A Few Book Reviews

Here are some of my more recent readings and a quick thought about them:

"Superimmunity for Kids: What to Feed Your Children to Keep Them Healthy Now, and Prevent Diseases in Their Future" By Leo Galland
- His main point is that we don't get enough essential fatty acids (omega 3s) and that getting on them will help your immune system. He also talks about the evils of sugar and un-whole foods. Pretty much knew it all, but it was a really good reminder and refresher. 

"As In a Mirror" By Emrys Tyler
- A Christian Durangoin wrote this fantasy novel as an allegory. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings in many ways. I enjoyed his novel and his resolution. You can tell that he is a new writer, the characters and description were a bit shallow, but the theme was very interesting. It is a good read. It can only be found at www.lulu.com

"The Idiot" By Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Author of "Crime and Punishment" this later work was written with the purpose of showing the Christ-like picture of a beautiful and faultless man. I am still working on this one, but will update when my mind is made up.
