Named a Best Book of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews Rising ballet star Dena Lindgren's dream career is knocked off its axis when a puzzling onstage fall results in a crushing diagnosis: a brain tumor. Complications from the extraction surgery kick off a long and difficult recovery, prompting the company's artistic director, Anders Gunst, to shift his attention to an overshadowed company dancer -- Dena's older sister, Rebecca, with whom Anders once shared a special relationship.

The Last Man by Mary Shelley (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.3 Stars (166 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

Known widely as the author of "Frankenstein", Mary Shelley horrified us with her notorious monster brought to life with more humanity than we care to admit. Her later, lesser-known novel "The Last Man" (1826) explores similar thematic concerns, though from a vastly different perspective. The nightmarish story envisions the end of humanity from a ruthless and inescapable plague. Full of heart-wrenching loss, "The Last Man tests" the resilience of humanity, as well as its capacity for sorrow and grief. Of Shelley's literary works, "The Last Man" can be seen as the not only the most autobiographical, but also as a literary tribute and memorial to her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley , and Lord Byron amongst other members of her coterie. "The Last Man" is largely shaped by the events of Mary Shelley's life, and, to a lesser extent, by some of the historical events of Europe during the 1810's and early 1820's. Plot: The story is discovered, in 1818, in fragments buried in an ancient cave, ...

Arresting Grace by Michael Joel Green 3.7 Stars (54 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

Michael Green expected many things from his 38th year: to redeem a failed acting/music/writing career, to build upon friendships and church relationships, and most of all, to finally meet someone. He'd been looking -- and waiting -- a long time. What he didn't expect was to get arrested for a DUI, driving home from a church dinner. That changed everything. It was a shame, too. Two weeks earlier, he had met someone. ARRESTING GRACE is the story of Michael Green's DUI arrest, as well as his long distance relationship with Jessie, a woman from the Bay Area. Thoughtfully written, with unflinching honesty, Arresting Grace recalls such works as Donald Miller's BLUE LIKE JAZZ and Anne LaMott's GRACE (EVENTUALLY). A man searches for answers most earnestly when he's brought low. This is the story of a man, fallen lower than imaginable, searching for God in the midst... and finding grace in the most unexpected places.

A Tramp Abroad by Mark Twain (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.9 Stars (152 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

In "A Tramp Abroad", Mark Twain's unofficial sequel to "The Innocents Abroad", the author records his hilarious and diverse observations and insights while on a fifteen-month walking trip through Central Europe and the Alps. "A Tramp Abroad" is a work of non-fiction travel literature by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

Architecture of a Technodemocracy: How Technology and Democracy Can Revolutionize Governments, Empower the 100%, and End the 1% System by Jason M. Hanania (technodemocracy.us) 4.5 Stars (84 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments. The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation. Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a ...
