Facts galore in this interesting piece of work

Isaac Asimov's Book of Facts - book cover picture

Isaac Asimov, someone typically associatied with science fiction novels, compiled this tremendous book of facts that will amaze you. If you are planning on scoring big on "Who wants to be a millionaire?" than this is the book for you. This compilation of useless facts is grouped by subject and can be read from cover to cover, or is a useful source when writing a paper and looking for that one interesting attention getter that will make your paper seem much better than it really is. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that does a lot of writing, since it does contain so many interesting things about so many subjects. Enjoy!

With a distinct Ibbotson style, this book is quite enjoyable

Which Witch? - book cover picture

After reading "SECRET OF PLATFORM 13" this summer, I thought that I would continue, by reading "Which Witch?" Though some may disagree with me, I think that it was a very sweet book. It was not"David Copperfield," but was anyone really expecting Charles Dickens? This story had believable characters, an interesting plot and good (if not predictable) turns of events. Ibbotson is on a roll of good books, and they are her first! So, congratulations Ms. Ibbotson for the marvelous stories.

Into the Wild - book cover picture

Joseph Campbell wrote of the "Hero's quest," that difficult individual journey risking life for authenticity and an inner power that allowed the "hero," finally, to return to life with that special inner strength awarded only to those with the powerful, demanding spirit that drove them to seek out these life-threatening and life-granting challenges. The most painful part of this story, if Krakaeur has it right, is that this young man had licked his demons, had completed the hero's quest, and was finally ready to return, to complete the hero's journey back home. Then to die of food poisoning from a food his "scientific" book told him was edible --- it is frightening and disturbing because we're so used to thinking, romantically, that in only we'll endure and persevere, we'll triumph. We're uncomfortable seeing that even in these dramatic lives, the final power in life is Chance.

The Pillars of the Earth - book cover picture

This was my first encounter with Ken Follett's writing, and I was highly impressed. I'm no expert on 12th century English life, but the details in the story left me with the feeling that Follett really knew his stuff. I had no problem picturing every scene, the characters were well-rounded and interesting, and the ending was satisfying. The story spans several years, and deals with civil war, famine, poverty, and political struggles in both the secular and religious government. The conflicts are viewed from widely varied characters, most notably a builder, an outlaw, various nobles, and a monk. I have read some comments that the sex and fighting scenes were too drawn out, but based upon the abridged audio version, I do not agree.

Eerie and compelling book

Resuscitation of a Hanged Man - book cover picture

A proper summary is not really possible here. You could say its about a lonely, bewildered character investigating some sort of paramilitary conspiracy in a seaside town full of transvestites. It's the voice that is really unique, though. The voice and the aching sense of bewilderment that hovers over everything are what sustain the interest, and create a superb eerie atmosphere. There are some belly-laughs too. This is the fourth Denis Johnson I've read, and would recommend it along with Jesus Son, the Name of the World and the Stars at Noon.

Neuromancer - book cover picture

When I read the book about a year ago, I found myself a little frustrated and confused by the "cyberpunk" lingo and dense plot... But a year later, it is this book which I keep remembering, with its amazingly imaginative descriptions of what life may someday be like. Some of the settings Gibson has dreamt up in this book are so vividly written, and in such a beautiful way, you will remember them forever

From Start to Finish this series is top notch. It is, by far, the best single story Mr. King has written, finally completed. I remember finishing one bk, & waiting so impatiently for the next one that I would re-read The Series several times. The characters became some of my best friends, and their enemies became mine as well.

This story will go down in history as one of the great epics of mankind.

Wish I could give this book 100 stars! I finished it last night and after reading all the reviews here, I knew some surprise was coming, and when it did, I was one of the people who gasped in astonishment! I would never dream of ruining it, but it was a shock to me; I hadn't figured it out! I'd rather just let a book happen rather than concentrate on figuring it out anyway!

This was just a wonderful story of love and hope and promises.......I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a feel-good romance, don't hesitate to pick up this book!! I'm picking up another Nicholas Sparks book TODAY!

The Nanny Diaries: A Novel - book cover picture

I selected this book after reading a memoir with a very difficult subject matter. I didn't expect this to be a great novel. I just wanted something light to read. I even checked it out of the library instead of purchasing it at the bookstore. The first few pages with their wonderful wit immediately drew me in. I was hooked and could not put it down. My husband and daughter kept trying to keep me away from it, but I just couldn't stop reading. I grew feelings for Nanny and the little boy. I would find myself angry, then sad, then laughing out loud. I didn't want it to end. It's a wonderful book. I have recommended it to all of my friends and haven't received bad feedback yet. Enjoy!

Basic & Clinical Pharmacology (LANGE Basic Science) - book cover picture

As an equity analyst on the pharmaceuticals sector, I find this book very useful. All the drugs are clearly explained (profile, side effects, interactions,...) and differences between different drug types are easy to understand. Moreover, it is also possible to see what type of improvements could be done on specific classes and the advantages and disadvantages of the new drugs developped by the pharma companies (that are not yet included in the book).
