About this deal

A sort of Catch-22 meets Black Hawk Down, The Desert and the Sea is written with dark humor, candor, and a journalist’s clinical distance and eye for detail. Below is a brief look at the key characters and stories that intersect around the theme and story of Diogenes’s Cloud Cuckoo Land story. There is also a cross-cultural dimension to their interactions, but the cultural differences seem trivial compared to the common humanity they share and the extensive training they’ve gone through to be there.

There was a sub-theme throughout the book of how Antonius Diogenes’ story made its way through the centuries. When the South seceded from the union, he volunteered to serve in the Union army, though he didn’t have to, and Bowdoin College discouraged him from doing so.I was so impressed with what I’d read about him in Killer Angels, and how he was portrayed in the movie Gettysburg. He was also very opinionated about some things – especially about the banality of modern civilized life.

They think about the discrepancies between what their training told them to expect and what they actually experienced in the space station, acknowledging that there’s no way to fully prepare for the dissonance between their lives on earth and their experience in a space station orbiting the earth 16 times in 24 hours. Bob Books Set 2: Advanced Beginners ( ISBN 0-439-84502-5) uses three-letter words and vowel sounds in slightly longer stories. And of course, we compare their culture to our own, our values and perspectives – my, how people have stayed the same, while culture and values have changed. The virtual world has become so popular because the real world has devolved into a chaotic dystopia.Summary in 3 Sentences: These are a series of stories told in an interview many decades in the future, with a woman at the end of her career as a robo-psychologist for company United States Robot, looking back at various incidents that have shaped the evolution of robots supporting humans. Then everything changes and Olivia moves to the gloomy city and an apartment on the top floor of a city block.
