The First Two Lives of Lukas-Kasha (Puffin Novel) - book cover picture

Remembering Lloyd Alexander from when I enjoyed his novels in grade school, I just had to pick up and read this book when a younger sibling checked it out of the library. It was every bit as entertaining and delightful as I remember his other books (mostly the Prydain Chronicles) to be. It tells the humorous tale of the town delinquent, Lukas Kasha, and how he is magically transported to the kingdom of Abadan where the people instantly hail him as king. All is not well in the kingdom; however, and the story shows how Lukas is transformed (almost against his will) into a mature and responsible man. Lloyd still spins a wonderful story, and "The First Two Lives of Lukas-Kasha" is guaranteed to entertain.

Magnificient, thought-provoking photos

Saving Graces: Images of Women European Cemeteries - book cover picture

This is a beautiful book with wonderful, thought-provoking photos of weeping women, gladdened women, resting women, all kinds of women mourning a loved one. The essays by the author and by Joyce Carol Oates clarify the mystery of the sculptures and why they explain more about the living than about the dead. These photos were all taken in European cemeteries. Surely there must be a comparable book for the U.S. This one is well worth the price; it is truly exquisite.

Crash Course for the GRE : 10 Easy Steps to a Higher Score (Princeton Review Series) - book cover picture

This book provided me with an excellent overview of GRE strategies and information. It does not contain any vocab words, but it definitely has very effective ideas on how to boost your verbal score. You have to carefully read and reread the math section because there are a lot of helpful math tips and information presented in a small space. The analytical section is so clearly laid out that it was better than most of the bigger GRE books I bought. I recommend buying it because it will effectively summarize the larger GRE books that are easy to get lost in.

A great author and professor!


Book title: Physical Chemistry
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Physical Chemistry - book cover picture

Prof. Ira Levine - the author of this text -- teaches at my alma mater, Brooklyn College. When I was an undergraduate, I was fortunate enough to take him for both semesters of Physical Chemistry. I must admit that he is both a wonderful lecturer and a great author. Any serious Physical Chemistry student should consider his textbook, which is clearly, written and well-organized. If you have any questions regarding my experiences with the textbook and/or lectures, feel free to e-mail me.

The Teddy Bears' Picnic - book cover picture

Because I am a deadhead I was drawn to buy this book not only for myself but also for my children. Jerry Garcia is able to tell a wonderful story using music. Jerry and David form a great team and tell great stories together. This book is not only for children but also for anyone who loves a good story teller(s). I would reccommend this book to anyone who has children and to those who want to enjoy a great moment with their children. Jerry Garcia is a legend who's music, book, and spirit will live on with all who were blessed to hear and share in his wonderful music making and now story telling.

Smoke your way to heaven.


Book title: Thank You for Smoking
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Thank You for Smoking - book cover picture

Christopher Buckley has struck gold with Thank You for Smoking. Not since the 1997 blockbuster hit Alien Resurreciton, have I been made to sympathize with such an abominable character. Just as Jean-Pierre Jeunet made us sympathize with the mutant ali-human children of the Ellen Ripley clone, Buckley made me love the nasty, carcenogenic Nick Naylor. The connection between director Jeunet and author Buckley is the ability to make readers and viewers sympathize with immanent death. Only a truly talented individual could make a human sympathize with the natural element against which evolution has fought. Buckley has done just this. Nick Naylor, knowing that smoking in hazardous to human health, spends his career convincing the American public otherwise. He impregnates an entire nation's chest with certain death. But Buckley manages to make us love Nick, who is doing nothing more than persuing the American Dream by any means necessary.

Seasons 11-12, Complete

The Simpsons Beyond Forever!: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family...Still Continued - book cover picture

The first book covers seasons 1-8. This third book in the series, like the second book only covers two seasons: 11 and 12. Each episode gets a two page spread, while many of the episodes in the first book only had one page. This allows far greater detail to be covered, just as in the second book.I keep all (currently) three books near the TV, and I'll review the pages for each episode before I watch the rerun. In doing so, it opens my eyes to a lot of the little details that I missed the first fifty times I saw the episode.Essentially, this is the owners manual for seasons 11 and 12.

The Scarlet Empress (2176) - book cover picture

I'm bleary-eyed -- just finished reading The Scarlet Empress, and I'm blown away. The whole 2176 series, with its deep, patriotic themes and high stakes, has breakout written all over it. Better yet, The Scarlet Empress really delivers on the series' premise, with action, humor, and excellent romance. I was on the edge of my seat, palms sweating, as dual heroines bring the story to a kick [...]finale.

Count me as a big fan.

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1) - book cover picture

This is the rare children's book that will probably... er, definitely be enjoyed more by adults than by children. It's true, the story of the Baudelaire children is depressing, but once you get passed that, Snicket has a Douglas Adams-like wit which results in a lot of dark humor. There's also a good supply of plot twists to keep anyone over 12 occupied. The kids emerge alright in this one and survive to move onto another story. What will happen in the next book? I don't know, but no doubt it will be filled with doom and gloom and impossible situations that the Baudelair orphans will escape by their wits for a short time before their next terrfying ordeal begins.Lemony Snicket is actually Daniel Handler, by the way. I saw him play his accordion with the Magnetic Fields in concert once, and you'd never expect something this good from some guy in the background. Good job, Daniel.

Death of a Fool (A Roderick Alleyn Mystery) - book cover picture

To celebrate the Winter Solstice, the swordsmen of South Mardian intricately weave their blades in an ancient ritual dance. When one of their number is found decapitated, this hallowed fertility rite is corrupted into a pageant of death. Inspector Roderick Alleyn is called upon to solve the murder and in doing so finds himself plunged into a morass of mysteries, secrets and sins of this eccentric group, along with a surly blacksmith, a domineering dowager, and a not-so-simple village idiot.
