in the midst of the contempt that withers them, the misery that eats into them, the corruption that encircles them, and, for that end, to brave, in person, this misery, this corruption, this contagion, is better still; to pursue, with unalterable hatred, with implacable vengeance, vice, infamy, and crime, whether they be trampling in the mud, or be clothed in purple and fine linen, that is justice; but to give aid inconsiderately to well-merited degradation, to prostitute and lavish charity and commiseration, by bestowing help on unworthy and undeserving objects, is most infamous; it is impiety,—very sacrilege! 4.563 more words
