Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded, August 27, 1883 - book cover picture

Simon Winchester has turned out many books on many subjects, with their two common qualities being the excellence of his language and the thoroughness of his research, so that the lucky reader is both amused and informed. In Krakatoa Winchester has returned to his roots as a geologist to describe one of the most horrendous volcanic eruptions of all time. In the process of doing so Winchester enlightens us on the theory and history of plate tectonics, the spice trade and its impact on present day Indonesia, the colonial empires of the British and Dutch, Alfred Russell Wallace's research and its parallels with that of Charles Darwin, and the growth of fundamentalist Islam as well as tracing the history of the 1883 explosion and its immediate consequences. He manages all of this in a little less than 400 pages with prose which is witty and crisp. Read Krakatoa even if you think you have absolutely no interest in volcanoes. You will become an instant Simon Winchester fan.

Time to Hunt (audio CD) - book cover picture

The Swagger books are classic but Time to Hunt is by far the greatest! I am only 23 years old but my father, being an English teacher and Vietnam Veteran, tuned me onto Hunter and I can't get enough! "Bob the Nailer" is a great story so I am begging, PLEASE don't lay him down to rest! Donny Fenn is a great addition to Swagger. Julie is the girl back home that every boy in "Nam" kept in his mind. A great story that kept me on the edge of my seat! A man like Swagger can never rest easy, he has too many demons that will not let him rest...long live Swagger! All of Mr. Hunters books are great, but the Swagger saga is an American classic!

The Scions of Shannara (Heritage of Shannara (Paperback)) - book cover picture

A basic overview: The druid Allanon comes back in the form of a spirit long enough to foretell the dreary future and to lay tasks upon Par and Col Ohsmford, Wren Elessidil and Walker Boh. Par must find the Sword of Shannara, Wren bring back the Lost Elves and Walker to find the Black Elfstone.To accompany this intriguing storyline is a cast of characters that are as fascinating as the main characters. This books opens into the same world as all the other books of shannara -only 300 years after the previous book. The wrinting along with characters and amazong storyline come together perfectly to form a great book. Just make sure that you have the ones that follow it already on hand when you finish it.

If there be an afterlife...one could do FAR worse!

Jim Morrison's Adventures in the Afterlife: A Novel - book cover picture

Confucius say: Do Not Judge Book By Cover...and by extention,do not choose book by title! Anyone picking up this book hoping for yet another tired Doors retrospective will,like Mr. Price,be sadly disappointed! However,if,like myself,you can joyfully suspend your disbelief for this wonderfully decadent,psychedelic thrill ride(not thriller!),you are in for the time of your afterlife! Mick has reached deep into his considerable experience of late 20th century weirdness and trash culture to produce one of the strangest trips I have ever taken without drugs...or at least a car! The ONLY Doors reference that needs to be applied to this book is that the archetypal Jim Morrison REALLY manages to "break on through...to the other side"! Not for the small of mind or the miserly of imagination.

Don't miss this one!


Book title: The Viscount Who Loved Me
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Viscount Who Loved Me - book cover picture

What a wonderful story. I just finished this book and I am so sad that the story is over. Anthony and Kate have become very real. Anthony has decided that it is time that he was married. His chosen bride is to be the shining star of the season Edwina. Kate (Edwina's sister) is very protective and has to be sure that the man who marries her sister is worthy of the honor. Anthony & Kate spend so much time together trying to work out the situation, that they forget that Edwina is even in the picture. The best part about this book is that all of the characters in it are so refreshing. I wanted to know more about each one of them. My favorite scene is the family game of Pall Mall. I laughed out loud. The facial expressions, the conversations, I actually felt like I was there watching the game. What a fun book to read. Highly recommended!

An Amazing Read!

Abhorsen (The Abhorsen Trilogy) - book cover picture

If you haven't read these books, start right now. Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen are three of the most amazing books I have ever read. They are set in a world so much like our own, but yet so different and will have you entranced all the way through.I hope that maybe Garth Nix will start a new trilogy that is set in the same world as these three, so I can read more of the Abhorsen stories, or perhaps, stories from the Clayr or royal family.

Bloodlist (Vampire Files (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I was a little bit leary when I picked up this book. I didn't really know if the book would hold my attention... I really do not like Mystery novels, but LOVE Vampire books. I decided to give the book a shot... ended up buying every book in the series half way through Bloodlist. I can't wait for the next book!Jack Fleming is one of the coolest vampires I have ever had the pleasure of reading about! He is not the typical vampire. He's a really nice guy. He doesn't wear a cape or speak with a French accent. He's from Cincinnati. Charles Escott... more intelligent than the average sidekick... and more amusing! I can't wait for the next book in the series, so I can learn more about him!This is just a wonderful book series. A vampire story with a Noir twist. Jack doesn't stalk the night to find food... he wants to find criminals. He's the sidekick to a Private Agent! Or is the Private Agent the sidekick to Jack? Hmmn...

Ashes in the Wind - book cover picture

Can Kathleen Woodiwiss write anything but the best? Cole Latimer and Alaina are such a unique couple. Brought together under bizarre circumstances, but you know only fate could have managed bringing them together. A couple that truly stayed together through "thick and thin" and perservered. This book brought tears to my eyes with the surprise ending. I only wish Kathleen would come with a new novel, it's been awhile. I've read every novel of hers and every single one was OUTSTANDING! This book is a keeper
