Captains Courageous

by Rudyard Kipling

This story is exciting, a real page turner. My emotions ran up and down with the charaters' fortunes and misfortunes. I live near Gloucester, Ma. It seems that Kipling gives us a thorough look at the lives and deaths of the men who work the most dangerous peacetime profession.

by Bram Stoker

this is a work of extrapolative science fiction made more interesting by the fact that some of the extrapolations were accurate. I especially like the part when Mina offers to index and cross reference Dr. Seward's edison cylinder recordings of his notes.

This book is not written in any kind of obtuse victorian tongue. It is an easy read.

I read this story to two of my three children when they were young. It is not as scary as some of the dreck on television. Then we had fun watching 5 dracula movies to campare the story lines and production values.
