A Book every Mom Should Have!!!

The Runaway Bunny - book cover picture

A book about a mother's unconditional love, this book is best when shared! It was a favorite with all three of my sons when they were little - it was also a favorite of mine. This is definitely a "snuggle up" kind of book; it's warm and fuzzy without being silly. The little bunny dreams up creative ways of running away and the mother bunny comes up with ways of bringing him back that are lovingly creative. If you know a new mom (or are one yourself) be sure they have a copy of this classic.

The Great American Novel?

Book title: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay - book cover picture

Believe everything that you've heard about this book. It's an ambitious book that reminds you of a time when writers believed in themselves and believed in the Holy Grail of The Great American Novel. Critics will feel uncomfortable about the expansiveness and the scope of the novel and their comments will be reminiscent of criticism of Twain's Huck Finn. There are times when we need to know the greatness in life and simply relish it, enjoy it as much as we can. Mr. Chabon has given us such a gift with this book. In short, Michael Chabon is the Michael Jordan of the literary world right now. Relish his achievements.

This is the best book!

Come Together : A Novel - book cover picture

I loved this book. I started reading it on a plane on my way to board a cruise. I didn't put it down until I was done (about 1/2 way through the cruise). I loved the alternating chapters of 'he said, she said'. I thought it was very creative and unlike any book I've read in the past. The chapter set-up didn't confuse me at all.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the 'Chick Lit' genre.
There is a sequel to this book, 'Come Again'. It is about the friends of the two main characters in 'Come Together' preparing for their special day. I didn't get past the 1st chapter...didn't like it.

A nice variety of information about the English style

Bringing It Home: England : The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Feeling of England in Your Home (Bringing It Home) - book cover picture

I like this book because it addresses a diverse range of topics on how to achieve the English style. It describes the origin of each decorating tradition, offering an explanation or rationale for why something is characterized as "English," rather than just laying out a blueprint to follow. I also liked that cooking was incorporated into the book, and several appealing photos of food and recipes are provided.

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

I had to read this book as a summer reading book in elementary school. I expected it to be really boring, I really hate being forced to read books for school, but after finally getting around to starting it, I couldn't put it down. The book starts out with the main character, 13 year old Charlotte, being forced to sail home from her school for young ladies alone. At first the writing reflects a very prim and proper young lady- nothing out of the ordinary- but that soon changes as Charlotte is forced to choose between what society would expect her to do and what she believes is right. Charlotte grows so much during the course of the story and finally begins to discover who she is, not what others have always told her she had to be. It is a wonderful coming of age adventure novel. I would reccomend this book to anyone who enjoys watching a character grow-up. Don't decide it must be boring just because it is something your parents actually want you to read.

Lucky to have read the original

Hitty : Her First Hundred Years - book cover picture

After reading some of the other reviews, I feel myself fortunate to have read Hitty in the original. I was unaware it had been edited. I can't think of anything offensive, other than one passage of dialogue spoken by a black family, which might sound sterotypical to modern ears. But, similar dialogue occurs in Huckleberry Finn. Has that been "scrubbed"? I don't think so.

Anyhow, what a beautiful story. It's really interesting to see the world from her point of view. She spent years hidden away in a couch, among other places, which was like a time machine for her. I had fun answering this question: Did Hitty know that by the time she was sold at auction in the Preble house, that she had outlived Phoebe? That Phoebe had grown up, married, had children and died? She never says so, but I think she does know. She has the strength and maturity not to have to be explict. I really hope Hitty had warm, fond memories of her first owner, Phoebe.

Tear down that wall

Book title: When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan
Rating: 5/5

When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan - book cover picture

Noonan makes a great case for Reagan being a great President. I think a little is hero-worship for someone she worked closely for the white house but nevertheless she backs it up with stories throughout his life of how he demonstrated character and did what he said he would do as President. Also her insider approach allows the reader to learn more about the man than we thought we knew. I think the most interesting part is how Ronnie stuck to his guns in dealing with the Soviet leadership and it proved to be the right thing to do. He was a leader who didn't do a mission-shift midway through his presidency nor did he lead by polls. Personally, I think Noonan jumped around a little too much at the beginning but I still give it 5 stars as I could not seem to put it down. Even though I admired Reagan before, my admiration grew as I read this book.

Great reading !

The Inflationary Universe: The Quest for a New Theory of Cosmic Origins - book cover picture

I've loved to read this book, because it has this double face:
on one hand it is a very readable and fascinating popular
introduction to a piece of current research, namely inflation,
by one of its main actors, something that doesn't really
happen all too often. On the other hand, it is about the
personal story of that same actor, (A. Guth), so that one
gets a feeling of the life of a young scientist. Each
of the faces would make a good book ; here you get both in
one volume.

If you thought the movie was good - READ THE BOOK

Book title: Mystic River
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Mystic River - book cover picture

"Mystic River" -- by Dennis Lehane - all I can say is if you thought the movie was good, you should read the book! It is a only one of its kind - intelligent, gripping, suspenseful - everything that you would want in a novel and much more. I compare it to: "I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb, "Memoriors of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden, and "When It Rains" by Marjorie Spoto, in unique storytelling and "The Davinci Code" by Dan Brown in suspense and storyline. A must read!
