Judging by how few titles I have this week, it looks like the library staff needs some title recommendations. Can anyone help us out? Use the comments feature at the end of this post to tell us what you are reading.
||The Imitation Game (dvd) starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley
This 2014 film is based on the story of British mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing and his colleagues at Bletchley Park, who managed to break the codes of Germany’s Enigma machine (previously thought to be absolutely unbreakable), thereby shifting the balance of power in World War II, saving thousands of lives, and helping pave the way for the developments in computing technology of the latter half of the 20th century.
This movie is about boy who after an accident finds that he has power. Then he helps a friend in need. It is also a book by Kevin Brooks. I partially read through the book and was excited when I saw this movie was coming to Netflix.
|History of Duncanville, Texas.
A little-known title to many, it covers Duncanville’s history up through 1976, when the volume was published.
|Scythe by Neal Shusterman.
Imagine a world where a benevolent computer rules everything, and people can live forever…. In Neal Shusterman’s version, in order to prevent overpopulation, the scythes are charged with “gleaning” – aka killing. If you like teen dystopian novels, this is worth a try.
