Flash 4! Creative Web Animation (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

I have not read any other Flash books, so I admit I have nothing to compare it to. I also bought Flash online, so I never even had a Flash manual, just the online tutorials. But for someone like me who started goofing around with Flash, got it to do some basic stuff, and then wanted to do more with it, this book delivers. Easy to read, clear examples, and a great CD with Quick-Time examples of real-world tasks. It may not make you a true Flash guru, but after reading the book and following the excellent CD excercises, you'll definitely be able to do more than you thought you could. Enjoy!

Serial Composition and Atonality: An Introduction to the Music of Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern - book cover picture

As far as I can tell, George Perle's books are the only ones that really come to grips with atonality. Others are either 1) simplistic glosses, 2) pieces of propaganda, or 3) attempts to impress or intimidate the reader (so as to entrench their authors in academia). Having heard one of George Perle's piano sonatas on the radio the other day and once a string quartet of his in concert, I can testify that he is himself a first-rate composer, and isn't it better to read the works of one who has an artistic stake in his subject?However, for a contrasting point of view, I also recommend--with reservations--"Milton Babbitt: Words about Music", edited by Stephen Dembski. Like George Perle, Milton Babbitt is a prominent serialist composer. As it happens, I'm not a particular fan of his music, and I think his analyses tend miss the substance of the music he analyzes, but he is an influential, articulate, and intelligent exponent worth hearing out.

One of the best ever

Trainspotting - book cover picture

This is a book about life the way it really is, ken? Irvine Welsh is a master author who draws you in and doesn't let go, even after you've finished the book. He writes about what no other author dares touch with a five hundred foot pole. There were times (more than once) when I would finish reading a chapter and just sit back and say "Wow," and sigh and wipe back a small tear. This is simply one of the greatest books ever written and deserves to be a staple of all school curriculum. There is so much in this book that isn't in the movie - think of it as reading the cut scenes from the movie. Buy it today. Then pass it on to a complete stranger. They'll thank you, I guarantee it.

Sourcery (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

Another book that is just as incredible as all other Rincewind books... i am slowly finding that he is my favorite character. It has tons and tons of fun and the story is very enganging and interesting. And there is something happening all the time (unlike wyrd systers which i didn't like very much.) Anyway, the only thing I really didn't like is the harsh way some characters were acting agains Rincewind... I mean, we all know how everybody is making fun of him and all but in this book there are a few occasions that it was too harsh. But overall a stellar read.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) - book cover picture

In the tradition of "Mists of Avalon," Martin's series of books really propel the reader with exquisite character development, intelligent style, and the ability to hold the reader's "suspension of disbelief" so well that I have started to use vocabulary only found in Martin's imagination in everyday life!The story of several warring nobles houses is compelling due to its sense that no one house is just. Each family has a certain amount of good and evil, and because of that, relating to them is not so difficult. I often find that in reading books about the fall of nobility (think "Gone with The Wind"), I have trouble identifying with the characters, but in Martin's novel, I certainly do not.I highly recommend this book and hope you found this insight helpful.

The Neverending Story - book cover picture

I loved this book, to say the least. Although, I have noticed that some readers misread what was on the back of AURYN. I'm almost positive it reads "DO AS YOU WISH", not "DO WHAT YOU WISH". A simple mistake. But, the meaning is very clear. Ende takes you to Fantastica and makes you want to stay there forever. When I finished, the first thing I wanted to do was read it again, just so I could go back to that wonderful place. And I'm assuming from the other reviews that the general public agrees with me. This is a book for everyone!!!!

The Red Tent : A Novel - book cover picture

We have been lost to each other for so long...I am so grateful you have come...Blessings on your eyes. Blessings on your children. Blessings on the ground beneath you. My heart is a ladle of sweet water, brimming over. Selah."As of 082903, this book is among the Top Ten Most Popular (most registered) Books on BookCrossing.com. It's not hard to see why. It's the kind of book that should be passed from sister to sister, mother to daughter, generation to generation. Women in the Bible have generally been portrayed as virgins or harlots, often serving as postscripts to the more familiar stories of men who begat men. But who gives birth to those men? Strong, splendid, complicated, terrible, beautiful women. Anita Diamant weaves a compelling tale of the most vivid, human characters. Her writing flows like the Nile. Rock on.

The Viscount Who Loved Me - book cover picture

The Viscount Who Loved Me is a very outstanding book. I absolutely loved it and was so sorry when it ended. It had some very funny scenes (especially the desk and bee scene) and had some sad moments, too. Anthony and Kate are very special characters and deserved to be with one another so much. I am in awe of Ms. Quinn's talent. She is an extraordinary writer and keeps qetting better and better. I just cannot say enough about the book and Ms. Quinn's writing. All her books are favorites and I just cannot wait until the next Bridgerton brother's story to come out.

Becoming a "Women's Murder Club" Fan......


Book title: 4th of July
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
4th of July - book cover picture

In my opinion, this is the best of Patterson's "Women's Murder Club" series. Although I have always been intrigued by the character of Lt. Lindsay Boxer, the setting of Half Moon Bay makes this novel really come together. You get a sense of tranquility reading about life at Cat's house, and it is the perfect place for the author to send Lindsay to "rest and recoup" before her pending trial. As the story unfolds, Lindsay is able to help local authorities solve a series of brutal murders while sewing up an old, unsolved case of her own from 10 years prior. You would never figure out the ending as well. Give it a shot!
