Joe Klein có thể khá đầy đủ về bản thân, nhưng may mắn là trong trường hợp này, anh ta đã cho mình vài trang đủ để anh ta phải dành hầu hết tất cả chúng cho chủ đề của mình.

Tôi yêu phần 1. Tôi đã chán với phần 2, cho đến cuối cùng. Tôi nghĩ rằng tôi muốn nó tốt hơn nếu tôi đọc nó trong một lớp học văn. Tôi chắc chắn tôi đã bỏ lỡ rất nhiều. Các nhà phê bình là đúng, mặc dù - văn xuôi của ông là tuyệt vời. Các vở kịch về các từ rất hay, và hầu hết đều rất thú vị khi đọc.

Oh dear crap. Is Amy Meredith kidding me or what? I couldn't even finish this book. Let me just say, our main character was a fourteen-year-old girl who just came out of Junior High. And no, this is not a book for children. This is supposed to be Young Adults. Again, are you kidding me? Our main character is a superficial, idiotic girl who cares about boys, make-up and shoe-sales. And no, I'm not going to tell you she has some deeper feature, because she hasn't. All her she and her bestfriend do is gossip and talk about fashion. Then things complicate when two new guys move to their town. You see, in this town for rich kids, everybody knows everybody, no one exclused. So it's a big deal when some new face appears. So here the Amy Meredith had me laughing. Seriously girl, seriously? Two fifteen-year-old (at the max) guys trying to play the broody, hot and mysterious male leads? Please. Things complicated even more when dear main character starts seeing shadows. That's right. She sees shadows, hears weird noises, and this scares the poop out of her. Lucas, the blond new guy, tries to help her but since they're both idiotic kids what do you honestly expect them to accomplish. Okay, I didn't finish this book. I'm not even sure I reached half of it. I only know this is probably the worst read I had in 2011. Maybe in my whole life. I want to forget all about this but I'm afraid I can't. Poor me.

Ok, loved this story. The artwork is amazing and goes so well with the darker undertones to the story that just gradually creep up on you in the text; the artwork hints at it from the very beginning. The story doesn't pull any punches, either, and while I kind of foresaw the ending, it didn't diminish the way it was revealed, either. The girl I bought this from at the comic store said it was "kind of a downer." I disagree, although I saw why she might think that. For fear of spoilers I'll just say that I thought the story was more redemptive than anything else, and definitely worth reading.

Simply one of the best books ever written! Worthy of being read again and again. (I still want to name a dog Boo Radley, though...)

What, after all, is so special about genes? The answer is that they are replicators. The laws of physics are supposed to be trued all over the accessible universe. Are there any principles of biology which are likely to have similar universal validity? pg 205: para 3 Richard Dawkins' "Selfish Gene" is a book of revelations; when I read it, I constantly found myself thinking, "Wow, that's a really good point!" The book follows a logical linear progression: Dawkins makes a point, supports it with evidence, and provides an easy to understand metaphor. Dawkins' first point is that the unit of evolution isn't the individual– it's the gene. In the beginning, their was no life, their were collections of amino acids that happened to come together to form a molecule capable of forming independent, identical units. Similar to crystal structures, these original "Replicators" took in ingredients from their environment and created more molecules (the key difference between replicators and crystals being that the replicators created separate entities). As the naturally existing resources became more scarce, the replicators that disassembled competing replicators to reproduce thrived. To protect themselves, it became necessary to protect the replicators with cells and structures. This chapter does a really good job of suggesting how life could have evolved. It goes a long way in explaining the bridge between basic replicating structures and life as we know it today. In addition, it prepares the reader for the redefinition of the unit of evolution. Humanity tends to think of the human as a single entity, but according to Dawkins, we are simply carriers for our genetic material. The book goes on to show how different evolutionary strategies are either stable or unstable (or in some cases, stable only in the presence of other stable strategies) By use of various examples (bees, birds, and lion prides), Dawkins illustrates common behaviors and how they may have evolved. In addition to discussing interactions with strangers, Dawkins explains interactions between family and why perceived altruism exists (even among distant relatives). By examining exactly how likely it is that any two individuals have the same specific gene (1/n+1, where n is the generational gap), Dawkins shows that if the risk to self is roughly 256 times less than the benefit to strangers, it is genetically favorable to commit an act of altruism. On the other hand, in order for it to make sense to help out a close relative, the benefit only has to be twice as great as the risk to self (though these numbers are skewed in the case of social insects). Dawkins even goes to show how children and parents often compete to make their evolutionary strategy the norm (a child wants more than his fair share of food, while the parent wants to distribute it equally). In some rare cases, the child will forgo reproducing in order to help the mother reproduce more (such is the case in social insects, except in the rare cases, such as in the slaving ants of Africa). Dawkins also explains why different sexes evolved, and how it is a prime example of multiple evolutionary strategies working in conjunction; the egg has to compensate for the sperm's lack of food by becoming large. He also explains how viruses may have evolved from all the leftover DNA, acting as a third evolutionary strategy. Memes are Dawkins' final idea: the concept of evolving ideas. Biologists have long struggled to determine why it is beneficial to humans for ideas to stick in our head. Dawkins claims that the memes themselves are subject to evolution, and only the ones that stick stay around to be studied. Ideas like society, music, and in the writer's opinion, religion, aren't necessarily beneficial to humanity, but instead are really good at engraving themselves as fundamental parts of society. I loved this book. More so than anything else I've read (including Wealth of Nations), it has provoked independent thought. Many times throughout the book, I found myself contemplating the ideas presented and applying them to various aspects of my life. 5/5 Stars, a must read for any layman.

I liked it. Not as good as his other books. It didn't seem to need to be as long as it was. Some parts were a snore, but I still liked most of the book.
