The Red Badge of Courage: An Episode of the Civil War - book cover picture

I have Read many books in my life and I have been reading my whole life but the one book that is the best I have ever read is The Red Badge of Courage. the book is about A boy named Henry Fleming.The setting is a Cival War Regiment's camp. "Henry Fleming and tom Wilson exit their tent to the protests of Jim Conklin" Jim swears that they are going to move the next day. No one belived Jim and all the men ridiculed him.Eventuly the company moved, right into the middle of a battle. Every soldier wanted a red badge of courage but what most of them didn't know is that they needed to be wounded in battle. A red badge in a simple flesh wound. The reason I like this book is because it tells a historic/fiction tale. Steven Crane is well Known for bieng a realist. Realists tell stoies in a way that is realistic.I have read many Steven Crane books but there are many other books by him I have to read io have read them all

Red Leaves - book cover picture

I have read the other reviews of this novel, which were long enough to tell more than I want to. However, I know that some felt that it was flat or the characters were not fully developed. I thought it was so visual that it cried out to be made into a movie. I hope someone will take that into account. I generally find that most movies are not as good as the books they are taken from, but I feel this would be a definite exception.

The Runaway Duke (Warner Forever) - book cover picture

Five stars because this book did such a great job of grounding comedy in real tenderness and depth, and I couldn't stop reading it. The characters are never caricatures, not even the bad guys, the highwaymen and Cordelia and Edelston. Connor and Rebecca are real from the moment you meet them, and I liked them immediately. Connor is one of the most unique heros I've encountered in awhile. And heartwarming may be a schmaltzy word, but the book I think is, because you really believe in their romance, that they were meant for each other. It's a true friendship and connection that grows into a love that was just waiting for the time to be right. There are all kinds of wonderful little scenes and characters, too. I've shared it with a few friends and they all liked it, too. Wonder what else Julie Anne Long has in store? Hope she keeps writing.

An excellent history and overview of math

Mathematics: From the Birth of Numbers - book cover picture

If you are interested in mathematics at all you must read this book. It manages to take a subject that can be downright boring to many, and turn it into an interesting account of math down through the ages. It not only provides the reader with a history of each topic in mathematics, as well as teaching about each topic, it also introduces the many, many men and women who have each advanced our knowledge of mathematics.I highly recommend this book.

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

Frank Herbert has done what so many sci fi authors fail to do--created a plausible suggestion of the distant future of mankind, without all the lengthy descriptions of dumb gadgets that litter most sci fi novels. Bravo! It doesn't get much better than this folks. Even the most staunch hater of the sci fi genre would enjoy it. The only way the characters might not be totally realistic is that they are all highly intelligent (and that's not a complaint!) They are unique and intreguing, and the ending to this and the others in the series are far from predictable. I've never completed a series of books (six in all) so quickly. And at the end you'd just kill to be able to become a Bene Gesserit! Happy reading!

Souls in the Great Machine - book cover picture

This book grabs you right away and keeps on going. The combination of excellent storyline and character developement is all too uncommon. What really amazed me was the way Mcmullen was able to switch from one main character to another. The last fourth of the book seemed to lose direction a little bit and did not live up the the rest of the book. Nontheless, this is really not a major flaw. McMullen has joined the very short list of authors whose books I will continue to buy in hardback>

The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives - book cover picture

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor, prominent CFR member, David Rockefeller prot?g? and figurehead for the Trilateral Commision writes in this book pre 9/11.

"Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstances of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. Such a consensus generally existed during World War II and even during the Cold War...In the absence of a comparable external challenge, American society may find it much more difficult to reach agreement regarding foreign policies that cannot be directly related to central beliefs and widely shared cultural-ethnic sympathies and that still require an enduring and sometimes costly imperial engagement."


5 stars for his work. Although in no way do I advocate what the worlds elites are doing.

When Autism Strikes: Families Cope With Childhood Disintegrative Disorder - book cover picture

As I have an autistic nephew, I can sympathize with these families. Although he has a different type of autism, I am interested in every type.I found in this book similarities between these children and my nephew. It was a fascinating book, and it held my attention throughout. Anyone will probably enjoy it, especially people who can relate to these stories or people who are interested in childrens' disorders.

Joshua's Hammer (Kirk McGarvey Novels (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Since I first read Critical Mass, Hagberg has had me hooked as a reader. I read Clancy, Bond, and others, but Hagberg seems to have more of an edge, like he's actually lived this life of covert operations. When I read Joshua's Hammer and the plot unfolded to involve Osama Bin-Laden, I was again hooked. When I learned that Bin-Laden indeed was thought to have cancer, it hit me that either Hagberg had this information through his intelligence circles well before us, or he just made a really good guess.I believe that his dynamic, realistic writing style owes a great deal to credible research done in the field by either Hagberg or some of his unnamed associates. The Bin-Laden storyline gives further credibility to this and in my mind establishes Hagberg as the pre-eminent author of this genre.
