I am definitely not the type of person to sit around and read books all day. So many books are available to read, but one book has really stood out to me. A Separate Peace was one of the best books I have ever read. This book holds a lot of surprises, which seem to be realistic in modern times. I was e...

Filed under A&E, Courier Top Review

All is Lost is a mostly silent movie about a man who is stuck on a boat and the struggles he goes through while on the boat. I’m normally not a big fan of silent movies, but this was quite the exception. Throughout the entire movie I could relate my life to the man’s life and feel how the man was fee...

Filed under A&E

Erich Remarque’s world famous anti-war novel All Quiet on the Western Front depicted the horrifying truths of the war, and it described how the war mentally destroys a man even if he does survive it physically. It was released in 1929, which was unfortunate for Remarque because Adolf Hitler rose to...

Filed under A&E

Everybody has a love for a certain genre. Popular genres vary from things like romance to sports and even mystery. It isn't very often that people will find a book, let alone an entire series, that contains a little bit of just about every genre. That is exactly what Harlan Coben did in the 2011 Mickey Bo...

Filed under A&E

Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, said Macbeth. William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury derived from this saying; however, the sound and the fury of the Compson family derived from something much more than a Shakespearean play. In fact, the sound and the ...

Filed under A&E

I was going to write this article entirely about how to write comedy. I planned to tell you what it’s like writing comedy, but I realized something important: you can’t teach somebody to write comedy. Certain basic principles, rules, and morals must be applied, but there aren’t many concepts to...
