The Haunting - book cover picture

I FIRST READ THIS BOOK WHEN I WAS ABOUT EIGHT YEARS OLD (IN A READER'S DIGEST CONDENSED BOOK). I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED WITH GHOST STORIES AND I STILL FEEL THIS IS ONE THE VERY BEST EVER WRITTEN.,SHIRLEY JACKSON HAD SUCH AN UNUSUAL IMAGINATION AND A GIFT FOR DETAIL THAT KEPT THE READER MYSTIFIED. I FELT THAT THE REMAKE OF THE 1963 CLASSIC WAS AWFUL, THE SET WAS OVERLY DONE THE SPECIAL EFFECTS WERE'NT IN KEEPING WITH THE SUBTLENESS OF THE BOOK WHICH IS JUST WHY THE ORIGINAL WORKS. I THOUGHT ONLY THEO WAS RIGHT IN THE NEW VERSION. THE CHILDREN AND HER GREAT GRANDMOTHER AND OTHER 'IMPROVEMENTS' WERE TOTALLY STUPID.

Aftermath : A Novel of Suspense - book cover picture

I've enjoyed Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series for many years. His superb storytelling skills have made this series one of my absolute favorites. The characters are always unique and well thought out; the stories are interesting with different twists. Aftermath is no exception. Personally, Banks is at an impasse with the women in his life. Professionally, he's at his peak. The storyline is not necessarily unique but the telling is. Terence Payne, the bad guy, is badder than most; his crimes are even worse. Throw in some more thought-provoking discussion on wife abuse, an horrific tale of child abuse and its aftermath and you've got an A-one story. Don't miss this one.

A great author and professor!

Physical Chemistry - book cover picture

Prof. Ira Levine - the author of this text -- teaches at my alma mater, Brooklyn College. When I was an undergraduate, I was fortunate enough to take him for both semesters of Physical Chemistry. I must admit that he is both a wonderful lecturer and a great author. Any serious Physical Chemistry student should consider his textbook, which is clearly, written and well-organized. If you have any questions regarding my experiences with the textbook and/or lectures, feel free to e-mail me.

The Teddy Bears' Picnic - book cover picture

Because I am a deadhead I was drawn to buy this book not only for myself but also for my children. Jerry Garcia is able to tell a wonderful story using music. Jerry and David form a great team and tell great stories together. This book is not only for children but also for anyone who loves a good story teller(s). I would reccommend this book to anyone who has children and to those who want to enjoy a great moment with their children. Jerry Garcia is a legend who's music, book, and spirit will live on with all who were blessed to hear and share in his wonderful music making and now story telling.

Smoke your way to heaven.


Book title: Thank You for Smoking
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Thank You for Smoking - book cover picture

Christopher Buckley has struck gold with Thank You for Smoking. Not since the 1997 blockbuster hit Alien Resurreciton, have I been made to sympathize with such an abominable character. Just as Jean-Pierre Jeunet made us sympathize with the mutant ali-human children of the Ellen Ripley clone, Buckley made me love the nasty, carcenogenic Nick Naylor. The connection between director Jeunet and author Buckley is the ability to make readers and viewers sympathize with immanent death. Only a truly talented individual could make a human sympathize with the natural element against which evolution has fought. Buckley has done just this. Nick Naylor, knowing that smoking in hazardous to human health, spends his career convincing the American public otherwise. He impregnates an entire nation's chest with certain death. But Buckley manages to make us love Nick, who is doing nothing more than persuing the American Dream by any means necessary.

Seasons 11-12, Complete

The Simpsons Beyond Forever!: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family...Still Continued - book cover picture

The first book covers seasons 1-8. This third book in the series, like the second book only covers two seasons: 11 and 12. Each episode gets a two page spread, while many of the episodes in the first book only had one page. This allows far greater detail to be covered, just as in the second book.I keep all (currently) three books near the TV, and I'll review the pages for each episode before I watch the rerun. In doing so, it opens my eyes to a lot of the little details that I missed the first fifty times I saw the episode.Essentially, this is the owners manual for seasons 11 and 12.

A first time Zelazny reader (will not be the last)


Book title: Lord of Light
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Lord of Light - book cover picture

The only bad thing that I can think to say of this book is that is a bit disjointed (ok, a lot disjointed). But I'm used to reading John Barth and Philip K. Dick novels; they are good preparation for the jumpy narrative and time line. If you can stand to be perplexed for the better part of each chapter (as to exact time and character/s that your dealing with), than you'll absolutely love this book. If you're easily confused or are looking for a quick read, than you may want to look else where.

With that aside, I would compare the battle scenes to a more poetic Robert Jordan. You know...back when his novels had action in them. Zelazny truly has command of the language he uses to describe fighting.

I'm a Sci-Fi fan and I highly recommend this.

Black Mass : The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob - book cover picture

This is by far one of the best books I have ever read. Lehr and o'Neill relate the amazing story of the twisted connection between the Bulger family, the community of Boston and "Southie", and the Boston office of the FBI. I could not put this book down. After reading a few chapters I was desparate for news on the Bulger case, and the story continues to unfold to this day. Whitey Bulger is still at large and on the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list, FBI agent John Connolly was recently sentenced for his crimes, and Billy Bulger was, until this past August, President of the University of Massachusetts system. Connections between Billy and Whitey are still being drawn by government agencies and prosecutors and refuted by Billy and the FBI. Read this book and you will be swept with a new hobby: keeping yourself aware of new developments in the Bulger case. You don't have to be a Bostonian to appreciate this story. And it's all true!

Attempting a review of "In Search of Lost Time" is comparable to being a mediocre art critic trying to critique the Sistine Chapel: one feels unworthy of the task of dissecting a work which transcends criticism and imbues the reader with a vision so compelling and profound, it will change how he sees himself, his relationships, and the world around him. And so, in lieu of a typical review, here's a final plea: read the whole book, and then read it again, read a couple a pages for the rest of your life.
