"I read this book hearing nothing but good things, and the fact that I never read books about the circus, gave me cause for concern. Never judge a book by its cover, I loved it! The details of circus life are so interesting, along with the plot and characters. A book I will never forget. So good I gave it to my parents to read, both in their 60's and they loved it as well."

"I enjoyed this book although it wasn't quite up to my expectations having been recommended it after finishing a Salmon Rushdie's 'Midnights Children'. There was certainly plenty of suspense and interest in the story and the author's extensive research is obvious. There are some great characters in the novel and it has a lovely ending with a twist."

"I&#8217;m ambivalent about this novel. It&#8217;s good. It&#8217;s very nice. It&#8217;s a page-turner. It doesn&#8217;t suffer the fate of many, many novels &#8212; even some of my best loved &#8212; but there was something missing.That&#8217;s a convoluted way of saying I enjoyed it but it didn&#8217;t stick with me.Plot and pacing are excellent in this novel. I often write that most books need to be shorter. Novelists seem to always come up with a great opening. Better ones have great endings. Most fail in the middle. That middle third of most novels is such a bore to me. I think it&#8217;s filler to beef up a word count. I didn&#8217;t find this in Water for Elephants at all. Gruen can structure a story and keep the pace going. That&#8217;s a terribly hard thing to do and she pulled it off wonderfully.With one glorious exception, however, the characterization fell flat for me. Did I care about the characters? Kinda. Did I care about the romance? No. What did touch me was the role of the older Jacob. How this young, female writer climbed into the head of a ninety plus year old man, I&#8217;ll never know but his thoughts and actions rang true. He was facing death but still facing life and his inner monologue caused an almost claustrophobic feeling in myself. My god, I kept thinking. This could very well be me - trapped in a body, aware that I&#8217;m losing my mind to age and, most frightening of all, without the ability to do a damned thing about it. I hope to elicit that kind of reaction in a reader one day.The parts of the novel confined to an old man doing nothing much more than sitting in a wheelchair will stick with me for a while. I may go back and read those bits at times. The parts with the trains, circus, performances, midgets, elephants, romance and violence? Not so much."

"This book is very enjoyable from beginning to end. It starts with a narration in the present and weaves in events from the narrators past. The style is fluid and non pretentious, engaging for its simplicity and character development. This book feels real when it presents its characters and you can't help but get entwined with the sentiments they live. I haven't seen the movie but I'm glad I read the book first. The story revolves around Jakob a retired circus vet which relates how he came to be involved in the circus world of the 30's and all he lived through while the show went on. The story depicts life through the depression, prohibition and society as a fitting background for the storyline."

"There is a reason that 40% of reviews of ADWD are 1 or 2 stars. As good as A Game of Thrones is wonderful this book is so uninteresting that I couldn't wait to stop reading it: picking it up now and then, like any addict, hoping for a fix that never comes or satisfies. The trajectory of this series is much like that of free falling object. If the first couple of books hadn't sucked me in I'd have stopped reading this one in the middle, much like I was quick to jettison Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time which at least kept my interest for 5 books. This much I know: If Martin ( who is as far from being an American Tolkien as the nearest blackhole is from earth) doest wrap this abomination up in book six I won't even bother to finish. I can't imagine that Martin in his heart of hearts truly believes this work comes within light years of approaching A Game of Thrones. Maybe we are expecting too much and Martin is just another one hit wonder. You can't help but wonder if he is dragging this out for the money."

"I've spent 5 months reading these books. Each book after the first becomes slow and tedious then bursts into fireworks. The big show in the last two books have not been worth it. We are introduced to too many minor characters and the characters we've come to know simply disappear, Sam for example. These books have become very unsatisfying. I don't think Martin has a clue as to how he's going to end this so he's endlessly dragging it out."

"I will preface this by saying that I love anything to do with Anne Boleyn, but I have a very low tolerance for books that disregard historical facts. That said, I'll start my review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it to be very entertaining. However, I did not like the author's portrayal of Anne. Mary seems to be the perfect character with no flaws while Anne is made out to be a terrible sister. It shouldn't have been that black and white, since life has no black and white. I also didn't like the fact that the author used the idea that Anne resorted to incest in order to get a child. This fact made Anne actually guilty of the crimes she was accused of. The author did not need to do that. The fact that Anne had a fake trial is so much more fascinating and mouth dropping, it really doesn't need any more drama. The Tudor period is so full of it, I found this just to be put in for shock value. From all of the books I've read by Gregory, I think that Gregory has a low opinion of both Anne and her daughter Elizabeth, so I'm not surprised she made Anne out to be such a vicious woman. However, she has no compassion for Anne at all and I found I was frustrated towards the end that she tried to put as much drama and shock value as she could into the novel. That said, if you're interested in an entertaining read, I would recommend this novel. Despite the fact that I disagreed with her view of Anne did not keep me from enjoying the book. Although Gregory may not be the most historically accurate author around, she does know how to tell a story that will keep you hooked until the very end. Just a warning to look things up before you take them as truth."

"As a South Asian-American I thought this book was authentic, one of the truest books I've ever read. The passages that get a bit longish for some readers seemed eerily like my own life--descriptions of things found in bedrooms, of Bengali-American parties, of people's coping strategies of being first- or second-generation American. I found that I could relate to at least two of the characters, and knew a lot of the types of the other characters from people in my own life. I wish I'd written this book.I give a lot of credit to Lahiri for producing a work that is so emotionally authentic, universal, and resonant, while solving the problem of the guilt sometimes passed around in a family. Lahiri does so without putting any of the blame for anybody's existential or cultural unhappiness on any one character. Everybody is likeable and their situations and impulses are understandable. Ashoke and Ashima are not to blame for Gogol's name, since he picks it himself in a way and he has a problem with being distanced from it. Ashoke is not to blame for Ashima's estrangement from her family and country, because they were living poor in Calcutta and Ashima didn't find a better suitor. Just like in real life, there's often no better option in a situation, just a choice someone made a long time ago with the given inputs. No one is a villain, she just tells it like it is.Also, Lahiri wrote a book about some pretty nice people that are accepting and turn out to be good for each other in the end. If I were writing the book I'd have a lot less of this because sometimes things don't always get patched up, but I'm glad Lahiri does it differently, since with bad Bengali neighbors or children who marry outside the group and cut off ties with their family or what have you, the novel would collapse under its own weight, since there's already death and estrangement to deal with.The Mira Nair movie was also right-on."

"If you can read about horror, this is a book you should read. The ability of humans to endure psychological, physical, and social torture is truly amazing. How any of them survived to live even relatively normal lives after the war is almost unfathomable. The quality of writing is balanced, detailed, and not overly emotional. What a story- that is true. Her comments about the importance of dignity for survival is something we should all think about in our daily lives."

"Over 2,000 reviewers have written about how great this book is. And, yet, I'm compelled to write and chime in with the rest of them. This book is great. Laura Hillenbrand is a writer who stuns you. When I read Seabiscuit, I felt like I was the jockey. In this book, for better or for worse, I felt like I was with Louie in the raft, at the prison camp and in the audience during the tent revival that changed his life. I am going through some stressful times right now and this book was just what I needed to give me some much-needed perspective. Thank you Louis Zamperini. Your life continues to be an inspiration."

"...is a lifetime of stories that most of us will never know about. Then a skilled writer like Laura Hillenbrand comes along, hears those stories and the result is "Unbroken".Louie Zamperini's experience as a WWII POW is told in such graphic, harrowing detail there were times I had to put the book down. There were times I wanted to walk away completely but I had to know about the kind of cruelty human beings are capable of and how one extraordinary man survived that experience.In a world where any sane person would have been justified in committing suicide, Zamperini endures. And endures. And endures. Beyond the limits of the imagination.It's been a year since I read "Unbroken" and the story will haunt me the rest of my life.Inside each human being are stories we will never know. Then a gifted writer shapes those experiences into a narrative that leaves its mark on anyone lucky enough to read it.This was not an easy or entertaining story but it was a privilege to read. My life is richer because of the experience."

"Sequels to stand out debuts often struggle to advance the series plot and recapture the magic of the first book. INSURGENT isn't one of those sequels. It's as powerful or even more powerful than it's predecessor. And considering how phenomenal DIVERGENT was, that's no small compliment.One of the most inventive and action packed dystopian series ever, INSURGENT picks up almost immediately after the end of DIVERGENT. The factions that dictate every aspect of society are in danger and all out war seems inevitable. Tris's faction has ben split as too many members have turned traitor. Power hungry Erudite have set their sights on the Divergent, like Tris, systematically rounding them up to kill...and worse.What continues to impress me with the Divergent series is the character arcs. They are magnificent. Tris transformed from the almost Amish-like Abnegation member to a brave and confrontational Dauntless member so convincingly in DIVERGENT, and her transformation in INSURGENT is no less impressive. After the tragic choice she made at the end of DIVERGENT, Tris is plagued with guilt, self recrimination, and shame. She isolates herself even from those she cares about the most. It's heartbreaking to read. And Tris isn't the only one who evolves in the book. Characters who I thought were villains became heroes, and characters who I thought were trustworthy became villains. Shocking doesn't begin to describe it.The beginning of INSURGENT was a little slow and not as easy to jump into as the debut, especially since the worldbuilding isn't really recapped for readers (like me) who could have benefitted from a refresher. But once I got my bearings, and the central conflict was revealed, INSURGENT was as compulsively readable as DIVERGENT. And the revelations at the end were almost overwhelming--in a good way--considering their implications. Bottom line, this is a series not to be missed. The stakes just keep getting higher and I can't wait to dive into the third book in the Divergent series when it comes out in 2013.Sexual Content:Kissing"

"The only reason I ordered the collector's edition was to read "Free Four" which did not disappoint. This book, however, was not as good as Divergent.I liked Divergent more because Tris was goal oriented and very strong. In Insurgent, she was actually kind of annoying. I understand her guilt and grief over the death of Will and her parents, but I feel like if she just would have talked with Tobias or someone else, that might have helped relieve her earlier instead of carrying it the whole story. Maybe that also could have helped her get over her fear of guns. Also, it seemed like her and Tobias got into stupid fights. I just wanted them to stop being angry and get over it.This book wasn't bad, I just wasn't as impressed with it as I was with the first one. The ending was pretty abrupt, but interesting. Also kind of confusing. Not sure if I will get the next one or not."

"Usually when books have really good reviews, I liked it too. So I'm not sure what went wrong with this series. I found them to be so cliche (think Matched, The Maze Runner, etc.) and the writing was not captivating enough. I feel no connection to Tris; she's a weak character and inconsistent in my opinion about when she wants to be moral/good or bad. I'm surprised to learn that this series has been optioned for a film, but hey, if you haven't read like every other dystopian YA novel out there, you may not have much to compare it to."

"I loved the first book so this was a little bit of a let down. It answered some questions from the first book and gave you a few conclusions to some of the story-line that was left hanging. Over all I struggled to re-engage with the characters. The repetition of Tris being immature, running off on tangents with horrifying ramifications and over all being annoying were frustrating. The love/hate relationship got old fast. A lot of filler and setting up for the next book. Had I known where the story was going I would have been satisfied stopping with the first book. I have already bought the third so I will read it but I don't have high expectations for a story that started out so well. I would consider stopping after the first book."

"Setting the Scene &#8211; Insurgent starts with a bit of quiet after the storm that had Tobias aka Four and Tris running for their lives in the wake of the Erudite initiated, Dauntless executed massacre in the Abnegation district. Their hope for a little peace and quiet in with the Amity faction is short lived, forcing them to join forces with the FactionIess. Not going to spoil any of the good stuff here but suffice it to say they begin a trek to figure out who they really are and where they all came from. This book won&#8217;t really answer those questions &#8211; which I&#8217;ll talk about in a subsequent review.A Few Thoughts &#8211; Like Divergent, Insurgent has a ton of action and some interesting young adult themes on loyalty and interpersonal relationships. Because I&#8217;m 42 the latter is a bit of a bore but younger readers might relate to some of the challenges people face in the midst of ethical dilemmas, and balancing loyalty with self-preservation or sacrifice. Not a stand-alone novel at all but one you should read if you liked Divergent because Roth does a great job setting up Allegiant, the third and final book in the main story. Her writing is consistent with the first book and it kept me interested enough to move on to the finale &#8211; that&#8217;s good enough for 3.8 stars.Tom Clementson (MotleyChronicles.com)Be sure to take a moment and leave your feedback and comments about the book on Amazon and goodreads."

"Insurgent takes off where Divergent ended. We follow Tris, Four, Caleb and many others through this war against the Erudite and the Dauntless traitors. This war gets complicated though and you don't know who to trust. Some people are not who they seem. The romance is there, although hardly. Tris and Four/Tobias have some power struggles throughout this book though luckily there is no love triangle (I'm getting pretty sick of those).I love this book because of the strong female leader-Tris and there are many other strong characters. The choices that Tris has to make are insane and the things that her and her friends go through in this novel are epic.This book was just as good as Divergent. Make sure you have some free time before starting this novel because it is hard to put down."

"&lt;b>4/5 HEARTS review from [...]&lt;/b>&lt;b>&lt;u>BEWARE: Spoilery Review!&lt;/u>&lt;/b>On the morning that Allegiant came out, I had a copy of it on-hold at my local Barnes and Noble, but when I woke up at 5 a.m., I just couldn't wait any longer for it, so I set off on a trek that led me to three stores (Meijer, Walmart, and Target) before I finally found it at Target, hours before B&N; would have even opened it. I was 75% of the way through the book by the time I would've been checking out at B&N.;Allegiant made my mind melt. Literally, it just broke me. The ending was so unexpected and I couldn't start or finish any other books for weeks because I was just so hungover. I am now suffering from what I like to call Allegiant-related PTSD which makes me extremely nervous about the final book in any trilogy.But ... now that it's been months since I finished the book, I can honestly say that it was a fulfilling book and one that took a lot of bold choices. The ending was extremely fitting for Tris and her character.It broke me in all kinds of way, it emotionally crippled me, and it is still one of those fictional deaths that I think of every day and my heart just sinks. She's a character I miss. Knowing that her fictional soul isn't still out there in the fictional world hurts my heart.But the book was beautifully written, extremely captivating, well-paced, and left an impression in my mind and footprints in my heart. The ending was brave, just like Tris was, just like Veronica Roth is and encourage her readers to be. I have made my peace with that ending.I gave it a four hearts rating, due only to the fact that I felt like the epilogue was extremely rushed and that there's still just a bit of me that wishes Tris didn't have to die to achieve the ending. But I devoured the book and I would still recommend the entire Divergent experience to other readers."

"I really enjoyed Divergent and Insurgent. Unfortunately, Veronica Roth ruined this series with this book. Now, I'm hesitant to recommend this series to others. I think that she wanted to create a trilogy out of a story that would have been better as a 2 book series. As far as Allegiant goes there were several issues:First, the setting is stupid. I see where she was going but it was dumb. I really wish she had gone a different direction with this.Second, Tris and Tobias' relationship has gotten odd. It's the central idea to the plot now, not just a component. Not only that, but its not even a good romance.Third, this book alternates between Tobias and Tris's perspectives. It turns out that those two have the same narration. If it weren't for the title at the beginning of the chapter and talking about the other person, you wouldn't know who the narrator was.Lastly, this book left plot holes everywhere. I'm okay with some and I can live with issues, but so many clear issues are annoying.As others have mentioned, I think Veronica Roth had a responsibility to her readers but she did not live up. What a bummer! But like many of you, I had invested myself into the other two books and decided that I just needed to know how it turned out. But I'd say save your time and read the spoiler blogs."

"I found this finish to the series pretty good, but not really great. I was glad there was an actual explanation as to what happened to cause this situation in the first place. However, I was somewhat disappointed in a few aspects of the story. Most people will be upset at the ending. Not getting the &#8216;happy ending&#8217; you want tends to do that to most, however I for one think it would not have worked any other way. I was somewhat disheartened to find out they were in an experiment and there was the rest of the world outside the town. Based on many things mentioned in the first two books, I had this as a theory of what they were and I find being able to predict this plot twist a bit of a letdown. I mean, that has been done so many times, I was really hoping I was wrong. That being said, the actual story of how the group gets out of the town (that most of us already knew was Chicago) is very exciting and has a good pace. The conflict of the folks from the town against what they are being told is well done. As the outside reader, you know there is an angle to everything they are being told but see the struggle of Tris & Four trying to figure it out.My major disappointment with this one is the more in the way it was written. I have read several books from dual points of view. In every one of them, you can usually tell which person POV you are reading from. Sorry to say, there were many (and I mean many) times I had to remind myself or figure out from other parts of the page whose POV it was. The tone, word choices, etc. are usually different between characters in some way, especially when you have one male and one female. Different ways of thinking, acting, etc. are one of the ways used to tell the reader about the character. It seems like this was not held to the higher writing standards of the original book. Yes, I know this is for YA readers, however I still expect better of the writer than this."

"The audio version is spectacularly good. I listened to all but the last few chapters, then read those last chapters on an iPad, then listened to them on CD. The narration adds a lot. The story is riveting. It's full of surprises. But the narration really adds another dimension. I enjoyed the first two books, and I wondered if the third could measure up. No need to worry. Just like we are still reading Charles Dickens, in 200 years they will still be reading Allegiant. It's not flawless, but it's awesome."

"I know there are several reviews critiquing the ending of this book but I feel like the ending gave justice to Tris's character. Her story ended on her terms; brave, selfless, and full of love. Although it is very sad, I may have been disappointed if it ended the way all the other books in recent popular media usually do.ETA: Now that I have more time to add to this, I have to agree with other reviewers in saying that it is hard to distinguish who is narrating since it is written so similarly between Tris and Tobias's perspective from chapter to chapter. I would find myself forgetting who was narrating in the middle of a chapter sometimes but I did appreciate getting to hear things from Tobias's point of view. I feel like Tris and Tobias had a really rough break since everything they ended up involved in was crooked and so to hear that the government outside the fence was also corrupt was a bit of a let down to me. However, I do see where the author needed conflict to keep the story interesting. I was entertained throughout the whole book. I also really appreciated grammar and editing in this series. Of the three books, I only noticed one error in grammar (which I believe was in the first book) which is refreshing these days."

"The final book in the Divergent Trilogy left a lot to be desired... That being said, the book wasn't necessarily bad and I feel that most fans of the series will ultimately be at least satisfied with the trilogy's ending. (In other words, it could have been a lot worse.) There's not much I can say about the story without giving too much away; the action and intrigue that comprised the first two books is still present in Allegiant. Also present is the ensuing romance between Tris and Tobias. Despite having the core elements that made up the first two books, there were a few things that I took issue with in Allegiant...For one, this book is told from the perspectives of both Tris AND Tobias. I was initially very excited about this aspect of the book. However, I just feel that this idea was better in theory. The dual perspective was not executed very well. There was no real distinction between the voices of Tris and Tobias. If you were to open to a random page and read it you would not be able to distinguish who was speaking (except for use of pronouns, names, etc.). I feel that Roth should have spent more time developing a clear voice for Tobias instead of using the same writing style she's used for Tris's voice.I was also a little disappointed about what was &#34;beyond the fence.&#34; Don't get me wrong, it was interesting and thought-provoking, but... I just expected more! I feel like the explanation for the secrets behind Tris's world were just very bland (for lack of a better word). The previous two books were just so mind-blowing that I expected the same sort of pizzaz from Allegiant, but it just wasn't there.Despite these errors, Allegiant really is a decent ending to the trilogy. Even though it doesn't necessarily end the way you want it to. However, its flaws keep it from entering the realm of 5-star books like its predecessors, Divergent and Insurgent."

"This book is my least favorite of the trilogy. Tris and Four have the same inner voice to me so it was hard to tell which one was narrating the chapter until I saw a reference to the other. I had a really hard time following the Bureau portion (which is 85% of the book). I thought it was contrived a bit. I like the idea of where Veronica Roth was going with it, but it wasn't fleshed out all that well in terms of the trilogy. It could have been another book altogether. Too many new people were introduced. Four becomes an insecure pansy. Of course, maybe he always was and we just saw him how Tris sees him in the previous books. Being in his head as the narrator of some chapters gave us another side of him. I would like to think he and Tris finally had sex as it was insinuated. Especially since the intimate scenes up till now have been very powerful. VR leaves it to the imagination. I imagine 11 & 12 year olds (hopefully) will think it was more of the same, while the more mature readers will infer more. The ending, although surprising, almost made me not want to read the book. I did and was pleasantly surprised how much I loved it. I cried even though I knew it would end that way. I think I cried more because of the way Four reacted. Worth finishing out the series by reading this book, but don't expect to be blown away like you were with the first two."

"After Insurgent, the story picks up with Tris in trouble and Evelyn in control of the city. Soon, Tris, Four and some others choose to leave Chicago and pursue the meaning of the Edith Prior video. Most of the remaining story takes place inside a special facility a short drive from Chicago, where we find out what the story is about Chicago and the factions, as well as what it really means to be divergent. Three-quarters of the way into this story, I was very disappointed. It felt like the author was just going through the motions, and frankly, the story was boring and dull--lots of talking and philosophical introspection, but not much plot movement. The last quarter of the book salvaged things for me and raised the story from one star to 3.5. No, like a thousand others, I didn't like the ending, and I didn't think the ending was necessitated in any way by the story arc. It seemed almost as if the author realized the story about to crash and burn, so she tossed in this ending to slap us in the face. HOWEVER, the ending was well done and beautifully written, and it was quite evocative. I thought the writing went from passable and average to excellent and gripping. BUT, I'm only at 3.5 stars because the ending doesn't really fit the overall trilogy IMO. So, for those that want a 'they all lived happily ever after' ending, don't read this book. Stop with Insurgent and think up your own ending. For those of you, who--like Tris--aren't afraid to jump off the roof into the net below, you should read it and experience the pain. I just wish the first part of the book was written nearly as well as the ending. Yo, Tris, you...well, you know what i mean."

"I listened to this book on audible.com. I did not &#34;read&#34; the book so the voices that everyone is complaining about was AMAZING to me as on audio, they were PERFECT. Tris and Tobias were perfect on audio.I really enjoyed this series. When book 3, Allegiant came out, there was CHAOS everywhere. So many people on Facebook were trashing this book. Apparently the book did not go the way they wanted it to. So many people were talking really badly about it, refusing to read it, posting spoilers and just plain being rude.I AM SO GLAD I AVOIDED ALL THE SPOILERS! I am so glad I waited for all the hype to wear off before I listened to this book. I read book 1 and listened to book 2 on audio. I was really looking forward to book 3 and I was not disappointed by book 3. I love how author Veronica Roth ended the series and love how she followed her heart. Even though she may have not appealled to all of her readers, she did what she felt was best for her storyline and her characters.I am not going to go into any detail of the book as I refuse to post any spoilers. I was hanging on every word of this book. I absolutly loved it and to be honest with you, I cried in more than one part of this book. Some of the times were not even parts one would expect!Congrats Author Veronica Roth on an AMAZING series!!!!!"

"If you begin to read a book and the first two pages are set aside for an apology from the author for writing about secondary characters throughout, you might want to reconsider.It's amazing that even George Martin realized what he was doing was going to frustrate and infuriate readers. It made me wonder what the makers of the television series based on the books are going to do in season four. Good luck, guys.That being said, favorite characters included or not, the book is dull. It has a few moments of flash, but it feels like a place-keeper to me -- Martin just writes about the day-do-day trudgery of life with no payoff at the end. No cliff-hanger. No momentum-turning battle.Just go on with your lives and wait until the next chapter."

"Hemingway delivered his last masterpiece with this book, a cultural phenomenon when first published in the early '50s: in an unprecedented move, Life Magazine published the novella in its entirety,recognizing that Hemingway, the most influential writer of 20th century American literature and then a world-wide celebrity, had delivered a long-awaited masterful story. The Life magazine edition sold more than 5 million copies in a week so this book reached tens of millions of people within days - not many authors can achieve that! And that's before becoming a much beloved story translated into scores of languages. It is fair to say that this book, which won the Pullitzer Prize, reignited the interest and respect for Hemingway as a serious writer and might have been the decisive factor for his Nobel Prize award.It is so disappointing when people say that story is boring and has too much simbolism... if you have experience fishing or sailing or simply appreciating the sea and nature, then the book offers a marvellous account of man AND nature (not man vs. nature). As for the simbolism, don't dwell too much on it. Hemingway himself said that the book is about "an old man, a boy, a fish and the sea", but if the story is told well enough (as it is on this book) it can mean so much more.And the story is indeed so much more, in no small part because of the inherent goodness of the old man. That's how I enjoy and interpret the book: it is a straightforward tale of an old man embracing the struggles and rewards of life with courage, dignity and still full of the human spirit. Santiago is one of the most dignified characters in Literature, and I have to say he is my favorite and a bit of a personal hero... the old fisherman strives to be the best he can be and do the best he can do... he does not complain of his living in poverty, do not blame others for anything. His spirit is big, generous, undefeated. While other Hemingway heroes might have disappointed some people by way of too much machismo, Santiago keeps all the best traits of courage, resilience and non-nonsense survivalism, while displaying more maturity and humility - perhaps reflecting the middle-age wisdom of the author (then is his fifties).Hemingway story-telling skills are at his best here. I am a big fan of his style, particularly in the short-story format, but here he is astounding all the way. yeah, the prose is deceptively simple at first, but if you pay attention we can see the craft of a master. The opening sentence alone is formidable and could only be delivered by a master of the short-story format. Ihe last sentence is also wonderful and pure Hemingway- simple but infinitely deep, and in this story hopeful and bitter-sweet.In between, Hemingway writes with uncanny power,in such a way that you can fully experience what the character is going through: first you see what the old man does, from mundane tasks and spadework to the excitement of the deep-sea hunt and the exhausting struggle, and in the process you start to think the way Santiago thinks and finally you are feeling the way he feels. It is magical if you only give it a try. Granted, it is easier to immerse into this story if you are familiar with the ways of fishing and the ocean, but in any case, when Santiago is alone in the boat looking at the sea creatures or at the night-sky... I guess the recognition of the infinite solitude of human condition, mitigated by the bonding with the life and the world around us, that is truly universal.I am so glad that such a sweet, simple, timeless story became the classic that it is. You have to try this one too!"

"Hemingway is a great story teller. This is a simple book about an old fisherman who goes out to sea after so many days without a catch. This books is so simple and beautiful. It was Hemingway's last masterpiece.For Whom the Bell Tolls has been one of my favorite books and in my opinion his best. Old Man and the Sea is a great reminder of just how great of a story teller Hemingway was.There's no need going into the plot, just sit back and enjoy this short novel about a man and a fish (i know that doesn't sound exciting, but it's great)"

"Sissy Spacek takes one of the great American southern novels, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee to an even more sublime level by perfectly becoming the narrator of the novel, Scout Finch. Scout is only eight years old and the Great Depression is ongoing in Maycomb, Alabama. Her father, Atticus, is a pivotal man in their town as he is the fairest lawyer in town. Spacek does all the voices of these remarkable characters and they come even more alive for us. The Finches are fortunate in this town as they are making it through the Depression in genteel if not affluent fashion. The town is made of people like the Finches; and then what would be known today as poor white trash; and finally the blacks who still have decades to wait for racial equality to appear. However, small town America provides certain basics in the 1930s. No one starves or is homeless yet vivid inequalities exist. Also, disabilities are kept in your own home, shuttered up so that other people can't see your differences. Boo Radley is one of these different, disabled people and Scout is fascinated by him as the Radleys live on her street. Boo will come to intersect with a terrible legal injustice which occurs in the town, a rape trial with a black man as the defendant and a poor white trash girl as the accuser. Atticus Finch is the black man's lawyer. But this novel is about so much more than a trial. Lee and Spacek nail the universal frailties and strengths of all of us as human beings in her novel. Those haven't changed one iota between the Great Depression and present day. I enjoyed the movie and the novel when I was a kid and I did not revisit the work until recently as this audiobook. It was a wonderful way to experience it all again in a new medium. If anyone who resists reading needs to learn this book for school, this audio version could be the perfect solution."

"I'm new to Neil Gaiman, having only read "Good Omens" before, about four years ago. With "American Gods" I might become inspired to truly dive into this author's rich body of work. This book has a very creative treatise. Old pagan gods still live on as destitute characters in the real world, as long as a few isolated pockets of people still venerate them. Meanwhile, really old gods that are completely forgotten by humanity have disappeared into oblivion. The major religions couldn't even obliterate these decrepit old pagan gods for good, but the real gods of modern America may finally do it - the harsh gods of money and technology. The straight man in the novel is a hapless ex-con named Shadow, who eventually realizes that the bizarre characters he keeps running into are those decaying pagan gods who need his help in their struggle. Shadow also eventually bumbles into the realization that these gods are allying themselves with him for a greater purpose. The concepts behind this book are indeed fascinating and highly creative. Unfortunately the book must be docked one star because the action peters out towards the end, and the anti-climax takes way too long wrapping up a bunch of boring subplots. But still, Neil Gaiman is clearly one of the modern masters of innovative, speculative fiction."

"Slaughterhouse Five was the beginning of Vonnegut's black humor, train-of-thought writing.His ability to jump from one time and event to another is uncanny, and his perception of life and people unique. Here are our favorite science-fiction writer, Kilgore Trout, and the wealthy and lonely Eliot Rosewater. And more. Vonnegut's characters reappear in his works and give us new insight into our own turbulent and confusing lives."

"The best thing about this book is: it is so simple to read and understand, and hence easy to remember. The concepts laid down are so simple, and yet sometimes surprising. Mr. Collins did not complicate the findings, and use very simple terms and stories to illustrate his findings. Since the results are driven from detail researches, it adds certain credibility to the overall framework. Ignoring the notes of the researches, the book only has +200 pages. This is a must read of even the most busiest executives."

"My husband and I have been weaning ourselves from fast food for a long time. Mostly it's because I've discovered home-cooked food and how much more filling it is than eating out all the time and another reason is that we have two small children ~~ we want them to eat nutritious meals before getting hooked on fast food. Another reason is that when we were kids, we were taken to McDonald's as a special treat ~~ it was a big deal to eat out then.I wish I hadn't read this book because I took my sons to McDonald's the other night to celebrate their first Christmas program ever ~~ and throughout my meal, I kept having visions of what this author was telling in his book. I probably won't stop eating at fast food restaurants, but I won't be a big time consumer in the future.I have never read Upton Sinclair's book ~~ but would like to eventually since Schlosser shared a few pieces from that book. I am honestly appalled by the meat packing plants and their lack of concern. I am appalled by what animals eat ~~ and what is being processed into our food. I am appalled but not surprised.Schlosser writes a very thorough study on how fast food (namely McDonald's but there are others) have changed the economy ~~ not for good either ~~ and how it has a long-reaching impact on everyone's lives today. He writes of the meat-packing plants, diseases that have been discovered and the unsanitary practices ~~ things behind the scene that most people don't realize. There are a lot of politics involved in the whole process of what goes in our food and our animals ~~ and while others might find this book bashing the whole fast food industry, I didn't. I found it interesting and disturbing how it changed the whole economic landscape of our country. Schlosser has written positive things about different companies or executives ~~ but mainly, he writes passionately and in some cases, dispassionately, about this whole epidemic of fast food eaters.Like I mentioned, I won't stop eating some fast food, but this book has disturbed me enough to start thinking of changing my eating habits ~~ mine and my family's. I highly recommend reading this book just for the sheer volume of facts and history behind the food industry. It's better to be informed. Not only is it informative, it is interesting. This is your food and should be an impartial issue, but it's not. And that is just the beginning of a very informative read.12-9-05"

"The reason I do like this book is simple: the best economics is all about practical theory and applications, the original economists were trying to solve very simple problem such as how to keep people from abusing the common, is there enough food to go around, etc.But, there are several problems with his book:The writing style/prose editing suggest readers with a short attention span, every time I get started on a topic it switches to another topic (the chapters have several subtopics and points seamlessly intermixed). The author's self-awareness of their success from the 1st book is painfully aware in this one, the sequel. For those in the sciences it is well known that a thesis is only as good as the data collected; and much of the authors data is from small sample sizes they go on the claim as irrefutable law (most contentious is the abortion and the crime rate correlation from the 1st book), which makes their hypothesis always...questionable; and for those critical of the Freakonimics series is their main argument against them.In the end the book does what they probably intend, makes economics a philosophy relevant for the masses again. This book presents people with material for conversation and debate after dinner with friends and family. No longer something for government committees and corporations board of directors, economics is back to its practical roots. Bit these books are just that, not necessarily critical study but contrary based investigation of some interesting and important questions, insisting that dialogue and further inquiry of the selected subject matters occur."

"In a remote part of Wisconsin, Gar Sawtelle, his wife Trudy and their young son, muteEdgar makes a living breeding and training dogs. Edgar has developed a unique special relationship with Almondine, one of the family dogs; the pair communicates in a way that his parents are unable to do with their son.The family is contented although the work with the canines is hard. When Gar's brother charming brother Claude comes home the family dynamics change but not in a positive manner. Soon after his arrival Gar dies and the silent Edgar is unable to call for help. He is filled with remorse and guilt making his grief even more difficult. However, he soon believes his father was murdered by his uncle who has spent an exorbitant amount of time with his mom. Fearing he may be next, Edgar flees accompanied by his best friends Almondine and two other dogs.Hamlet is brought into modern day Wisconsin as readers feel the destiny of tragedy will occur from the moment Claude arrives and after that happens, a sense of a second calamity once Edgar concludes his uncle killed his father to eliminate the sole barrier to his mother. Readers will be spellbound by David Wrobleweski's retelling of the classic as the key cast comes alive especially the mute Edgar who readers get to know by his thoughts and his communication with Almondine (sort of in some ways like the Ghost). This is a fascinating winner, but at 566 pages set aside some time.Harriet Klausner"

As the little known &#34;true story&#34; of Jesus' missing years (from 2-30), his best friend Biff tells what actually happened during the missing years--quirky, irreverent, yet tender, this is a terrific novel."

"The book is divided into 12 months of tackling different aspects of happiness and developing the disciplines to develop more satisfaction and peace in life. The book is not fast paced, but introspective and thought provoking. What if small, insignificant changes could create significant boosts in overall happiness? It is worth a read and your own experimentation over time. I suggest reading it a bit at a time so you can try some of the things she suggests. There is an underlying theme that life is pretty easy for her to start with, but that could be said about most of us!"

"Despite having nearly everything going for it, Delirium rarely engaged me as a reader. And yet, I am going to rate this a strong 4 stars because I can see why this series has appealed to so many. Author Oliver has a unique ability to write about common people, giving them personality and life. For once, a story about love isn't soppy or cheesy. And the reader really does want to root for the characters and see them together in the end.Story: Lena lives in a part of America where emotions, specifically love, have been controlled through a surgical procedure. It was done to keep society peaceful and placid and stop the 'delirium' - the love 'disease'. But when she meets Alex, a boy supposedly 'cured', everything changes. Suddenly, Lena doesn't want to get the procedure done on her 18th birthday. But in this America, choice isn't an option and she will lose all she feels for Alex forever if she goes in on her birthday.Delirium is a slow burn story with most of the action near the end. It's a girl-meets-boy story, a little Romeo and Juliet in a world that doesn't allow romance. But the angst of forbidden love isn't the story so much as Lena awakening from torpidity into emotion. Since the story is all first person POV, we see Lena's change unfold organically through her interactions with Alex.Side characters aren't left bereft and given as much personality as our protagonists. From best friend Hana to Lena's adopted family (her mother committed suicide due to the love 'disease'), each person is distinct and doesn't fall into the cardboard character cliche. All the same, Alex was a bit too good for my taste, lacking in nuance and enough quirks to distinguish him beyond idealized love interest.So why did Delirium fail to engage me personally? I think it has to do with having read the Shatter Me series first. Both series deal with angsty emotion but I preferred the more full on emotion of Shatter Me rather than the slow burn of Delirium. It seems a shame to even compare the two books; honestly, as much as I loved Shatter me, it definitely was not as well written as Delirium. The strength of Delirium is Oliver's writing and characters.As with most YA dystopian, the premise is pretty bonkers and doesn't hold up to close scrutiny (I felt the same way about Oliver's Panic setting). But Delirium is all about the awakening of a normal girl and a sweet love story.I listened to the Audible version of this story and the narrator was one of the best I've heard. She lives and breaths the story, not just reads it."

"The plot of the The Body Finder definitely caught me off guard, but in a good way. Violet's ability is something that I have never read about before, and I found it very fascinating. I admired her strength and how she embraced her gift. It seemed so overwhelming to me, and I was impressed with her maturity and how well she handled things. The romance between her and Jay was sweet. It was such a cute best friends to girlfriend/boyfriend story. I liked how Jay tried so hard to understand and support her even though she didn't always make the best decisions.The suspense element in this book was well done, and I found myself flying through the pages to see what would happen. It was disturbing to read the chapters from the killer's perspective, yet they definitely added to the story and piqued my curiosity about how and where Violet was going to find him. Throughout the book I was sometimes reminded that Violet was just a teenager as she didn't always think things through or plan ahead well. Nevertheless, I am interested to see where Derting will take Violet's character and her ability in subsequent books."

On a special mission, Lena has to keep tabs on a pro-Cure group that is fighting to have the Cure required starting at a younger age. This organization is not the only thing that catches Lena's eye, she also can't seem to stay away from the founder's son, Julian.Hm. I wanted to like this book. I wanted to love this book. But....I don't. Like Delirium, there isn't a lot of action but a lot happens. Lena grows into her own person and soon she is ready to infiltrate New York under a new guise. The story is told from the past and the present until the past meets up with the present. This allows the reader to watch Lena's transformation.I was disappointed that none of the characters from Delirium were present in this book, I really wanted to see Lena's reaction to them after she discovered the true meaning of love. The characters that we are introduced to are just as strong and interesting though. We first meet the ever strong Raven who really pushes Lena to be all that she can be-and more. Their interactions were interesting and endearing; I think Raven was my favorite secondary character in this book. She is so head strong but also so vulnerable with the most heart-wrenching story.Now.....I have to address something that I wish I could ignore. Julian. He is the poster child for the pro-Cure group Lena is trying to destroy from the inside. As fate would have it, they fall in love and their relationship starts to mirror that of Alex and Lena. Now because I know and love Alex I cannot accept the possibility of another boy who can hold a light to him. Because Alex and perfect. And the story seems to hint at a future love triangle which...I could definitely do without. So that's really all I have to say. It's upsetting to write about.The writing is akin to poetry. Oliver describes everything beautifully and romantically. Lena's first person point of view helps show her progression into a strong and independent woman who is taking the role of her first love.Pandemonium is not what I was expecting but Oliver never fails to create a beautiful story. I am curious to see how this will all end."

"I think the author accomplished what she set out to do in this novel, which is why I leaned toward the possibility of giving it four stars. It's light and fun, adventurous and mysterious. Comparing it to more serious YA novels isn't fair. It's not meant to be deep I think, even when it comes to characterization. And speaking of characterization, I give props to the author for making me actually like Evie even though she is all perky and pink and sparkly--so totally *not* the kind of person I can relate to. Also, the take on paranormals was unique, and there were some clever twists in the story.That said, there were times the whole perky/pink/sparkly personality of Evie went overboard for me. There were too many oh-so-perfect moments, and of course the ever-present YA fiction insta-love (although I admit it was handled better than in a lot of YA books out there). And even though I didn't expect too much depth, I did find myself a little annoyed with the lack of emotion in certain places. Just ratcheting it up *a little* would have helped. Anyway, all in all, I ended up leaning more toward three stars.Still, I enjoyed the book. The writing was pretty good, and I'd recommend it as a sit-by-the-pool kind of read (something just for fun, in other words)."

"I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with Sam Halpern and his son, the author. I had been following the quotes on facebook for months so I expected this book to be funny. What I didn't expect was for Justin Halpern to be just as brilliantly funny as his dad and to write about their relationship so beautifully. This book is hysterical but it's also touching and wise. I particularly appreciated Sam's words to his son in the last chapter about listening to what people tell you. And apparently the book just hit #1 on the NY Times bestsellers list!!...It gives me hope for humanity that this book is attracting such a huge audience.CONGRATULATIONS JUSTIN!!!!

"Well, I've been waiting for this book for quite some time and I'm very pleased with how Ms. Hand ended the series. The book is fast-paced and wastes no time giving a recap of Hallowed. I would definitely recommend reading Radiant, the e-novella first if you haven't already. It's not completely necessary, but it definitely sheds some light on certain key events in the book. I was impressed by how much the author packed into this book. All of the unresolved conflicts are finished up quite nicely. I only have a couple complaints. For one thing, I wouldn't have minded a little more Tucker. Even just one more quality scene would've made the book more complete for me. Also, the ending was predictable and a little cliche. When I was getting to the end and things were looking exciting I was half-hoping Cynthia Hand would do something daring and leave us with a fulfilling, but slightly-less-than-happy ending. But alas, another feel-good but ultimately forgettable ending. That being said, I was satisfied with how everything was wrapped up, and I thought the whole angel mythology part of the book was better executed than in the first two. I have no idea what Cynthia Hand's future plans are, but I'll definitely keep reading her wonderful writing."

# Dataset Card for subjqa

### Dataset Summary

SubjQA is a question answering dataset that focuses on subjective (as opposed to factual) questions and answers. The dataset consists of roughly 10,000 questions over reviews from 6 different domains: books, movies, grocery, electronics, TripAdvisor (i.e. hotels), and restaurants. Each question is paired with a review and a span is highlighted as the answer to the question (with some questions having no answer). Moreover, both questions and answer spans are assigned a subjectivity label by annotators. Questions such as "How much does this product weigh?" is a factual question (i.e., low subjectivity), while "Is this easy to use?" is a subjective question (i.e., high subjectivity).

In short, SubjQA provides a setting to study how well extractive QA systems perform on finding answer that are less factual and to what extent modeling subjectivity can improve the performance of QA systems.

Note: Much of the information provided on this dataset card is taken from the README provided by the authors in their GitHub repository (link).

To load a domain with datasets you can run the following:

from datasets import load_dataset

# other options include: electronics, grocery, movies, restaurants, tripadvisor


• question-answering: The dataset can be used to train a model for extractive question answering, which involves questions whose answer can be identified as a span of text in a review. Success on this task is typically measured by achieving a high Exact Match or F1 score. The BERT model that is first fine-tuned on SQuAD 2.0 and then further fine-tuned on SubjQA achieves the scores shown in the figure below.

### Languages

The text in the dataset is in English and the associated BCP-47 code is en.

"review_id": "a7f1a2503eac2580a0ebbc1d24fffca1",
"title": "0002007770",
}


### Data Fields

Each domain and split consists of the following columns:

• title: The id of the item/business discussed in the review.
• question: The question (written based on a query opinion).
• id: A unique id assigned to the question-review pair.
• q_reviews_id: A unique id assigned to all question-review pairs with a shared question.
• question_subj_level: The subjectiviy level of the question (on a 1 to 5 scale with 1 being the most subjective).
• ques_subj_score: The subjectivity score of the question computed using the TextBlob package.
• context: The review (that mentions the neighboring opinion).
• review_id: A unique id associated with the review.
• answers.text: The span labeled by annotators as the answer.
• answers.answer_start: The (character-level) start index of the answer span highlighted by annotators.
• is_ques_subjective: A boolean subjectivity label derived from question_subj_level (i.e., scores below 4 are considered as subjective)
• answers.answer_subj_level: The subjectiviy level of the answer span (on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being the most subjective).
• answers.ans_subj_score: The subjectivity score of the answer span computed usign the TextBlob package.
• answers.is_ans_subjective: A boolean subjectivity label derived from answer_subj_level (i.e., scores below 4 are considered as subjective)
• domain: The category/domain of the review (e.g., hotels, books, ...).
• nn_mod: The modifier of the neighboring opinion (which appears in the review).
• nn_asp: The aspect of the neighboring opinion (which appears in the review).
• query_mod: The modifier of the query opinion (around which a question is manually written).
• query_asp: The aspect of the query opinion (around which a question is manually written).

### Data Splits

The question-review pairs from each domain are split into training, development, and test sets. The table below shows the size of the dataset per each domain and split.

Domain Train Dev Test Total
Restaurants 1400 267 266 1683
Movies 1369 261 291 1677
Books 1314 256 345 1668
Electronics 1295 255 358 1659
Grocery 1124 218 591 1725

Based on the subjectivity labels provided by annotators, one observes that 73% of the questions and 74% of the answers in the dataset are subjective. This provides a substantial number of subjective QA pairs as well as a reasonable number of factual questions to compare and constrast the performance of QA systems on each type of QA pairs.

Finally, the next table summarizes the average length of the question, the review, and the highlighted answer span for each category.

Restaurants 185.40 5.44 6.67 60.72
Movies 331.56 5.59 7.32 55.69
Books 285.47 5.78 7.78 52.99
Electronics 249.44 5.56 6.98 58.89
Grocery 164.75 5.44 7.25 64.69

## Dataset Creation

### Curation Rationale

Most question-answering datasets like SQuAD and Natural Questions focus on answering questions over factual data such as Wikipedia and news articles. However, in domains like e-commerce the questions and answers are often subjective, that is, they depend on the personal experience of the users. For example, a customer on Amazon may ask "Is the sound quality any good?", which is more difficult to answer than a factoid question like "What is the capital of Australia?" These considerations motivate the creation of SubjQA as a tool to investigate the relationship between subjectivity and question-answering.

### Source Data

#### Initial Data Collection and Normalization

The SubjQA dataset is constructed based on publicly available review datasets. Specifically, the movies, books, electronics, and grocery categories are constructed using reviews from the Amazon Review dataset. The TripAdvisor category, as the name suggests, is constructed using reviews from TripAdvisor which can be found here. Finally, the restaurants category is constructed using the Yelp Dataset which is also publicly available.

The process of constructing SubjQA is discussed in detail in the paper. In a nutshell, the dataset construction consists of the following steps:

1. First, all opinions expressed in reviews are extracted. In the pipeline, each opinion is modeled as a (modifier, aspect) pair which is a pair of spans where the former describes the latter. (good, hotel), and (terrible, acting) are a few examples of extracted opinions.
2. Using Matrix Factorization techniques, implication relationships between different expressed opinions are mined. For instance, the system mines that "responsive keys" implies "good keyboard". In our pipeline, we refer to the conclusion of an implication (i.e., "good keyboard" in this examples) as the query opinion, and we refer to the premise (i.e., "responsive keys") as its neighboring opinion.
3. Annotators are then asked to write a question based on query opinions. For instance given "good keyboard" as the query opinion, they might write "Is this keyboard any good?"
4. Each question written based on a query opinion is then paired with a review that mentions its neighboring opinion. In our example, that would be a review that mentions "responsive keys".
5. The question and review pairs are presented to annotators to select the correct answer span, and rate the subjectivity level of the question as well as the subjectivity level of the highlighted answer span.

A visualisation of the data collection pipeline is shown in the image below.

#### Who are the source language producers?

As described above, the source data for SubjQA is customer reviews of products and services on e-commerce websites like Amazon and TripAdvisor.

### Annotations

#### Annotation process

The generation of questions and answer span labels were obtained through the Appen platform. From the SubjQA paper:

The platform provides quality control by showing the workers 5 questions at a time, out of which one is labeled by the experts. A worker who fails to maintain 70% accuracy is kicked out by the platform and his judgements are ignored ... To ensure good quality labels, we paid each worker 5 cents per annotation.

The instructions for generating a question are shown in the following figure:

Similarly, the interface for the answer span and subjectivity labelling tasks is shown below:

As described in the SubjQA paper, the workers assign subjectivity scores (1-5) to each question and the selected answer span. They can also indicate if a question cannot be answered from the given review.

#### Who are the annotators?

Workers on the Appen platform.

## Considerations for Using the Data

### Social Impact of Dataset

The SubjQA dataset can be used to develop question-answering systems that can provide better on-demand answers to e-commerce customers who are interested in subjective questions about products and services.

### Dataset Curators

The people involved in creating the SubjQA dataset are the authors of the accompanying paper:

### Licensing Information

The SubjQA dataset is provided "as-is", and its creators make no representation as to its accuracy.

The SubjQA dataset is constructed based on the following datasets and thus contains subsets of their data:

Consequently, the data within each domain of the SubjQA dataset should be considered under the same license as the dataset it was built upon.
