The 158-Pound Marriage - book cover picture

"The 158 Pound Marriage" is another example of John Irving at his best. He masterfully explores the consequences of infidelity in a modern marriage through a story of two couples, each in love with another's spouse. Though the wrestling imagery can get tiresome after a while, it's a fitting theme for a book whose characters are wrestling with the choices they have made in their marriages. The characters are all well developed, and the non-linear plot flows with ease. The one warning I would give is not to pick up this book looking for another "Garp." There is, was, and will always be only one "Garp." Let "The 158 Pound Marriage" stand on its own merits and you will not be disappointed.

The Great Train Robbery - book cover picture

I read TGTR back my sophomore year in HS- almost 4 years ago. And even today, I find myself recommending this book to all my friends who haven't read it.Pierce is one of the greatest, most alluring anti-heroes I've ever encountered. His ability to plan, his patience, his genius seems to seep from the pages.When Pierce decides that he's going to rob a train, it takes over a year for him to plan, with the help of the screwsman Agar, Pierce's mistress/actress Miriam, and several others of the lowest scum of the Victorian Era.We're tossed back in time, when the age of consent was a mere 12 years, when pick-pocketing could have been put down as a profession, when saying you were an actress was just like saying you were a whore, and when people were afraid of "premature burial" so much that they put little bells on the hands of corpses for them to rign if they awoke!Anyone who loves history, mystery, adventure, and the dark side of humanity- this is a must read!

Amazing


Book title: The Outsiders
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Outsiders - book cover picture

This is the most amazing book I have ever read. I feel like I know each charactor personally because each one is so well described and had such a significant part in the book. I can relate each charactor so well, but especially Dally. I can read this book five times through and still cry. This book reaches out to me, and sooo many of my friends have gotten hooket on it, too. The Outsiders is an example how boys can be sensitive, but still be tough. And it gives a great example of how friends can be closer to you than family. If I had to choose one book to read over and over again, this would be it.

It easier to destroy an atom instead a prejudice , stated in certain opportunity Albert Einstein.

Contrary Opinion: Using Sentiment to Chart the Markets - book cover picture

What you will come to know in several years can be assimilated in little time with this book written by the master. Because most people are going towards electronic trading, they are devoid of the emotions that people have witnessed in the trading pits. Often times, things that are percieved in a convoluted way are at the human level pychologically simple, and that is what this book is taking you towards. Everything good and nothing bad.

Visualization is the trick

Centered Riding (A Trafalgar Square Farm Book) - book cover picture

Sally Swift encourages you to visualize your riding by thinking of cartoons that range from legs looking like fire hoses to hands caressing birds. These pictures really help one's riding.

I love this book, but its even better if you get the accompanying video and hear Sally's voice. A rider with back problems she overcame them by learning how to center and balance.

This is a fine book for gaining a really solid seat. It covers the basics of English riding - walk, trot, canter, jumping - but also describes how to do half-halts, circles, turns, leg yielding and more advanced dressage movements.

The book is a classic reference and if you only buy one riding book this might be it. It leads you from head knowledge to the feel of riding.

Wally Lamb's "Shes Come Undone" is an amazing read

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

If anyone has every felt mass amounts of heartache then they can easily relate to this book. Lamb expresses a female's point of view in a way that I didn't think a male was capable of. The rashness of Dolores's actions in this book are spell binding. The story keeps you wrapped into it tightly untill you can no longer stand to put it down because you can't wait to find out what the conclusion is. I think that everyone should read this(atleast every female) because this book is one amazing eye opener and will change your perspective on amny things when you have finished it. It's a must read!

A New Holiday Tradition


Book title: I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie - book cover picture

Alison Jackson has written a superb take-off on the classic, I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. In this very funny, very hip rendering, the old lady with an unbelievable appetite, swallows first the pie, the very pie she brought to the Thanksgiving feast. This is followed by a jug of cider..."to moisten the pie which was really too dry", then a roll, a squash, the salad, the turkey and on and on.....With each addition, she grows bigger and fatter to the delight and amusement of the family children and the horror of their parents, as they watch their entire holiday meal disappear. Ms Jackson's text is complimented by Judith Byron Schachner's wonderfully expressive and detailed illustrations. Together they have authored a holiday classic, complete with charming, surprise ending, that will be enjoyed by your family for many years to come.

Princess in Love (The Princess Diaries, Vol. 3) - book cover picture

I throughly enjoyed this book. The first one was great, but the second one wasn't too earth-shattering. The reason I liked this book is that it finally tied up some plot lines that have been going from book one. (I won't say what plot lines, I wouldn't want to spoil it.) (You can probably guess anyway.)

Unfortunately, this is the last book in the series that I truly loved. Books 4, 4.5, and 5 are pretty stupid at times-- though Meg Cabot still writes with a solid teenage voice.

All the King's Men - book cover picture

Okay...So it's huge with tiny print but if you read it the eye doctor bills are definitely worth it! On the surface it is great story of politics and power and you can definitly see this book as the model for Primary Colors...The only part that bothered me was the end...i didn't like how Jack married Anne...Oh well, nothings perfect...One recommendation: Check out the Cliff Notes...They really give some interesting insights into the various "Triangle Relationships"...Read this book!
