I enjoyed reading Belgarath the Sorcerer very much. It was fun to discover the background on the mysterious sorcerer. When I finished reading the Mallorean I was sad because there wasn't any more to read about the characters I loved so much, but then I found Belgarath the Sorcerer and was happy to read it. I laughed and cried, which happens when I read my favorite books. Now I'm just waiting for David and Leigh to write another one

All starts to Freedom !


Book title: Development as Freedom
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Development as Freedom - book cover picture

A must read. In this carefully analyzed work, Sen presents the basic essense of development that seems to have been forgotten by many economists focused in creation of wealth and in measurement of GDP and GNP. Amartya Sen presents how essential freedom is as an end to the process of development and indicates the futility of economic development with unfreedoms of people. The fact many major international organizations are revising their development programs on Sen's notion of development indeed presents how vital his notions are for any society. - Mumtaz

Outstanding


Book title: She Walks These Hills
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
She Walks These Hills - book cover picture

All of Sharon McCrumb's stories starring Sheriff Spencer Arrowood, Nora Bonesteel, and the cast in the northeastern Tennessee mountains are outstanding; but "She Walks These Hills" is just exceptional. McCrumb manages to tell more than one fascinating story at a time, weaving them seamlessly. You feel you know characters personally; you root for them, you're sad for them; you almost feel you can phone them. McCrumb's style holds your interest, you don't want to put the book down, and yet they are so comfortable and easy going. I've done a lot of genealogical research in this area and once in awhile an actual name I've worked on pops up in a book - and I usually agree with her assessment. My only complaint is that the books don't come fast enough. I've converted many people to Sharon McCrumb readers - you won't be disappointed either - no matter which one you start with.

When Autism Strikes: Families Cope With Childhood Disintegrative Disorder - book cover picture

As far as I know, this is the only book specifically about the rare and mysterious pervasive developmental disorder known as Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (or Heller's Syndrome), in which children lose previously acquired skills and develop the symptoms of autism after several years of apparently normal development.With an introduction by autism expert Fred Volkmar, the book presents the stories of eight families of children with CDD, including the editor's own son Thomas, and Jordan Schulze (the subject of his father Craig's book "When Snow Turns to Rain"), as they struggle to cope with and find an explanation for their children's devastating regression.Hopefully, this book will increase awareness of the under-diagnosed condition and let other families know that they are not alone.

BCSN: Building Scalable Cisco Networks (Book/CD-ROM package) - book cover picture

This book and the Boson practice tests were all that I used for the BSCN test and I passed with an 850. I did see some things on the test that I don't remember seeing in this book, but for the most part it did the job. If you are searching for a book that gives you a look at the test ahead of time, this is not the book. You actually have to do some reading and comprehend what you are reading - sorry. There are some errors but I have seen errors in every tech book including those published by Cisco. Get this book along with some pratice tests and you will be OK. By the time the so-called better books are published, you will already have your CCNP.

It was like a modern day Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn.


Book title: October Sky: A Memoir

Binding: Mass Market Paperback
October Sky: A Memoir - book cover picture

Rarely has a book so engrossed me to the point that I couldn't wait to get home to read more. This book was like a cold war version of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Having grown up with the space program, although not to the extent the author has, I relived each and every mission from Gemini and Apollo, bought all the models, read every article, and was glued to the television for every adventure. Homer Hickam has captured his youth in words that have played movies in my head.

Vivid Illustrations Enhance a Complex Tale

Peter Pan: The Complete and Unabridged Text - book cover picture

Although this book is certainly delightful, as many others have said, it's a classic that adds layers with each re-reading, and many of those layers are dark. In fact, Barrie does not so much tell us that children are innocent, as that they are "heartless" - we might say amoral, certainly oblivious of the heartache they cause others. As the author continually points out, the good and bad are interwined; Peter's most fascinating quality is his conceit. He is willing to sacrifice his own life for Wendy's (but might equally neglect to save her if his mind is elsewhere). Hook's cruelty combines with an obsession with "good form." Almost every character is richly drawn (in both prose and oils). Of the many editions I've seen of this story, this is far and away the most attractive, providing a rich setting for a tale that deserves to be discovered and enjoyed by a new generation, and an author that should not be forgotten.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

"The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe" , "The Faraway Tree" and books by the amazing Ronald Dalh were the stories that enriched my childhood. But now years on i feel like i'm a child again. I've just read my first Harry Potter book. Comparisons with other classics are reasonable and the media hype is warranted. J.K. Rowling's series is truly wonderfull.The Sorcerer's Stone is perfect for young readers. The language is suitably readable, but more important are the fun cast of characters and exciting plot. This tale is so well crafted and engaging that parents will find themselves sneaking a read after the children have gone to bed. They have even published a special edition featuring an adults cover so adults can read this "kids" book without embaressment .I'm hooked!

Things fall apart; (The New windmill series, 162) - book cover picture

i'm sure everyone has already said everything, so i'll make this short. i read this book maybe three years ago and here's what it's done for me.1) anytime i meet someone from nigeria i have a ready-made conversation. they all know the book, love chinua achebe, and love to talk about it. and since i do too, everyone wins.2) what sticks with me even now, though i haven't looked at the book since, is the deep pain that went on in that village as it transitioned toward christianity. i'll never forget that character of Ikemefuna (sp?), the sacrificed "peace-child." still makes me feel like i could cry when i think of the tragedy. of so many sacrificed, and why?

The Wild Hunt


Book title: The Wild Hunt
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Wild Hunt - book cover picture

The Wild Hunt is a slow-moving, easily comprehendible book. The book has a unique and intriguing set-up that had me hooked by the second chapter. The book has three parts in a chapter, each tells a similar story from a different point of view. The story is full of action and suspence, which kept me hooked. When I started reading I could not put the book down. This book cannot be made better. If you love adventure this book is for you. I give it a great rating.
