I normal don't enjoy reading but I started reading this and I could not but it down once, it only took me 3 days to read the 400pg book, keep up the good work i look forward to reading more. It was just interesting to read because it seems so real that all of this does and will happen to many people, also i am glad that Stella got exactly what she wanted.

Shedding light on performing Debussy

Book title: Debussy in Performance
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Debussy in Performance - book cover picture

This is a wonderful collection of 11 essays on how to perform Debussy's works. It approaches the problem from both historical and modern analysis perspectives. Several essays focus on how Debussy and those who worked with him approached performance of his works. Others use modern analysis techniques to shed light on how to perform Debussy's most intricate works. Particularly pleasant for pianists like me are two essays: "Debussy and Early Debussystes at the Piano" by Cecilia Dunoyer which surveys what can be learned from historical recordings and writings; and "Timbre, Voice Leading, and the Musical Arabesque in Debussy's Piano Music" by Jann Passler who selects two example works and analyses their melodic structure (not a simple task in Debussy's music) to better understand their interpretation. All the essays are very targeted and informative about how Debussy's intentions. A must-have for those who really want to understand Debussy's music.

The Castle of Llyr (Chronicles of Prydain (Paperback)) - book cover picture

The Castle of Llyr is such a wonderful addition to the Prydain Cronicles. After finding out that someone I knew was named after the series I decided to re-read them since I read them when I was very young. I remembered them as great books, and they still are. The Clastle of Llyr character's are wonderful, some new some old. I already have started the next book. I love Lloyd Alexander's books, I think that he is one of the best fantasy writers I have read. If you like adventure/fantasty you will enjoy this book, and teh others of the Prydain Chronicles. Enjoy!

White Oleander : A Novel (Oprah's Book Club) - book cover picture

This book was by far one of my favorite books that i have ever read. Astrid is a very unigue character and anyone could find something about her to relate to. White Oleander takes you from a girl lost in the world with her scicotic mom to many different foster moms and houses along the way. This book is a journey through life and really teaches you a lot about the way things are in this world and just how messed up people can really be. One thing i definately learned from this book was to be thankful for what I do have and don't take things for granit because one day they could be gone. I would suggest this book to any one who has ever been lost in the world and just not knowing what to do and i am sure that everyone has felt like this one time or another.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet : A Novel - book cover picture

Rushdie proves it again. In all his books, he kept his style; characters are total fiction; you read them without developing any attachment to them. It is his powerful style of writing that brings about this effect. As in painting we should not look for any resemblance to nature and it should be beautiful and pleasing in its own way, Rushdie' novels have those potential of gripping the reader without actually giving him/her any "hangover". It is beautiful in having its own form.I have not yet finished the novel. I was tempted to read the novel after hearing so "negative" remarks. But to my relief, Rushdie has not compromised on anything and his novel stands out way apart. I will stop now and will write more about the novel after I read it completely.

Scholarly yet accessible acct of a fantastic composer

Book title: Lou Harrison: Composing a World
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Lou Harrison: Composing a World - book cover picture

This is a delightful book, scholarly yet fully accessible to the layman. It deals with a contemporary American composer, Lou Harrison, who is finally getting the critical recognition he deserves as the creator of one of the richest, most melodic, most wide-ranging and eclectic musical canons of our time. This is the first significant critical work on Harrison and is important just for that. But it will also appeal to those interested in the interplay between politics and music in the 20th century, especially pacificism and the arts, and to those interested in the gay rights movement and the key role of gay artists in contemporary music. Though co-authored, the book is written in a seamless, graceful style, and it is organized for easy skimming and sampling. Nevertheless, it is fully documented and full of ideas and directions for further scholarship and research. The wonderful accompanying CD enriches the book enormously and makes the whole package a bargain.

Civil War: A Narrative (3 Vol. Set) - book cover picture

As a native southerner and educated in the public schools before integration, I thought I knew the history of the War Between the States, I was wrong. I had the good fortune to read this tome before Ken Burns Civil war series ran on PBS. The series is execellent ,but I had a much deeper understanding having read Foote's excellent history. If you are intersted in this portion of U.S. history you can't do better than this.

April 1865: The Month That Saved America - book cover picture

I recently choose April 1865 for a university seminar (as an adult returning student completing a BS degree.) It truly explains the events, characters, the "whys" this nation was plunged into the Civil War and how statesmen (both North and South) worked together to reunite woven states and labored to form a true United States. This book is a "keeper"----to be read and reread and its great story not forgotten.

Yes, this book is good for English speakers

The New Oxford Picture Dictionary English Russian (Oxford American English) - book cover picture

As a department of defense trained russian linguist, i can tell you that this book is useful for english speakers learning russian. Russian pronunciation is fairly straightforward, and should only take a couple of days to learn. (if you don't have a source for listening, you don't have any business trying to learn a language like russian anyhow) After pronunciation is learned, this book is an excellent learning tool, because it is far more useful to learn the language using the cyrillic. This helps both russian language reading skills, and sight retention of foreign words, one of the hardest and most useful things to learn.No, it's not an easy book to learn with, so some might be turned off, but if you're truly committed to working hard at learning russian, than this book will teach valuable skills and vocabulary.
