The Passengers

Title: The Passengers (Movie)

     I liked this movie. I thought that it was an interesting story line. It was about people who were put into hibernation for 130 years on a spaceship taking them to another planet. This planet was supposed to be the start of a new life and civilization. When there is a glitch in the spaceship's system, a man wakes up out of his hibernation 90 years early. He is the only person who is awake on the ship, so he has to keep himself occupied. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes abstract, futuristic movies.

New Wave Warriors: Mission Critical

Title: New Wave Warriors: Mission Critical (TV program)

     It's about innovators, photographers, adventurers, and scientists risking it all to protect the ocean. They show scuba divers going under icebergs collecting samples. Comparing pictures of landscapes from 100 years ago to today in the Arctic. Also looking at the great Barrier Reef and seeing how      much has died. Very informative. It was on National Geographic channel.

Blue Diary

Title: Blue Diary
Author: Alice Hoffman

     A man's past catches up with him and like dominoes the worlds of those who surround him fall. I enjoyed this plot/character driven story. It left me wondering what one of the main characters would do right up until the end of the book. The book is well written; Hoffman's use of language is seamless.

The Girl You Left Behind

Title: The Girl You Left Behind
Author: Jo Jo Moyes

     Although this book was fictional, it was based on historical facts. It tells the story of Sophie who lived through the German occupation of France during World War I and Olivia who in 2006 is told she has to return a painting that means the world to her, because it was acquired illegally by the Germans. It is the story of the deep love these women had for their husbands and just how far they will go to preserve that love. I thought it was a great story.
