Other Powers : The Age of Suffrage, Spiritualism, and the Scandalous Victoria Woodhull - book cover picture

Goldsmith presents an exhaustingly thorough review of a portion of recent American history that rarely makes it into our history classes. The feminism, social and familial experimentation, religious revival, and other dimensions of this era are the foundations of our present-day experience, and we need to know about it. The book is extremely detailed and sometimes it is a little hard to keep in mind all the characters (and I MEAN "characters!") who stroll in and out of the various chapters. But no fiction-writer could possibly dream up such a real-life soap opera that has defined our contemporary lives, and Goldsmith makes this incredibly real circus accessible to us.

Kiss and Tango : Looking for Love in Buenos Aires - book cover picture

This is a fun, entertaining and enlightening read for anyone. I was born in Argentina and I learned a lot about tango that I didn't know before. She does a wonderful job of describing Argentine culture, and describing Spanish words and foods in easy to follow terms. Since this is basically an autobiography, it makes the book that much better, because you know its not made up. She experienced all of this. I don't like to read, and I could have read this in 3-4 days (which is record-breaking for me) if I wanted, but I liked it so much that I wanted to delay ending the book so I could enjoy it that much longer. Read it. You won't regret it.

We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda - book cover picture

This book book provides a very comprehensive background to the genocides in Rwanda. I am not someone who was familiar with the historical and political underpinnings of the killings,, nor of African political history. I now feel that I have the foundation for building a meaningful understanding. I highly recommend this book. It is reivetting and informative. As an Amerian lawyer, it helped me gain an insight into the legal and political underpinings of Rwanda's recent history, and America's complicity and the West's complicity in the genocide.

The King Beyond the Gate Rules!

Rating: 5/5

The King Beyond the Gate (Drenai Tales, Book 2) - book cover picture

I first picked up this book because of the unusual (But very cool) cover. INside was an adventure that I did not expect. Instead of usuing young sword swinging warriors in their prime, the author chose instead to bring the so thought long-gone warriors out of retirement and give us a sweeping tale of enormous stature.
To be sure, this is not a book for very young readers, some of the parts are a little gory, and there is also some adult oriented romance. However, I very much enjoyed much of this story.
My favorite part is when one of Tenaka's companions is trying to whoo the daughter of one of the leader of the risitence forces. Because he is good at climbing, he climbs up the wall of the building he's staying at late at night hoping not to be seen. However, someone does see him and wakes up the entire building, so they're all commenting on his progress while the girl is laughing her head off.
This is a great book and one I highly recommend to any die-hard fantasy readers.

Stone has worked his magic once again

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

How does Stone do it? In this book, he has taken a decent plot about a man attempting to sail around the world and filled it with so much philosophical reflection and relationship analysis that it becomes absolutely unforgettable. Anne is remarkably well-written, with honest human emotions and flaws, and Owen and Strickland both serve as great examples of various extremes of the human character. I particularly loved the aspects of the book dealing with Owen's relationship with his daughter and Anne's relationship with her father. While Outerbridge Reach is undeniably disturbing, it is an incredible tale that deserves to be read over and over.

The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I thought this book was great! I loved the characters. You can picture what they are doing and where they are, all through out the book. From the moment I picked the book up, I could not put it back down. I read way into the morning hours. I couldn't wait to see what was to come next. The journeys seem absolutely lifelike. I can't wait to get the next book in the series "The Two Towers". I know it will be just as appealing.

One of my favorite short stories

The Lottery : And Other Stories - book cover picture

No suspense tale has ever impressed me as the Lottery did; I mean, what can be more innocent than a small town lottery? But then the author gives it a great twist when she turns it into a horrible, inhumane tradition. Just for the originality of the idea I give it two stars, and the other three are for being so well written, it's just chilling. By the way, I also saw the movie starring Keri Russell, which is OK, but of course, not even comparable to the quality of the actual tale.

My mother confiscated this book when I was 12 years old!

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

Yes! I came across her old copy and started reading it. Apparently she thought some of the concepts were too "adult" for a 12 year old. All I could remember of the book was the first chapter, when Adela de Northwode tells Katherine she has eyes "like a rabbit's fur" and "near as large as a sheep's". When I came across the book again in my high school library, it became my constant companion and a refuge from the "terrible" teen years. I still have the copy I acquired then - now a very sad paperback indeed.If you enjoy historical romance, with more than a touch of authenticity, READ this book. For detail, it is way ahead of the competitors in this genre. Poor old Hugh Swynford - what a way to go!

Financial Peace: Restoring Financial Hope to You and Your Family - book cover picture

I sat down to read this book with some anxiety. Finances sometimes are very scary, not knowing where your next dollar comes from. Well, Mr. Ramsey has been through it all. I took some peace in that, but as I read the book I found it harder and harder to put it down. I finished it last night and am now excited to tackle my finances. Yes, there is a light at the end of the long dark tunnel of debt, Mr. Ramsey helped me to find it and then focus on it. Thank you!
