Burke At His Best

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

James Lee Burke just gets better with each successive novel, whether in the Dave Robicheaux series or this new series, begun in "Cimarron Rose" and continued in "Heartwood." Here, as in his prevoius books, he creates fully-developed characters that leap off the pages and a compelling plot line, and combines this with his hypnotic decriptive power to create a novel that transcends the mystery genre to take its place as a full-blown work of literature. Read "Cimarron Rose" first, and then read "Heartwood." You will be very glad you did. (I also highly recommend "The Lost Get-Back Boogie," one of his first novels and, to my mind, one of his best.)

Meyers did a pretty good job with this one, keeping one's interest on what is sometimes not the most interesting subject. Some contradictions occur, from section to section, but if your read carefully you know the crux of what the author is trying to illustrate (it is over 1200 pages; frankly I'm surprised there aren't more instances). Buy this book (3rd edition), if you want to pass the A+ Certification.

Caregiving : The Spiritual Journey of Love, Loss, and Renewal - book cover picture

Caregiving is a special gift, written from the heart. I haven't been able to keep a copy. As soon as I get a new one, I give it away. The saying goes that one can't judge a book by its cover, but Caregiving's cover picture reveals the depths to which one goes, as page by page Beth shares her own and others experiences with caregiving, death, and the growth that can come from such profound moments. As a licensed clinical social worker and as someone who has experienced the death of both parents, I say brava! A wonderful weaving of poetic wisdom and practical suggestions.

The Design Patterns Smalltalk Companion (Software Patterns Series) - book cover picture

In 1996, as a novice Smalltalker and Object designer in college, I read the GOF Patterns book. The potential power of patterns were immediately obvious but the concepts of applying them in practical terms was not! This book presents the GOF patterns from a slightly different perspective and its examples of practical applications, code snippets and references to the various Smalltalk dialects was invaluable and "tied up a lot of loose ends" for me.The book is a perfect companion to the original GOF patterns book and I feel it will stand in its own right as a valuable patterns resource. As such it should become part of any Object designers personal reference library.Congratulations and thanks to the co-authors.

Woman Of Mystery  (A Memory Away ...) (Harlequin Intrigue, No. 515) - book cover picture

Charlotte Douglas' _A Woman of Mystery_ is a suspenseful story that is packed with action and emotion. Former cop Jordan Trouble didn't want to be anyone's hero, but when a beautiful woman with amnesia ended up in his arms, he couldn't resist helping her. Little did he suspect the surprises the woman's past held...or the passion she would bring to his present.Even though amnesia stories are overdone, this one and last month's "Lover, Stranger" prove they can still be effective when done well. I was skeptical at first--the hero is actually named Trouble? Ugh--but the story soon won me over. The love story unfolds at a natural, satisfying rate, while the mystery never stops surprising. For most of the book, it's hard to tell what will happen next, as Charlotte delivers one surprise after another. Jordan and his mystery lady are two people you'll really come to care about. Anyone looking for a great mystery and love story will be pleased with this one.

I approached this with some scepticism as it's a book commonly viewed as Big Literature (which usually means a wordy exercise of very little point, in my experience). Not so. This was absolutely amazing. I literally could NOT put it down, to the point of being annoying while on the beach and friends wanted to chat. Chat? I couldn't get my head out of this fantastic book! It was so suspenseful. Brilliant characterisation (I presume we're MEANT to think Rose a bit of a middle-class British tosser) and so well-researched/invented. As soon as I'd finished it I turned back to the beginning. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who's logged on and is wondering whether to buy it. Scary, but so engaging.

The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

I read in Romantic Times about Julia Quinn's dilemma with the title of this book: personally, I prefer "Daphne and the Duke." But that's neither here nor there.Take my advice: don't start reading this book unless you have plenty of time to finish. It was agony when I had to leave to go to work when only halfway done. You truly won't want to put it down. This heartwarming tale of an emotionally troubled duke who is entranced and eventually healed by a loving young woman from a delightfully healthy family is a definite keeper."How To Marry a Marquis" was so good I couldn't imagine a better one, but this one manages the task. Julia Quinn definitely has what it takes to keep a reader enthralled from beginning to end! I'm looking forward to the next one!

Complete Idiot's Guide to Publishing Magazine Articles - book cover picture

Over the last week or so, I've been reading The Complete Idiot's Guide To Publishing Magazine Articles by Sheree Bykofsky, Jennifer Basye Sander, and Lynne Rominger. If you're inclined to want to explore this area of freelance writing, I would readily recommend this book for you.The authors take a topic with an abundance of material and present it in an entertaining, digestible fashion. They cover topics from what a freelance writer does, the basics of writing, and how the periodical industry works, to how to write an effective article and how to treat your writing as a business. When you finish, you'll be able to tell whether this is something you want to pursue, as well as how to get started.For me, I learned some tips on writing style (which is always good). I also received some confirmation that steps I've taken already are leading me down the right path.Bottom line... this is an excellent book to move you further along in the periodical freelancing area.

I just finished this book and my heart is still racing. At first, I thought it was going to be about the typical mid-life crisis that seems to happen to the shallow, bored, yuppie type characters that have too much money and not enough commitment to their familes. In fact, I was just ready to close it and take it back to the library. (I always feel compelled to read a book even if I don't like it, feel like I am disloyal to the author.)
I decided to read another chapter and on page 53, wow, the story began to explode and I was drawn into it and could not put it down. It has so many unpredictable twists and turns that make it one of the best books I've read in since Mystic River.

I want to thank you for this book Keller. I am a Caucasian woman and I wonder how a woman so young could have known the story of my mother and me. This is not just the story of culture, but of aspects of abuse that happen to women everywhere., and how we sometimes create even more fear for our girl babies out of our pain. We also may provide the transcendence of that fear. For me the transcendence so poignantly presented was the gift of your book.
