Book Review: The Blonde Theory

The heroine in this book may be drinking too much Bacardi, her IQ and her being a Harvard educated lawyer totally don't match. She seems more like a self-absorbed and foolish high school cheerleader than a partner in a big law firm making a 6 figure salary. The book has too little originality and is extremely annoying. It was trying to copy the elements in "Legally Blonde" and "Sex in the City" but was done badly. The book is so retarded and annoying to read that it's not even funny.

Destruction of History That I Never Knew Until Now

"The Bamiyan Buddhas were shockingly dynamited in February of 2001, after inhabiting their niches for almost fifteen hundred years.  They had been the largest examples of standing /Buddha carvings in the world and had been designated by UNESCO, the United Nation's Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, as a World Heritage site.  Now they lay in a pile of rubble."  quoted from page 257 of this book.

Above are photos of one of the Bamiyan Buddhas before and after its destruction by Taliban.  I never knew about this until now that I'm reading this book....
