White Oleander : A Novel (Oprah's Book Club) - book cover picture

Why this book has only averaged 4 stars on the review board here, I can not even begin to imagine. It is truly a 5 star work of art. For those of you R&B fans out there, if you had to pick a song to accompany this novel, it would be "Emotional Rollercoaster" by Vivian Greene. Why...because that is exactly what Astrid's life was. I wanted so much for Astrid, and just when I thought she'd finally get comes another blow. How does Astrid endure all that she must live through? Well, I think that question is answered best by Astrid herself, who recognizes and CHOOSES not to allow herself to be a victim, but to learn from every situation and come out a Survivor. Pick this one up and you won't want to put it down.

Rebel Angels - book cover picture

This was a highly enjoyable and gripping read. I enjoyed it and it's prequel immensely. I wish I could read the next book in the series right now. That is my main problem with this series. If it takes 2 years for the next book to come out, by then I'll be nearly 17. I'm worried that I'll forget about these books or feel too old to read them then.

Ah well, focusing on the present I loved this book. I rarely buy books unless I really want them, and I couldn't wait 2 months for the library to get this book. I bought it and read it in about 5 hours. So, if you enjoy books with magic, romance, horror and mystery, this is a perfect blend of those elements. What makes it even more interesting and appealing is that it is set in the Victorian era.

I'm sick of singing it's praises.I enjoyed the book. I recommend it. You should read it.

A story truly deserving of the term "epic"

Book title: The Seventh Scroll
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Seventh Scroll - book cover picture

The characters are strong, the locations are exquisite, and the plot is thoroughly entertaining. Wilbur Smith knows exactly when to speed it up to enthrall the reader and slow it down to allow the reader to catch their breath and appreciate the power of the story.What puts this book over the top is that it makes the reader feel as though they are right there in the middle of the story as it is unfolding.It's got a little bit of everything which satiates a wide variety of readers.The relationship between Royan and Nicholas is a realistic budding of love.It is an epic adventure filled with danger,suspense,and powerful drama as Nicholas and Royan find an enemy at every turn.The description of the settings by Smith is terrific.This book is an excellent read for anyone. Easily the best book I've ever read.

Fahrenheit 451 - book cover picture

I originally picked up Farenheit 451 for a summer reading book but in being touched deeply by this book and the realization that the book wasn't on my summer reading list I realized it was much more than just a quick read. I love reading but this book really made me think about how some of my friends despise reading. Now, it doesn't seem like much, but in Guy Montag's society, the main character, reading and just owning books was a crime. I started thinking about how much knowledge can be attained through books, and this book made me think about what books offer. That is because this book offers so much to the reader. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it had no closing to the story. I personally like closings but some people like to imagine the end and it always works for teachers to have a finish the book kind of project. But anyway, this is a truly great book.

A Surprising and Beautiful Read

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) - book cover picture

When I bought this book, I wasn't looking for great literature. As a sixteen-year-old bookaholic, this looked like just the thing to brighten up a dismal school week: fun and fluffy. Well, fun it was, but this was anything but fluff. The stories of each of the girls are moving and well-written. I found myself engrossed in Brashare's simple prose and really caring what happened to each of the characters. The first couple of chapters didn't really reflect the whole book, so if you start it and dont' like it, don't give up. This book moved me profoundly and brought tears to my eyes at several points. All of the emotions before me on the page were ones that I could relate to. If you're a teenage to HAVE to read this. If you're not, I would still recommend because it is an amazing novel that rivals the best of literary fiction.

Jambalaya: The Natural Woman's Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals - book cover picture

Teish's book "Jambalaya" is truly magnificent. I am very happy to report that as a man, I had absolutely no trouble embracing the concepts that Teish writes about. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who feels that they are not connected to the forces that bring all people together. This book, undoubtedly, will give one the sense that we are all here for a purpose -- to give back to She who gives to us.

Book title: Environmental Archaeology : Principles and Practice

Environmental Archaeology : Principles and Practice - book cover picture

Dincauze's magnum opus (so far) is an outstanding overview and in-depth analysis of its topic. She sets the standard for the application of archaeological theory to practical archaeology and prehistory in a book which will be a benchmark for the forseeable future. Grounded in both dirt archaeology and theory, the book integrates for a new generation the best of past, current and I think future approaches to archaeology. The publisher is to be commended for good taste in books but poor taste in pricing--the hardcover edition at over $100 is simply out of the range of most people who need to read the book; the paperback price of $39 is also prohibitive but less so. Every pro and most serious amateurs should READ the book, even if they can't afford to buy it.

No more rejection letters? Maybe not, if you follow the sensible advice in Appelbaum's masterful bestseller. She explains that publishing must be treated as a "rational, manageable activity ... in which knowledge coupled with skill and application can ensure success." Also shows how to get the best deal from the publisher, legally retaining as many rights as possible and how to promote the book once it's published. If you are a beginning author, my advice is to simply write one page per day, but first read How to Get Happily Published. It's also a great resource for experienced, published writers and publishing firms.

I Am Legend - book cover picture

My first introduction to I am Legend was as a child in the 70's via the old Black and White Vincent Price movie based on the novel. If you're a fan of the apocalypse, vampires, plague or survival tales then this is a must have!! Imagine a world destroyed by plague and you seem to be the only survivor least the only survivor with half a mind left. friend...gone(almost)....just you and your canned food ...oh and of course the angry horde of seeming zombies who just want to kill you because you are alive. Rumors have been flying rampant and there is a script out there for a movie already that was originally going to star the "Govenator".
