This was on my son's (who's 15) summer reading list, which he didn't read, but it was on my Kindle so I thought I would give it a try because I heard it was good. To my surprise I really got into it fast as the suspense built with the storm coming and Zeitoun going about is contracting business. It has a lot of things going for it: it's an adventure, a character study, provides an understanding of what it's like to be a Muslim in this country, it a story of a city in crisis, and presents surreal experience of the city under water, and a look into the mismanagement and over-reation of the federal government. I thought I wouldn't like it because I knew the main character was going to get caught up in it and I would have this negative and angry reaction, but this was only a small part of a book with a rich weaving of many different elements. I highly recommend it.
I live outside the US so it was a big risk buying this thing without any warranty. The tablet works perfectly, with ICS runs really really fast,moving through the apps is a really nice sensation. right now I'm playing pokemon stadium 2 (n64 emulator), runs without any lag...
BE AWARE: the web navigation is not the strong part of this device, the ipad does a better job, and also the apps for IOS are better, I have an ipod touch 4g and the games are better, no doubt about that. But since I don't have the money to pay the ipad apss, I'm happy with my android device.
About the camera, WOW!. I wasn't expecting taking pictures with a tablet, but now is my best camera, and also the integration with dropbox is really cool, when you take a picture, the tablet automatically sends the picture to your dropbox folder. nice!
500$ for this tablet?...difficult question, It's a really nice device but if you're going to buy it just to play angry birds, please DON'T!
No this isn't Dark Side or Wish you were Here. Instead it's Pink Floyd finally getting the monkey named Waters off their backs. This album (like most floyd albums) does have a concept. It's an album about lack of communication. But it doesn't cram it down your throat like the wall does. This album is not as good as the wall (the only album better than the wall is Dark Side of the Moon) but it is no slacker. Marooned is probably the best instrumental I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. The Division Bell is a very reflective album. There are several refrences to Waters, Barrett, and a song Wright seems to be singing about himself...."I murmured a vow of silence and now I don't even hear when I think aloud....I'm creeping back to life..." There will always be skeptics of Floyd without Roger. But compare this album to Water's "Amused to Death" or any of his solo stuff. Musically it's a tour-de-force with the greatest guitarist ever steering Pink Floyd towards "the endless river forever and ever..." High Hopes is the best Floyd album ender since Eclipse. A must have for any fan of music.
To put it simple, the VAST majority of people I meet who consider themselves religious, and that's Christian, Jew or Muslim, really only have a very general knowledge (if any) of Roman and Jewish history, the Old Testament, and the geopolitical environment of that region of the world at that time. Most only know what they hear in church or from a televangelist, and most don't care to know anynmore, and unfortunately contemporary ministers and churches seem to want it that way.
The author ties all this together nicely, so you don't have to read the entire 20 volume Antiquity of the Jews by Josephus etc to get a grasp of of all of the above by the end of this book. Throughout the book you'll have many "Ah ha" moments where you say to yourself, "Oh, OK now the Bible makes sense, why this happened, or that happened and logically yet.
If you're wanting to discover the history of Jesus, his followers, the Holy Land, and make some sense out of how and why Christianity grew and spred, then read this book. If you want to hear about alot of superstition, supernatural, and end times prophecy then turn on a televangelist.
