    "I tried to read Anne Frank's diary, but I thought that it was just depressing. The diary is obviously important as a historical document, but as a book compiled to be read by an audience it is both tedious and a big bummer."

    "If you haven't ready this book you really should. I learned lots of things from and it gave me so much to think about. It's easy to get caught up in the everyday routine and not think about things that are really important. This book helped me to think about the things I've done, the things I want to do and the things that are really important. Pausch was a professor who was given a diagnosis of terminal cancer and this book is the account of his efforts to finish out his life doing the things he wanted to do. "

    "I love women's fictional books and was looking for a new title to check out. I poked around a bit and saw this highly rated boo and thought I'd give it a try. While I don't think the book is bad, it's certainly not up to my usual standards. Overall, the book was okay but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone."

    "Othello - a drama written by William Shakespeare. How does one even begin to discuss Shakespeare - probably the most famous writer at least in Western literature. Othello is a great novel. Would it be the best for this particular theme? I don't know, but it's certainly high up on the list. "
