Prince Caspian – the book

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

In preparation for seeing Prince Caspian tonight, I just finished the book.  I had forgotten a lot of it, but it was still good ( even for an adult ).  Last night it really reminded me to keep my eyes on God, which is always a good reminder.   Also, it ...

Sandworms of Dune, pages page 132 to the end. By Kevin Anderson and Brian Herbert

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

OK, it has been awhile since I read this book.  But I did like the ending and it was very entertaining.  Still very unbiblical world view.  The one thing I did like was the bringing together of the machines and the humans.  I always thought the unreasonable fear and hatred ...

Coming soon

Ok, I have been real busy, but I wanted to comment on the following things in the next few days ( as I have time to rewatch some shows and get my thoughts in order ): August Rush movie - Good Sandworms of Dune book - ended pretty good Last episode of Chuck ...

Sandworms of Dune, pages up to page 132. By Kevin Anderson and Brian Herbert

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Well, I have to turn the book into the library tomorrow, so might as well comment on what I have read.  That is what I get for picking up 2 books from the library - could not finish both of them:-).  Anyway, like the other Dune books to read.  Very ...

Worldbinder by David Farland

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

OK, just finished the 6th book in the Runelords series. As with the prior novels, it was quite enjoyable. I doubt it will ever be a bestseller, but it had some good points that I appreciated. The good: A common theme is love and loyalty. No extra marital relationships treated ...

The Machine Crusade, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

Well, I thought it was interesting.  Much of the same things can be said about this book that I said about the other Dune books.   There is a lot of playing on emotions through the avenue of religion in these books.  There is no distinct concept of a creator.  I ...

Hunters of Dune, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Pretty interesting book. Definitely brings up some interesting thoughts. But, to be honest, while there are a surprising amount of monotheistic religions represented in this book, I really do not see any reference whatsoever to the need for a savior. Not surprising, really. There is ...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – take 2

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

Ok, did not know blogging, especially this type of blogging, would be so hard. Anyway, to continue from last time, the thing I really appreciate in the Harry Potter books, especially this last one, was the loyalty of the friends to each other. Especially ...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – take 1

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Ok, this is only my first take on the book and I am pretty tired. So it will be short. The thing I really appreciated about the book is the loyalty people show to each other, especially our heroes. Sure, they make mistakes and have lapses ...
