More Condensed Book Reviews

Believe it or not, this is rather fun..

"The Stolen White Elephant" by Mark Twain
- Entertaining but not exceptional

"George C. Wallace: triumph of tragedy?" by Rodolphe J. A De Seife
- Sheer propaganda, a smear campaign in reverse

"Everybody's Business Is Nobody's Business" by Daniel Defoe
- A raging rant

"The Beekeeper's Apprentice" - Laurie R. King
- At last! A highly creative Sherlock knock-off

"The Gospel According to Rome" by James McCarthy
- Nice!

"Free Software, Free Society: Selected Essays of Richard M. Stallman" by Richard Stallman
- Good introduction to Stallman, eccentricities to be expected

"We the Media : Grassroots Journalism By the People, For the People" by Dan Gilmor
- Excellent

"KJV 1611: Perfect! A Conviction, Not a Preference" by Roy Branson
- Rubbish, and mean/uncharitable rubbish at that

"On Jesus" by Douglas Groothis
- Excellent

"Spirits In Bondage: A Cycle Of Lyrics" by C.S. Lewis
- Lewis in Angst mode

"Python Cookbook" by Alex Martelli
- Tasty

"L'Abri" by Edith Schaeffer
- Excellent

"Art and the Bible" by Francis Schaeffer
- Wonderful

"The Believer's Conditional Security" by Dan Corner
- A misguided rant in every regard, more bold type than good sense

"Diary of a Nobody" by George Grossmith
- Seemingly unsophisticated, but good!

"The Friendly Dictatorship" by Jeffry Simpson
- Not without faults, but interesting!

"The Negro revolt" by Louis Lomax
- Interesting

"A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" - Mark Twain
- Wonderfully humorous

"Behold the Man" by R. Kent Hughes
- Good

Yes. Although, I must admit that a few of those were actually audio books.
