The book to me, for the most part sounds believable. I believe the band partied extremely hard, did outrageous things, and had an incredibly good time. I don’t think any of the members lied in what they had to say, but I must point out that some of the stories, in my opinion, maybe close to what happened, but not exactly. The reason for this simply being that, with the amount of drugs and alcohol the band cosnumed on a regular basis, it would be impossible for the to exactly depict their stories exactly. A lot of the stories we are told through the book, are likely series of events, with holes in the stories,
This book is great for people who enjoy gore, suspense and a little romance. If you love to see good character cooperation and the characters in a lot of life or death situations where you really don’t know if they’ll make it or not this is the book for you. This books also shows that even the underdogs can still make a difference, and that gives us hope in life when there seems to be nothing left. Again if you love gore, suspense and a little bit of romance this is the perfect book for you, you won’t be

Everyone, Americans and Europeans alike, have heard-of, if not grown off of, a generation and culture started by an ensemble of four shaggy-haired Liverpool musicians that the world went mad over; no one can deny that no greater event impacted today's pop culture than "Beatlemania". But not everyone has heard the story behind the Beatles, who were they? How did they become the band and how did they make it big? What's the story of their struggle?
The book had a lot of hard times in the middle of the trouble like when the dome first came down the family's that had lost love ones. Page 80. A man had lost his wife from the dome coming down on the middle of the garden and right on her fingers. She could not get help because all the doctors where busy with other people in the time she died because lose of blood. In the beginning of the book junior went and killed Angie out of rage. Page 42. The people in the car wreck in the dome where running from the cops. Page 33. In the middle the people started to turn and kill for the resources to safe there live page 200. The people started to trust the people that they have never know before like the two people that showed up right before the pink stars. Page 333. I like the book because of the faith that they had to have to get through the hard times in dome. When they started to trust big Jim witch was not trusted with the Important thing for the dome. I like when they had to choose sides if they go with the two girls or not in the book. Page 350. I like the fact that they got out of the dome after a lot time of suffering and little resources to use. Page
Overall this book is good so far. Once I start reading it, I cannot put it down. It is a story that talks about the struggle of a young African-American girl named Shivana who is dealing with her poor lifestyle, going to school and being sexually active at such a young age. She is only fifteen and has been hooking up with a man who is married and has children. I found that this was so disturbing because I feel like Leroy (the married man) is using her for sex; he claims that he loves her but I am pretty sure he is doing it out of pleasure.
Cowie first express his view of good kid, m.A.A.d. city in the second sentence of the review. Cowie’s view the album as good and touching to lives of other people making it personal for everyone with the talk of self-discovery.
I really liked this book. I am really glad I read this book because I am interested in the situation between the rebels and the child soldiers. I really like the way the author wrote his book. It was sad, but there were also really happy parts. The way the author put his words together made reading the book really easy to read. For example, “ On the morning that we left for Mattru Jong, we loaded our backpacks with notebooks old lyrics we were working on, and stuffed our pockets with cassettes of rap albums.” The story is very believable. The book was easily understood as well. There were some words that he used in the book that were confusing because some of the words he uses are different from what we are used to. For example in the book, the word for sneakers is crapes. He also calls a porch, a
They faced residential segregation, substandard living conditions, job discrimination. Older black residents sometimes resented the new migrants, as neighborhoods became overcrowded and stigmatized as ghetto. The life of northerners was exciting and liberating. No constant threat of racial violence, Southern culture blended with northern black communities that inspired new forms of music, literature, and art. The Great Migration marked a significant moment in the economic, political, social, and cultural growth of modern black America. The hellfighters was a nice story and the plot was good I feel like it could have more facts from fiction, the weakness for me would be that it needed more facts. I knew that going to war as dangerous but the descriptions of the killings we a lot to take in and they were based on real events it’s hard to stomach that humans could do this to other humans but it as a nice read I’m not really a comic book fan, but I would recommend it and now the text book was ok it as good, but it didn’t keep my attention like the comic book did the chapters I read were very

“If you came here to see spandex and big hair, this ain’t your band”, Metallica’s “war cry” throughout the early eighties. While the rest of the hard rock bands wanted to get rich and a lot of women, Metallica, as in the words of former lead guitarist Dave Mustaine, “Our hole existence pretty much was guitar, dominating the world and getting liquored up”.
