How I Escaped Bloody Hell: X-ploring Freedom is unlike anything I have ever read. This book provides an in-depth view of the universe and reality, as Mary LaForge sees it, and really makes the reader think about their own life. For example, LaForge discusses how glitches result in things getting “birthed,” in the sense that energy/vibration expels any type of irritation and in that process causes something to get expelled. I thought that whole concept was interesting as it provided a different way to view a glitch, which in many cases is considered negative. In this case however, it was made to seem like a glitch could just be the beginning of something new, which I appreciated.
The author also discusses humans and the nature of humanity in a lucid language that makes things easy to understand. The book expounds on the ways that we might be products of mechanical nature, meaning that as we grow we are influenced and mature based on our environment, however no matter how much we try to mimic God, we will never reach that point. Not only was this simply a reality check but it’s a weirdly calming way to view reality.
Overall How I Escaped Bloody Hell: X-ploring Freedom was a quick read that analyzes and interprets the universe and its intricacies in a unique way that seems hard to understand on the surface, but Mary LaForge provides ample examples to get her point across so anyone can understand. I definitely think that this is a good read for anyone who wants to be exposed to different perspectives on the universe itself and how humans interact with it all!

The Rise And Ruin Of Logic helps readers figure out the various ways to be at one with life’s characters. Why was this an important book for you to write?
This book was very important for me to write simple because people have become so confused about the idea of the mind. I suffered from the same confusion most of my searching life. I thought to myself that if I could bring clarity to the ‘mind” then I may be able to help others who felt the same.The mind is such a vast and controversial topic that I wanted to add my version about the mind and what thinking means as well as understand that we cannot banish the mind, hence the character “Thought” found in the birth from Nothingness chapter.
What were some themes you felt were important to capture in this book?
Understanding all the characters depicted in my works. I would say the practical review chapter about all the characters is the important part of my work.
I felt like this book gave me a different perspective on life. What do you feel is a common misconception people have about life?
I think a common misconception people have about life in terms of my genre and what I write about: is that many people think they need to empty the mind, stop the mind, cease thinking, etc. Everything about the “new age” has been brewed into one massive pot that has led to so much confusion.
What do you hope is one thing people take away from your book?
My hope that people can take from my book is to make peace with themselves about the topic of spirituality. That is primarily what motivated me to write this book, hence my characters from Wisdom to Body and all of them in between. This has been my effort to organise the human make up. While some people follow only the heart and others, Logic, I have tried to give equal credit to all the characters. It is all about balance.
There are many life lessons to be learned from the Holy Bible and messages readers and believers can apply to their most trying situations. From relationships to remaining faithful believers in Christianity, the Bible can sometimes be difficult to interpret, and some passages have as many interpretations as they have readers. Blessed Beyond Measure, by K. Denise McQueen, is one woman’s work based on scripture and life experience. From being virtuous to having a forgiving spirit, McQueen covers a vast array of life’s dilemmas head-on and with scripture in mind.
Blessed Beyond Measure, by K. Denise McQueen, is filled with quotes from the Bible as well as quotes from inspirational speakers like former President Barack Obama. In each of McQueen’s chapters, she tackles an ethical dilemma or an aspect of relationships based on scripture and adds her own opinions throughout. Though I don’t agree with some of her thoughts on making sure the man is the one making decisions in the household, she does make some valid points about self-worth and being humble.
I was expecting a book rooted in the Bible and focused on general life advice but found this to be more of a text designed to advise women in their relationships. Peppered throughout the book is valuable commentary on self-respect, how to treat others, and how to live a life with purpose. The bulk of the book is centered on the choices one must make in order to begin a romantic relationship and how to maintain a strong marriage.
With a few organizational and grammatical issues aside, I think that Blessed Beyond Measure has strong messages that come from the heart, each of them valuable in different ways and K. Denise McQueen’s passion for life and faith shines through every chapter. This is an inspirational book that motivates readers to live a God first life.

The Demolition of Democracy is a compelling analysis of the policies and the behavior of the Trump administration and how they are destroying the democratic foundation of the United States. Ted Bagley has written this book as an attempt to get people to realize that it does matter who we choose to lead our country. This book delivers a clear perspective on the current state of the U.S. government and Ted Bagley does not sugar coat his words. The author seeks to open the reader’s eyes to the realities we live in today, and open them he does.
Ted Bagley shines a light on all the issues the country and world are facing. He fearlessly reviews and examines the broken-down of our political and judicial system and the absence of democracy in the country. The Demolition of Democracy takes a good look at the people at the top and the general climate of the country they operate in. This book makes it clear that the United States of America has been going through a dark period with less than proper leadership. Issues like racism and prejudice have become staples of the administration. Ted Bagley states his stance clearly, unequivocally, and with reverence.
This book is not for people who are easily offended as it can be viewed as aggressive, but I choose to see it as passionate. The Demolition of Democracy is a hard hitting book that investigates and diagnosis the political problems facing Americans.

Often people lose faith because life takes too long to get sorted out. This is how people end up giving up too early. Success requires patience and commitment as well as willingness to change whatever needs to change. The Rise and Ruin of Logic is about keeping the faith. It is about all the elements in life that work together to form a person and their success story. It is about accepting life even when you are in the pit of it. It’s about growing as a human being and committing to living and not simply being blindly focused on financial success. Are you ready to succeed?
The Rise and Ruin of Logic is oozing with charisma. The author’s charm jumps off the pages. The spirit and tone of the book will motivate you not only to read more but also, and more importantly, to reflect on your own life. To take stock of what you may be doing wrong in your life. To improve what you have been doing right. It is thought-provoking at the very least. Especially during this time of isolation. The time could be used to make a few changes to your life. This book is a good guide to the right path. It is a good guide for anyone who might be at the beginning of their journey.
The author is generous with language while keeping the tone tranquil and safe for the maximum understanding of the subject. His sole purpose with this book is to send a message. John Lindhjem’s excellent writing brings this message to life. The way he cajoles the reader into connecting with the material is nothing but astounding.
It is always useful to hear what others have to say. It is always useful to try and learn something new. To hear a message from another point of view. The Rise and Ruin of Logic was a little overwhelming at first, but with a few page flips I was drawn into the narrative. You will even enjoy it. On one hand, you wish you had been slowly inducted into the book but on the other, you will appreciate being thrown right into the thick of it.
John Lindhjem has written an exceptional self help book that highlights new age thought. The Rise and Ruin of Logic will keep you thinking well after you’ve finished the book.

“Revelation” the Patmos Vision Unveiled provides a deeper meaning to the book of Revelation from the Bible and interprets the symbols, metaphors and figurative language in the same book. The author also covers the similarities between the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation.
The author, Rev. Gerald F McPeters has brought a new perspective to how Christian’s interpret the Bible, especially the book of Daniel and Revelation. The author understands and respects different religions and also different perspectives of Christianity. His perspective sheds new light on what most Christians have been brought up knowing and maybe overlooked. Although Rev McPeter’s interpretation of the book of Revelation is possibly controversial, it has created room for people to think outside the box. He has done a great job of comparing the relationship between the United States of America and Israel to what the bible talks about God’s chosen nation. The author uses real life scenarios and current events to explain his understanding of the book of Revelation and this helps in creating a vivid image in the mind of the reader.
“Revelation” the Patmos Vision Unveiled does not have fictional characters but the author has done a marvelous job of creating perfect images of all the symbols and metaphorical figures in the book of Revelation using simple language that can be easily understood. A good example is of the seven seals that are mentioned in Revelation 5. The book makes many references to Christianity and the United States so if you’re not within one of those two groups you may have a different experience with this book. Besides that, the book is an thought-provoking piece of literature that provides guidance, new perspectives and new ideas to the biblical knowledge of Christians all over the world. I would recommend this book to Christians and anyone who wants to learn more about the life of Christ and end times.

Book of Chaos follows Emmar who begins to see a strange man in his dreams who shares astute words of wisdom with him. What was your inspiration for this novel?
My inspiration was based on observing humanity as well as business from so many different angles over many years. I have lived in 3 continents of the world and I have immersed myself in so many different cultures over the course of 4 decades. Over the years, I have witnessed many people tell themselves stories regarding the state of their existence based on a particular perspective, and accepting that perspective as the absolute truth even if it does not serve the long term interest of those who espouse it. I also spent 2 decades in corporate america where i witnessed the evolution of a company from a caring, employee-centered organization, to one that only cared about staying away from legal trouble. My unique and varied experience of humanity as well as business, ultimately led me to write this book with the hope of challenging conventional views and encourage people to be more comfortable exploring alternative angles concerning our common human situation.
Emmarssom is an interesting character that I enjoyed reading about. What were some driving ideals behind his character development?
The character development was based on real life experiences.
Through the story many observations of society and people are shared. What were some themes you wanted to explore in this book?
The main themes I wanted to explore in the book were: Business strategy, strength, love, equality, truth, addiction, trust, safety and order, motivation, the beginning of the universe.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
My next book is expected to be ready within the next 12 months. I am still deciding on the title.
A futuristic look at one woman’s life is what readers will find in Julia’s Memories by Dave Drӧge. The book is told from Julia’s point of view as she dictates her life to her PR robot. It’s an intense read that follows our protagonist as she navigates her life in this new world. However, her story takes place in 2050, which is not far off from where we are today. Readers in their twenties and thirties will find themselves identifying with Julia as she describes what is a not-so-distant future, but one we may not be comfortable with just yet. While there are no flashy light saber battles in this unique science fiction story, this is a story of a woman’s experience with her life which transcends time.
The first thing to keep in mind about this book is that it is an English translation. That being said, it becomes easier to ignore the spelling or grammatical issues that crop up from time to time. They are not so great that they detract from the content of the story, but they are there nonetheless. There is a lot of content in this dense book. Not only is the word count dense, the content is dense. This book is a sort of existential look at a person’s life. With that comes philosophical thinking and a viewpoint that is unique.
If philosophical thoughts and conversations about what makes up humanity are your thing, then this book is definitely something that you will enjoy. Drӧge certainly dives right into the existential theme that he has built this novel upon. Seeing this world through Julia’s memories gives readers the ability to distance themselves from it and see things in a different way. While there are things that have occurred quite differently from our current timeline, there is no doubt that reading a book that takes place in 2050 is daunting to those who will live to see it. Less than 50 years away yet with the technological advancement one comes to expect from future-exploration books.
While there are a few drawbacks to this book, I found it to be an interesting read, if you can get past the seemingly insurmountable walls of text that will greet you on every page. This book offers a fascinating exploration into the human condition, it picks it a part piece by piece and examines each one.
Readers will find an interesting life-story in Julia’s Memories by Dave Drӧge as the book explores the memoirs of the title character. While this book has been translated, it is linear and easy to follow. That doesn’t make it any less of an impressive declaration of the human condition in a not too distant futuristic world. This book is definitely the novel to pick up if you want to philosophically muse about what it means to be human.
