    It has come to my attention lately that there are many people who are in favor of increasing the minimum wage here in America. And while on the surface that might seem like a fine thing to do, even an ethical thing to do, I assure you it is a grave mistake. In a few short paragraphs I will explain w...

    I have to say fantasy is probably one of my favorite genres. Whether it’s Lord of the Rings, Eragon, or another heavy hitting series, being transported to a land of magic, dragons, and kings of old is a great way to spend an afternoon and unwind. However, Jennifer A. Nielsen’s book, The False...

    Fairness seems to be a value lost completely in today’s society. I think that perhaps this can be best seen in Barrack Obama’s undermining of immigration policy. It has been reported recently that tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children are pouring over the border, as well as that the Ob...

    You know I often wondered how people decided what to read in the days before book reviews. Word of mouth is probably the most obvious choice, but even then how are you supposed to accurately make a decision. One person might hate a given book while another might love it. Thank Jesus Christ, our Lord...

    Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks was for sure a solid book. While not everyone’s cup of tea, it certainly provided an interesting enough storyline, while focusing quite heavily on the cartoon humor portrayed in the graphic novel’s pictures. The book starts with an average, everyday girl,...

    Everyone likes a quick-paced, heart-stopping, death-defying action novel, don’t they? I do anyways, and that’s exactly what I found in Joe Schreiber’s Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. But, this isn’t your typical action novel. Sure there’s plenty of thrills and chills, and it does take pla...

    What can I say about this book? What is there to say? Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick, contains a strong and compelling narrative, and partly because of this, separates itself from other zombie/horror books of the modern day. However, its frequent grammatical and continuity errors were, in my opinion, too muc...

    I think I may already know what you’re thinking. This looks like a username. Something you’d come across on some sort of social networking site. I can assure it’s not. Boy21 by Matthew Quick is not some passing meme. It is a thought provoking novel, that makes you question life, love, and just...

    I will admit, when I first saw previews for Ang Lee’s Life of Pi I was not impressed. What I saw in those commercials did not stand out from any other films being screened in the typical fall dumping ground. A boy stranded on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger sure, sounds interesting. But when put to...

    It had been a dry Nevada summer, and this night was no exception. A storm was whipping the desert sands, and the entire region southeast of Carson City was blanketed in the dust. Carlie’s Diner wasn’t excluded. The crossroads lean-to seemed unable to resist the viciousness of the storm. Its tin ...

    When I first heard that Steve Jobs had died, I was left wondering who he was. I know, I know, but cut me some slack. I was like thirteen. However, now that I’ve read Karen Blumenthal’s Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different, I’m sure I’m totally up to speed (except for the Ashton Kutcher ...

    When I began reading A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix, I didn’t really know what to expect. The cover looks fantastical and enticing, but I never had read any of Mr. Nix’s other books before. What I got was a different kind of story; not your typical sci-fi adventure. Many years into th...

    Fear may be the bane of mankind. Fear has driven wisemen mad. It has driven the wealthy into poverty. It has crippled armies and nations alike. It has long been discussed how to deal with fear. Do we run from it? Hide from it? Lock our doors and throw away the key? Perhaps not. ...

    What is a hero? Is a hero a knight in shining armor? Who slays the ferocious fire-breathing beast, Saves the damsel in distress, And takes her hand in marriage? What is a hero? Is a hero a nerd by day? Who runs around in tights at night? Who can fly, lift heavy things And always...

    Once, in a land ruled by enchantment, there lived a king who had a legendary lust for gold. Though he had not ruled long, the king was already a legend; spoke of around the hearths and in the halls of people everywhere. Some said that he had leveled thirty-five separate cities, just so that he could...

    Sorry to all of you guys, but last weeks article hasn’t gone up yet. I’m guessing that it’s just due to a bunch of wrangling by the editors, but if you’ll just sit tight and wait a bit, I’m sure that it’ll be up in a bit. Pennsylvania Electoral Votes: 20 Governor: Tom Corbett (R...

    I wasn’t expecting much when I began reading Graceling, but suffice of to say I was truly blown away. Kristin Cahsore’s imaginative fantasy covers a sweeping epic of seven kingdoms, with seven kings of differing morals, and one woman who’ll affect them all. The book opens with Lady Katsa o...
