    Summary:
    The majority of the book was either a rant against the Jewish Religion or was a autobiography of his life. Adolf Hitler was actually born in Austria and had one of the worst childhoods I have read, he was basically abandoned by his parents and once he came to terms with himself he moved out of his home town at the age of sixteen. When he first set off from Austria he wanted to become an Architect so he eventually traveled to Munich when he then gave up on being one. He joined the German Army in World War One even though he’s Austrian, where he then became well known within his Division. When the war ended he made his way back to Munich where he found a a small group later to be called the Nazi Party.

    Evaluation:
    Mein Kampf (My Struggle) by Adolf Hitler is an educational book by the fact that it is about Hitler’s life. If historical books are the type of books you are into this would be one of the best books I would recommend.

    Rating: I would this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars, because I would laugh every time Hitler would state to the German people that he would be their savior. It would be pretty funny every time a leader would promise something but then immediately die.

    Recommendations:
    “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak would probably be the best book I could recommend for this time period. It takes place in the era (World War 2). It’s about a small girl that is adopted into a poor family in the city of Munich. she can’t read until she is 8 or 9 years, she starts reading by stealing books from the dead, rich, or just form a pile of garbage. One thing that stands out in this book is that it is all narrated by Death.

    Summary:
    Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, wrote the first volume of Mein Kampf (translates into My Struggle) while imprisoned in Bavaria after his failed attempt to take power of Munich in November, 1923. Published in the summer of 1925, then followed by the second volume in December, 1926. The book presents Hitler’s Darwinist worldview and reveals his hatred of Jews and Bolshevists. The book covered a lot of Hitler’s childhood, and a lot of his family and father issues. The book started when Hitler was young and continued through his early adult years. The book went into great detail about his family and what their views were.

    Evaluation:
    This book is very educational and gives the reader a lot of information and the backstory of Adolf Hitler. If you like reading historical books, then you would like this book. Hitler did an amazing job of talking about his childhood and how it shaped him up into his early adult years. The book is a little over 700 pages, but is very easy to read because it is that interesting. If you even like nonfiction books I would recommend this book. Hitler’s life was actually a lot of fun to read about.

    Rating:
    I would rate this book a solid 4.5/5, because I am personally not a huge history fan, but the book was really good and I did not need to force myself to read it. The book was very interesting though, so that is why I am giving it this high of a rating.

    Ready Player One, and Armada. Both books are by Ernest Cline. Ready Player One is about a teenager in a post-apocalyptic world, the world is dominated by a game called “oasis” which is a virtual world. The creator of the game dies and a scavenger hunt takes place for his thousands of billions of dollars. He takes first place in the hunt while close behind is a corporation who also wants the prize. the book is about the battle between the two.
    The second book “Armada” Is about a boy who is #5 in the world in the game “Armada”, the boys father “died” at a very young age. and when aliens are about to invade earth, he finds out that armada was actually a training simulator to prepare the world to fight against the invasion. He gets recruited to fight alongside in the highest of the high rankings in the invasion and finds out his dad is actually alive.
    Both books I really enjoyed reading, and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who enjoys fiction/adventure books.
