Escaping into the Open: The Art of Writing True - book cover picture

The best thing about this book is the glimpse into the life of Elizabeth, herself. Her quirkiness and insight is delightful. There is no one whose advice as a writer I'd trust more (although Natalie Goldberg's Banana Rose is beautiful). Her book even includes inspirational fattening recipes! What a brilliant idea! And the writing exercises are fantastic--I really got into them. I must say that while I've read criticisms of her inclusion of her own life, I appreciated (reveled in, more specifically) the anecdotes of her personal experiences. This is a wonderful guide to writing, but it is also a captivating read.

Star Wars: The Paradise Snare : Han Solo Trilogy 1 (AU Star Wars) - book cover picture

This story is truly worthy of the Star Wars title. In a world where Star Wars books seem to materialize in the bookstores every week (some quite good, others not so), it was nice to finally come upon a Star Wars novel that was very heavy on the character development and had just enough of the traditional Sci-Fi element to remind you that this was still the playground that George built. This is not just good Star Wars, but a great, great story that reads like the epic movie that spawned the book series. Multiple locations that are all brought to convincing life by A.C. Crispin, extremely believable characters that you CARE about, and a trimphant ending that really makes you feel that you're sitting in a packed theater having just watched a classic story unfold. The dialogue and relationships are well written and Han Solo has never seemed to real. My only disappointment is that this book could not be honored with a hardcover version. It is a classic.

Where Two Worlds Touch: Spiritual Rites of Passage - book cover picture

I first read this book 5 years ago and it made so much sense of my then senseless world! I just re-read it this past week and was amazed to see how much of the wisdom in this book I had incorporated into my life, the positive affects it has had on me, and that there was more to learn that I did not get the first time around! You will want to read it again and again. This is a MUST HAVE book for anyone who wants to understand the turmoil in their life and how spiritual growth happens. I would also recommend it to those in healing practices and counsiling. A great gift!!! Yes... I want to see this book available again!

Reconciliation with the absurd.


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

After reading "A Happy Death," Camus's first attempt at The Stranger, I've come to appreciate this book much more. The narrative style is much more effective for Camus in developing themes of personal alienation, as it was for "The Fall." Also, I've found The Stranger to be more Kafka influenced, and the parallels between Joseph K. and Mersault are very apparent -- its clear that the model of K. was used to clarify the position of Camus's absurd hero.This book is not really a portrait of atheism, as some say. Its more a description of man's struggle with his own superfluity and his final reconciliation with his indifferent universe. Mersault is not a contemptible man: he is a rational man, only even he does not realize why. Through him we are meant to explore the distant vegetation of the absurd man, the climate of his universe, not its details.Not a somber novel; a beautiful one if read correctly. One of the greatest books ever written.

A Classic in the thriller field.

Hunt for Red October - book cover picture

My favorite Clancy book by far. If you haven't read this, where have you been? I'm on a bit of a crusade though about his latest stuff. Not up to par at all. Instead of giving this millionare more money for subpar books read Bob Mayer's stuff or his pen name books-- THE OMEGA MISSILE (Joe Dalton) which just was published; THE LINE and THE GATE under his Bob McGuire pen names; check his web site for his older books.

A contemporary fantasy novel

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Tombs of Atuan (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 2) - book cover picture

The most interesting thing about Earthsea, as this great addition to the series shows, is that it is believable and totally alien at the same time. The dying cult that reigns over Atuan's dark temples reads as if it were an actual forgotten culture on the fringes of civilization, and the story of the rebirth of "Arha" is introduced with all the air of a ritual with forgotten roots in superstition.The characters of /Tombs of Atuan/ don't act like they're reciting a script; Arha, despite being the revered priestess of her temple, has her own character flaws, and even the heroic Ged falls into a trap nearly as soon as we meet him.If you need a good story for your preteen (or even teen)'s library, without a blatant moral or predictable events, I recommend /The Tombs of Atuan/. It's an excellent contemporary fantasy novel, and draws off of modern philosophy rather than Victorian ideals.

The Hobbits Review


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

Although this book starts off pretty slow it has an amazing story behind it. The book is based on a character named Mr. Baggins and as you can tell he is a hobbit. This little hobbit is on an adventure with goblins to regain stolen treasure from a ferocious dragon. Little does he know that he is also up against a heartless demon under the mountains and more. I think that all fiction lovers should read this book and the rest of the series that follows. I hope this review has helped, have fun.

How to Rip Off Lester Bangs Without Trying OR Lou Reed Kills

Rating: 5/5

Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung - book cover picture

Lester Bangs got it right. He was the only rock critic who wrote with the rhythm of rock 'n' roll and felt to his absolute core every note. He was absolutely insulted by blandness in music, and therefore, never wrote a bland review. His critics often criticize his "digressions," but they're missing the point; after all, great rock and roll is a digression from most socially acceptable behavior. Consequently, this book is absolutely essential for anyone who cares about rock 'n' roll's past, present or future. Read Lester to get to the heart of rock, then read Greil Marcus to come to terms with its uneasy mind.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model - book cover picture

I have over twenty years experience in the modeling business and worked with many models in my career. Roshumba Williams is not only one of the sweetest people you will ever meet she is also a wonderful role model for young women. She has always gone out of her way to help young people and give great advice to those interested in modeling. I think her book is articulate and insightful. I would definitely recommend "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model" to anyone thinking about a career in modeling. It's a great investment and could save thousands of dollars that most schools and agents might charge to those that have no knowledge of how to get started.

Understanding Digital Signal Processing - book cover picture

This book provides excellent introduction to the field of DSP. All major concepts are explained in simple, effective language. Also, the book features a lot of examples that are worked out _completely_. This will be of especial benefit to people with not-so-strong math background.
The author manages to make the subject not only exciting and easy to understand, but also fun to read, with small humorous snippets.
Highly recommended to anyone starting out with DSP!
