To Cut a Long Story Short - book cover picture

The cliche "master storyteller" is appropo for Jeffrey Archer in this incredible collection of short stories, but perhaps not sufficient. After I had read a couple of the stories and been entranced and stunned by them, I couldn't help but try to figure out where the remaining stories were going as I read them. There's always a twist, a surprise, an "Ooohh, alright."
I'm not a short-story fan but I am definitely a Jeffrey Archer short-story fanatic.

I would have liked to give 10 stars.......

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man - book cover picture

I would have liked to have given this book 10 stars, but that option was not available. Mikie Moore IS not only a BIG FAT STUPID WHITE MAN, but a MORON to boot. I would like to say more, but that option is not available to someone who respects this forum, and knows that the audience is diverse in age. This book FINALLY acknowledges that this self appointed "emperor" has no G*d damn clothes on. He is more full of baloney than Oscar Myer weenies...speaking of which...that's what he is. He is a self promoting instigator, who in another era would have been black listed. He is full of venom, as well. His fat, rolly polly, jolly man persona doesn't fool the authors of this WONDERFULLY true book, nor does it fool the rest and remainder of the sane people in America.

Stunning, funny, moving series...

Significant Others (The Tales of the City Series, V. 5) - book cover picture

Although this book, like the rest of the Tales of the City series, is relatively light and easy reading, it also manages to be deep and touching. One becomes attached to the characters and wants to read on to see what becomes of them, gets mad at them for some of their choices and may even decide they are no longer friends. The occasional brush with "real" characters helps to add a bit of fun to the stories. A must-read series, this look into the world of 70's and 80's San Francisco is heartwarming and addictive. Written in a way that lets you easily set the book down after each section/chapter (the books were originally created as short pieces that ran in newspapers) a strong caveat is in order: Be careful: you WILL end up reading well past your bedtime!

Tom Clancy's right hand man is just as good


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

When Tom Clancy wrote Hunt for Red October and Red Storm Rising, he turned to Larry Bond. Bond is a genius. This was his first solo novel to my knowledge, and its depiction of Cold War combat in Korea was VERY well done. The story is crisp, and moves quickly, and has all of the hallmarks that made Clancy's early works so intriguingly fun. This also remains Bond's best work, and should be read before any good game of Harpoon begins...

Interview with the Vampire : Anniversary edition (The vampire chronicles) - book cover picture

Anne Rice's "Interview With the Vampire" is by far the best fiction novel of vampire lore. Rice writes with incredible ease and eloquent style that it comes across as poetic. She creates Lestat, Louis, and Claudia with such realistic vividness and vitality that they're pratically frightening. Regardless of subject matter, this book really is about people, their emotions and thoughts (or lack of), and their will to survive at any cost. It is also about love, hatred, jealousy, and betrayal, and relationships. Beautifully well-written, well-paced, and well-done. This book is a definite must-read. Highly recommended. I would say the same applies to the film version with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Kirsten Dunst.

The Fat-Burning Workout : From Fat to Firm in 24 Days - book cover picture

If you negative reviewers already feel so great about yourselves, then why did you buy the book in the first place? You wouldn't need to purchase something to make you feel or look better if you already felt that way. You bought it for the same reason the rest of us did and you know it. We all want to look that good, even if we don't want to admit it out loud.Joyce's books are the bomb! They are motivational and inspiring and are helping me to get in shape and get healthier for ME and ME alone. She looks great and she's 26 years older than I am, for pete's sake!! If she can do it, then I KNOW I can too!

Awesome!!! I loved it.

The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm - book cover picture

I first heard about this book in 6th grade from my reading teacher. We were deciding which book to read in class, this one, or The Big Friendly Giant (Roald Dahl). We ended up reading The BFG, but I remained interested in The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm. I bought it through a class book order in 7th grade, and have read it at least 10 times since then. I am in 9th grade now, but I have once more started to read it. I never thought that life in Zimbabwe in 2194 could be so interesting. Boy, was I wrong! I mean, with the holo-everything, robots, automatic dobermans, nirvana guns, not to forget the Mile-High McIlwaine. I almost feel I have bonded with the three detectives, all while "helping" them with the mystery of the missing children. If I loved this book, surely you will too.

Dark comedic noir set in a cutthroat real-estate office.


Book title: Glengarry Glen Ross
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Glengarry Glen Ross - book cover picture

An office full of small-time real-estate hustlers is the setting of Mamet's blackly-humorous Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Competing against each other for their very jobs while trying to unite against a hostile boss, these characters are brutal Willy Lomans trapped in a world where lying is a virtue and where cruelty is a strength. Yet they are also human beings drawn to each other for support and companionship. When a robbery is committed in their midst, tensions boil over as each man tries to save himself and still make a buck. Mamet has written a brutally-hilarious satire of capitalism and machismo that also manages to be a compassionate portrayal of men caught in inhuman circumstances. This one will make you laugh even as it makes you think

The Ultimate Child Abuse


Book title: Children at War
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Children at War - book cover picture

This book talks about the active recruitment of children in many areas of the world today. He covers how they are recruited, abducted or conscripted, trained and finally set off to fight in whatever hot spot is active at the moment.

The one surprising thing about this book is that it treats this as a new problem. War has always been a young persons game. To read the biographies of woldiers of World War II, a surprising number lied about their age to join the army at fifteen or sixteen years of age. In the American Civil War around 100,000 soldiers were fifteen or younger. A surprising, but unknown number were under ten. The pictures of the end of the Third Reich show young boys greeting Hitler. The first American killed in Afghanistan was shot by a 14 year old sniper.

On the other hand, by bringing attention to the fact that our Army will have to face children in the battlefield Dr. Singer may help prepare our forces and our public for the real world.

I've never read any book more than once, except these....

Drums of Autumn - book cover picture

My husband says I read these books like they're bibles. I started reading Outlander 3 months ago, and haven't stopped reading. Since then, I've read the unabridged version on audio cassette (HIGHLY recommended)at least three times, and each book at least that many times. I pick up one of the books at least every day, flip it open to a random page and read for an hour. I've never read a book, let alone a series of books, that left me craving for more like this. I said it already, but for those of you who haven't listened to the unabridged version of Outlander....DO IT! Davina Porter (reader) is absolutely fantasitc. She gives a voice to the characters of my obsession.
