I have to say that I loved this book. I love to read mysteries, and I want to go into Law Enforcement after I graduate, so when I read mysteries I tend to rate them more then I do other books. I know that James Patterson has two series going at the moment, however I have only read the books containing the "murder club". I think this is one of the better mysteries I have read this year. I love it when upon finishing a book I haven't figured out all of the clues. I had no idea where this book was going to end, and it didn't end where I thought it would. I love to be surprised, and even more I love it when an ending isn't really an ending....like in this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and the feeling of urgent need to know what is going to happen next. I just couldn't put this book down once I started it. I read it all in one day. The beginning is a little slow, but the book is worth the wait once you get into it. Enjoy!

Me Talk Pretty One Day - book cover picture

I want more! This book was very funny, easy to read and sad to finish (only because I did not want it to end.)The chapters are all thoughts on random events about Sedaris' life. The topics are Seinfeld-ish. They range from talking about a large poo left in the toliet to realizing that he sounds so bad speaking French he just stops talking. The stories get better as you move on so don't become discouraged if you don't like the beginning of the book.I would not recommend this as a gift for a grandparent, an in-law or someone you don't know well as the subject matter may offend. Also, if you're into amazingly well written colorful language, this book may not be for you. His writing style is simple and colorful, but not in a descriptive way.However, if you're looking for a quick read, a good laugh and an escape from your problems, give this book a try.

It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life - book cover picture

A very candid account of the life of one of best athletes in the world. Sure it's a great account of the world of a professional cyclist. However, it is more than just another athlete's account of how a regular person from a humble background becomes a hero. Armstrong is both honest and a bit brash, but most importantly it is almost impossible to walk away from this book without getting the feeling that we are truly fortunate to be alive. That we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our friends and families. As long as you are a survivor you have the chance to be special. Good story, great inspiration.

Better than 2001


Book title: 2010: Odyssey Two
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
2010: Odyssey Two - book cover picture

The characters in 2010 are a little more "real" than the ones in 2001. You get Heywood Floyd's personal struggles and emotions, not just one single part with him in as in 2001. The ideas in 2010 are eerily real: joint US/Russian space missions at odds with the Chinese (who have sworn than, by 2010, they will land on the Moon I kid you not). We explore a little more of Hal and the Monolith and some questions are answered that were not answered in 2001.

Overall this was a more than worthy sequel to 2001. I highly recommend it. Much better than its movie counterpart.

Transcending gender and orientation -- an honest love story.


Book title: While England Sleeps
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
While England Sleeps - book cover picture

Visiting my local library to hopefully pick up Arkansas (David Leavitt's latest collection), I found this book instead. I'm not gay or male, but I love reading love stories of all types. This one is so pure and heartfelt, it transcends gender, orientation, time, place, etc. Taking place both in present day Hollywood and Europe during the Spanish Civil War, it tells the universal story of, basically, being ashamed of your lover--and realizing too late that nothing matters but how you really feel inside. The book has both funny and tragic moments and even though terrible things happen, in the end I just felt a great reward. Now I'm looking forward even more to reading Arkansas, which has received great reviews. While England Sleeps should not be missed if you like this author's work

The Joy Luck Club, by JY


Book title: The Joy Luck Club
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Joy Luck Club - book cover picture

I read this book for a school project and am very pleased with the overall story. The stories for each character were intriguing and kept me reading to find out what happens next.
Each daughter/mother pair has a different relationship that they are each trying to figure out. The mothers find that they have passed on their misfortunes to their daughters, while the daughters themselves are not aware of it, because of their need to rebel against their mothers. Growing up in an American society, with Chinese influences is hard for the girls, which is the reason why they do not understand their mothers' views.
The novel was an excellent quality piece and I would recommend it to almost anyone. Even some of the male population should try it out, because they might be pleasantly surprised.

Tom Sawyer was a great book! I really enjoyed it.It might bring alot of memories to your mind of your young childhood.It displays the characteristics of a young boy in the 1800s who is experiencing the adventures of childhood. It has a wide variety of dialects and characters who can make you feel histarical,sad, and anxious. It is a great book for the young reader, and gives a detailed idea of what life was like in that time.Twain displays a great amount of humor and character from his time,and is known for this type of writing.Guaranteed, you will love this book after reading it, and probably want to read it again because I know I do.

This is just one of many great books written by Lurlene McDaniel. It is the story of a girl named Carley who meets a guy named Kyle at the hospital, and they become close friends.

Therefore, he cannot see that Carley has a facial deformity. Carley is afraid that once Kyle's bandages are removed from his eyes, he won't like her anymore. I won't give anymore away, because you should go out and buy this book and read it yourself! I promise that you will not regret it!
