My Story

Who I am:

My name is Elias Beamish. I am an author, a philosopher, and a political theorist. I have become enamored with the worlds of thought and action, and I hope to share with you some of that joy and inspiration. Keep reading, and I will explain something about each of these projects.

The Eleventh Hour

828 Book Reviews

We have made quality our habit. It’s not something that we just strive for – we live by this principle every day.

828 Book Reviews is a YouTube channel dedicated to reviewing books in an analytical yet spoiler-free way. The books covered vary wildly, from famous philosophical treatises to children's books to fantasy to history books to textbooks. Most reviews are short and palatable, but others go far more in depth and can reach the length of several hours.

The review is built around an analysis of the text and the book itself, leaving aside contemplation of the author or other works they may have produced. The book is looked at for its quality of writing, pacing, style, structural elements, accuracy, enjoyment, and other such facets while largely ignoring specific plot elements so as to let the audience read the book themselves without it being ruined.
