A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand.

I really liked how the story was presented. The story unfolded in a series of case files and interviews as though somebody was recalling events of the past from some distant future. The interviewer is left unnamed which leaves a sense of mystery. And the multi cast works well for this presentation style. I'm looking forward to the next books!

The military, alien technology and conspiracy themes all remind me of Stargate for any other fans out there.

When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed - a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood - didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself. And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, among other issues.

A brutally honest account of her experience on motherhood yet funny and enjoyable. The author doesn't place any expectation on how women should feel or react to motherhood, rather she remains true to her own experience and feelings. I'm a new mom and thoroughly enjoyed her story.

When Sara Zaske moved from Oregon to Berlin with her husband and toddler, she knew the transition would be challenging, especially when she became pregnant with her second child. She was surprised to discover that German parents give their children a great deal of freedom - much more than Americans. In Berlin, kids walk to school by themselves, ride the subway alone, cut food with sharp knives, and even play with fire. German parents did not share her fears, and their children were thriving.

Variability in parenting styles

Au global
4 out of 5 stars

Évalué le: 2018-02-09

This book chronicles an American woman's experience raising her young children in Germany. It is mostly a compare and contrast piece between "American" parenting styles and "German" parenting styles although the author hints that there is a lot of variability among parenting in each country and it is hard to pinpoint a single style. Her case is that a style that promotes independence in children is best.
