I haven't really noticed until now that there isn't a word in our society that is used for relationships that are between brothers and lovers.

The story if Gilgamesh is an ancient epic, which is timeless and universal. This masterpiece allows the reader to imagine a muscular king fighting arousing battle scenes. This story brings fresh, but mysterious, sensuous pleasures. It seems like there will be daring, possibly forceful love. It seems like obscure loss and death is uncanny, testing Gilgamesh's endurance and pride. Maybe there will be open, sinewy brooding. There might be a lusty, surge that is unleashed and will cause ominous visions.
Having one god was important to the people who created this text. Following the example of God was also important. It tells us that being faithful to their god and to their customs was important to them. One inference I can make from this text is that these people valued loyalty to YHWH. Another inference I can make just by looking at this text is that they valued loyalty to their traditions/customs.
Even though this is a fictional book, it gave me an interesting point of view on the topic of worrying about HIV and AIDS among one's friends. I thought that it would be more about baseball, but it seemed to have more of a focus on the HIV part of the equation.
This book was an interesting abridged version of a very important time in history. I had heard the name Malcolm X, but I never knew his background or about some of the events that he started or was involved in.
This book gave me more information about the life of Abraham Lincoln. I had studied the Civil War and I knew a little about his life, but this gave me interesting information.
The first chapter of Abraham Lincoln by Tanya Lee Stone might leave a reader feeling satisfied because Abraham Lincoln helped his father with some work that he needed to do. An example of this is on page 8. "He helped his father with the farmwork, too." This is satisfying because it shows that Lincoln was a hard worker, and he didn't expect everything to be done for him.
