Cormac McCarthy's "The Road", was a good read in my opinion. I feel that the idea behind his book is genuine because it deals with something that a lot of the writers of PA literature don't touch on. How would we get through the devastation of the end of the world as we know it, let alone while also trying to care for a child in that hopeless end.? The simplicity of the book was part of its genuine and authentic feel because would there be many thoughts in a world with nothing other than daily survival? Imagine the exhaustion, the terror, and the deep sadness involved in this type of situation. McCarthy, in my opinion does a great job of portraying what it might be like to live, and care for a child in a time of apocalypse. The story has a depressed tone and seems a bit lethargic at times because I felt that the father was removed from the situation somehow, and that`s the only way he was able to keep going. It deals with survival on a whole. In an interview concerning "The Road", McCarthy states that the conversations between father and son in the book are actual conversations he had with his 11 yr. old son. His brother is a scientist who deals with astronomy and they have talked at length about the end of the world and how it might happen. I find it interesting that he leaves out the cause of the end in the book, and does not give names to the characters. He created characters that were nameless I think, because in an apocalyptic world these things might not feel as necessary because there is no society where the names would be of use. The boy and his father travel on because they are hoping to find something. The end leaves us thinking and wondering what will come next for this child with a pure heart in a world where innocence is dead... To conclude, hope and faith are at the root of this tale. The Road, has gained many mixed reviews, and is not everyone's cup of tea. If you have an interest in PA literature you are likely to enjoy it.
I didn't buy from Amazon as they want way too much for the Prime, but I thought I would share my experience with it so far.
Pros: It came neatly packaged and when I took it out I was very careful with it. It looked so thin. This thing is thin. I was expecting it to feel somewhat flimsy but it is the exact opposite. Very well built and very sturdy feeling in the hands. It is sleek and fast. Came pre loaded with Android 3.2 but within minutes of having it turned on it wanted to update. The update process took about 10 minutes for the ICS update to complete. It then updated the camera firmware about 5 minutes. WiFi strength is good. Not quite what my laptops are but better than my cell phones. I am happy with it. I can see my neighbors WiFi signals so no complaints. I usually have 3-4 bars throughout my entire house and at work. GPS works decent. It found my location and locked on within 20 seconds on the first time so no complaints there either. Battery life is excellent and the screen is beautiful. ICS lets you disable the stock apps, you cant delete them but once disabled they don't show up or run anymore.
Cons: I noticed a small amount of light bleed in the bottom left corner when it first booted. It was cold as it had been on the delivery truck all day once it warmed up to room temperature it went away. I had an issue with deleting the pre loaded music and pictures that came installed. I couldn't delete them either with the file manager or with the use of my computer. I searched and it seems to be somewhat of a common problem with the file permissions. The fix was to clear all the data and reset back to original. Worked good and no issues since. So if you are having issues deleting those files do it before load all your apps and info cause you will have to do it again. One speaker, although the sound quality and volume is good.
Overall its very good super fast sturdy and I like it better than any of the other tablets I tried. I would recommend it to others.
The Supreme Court and the rest of the U.S. Government have destroyed the 3rd and 4th Amendments in the name of fighting the "Drug War". Radley Balko has written an indictment of the government policies that have taken many lives, destroyed the trust that many had in their government and created a militarized police cadre intent on diminishing the role of the citizen in our Republic. It is a clarion call for the return to community policing. Bravo Radley Balko, Bravo!
