Matt Gura commented on Josh Pankratz's blog post Econ on the English Blog
"I read this book back in freshamn year, and really enjoyed it. I remember all the specific references the author uses to help get his point across to his reader. After taking AP Econ this semester I really want to go back and read the book to see if…"

Econ on the English Blog

At the beginning of this quarter (Spring Break and the week following) I finally worked my way through a book that had been sitting on my Kindle for quite some time, Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. Written by Steven Levitt, an economist who ran many of the studies in the book, and Stephen…See More

"I really like mystery books and this novel seems like it'll have an enthralling plot. I cant waint to check it out"

Josh Pankratz commented on Alex Wysocki's blog post Top 5 Books About First Hand Experiences During War
"Code Talkers is a great book and shows a different side of the war that I wasn't aware of. Also, if you enjoy these books about real events I'd highly recommend Lone Survivor, it's a very exciting, emotional story about a SEAL in…"

Josh Pankratz commented on Joey Carlisle's blog post Injustice to YA Readers: 5 Ways the Divergent Movie Killed My Imagination
"Now I have not seen the movie (I didn't hear great things about it) but I do think that this is a common problem with movie adaptations of books. I think it is nearly impossible for a movie to please a hardcore fan because they have to condense…"

Josh Pankratz commented on Abhay Adhyapak's blog post The Definite, Certain, Unabridged List of the Top Five Fantasy Worlds (with commentary)
"I've only read the LOTR series and part of the Song of Fire and Ice Series and I completely agree. Both Tolkein and Martin created two very unique and fascinating worlds each with such a long history that they feel like real places"

Josh Pankratz commented on Michael LaBarge's blog post Five Plot Twists That Will Blow Your Mind (SPOILERS)
"I only looked at the twists I've seen (Winter Soldier, LOTR, and Harry Potter) and completely agree these were all great plot twists. Especially Snape, did not see that coming and he is certainly one of the most interesting characters in the…"

Caroline Prescott commented on Josh Pankratz's blog post The Road, A Review
"I completely agree that the post-apocalyptic future theme is being way over-used lately. After reading this review though and how high quality you find the writing to be, I may have to give this book a try and attempt to get past the whole…"

Josh Pankratz commented on Daniel Tokarz's blog post How Movies Can Hold Their Own With Books
"I don't think one needs to be better than another. I think both books and movies bring different artistic design, and both have their pros and cons. Books allow for imagination and creativity over a period of time while movies are a visually…"

Jacob Werling commented on Josh Pankratz's blog post Pillars of the Earth, A Great Epic
"I don't normally read long epics, mainly because they take so long to read, but I think I might have to make an exception in this case."

Josh Pankratz commented on Hayley Scheid's blog post Persist Past Procrastination: Breaking the Habit
"These are great tips! Over the course of my Fremd career I have certainly learned the importance of good time management. Also, couldn't agree more on putting away the phone/social media when doing work, it can be very distracting."

Josh Pankratz commented on Shannon Wittel's blog post The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
"I have heard so many great things about the book! Now that there's a movie coming out I think I will have to read the book so I can keep up with everyone"

Josh Pankratz commented on Nick Vucovich's blog post The Grapes of Wrath
"I've had this book sitting on my kindle for awhile now, but it's deterred me due to its length. Steinbeck is a great author and now that you've recommended it, I may need to read it!"

Josh Pankratz commented on Matt Baughman's blog post My Top 11 Movies
"Some solid choices here. I agree that Christopher Nolan is great and the Godfather is probably one of the most iconic films of all time. I don't know if you've seen the movie Goodfellas, but if you haven't you should as soon as…"

The Road, A Review

    In my opinion, there is currently no genre that’s as oversaturated as the post-apocalyptic genre. While there are certainly standouts in the media from this…See More

Posted on October 23, 2013 at 11:22pm 15 Comments

            If you have absolutely no desire to read a long epic book, keep reading because this may be the book to change that view. If you love long epics and haven’t read this book, then you need to remedy this situation immediately.…

The next book blogs will be due in about a month.  You should dump the boring book and start something else.  Bookseer.com and YourNextRead.com can be helpful in selecting a new title, along with all of the suggestions on our site.
