Art and Life in Bangladesh - book cover picture

Henry Glassie has written one of the great books of the 21st Century. His descriptions of the history of Bangladesh provide exactly the context needed to understand the folklife and art that he chooses to present from this nation. Glassie balances his own thought-provoking and insightful interpretations with articulate and intriguing texts, edited together from hundreds of hours of interview material. In this manner, Glassie guides the reader to a great understanding of the incredible artistry of the people of Bangladesh. Reading this book forces one to reflect on a range of important issues -- the central one being a compassionate concern with what it means to be wealthy or poor in Bangladesh, and in America.

Book title: Easy Prey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Easy Prey - book cover picture

Okay, I admit: I like John Sandford's "Prey" novels. This guy has developed a character, Lucas Davenport, that I think is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. A Minnesota cop, Davenport is intelligent, resourceful,street tough and takes pleasure in his work. He isn't superman: he's just a persistent cop who encounters good and bad luck.

In "Easy Prey," a drug-addled super model is murdered at a party - along with another woman. As Davenport gets into the case, things get complex fast. Drugs are involved. Drug dealing and some very clever people doing the dealing.

Sandford does a remarkable job of never getting stuck in the ruts of his own plots. Sure, they're similar in a small way from one novel to another, but always sufficiently different to draw the reader in. And Davenport keeps growing as a person in different ways.

"Easy Prey" is another great novel from Sandford.

Your Pregnancy Month by Month - book cover picture

With so many books regarding childbirth overflowing with extremely liberal ideas and information, I found Dr. Gillespie's conservative approach a nice balance to many other popular childbirth books.I did not find his discussion of the many ailments possible during pregnancy frightening. Instead, I was happy to find medical issues discussed in his book that I had not found in any other!I especially enjoyed the journal sections of the book, and I recommend this book to anyone seeking information from an informed doctor with many years of expereince.

Last Call (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

A departure from the highly enjoyable, but small town, old-fashioned BEGINNER'S LUCK, Pedersen's last novel. However LAST CALL is every bit as funny and significantly more philosophical and heart-wrenching. I laughed out loud every few pages and I had two big cries. It's a highly original story and absolutely perfect for a movie. Pedersen creates the best characters to come along since Rick in Casablanca and Auntie Mame. They dance right off the page and into your heart, parts of everyone you know and sometimes a bit of yourself, and they live in your mind long after the story ends. A great book for book clubs (there's even one in the story!). Do NOT read the end first or skip ahead to peek at anytime, no matter how tempting!

Getting the Love You Want - book cover picture

I'm reading this and find it the best book I've read so far on relationships and how to make them work better. The author discusses the unconscious and the conscious and concludes that it's necessary to understand and work on both to develop and improve a relationship. He talks about why we unconsciously pick the partners we do, about unfulfilled childhood needs that we may be unconsciously (and unrealistically?) expecting our partner to meet. He then offers some very practical and doable exercises for consciously changing the partnership or marriage. This book gives me a lot of reality based optimism for improving a relationship and making things work.

Memoirs of a Geisha - book cover picture

Would you like to just go away for awhile? Slip into another's world so far from your life that you can completely disappear? This is the gift I was given while I read Memoirs... I visited a world so foreign and exotic that I was tasting the bitter green tea, smelling the misty sea air, feeling the loss and sorrow, hearing the whispers of silk against skin and seeing the brilliant Kimonos light by dancing lanterns.For the hours spent inside this novel, I was given not just given a glimpse of another world, I was taken there. This is not a book you should skim through, or read while being distracted. This is a book you take to your best reading spot, curl up and let yourself breath the pages.If you have the time and space I urge you to give yourself to this book, otherwise save it for that rainy day when you just want to disappear. Either way it will not disappoint.

amazing first novel

Book title: Hostile Witness
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Hostile Witness - book cover picture

This should be considered a new classic among legal thrillers. Incredibly witty, insightful, and entertaining--extremely well-written. For once, a hero who is not Superman. Not that Supermans are unexciting when drawn well, but there are a lot more mere survivors out there, heels even, and Lashner gives us one even more interesting than Sammy Glick. Victor wasn't born with the world's greatest advantages, hasn't gotten what he wants yet, and has experienced a lot of losing--so now what? Life goes on. That's the point here, or at least one of them.

Michael Moore has done it again! Moore delivers hillarious commentary and poignant insights in his latest book. The sheer accessiblity of his writing, as well as the incontrivertible evidence he provides, makes this book both entertaining and informative. You'll come away smarter and understanding his analysis. Helpful tips on how to take action leave you feeling you have some power to have an impact on the system Moore critiques. Regardless of what the reactionaries say ... this is a great book--and a real threat to the status quo.
