The Last Shot : City Streets, Basketball Dreams - book cover picture

This was an excellent novel that truly displays the true struggle of young men playing basketball as a means to escape their corrupted society. The author does a great job in using four young men as examples to display the hardships of growing up in the inner-city projects of Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. It brings about current issues raised today in society and brings about awarness to the reader. I strongly recommend this book to everyone because it is important to realize the struggles of not only ourselves but of others living in other communities. Being aware of the struggles out there will help motivate us to succeed, to break down many barriers set upon us and to create change in our society.

GREAT book - took me by surprise!

24 Hours - book cover picture

WOW! While browsing at Barnes and Noble, I read the book jacket and was intrigued. After reading some of the mediocre reviews on this site, I took my time purchasing the book. Took it home and - WOW again! I opened it up and after the first few chapters I was hooked and in the boat. Premise: 24 hour ingenious kidnapping plot This is a suspensful, roller coaster ride! There are 3 different characters (Mom, Dad and little daughter), in different places, encountering different dangers and Greg Iles manages to keep you on your seat through EACH sub-plot. This book is refreshingly unpredictable, has a really perverted, sicko villain, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. What more could you ask for??? You WILL stay up until it is finished. Tomorrow it's back to the bookstore for another Iles book. Did I say WOW?

If you are reading this review, I hope it is for one of two reasons: (1) You are waiting for your copy to arrive in the mail, or (2) You have just finished reading and want to spend some time with others who've loved this book.Otherwise, you are wasting valuable time. Go - order this book! Read this book!The other reviewers have summed up the book nicely. It has a clever premise, beautifully written. It seemed so real! I would LOVE to meet and talk with the author!It is unutterably sweet and sad ... The only book that, months after reading it, still moves me to tears when I think of it.

Gone for Soldiers - book cover picture

For those who have an interest in the American Civil War and in some of the more noted people who became involved in the conflict, will be able to see some of these people at the early stages when all fought on the same side. This "Prequil" to use the term is fitting for this book by Jeff Sharra. Gone For Soilders: A Novel of the Mexican War. Is a very insightful historical fiction. Though the story revolves more around Robert Lee, Jeff Sharra does introduce the reader to an early Sam Grant and James Longstreet. Like his father before him who's book Killer Angels brought to life again the battle of Gettysbugh as seen through the eyes of some of the people found in Gone For Soilders. The characters are well fleshed out and the story moves along well. It should help bring more people to read up on Pre-Civil War America and some of the men whos names are covered in this fine novel.

This was the first book by Rose Tremaine that I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed every page of it! She is an extremely talented writer who brings you right into the time and place of the story and lets you get close to each character, no matter how minor in the story. I love the way she uses different points of view - first person for the King's wife and third person for everyone else. Although I hated to come to the end of the story, I couldn't wait to run out and get another one of her novels!

After going through a difficult loss myself (though certainly not comparable to the author's), I found this book so comforting. Melody's writing style makes you feel like she is sitting across from you, telling you her story while, at the same time, intermingling a lesson that you must learn from her experience. Not only could I relate to her feelings she recounts in the book, but I felt much less lonely. This book gave me the greatest gift -- hope. Thank you so much, Melody.

If Loving You is Wrong - book cover picture

Gregg Olsen's book proved to be compelling and suspenseful. He documented the background of Mary Kay clearly and concisely and brought each one of the supporting players to life in a personable way. Although many would argue that Mary Kay and Vili's relationship was inappropriate, Olsen's writing indicated that it was powerful nonetheless. Olsen portrays how Mary Kay's past can greatly influence her behavior toward her family as well as to Vili. Lastly, Olsen writes in an unbiased fashion thus allowing the reader to make his/her own decisions as to the various events occurring throughout the story.

The workshop/book are great - can't wait for next edition!

Portfolio Design - book cover picture

I am a junior in architecture (IIT) and took the portfolio workshop earlier this year at Illinois Institute of Technology with visiting Professor Linton. I wanted to tell readers that this book and the workshop are exactly what i needed just to get going. Before the workshop, I was really affraid of what to do. I had 'no idea' of how to do my portfolio. Too many ideas maybe. We were pushed to design ten pages in 6 hrs at the workshop. Now I am looking forward to the second edition because I have much more understanding. Professor Linton said he will also add more ideas about computer portfolios to the next edition which will help alot with all my CAD and growing digital experience. This is a good book and a great workshop.
