A Landmark Book For Cime Fiction....Terrific

Book title: L.A. Confidential
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
L.A. Confidential - book cover picture

James Ellroy's LA Confidential will no doubt go down in history as a landmark work like Chandler's The Big Sleep and Hammett's The Maltese Falcon. Ellroy's style in entirely unique; there is really no one else like him. This novel is told in the noir traditions but with a contemporary writer's touch. Characters as real as the people you know are found in these pages, made even more real by their flaws. If you're one of those who saw the movie but has not read the book, consider this: The movie is amazing. And it cheats the power of this novel. A must-have for any crime fiction fanatic.

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - book cover picture

I heard about the book through a friend and thought 'Ok, yeah, I'll read it when I have time' but I ordered it anyway. As soon as I started the book I could not put it down. It's a fabulous story told from the viewpoint of Elphaba, the 'Wicked Witch of the West', from her childhood until the moment that fatal bucket of water was poured over her intense green skin. I could not stop reading, and as I read I felt fully involved in it, even crying once or twice. This is definitly a book to check out and read, if you don't you'll miss the magic of Elphaba's tale: the good - which was rare, the bad - which she seemed destined to work against, and the ugly - though I have now found the so-called "Wicked Witch" to be a truly beautiful person.

Siblings Without Rivalry: How to Help Your Children Live Together So You Can Live Too - book cover picture

I bought this book because my toddler (2) was being very aggressive toward my newborn. While, I think the theories in this book require at least one child to be emotionally and verbally developed enough to express their emotions and thoughts, it has helped me look at her aggression in a new light. And treat her in a more positive manner even when I don't like her behavior. There are also some very valuable lessons to foster good relations between siblings - that's the best lesson I learned. My children may have personality differences that keep them from being best friends but there are things that I can and MUST to to foster an respectful and caring relationship. EVERYONE with more than one child needs to read this book.

Last Chance to See.... - book cover picture

A race to document a dying species... Adams' wit and humor make an enjoyable read out of what could only otherwise be called a depressing topic. Still, through Adams' intelligent yet non-zoological eyes, we are shown areas of the world we will otherwise never see. The portrayal of the Kimono dragons, early in the book, is a shocking representation of what a a majestic reptile has been reduced to, and at the same time a morbid reminder of how wretched humans can be. Yet, due to Adams' skill we are able to feel his wonder and his fascination. We are able to get past the uncomfortable aspects of animal extinction, so that we can look it square in the eye and learn from it.As much value on a humanitarian, ecological and zoological level as on a literary one. Adams' himself calls it his most prized and significant writing (I'm paraphrasing, read "Salmon of Doubt" to get his words).I'd give it three thumbs up, but I only have two.

Sagan's legacy

The Demon-Haunted World : Science as a Candle in the Dark - book cover picture

Carl Sagan was one of the best popularizers of science in the last 100 years. This book is his legacy. Anyone interested in science should read this book and understand the pitfalls of believing in the absence of evidence. Sagan correctly points out that mysticism is haunting the US and science is being forced into the background. Too often science is viewed as a grand conspiracy and many fail to understand the success of cautious and tentative science. Humans crave the certainty of mysticism and religion. Science is all about making you uncomfortable. Sagan accurately depicts the asymptotic approach to truth rooted in modern science and why this makes humans uncomfortable. This book will make you re-examine what you KNEW was true.

Cracking the SAT II: Math, 1999-2000 Edition (Annual) - book cover picture

This book is very helpful and is easy to follow. They seemed to cover everything given on the test and offered great explanations. I believe I did spot a few typo's though? But nothing major. The tests at the end of the book were helpfull too; they seemed to me to be the same level of difficulty that the actual test was. Also, what's cool is that you can actually find your estimated scaled score... After taking the math 2c (got 790) I feel this book really provided me with a good review of math concepts. Good luck to all...

I found the book to brillant and very exciting.

Indian Killer - book cover picture

The book Indian Killer written by Sherman Alexie was very exciting, I've read the book in college and had thoughts about when he or any Native American would makes a movie. My question was answered I have always liked Sherman Alexie's poems and stories, it's required here on the reservation. The book was very interesting in some what ways, kind of remined me of the book Broken Circle. I also enjoyed the book suspense that was put in the book. Racial feelings and anger that it give you, I like the book alot and I've read many mysteries and action stories, I thought this book was great in any way you can imagine. I just can not explain or tell how Sherman Alexie reading and stories are. Just think it's a great book in exciting, just like his others stories and poems.

The Outsiders - book cover picture

I think this book is one of the few that I will always be able to relate to in my life. The characters are so real to me, and I can see them in so many of the people that are close to me, as well as myself. As a result of this book, I have had a greater understanding of these people, and will always enjoy reading it over and over again. I'd recommend this book to anyone, because it helps you see the other side of things, it really gets you thinking. Most of all, it inspires you to just be who you are and appreciate those who are important to you.
