Elizabeth and Mary : Cousins, Rivals, Queens - book cover picture

This portrait of two extraordinary women and their era was very well done. The description of the early lives of these two royals was integrated into discussion of how this affected their subsequent decisions; and how those decisions, good and bad, changed the fate of England and Scotland.

The historical accuracy was excellent, and the author was obviously making an effort to treat both Elizabeth and Mary in a balanced fashion. Each Queen had a different view of their royal rights, and chose and handled their supporters in unique manner.

What a Book!!!

Book title: The Confessor
Rating: 5/5

The Confessor - book cover picture

This is my fourth Silva novel, and each one seems to get better than the last. In actuality, I have read the Gabriel Allon series out of sequence, but that has not affected my enjoyment of them.

The Confessor is exciting and well written. Gabriel Allon, an art restorer/Mossad agent is asked to investigate the death of his friend/the son of the former agency chief and finds himself pitted against a powerful secret society of the Catholic Church that is trying to cover up the Church's role in the Holocaust. Although the story is fiction, the premise has basis in fact. The result is a fast moving novel, believable action and a plausible premise that provides the reader with some food for thought.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all four of my Silva novels , but this is the best so far (see my reviews for the others). If you like this one, and I think you will, A Death in Vienna is also excellent.

I loved this book because it was the first book by Johanna Lindsey that I read. I loved it and thought that no other book could top that, until I read her other books and I fell in more love with those. This is a good book, not the best, but a very good one. I loved the setting and all the details. Even though Derek didn't seem that bad, I was disappointed by his attitude, to just marry her off when he was done with her. All in all, I have to say it was a great book. I hope you enjoy it.

The belly of the beast! Freaks! Lemony Snicket! That's all I have to say...............................OK, maybe I could say more. Lemony Snicket hits the mark for a great book....AGAIN. I have to say, they really stick to the story in this series, which pleases me very much. I can 99.9% guarantee the next one will be a hit. Count Olaf is as 'dashing' as ever(aka horrible, smelly, awful, gross, ugly and mean as ever). Very funny, one of the most humorous! And guess what? We're getting closer to learning all of the secrets about V.F.D. *Smiles mysteriously* Seriously, one of the best in the series, but then again, they're ALL the best in the series. *Whines* Can't choose!

Bet Me - book cover picture

It took me forever to find the time to get a healthy start on this book but lo and behold jury duty rolls around and man am I glad it did! This is a great read and a terrific story. I enjoyed reading about a curvy woman who called the shots and was able to step up to the plate when it came down to the wire.

As hopeless of a romantic I am, I was able to identify with Min and the girls very quickly. And the banter between her and Cal trying to convince each other that their very presence disgusted them was right on par with true love. In addition to the witty conversation and the richly detailed scenes, the book moves with a quick pace to keep your interest and move the story along.

This is my first novel that I read by Crusie and I am encouraged to read more. It was a perfect book in a day read and I recommend it for people who can laugh and learn that love is stubborn, maybe more stubborn than we are ourselves.

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Vintage) - book cover picture

This book is not only funny but motivational for anyone in my (and Dave's) age range. He speaks to us in our late 20s and speaks FOR us. In the early ninties, he shares with us some of the things that we all were going through. A time of our early twenties when most of us seemed directionless or not sure what to do with this huge life. He's a do-er, rather than a slacker, as everyone seems to think this generation is. His message to "WAKE UP" has moved me into the direction I have been waiting to go in for years; I have been sleeping for so long: wasting much of my time on nothing tangible, nothing much of any worth. NOW is the time. Now it is time to start doing and stop sitting around for "something". Make something. Do something. And read this book!

The Oliver Wight ABCD Checklist for Operational Excellence - book cover picture

I have been using Oliver Wight checklists as a support for improving company processes for over 11 years, both as a practitioner and as a consultant. This fourth version has a very detailed chapter 5 (corresponding to MRPII / ERP / Supply Chain Management) and reasonably good chapters 1 through 4. "Non-initiated" professionals may find some difficult and may misinterpret some of the questions, but this will improve as they keep on applying the checklist. Not a pleasant reading but definitely worth using it!

The Best Book Ever

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

This book is about a bat named Shade. Shade, his friend Marina and a bat named Chinook have to go to the jungle to save the sun. I loved Sunwing! The way Kenneth Oppel wrote it was amazing. I could easily feel like I was in the book. There was never a boring part in that book. I especially liked the part when Shade and Chinook were in the jungle by themselves. It was like I could feel the heat of the jungle! Kenneth Oppel made me feel like I was a bat soaring with them! He described everything in greys, blacks, shades or brightness because bats are color blind. I definitely thought this is one of the best books ever written! I could never put it down. This book would give both J.K Rowling and J.R.R. Tolkien a good run for their money.

A spectacular and well-researched sequel to THE NINJA!

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

In this second instalment in the Nicholas Linnear chronology, Nicholas is being hunted by Russian agents while he attempts to build up his inherited Tomkin Industries in the competitive Japanese business climate. The reasons for the Russian interest become apparent when a revolutionary new computer chip is developed. Also, what is the secret behind the death of his Oriental lover from years gone by? How is his past linked to the appearance of THE MIKO(sorceress) out to assassinate him? This story contains everything - martial arts action, a spy subplot with Nicholas being hired by a clandestine organisation within the CIA, high-tech James Bond-style gadgetry and explicit sex scenes! The Japanese business climate is also well-researched, more so than other books I've read on the subject(namely Tom Clancy's anti-Japanese stance in DEBT OF HONOUR.). Highly recommended and hard to fault.

Guitar Fretboard Workbook

Book title: Guitar Fretboard Workbook
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Guitar Fretboard Workbook - book cover picture

I think when it comes right down to it, learning all the notes on a guitar fretboard, and their various positions, is a formidable task. The author of this book apparently believes that also ... that is why he has painstakingly developed an outline that is well thought out in order to make this knowledge easier to digest than any other method I have seen. The instruction is clear, in detail, and innovative in its approach. I have only had the book a short time, so I can't "read" the fretboard yet ... but clearly, by following this series of study and excercises, I can see that not only will I have the ability to see all the notes and their positions ... but I will have this knowledge for the rest of my life. And that is worth far more than the modest price.
