    This book was a passion felt work of art.. I enjoyed the flow of the story, and the journey of Jacob's life. the heart-break and love he went through was very moving.. Jacob is a great character in this book, he has a good heart, pride, and confidence. John Neeleman is such an amazing writer, this novel held me captive with the writers emotional felt words. This book is wrote with both religious and philosophical, and it has also historical events, this book keeps your interest held, this was such a wonderful book!  This book of Christianity, is very insightful and it may have different meanings for each person that reads it!! When I finished  Logos gave me perspective. made me really think of church and faith.  Logos, my view or what I felt from Jacob's tragedy that he faced, Jacob found his way to forgiveness and he releases that weight of being wronged that he's been carrying for so many years.. Plus a deeper understanding what choosing to have your own beliefs cost so very many people, but they stilled held strong to their belief no matter what.. After reading this, I felt more comfortable in my faith.  I know that some might read this book, and not like it for their own beliefs, but that shows us how much we've grown in this world, we can choice to have our belief's and no one can say that we can not!! Finally I add, this book is great fictional read, I like that the writer did research on the historical events, but made the book his..

This is such a emotional raw book, that will set every nerve ending on high alert!!

When you start this book, best to go knowing nothing at all!! As you read it you read you will discover different layers upon layers, as you peel them back you will start to feel so may emotions, as you go farther into this book it only gets better and better!! At some points I was holding my breath for what’s going to happen next!!
When I first started this book, I was so happy with the pace and the raw naked emotions you feel as this story unfolds.. Sloth is one very strong-willed person, and does all to survive with the cards that have been dealt!! That’s all of Sloth I’ll give!!
This story is one that hit every emotion so hard that I cried some fat gross tears!! That just emphasizes how totally wonderful this book actually is!!
This book connects with me on a deep level, it’s hard to explain, no spoilers!! All I’ll say is to know deep sadness and find your way through it, reading this book made me embrace what happened!! For that I Thank you Ella James for a very talented and creative book Sloth, that I loved and enjoyed so very much!!
I also want to recommend this to all the loves a great book that has so many demission that you can’t say just one like its romance, mystery, drama and others too. For all 18 and older!!

Mary Pilon spent several years reporting on finance for the Wall Street Journal, and several more reporting on sports for The New York Times. In her first book, The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the World’s Favorite Board Game, Pilon debunks the myth—long perpetuated by Parker Brothers—that Monopoly was invented by a man named Charles Darrow during the Great Depression. Really, three decades prior, a woman named Lizzie Magie had created The Landlord’s Game, an obvious ancestor. A surprising twist: Lizzie’s game included a set of rules that was anti-monopoly, in which the object was to spread wealth around.

The panel in the middle of the Odyssey’s control panel shows Sally and a small section of Mission Control, presumably back on Earth. Sally confirms with Jack that the readings Earth is getting from the Odyssey remotely are what is actually happening on site.

Soon after, mission control is able to respond immediately to Jack’s initial OMS burn and let him know that he is over-stressing the ship trying to escape the TET. Jack is then able to make adjustments (cut thrust) before the stress damages the Odyssey.
