Percy Jackson & the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson & the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief

gardner, March 13, 2010

It brings back the Greek myths in an enjoyable way. I hope this series of books will renew interest in the myths.
The book is enjoyable and reminds me of the Harry Potter series.

This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust
This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War

gardner, July 7, 2008

This is a very good book. The professor's brilliance comes through. She has concluded about the American view of death pre civil war (the good death) and does not really consider alternatives. The in depth discussion of mourning customs is very much worth the read as is the discussion of poetry and the arts.

Overall, a great book. I would have liked more breadth in the discussion of death culture.
