Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics S.) - book cover picture

Wow is the first phrase that came to my mind after finishing this book. It is one of the best I have ever read and certainly my favorite read over the last year. I am sure everyone knows the plot by now so I will not rehash. But I knew the general plot beforehand i.e. "Big Brother" and the thought police, and I was STILL overwhelmed by 1984. Orwell's writing makes you keep coming back for more, always eager to find out how the current situation will turn out, and what will happen next. Besides the sketch of a tyrannical government using mass propaganda to literally brainwash its citizens, Orwell also shows how powerless the ordinary citizen becomes, how much trouble must be gone through to engage in illegal conduct, and how brutal the aftermath of getting caught is. And the love story, which I expected to be the weakest part of the book, is actually fascinating and heartbreaking. A Must-Read if there ever was one!

excellent text on spell working

Book title: Necronomicon Spellbook
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Necronomicon Spellbook - book cover picture

This is an excellent book on the working of spells. Simon gives the fifty names of Marduk as a basis for the working of spells. The spells are easy to work with and do not require exotic ingredients and other hard to find material. This book uses spells instead of evocative magick, which can be dangerous if you dont know what you are doing. This book is NOT a work of fiction, nor is the Necronomicon. These are dangerous books if you dont know what you are doing. I strongly suggest one read a primer on magick first such as Kraigs book, Modern Magick to get grounded in theory and practice. This book is not for armchair magicians. It is for those who seriously want to explore the limitless powers of the human mind. It is claimed that these books are fiction, but no fictional work can give real results. This spellbook works and it works very well. Dont get mixed up with it as a joke. This is serious stuff.

I have read all of Michael Connelly's books and without a doubt, this is the finest! It was fast paced and extremely well written. I have learned never try to guess the ending and this book was no exception. There were several potential endings, however, as usual, you don't really know until the very end.I am very concerned about Harry Boesch. I can't wait to read the next book in the series (if there is one). Thanks Michael, for your fine job!

Vampire Diaries #1: The Awakening (Vampire Diaries) - book cover picture

It is the best story I've ever read. What can I say about it? The first time I ever read the series- well, let's just say I've rarely ever cried that much. It'll get to you. LJ's just got this way of telling you in just the right perspective that makes you feel it is you that all this has happened to. You will feel for these character's & you will become so involved that when it ends you'll want more. I can't recommend the Vampire Diaries experience more: It's a must!

I Know This Much Is True - book cover picture

I read "She's Come Undone" and loved it for the character development, I loved Wally Lamb's newest effort for the very same reason. Lamb seems to love these characters more than anyone in the world could, and builds a great story from that. Another aspect that that works very well in this novel is the parallels between Tempesta's life and that of the Birdsey twins. At first I found the Grandfather's story tiring, but it soon drew me in. This novel could have probably stood alone with out the "story-in-a-story", but it makes the end so much more poignant. Great use of imagery throughout-- monkeys and rabbits have been swimming in my dreams ever since my marathon reading of this book (4 days). My only beef was the ending. I was very happy to see Dominick pull through, but felt that cramming all those good things into that tiny last chapter was a bit too much. Overall, this is a great read. I highly recomend it.

Imani All Mine - book cover picture

I just happened to pick this book up at the library and was glad that I did. Tasha describes feelings in the simpliest of ways that many people have felt, but couldn't put words to. Ms. Porter captured the essence of many, many young women across the nation struggling to survive with children. I laughed and cried for Tasha. I was touched by the depth of her feelings as well as her intelligence. I hope that others will pick up this book, educate themselves and ,like me, feel grateful for the blessings.

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man - book cover picture

This is one of the funniest books I've ever read, and that's not only because I couldn't stop laughing, but also because it was all true. Finally a book that exposes the man who has spent a lifetime lying about others. The most informative part is how we see his personal vendettas becoming the source of his slanted films. For example: we discover his anger comes from actually being fired from places such as GM because he was a poor worker, and so he made a film in an attempt to hurt that company. This is not unlike the vindictive 7-year-old schoolboy who deflates the tires of his least favorite teacher because he failed a test he didn't even bother to study for ahead of time.Great book!

A Pleasant Surprise

Book title: Speechless

Binding: Hardcover
Speechless - book cover picture

I had never heard of Scotty Smith and have never bought any of Steven's music. I have no idea why I even bought this book! But, I soon found out that the lessons Steven and Scotty have learned, the intimacy they have with God, the seasons of doubt they've experienced, and the freedom in God they've developed are for all of us. I have more of a sense of obedience to God, appreciation for his never ending grace and a healthy sense of His awesome holiness, than I ever had before. I want to walk closer, listen harder and love my Lord greater than I ever have before - and I can. It's hard to verbalize what I gained from this book, but I have internalized it and it is a tremendous blessing to have the help of these two Godly men who speak so freely and openly to us from their heart. I'm grateful for their struggles and their victories and even more grateful that they love us enough to transparently share it.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

This is a great book, the way Al Franken uses humor and stone cold facts to dispel all the lies makes it just that much more enjoyable. His quick wit and sharp analysis makes this a page turner. He just tells it like it is, unlike some of lying targets; Bush, Cheney, O'Reilly, and Coulter who spew forth untruths every time they open their mouths. Franken's well guided missiles of truth do irreparable damage to the Right's reputation. It's really great when Franken calls these liars on their lies and he watches in delight as they quickly try to think up another lie to cover the first one, in essence spinning a web of deceit. He uses factual evidence and transcripts from various shows to prove his point, but nut cases like Coulter and O'Reilly still try to say Franken is "spinning" the truth. With pen in hand, Franken slays the ugly monster of lies that is the Right.
