SF/Fantasy books with a 'big reveal'?

RecoFilter: I'm looking for recommendations of books, preferably in the sci-fi/fantasy genres, that have a 'big reveal' somewhere in there that changes the whole perspective of the book or protagonist. Examples would be The Inverted World, The Prestige, or Ender's Game, for example, or the first Star Trek film, or some Lovecraft stories — the whole thing, and all events narrated, appear in a different light after, you know?

I just watched two seasons of Toddlers and Tiaras. I need help.

I'm sick. I'm watching a lot of Netflix. Specifically, I've been watching a lot of Toddlers and Tiaras. At first I didn't know what had come over me, but I think...I just like watching kids get interviewed about their lives? Even if their lives are ridiculous? I'm in my early thirties and I'm also super into those AT&T commercials so maybe it's a biological clock thing, but I'm too exhausted to second-guess myself about it. I know John & Kate + 8 exists, but that's just as gross and exploitative as T&T, as far as I can tell. I loved the 7 Up documentaries and also enjoyed Babies. What other recommendations for reality TV/documentary film about kids, pitched to adults, do you have for me? Bonus points if it's online. Thanks!

Should I give a bad recommendation?

A service company (an ISP who has crossed into communications) has asked if a potential client of theirs, with a similar configuration to our company, can contact me for a review of the ISP's phone service in contemplation of using the ISP for their phones. However, the equipment is terrible, there are voice quality and tech support issues, and their backend is woefully unprepared to deal with an organization that is geographically distributed (which is one of the similarities they will be asking about). Should I decline or give the people my honest opinion? [more inside]

Seeking music recommendations!

I tend to love specific songs rather than whole albums. My taste isn't hugely eclectic— I guess I lean towards melodic music, mostly folksy, some classical. I'm partial to hamonies, to the violin, to women's voices, and perhaps to melancholy music! I'm looking for new music and it's been a while since I found anything new I loved. Help me with recommendations—more details inside. I'd be absolutely thrilled with recommendations of specific songs from unexplored genres that I might enjoy. I'd also love any insights on the sort of music I seem to enjoy. [more inside]

Comics for 11- and 13-year-old girls?

Taking the girls I babysit to the comic shop on Thursday. They love the Marvel movieverse (the 11-year-old adores Loki) the 13-year-old like the volume of Runaways she's read. If the John Rogers Blue Beetle run wasn't out of print I'd have already gotten it for them. Suggestions? Stuff they can't find in trade I am willing to hunt down in digital format.

Help me get out (of the apartment that is).

Long time lurker, first time poster ;) Problem: I am a single 30 year old guy who moved from downtown Seattle to the suburbs of Boston (Marlborough to be exact), for work. As you can imagine this is a somewhat of a difficult adjustment given that I love city life and being able to walk around town and not having to use my car! I used to work for a big name online retailer headquartered in downtown Seattle, and even though living and working in downtown was great, I missed out on quite a lot of fun the city life has generally to offer, primarily due to the working hours. That being said, my new job, still in the suburbs and further west from where I live (and Boston), affords a lot more time. I'd like to go out and experience the city (both Boston and New York).

Best kickboxing DVDs?

I bought a Groupon for a month at a local kickboxing place and enjoyed it, but alas, joining apparently involves a year-long commitment at $120/month. In the interest of continuing to get into better shape while not racking up a massive bill, what DVDs would MeFis recommend? I can potentially do partner drills with my husband, or use the reflex bag we have as a target. Heavy bag work is probably out for space/structural reasons. (If it matters, I am in decent cardio shape but definitely don't have much in the way of upper body strength - I can maybe do 3-5 full pushups before I have to switch to my knees.)

Contemporary Spanish language fiction recommendations

I would like some recommendations for contemporary Spanish language fiction. I would like recommendations for authors who might not be well known outside of the Spanish-speaking world and not as likely to be translated, who write literary fiction. I am already familiar with authors well known outside the Spanish-speaking world, such as Borges, Mario Vargas Llosa, Isabel Allende, Gabriel García Márquez. So I would like recommendations that expand my Spanish language reading horizon. For reference, English-language authors I enjoyed reading recently include Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, and Margaret Atwood. (Portuguese language recommendations are also welcome, as I can read in both languages.)
