Dune (Dune Chronicles (Econo-Clad Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Dune by Frank Herbert 517 pages
Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons/New York

The shields are down. The Duke has been shot. The Harkonnen are approaching
Arrakeen. Dune is filled with excitement and suspense. It's an experience of the future.
Will the Atreides defeat the Harkonnens? Or will they be left in ruin? I think this is the
best science-fiction book I have ever read. There is a lot of action and you can
understand most of the things written. There were only a few parts where I was a little
lost, and I didn't know what was going on. There were manythings I liked about this book that kept me "hooked" in. The first thing is the suspense. The things Frank Herbert
wrote just kept making me want to go on to the next chapter and on."
I thinkDune is an excellent book and everyone should give it a try. I highly recommendthis to anyone. There isn't anyone who doesn't like action and excitement.

The Opposite of Fate : Memories of a Writing Life - book cover picture

What an interesting book this is. I would call this a memoir, yet musings is appropriate as this is about bits and pieces of the author's life in no particular order. She is American through and through, yet her parents were from China and she has many relatives there. Amy has an academic background, yet is down to earth with language for the common man and a sense of humor that is refreshing. Her mother is a major influence in her life and stories about her are very, very different from the "typical" American mother; you will enjoy! Amy talks about the process of creating stories and, like other authors, she has no idea where all the gist for her mill comes from. Do not pass over the last section in the book titled Hope, nor the last chapter titled, "The Opposite of Fate." Life changing coincidences has happened many times in her life and you should read about them. This is an exceptional tome.

One False Move (Myron Bolitar Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

This is one of those rare books where I just couldn't pry my fingers off the cover. I was caught in the web from the opening paragraph. Myron gets more interesting with each book, and this book had it all. It was laugh out loud funny in a few spots and had me in tears at least once. Coben has created the most exciting trio in fiction today. I highly recommend this book and all the others in this marvelous series!

The best short story writer I've yet read

Book title: Cold Snap : Stories
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Cold Snap : Stories - book cover picture

Short stories are my gig, and upon finding Thom Jones (Cold Snap & The Pugilist at Rest), I'll simply say -- in case you care, because if you didn't, you certainly wouldn't be reading reader reviews, now would you? -- that Mr. Jones is the very zenith of the art. Yes, his stories are tense, dark, foreboding, gritty -- and real and often very funny. The dark humor found in Thom Jones' writing mirrors that of this so-called "real life," complete with subtle affronts to the laughable state of humanity, the shells of men and the chemical escapism that entices many of them into subscription, and characters real enough to make you think twice about with whom you allow yourself to be surrounded. All in all, a fantastic, stunning compilation. Read it. Twice. You won't regret it.

Girl, Interrupted (Faber and Faber Screenplays) - book cover picture

Once in a while you read a book that leaves an aftertaste like good cognac would. Girl, Interrupted is such a book. The writing is simple and so good. I was laughing as I was reading it and reading passages again and again, because they were vital and written with just the right amount of cynicism. The story in itself is witty and ironical. This book is one of the best I have read in a very long time. This author knows how to say what she wants to say without using superfluous language.

Uncommon Grounds : The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World - book cover picture

This informative book is truly a joy to read, and any coffee drinker (serious coffee drinker, anyways) would benefit from this work. It offers an enlightening insight into the incredible coffee economy and outlines the disproportionate balance of profit that is a result from this inconspicuous plant. Not focused simply on the drink itself, Pendergrast writes of those this commodity impacts. Look for more than amusing tales of the coffee world and trite chapters on how to best brew the beans; this book is for those who are seriously interested in their favorite drink or who are curious about the history of a world commodity that has shaped both our economic and natural environment.

I just finished, and I already miss Jamie!

The Fiery Cross - book cover picture

I just finished the story, and already I miss the thought of escaping into Jamie and Claire's world! I loved this addition to the wonderful books chronicling their adventures and romance. The only disappointment is that the next book isn't out yet. Like the previous reviewer I read slower and slower as I neared the end, and did my best to delay finishing the book. I just wasn't ready to say goodbye to the characters for another few years. In fact, I have owned this book for over a year and restrained myself from reading it until now because I knew how bittersweet it would be to come to the end. I highly recommend this book! It's definitely a must-read if you've been following the series. If you haven't, start with Outlander and savor every minute of the experience... soon you'll be waiting impatiently for the next book!

THE Everest Book to Own

Binding: Audio CD
Into Thin Air - book cover picture

I, like milliones of other American's, knew little about Mount Everest before reading Krakauer's account of the 1996 Everest Tragedy. This book, is so well written and absorbing you will not want to put it down until you have read the entire book. Krakauer pulls you in to the adventure with info on the mountain's history and will not let you go until you have finished the last page. Upon compleating this book, I went on the read other accounts of the 96' tragedy and they do not touch Krakauer's. This is the 96' Everest book to own and is miles above the competiton. Adventure fan or not, everyone must read this wonderful piece of literature.

Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream - book cover picture

I thought that Friday Night Lights was a great book that can relate to not only football players, but basically to anyone. The book begins by telling how the town is behind and supports he high school team. The football players get ladies to run around and run errands for them. As the book goes on it follows the team thourought their season an all the injuries and distractions each player has to deal with.

Mothers Who Think : Tales of Real-Life Parenthood - book cover picture

I bought this book to hear a variety of voices on the topic of motherhood. With a fussy, incredibly needy baby of my own, the idea of reading sugar coated tales of motherhood repulsed me. What a FIND this book turned out to be!! Filled with stories from all walks of life, this book captures the highs and lows of motherhood with humor and tenderness. Full of Laugh-out-loud moments, muy husband had me reading out loud so we could laugh about running out of diapers and 5 am wake up calls together. A great read that I turn to often for my short story fix.
