Across the Wall : A Tale of the Abhorsen and Other Stories - book cover picture

I loved reading this new collection of stories. The newer takes on the classic stories made them fun to read again, while the small glimpse back into the world of Ancelstierre and the Old Kingdom gave me another taste of one of the best series' that I've read. Garth Nix' style of writing in all of the stories in this book made me want to read the whole thing cover to cover in one sitting, and the personal introductions for each tale helped to make me feel a little closer to each story.

The Clan of the Cave Bear (Earth's Children (Paperback)) - book cover picture

A historical,adventuress,love story, all rolled into one could'nt put down book. Auel really did her homework, in this epic,(and all the other books in this series I've read all four of them.)Ayla is a heroine, whom you'd love to get to known she portrayed her so real, and a wonderful person.The book might be considered boring to others but, I feel the amount of research put in and gathering prehistoric iceage information wasn't easy for the author.I just wish she'd pull her socks up bit and hurry to finish the last book, I'm sure everyone is eager to know how it all ends.

A wonderful book, the best of its kind

The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL - book cover picture

This book is chalk-full of useful example code. There are over 600 sample scripts - far more than any other SQL book. The code in the book is worth the price all by itself.Another thing I liked about the book is Henderson's singular ability for explaining thick technical concepts in a manner anyone can understand. I suspect he is a trainer or professor by trade, but I'm just guessing. He seems to anticipate the kinds of questions readers would ask were they able and answers them in advance. His conversational approach is friendly without being hackneyed. He educates you in a subtle, yet thorough fashion, in the manner you would expect, well, a guru to do.Bottom line: get this book if you want to become a T-SQL guru yourself.

Not just for young adults

Twilight - book cover picture

I am a big vampire genre fan, so when I saw this book in a magazine, it caught my eye. I have to admit, I felt a little funny even thinking of buying it, because it is listed and shelved as a young adult book. Well, I decided to "bite" the bullet, and I purchased it, curled up with it over a weekend, and could not put it down. Don't let the fact that you have to visit a different section of the book store stop you from reading it, (or of course, purchase it on Amazon, no one will ever know if you don't want them too). This is a really great book with real emotions all wrapped up in a vampire story, a young woman's story of having to grow up faster then she maybe should have because of her parents, and yet still dealing with all the issues that growing up brings with it. All in all, a great book, glad I decided to overlook the age description.

A Clash of Kings - book cover picture

The best fantasy novel I have ever read. This book brings the characters to life and makes them a real as any one I know. I have read the first three books and have hooked most of my family and half my friends on the series. We are all eagerly awaiting the publishing of A Feast for Crows. Whenever I talk with my family we can't help to have a discussion about these books or speculate on what Mr. Martin has in store for us all.

Great text for those interested in nephrology

Book title: Primer on Kidney Diseases
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Primer on Kidney Diseases - book cover picture

I am a medicine resident interested in nephrology. This book starts out with the basics of renal anatomy/physiology, approach to patients with kidney disease, and goes on to define/classify, and provide an outline for diagnosis/therapy of common kidney disorders. Its depth suits perfectly medicine residents, and probably, as others have mentioned, fellows starting their training. Those looking for a more in-depth text might consider Johnson&Feehaly's Comprehensive Clinical nephrology.

What You Wanna Know: Backstreet Boys Secrets Only a Girlfriend Can Tell - book cover picture

I loved this book.I was also worried about it being a tell all. It is not. I think Samantha did a amazing job writing this. I learned a lot and also see that the rise to the number one spot had it's prices. I loved the pictures. They are not to personal. There is one with Brian with his shirt off! The cover of a recent magazine shows more! I feel this book is enjoyable to read and in no way is it ugly to the Backstreet boys.

A weird little guilty pleasure read

Book title: Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers - book cover picture

Who knew a morbid topic like cadavers could provide such a fertile source for humor? I found myself laughing out loud many times while reading this odd but fascinating book. Early on the author states that Stiff is not about the process of dying or the loss of loved ones which are decidedly unfunny topics. It's all about the curious things that human kind has done with the dead over the centuries. Yes, much of it is rather gruesome but it's written in such a humourous and tasteful way as not to be offensive (strange as that may sound). This is not subject matter that most people would be apt to admit an interest in, however there must be a reason there are so many popular "morgue" shows on TV. While certainly not for everyone, if you've ever been curious about the "lives" of cadavers, this one will not disappoint. 4.5 stars.
