Beautiful prose tells heart-wrenching story of hope.

Cry, the Beloved Country - book cover picture

The opening chapter of this book is the most beautiful
English-language prose I have ever read. It begins a sad
tale which is full of the hard truth but full of hope and
forgiveness as well. The dialogues among people who
are in different worlds in South Africa are simple and moving.
You will not only not permit yourself to put it down before
you finish; you will feel the same way again when you pick
it up a second, third, and fourth time. It is a book to
own, to put on your coffee table, talk about, cry over, and
rejoice at.

Much more enjoyable than the movie

The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - book cover picture

Now, don't get me wrong, I love the movie version of this novel, but there is so much humor an wit in the novel that can't be translated in the movie! The way Goldman treats his story as an update of a forgotten classic is so clever, and I loved the way he kept "interrupting" the text to chip in his opinion. I especially like the way the characters are developed more deeply in the novel, and how there are aspects of Buttercup and Westley's relationship that aren't presented in the movie. I think that any age could enjoy this story, although some younger readers might have problems discerning the story from the "editor's comments". This is a great book to read out loud, since it is so enjoyable for all involved.

Thanks to an incredible author,Sue Harrison,I found myself thinking about this book's characters and adventures even after I'd read into the next book. Her books are masterfully researched and the life of Chagak has the reader enduring her pain, her happiness and love, and her ability to never give up. Sue allows you walk in the characters shoes and you can believe you're right there with them.Two Thumbs Up to a fantastic author!

The true Boundary Waters

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Singing Wilderness - book cover picture

This book is my favorite! It describes all the feelings common to those who have visited canoe country and will never forget it. Sigurd Olson's writing is so clear and descriptive, you'll feel like you're in the Boundary Waters every time you pick it up. Everyone who has visited the Boundary Waters or ever plans on doing so, not to mention all the other nature lovers out there, should read this book. I don't know how many times I've read it and it seems to get better every time.

Tres bien!

Blackberry Wine : A Novel - book cover picture

This is a novel to sip and savor. Like in Chocolat and Coastliners, Joanne Harris transports us to the intimate world of a small French village where an English writer flees to reconnect with his muse. It's imaginative and filled with lush imagery. The only small annoyance for me is that the two key characters have such similar names (Jay and Joe). Otherwise, I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Merci beaucoup!

Her Best Yet

Shadow Heart - book cover picture

A Great Book! Laura Kinsale never fails to please, and Elena di Monteverdi is a wonderful heroine, while Allegretto should be handled with a fireproof glove, he's so hot. Nicely done, captures the intrigues and politics of Renaissance Italy's city states while developing two great characters. The personalities are believable and the intimate scenes beautifully drawn. You genuinely like and are curious about these people. Buy this book!!!

Number the Stars - book cover picture

Number the Stars You haven't read a really good book till you read this one. One day these girls named Kristin, Annemarie, and Ellen was in a school race and they bumped into a solider. The soldier started asking them a lot of questions. Soon, the Nazi's began going to the people's house's that was Jews and a lot of people died because the Nazi's killing the Jewish people. Ellen had to live with the Johansen's and act like Lise because she was Jewish and her parents didn't want her to be killed. I liked the book because it talked about the Holocaust and racism. It deals with a lot of religious issues. It does not matter you should love them for who they are and don't hate them because of the color of their skin or different religion.

Franny and Zooey - book cover picture

This was the first book in a long, long time to blow my hair back. Maybe it got to me personally because of the metaphysical "fringe," but I love Salinger's writing in general, and the Glass family he introduces here includes a great set of characters just as piquant as Holden Caulfield, if not more so. I probably would've given four stars if it weren't for the ending and the Fat Lady; the philosophy she expresses is old, but I've never seen it communicated anywhere near the way Salinger does.

Saving Dinner the Low-Carb Way : Healthy Menus, Recipes, and the Shopping Lists That Will Keep the Whole Family at the Dinner Table - book cover picture

I loved the 1st book Saving Dinner, so I bought the Low Carb version! Love it, too! Menu planning couldn't be easier, because Leanne does it all for you including the grocery lists! For someone who is clueless in the kitchen, recipes were to easy to follow. With my 3 little picky eaters and my carb-watching hubby, all were happy with the dishes I prepared. I have recommended this book to all of my working-mom pals!

We are recommending this book for UVM

Book title: Optics
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Optics - book cover picture

I am recommending that the University of Vermont library purchase copies of this text in the 3rd edition. I am also recommending that it be used as the optics text for our undergraduate curriculum. In grad school,I used the 2nd edition and found it to be perfect in its mixture of theory, historical background and cool experiments to try -- like the Poisson dot. Although I am in astrophysics research now, I occasionally go back to the section on Fresnel diffraction and the Cornu spiral to dig out insight for use in quantum field theory and path integrals!
