A morbidly grotesque tour through medical history. It's not difficult to ken where zombie lore comes from after peeping some of these horrifying specimens. Beyond that, the illustrations are beautiful, even if the subject is gruesome.
Phew! Dramatic and exciting. Full of interesting historical details. Terribly sad. Often more cinematic than the movie! After finishing it, I immediately started re-reading it and telling everyone how coffee was made at the slave cabins of Louisiana. The language is from the 19th century without being archaic. It's an incredible story and a truly engrossing book.
Gorgeously illustrated and accessibly written answers to life's burning questions like, "Do immortal creature exist?" and "Why do cats purr?" A fascinating and fun read for any age.
One of the best books I've read in a while. Written as a series of letters to Richard Gere, this sweet, quirky, and wholly optimistic story is guaranteed to make you appreciate what you've got - no matter how odd it might seem from the outside.
I thought I was burnt out on memoirs. Everyone has one. Gary Shteyngart's offers more than the usual with a deeper investigate into his family's history and culture. Shteyngart himself is funny (stange and ha-ha), pathetic, and somehow still strangely likable.
Flapping jowls! Flying hair! Contorted faces! Swirling drool!
Shaking dogs look like aliens. Or like someone forgot where all their
parts went. The dog photos range from the ludicrous (Dax) to the
glamorous (Zorro) with all sorts of fun in between.
A sex education comic book! I want to buy copies of this book for all the kids I know, just so it will be there when they get old enough to need it. Vulnerable yet mature, funny and often heartbreaking, it's a sex education book that goes beyond the mechanics into all the messiness, pain and beauty of sex and relationships.
Landscaping, interior design, fine dining... dogs have a host of unfortunate hobbies. This photo book makes light of their bad habits by publicly shaming them, and helps human readers find the humor in canine antics. Short, to the point, and very, very funny!
If you shake your head at what kids are up to nowadays, you should see what your (great) great grandmother was up to! Namely Unicorn Driving and the Butterfly Dance. There's a whole chapter on Coasting techniques and one with women in full dresses wielding swords. A must have!
Although we are cat fanciers ourselves, we know our better halves are out there. If you are or know a dog lover,
you will cherish this book. It really is all about dogs, how we live
with them, love them, miss them, and lovely bits of life in between.
Oliver is a celebrated poet, but she is still accessible for those who aren't as familiar with poetry.
