Cather shines as a writer--Antonia shines as a character


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

My Antonia establishes Willa Cather as one of the preeminent writers of the twentieth century, and among the upper echelon of female writers of all time. The imagery of this novel foreshadows the impact industrialization will have on the farms and open spaces of the west. Her characters are likeable and sympathetic. Cather clearly shows the difficulties of immigrants in the late 19th century--the prejudices they faced, the cons and swindles they could easily be duped by. The hardest part of this novel for me was facing the reality of what Antonia, that strong, intelligent girl, becomes when she is grown up. I wanted her to go to college right along with Jim Burden. However, Cather wrote an realistic novel about life on the prairie in the late 1800's--there is no fantasy here. This is beautifully written. A story that will stick with you forever.

A Review of The Human Record: Sources of Global History


Book title: The Human Record, Vol. 1
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Human Record, Vol. 1 - book cover picture

The Human Record: Sources of Global History is an excellent introduction for History students in analyzing and discussing primary source material. The editors have selected not only the most interesting but also the most useful sources in World History. Selections range from the Epic of Gilgamesh, The Book of Genesis, Code of Hammurabi, the Analects, Bhagavad Gita, etc. The only critque I have is that some of the selections are rather short but if used in conjunction with a text book like Traditions and Encounters: A Global Perspective on the Past, and other supplemental material this book will prove beneficial to instructors and students of any World History course. cdeluca@citrus.ucr.edu

Court Duel

Court Duel: The Crown & Court Duet, Book II - book cover picture

This book has recently become my favorite book. After I finished all the books by Tamora Pierce,(all of which I really reccomend that you read) I looked hopelessly for another book to replace it. So I read Court Duel(which should be read after Crown Duel). I absolutely loved it. Court Duel is the second book of The Crown and the Court Duet. In this book, Countess Meliara continues her adventures, only this time, at court. She learns to adapt to the life she once despised. A world where a single movement could make you look good or bad, where everyone masked their true feelings. A world of flirtation and political intrigue. Mel must once again defeat an ambitious ruler from taking advantage of the throne. Not only that, but she finally finds happiness, laughter, and love, and learns to follow her heart.

My favorite book of all time


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

This book was amazing. I could defiently relate to Jemima J. and with JJ. The book is every ugly ducklings fantasy. I was once an ugly duckling and you want people to notice you but untill you love yourself no matter how much weight u lost then no one will notice you. The book defiently showed that. I read the book in 12 hours and trust me I am not really a big reader. Yes the book does start off kind of slow but once you get through the first five chapters you never want to put it down. I cried at the end, because I was soooo sad that the book ended. I want to keep reading and follow jemima through her whole life. If you don't read this book you are missing out! It is defiently a beach book but make sure you will bring another book because you will finsh this book fast!

Absolutely the best in the series!!!!

The Spy (Liars Club) - book cover picture

First off - read these books in order - you will so much more enjoy them and understand them!! This was the best of all - partly because so many other stories had been building from the first book and were resolved but mostly because James and Phillipa might be the most connected of the couples. I just loved Flip - and James thinking her a young lad and liking her so much as a friend and her able to learn so much about James by being a lad - it was a unique way for them to become close. Then when she pretends to be his fantasy a harem dancer - wow that was just so romantic. The whole plot of this book was easier to follow and much more interesting than the prior book - and truly a page turner. There are still a few loose ends to tie up. And I cannot wait for the Charmer.

Hard to Imagine: Gay Male Eroticism in Photography and Film from Their Beginnings to Stonewall - book cover picture

This book collects the amazing research the author has done on physique photography, magazines and gay porn of the 30s, 40s, and 50s. It is great stuff, presented with a smart and detailed analysis. The only downside is the format, a weird and pricey mix of scholarly tome and coffeetable book. With the boom in "visual culture" and gay studies, it's a pity Cambridge has never brought this out in paper: it would be a surefire hit.

I think a younger kid (4-8) would like to read this book. This book takes place at Christmas time in Germany. It is about an old lady named Tante (Auntie). Every year she decorates a Christmas tree for animals and they come enjoy the surprises she has for them. Tante doesn't like spiders so every year she wipes them away. The spiders want to see the tree, but they never get to. Read this book to see what happens to those little spiders this year.

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. - book cover picture

This was a really funny book. I wouldnt call it a great novel of western civilization, but it was fun to read and it didnt bore me. The book's about Margaret, a preteen (theres a LOT of emphasis on the whole "preteen" thing) who moves from New York to a small New Jersey suburb. She makes friends with one of her neighbors, Nancy, who in turn welcomes Margaret into her circle of friends (the two of them and two other girls, Gretchen and Janie, who call themselves the Preteen Sensations). Margaret is the narrarator for the book, and most the things she says are funny (for example, she decides she likes someone for the sole reason that he has clean fingernails), and I can relate to the way she or her friends do or say something asinine out of the blue. If you want to read a book that isnt dumb and doesnt take a lot of time to read, you'll like it too.

The Perfect Recipe : The Ultimate, Hands-Down Best Way to Cook Our Favorite Foods - book cover picture

I only recently got this book, but just getting her basic muffin recipe is worth the price. I have adapted some of my "additions" to her basic recipe with good results, but her basic recipe is the BEST. Muffins are my speciality for work, church, and family, and her recipe and techiques are unsurpassed. (I must confess I use vanilla flavored yogurt, which to me tastes better.) GET THE BOOK! I can't wait to try the baked turkey!

Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques: A Contemporary Guide to the Ancient Investment Techniques of the Far East - book cover picture

Nison's book showed me all the classic reversal patterns that a chart forms. This book doesn't make you an expert trader, it only introduces the patterns that indicate reversals. It doesn't cover all the indicators that are based on price and volume, like MACD, ADX, RSI Bollingers and all that, it looks only at the price patterns formed by the candles.

This book is well worth the price, but buy "Trading for a Living" and "Market Wizards" to pick up the "Why" behind price movement.
