The Future Is Wild: A Natural History Of The Future - The Future is Wild: A Natural History of the Future The Future is Wild is a very interesting book as it provides us with a peek into the planet earth 200 million years from now.

This logical linkage between the known past and the mysterious future takes our imagination to its limit, and yet does not cross the limits of our reasoning and logic. The book begins by explaining briefly the history of the planet earth and the frequent patterns of evolution in order to set up the readers’ minds, and then it jumps smoothly five, a hundred, and two hundred million years in the future....   [tags: The Future is Wild Book Review] 908 words

Satire and Tone in "The Once and Future King" - There is a direct link in Book I and Book IV of the Once and Future King from the animation and adventure that Wart experiences to the fall of King Arthur’s reign. The shift is long and detailed but in the end everything ties together. Although at points the plot is grim, White throws in a little bit of satire throughout every book, for example in Book II when the Orkney environment is harsh but then it is contradicted by the behavior of Sir Pellinore, Sir Grummore, and Sir Palomides. In Book III, it is very descriptive and tedious with a darker tone, but then also is offset by Lancelot’s adventures....   [tags: Once and Future King, White, ] 472 words

Each of us has a slightly different way of defining the word “future”. For some of us, “the future” refers simply to time. To a date. To a random assortment of letters and numbers. For others of us, however, “the future” takes on a completely different meaning. It refers not only to a specific time, but also to our hopes, our goals, our dreams for that time. In the case of Doctor Martin Luther King Junior, it was a “dream for the future” that eventually changed the world....   [tags: future, Martin Luther King Jr., ] 551 words
