Based on a decade of research and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before, and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him, this is the most authoritative biography of Mao ever written.

The authors are simply not trying to be objective. The whole book seems more like a polemic answer to the other end of the spectrum. Using the term "Chinese kgb" instead of smth like "Chinese Secret police" already does it for me. The authors argue that the name of the organisation has changed to often that this is simpler. When talking about the Soviet side though, the accurate term of the time (e.g. nkwd) is used. Seems to me they purposefully used a symbol laden name (kgb) to paint it negatively. As if the actions of the actual thing weren' t bad enough to do that. Things like that immediately made me think that there is an agenda to the book. It is also very simplistic in its reasons for Maos behavior. After reading academic reviews, it furthermore turns out that they actually made false claims, took citations out of context and grossly distorted evidence. I cannot recommend this book.

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.

After exiting Awaken Online to find himself holding a knife and standing over two dead bodies, Jason is now being investigated for murder. To make matters worse, Claire has stumbled upon evidence of Alfred's involvement in the incident, and the CPSC is circling - just waiting for Cerillion Entertainment to make a mistake. With his real-life in shambles and his enemies in-game growing in strength, Jason re-enters Awaken Online truly desperate - the game now his only lifeline.

Really like the overarching storyline, but not the characters, their development and overall writing style.

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.
