I am a proud owner of this beautifully bound edition which is printed on paper worthy of, I'm sure, it's destined place amongst children's classics. It is rare indeed, in these cynical times, that an author comes along with the vision and imagination, not to mention the skills of communcation displayed by JK Rowling.It is a joy to read, it is an escape to read; what a marvellous gift... There is never any doubt who's side Harry is on and I salute his unfailing preparedness to 'ask questions'. That's a good start for children everywhere - not to mention some adults!

A Short Guide to a Happy Life - book cover picture

A beautifully simple book; the photos and the text combine in a statement of faith and spiritual strength which readers will find very heartening. Quindlen's resume (p.15) is written in such a way as to invite readers to pen their own in like manner. If this one simple act is what you take away from reading this book, you'll be off to a good start in the profound work of "crafting a spirit" Quindlen so deftly describes.

Excellent Introduction to Orthodox Spirituality

The Mountain of Silence : A Search for Orthodox Spirituality - book cover picture

This book effectively covers Orthodox Spirituality and is truly inspirational in the spirit of "The Way of a Pilgrim & The Pilgrim Continues His Way." One reviewer commented that the book was biased against RCC/Protestant(s) and cited Padre Pio and Francis of Assisi. However, simply because these people had "A" relationship with a God doesn't mean they had "THE" relationship with the God. see "The Non-Orthodox: The Orthodox Teaching on Christians Outside of the Church by Patrick Barnes" and "The Truth: What Every Roman Catholic Should Know About the Orthodox Church by Clark Carlton".

Great novel, great translation

The Master and Margarita (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

I read The Master and Margarita as a teenager (the Michael Glenny translation), and was stunned. I thought it was the best novel I had ever read, combining spirituality and acerbic humor. The new translation is, if possible, even better. Bulgakov's other works, (Heart of a Dog, Days of the Turbins, etc.) are all worth reading, but this is his masterpiece. The comments in some reviews about this novel being inaccessible to Americans are incorrect; I do not understand any Russian, but was still deeply moved.The Ginsburg translation utterly fails to capture Bulgakov's wit. While that is only part of the value of the book, I recommend you stay away from that translation.

Confederates in the Attic - book cover picture

CONFEDERATES IN THE ATTIC is a well-balanced narrative that demonstrates, through a collection of viewpoints and personal histories, that the effects of the Civil War ...the War Between the States... continue to permeate our lives, esp those of us descended from Confederate soldiers. Horwitz has no axe to grind: he collects extreme views as well as those that fall between. I thought he was losing his objectivity in his chapter on Andersonville when he describes its national park exhibits, but it proves to be more neurtal reporting; he brings the level back to the middle when he suggests we consider the prisons -both North and South- as dark shadows with which each side must come to terms. It's an excellent book for the thoughtful person wanting to understand how -and why- the war still simmers and even rages 134 years later.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) - book cover picture

What a great story, for adults too. The great mix of mystery and wizardry made this book a page turner for me. I kept reading because I wanted to know what the Chamber of Secrets was all about. All the adventures Harry, Ron and Hermione were amusing as well. Since the book was written for pre-teens, most of the themes, such as belong to a group and having a school bully, are easily relatable to that age group. However, as an adult, I found the book to be a wonderful light hearted story with a feel-good ending. Besides, all of us (even adults) can relate to belonging to a group and being around a bully. I'll just to have to keep reading to see what Harry does next!

The Best Sandford Novel Ever

Book title: Winter Prey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Winter Prey - book cover picture

This was the greatest effort, in my opinion, offered by Sandford's portrayal of tough cop, Lucas Davenport. The setting is in Wisconsin during the winter with temperatures at sub-zero levels. He, along with the Sherrif's department in the county, are on the prowl for a cold-blooded killer nicknamed, "The Iceman." What separated this book from the others was that the ending was very much a surprise. Unlike other Davenport novels, we usually know the killer in the beginning but in this one, we can only guess until he is revealed at the very end. A great nail-biting thriller.

Harry Potter is the most appealing character I've ever known

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) - book cover picture

Although I have not read Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of it. I find the Quidditch area of the book exciting. Oh whenever I read the book how I wish Hogwarts were real and I could be a student there. Never a dull momment (unlike math class) makes it enjoyable. There is one thing I reccomend, though. Have a piece of paper handy to write down any little detail. It just might come in handy. Take the little brown package, or Quirrel's turban, for instance. I kept track of how he never took it off and how the little package contained the heart of the story.

Healing Back Pain : The Mind-Body Connection - book cover picture

I've had a mysterious back problem for over a year. I was diagnosed with sciatica and sacro-iliac joint dysfunction. After too many trips to the Chiropractor only to be relieved temporarily, I decided to take the issue into my own hands and research it. I came across many materials and decided on Dr. Sarno's book and within 6 hours started to feel an easing of the pain. Within two days I was cured and have not had one problem since. He gives you the courage to believe that your back is strong and healthy and can endure much more than medical professionals lead you to believe. Now when I get stressed, I talk to myself and recognize the problem...before it becomes a physical issue and manifests itself in my lower back. If you are open-minded and truly want to live life to it's fullest and eliminate the limitations that back pain cause, get this book, read it and put it to work for you! It has changed my life.
