Criticizing a book

For me, criticizing a book is not about ego or a need to look smart, but more a matter of being disappointed if an author's lack of craftsmanship ruins my ability to get into the story and enjoy the book. I prefer authors who use English effectively (I think of George R. R. Martin and China Mieville, for example), but I can deal with workmanlike prose if it's basically correct and the ideas are strong (I think of Robin Cook as a prime example of this category). Unfortunately misused vocabulary or glaring grammatical errors can jolt me out of the story pretty quickly, and weak writing coupled with weak ideas can really piss me off. Another thing that can really ruin a book for me is if the characterizations or setting are completely implausible, not because the author intended it that way for effect but because he just did not think it through. Strong writing can make it possible to overlook this, but somehow it seems the authors I've read who really use English well usually do not make this type of mistake. But in any case, I do not call myself a fantasy or sci-fi "fan" and I am not likely to argue with fans unless provoked.

Sahara Desert

The Sahara is the biggest desert in the world. It covers nearly a fourth of the whole African continent. It extends into 12 countries and stretches 3,500 miles (5,600 km) from east to west and 1,063 miles (1,700 km) north to south. Sahara is from the Arabic word meaning desert. This desert stretches from the Red Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, and it is larger than the Mediterranean Sea. Its very low rainfall does not encourage the growth of plants, although there are a few. Some animals also live in the desert, although they are primarily small nocturnal ones, and number of reptiles. The fruit of the date palm, which can ordinarily be found in and around oases, provides a little food for the people who make the desert their home.

Funny View

Veena and Dr.Venkat Arun went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down in their tent for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Veena awoke and nudged his faithful friend awake "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Venkat Arun replied, "I see millions and millions of stars." "What does that tell you?" Veena questioned. Venkat Arun pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that here are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Chronologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful an that we are small and insignificant. Metro logically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?" Veena was silent for a minute and then spoke. "Watson, you ass. Someone has stolen our tent!

Suggestion for heavy duty caster wheels

Wheels come in all sizes and are used for an almost endless variety of applications that go far beyond the automotive sector. For example, industrial settings require special wheels that can carry super-heavy loads up to fifty thousand pounds. These heavy duty caster wheels are often custom-made from injection molded plastic or urethane. They can also be two-component wheels, e.g. with a grey iron core and a polyurethane tire. Industrial casters often have to be shock absorbing, because heavy loads are often dropped into dollies. Even short drops can put a lot of stress on the wheels. Compound materials are designed to absorb this shock. These industrial wheels don’t get noticed much outside of the engineering profession, but without them many types of manufacturing would not be possible.

Suggestion for Nautical Wreath

We wait for summer to come with excitement and new plans, redesign our yards and flower beds arrangement, we even change our own style. It’s like a whole new life. With that said, our homes can look a bit dull when summer comes, even if we clean it from all the past winter’s clutter, our homes still require some refreshment. As one of the options I suggest redesigning the interior just a bit. For example, just adding a little coastal accessory can create this extra summer feel at home. You can change scented candles to fresher, infused with North Atlantic breeze, arrange some exquisite sea shells in the living room, add marine pictures or photographs from your past vacations. Anything that can put your family and you in the mood for summer! And a little finishing touch – a nautical wreath. It will set the special summer mood starting right at your door.
