Summary

Homer Fink could speak Latin and Greek or chart the orbit of the planet Jupiter, but when it came to tying his shoelaces or knotting his tie Homer was helpless.  The Adventures of Homer Fink is a story of youth’s first awareness of power and philosophy and love. It is peopled with characters as real as your next-door neighbors and yet uniquely extraordinary. Above all, this is a tale full of humor and affection and the wonder of growing up.

    Perfect for fans of James Dashner's The Maze Runner, Feedback is the heart-stopping sequel to Variant—which Pittacus Lore, author of I Am Number Four, praised as "an intense journey with some of the most shocking twists and turns I've ever read." 
    Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy's deadly rules and brutal gangs. He thought that the worst was over. 
    But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison—a town filled with familiar faces. Classmates from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed. 
    They are all pawns in the school's twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. And while Benson struggles to figure out who, if anyone, can be trusted, he discovers that Maxfield Academy's plans are darker than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

    - You want to speak one of the dominant languages in North America.
     
    - You want to know the language that has strongly influenced English.
     
    - You want to charm those around you by learning the language of love.
     
    - You want to grasp enough French to travel to French-speaking countries.

    French is not only a beautiful language but more popular than you may realize here in North American, plus it is spoken in over five continents. There is just a myriad of reasons why learning French is such a great idea.
     
    Here in the United States, many people do already speak Spanish as a second language. However, French is quite another story; it can make you seem more appealing and stand out more in demand, opening up all sorts of opportunities—especially in the work force.
     
    Career Enhancement – An employer is going to be more likely to hire someone who knows more than one language than one who only speaks English. It allows to communicate with important French-speaking only clients in a way that they can understand. You may also get to travel more for the job if you show your boss your initiative.
     
    Education Opportunity – France is one of the most desirable country where you can study abroad. Imagine being able to go to Paris and understand what people are saying. When you have a rudimentary idea of the language, you will find that you can travel to France and expand your knowledge.
     
    Culture and Cuisine – When you know French, you can explore the cultures freely in many French-speaking places, even here within the United States, without having language barrier. Besides that, when you go out to a French restaurant, you’ll be able to read the menu and understand it without having to ask the waiter or waitress to translate, and fully enjoy the authentic French dining experience.
     
    Romance and Attraction – French is the language of love. Imagine wooing that special someone by speaking French to them and making them feel special. No matter what you say to someone, it always sounds more lovely in French.
     
    If you want to start learning French, the "5-Day French Language Challenge" is your easy, no-hassle ticket to journeying into the French language that is going to really get you up to speed in no time.
