Dictionary of Art And Artists, The Penguin : Seventh Edition (Dictionary, Penguin) - book cover picture

Excellent reference for art history research, art criticism, or for deciphering someone else's writing about art.Examples of entries: academy, encaustic wax, Lembruck, Suprematism. So there are techniques, movements, institutions, and individual artists... all explained concisely but with essential dates and details. Saves lots of time when you need to refer to some movement or influencing artist but don't want to get caught up in an enormous amount of data. Western art only. (You won't find Buddha, Sumi-e, etc).

I liked this book alot


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

I was assigned to read this is in 6th grade and was assigned again this year. I was immediately sucked into the story of headstrong Daniel, scholarly Joel, kind Thacia and fearful Leah. Daniel's thoughts and personality are described so convincingly and desriptively that even in his most foolish moments you find yourself pitying and understanding him. The story takes place around 31 A.D., while Jesus is preaching. A boy sworn to war and vengence finds himself drawn to the gentle teacher and soon reluctantly becomes the lone provider for his sister, Leah. She hasn't left the house in the last ten years and screams and cowers at the sight of neighbors. This story is excellent, it has adventure, action, betrayal, friendship,and even some faint hints of romance. If you haven't read this book, read it!

The White Fox Chronicles (White Fox Chronicles) - book cover picture

White Fox Chronicles is about a 14 yr old kid who escapes from a CCR concentration camp in the year 2056. Cody will then return to blow up the camp. After Cody escapes to an Army base he goes on journeys blowing up other concentration camps and weaponry warehouses. Cody then earns the reputation of the White Fox for his brains and bravery. Some things I liked about the book was the detail it went into. Like the part where Cody was walking through the desert it explained how blistering the heat was. The part I didn't like was the length of the story I wish it would go on farther or have a sequel. If you want to know more about the story read to learn more about Cody's friends.

Definitely Worth Reading.

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Guardian Of Honor - book cover picture

In this well written fantasy novel; Alexa Fitzwalter, a young woman who'd battled monsters in some form or another her whole life, finds herself summoned to Lladrana, another world, to do it again. This time it could end up costing her her very life.

Alex has to go up against politics, harsh manipulation and a language barrier before she can even get to the interpersonal relations of every day life. She must learn her true strength and find her place if she ever hopes to help these people who so badly need her.

Over the course of her journey she finds herself, finds a home and her other half to become whole, to help save innocent lives from the encroaching evil.

Ms. Owens spins a wonderful tale full of adventure, action, and awareness. Her characters are likeable and realistic with thier own unique flavours and faults. There is humour to be found in the pages as well as touching moments.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an excellent piece of fiction.

Must the Maiden Die (Seneca Falls Historical Mysteries) - book cover picture

The Civil War is about to get started, and a man is found murdered in Seneca Falls. It turns out that he was connected to illegal gun-running; guns are being bought from England, smuggled thru the port of Oswego, New York, thence to Seneca Falls and eventually to the about-to-secede southern states. A young girl whose father had sold her into indentured servitude to the murdered man is the prime (but wrong) suspect in his murder. Glynis (of course) figures out who really did the murder, and exonerates the maiden. There is much more in this novel, mystery and suspense and adventure enough to make it a really enjoyable read, and as a bonus, you learn a bit about American history. Highly recommended!

Atlas Shrugged : 35th Anniversary Edition - book cover picture

This book has changed my way of thinking more than any other book I have read. The ideas that Ms Rand espouses through her characters (Dagny, Hank, Francisco, and John Galt) resound thunderously within me, and should do the same for any intellegent person disillusioned with the modern world. I have read this book several times and cannot decide between two opposing opinions about the work as a novel. (The ideas stand alone.) On the one hand, her characters are all a bit two-dimensional, and the scenes melodramatic. This sometimes makes it hard to swallow. On the other, those characteristics make it a truly Romantic work and a perfect novel on the order of the Brothers Karamozov. You must read this book.

George Washington: The Forge of Experience 1732 - 1775 - Volume I (Force of Experience, 1732-1775) - book cover picture

I also own Freeman's solid and much recommended biography of Washington (which I haven't read yet). This biography looks more comprehensive but I certainly enjoyed reading Flexner's view on Washington. I think he succeeded in bringing to life this complicated person. The text is well-documented but also very interesting to read. It is more than a lot of facts about Washington; it is a very good interpretation of his life and work. I think this is what a biography should be: based on the facts and with references to notes and liteature but with an original interpretation.

Life- Changing! Read it young!

The Book of Laughter and Forgetting - book cover picture

This book totally blew my mind when I first read it, maybe more than any other book since. Kundera has a way of looking at the world that is totally unique and pretty enlightening, and although I didn't understand everything he said at the time, I feel like his sharing that view with readers is an incredible gift. None of his other books grasp it quite as completely (although several other people I've talked to also say that the first one of his they read was the best, whatever it was). Read it, read it young, and let its ideas float around in your mind forever- you'll be a more complex thinker, I guarantee it. (I'm not sure how much my guarantee means to you, but it means a lot to me)

Superb behind the scenes book and a real new edition


Book title: Creating Babylon 5
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Creating Babylon 5 - book cover picture

All Babylon 5 fans hear to this: you will really understand how our favourite series was set up, designed and came to life. The book is detailed and written for those who don't have a clue of any behind-the-scenes jargon. It really puts all fans inside the TV series, makes them a part of the building process. Also, if any of the readers has already bought the previous edition, please do spare the money and buy this really new edi- tion: it includes the complete Season 4 episode list and more (new) photos of the Season 4 episodes, plus real updates in the data. It comes to wonder then how the same duo (author, publisher) didn't thought of a real new edition of "The A-Z Guide to Babylon 5" but they reprinted the previous book as a ... "new edition".

Winesburg, Ohio (Bantam Classic) - book cover picture

I am only 17 years old, but I've read a lot of books. I want to tell everybody out there that Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson is, by far, the best I've read so far. We were required to read it for an advanced english class and every student in the class was "wowed" by the depth of Anderson's book. I strongly recomend this book for any high school, or college, class; or book club. I feel that the only way to read this book is in a group so each chapter can be discussed and studied. This is not a book for those looking for an easy-reader. This is for those of you who will catch the small things (Who's a grotesque? Who's not? Are they twisted apples? Note the motifs of hands, light and dark, adventure. In which chapters are there allusion to greek myths? To The Bible?) I strongly recomend this book to anyone who has lost faith in the thoughfullness of writers today. The book will wow you, but only if you can figure it out.
