Desperation Book Review:

“The terror is relentless” (Publishers Weekly) in Stephen King’s #1 national bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem… Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman. There’s something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know—though it scares him nearly to death to realize it—so are the forces summoned to combat them. “Stephen King’s knack for turning the stray junk of pop culture into sick, darkly engrossing thrills has rarely been this much in evidence as in Desperation” (Salon).

Desperation in Desperate Nation Book Review:

This book is about a German family starting in 1805 and ending in 1945. It is written from a German point of view. I am a historian who really enjoyed learning European and Military history. So, I thought it would be interesting to write a story about a family and to witness history through their eyes. Also, this story is more than just this family there is a mysterious personality that they meet and intertwine with. This new character is raised by this family and takes on a leadership role within this family. This story is more than good and evil, it involves the reasons why we go to war and the moral decisions that we have to live with.

DESPERATION Book Review:

What happens when an inhabited planet is about to become uninhabitable? Do the inhabitants just accept their fate and die with dignity? Or do they abandon their planet like rats leaving a sinking ship? Common sense would dictate that a slim chance at survival is better by far than no chance at all. One only has to look at our own medical community to see how far they will go to buy a cancer patient just a few more months of life. Most times, the quality of that life is not even an issue. It does not matter how painful or wretched that life may be, as long as there is more of it. Thus, when the time came, the Colony Ship “Desperation” was launched. With only sublight capability and no clear destination it headed out into the great unknown with the philosophy that “anywhere is better than here.” This book is made up of excerpts from the Captains log of the Colony Ship “Desperation.” It covers a span of almost 1700 years from the time of its launch to the present, when they stumble across a secret that has evaded mankind ever since Noah sailed his Ark.

Desperation Book Review:

Desperation has set in for the Territories of the Twenty. After more than a century at war with the Hegemony, they have suffered two catastrophic defeats: the loss of their main uranium source for their warships and their failure in destroying the Hegemony's main base. In desperation, Admiral William Savage takes a third of the fleet to parts of the galaxy unknown to the Territories. Arriving in Lonsation space, Savage finds it has been taken over by the Hegemony and in order to take advantage of their uranium supplies, he must free Lonsatia. But do so, he may have to reveal his cybernetic powers as he battles his cyborg brothers exiled long ago for attempting to take over the galaxy. The missing fleet does not go unnoticed by the Hegemony, and plans are made to invade the capital of the Territories of the Twenty, Veloxora, while part of its defending fleet is missing. Will Admiral Savage be able to save the Lonsation Colonies, and will there be a home for him to return to at Veloxora?

Quiet Desperation Book Review:

With standardized testing and predetermined subgroups garnering the attention of educational leaders, abused and neglected children have fallen deeper into the crevice of the system. For years these children have been ignored, save the obvious, visible bruises or child-initiated confessions. Because researching children is difficult without parental consent, it is nearly impossible to expose this problem with any level of legitimacy. By combining research from scientific research and the humanities, autobiographical flashbacks fuse with narratives that vividly detail the author's disturbing encounters with abused children as a school administrator. The effect is the realization that public schools unknowingly feed on weaker children beneath the awning of accountability.

The Desperation of Liberty Book Review:

After fleeing from the ruthless Spanish General Morillo who has orders to execute any of the rebels they can find, Santiago, Maribel and Esteban make a long journey over the mountains, across the Magdalena River and then high up into the Central Range of the Andes to a small town called Rionegro. There, they begin their dream of having a horse ranch and a family. The call of independence is still strong and Santiago takes a group of men from Rionegro and joins Captain Cordoba and General Bolivar along the Orinoco River in Venezuela. Bolivar’s forces made up of ferocious Llaneros are led on a desperate 21 day march through swamps, plains and snow capped mountains. Surprising the Spanish with his arrival, Bolivar’s forces gain the independence of New Granada at the Bridge of Boyacá. A precocious toddler and another on the way keep Maribel busy in Rionegro as she awaits the return of Santiago. Both the dream and the family are growing. Maribel desperately hopes that Santiago will return in time to help her bring their new addition into the world.

An Archaeology of Desperation Book Review:

The Donner Party is almost inextricably linked with cannibalism. In truth, we know remarkably little about what actually happened to the starving travelers stranded in the Sierra Nevada in the winter of 1846–47. Combining the approaches of history, ethnohistory, archaeology, bioarchaeology, and social anthropology, this innovative look at the Donner Party’s experience at the Alder Creek Camp offers insights into many long-unsolved mysteries. Centered on archaeological investigations in the summers of 2003 and 2004 near Truckee, California, the book includes detailed analyses of artifacts and bones that suggest what life was like in this survival camp. Microscopic investigations of tiny bone fragments reveal butchery scars and microstructure that illuminate what the Donner families may have eaten before the final days of desperation, how they prepared what served as food, and whether they actually butchered and ate their deceased companions. The contributors reassess old data with new analytic techniques and, by examining both physical evidence and oral testimony from observers and survivors, add new dimensions to the historical narrative. The authors’ integration of a variety of approaches—including narratives of the Washoe Indians who observed the Donner Party—destroys some myths, deconstructs much of the folklore about the stranded party, and demonstrates that novel approaches can shed new light on events we thought we understood.
