Hallowed Ground : A Walk at Gettysburg (Crown Journeys) - book cover picture

If you are planning a trip to Gettysburg (by far the best Civil War Park), you should pick this book up first. Read the book before you leave, then bring it along and follow the directions to make the most of your visit. McPherson is one of the best Civil War historians and has spent quite a bit of time studying the battle and visiting the park. The book walks you through the park, pointing out what was happening at each point along the way. I wish I had had the book with me when I toured the park.

The best early history of September 11th...

Inside 9-11: What Really Happened - book cover picture

This book, by the editors of the German magazine Der Spiegel, offers the best early history of the tragic events that occurred on September 11. In addition to portraying the attacks as they happened, the authors do a good job of detailing the actions of the terrorists/criminals while they were planning in Germany before they embarked on their dastardly mission. While certainly more in-depth books on September 11 will appear in the future as more details are learned and a different perspective is gained, this is the best book on the subject currently available.

Hack outwrites Clancy, Coonts and Marcinko!

Book title: The Price of Honor
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Price of Honor - book cover picture

Having read all of the books by Col. Hackworth, Stephen Coonts, and most of the Tom Clancy and Richard Marcinko efforts, I feel Col. Hackworth has topped them all with "The Price of Honor". His vivid description and prose can only come from someone that has been there and done that. Weaving the past with the current events, makes this a very intriquing and soul searching novel. It also helps us question the current status of Our Military and their Political Leadership. Caleb Tarleton (Capt. USAR 1959-1967)

A believable story with a difficult moral conflict

Clark's Law (Babylon 5, Book 4) - book cover picture

"Clark's Law" was not only a good story because it was true to the characters, but the central plot was interesting. I like stories that make me think and "Clark's Law" made me think. Like so many episodes there was no clear right and wrong. I knew who I disliked, but not always who I liked. The later scenes between Franklin and Sheridan were particularly excellent. Sometimes there are no easy answers.

A great romance and mystery

N: A Novel - book cover picture

Louis Edwards has made a great piece of work with N, a Romantic Mystery. This book is wonderful for anyone who is looking for the story of an ambutious woman who tries to report a murder in the newspaper that she publishes, but finds that she falls for her lead source. During her investigation of the murder, she begins to suspect her new love and even her brother. I love this book and have added it to my collection. The story keeps you guessing right up to the end, when she discovers who really committed the murder.

All Souls : A Family Story from Southie (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

I picked up this book because I was intriqued by the cover and the story behind it. I had no idea I was so naive about things going on in the U.S. Before I read this book I hadn't even heard the term "Southie". I really never stopped to think that there are enclaves like the projects in South Boston where life is totally different than what I think of as the "norm". This story could have been set overseas somewhere because that's how foreign it sounded. This is an interesting and informative story. It certainly was news to me. I had no idea spots like Southie existed.

Alien Taste (Ukiah Oregon Novels) - book cover picture

When I picked this book up I will admit to having been hooked by the cover, and the back blurb on content....but when I began to read this wonderfully unusual book...I fell in love with the character Ukiah and his mentor Max. The plot keeps you glued to the pages...the supporting characters are fantastic...I would love to see this become a series....and look forward to more from Wen Spencer. I recommend this book to all who love a mix of science fiction, fantasy and suspense.

Neither Tragedy or Hope is Temporary

Book title: Interpreter of Maladies: Stories of Bengal, Boston and Beyond
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Interpreter of Maladies: Stories of Bengal, Boston and Beyond - book cover picture

Somehow or another both tradgedy and hope coexist in our world much like storms and sunshine. We always know that there will be a calm after the storm and we always know that there will be another storm after the calm. I can't help but love this book, especially "A Temporary Matter", because for all it's sickeningly real tradgedy it gives the very vague and uncertain impression of hope and repair; yet another reader might find that hope impossible and yet another - perfectly imminent. Lahiri creates characters that are as open to interpretation as any living human on earth.

Slow read, but worth it

Devil Take The Hindmost : A History Of Financial Speculation - book cover picture

Excellent book about financial speculation. A bit sobering, given the fact that the recent internet bubble burst was not the first of it's kind and probably won't be the last. This book offers as much history of business and commerce as it does speculation. The second half of the book, which focuses mostly on American speculation (railroads, the great depression, etc) is much more entertaining than the first half which explains European speculation and is a little harder to relate to.For anyone serious about being an active participant in any market (stocks, real estate, anything!) this should be a pre-requisite. My favorite quote: "The four most expensive words in the English language are 'This Time It's Different'"
