Good Was The Day

The Life of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Dorothy Davies

Click For Book Page and Excerpt

Genres: Channelled Works, Historical Fiction

Available Formats to Download: MOBI EPUB MS Word PDF MS Reader Text RTF 

Also available as a paperback

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a man who held the ultimate powerful position and who paid the ultimate price, is still regarded as a hero by some and the last gunslinger in the west by others. Countless books, countless conspiracy theories, none of them from the man himself until now.

Good Was The Day is JFK's account of his life, leaving out the politics and concentrating, as far as possible, on his feelings about every aspect of his life - and death.

    • Average 4.0 from 1 ratings
      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this
        reviewerís plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here),
        was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe
        but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this
        newest dish instead.  So is this near-future military sci-fi with a
        side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the Starving Review
        creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the
        genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Hereís the rub, my literary foodies, thereís a fine line between using
        humor to flavor a serious dish and overseasoning with humor to ruin a
        dish.  Comedy, especially dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even
        harder.  So, let me put this particular dog to bed and say that the
        sugary sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There is
        a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic elements, as
        well as that dry British wit to the whole affair, and it sits well in
        this Reviewerís stomach.
        
        With that clear, letís attack the rest of the components of this meal.
         Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters and handles those
        characters quite well.  Even the occasional stock minor characters is
        gifted with a particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit
        more three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the chef to
        make the characters more than the title of their jobs, no matter how
        stereotypical they may seem at first blush, and that defiance of
        stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe of
        Ďmilitary-killer-robot-goes-haywireí (and yes, that IS a classic by
        this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in the realm of
        near-future technology.  The initial start is a bit more mellow than I
        expected it would be.  In fact, it veers dangerously close to an
        extended info-dump, yet it wasnít to the point of off-putting.  It was
        a thick crust of necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the
        pacing turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its stride, the
        courses come along well, properly seasoned, with dutiful wordsmithing.
         If I have any stylistic complaints, itís the occasional slip of
        British turns-of-phrase in a distinctly American setting.  Naturally,
        most readers probably wonít catch these, as I barely did and Iím a bit
        of an Anglophile, so I donít see this detracting from most peopleís
        meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish there was a
        bit more done from the haywire military robotís point-of-view.  Not
        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  Itís not *quite*
        perfect, but itís really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp mixing some
        dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5  (visitor)

        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  Itís not *quite*
        perfect, but itís really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.

Life is a game of chess and we have been programming our computers to play it for generations; each time honing the programs to work smarter, faster, with more efficiency and higher accuracy than ever before.

A stroke of fate saw two memory cards being swapped. In a military laboratory, the most powerful game of chess ever written was accidentally loaded in to an experimental, highly agile, weaponised robot. From the moment they hit the run command, that robot had only one purpose ... to win the game...

Check Mate

    • Average 4.0 from 1 ratings
      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto
        this reviewerís plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight
        (interviewed here), was already in my review queue for some
        time now with an older recipe but, as her newest book came
        up for sale, I decided to take up this newest dish instead. 
        So is this near-future military sci-fi with a side of wit
        and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the
        Starving Review creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan
        of the genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Hereís the rub, my literary foodies, thereís a fine line
        between using humor to flavor a serious dish and
        overseasoning with humor to ruin a dish.  Comedy, especially
        dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even harder.  So, let
        me put this particular dog to bed and say that the sugary
        sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There
        is a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic
        elements, as well as that dry British wit to the whole
        affair, and it sits well in this Reviewerís stomach.
        
        With that clear, letís attack the rest of the components of
        this meal.  Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters
        and handles those characters quite well.  Even the
        occasional stock minor characters is gifted with a
        particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit more
        three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the
        chef to make the characters more than the title of their
        jobs, no matter how stereotypical they may seem at first
        blush, and that defiance of stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe
        of Ďmilitary-killer-robot-goes-haywireí (and yes, that IS a
        classic by this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in
        the realm of near-future technology.  The initial start is a
        bit more mellow than I expected it would be.  In fact, it
        veers dangerously close to an extended info-dump, yet it
        wasnít to the point of off-putting.  It was a thick crust of
        necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the pacing
        turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its
        stride, the courses come along well, properly seasoned, with
        dutiful wordsmithing.  If I have any stylistic complaints,
        itís the occasional slip of British turns-of-phrase in a
        distinctly American setting.  Naturally, most readers
        probably wonít catch these, as I barely did and Iím a bit of
        an Anglophile, so I donít see this detracting from most
        peopleís meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish
        there was a bit more done from the haywire military robotís
        point-of-view.  Not much, but there were a few bits early on
        that gives the reader some flashes of what is going on and I
        found those particularly brilliant while not giving away the
        overarching plot.  Some more scenes like that I think would
        have added a bit of needed spice at points during the last
        half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future
        military romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots! 
        Itís not *quite* perfect, but itís really quite good and I
        can gladly recommend this meal to any lover of
        science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly British
        dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out

The object of manís first worship were stones. Then the elements Ė wind, rain, water and fire. 4,000 years ago we worshipped the sun. Now, of course, we know better. We have a better understanding of the world. We have, in short, evolved. As manís knowledge increases he has less use for deities. Is it a natural progression for man to outgrow his God, just as he outgrew stones, the sun and fire? Will Christianity suffer the same fate?

Understanding is the key.

You know the more I think back to my childhood the more Iím convinced it was a little weird. Or was it my family that was a little weird, Iím not quite sure.

Mum, Dad and I lived in a mid-terraced two rooms up and two rooms down house in the north of England. I realized we werenít rich one day when I heard Mum knocking next door and asking to borrow a couple of pennies for the train fare to town. Even in the 1950ís that wasnít much. Anyway the old biddy next door must have been as hard up as us because Mum chucked me in the pram and pushed me to town.
