Le monde entier a presque explosé ... Nos généraux fous de guerre exigeaient que nous fassions exploser Cuba ... et ne savaient pas que 160 ogives atomiques étaient déjà là, 60 sur des missiles et prêtes à partir à tout moment. Si nous avions envahi ... cela aurait fait au moins 60 millions de morts en une heure. Bobby a fait le bon appel ... et nous a sauvé la vie. Quel grand président il devait être.
Je n'ai aucune idée pourquoi certaines personnes pensaient que c'était suggestif. Eh bien, pour les enfants et les adultes qui ont un niveau d'émotivité et de maturité, un enfant de 11 ans ou plus adorera ce livre. J'ai dû lire ceci pour un cours et je n'ai pas aimé ça mais j'ai adoré! J'ai fini par finir assez vite! Il avait une intrigue incroyable et m'a fait me sentir béni et mauvais pour les personnages principaux à la fin. Je veux en dire beaucoup plus mais cela le gâcherait!
Some elements of this story are poignant and moving, however, given the length of this novel very little happens. This was an Oprah book of the year. I found it hard to get through, but get through it I did, dang it!
Clarity by Kim Harrington Publisher: Scholastic Point Age: Young Adult Species: Human (Psychics) Rating: 5/5 Interest: Clairvoyant/psychic/teen romance/200 in 2011 I don't think I can properly describe how much I loved Clarity. Kim Harrington is the author I want to be when I grow up. Clarity was a spine tingling mystery which kept me guessing to the end and had one of the most loving family dynamics I've read. I could not get enough of the relationships in this book. Every single person had a connection with someone else, which is bound to happen in a small town. However, Harrington took it one step further by making me care about all of her characters. That never happens! I could empathize with and like almost every single character. There were only 2 people I didn't like and frankly those witches had it coming. Hell, I even liked the murderer before I learned who it was. I did not see who the murder was. I was nearly blind-sided by the person's confession. The book had me speculating and paranoid about who the murderer was practically from the first page. By the end I had suspected almost everyone and dismissed them all (mainly because I liked them) and I was still wrong when I settled on who it was! This is a totally new experience for me, because I can usually guess within the first 10 minutes of a crime drama or novel who the killer is. Being able to actually be surprised for once was so awesome, so props to Kim Harrington for an intriguing mystery. The boys. What can I say about the boys? Both equally delicious, sensitive and full of steamy chemistry with Clare. It was nearly impossible to choose between the two. Gabriel Toscano was a new, sexy piece of male specimen and Justin was willing to do anything for and was so in love with Clare. Eventually I was able to pick one, and I so hope it was the right guy! I can not wait for the second book Perception to hit the shelves. It's going to be awful to have to wait till next year. I liked how Harrington portrayed the Fern Family's powers. Their gifts weren't exaggerated or the main focus of the book. Perry, Starla and Clare were all normal people who happened to be able to do some extraordinary things from talking to the dead, to reading minds to getting visions of the past from touching objects. They were so much more relate-able when they're gifts were pushed to the sidelines. It made me like them even more. Although Clare's ability was pretty stinking cool. :) I don't think I've ever been so pleasantly surprised and happy to read a book I've wanted for so long. It was exactly what I had wanted/hoped it would be and more. It was so worth the wait! Clarity totally lives up to every single good review and flash of hype it gets. Go! Beg, borrow, buy or kidnap this book it is made of awesome! Series Order: 1. Clarity 2. Perception (Releasing in 2012 in the U.S.) Teaser Lines: "Listen, I gather you have a problem working with a psychic. Believe me, I don't like working with a jackass any better." Happy Reading, My Summer Girl
