Book Summary:

If the works of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Isaac Asimov appeal to you, this might be the book for you. Does the idea of a chip implant by the government to ensure you are happy because you can only make right decisions seem plausible if it is not already reality. Technology is advancing so fast that what the author intended to be a work of fiction was being overtaken by reality, chapter-by-chapter, every few weeks. What sets this book apart from similar science-fiction is its humor and humanity. Advance readers fell in love with a quirky robot. Can an android become a born-again Christian? Many of the characters in this book say it is impossible. Most people who have read Flee or Die now accept the premise that it is possible. Once advanced computers rule the world, can they be persuaded to relinquish complete control over humans? What argument would cause the computers to return free agency to the humans? Is one woman strong enough to defy her mother and change the course of history even while the government is trying to kill her? Where will she find refuge? Can one renegade robot overcome the government's prohibition against religion and proselyting? How can it survive? If the forced consumption of unremitting pornography is destroying a large segment of humanity, what will it take to reverse this menace to the existence of mankind? Will the purveyors of this plague forego their billions without a fight? This is a fictional book, written for entertainment. The serious questions posed throughout this novel might cause you to wonder how long it will take before reality overtakes the speculation of our world in the near future. These questions bothered one advance reader so much that she wrote the author a scathing rebuke for seriously damaging her world view. The nice thing about you not having your mandatory chip implant today (well, at least when this book was first published) is you can lay it down at any time if you don't like it. Caution, you still might find it hard to forget.

Book Summary:

In an intense, emotional mystery that spans a decade in the life of a small town, bestselling author Brian Freeman brings us an unforgettable heroine who discovers that the dead may sometimes be easier to rescue than the living. Deputy Shelby Lake was abandoned as a baby, saved by a stranger who found her in the freezing cold. Now, years later, a young boy is missing—and Shelby is the one who must rescue a child. The only evidence of what happened to ten-year-old Jeremiah Sloan is a bicycle left behind on a lonely road. After a desperate search fails to locate him, the close bonds of Shelby’s hometown begin to fray under the weight of accusations and suspicion. Everyone around her is keeping secrets. Her adoptive father, her best friend, her best friend’s young daughter—they all have something to hide. Even Shelby is concealing a mistake that could jeopardize her career and her future. Unearthing the lies of the people in Jeremiah’s life doesn’t get the police and the FBI any closer to finding him. As time passes and the case grows cold, Shelby worries that the mystery will stay buried forever under the deep, deep snow. But even the deepest snow melts in the spring. When a tantalizing clue finally comes to light, Shelby must confront the darkest lie of all. Exposing the truth about Jeremiah will leave no one’s life untouched—including her own.

There’s nothing like a Black salesman on a mission. An unambitious twenty-two-year-old, Darren lives in a Bed-Stuy brownstone with his mother, who wants nothing more than to see him live up to his potential as the valedictorian of Bronx Science. But Darren is content working at Starbucks in the lobby of a Midtown office building, hanging out with his girlfriend, Soraya, and eating his mother’s home-cooked meals. All that changes when a chance encounter with Rhett Daniels, the silver-tongued CEO of Sumwun, NYC’s hottest tech startup, results in an exclusive invitation for Darren to join an elite sales team on the thirty-sixth floor. After enduring a “hell week” of training, Darren, the only Black person in the company, reimagines himself as “Buck,” a ruthless salesman unrecognizable to his friends and family. But when things turn tragic at home and Buck feels he’s hit rock bottom, he begins to hatch a plan to help young people of color infiltrate America’s sales force, setting off a chain of events that forever changes the game. Black Buck is a hilarious, razor-sharp skewering of America’s workforce; it is a propulsive, crackling debut that explores ambition and race, and makes way for a necessary new vision of the American dream.

This extraordinary novel is the first in a trilogy, and it is already China's bestselling crime series to date' Sunday Times. THE LAW IS WEAK For nearly two decades an unsolved double homicide has haunted Sergeant Zheng Haoming of the Chengdu Police Department. I OFFER REAL JUSTICE Now it looks as if the long-dormant killer has resurfaced, taunting law enforcement with 'death notices' proclaiming their next victim and the date of 'execution'. Perhaps modern police techniques – criminal profiling, online surveillance, SWAT teams – can catch a killer who previously evaded justice?

Book Summary:

In this New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, the son of working-class Mexican immigrants flees a life of labor in fruit-packing plants to run in a Native American marathon from Canada to Guatemala in this "stunning memoir that moves to the rhythm of feet, labor, and the many landscapes of the Americas" (Catriona Menzies-Pike, author of The Long Run). Growing up in Yakima, Washington, Noé Álvarez worked at an apple–packing plant alongside his mother, who “slouched over a conveyor belt of fruit, shoulder to shoulder with mothers conditioned to believe this was all they could do with their lives.” A university scholarship offered escape, but as a first–generation Latino college–goer, Álvarez struggled to fit in. At nineteen, he learned about a Native American/First Nations movement called the Peace and Dignity Journeys, epic marathons meant to renew cultural connections across North America. He dropped out of school and joined a group of Dené, Secwépemc, Gitxsan, Dakelh, Apache, Tohono O’odham, Seri, Purépecha, and Maya runners, all fleeing difficult beginnings. Telling their stories alongside his own, Álvarez writes about a four–month–long journey from Canada to Guatemala that pushed him to his limits. He writes not only of overcoming hunger, thirst, and fear—dangers included stone–throwing motorists and a mountain lion—but also of asserting Indigenous and working–class humanity in a capitalist society where oil extraction, deforestation, and substance abuse wreck communities. Running through mountains, deserts, and cities, and through the Mexican territory his parents left behind, Álvarez forges a new relationship with the land, and with the act of running, carrying with him the knowledge of his parents’ migration, and—against all odds in a society that exploits his body and rejects his spirit—the dream of a liberated future. "This book is not like any other out there. You will see this country in a fresh way, and you might see aspects of your own soul. A beautiful run." —Luís Alberto Urrea, author of The House of Broken Angels "When the son of two Mexican immigrants hears about the Peace and Dignity Journeys—'epic marathons meant to renew cultural connections across North America'—he’s compelled enough to drop out of college and sign up for one. Spirit Run is Noé Álvarez’s account of the four months he spends trekking from Canada to Guatemala alongside Native Americans representing nine tribes, all of whom are seeking brighter futures through running, self–exploration, and renewed relationships with the land they’ve traversed." —Runner's World, Best New Running Books of 2020 "An anthem to the landscape that holds our identities and traumas, and its profound power to heal them." —Francisco Cantú, author of The Line Becomes a River

It seems like Jennie's real best friend is her diary. Then she meets Mr. Johnstone, the substitute math teacher. Jennie has never met such a charismatic teacher. She feels honored when Mr. J. seems to single her out for special attention, and begins to fantasize about him as her boyfriend. When Mr. J. first reveals his feelings for her, she is thrilled by the relationship that grows outside the classroom walls. Then, slowly, Jennie's diary becomes a record of her loneliness, pain, and confusion. Will it also offer her a way to escape from this treacherous love?

Book Summary:

Professor Theo Cray is trained to see patterns where others see chaos. So when mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop. As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing. But a field trip to Montana suddenly lands him in the middle of an investigation into the bloody killing of one of his former students. As more details, and bodies, come to light, the local cops determine that the killer is either a grizzly gone rogue...or Theo himself. Racing to stay one step ahead of the police, Theo must use his scientific acumen to uncover the killer. Will he be able to become as cunning as the predator he hunts--before he becomes its prey?

An experimental virus that randomly ceases the aging process is accidentally released, throwing the world into chaos. What's worse is that the genetic changes caused by the virus sometimes resulted in a lethal side effect: Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS). Many years after the world has come to terms with the new state of things, Yasmine Holloway and Leo Genix - whose lives have been riddled with peculiar tragedies - find a cure for SDS; however, their cure also reverts the aging process to its normal state. The powers that be weave Yasmine and Leo into a web of conspiracy, unwilling to let go of immortality and control. The scientists are driven underground, where a network of hackers aid in their efforts to deliver a cure to the world before time runs out.
