Escape from Warsaw (Original title: The Silver Sword) - book cover picture

I remember reading this in 5th grade. When I heard about it, I was like, "Aw, man this is going to be so BORING!" After my teacher got done reading it I wanted to smack myself for saying that. This book is so good that you will want to read it all the time. It is so vivid and imaginative, plus very suspenseful. You won't want to stop reading after you start, so go get this book now! It is really a wonderful book.

Tim Burton's Style


Book title: The Gashlycrumb Tinies
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Gashlycrumb Tinies - book cover picture

Even though Tim Burton did not write this book, it's almost like he did because it's in the same category as "The Melancholy Death Of Oyster Boy and other stories." Why? Morbid humor. It's that simple. A macabre A-Z book by Edward Gorey is close enough if you ask me. With Edward Gorey's imagination, he seems to have the same kind of dark taste. If you have an interest in morbid things, you should read this. You might like it, not to mention the fact that everybody loves this book, as I do. It's in Tim Burton's dark style, and perfectly fits what it is in the rhyming and the illustrations. "The Gashlycrumb Tinies" is a pretty quirky title to call this book. I wish there were more books like this and "Oyster Boy." I guess this is what Edward Gorey just wanted to call it, and coincidentially, it's seems right.

The Science of Energy : A Cultural History of Energy Physics in Victorian Britain - book cover picture

Crosbie Smith charts the rise of the concept of energy through the 19th century to its installation as the most important concept in science. His analysis is probably designed to upset some in that he frequently gives evidence that progress in science is as much to do with power-politics as it is to do with new and important scientific results. But most experienced scientists will know that, sadly, this analysis is accurate. Crosbie's analysis is detailed and stimulating because he is not afraid to put forward potentially controversial ideas. The book focuses on the endeavours of a North British group of scientists including Maxwell, Joule, William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) and Tait. It is strongly recommended for anyone interested in the history of thermodynamics.

The South Beach Diet : The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss - book cover picture

I been trying exercise and diet programs for years with very little success. Before South Beach, the best I could do was about 5 pounds after months of hard work.
I've been using the South Beach guidelines for not quite two weeks now, and I've lost 8 pounds. The meal plans in the book would be fairly time consuming to follow, so I don't. I do follow the what-to-eat and what-to-avoid list - that was very easy to do.

Flintlock Trail has made a Western fan out of me!


Book title: Flintlock Trail
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Flintlock Trail - book cover picture

Jacques Maxwell's father was a Louisiana plantation owner, his mother half-Cajun, half-Creole slave. Jacques is a man who broke the bonds of slavery and set out to make his way in the world. His journey takes him from New Orleans; to love and ultimately heartbreak as he fights along side of Jean Lafitte in the war of 1812; to St. Louis; and finally into the untamed American territory, where he finds the love of a beautiful Crow woman, Dancing Water. Is it desire and love he sees in her eyes, or is it a mask of betrayal? Flintlock Trail is a marvelous book by veteran writer John Legg. Legg has the ability to capture the sights and sounds of a time gone by. His characters are three dimensional and fully come into their own, carrying the reader along on their journey. John Legg is a writer who manages to strike sparks in Flintlock. Whether he writes as John Legg, or Will McLennan, Mr. Legg's books are on my must buy list.

Binding: Paperback
The Story About Ping - book cover picture

Ping has about it a studied innocence. Yes, a paradox. But NOT a paradox as well, which encapsulates its heuristic paradoxy in a nullity of versimilitude.Its follow up volume, "A Tale of Traceroute", is less successful. Its plot is predictable, and despite some star turns, it fails to live up to the clarity of vision present by the original.The final volume, "A Nonce on Netstat", is, of course, obscene and therefore of high moral rectaltude.

The White Mountains is a action packed work of art!!


Book title: White Mountains
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
White Mountains - book cover picture

The White Mountains, a book with suspense, action, and a great plot, is the book you must read. With many problems the characters face, and having to deal with the skyscraping towers of steel, the tripods, this book is one with alot of suspense, you basically think you are one of the characters. John Christopher avidly describes everything. The descriptions are like paintings in the form of words. When all is well and everything is okay, the real adventure just begins. Yes this is the beginning of the beginning, the next two books The City of Gold and Lead and The Pool of Fire continue the adventure, with more suspense, mystery and enigmas. This Trilogy is one you can read over and over!

The story of Indiana

Indiana (Portrait of America) - book cover picture

Ever wonder what a "Hoosier" really is? This book will tell you a lot about that and so much else.The "Portrait of America" series is a wonderful introduction for pre-teens to the 50 states and to the places and events that shaped the history of the United States. This "Indiana" installment is particularly good. The book is broken down into sections like "History", "Culture", "Economy" etc., and each section is thoughtfully written and edited. The "History" section is especially good and is very inclusive. This book, as well as the entire "Portrait of America" series, will prove to be a valuable teaching tool to all primary school educators.

Why hasn't this book been made into a Mini-Series?


Book title: Galveston
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Galveston - book cover picture

I have just read this book for the 4th time in 20 years. It's a book I often go back and re-read, which is very rare for me. It's intriguing, with true to life characters, mystery, history, and just a plain old good story. If you see it at a used book store or garage sale, grab it. Everyone I lend it to loves it. The story, one of my favorite genres, is about 3 women whose lives are linked and how they intertwine. There's also a history of how Galveston lost it's position as the major Texas port to the upstart town of Houston. The great storm of 1900 and the Great Fire are also players in this book. I wish I knew if this author has written anything else (can't tell for sure from Amazon's information). If she hasn't, too bad for us readers. However, I don't know how she could top this one. It's an historical fiction/romance/mystery/gothic tale all wrapped into one. Highly recommended!!
