The Fault In Our Stars

Date Tue, June 26 2012

John Green knows how to write a book. He quotes Vonnegut, alludes to Star Wars, makes you cry and makes you laugh, all in exactly the right order. In this book about cancer victims, he writes intelligent teenagers that are almost unbelievable, but with whom I’m sure I’d like to have a conversation. The Fault […]

Popologetics

Date Sun, June 3 2012

Before I started this book by Ted Turnau, I wasn’t familiar with apologetics. However, I picked it up because I am interested in pop culture. Luckily, the author does take the time to explain apologetics pretty well in the first section. If you’re not familiar, Wikipedia defines it as follows: the discipline of defending a […]

Ghostbusters Volume 1

Date Tue, March 20 2012

Although the cover of Ghostbusters volume 1 features the likeness of Ray and the crew, the style of art is much “cuter” and less realistic. This is, perhaps, a comic book that is better left to the kids because of it. That isn’t to say that adult readers and long-time fans of the Ghostbusters stories […]
