Beach Music - book cover picture

I listened to this book when it was released in 1995 on audiotape. I found myself not getting out of the car when I arrived home from working all day because of the spell that I was in. This is probably one of the best books that I have ever encountered. Pat Conroy has such a way to make you feel that you are there taking part of the characters world. We loved one of the characters so much that we chose the name if we had had a daughter, instead we had a son. This is a book that my husband and I will still make comments about during different times in our life. It does not happen very often that a book can last in your mind for so many years. I would and have to everyone that I know.

Oracle8i for Linux Starter Kit (Book/CD-ROM Package) - book cover picture

You can tell that this book was written by not just an oracle savvy individual, but by a great teacher as well. The book gets five stars for its coverage of oracle on linux, five stars for its oracle coverage alone, and another five stars for being a great database learning tool. The exercises are great, the illustrations are great. The code is already online. Great book... great book... great book.

Snake - book cover picture

The hand of the poet is evident in the elegant use of language to create tension and waste not a breath that would interfere with the stealthy creep of these characters' fate, until it breathes down their necks, and the moment of denouement is... that their lives are trivial, as are all of ours. The haunting loneliness of rural countryside, or loveless marriage, or friendless life, is evoked cumulatively in vignettes whose collage effect remains with the reader long after this slim and beautiful book is done.

Fans of magic will love "In the Lake ..."

In the Lake of the Woods - book cover picture

Tim O'Brien took a grave risk writing "In the Lake of the Woods." He chose to fictionalize an historical event. Such an effort may not seem at all unique; however, the historical event he fictionalizes had so great an effect on the Vietnam War and on perceptions of it, that dealing with the subject matter alone had the potential to disturb, to frighten, even to enrage. Despite possible pitfalls, O'Brien masterfully transforms "In the Lake of the Woods" into a solid and fluid work.Playing heavily on magic and proffering ideas about people's fascination with it, O'Brien toys with readers, leading them on with his "Hypothesis" chapters. Readers are suspended in a continual tug-of-war until the end of the novel. At the end, readers are finally realize why magic is loved and hated, but so often enjoyed.

Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation! - book cover picture

So far I've given away five copies [1 in German] and no doubt I'll be giving away more. It's the first book I've seen my husband read cover to cover since I met him 30 years ago!
We are so lucky that just one single person, a librarian got on the internet and made this book happen.
Michael Moore writes with simplicity and humour and in so doing is able to reach and inform a huge audience, not only the English speakers but other nationalities as well. My Chinese doctor and her 17 year old son loved it and he took it to school and discussed it with his friends.
This book is right there and will remain as one of my all time favourites and I'm looking forward to obtainung his latest book,

Classic Krentz

Crystal Flame - book cover picture

I recently re-discovered an older copy (1986) of this book (has an awful romance cover completely unrelated to the book) and read it again. I think this is one of her better ones. THe characters are stong but not so stubborn they can't learn from their mistakes. Readers should note, though, that this is more like a Jayne Castle book than a Krentz one. Her SF-fantasy is a nice change from other books in the genre because she tends to focus more on the social structures of the alternate world than the technological differences. They're also (mostly) believable - except you'd never catch me getting up at dawn (every day!) to serve my husband tea.

Regarding the recipes, this is the one cookbook that contains recipes that many people ask me for. They are that good! The Chicken Marsala, Roasted Corn and Crab Soup and Coq au vin are restaurant quality and easy to make. Unlike other cookbooks where you hope to find a few dishes the family will like, *every* dish in BH&G is a hit. I have no hesitation trying new recipes now ~ I just jump right in! :o)

The Jackal of Nar, Book One of Tyrants and Kings - book cover picture

I was in awe of the story-telling abilities of John Marco.Jackal of Nar is sweeping military fantasy epic with three-dimensional characters, and a powerful statement of the horrors of war.Unlike tolkeinish fantasies where heroes battle the forces of evil and war is like a grand adventure this novel shows no such illusions in it's depictions of war and the politics around it.This novel sweeps you away to war-torn world of a reluctant hero,Richius Vantran called the jackal by his enemies.A young man who must choose to serve the ancient ruler of an empire that conquers his country and following his heart which is a young woman of the country he is battling.This novel has scenes of trench warfare where poison gas is used, dark magic and sinister intrigue.When you enter Vantran's world of dark magic and war you will never forget it's images. Terry Goodkind and Jordan should watch their backs with the new author!
