Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1) - book cover picture

This book is awsome! It is the best book I've ever read! It is packed with so much adventure that if you put it down you just want to pick it back up again. It is very descriptive and full of suspense. It leaves you with unanswered questions that at the last minuet are answered, and they aren't answered in black and white. It is full of surprises and challenges so that when ever a character triumphs greatly he would also lose something. It leaves you sort of hanging at the end of the book but you have got a strong hold. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and suspense.

Hard Eight : A Stephanie Plum Novel (A Stephanie Plum Novel) - book cover picture

The book is just a bit different from previous Stephanie Plum novels. Stephanie has just moved a bit into the darker side (but so has Spielberg in Minority Report). Stephanie Plum fans will enjoy the book, still has the humor and the fun characters you've come to know and love.New readers looking for mystery will enjoy the story and should appreciate the humor which is far different than any other mystery writer.If you are looking for humor and romance with a touch of mystery in the background....read one of the other seven Stephanie Plum books first.

The Gathering Storm - book cover picture

I don't see how anyone can have an intelligent understanding of the history of the 20th century without having read Churchill's "Second World War." It's a gigantic paradox that I suppose dates back to Homer or further that the horrific events of war can have such fascination when told by a master like Sir Winston. It would be hard to name a document to parallel this, however; recounted in such riveting detail by one of the world's great leaders.

Waiting for Godot - book cover picture

Thus far I have seen a number of excellant reviews for this play, and some less than credible ones. If someone has a problem about Beckett's view of humanity's existance then it is only because they are trapped in the very thing that Beckett insults. The man who works the nine to five shift then eats, sleeps, and does it again is the man who beckett implores to open his eyes. he is living a life of existential non-being(almost an oxymoron but not really). This play is not for children. It is not for those with A.D.D. It is not about the civil war. It is not about not being absurd but with being as absurd as life. I'm sorry I'm tired.

A perfect way to start "The Conversation" on atomic war

Book title: The Bomb and the General
Rating: 5/5
Binding: School & Library Binding
The Bomb and the General - book cover picture

This is a gentle first intoduction to the dreaded but inevitable talk in which a parent must reveal the realities of living in an age of nuclear weaponry. The illustrations and text are so superb that they are appropriate for any age, but do a particularly good job of introducing younger children to the dynamics of war. At the same time, the joyful ending makes it highly readable. It's made the top of my gift list.

Jaws - book cover picture

With all this raving maddness about how much jaws the book sucked, I DARE THEM to try and write something better. So the book wasn't completely centered on the shark. SO WHAT! I found the subplots to give the characters a little bit of edge. Near the last third of the book, when everyone falls apart, you can FEEL that tension. And after hooper's untimely death, you really feel the depression hanging in the air, sinking into your mind and heart. It was a really fun book to read. My only quibble was that the characters are so sour toward eachother. They're soooo BITTER. Lighten up Benchely!

Highly humorous

Book title: The Lion's Game
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Lion's Game - book cover picture

A hilarious book based around high action drama. A terrorist is killing people in America. No one is able to find him. The ex-NYPD on the case (now working with the FBI) is determined to apprehend him. The author lightens the blow of seriousness with John's sense of humor. You'll be seriously spellbound one minute and laughing the next. At first, I didn't think I would like The Lion's Game, but quickly changed my mind after the first few pages. An excellent read!

A Different and Powerful Approach to Assessment

Learner-Centered Assessment on College Campuses: Shifting the Focus from Teaching to Learning - book cover picture

Huba and Freed bridge the gap between assessment and student-centered teaching and learning. Throughout the text the authors include reflection questions to trigger thinking and changes in mental models. While the thrust of the book is conceptual, there are many practical suggestions for implementation in areas such as learning outcomes, rubrics, and other related areas of assessment. While compatible with other treatments of assessment, this is a unique perspective.

Middlesex: A Novel - book cover picture

i feel i must voice my opinion anyway. i loved this book. its scope is so wide, yet in reading it, you feel completely connected to the narrator, cal. although each facet of this book is worth mentioning, the standout moment for me was cal's coming of age. it is so gently and painfully portrayed, from the sexual confusion of genitals developing (or not developing) to the excitement of having a first crush. eugenides really plumbs the depths of adolescence with great care and attention to detail, and makes us, whether we want to or not, invested in whatever happens to cal..
but believe me, this is not just a coming of age story. it's merely one side to a thousand fold tale, which unravels page by page and completely enthralls the reader.
