The Lincoln Lawyer Review

The Lincoln Lawyer was a thrilling read and quick-paced crime mystery. I would recommend it to any reader in high school, based on the story's fast moving plot that keeps the reader interested. The story constantly included dialogue, action, and a new twist in the storyline nearly every chapter. I particularly enjoyed seeing inside the mind of Mick, the main character, as the story progressed. In addition to the enthralling and quick moving plot, the constant dialogue inside Mick's mind and…See More

Oprah and Elie Weisel at Auscwitz Part 1

"After reading Night I felt like I could feel the pain and suffering in that terrible place; the voices of a million souls crying out to Mr. Weisel. It must have been very difficult for Elie to come back there after all of those years."

Mockingjay the Third Book

This quarter I read the third novel of the Hunger games trilogy, Mockingjay. Personally, I did find the third installment of the series a little slow, but in the end, I ultimately enjoyed reading the book. The novel began with Katniss visiting her recently bombed out district in her futuristic, war-torn country of Panem, Over the course of the novel, Katniss acts as a rebel leader and symbol to the people of her cause and country, as she is used as a political pundit in a violent and ferocious…See More

Carrie: A Captivating Thriller

Carrie is the creation of world renowned author Stephen King, and after reading it, I believe it ranks among his best novels. The novel encompasses the last living days of Carietta “Carrie” White, a misguided, lonely high school senior living under the watchful eye of her unstable, religiously obsessed mother, Margaret. The novel is well written, and the buildup to the demise of Carrie and countless others is full of suspense created by superbly written dialogue, various and descriptive…See More

Jacob Werling commented on Rishi T's blog post An irritating ending to an extremely good book!

Oprah and Elie Weisel at Auscwitz Part 1

"This video is so moving. Just the fact that he had the courage to go back was truly amazing! I am not sure that I would have the courage to go back to something that awful."

Elisa Perez commented on Jacob Werling's blog post Night
"I agree that the story of Elie Wiesel took us into a world that many of use didnt know because we didnt live through the Holocaust. I liked Night but there were parts that were a little too much to handle and that even scary. Whats even worse…"

            Close Quarters is a memoir of Larry Heinemann’s experiences in Vietnam. The story uses vivid detail and diction to convey his memories to the readers. The story lacks any real central theme, and is highly violent. The only literary element that persists throughout the story is the destruction of the main character’s increasing desensitization to violence, as one by one, his friends are killed off by Vietnamese forces. The first friend to be…
