4.75 stars, but still a great book

Book title: A Clash of Kings
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Clash of Kings - book cover picture

This book is truly in a class of its own. Martin has successfully written a literary masterpiece in both "A Game Of Thrones" and " A Clash Of Kings". The reason that this book did not recieve the five stars fully is because it does have its flaws. For one, Martin has created such a large amount of characters that it is inevitable that he must evenntually kill some of them off. Second, the skipping around between characters can be very annoying and it often breaks the flow of the story, but other than these two things, Martin has the workings of one of the most promising high fantasy epics going for him in the Song of Ice and Fire series. This story is even more complex than the Wheel of Time and it has even greater character developement.

Fifteen (Avon Camelot Books (Paperback)) - book cover picture

This was the first "romance" novel I read. Of course, that was 20 years ago and yet, I never forgot about it. I remember something about Stan giving Jane his ID bracelet. Just thinking about it still gives me butterflies in my stomach. Now I'm a mother of a 6 year old daughter and I am ordering this book to save for her when I think she's ready for it. She already loves to read and thinks Grease is the BEST movie, so I think she'll love this book, don't you?

A Breach in the Watershed (Watershed Trilogy, Book 1) - book cover picture

This book is a well written piece of fantasy. It does real credit to the category. I liked the way that the author altered the names of the races: digger=dwarf, sylve=elf, sartor=satyr, gigant=giant, and so forth. It is that type of creativity that really adds depth to a novel. I knew that with a comment from R.A. Salvatore on it, that the book had to be very good material. Truly enjoyable. The only thing I did not like, though, was the lack of explanation as to exactly what the "Watershed" is. It is a vital part of the book, yet I don't ever remember seeing where there was a definite, direct definition given. Other than that mild thing, it was fantastic.

This Book Brought Tears to My Eyes!

Three Comrades - book cover picture

I have never ever read such a great book! I just put it down and ran to write a review about it. I had to stop in the bathroom to wash my face because I have been crying for the past hour while I was reading it. Mu dear father told me that when he was a little boy in Russia, he read this book and it moved him. I love and respect my father and his thoughts on books, so I read it. I have just bought all of Remarque's books and I am startinf on the Black Oblisk. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this book. It shows how strong the human spirit really is in times of hardship. It shows all of us what is really really important in life. A MUST READ! P.S. KLEENEX IS HIGHLY ADVISED!

An Engaging, gritty narrative

Book title: To End a War
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
To End a War - book cover picture

Ranked as on of the top 11 books of the year by the New York Times, To End a War lives up to the glowing accolades on its back cover and inside pages. This cognizant narrative is clear cut and blunt, and as close to suspenseful as a nonfiction book on diplomatic negotiations can be. Holbrooke easily documents an important moment in history, raising interesting questions, and using this memoir as a call to action for the superpowers of the world like the US to step in. While he has been critisized for making the US sound good, such criticisms can only come from a rather dense person. On the contrary his book calls into question the motives of many including the UN, EU, fellow negotiators, and our own Congress, who he blatantly blames for slowing the peace process. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the Yugoslavia mess, or peace studies.

Excellent book about strong women, set in the distant past

Secrets of the Ancient Goddess - book cover picture

This book was hard to put down, the story lines are engrossing, the main characters well drawn and believable.It made a pleasant change to read about strong women on a journey towards enlightenment and understanding. There were many unexpected surprises which had me gripping the pages,bringing home the uncertainty and danger of their lives.In the process I learnt a great deal about prehistoric times, and the journeys women take across the ages on their search for an identity. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it held my attention and interest, I cared about the characters and want to know more about what happens to them after th ebook ends. How about a sequel?

An Anthology of Vietnamese Poems : From the Eleventh through the Twentieth Centuries - book cover picture

This book was actually a textbook for a class on Vietnamese culture and history at the University of Michigan. Since taking the course, I've read it over at least 8 times and continue to find new treasures. I especially adore Ho Xuan Huong, a feminist who wrote humorous, sometimes painfully sad, poetry on sex and her position as a concubine. This is a must-have for Vietnamese-Americans (or I guess anyone)just waking up to the beauty within Vietnamese literature.

The Cold Truth - book cover picture

I had this one figured out halfway through. (Yeah, right.) I changed my mind. I changed it again and then again. With 50 pages to go there were probably five plausible murder suspects. With 10 to go bullets are flying, people are chasing people, the good guys are bad, the bad guys are good and you still don't trust your instincts. Well done, Stone. P.S. The movie: larger than life George C. Scott and Sandra Bullock. (Julia Roberts isn't tough enough.)

The Long Hard Road Out of Hell - book cover picture

but for anyone who believes that they know what Manson is about, because outside of his fans, nobody does. I read this book wanting to know and try to understand what makes Marilyn click, and he has answered all of my questions. This book is a very good read, very interesting, and quite addictive. Marilyn writes about his life experiences which tranformed him into what he is today. He tells you his views on alot of subjects in a very insightful way. After reading this you will understand and will discover that many of his views will make you question things that go on in our world and make you realize a few other truths that perhaps most of us don't like to admit or just never really give alot of thought to. Marilyn is very caring, funny, and a genius. He is usually misunderstood by a widely judgemental and self-rightoues society. So for any one who "thinks" that they know what he is about, read this, and he will succeed in setting the record straight.
