Sabriel (The Abhorsen Trilogy) - book cover picture

Sabriel, an 18 year old girl from the old kingdom, recieves news that her father, the abhorsen, is in danger. So on a periless mission she sets out to find him. It's a story of danger, defiance, death, destiny and love, as Sabriel meets up with a free magic being called Mogget, and a long lost Prince called Touchstone.
This is a fantastic book and the characters and places are brought to life superbly. Sabriel has to grow up fast and finds herself falling in love with the servile Touchstone, who is trying to regain his memory.
But the best character is Mogget. He's sarcastic, sardonic and sly, you just know he's up to something

Duke of Sin (Avon Romantic Treasures) - book cover picture

I have never read a book I was compiled to write a review on. This book was one of the best historical romance's I have ever read. It launched me back to a magical time where fantasy and reality could seem to be a real possibility. Because the Author did such a wonderful job of developing the heroine and hero,(he was to die for) they seemed like I was reading about real people. The love scenes were wonderful and you have the sense the characters really loved and respected each other. The end of the book had the most beautiful, romantic words I have ever read, I was so moved by the words, I wept. Thank you Ms. Ashworth for a book I will keep on my keeper's shelf. I have already read it twice. I hope you write a book about the secondary characters of Colin and Sam, especially Colin, he seems to be the kind of rogue I would go for. I have already pre-ordered this Author's new book coming in the Spring of 2005.

What Imagination

Binding: Hardcover
The Years of Rice and Salt - book cover picture

The Years of Rice and Salt is a tremendous undertaking, and if Robinson does not take it as far as it can go, so what? This is still a wonderful alternative history. Covering a thousand years of such alternative history is certainly ambitious and for the most part, this novel works. We follow a few souls (who conveniently always have names beginning with the same letter) through this alternative history, which begins with all of Europe wiped out by the plague. The souls are reborn and many times make the same mistakes from prior lives. Robinson certainly has his opinions on what works in our current civilization and extrapolates these ideas into his alternative history. This is an interesting, imaginative book that I found to be quite pleasurable to read. It can be a lot of fun if you don't take it too seriously.

Princeton Review: Cracking the GRE CAT with Sample Tests on CD-ROM, 2000 Edition (Cracking the Gre Cat With Sample Tests on CD Rom, 2000) - book cover picture

Lurie does an excellent job in covering the material that is tested on the GRE in a very cut, and dry, manner. Each of the three general tests are discussed with examples of problems you will see, and tricks for solving them. Lurie does a good review of basic mathematical principles you have forgotten, and gives excellent techniques for solving analytical problems. The software is easy to install, and helpful. The best thing about the book/software combo: no surprises!

The Hot Zone : A Terrifying True Story - book cover picture

I think this book captures the fear and constant threat but at the same time unreal threat of a worldwide outbreak of a deadly 7 protein virus that lurkes deep it the African jungle. While at the same time telling stories of peolple who fought and worked to stop this disease. This book was by far the best virus/outbrak bookI have every read. And anyone who enjoys these types of books will certainly love this.

Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa - book cover picture

Keith Richburg was in Hong Kong for the "Washington Post" when this was published (maybe still is). I wonder if that was related to the publication of this book. Because he certainly avoided a LOT of flak from his fellow black Americans, by being there, who certainly screamed "Uncle Tom" when reading (or hearing about) this book. Which is why this book is to be commended. It's honest, and daring. I love Africa, lived there for a time. And you can still see the beauty of it, and still say "It's a MESS!" Corruption bleeds (which is why we shouldn't be so cavalier about corruption in the Clinton White House, just because the Dow Jones is high. Corruption is contagious.) For Keith Richburg to say he's glad his ancestors were brought over as slaves, because it meant he got to be an American rather than an African is a VERY controversial thing to say. Which is why I applaud Mr. Richburg for having the courage to say it, and for writing this book.

OLAP Solutions: Building Multidimensional Information Systems - book cover picture

A "10" book, because there's no other on that subject. The book is comprehensiv - very detailed and the software is excellent. The only fault: the author is to often concerned to explain was has been written chapters before and what will be written the chapter that follow insteed to write on the current subject.
My rating is
a 10 for necessity
a 10 for the software
a 3 for style of writin

The Discoverers - book cover picture

A demanding, vast, heavyweight of a book is what this is, yet those who take up the challenge and cross its pages from cover to cover will have arrived at a destination that justifies every hour of the journey. Here a man wrestles the oldest and most demanding of concepts and dares to throw questions back into the unknown. This volume crawls across time itself and takes its readers closer than any book yet written to the greatest minds the human species has managed thru some miraculous chance to create. All of the giants are here, men whose names construct the very backbone of science and human discovery. On Boorstin's brave voyage absolute enlightenment may not be attained, but it may certainly be pursued.

Dark Rivers of the Heart - book cover picture

This is my favorite of Koontz's books, at least so far, although I've never been disappointed by this author. Dark Rivers of the Heart shows how much normalcy can surround even the most evil in our society. There is also the added intrigue of the government and what personal dramas and manipulations may be going on behind the scenes. Dean Koontz is truly a master at weaving ordinary characters into extrodinary circumstances.

My husband and I have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for five years. I recently read Toni Wechsler's book and, although I don't know if I'll ever conceive, I now feel more educated and prepared to understand my own body than I ever have! I only wish I knew five years ago what I know now as a result of this exciting and informative book. My main reaction in reading this book was "OH! Why didn't my doctor ever tell me this?"
