Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (Harper Perennial P.S. Edition) - book cover picture

Reading this book has helped solidify a feeling that has been manifesting itself for a long time. I once traveled to Australia and was dismayed about the prevelance of American fast food chains. Looking for foreign culture is difficult when the closest restaurant to your apartment is a McDonald's. Fast Food Nation simply and eloquently presents the disgusting cultural homogenization that America has become subject to. Mr. Schlosser's graphic descriptions of the Meatpacking Industry are overshadowed only by the parasitic nature of Fast Food chains and their ever-expadanding empires. A testament to social awarness, Fast Food Nation is an eye-opening account of good intentions gone awry and a culture that is dumbly unaware of its own internal corruption.

The Secret Language of Eating Disorders : How You Can Understand and Work to Cure Anorexia and Bulimia (Vintage) - book cover picture

I only wish that the medical community was more accepting of Peggy Claude-Pierre and her method of treatment. Victims of eating disorders who have been in and out of traditional hospital programs for years on end have finally found relief and help at the Montreux Clinic. If it saves just one child, isn't that proof that it works? I think it is a shame that people are so skeptical of her methods. All it takes is an open mind to see that force-feeding and punishment of non-eating is NOT the way to help a mentally an physically sick child get better. I think this is an excellent book and would recommend it to anyone, particularly parents struggling with an eating-disordered child. There is hope out there.

Okay..so my previous review was written before I had finished the book! I still feel strongly about the author's lack of e-mail format knowledge but my goodness the book is awesome! I LOVE it! I'm so in love with John it's crazy! Mel actually drove me crazy being so mad at him for so long, but I'm not going to say anything else cause I don't like when people give things away in books! But anyway..seriously, not a waste of money! Go buy this book!!!

The Principles of Mathematics - book cover picture

He doesn't do much theorem proving, but he tackles
head on all the basic problem of mathematics that were known
a hundred years ago. It was how well he did everything
that makes this still a must read if you love mathematics.
There is actually only one equation in his book that I can think of:
and it is of a Clifford geometry measure! This man was a mathematician's
mathematician and a metamathematics master in the language of
philosophy as well! The pages are falling out and I still
go to this and Sommerville when I want inspiration or understanding of really hard issues.

One of his best!

The Marriage of Sticks - book cover picture

There is a bitter sweet surreal quality about this book, that is often found in Jonathan Carroll's work that I find incredibly addictive. This novel offers glimpses into the selfishness of our world and also the fear that drives that me-me-meness. The magic of caring for another person to the point of rising above this emotional epidemic of our time shines as well as the price exacted by the wonder of it. Its a terrifying, wonderful piece of work...I only wish it were longer.

I think this book is quite real.

The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

Though many of you think this is dribble-or smut-or un-couth- or what ever, you all have different words. i found that this book is very real-even now. There are very few teenager's and young adults who cannot relate to this novel. Perhaps, you could call them, oh, "uptight stiffs with no sense of humour." Now perhaps I am wrong. However-most people who "wonder" why libraries keep these books, and why kids read them (as one critic put it) those are normally the people who 'ban and burn'. Now, I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I think it is a must read and that it touches into the 'human teenager' as I prefer to put it.

The Return of the Shadow: The History of The Lord of the Rings, Part One (The History of Middle-Earth, Vol. 6) - book cover picture

Of the thrilling and informative History of Middle-Earth series, this is perhaps the most interesting part. Normal Tolkien fans will get the rare chance to see how the germ of an idea can explode into the most complex cosmology ever created. Although it may seem boring, as it is not a novel per se, it is an insightful analysis of a very beloved book. The Lord of the Rings was initially conceived as a sequel to the Hobbit, growing into something incomparably more vast. We see Bingo in the character of Frodo, the name Frodo applied to another character. Aragorn is named Trotter and the idea emerges that he might be a long lost Hobbit who has had many experiences on the road. Somehow, with many footnotes and comments in the margin, we see the evolution of these ideas into what we know today as LOTR. Fascinating and useful for the Tolkien scholar, the devoted Tolkien reader, or even an aspiring writer.

Fire Arrow: The Second Song of Eirren - book cover picture

THIS BOOK IS GREAT! I for one, am very critical about books. It has to be perfect for me to love it and this one is. It has more action than the first one, Hero's Song, and it has a very little bit of romance. Not enough to be disgusting, but a subtle hint if you look closely. Our old heros, Brie, Collun, Sillien, return, along with new ones. It is more of Brie's adventure this time. It's not exactly a cliffhanger, but there can obviously be more to come. I hope Ms. Pattou writes the third book soon!

A MUST READ, CLASSIC CRICHTON


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

This was a wonderful book and brought out the best of Crichtons tallents. As i began reading it, i wasen't sucked right into it as most of Crichtons novels seem to do to me, but once i got to about say page 100, there was no stopping me. I liked how the book relayed the fact the sexual harrassment casses can go both ways and ARE NOT just the female vs. the male all the time. Crichton addressed these issues w/ his typical skill and precision.
If you are a Crichton fan or love suspence novels this is a must read!!!!

Flowers in the Attic - book cover picture

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS BOOK. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS THE UGLIEST BOOK I EVER SAW BECAUSE I JUDGED IT BY IT'S COVER. I WAS SO WRONG! I PITIED THOSE FOUR CHILDREN AND I FELT THE PAIN AND RESENTMENT AS IF IT HAPPENED TO ME. WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRIS AND CATHERINE WAS TRULY NOT THEIR FAULTS. I BLAME THEIR MOTHER. I GOT THIS BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS ONE YEAR AND DIDM'T TOUCH IT UNTIL LIKE 8 MONTHS LATER. I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. THIS IS THE FIRST AMONGST THE MANY V.C. ANDREWS BOOKS THAT I'VE READ. I STARTED READING THEM WHEN I WAS 12. I READ THE WHOLE DOOLLGANGER SERIES EXCEPT THE PRE-SEQUEL. YOU SHOULD DEFINITLEY READ THIS BOOK. THERE ARE MORE TWISTS THAN A ROLLER COASTER!
