The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

Basically everybody here is rating the book based on their personal ideologies and how those ideologies conflict with or are supported by this book.

These people are pretty piss-poor examples of a good reviewer.

The manifesto presents an interesting set of ideas that, as we all know, did not translate too well in their actual practice. Politics are an interesting thing where there's an infinite number of problems any person can pick out of a political ideology, and there's probably a full essay dedicated to each part of an ideology and picking it apart.

Nobody's really right. You either read the damn book or don't comment on it.

Alien Cradle

by Jeff Inlo

Nice read but started losing interest about 2/3 of the way...
When he starts killing off all the interesting characters, I realized I wasn't reading the work of a master author...
Good concept and plausible characters for my money but lame ending. Could have left room for sequel, plot twists, etc.
Guess we know why it was free...

Anthem

by Ayn Rand

An interesting read by an intelligent woman, but let's be perfectly clear: one cannot cherry-pick the notions of self-interest and self-sufficiency from the Ayn Rand tree of atheist thought. All religions are based on the principles of community support and aid for the poor which Rand found absolutely repellent. If you are a religious person who is attracted to Ayn Rand's philosophy you must question either your religious allegiance or your comprehension of her writing.

The No Breakfast Plan and the Fasting-Cure

by Edward Hooker Dewey

this is an amazing book!! i have the original book from 1896 that I bought at a flea market for $2!! It is in great condition for being over 110 years old and I truly enjoy this book! Reprints are nice and keep literature from fading into oblivion but there is something to be said about holding a hundred year old book in your hands. Truly a fantastic read that reveals old ways of thinking and a world lost to time where people actually explored their world on their own instead of blindly listening to news reports.
