Flashman and the Angel of the Lord - book cover picture

This is the third Flashman book I've read, Flashman and Royal Flash being the other two. After being disappointed with Royal Flash, I was overjoyed with this book, in which Mr. Fraser has reproduced the brilliance he showed in Flashman. The dialogue is wonderful, the plot tight and unpredictable, and the action breathtaking. The only blemish was the sloppy last few pages, which seems to have been slapped on with a deadline fast approaching. That's a small flaw in this gem though. Read it!

Burnham's Celestial Handbook: An Observer's Guide to the Universe Beyond the Solar System (Volume 1) - book cover picture

For the first few months that I owned these books, I went to bed each night reading them. The quantity of information makes these books the most useful astronomy guides (short of a good atlas) I have ever seen, but it is the extra comments (from theological to philosophical to historical) that make them truly wonderful. Much of the information is badly dated, but if I had to recommend one book to someone who loves to look through telescopes, this would be it, hands down.

Bridget Jones's Diary - book cover picture

I loved this book! This is one of those, I just got dumped and all boys suck, kind of reads. You need a glass of wine, chocolate, and your favorite blanket to read this one. Made me proud to be a strong, independent, beautiful woman. Bridget goes through so many life altering experiences, all the while making sure she counts her calories. Hilarious! I highly recommend every woman between 18 and 35 read this immediately!

Their Eyes Were Watching God - book cover picture

Notwithstanding the Modern Readers Library List, this is one of the best books of the century and it is NOT just for women. This book is written by a women and thus, is perfect for a man who wants to know how to love a woman. Besides any practical reward, it is a wonderful piece of literature. Anyone who appreciates good literature and good writing will immensely enjoy Hurston's wit and story-telling.

The Sot-Weed Factor (The Anchor Literary Library) - book cover picture

This is the funniest book I have ever read by far. Many times I had to stop reading because I was doubled over with laughter. Eben Cooke, the protagonist, goes through an astonishing series of travails as he loses his innocence. The wordplay alone is delightful-people are 'swived' and 'bastinadoed' throughout, and the 'Privie Journall' contains hilarious archaic spellings ('fry'dd',etc.). Sadly, Barth's later work is more interesting than entertaining as story. But this is a masterpiece.

Amusing and philisophical; it clarifies middle age

Manopause: Boomer Hits the Big 50 - book cover picture

Fascinating reading, an accurate description of male 'mid age crisis' in an amusing setting. Yet, a great deal of philosophical depth. Each time you read the book, you get new ideas and insights. Written in a style that makes it a pleasure to read, with many nuances that are derived with each reading. A must for all men 45-60. Their wives would do well to read it as well, to better understand the changes in their husbands.

Worth it just for Hour of the Dragon

The Bloody Crown of Conan (Conan of Cimmeria, Book 2) - book cover picture

Most people think that People of the Black Circle is one of the best sword and sandals fantasy stories out there. I agree, but Hour of the Dragon is,IMO, OVER THE TOP! The plot fairly smacks of something by Tolkien, but really it is a revisiting of Conan in all his various incarnations. We see him as monarch, then as vagabond/rogue/thief, then buccaneer, then general-crushing his enemies, seeing them driven before him and hearing the lamentation of their women. Howard depicts Conan as this implacable force of nature and that is precisely what he is in this story. I so hope the writers rumored to be writing a screenplay for another movie read this story. Absolutely AWESOME!

My Review

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Poisonwood Bible - book cover picture

The Poisonwood Bible was a fantastic book and I would reccomend it to everyone. The book starts out with a family who don't really know themseleves and don't know what they are capable of until almost the end. The women in this book have a lot of courage throughout the book although if you read it you may find as I did that I didn't like some of the characters. But in the end they all grew up and changed for the better and for the worse. But you don't have to take my word for it.

A People's History of the United States: 1492 to the Present - book cover picture

The people who rate the book with 1 star are just angry conservatives who havent even read the book. The book is purposely meant to be biased. It tells the story of American history from the point of view of "the losers" because we all know that the winners write history. If you want something written from George Washington's point of view, go buy a textbook... those are as biased as possible. This book is fact after fact. Yes, there are some things that could have been added, but nothing is perfect (but this comes pretty close). VERY readable. Flows great. Hundreds of quotes. Everyone should read it.

Kushell's insight and charisma make this must read a delight

The Young Entrepreneur's Edge : Using Your Ambition,  Independence, and Youth to Launch a Succesful Business (Princeton Review Series) - book cover picture

The combination of pure insight and Ms. Kushell's obvious charisma make this book not only a must for any entrepreneur (young or old), it is truly a delight to read. I have found as a 28 year old single mother, juggling my young son and my globally expanding business, carefully directed strategy is essential. I certainly don't have time to do anything twice (well...except for reading her book which should be done at least twice). Ms. Kushell's approach to business is innovative, wise and appropriately challenging. Unfortunately, we cannot all personally have Ms. Kushell as part of our team; however, this book will make you feel like you do...
