Speaking in Tongues - book cover picture

I don't know what else to say. I've now read almost all of his books and most of his short stories and my review headline says it all. I'm running out of adjectives to describe his books. I've used the words 'awesome', 'superb', magnificent', 'greatest' and 'terrific' to death. I promise I won't use any of those words in THIS review (even though they all could be used to describe SPEAKING IN TONGUES). If you have never read Deaver (WHERE YA BEEN?), then you need to quickly order all his books and have a Deaver-thon. You will NOT be disappointed. This is my guarantee to you (take it for what its worth). Pick ANY book by Deaver and you too will be using the words I am not going to mention in this review (see above) to describe whichever book you pick. I will close this review with two words and a ton of exclamation points for Mr. Deaver. ....WRITE FASTER!

100 Winning Bridge Tips for the Improving Player/Standard American Edition (Master Bridge Series) - book cover picture

This is an excellent book that tries to improve ALL aspects of your game. In bite-sized tips, your game is gradually taken to another level. I especially liked the sections on Declarer play and Defense, with the section on Opening Leads being the best feature of the book. As most players know "Lead Trumps when in doubt" is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. However, I was not sure when I SHOULD lead trumps. The feature of this book in my opinion is clearly laying out when trumps should be lead. These tips include most of the basics like Third Hand High, Rule of 11, as well as a lot more tips that are not as well known. The sequel to this book (50 More Tips ..), while also good, is not as useful for beginning players.

Best Intro to CS and Java Book out there

Java: An Introduction to Computer Science and Programming - book cover picture

i have gone through about 5 books on java but this book along with thinking in java are top shelf. if you are just starting out then savitch's book is a better choice than thinking in java, which assumes prior programming xprience and knowledge. the only complaint against savitch's book is not having a solution to the programming excercises, but that should not prevent you from getting this book. i think it works better because it forces you to solve for the solution.

A tale of woe in Mobuto's Congo/Zaire

In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz: Living on the Brink of Disaster in Mobutu's Congo - book cover picture

This book expertly details the litany of woes which have long afflicted the African nation of Congo/Zaire. The book takes the reader on a journey from the colonial days of the Congo through to the present. While blaming many of Africa's problems on its colonial heritage, the author does a superb job of informing the reader about the vastly difficult challenges which lay ahead for any future leader of Congo/Zaire.

The book that made me a Robin Cook fan!


Book title: Invasion
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Invasion - book cover picture

I wanted science fiction, but ended up getting a medical thriller! Cook even found a way to add black holes into the book! Some people say that new readers shouldn't read this book, bu trust me, it is one of Cook's finest. Unlike any other authors, Cook actually seems to have read "A Brief History of Time" by Hawking. He keeps his book more realistic than Star Trek and a lot more fun also. All the physics of the book are well researched, which is not normally expected from a doctor. (I hate to give it away, but I do not think that we are a product of Alien experiments. Well, that's almost in the beggining of the book anyway.)
So... What are you waiting for, BUY IT!!!

I didn't dream this book!

Big Dog, Little Dog (Pictureback(R)) - book cover picture

I'm thirty years old and I've been searching for this book for 12 years. For the longest time, I thought it was called "Fred and Ted Are Friends". Thank goodness for Amazon's search-inside-the-book feature!!

The book is about two dogs (Fred and Ted) who live together and learn the meaning of communication and cooperation. I love this book because it reminds me of being at my grandma's house. If you've got kids, I'd recommend picking this up for them too to enjoy and treasure.

Just don't get rid of it when they get too old, because they'rgoing to want it again around the time they turn 25.

The Odyssey as it was meant to be experienced!

The Odyssey (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

Having read other great translations in the past, in college and later, I was interested in this new translation and intrigued by the opportunity to hear the work read by a talented actor. The story was meant to be listened to, not read, as it comes from an oral tradition of poetry passed down over hundreds of years before Homer perfected it and wrote it down for posterity. Listening to the tapes literally envelopes one in the imagery of the heroic age. Never before have I enjoyed my ride to work so much. Also, my 5 and 9 year old daughters began requesting it when I drove them to school! You will love these tapes! Also, the related recording of the Iliad with Derek Jacobi was equally amazing. ENJOY!

Excellent, gripping, well-researched

Price of Honor: Muslim Women Lift the Veil of Silence on the Islamic World - book cover picture

I thought this was an incredible book. Jan Goodwin allows the women that she meets to tell their story in their own way. She also interviews women from all different walks of (Islamic) life and women that have different viewpoints, thus presenting all sides of the issue. This is one book that does not deserve to be called biased. There is no attempt to put down Islam, but the misapplication of it. She shows the history of Islam and what it was meant to be and what it is now. She shows the missionary element of it as well. Although I am not a Muslim (I am proud to be a Hindu), I did live in Iraq and Kuwait and can attest that much of what Goodwin narrates is true. I have heard similar stories too many times to be swayed by the other reviewers that swear up and down that this book is an exaggeration. It is no exaggeration, it is only too accurate.

Just Grandma and Me (Look-Look) - book cover picture

This CD has a delightful story of a day at the beach with Grandma and grandson. The text comes in English, German, Spanish and French. All text can be re-read by clicking on the chosen sentence. There are stickers for each page to click and drag including the word read aloud for each sticker plus animated responses when the sticker is correctly placed. There is a great sandcastle at the end that allows for individual creativity and a few starter castles. The music and animation are enchanting. My grandson enjoys it for hours at a time.

The Tolkein Reader


Book title: The Tolkien Reader
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Tolkien Reader - book cover picture

If you loved "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" you should enjoy this book. The Tolkein Reader contains "Farmer Giles of Ham" a fun story about Farmer Giles, a man not inclined to heroism who captures a dragon of emperial lineage, "Tree and Leaf" with Tolkein's essay on fairy stories and the delightful story "Leaf by Niggle". The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is full of lighthearted poetry. Included are several other stories.
My advice? Buy it!!! If you truly enjoy John Ronald Reuel Tolkein's work you won't regret your purchase.
