Fascinating!

Is College Worth It?

Is College Worth It?

On 5/27 Leung Fung wrote: What is right - and what is very wrong - with college curricula these days? Will a traditional college degree go by the wayside, now that there are online classes available in so many fields? Is a traditional college education the right choice for every young person? How can families choose the best ... Very good, hits many problems right on the nose, but needs more!

Tough Guys and Drama Queens

Tough Guys and Drama Queens

On 2/8 Leung Fung wrote: Of course it involves such interesting questions. The issue of class is everywhere here, the fact that she could break out of her own world and accept their world on their terms. And the issue of when she got carried away with that--as when she accept the girls' prostituting themselves, which might be ... Good

The River

The River

On 11/3 Leung Fung wrote: It was an interesting story. I didn't think I liked it at first but I found myself wanting to pick it up each night to find out what happened. I was not a huge fan of the format; I've seen other comments that refer to it as lyrical prose but I just felt it was very narrative, which I don't normally enjoy. ... Not bad!

On 10/19 Leung Fung wrote: This book takes a multi-faceted look at faith through both a historical, philosophical and biblical point of view. The book makes you think deeply about the topics presented and I found myself being drawn further and further into the book. What I liked most about the book is that it does not hit you ...

On 8/9 Leung Fung wrote: I highly recommend All Pro Dad for any Dad that wants to be a better father, better husband and ultimately a better man. Gregory Slayton advises that fatherhood is really a lifelong journey and that we Dad's should expect good times right alongside rough times. But, in either case the outcome is often ... Awesome!

Sherman

Sherman

On 4/12 Leung Fung wrote: Unfortunately General Sherman did not share General Grant's natural ability with the pen. General Sherman's book is a collection of his major wartime correspondence linked together by his narrative. This provides a quite fascinating look at Sherman's career for the historian of both the professional ... Sherman

Washington

Washington

On 5/13 Leung Fung wrote: This book was a bit different from what I expected when I received it as a gift. I enjoy reading American history, and thought this would be a historical examination of the Washington years, i.e. the Revolutionary War and his two terms in office. While it did obviously cover those events, it was far ... Washington

Invasion

Invasion

On 12/25 Leung Fung wrote: Ooooooooo! Doesn't that sound chilling! Nothing like a story filled with flesh-eating revenants (zombies), clockwork automata full of human tissue (robots), crashing airships (dirigibles), and a handsome British detective team cracking the case! In the spirit of my Sister Aurora (who is feverishly writing ... Invasion
