Simply Java Programming: An Application-Driven Tutorial Approach - book cover picture

I'm an experienced C++ programmer with access to JBuilder version 5. I did most of the examples and learned Java along the way. I was able to contruct simple GUI tools for my job as a software engineer based on the examples from the book.The inside is beautifully layed out in color. It's one of the reasons the book is expensive.I am having trouble getting the database examples(ATM&Bookstore) to work. So close to perfection as a learning tool. I imagine there would be more frustration if I did not know how to debug from an IDE. Subtract one star if you are not an experienced programmer with a proper IDE.

It's FICTION, folks!


Book title: With No One As Witness (Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers Novels)

With No One As Witness (Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers Novels) - book cover picture

Her best in years (let's just forget those last two, shall we?)

I got such a laugh reading the comments from readers who are INCENSED at the "alteration" of one of the core characters. It's FICTION, folks, and Ms George gets to write her plots and characters any way she sees fit! I just hope she is taking all of this "huff" as a compliment. It's her skill in writing evocative and interesting characters that is causing all the ado.

I hope this isn't the last Lynley novel. But I'll read WHATEVER Elizabeth George writes next.

a very good introduction to the history of philosophy!

Sophie's World : A Novel About the History of Philosophy - book cover picture

I enjoyed this book very much! The book in itself is very well written,very wisely written. It tells the story of a girl that gets letters from a stranger,and this stranger starts giving her a course in philosophy.This course starts from the very beginning of philosophical thought up to our times.The book is also a mystery since Sophie doesn't know who sends her the letters.The whole concept of the book is very original and has a philosophical idea at it's core on which the whole book is based (you'll never guess it!).The book is written very clearly to anyone that doesn't have a clue about philosophy and one gets a very good opportunity to get to know verious philosophers and read about those that interest you most ,after reading this book.Very highly recommended!

It Feels Like Home


Book title: The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter - book cover picture

For someone with a Scots-Irish, Appalachian, East TN. heritage who is at the moment, displaced in FL., this book is like coming home. McCrumb knows what it feels like to be a part of those mountain communities, the spirit and prejudices, the superstitions and the faith. This book is more than a murder mystery, it is an insiders look at what makes these regional communities function and what makes them unforgettable. This has all the warmth and authenticity that Fraiser's *Cold Mountain* lacked. McCrumb and fellow writer, Lee Smith, truly understand and recapture the Appalachian spirit.

A Gem!

The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel - book cover picture

This was definitely a story loaded with character to the hilt. It was not a typical Stephen King book in the horror sense; although it was loaded with suspense and horror. The book had a wonderful flow to it. I just couldn't get bored or easily put this book down. Something dramatic and suspenseful was always happening around each and every corner. Sometimes I laughed and sometimes I actually cried. It was a story of friendship, love, hatred, morality and life. The story carries a load of portraying a huge political statement, disguised through the innocence of love, miracles and wonderfully colorful characters. I haven't read many King books in years. Not that I don't like him, I just think I finally got bored with horror books. This story follows in the path of "The Shawshank Redemption" in which King strays from his usual horror stream. I am a renewed King faithful through this book. It is an absolute Gem of a story. I loved it.

The Egypt Game is lots of fun!!!


Book title: The Egypt Game (Yearling Newbery)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Egypt Game (Yearling Newbery) - book cover picture

I liked The Egypt Game because it has a good plot and good characters. It would be for a 4th through 8th grader because the plot is easy to understand and it has a hard mystery to solve. Because the mystery is hard to solve, you have to wait till the end to find out who, what, where and why. That makes you want to read it more. For moms it is like sneaking vegetables into soup - your kids will read about Egyptian facts and will be learning while having fun. This book is for either boys or girls because their are several of each in the book. We liked this book so much we can't wait to get the sequel, The Gypsy Game!

Fantastic Book!

Rating: 5/5
Binding: School & Library Binding
Emperor Mage: The Immortals (Immortals (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Daine is off to Carthak on a mission to save the King Mage's precious birds, and to try to mend relations between Carthak and Tortall too! Along with Daine is the ever-present Numair her teacher and friend, and a mess of other wise and often humorous Tortallan characters.
In Carthak, Daine meets the citizens of Carthak and realizes how the Carthakian economy is worsening because of the King Mage's lack of respect to the great gods. How Daine solves this Carthak problem is certainly worth the read of "Emperor Mage"!
Tamora Pierce's insightful and engaging writing is also encouraing and spurs this third installment of "The Immortals" series to greater heights. The little pecks that Numair may have feelings for Daine that are more than "just friends" also keeps the reader rifling through the pages devouring this fantastic book. I strongly urge you buy "The Immortals" series today!

MRS. EAGLE AT HER FINEST!

What the Heart Knows - book cover picture

Mrs. Eagle: I just read What the Heart Knows again and am reminded why I became so addicted to your books! This book was the reason. The first I read of yours - and the reason I went backwards looking for them ALL! I know you know, but NO ONE builds the characters like you do... so close you feel you know them as your personal friends. This book is the reason I have 31 of yours. You have an amazing talent! The way you characterized Reese is what fed the addiction. I wanted to hate Helen, but, as in real life, without the struggles, the love would be taken for granted. I have loved all your books, but this one is #1 - tied with The Night Remembers! Aren't you writing a sequel to The Night Remembers!?? I want to make sure I've got it on pre-order! Write faster!

Point of Origin - book cover picture

One of the best Scarpetta books so far. I have to tell you I have been waiting for her next scarpetta book to come out. I really didn't think she could write another Scarpetta book as well as she did the others. I stand corrected, by far this is one of her best. If you haven't read it you should. If you have read it read it again. Cornwell is my favorite author because of books like this. Go out and get a copy today.

Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United States - book cover picture

As an English teacher I have had to deal with American History and classes were sometimes difficult to make amusing. after reading Bary`s book, and almost laugh-die, I find it easier to read, focus and teach history.Barry is what we might call a serious joker both on colonial and contemporary Amerian History. the very explanation of the location of Hawaii gives you an idea of the kind of book you`ll read. As Barry so hilariously states it dates are not the big deal, there are more important things to remember, dates will come sort of automatically
