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).

Acts of Desperation Book Review:

Heralding the arrival of “a huge literary talent” (Karl Ove Knausgaard), Megan Nolan’s riveting debut is “a blistering anti-romance” (Catherine Lacey) about love addiction and what it does to us. Wouldn’t I do anything to reverse my loss, the absence of him? In the first scene of this provocative gut-punch of a novel, our unnamed narrator meets a magnetic writer named Ciaran and falls, against her better judgment, completely in his power. After a brief, all-consuming romance he abruptly rejects her, sending her into a tailspin of jealous obsession and longing. If he ever comes back to her, she resolves to hang onto him and his love at all costs, even if it destroys her… Part breathless confession, part lucid critique, Acts of Desperation renders a consciousness split between rebellion and submission, between escaping degradation and eroticizing it, between loving and being lovable. With unsettling, electric precision, Nolan dissects one of life’s most elusive mysteries: Why do we want what we want, and how do we want it? Combining the intellectual excitement of Rachel Cusk with the emotional rawness of Elena Ferrante, Acts of Desperation interrogates the nature of desire, power, and toxic relationships, challenging us to reckon honestly with our own insatiability.

The Power of Desperation Book Review:

What could be good about being broken? Michael Catt, innovtive pastor and executive producer of hit films Facing the Giants and Fireproof, finds treasure at rock bottom in The Power of Desperation, a book for anyone who has ever cried out for God’s strength in life’s moments of absolute weakness: “Maybe you are feeling alone, immersed in a time of darkness. I’ve got good news: God is on the verge of getting you alone with Him, so He can get the ‘you’ out of you and fill you with Himself.” Through biblical and modern stories of incomplete people whose only path to victory is through total surrender, Catt introduces yet another breakthrough concept worthy of widespread personal application. Discover the power of desperation.

Desperation Ceejay s Absolution Book Review:

This is the first of six books in the Club Wicked Cove series. Desperation is a story about Colt Fargo, the owner of Club Wicked Cove, and Ceejay Powell, a woman driven by the demons in her past to join the lifestyle in an effort to find absolution for her guilt. Colt happens upon Lady Silver involved in a scene that contravenes the ethics of his club and sets out to find what motivates her to demand such a scene each and every time, subsequently giving her an ultimatum that she must accept if she wants to remain a member of the club. The instantaneous attraction between them sends Colt on a mission to break through the wall to assuage the pain in Ceejay’s heart. In his quest, she finds the key to his guarded past and soon they are both fighting off the siege of emotions that threatens to overwhelm them. By a quirk of fate, their dark association with the mob soon jeopardizes the solace that Colt Fargo has found in obscurity in the backwater town of Jacksonville, Texas in his quest to escape the life he once led as a reluctant member of a powerful American crime family whose long tentacles are now within striking distance of reeling him back in and squeezing the life out of Ceejay Powell. This story ends in a cliff hanger ... to continue in book 2, Desperation: Colt’s Acquittal. A dark, very dark suspense thriller.

The Genius of Desperation Book Review:

If necessity has been the mother of invention throughout the history of professional football, it could also be said that desperation is the father. Rare are the football innovations that have occurred without an owner, general manager, coach, or player up against the wall and reaching for a way to succeed anyway. In this meticulously researched, lively book, Bleacher Report lead NFL scout Doug Farrar traces the schematic history of the pro game through these "if this/then that" moments—paradigm shifts in the game from 1920 through the present. More than just a book about schemes and strategies, The Genius of Desperation: The Schematic Innovations that Made the Modern NFL also tells the stories of the game's most prominent innovators, the adversities they endured, and the ways in which they learned to exceed their own expectations on the path to true greatness. Everyone from George Halas to Greasy Neale, Paul Brown to Sid Gillman, Bill Walsh to Chip Kelly is featured, as well as many more. The Genius of Desperation is a narrative arc through the history of the game as it's never been told before.

Desperation Passes Book Review:

A sex scandal, a pair of shootings, and internal racism complicate an obscure college football team's quest for an epic bowl game victory. Black alumnus/entrepreneur Arthur Allenby and white counselor Malcolm Wade, introduced in Phil Hutcheon's NOBODY ROOTS FOR GOLIATH, rejoin forces to help the CSU team to face these and other obstacles while struggling to salvage their own embattled romantic relationships. DESPERATION PASSES celebrates interracial friendships and emerging leadership opportunities for African Americans but ridicules the hypocrisy of university administrators who overpay opportunistic head coaches while ignoring the academic deficiencies of student-athletes. Readers of Nick Hornby and Tom Perrotta will revel in this allusive, racy romp, tinged with tragedy but loaded with laughs, not just for football fans, but for anyone who has butted heads with brain-dead bureaucrats or survived a heartbreak and carried a torch.

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:

When Lydia Rychner-Reich took her first breath in 1927, no one could have predicted the horrors she would face in her life. Born just before the rise of the Nazi regime in Germany, she personally experienced the atrocities of the time and shares them in this memoir for the whole world.In Desperation, Lydia recounts the harrowing story of her life under Nazi rule. The torment began in 1938 when, at the age of eleven, the Nazis deported Lydia and her family to Poland, where they struggled daily to survive in a Jewish ghetto. In 1943, the Nazis tore Lydia away from her parents, sending her to detention centers and later to toil in a slave labor camp. It was at the end of 1944 that Lydia was truly tested. The Nazis forced her and the other prisoners on the Death March to Bergen-Belsen, where she spent the remainder of her imprisonment and where she met and befriended Anne Frank.While at Bergen-Belsen, Lydia wrote and hid notes to document the horrors she witnessed. This heart-wrenching account includes photos and official documentation from the Nazi era. Of her family, Lydia alone survived the concentration camps; her parents and sisters died there. She tells her tale so the world won't forget the innocent victims.
