A City in Winter : The Queen's Tale - book cover picture

I receantly began this book, one of mystery and intrigue. When happen upon the fact that I loved it and longed to read every night before I slept. The story, of which this author has completed the prerequsite, has the wonderful style of writing that Helprin has attempted and suceeded. The story as rediculas and yet frighting realalistic throws the reader into a society not unlike our own. The story bases itself upon the character developed by Helprin in his previous work, Swan Lake, a collabration with Allsburg. The book is wonderfully written and extreamly enjoyable for all ages. I myself being a teenager the most ejoyable work ever presented as betime reading. The story should be shared with all. This book makes a wonderful story to read to children. I must confess that I have not finished, 20 pages away, but the futre is bright. A warning, Swan Lake may not be suitible for younger childs. A must READ.

HEALING WISDOM FROM THE BIBLE - book cover picture

Dr. James Gibson, does a wonderful job in his book, Healing Wisdom from the Bible, on describing how the Bible is an essential tool for all Christian in dealing with life's ups and downs. Dr. Gibson takes a variety of Old and New Testament scriptures and through his own insight and personal experiences, explains how a particular passage can relate to one's life today. This book will provide a good basis for a new Christian in showing that the stories of the Bible are more than just interesting stories passed on from generation to generation. Rather these scriptures, being the Word of God, contain wisdom that will help us deal with our inner most fears and concerns. For Christians that are very fluent with the Bible, this book may provide a possible new insight on what a particular scripture may mean. No matter what level of Bible knowledge one has, this book will cause you to think about the meaning of scripture.

Abarat - book cover picture

Wow I mean WOW this book is so amazing and suprising I have read it 10 times on Christmas Vacation!
At times it does start to get boring but suddenly when you want to put it down something amazing happens. It is about a young girl named Candy who doesn't like her teacher parents and just everything about her life. One day she goes exploring and meets a man/thing with many heads only to find that he is running from the scariest creature in Abarat. She then finds her way into the Isabella ocean that leads to her journey and suprising adventure in Abarat. The author had perfect detail!
I definently reccomend it for all ages!
It is my new favorite book!

Bushwhacked : Life in George W. Bush's America - book cover picture

Ivins and Dubose have written an excellent book on what we don't hear about in the shallow, corporate-sponsored media we have today. I may never eat meat again. Maybe our representatives on Capitol Hill should read the book -- they might actually get a clue as to what is going on behind their backs. I usually find Ivins funny, and though she has a sense of humor in this book, it is tempered by the facts about how Bush has damaged our country, and is continuing to damage it. As I said in the header to this, this book should be required reading for anyone who plans to vote in the next presidential election (and in my opinion, everyone SHOULD vote if they care about themselves and their loved ones, and their children that they don't have yet).

And Then There Were None - book cover picture

You will probably want to read this book in one sitting. It's the classic "locked room" mystery. Ten people are on an island, no one can get on and no one can get off. One by one, people start to die for their previously unpunished crimes. What I think makes the suspense in this book work so well is that we all have, to varying degrees, a guilty conscience. We've probably all gotten away with something at one time or another. But questions always remain in our minds: Does somebody really know about it? Will I really go unpunished? The killer in "And Then There Were None" may just be what we all fear, the one person who knows our sins, and who's not going to let us get away with it. It's that fear that drives the suspense in this book. Any way you may look at it though, it's still hard to set this book down once you start it.

An Equal Music - book cover picture

I enjoyed this book immensely. Borrowing the words of another famous book title, both the Agony and the Ecstasy of a reclaimed first love relationship are set forth in this often poetic, beautifully drawn story. The passages describing the personal interactions of the Maggiore quartet, and the beauty of the concert tour settings in Vienna and Venice greatly enhance the story. I loved reading this book. The closing paragraph, alone, is woth the price.

A Year In Provence - book cover picture

I live in northern Idaho where we are at the whimsy of the elements and when I stumbled onto this lovely book I was entranced. I can understand moving to an area where it is hard to communicate with the natives.......we have several ethnic groups here.......and although they are a source of enlightenment, sometimes it is hard to get the work done. Mayles has the unique ability to transport one to a place where we all would like to be. Would that we had the wherewithall to accomplish our desires. His sense of humor is not to be excelled. I loved this book and it set me up for the rest. Keep on Mayles! I'm awaiting the next book.

My students loved this book. It's a definite hit. If you love fables and fairy tales this is a must! Also nice to add to your collection are: Grimm's complete fairy tales (Grimm), Great Children's stories (Richardson), The Butterfly (Singh). There are many other great children's books out there, but these were the ones I enjoyed the most. Oh, and I almost forgot the two classics that no children should ever be deprived of: The Little Prince (Exupery) and Charlotte's Web (White).

I loved this book. I was given it one day when i was recovering from an illness. I really enjoy the combination of humor and philosophy that Varley inserts into his books. This book was reminiscent of the better parts of 1984, especially with the Big Brother type theme. I enjoyed the constant twist in plot and his style that is so enjoyable to read. Unfortunately, I lent it to a friend one day, and haven't gotten it back! I can't wait to read it again and again.
