Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl by N. D. Wilson

Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: A Wide-Eyed Wonder in God's Spoken World  promises to be a book that you will never forget.  Starting the preface off with "What excuses can I possibly make for this book," N. D. Wilson does not prepare you for the unexpected journey that you embark upon, as each word from the pages of his book leaves a permanent imprint on both your mind and soul.

In the beginning, confusion comes to mind.  I couldn't quite predict the direction in which the book was headed.  I feel like Wilson tricked me with the preface.  I wasn't expecting to be so in touch with the world around me.  I wasn't expecting to appreciate the essence of the minuteness of both the largest and smallest creature.

This book silently pushes you into a world of deep thought.  I found myself starting to examine how grateful I was for the small things.  I honestly do believe that Wilson is probably the only author in the world, who can make you have a second thought about squishing an ant, swatting a wasp, and smashing a caterpillar.

The drop of dew on my car now begs me to consider its very beginning or how it will arrive to its demise of evaporation.  Because of Wilson, I perhaps will never look at the world the same again.

As an English instructor, I appreciate Wilson's writing style.  In the beginning, his writing style throws you for a loop. However, I now have material to teach the writing process and to create journal prompts.

Once you read this book, you will not regret any second that you designate to it.

The Condor Song by Darryl Nyznyk

The Condor Song by Darryl Nyznyk is the best suspense novel that I have read in a LOOONNNGGG time! Nyznyk brings to life the legal world with the environmental world through a series of unexpected twists and turns. The main character, Sean Donovan, begins the riveting unpredictable story, as a dismal man, whose professional and personal life was snatched away from him by a colleague AND former friend, Richard Wolf. Through several unexpected events and deaths, Sean Donovan slowly begins to regain his life back, piece by piece.  Ironically, the condor bird, the largest flying land birds in the North America, gives him all of his life back, literally.

The Condor Song tricks the reader into getting lost in the battle between good and bad, between Sean and Richard, and between the Sierra Club and the Golden Company.  Even though evil appears to prevails, the ending of The Condor Song sweeps you off your feet.

Nyznyk not only wrote a wonderful book, but he rekindled a buried desired of mine to attend law school.

This book is definitely a must read!
