Place In Leopold's Congo
755 wordsBook Review of King Leopold's Ghost, by Adam Hochschild What some have considered to be the first international scandal of the modern era took place in the Congo from 1890 until 1910.

Stephen King's First Novel

He is still in mourning, and since her death has been unable to write (known as "writer's block") "I walked around, touching things, looking at things, seeing them new. Jo seemed everywhere to me......
471 wordsLike many, my only exposure to the Hunchback has been through TV caricatures and the Disney bastardization. Forever distrustful of the Mouse Ears, I didn t know what to expect reading the real deal. Hugo is an awesome storyteller. While perhaps he could be guilty of rambling on at several points, his descriptions of 15th century Paris are vivid. His writing is very intriguing, he always struck my curiosity. I found myself empathizing with the pitiable situations of the Hunchback and his beauty, ...
