  • Susan "Susan" - Interesting, InformativeThis was a wonderful book and I am so glad I read it. I was completely drawn in. I have a great deal of respect for Zeitoun and his family, and I also learned a lot about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and how it was handled by the US government.

    I do, however, agree with some of the other reviewers in their views about how Zeitoun was treated. It was definitely unfair, but the US was attacked by terrorists, several of whom were Syrians. I don't think the Zeitouns could expect that the government would have no reaction whatsoever, and NOT take a second look at Syrians who are here. Zeitoun was innocent but so were thousands of Americans who were killed on 9/11.
  • Mikss - Be Honest : Possibly BEST Portable Speaker EVER !I was wait for it came out over month , and finally receive it .
    I own and check many different kind of portable speakers and many different headphones from brand like : Beats,Bose,Logitech, and others .
    I was search for many month and compare so many different portable speakers around shops like Best Buy and Fry's . I was looking for something portable and compact to easy to care but with serious sound quality and also want to have room-filling sound with great base . The few speakers i was thinking of Bose Bluetooth speaker and Beats .
    Bose have serious sound quality and probably one of the best , and if you listen classic music its definitely best choice for you . Beats " Headphones if Great nothing to say , myself i own 3-4 of different one , but speaker i feel good but not that great as headphones . Beats Pill looks beautiful and portable but as i see its doesn't sound loud and have amazing base , as i said good but not great .
    Then i was look at that one and TDK A73 boombox ( very want get it , but i think to big for to always care it ) , so at the end got this one . Before i order i see they have some serious two 1.5 inch drivers + 2 3inch radiators+1 2.2 subwoofer = which is very serous things for that little thing and should make a blast when you volume it up . Also it weather proof which make it easy to care it everywhere . Nice and clean design also .
    When i receive then in the shipping box before i open then i already realize , that is a good speaker . The weight of itself not a light speaker , and as everyone know the heavier speaker having better quality and better drivers . But its not that heavy to take it around 3.6 pounds . But compare other speakers this one feels much more expensive and quality when you hold it .
    And when i payed it , trust me i was very impressed : after few years of searching best portable speaker which great quality , good price , great and powerful base and loud volume this is definitely winner.
    When i turn it to the top in my room i feel like around have a really PRO acoustic system , and not a little portable speaker .

    Cons: didn't find anything yet .

    So what i will said :
    If music for nice and clean sound for classic music maybe BOSE Bluetooth is best ,but with more price and not that good base as TDK .
    if you looking for affordable price , bluetooth portable speakers , great and strong base , loud volume , speaker fir a "little" party , serious sound and room filling sound - TDK A33 its definitely best choice , and you would not find the better option ;)
  • Nina Auerbach - Mean Anne Boleyn stronger than CromwellI liked this book a lot, especially its chilling second half--but then I'm somewhat addicted to Anne Boleyn novels. I know we're supposed to focus on Cromwell, the point of view character who gets the most text, but I found Mantel's portrait of him relatively predictable and tedious (what ruthless politician does not sentimentalize his dead-or-alive wife and children?) Still, I was intrigued enough to order Wolf Hall for my kindle, though I'd been avoiding it.
