In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin

Smooches26, January 30, 2013

Mr. Larson has an amazing talent for retelling factual history like it is a fictional story. I have an interest in history but always find the books so drab and boring. Erik Larson's books are my solution; I can't put them down once I start reading them.
"In the Garden of Beasts; ..." is no exception. The reality of life for ambassador Dodd and his family engulfs you. Feeling and witnessing the society of parties, censorship, intimidation, grand schemes, and of course, the unspeakable violence. "Watching" as the individuals realize the severity of their choices and how they cope with living among such chaos is fascinating. The book helps the reader understand the answer to the question of how Hitler developed into such a grandiose public figure. History should be taught in this way.

Kitchen secrets :tips, tricks, techniques & recipes. by Reader's Digest and Dolezal

Smooches26, October 11, 2012

This is a great book to give to a new cook or even a long time cook. The tips are great and very useful.
I've had my book since it's first release and have it on display because I love to recommend it to people.
Only reason I'm looking for another book is the binding is loose so now all the pages come out of the book.
