The Giver (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

I had some misgivings about reading this book at first, for I was absolutely sure it would be really wierd. But my friends insisted that it was great so I gave The Giver a try. I was completely flabbergasted when I finished. The Giver was actually one of the best books I have ever read, and I've read millions! Sure, it's a bit unusual, but are there any great books that aren't? Sooo, if you're uncertain, looking for a book to read, or need a book for a friend or a child of around ten, get this book! The Giver is SUPERB!

Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born - book cover picture

After having our first three children "biologically," my wife and I adopted our now four year old daughter at birth. This book is a terrific mix of story and entertaining graphics that encapsulates the first few days of her life. It has given our daughter a book of her own that has the words "adopt" and "birth mother" in a context that is warm and entertaining. She loves the book and at least once every week she picks it out for story time. What is most telling is that when my wife and I are sitting together in the evening, our daughter will find this book and bring it to us. So she has given it a five star rating of her own!

Serious and Amusing

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37) - book cover picture

Of course, it is always possible to disagree with the ranking of Striesand so far back in the pack and Jimmy (Dumb as ditchwater) Carter at number 6.

That said, the writing is enormously entertaining and amusing while conveying a serious message: the vast majority of the people in the book are either misguided, evil (a very non-au courant but sadly under appreciated word, applicable to e.g., Paul Krugman), uninformed or blinded by their prejudices (Noam Chomsky).

Not a few are hypocritical in the extreme (Streisand qualifies as misguided, misinformed, prejudiced and hypocritical; Carter and many others in the book (Harry Belafonte is a good example) simply are fools.)

It is great fun to skewer these fools.

Great Job!

Wow... funny can be taught

Book title: Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy - book cover picture

I have read all of titles devoted to Stand Up Comedy technique and performance and found them to be nothing more than an ex comedian or comedy bookers idea of what they think is/was funny. They all seem to say, "Write some material by making associations, try it in clubs, re write, try it again and take my class." Not very insightful!!!This is the only comedy book devoted to the internal development of what it takes to go from not funny to funny. It should be considered the first major work to answer the myth that 'funny' can not be taught.

I loved this book. I am waiting for the 2 new books to both of her other series so I found this one and picked it up. at first i was unsure of whether or not i would like it...ended up loving and if she ever decides to start another series she should continue where this one left off. was disappointed it wasn't longer and felt that the quest had just begun. Would love for a continuation of this book.

She is the Roald Dahl for the new millenium, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will be better I hope. I can't wait for that to come out.

Simply Beautiful...

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Lightposts for Living : The Art of Choosing a Joyful Life - book cover picture

When something is beautiful and lovely and full of Americana at its best, there are bound to be detractors. They scoff at this work, call it names, and talk in intellectually superior tones about the qualities this type of art supposedly lacks. But there is something in the sensitive soul that resonates to the words and pictures of this wonderful artist. Whether it is the beautiful simplicity of his paintings or his suggestions for a more beautiful and meaningful life, this book will touch a place inside of you that always knows that our true nature longs for the type of life that this book encourages. Sure, some folks will dismiss the sentiments and ideals in this book because they have allowed jaded and negative views to dominate their minds and finally their souls and then called it "intellectualism." If your mind is open; better yet your heart, you will find in this book nourishment for your soul. Very highly reccomended!

Sad and Beautiful

Annie's Baby: The Diary of Anonymous, a Pregnant Teenager (Book Three of the Dominions of Irth) - book cover picture

Annie's Baby is a very good book and I highly recommend it. This book surprised me because of the shocking abuse and her confusion. Annie was so innocent and naive (not stupid!). The fact that she was so innocent and sweet and had so many troubles made the book so sad. The fact that she was pregnant was not the sad part, I do not think it is really "wrong" to get pregnant at a young age, but she had never experienced anything very harsh until she met Danny. She was so inexperienced that she believed him and trusted him. I wanted to protect Annie and warn her. This book is not unrealistic. Annie's Baby is so incredibly real that I felt tears in my eyes. Annie and her baby were real people. Annie's story could hep many teens avoid unhealthy relationships and possibly unwanted pregnancy. Annie is really a very brave girl and she deserves respect.

Excellent intro to microeconomics

Binding: Paperback
Student Workbook to accompany Microeconomics - book cover picture

This is a great text for an intro to Microeconomics (I used this book when I was student). It was written clearly by stating the points that the author hopes you learn, followed by the reading and then exercises and problems to make sure the student understood the concepts from the chapter. The many graphs in this book make the concepts easy to understand and the fact that most of the graphs are in color helps out alot.

Silent Cry (William Monk Novels (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Once I picked up The Silent Cry, there was no putting it down. This is the very first Anne Perry book I've ever read. Upon finishing it, I went to the book store to purchase all the previously published books in the Monk series. Last year, I read all the Elizabeth George books during the first month of a snowy Minnesota winter. I can't wait to get started reading Anne Perry's books during my first "Maine" winter. Nothing like a good mystery when the snow is falling outside.
