It was ok. I didn’t completely hate it, but I didn’t love it either. I felt it had some good points, and some that were a bit overboard. But it was well presented and flowed well.

(Actually finished 10 January 2014)

Review: World Regional Geography


World Regional Geography
World Regional Geography by Douglas L. Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really thought this book was fabulous! I know it’s a text book and required reading. But I found it informative, engaging, and fascinating! It was so fun learning more about cultures,economics, governments, historical data, landmarks, climates, industries, cultural attributes, you name it. I thought that the book was thorough and comprehensive in teaching. I felt that much of the focus had a lot to do with sociology and cultures played into the natural landscapes of the world and how we were able to effectively or ineffectively trade, grow and develop. I found myself constantly preferring to read my text book than my fluff books, and I feel that says a lot about how well this book was written! Highly recommend to everyone. I know it took a long time to finish. It was quite comprehensive, and I tested out of the class. As soon as I finished this class my reading changed to my next class and had to refocus my efforts in finishing the two textbooks allocated to that class instead. Again, fascinating read, even if it’s not for school!

Review: The Historian


The Historian
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my goodness I absolutely LOVED this book!!!!! Very well researched, written and believable! I was quite shocked at the end of the first chapter to see what this book was REALLY about, and I remained in constant, ‘are you kidding me’ state the rest of the book. Constantly on the edge of my seat and completely obsessed through the last page. I really really hope that there will be another book continuing from here, it felt like it could continue on… I certainly do not want to give any spoilers… So I will leave this at – this is definitely a journey you need to take – your perspective will change forever and this book will go to the very top of your favorites list. Ms. Kostova did an amazing job with her research, her details, story and characters. She will not disappoint. 🙂
