✏FATAL OBSESSION Book Summary : Omotola Rhodes has everything any young woman in her shoes could be proud of—more money than she could spend in a single lifetime, drop-dead gorgeous looks with a figure to match, brains that is better than average, and most of all, the adoration of her loving father. It was a classic modern-day fairy tale, right down to the gorgeous wardrobe and the magnificent houses with servants at her beck and call. But all that soon came crashing down when her father insisted on her marrying someone of his own choosing. There was nothing wrong with the arrangement except for one single fact: Omotola has fallen deeply in love with Michael Akin- Taylor, the heir to the Akin- Taylor dynasty and a sworn enemy of Chief Stephen Rhodes. Michael Akin-Taylor would rather die than see his beloved with another. Especially the suitor favoured by his estranged proposed father-in-law. No man in his right mind would choose such a man for his only daughter. No man. It was a fight he was prepared to fight to the end. Anything to win the beautiful hand of the lovely Omotola. Fatal Obsession is a story of love that goes far beyond filialility, blackmail, and kidnapping. It is a story of how love conquers all obstacles.

✏Feminist Perspectives on Eating Disorders Book Summary : Advancing the literature on a critical topic, this important new work illuminates the relationship between the anguish of eating disorder sufferers and the problems of ordinary women. The book covers a wide variety of issues - from ways in which gender may predispose women to eating disorders to the widespread cultural concerns these problems symbolize. Throughout, the psychology of women is reflected in the concepts and methods described; there is an explicit commitment to political and social equality for women; and therapy is reevaluated based on an understanding of the needs of women patients and the potentially differing contributions of male and female therapists. Providing valuable insights into the critical problem of eating disorders, this book is essential reading for clinicians and researchers alike. Also, by examining many of the ways in which women are affected by and respond to society's gender politics, the book may be used as a text in women's studies courses.

✏Close Encounters of the Third Kind Book Summary : For many, Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CE3K) is not so much a movie as a religious experience. On its release in 1977, CE3K virtually redefined the science fiction film, shifting it away from spaceships, laser guns, and bug-eyed monsters into a modified form of science fiction that John Wyndham once called ‘logical fantasy’. What would it be like if extra-terrestrials made contact with people on Earth? How would it feel? Like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Steven Spielberg’s primary inspiration, CE3K is concerned with mankind’s evolution towards the stars, towards a state of transcendence. But Spielberg’s vision hinges not so much on cool scientific intellect being the key to our next stage of evolution, as on the necessary development of emotional intelligence. To that end, we must regain our childlike curiosity for what lies beyond the skies, we must recover our capacity to experience wonder. Intensity of emotion is inherent to the film’s meaning, and the aim of this book is to explore this in detail. Along the way it delves into the film’s production history, explores Spielberg’s remarkable cinematic realisation of the film (including a comparison study of the three different release versions), and considers in detail how CE3K fits into the Spielberg oeuvre.

✏Obsession Book Summary : The sestina (of medieval French origin) is a complex poetic form of 39 lines (six sestets and a three-line "envoy") in which the six end-words (teleutons) of the lines of the first sestet stanza are repeated in a specific order as teleutons in the five succeeding sestets. In the envoy, the six teleutons are again picked up, one of them being buried in, and one finishing, each line. Because of the complexity of the form, the sestina fell out of favor with poets for several decades. However, a twenty-first century revival of the form is underway. This is the first anthology of sestinas that showcases both traditional and innovative examples of the form by modern and contemporary poets, award winners, and emerging writers alike. Organized by such themes as Americana; Art; Love and Sex; and Memory, Contemplation, Retrospection, and Death, the collection also includes sestinas with irregular teleutons and unconventional sestinas. An evocative introduction by Marilyn Krysl acquaints readers with the form. The volume concludes with useful indexes of first lines and teleutons, increasing access to the poems beyond the poets' names.

✏Subtle Obsession Book Summary : A mother is one being God has given—this being will protect her child so that no harm would come to her child even if she has to lose her life—such is a mother’s love, but what about a ‘child’ who threatens to kill? ‘My gut feeling tells me that this will be over in a matter of days.’ ‘Look at this beach, this sandy beach,’ Waidnas said as he bent a little to scoop a handful of sand. ‘This beach is beautiful, but if the sand is going to hurt me, when I drop on it, or land hard on it, then I will not return to this beach anymore,’ he spoke without looking at her, but letting the sand just drain from his palm. * * * Nature creates and then steals beauty, but man . . .man destroys it—sometimes completely. As he looked at her eyes, he could sense the deep, very, very deep sadness behind beauty. As he stood on her shadow, for the very first time, he thought to himself, he was looking at beauty, beauty where it rightfully belongs, without all that unnatural application of talcum, or make-up, or whatever they call it, to enhance the beauty of oneself.

✏My Road Hockey Obsession Book Summary : The whole world knows how much hockey is a vital part of Canadian culture. The cold winters, old rinks, and frozen ponds are ubiquitous to millions of Canadians and contextual for countless more across the world. Even for those who didn’t play ice hockey, the game still became palpable. In My Road Hockey Obsession, author Curt Solomon tells the story of a group of young friends building their lives, friendships, and adolescence around road hockey. For Solomon, road hockey was much, much more than a pastime. It was the only pastime. When he started playing road hockey, he knew he had found the city of gold, and there was no use looking for or pursuing any other activity. In this unique story built entirely around ball hockey, Solomon shares how he and his friends transformed a simple pastime into the most bonding and durable period of their lives. Road hockey was how they grew up, how they communicated, how they thought, and how they forged life-long memories. My Road Hockey Obsession narrates a joyous story that sparks nostalgia—the days of orange balls, plastic blades, and the hollow sound of wooden sticks on asphalt.
