I'll Be Seeing You - book cover picture

I'll Be Seeing You was the first book I read by Lurlene. I ordered it out of my Scolastic Book Club in the 6th grade. I am now in 9th grade and have read it at least 10 times. Even though I know how the story goes I go back and read it again and again. If you are a hopeless Romantic like me this is the perfect book for you. It made me laugh, cry, and even both at the same time. I advise anyone who reads this to go out and buy this book ASAP and read it and you will see what I mean.

A nice roadmap for the inquisitive mind

Mediterranean Winter: The Pleasures of History and Landscape in Tunisia, Sicily, Dalmatia, and Greece - book cover picture

This historical essay by Kaplan which flows along a geographic journey from North Africa, to Sicily, Italy, Croatia, and Greece is a great read for anyone interested in the history of the Mediterranean. The book is part travelogue, part history, and part philosophy. The key test I have with this type of writing is whether the book leaves the reader with a nice roadmap for further in-depth exploration of the subject matter or some nice sideroads for further exploration...and this book gets five stars because it excels at just that. For example, I may be showing my ignorance but although I was aware of Lamb, and Byron, I had never heard of Fermor; although having read Norwich on Venice, I was ignorant of the Norman invasion of Sicily, etc. There is probably something like that for every reader who is not an expert in mediterranen history. It's easy to read, flows nicely, and worth one's time.

Fantastic

The Player of Games - book cover picture

This is in the top ten sci. fi. books I've ever read and I've read a LOT of award winning sci. fi.. It was hard to put down at times. Banks uses some unique and fascinating concepts in his worlds set thousands of years in the future. The concept of totally sentient (and feeling) drones, houses, ships, etc., is so bizarre that it takes a little while to grasp, though it's so likely when you consider it. The story is remarkably captivating and the settings and science are both riviting. In many ways, the alien empire's negative characteristics are very similar to the negative aspects of earth's population currently. It makes you realize just how far we need to go before we are a truly civilized society, and that indeed in thousands or even hundreds of years, our societies will be considered barbaric. Great book.

HarperCollins College Outline Introduction to Calculus (Harpercollins College Outline) - book cover picture

I'm no dummy, but I had a lot of trouble understanding Calculus (had to withdraw 2 times). The teachers couldn't or wouldn't explain, the class text was obscure, but this book explained the basics in a straightforward style leaving you to have to guess very little. Of all the *many* Calc books I tried, this was *easily* the best. Thanks, Ms. Dykes and Harper Collins for making Calculus comprehensible. (PS. I got an "A.")

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - book cover picture

I've taken to quoting the author, who says (and I'm paraphrasing) '...if morality represents how the world should be, economics represents how it really is.' This point is important, because if you don't suspend your sense of moral propriety, you may miss the bigger underlying truths of this book, which is that human nature is in fact nothing more than human habit, and habits result from the incentives that exist in our environment. What is encouraging about this is that great sociopolitical change can be achieved most simply by finding powerful incentives, and sometimes those powerful incentives can be very small and very simple. Reading this book will open your eyes whether you're a card carrying left-wing radical, or a dyed-in-the-wool right-wing stalwart.

Candy - book cover picture

I came across this book when i found out my partner was using heroin. it helped me to understand what being a junkie is all about. before reading this book i thought that junkies chose to be junkies but after reading candy i found my opinion changed. Candy will help the reader understand that being a heroin junkie is more like a desease. they have NO choice. Luke Davis is an excellent writer. i have a poetry book of his also wich is not dissapionting. Candy changed my life forever. it made me learn and i am a true believer that once you learn something you can't unlearn it. this truely is the closest you'll ever read about heroin in Australia in a novel! Read it once and i'll be surprised if you don't want to read it again or pass it on to friends ect. a must have book for the open minded. if you have any questions or the same thoughts or other recomendations please email me twenty_22_two@yahoo.com

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson - book cover picture

Anyone thinking of picking this book up needs to do so right away. You know how sometimes when you read a book jacket and it says "laugh out loud funny" but it's not? Well this one actually made me laugh out loud all throughout it. The author needs to make a sequel because I can't wait to read more about Georgia. Also, I'm 28 so don't let the young adult label phase you. This book will make people of any age crack up.

This book lets others know how cancer victoms feel.


Book title: No Time to Cry
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
No Time to Cry - book cover picture

For a long time, I never knew much about cancer. Well, I guess I knew what it was, but not until after reading this book was I really sure how it felt. Dawn was a very courageous young girl. I doubt I would be able to deal with all she had to if I had cancer. I have not read the other books about Dawn, but I think I will now. A firend recommended that I read this. I felt every ounce of pain Dawn felt throughout the entire book. I like books that are so moving that you could not put them down. That is how this one was for me. Each night while I lay in bed after reading a chapter in the book, I wondered what was next for Dawn in her battle with cancer. If Dawn were here, I would tell that she is certainly the most bravest person I know. I am glad that I now know how cancer victoms feel because many of us don't understand half of what they have to go through. I think everyone should read this book!

The Shadow Rising (The Wheel of Time, Book 4) - book cover picture

The Shadow Rising followed the previous books very well. It kept with the same themes, while adding many new twists and conflicts at the same time to create yet another spellbinding novel to keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page. As in all of Jordan's books, the characters and conflicts are so realistically placed into the fantasy world that it seems real, and makes you feel as if you were there. The book enchants even the less imaginative among us, and to try and figure out the complex "Game of the Houses" or any of the Forsaken's twisted plans can stretch any mind. Every little detail matters in these books, and everything is incoorporated together very masterfully.
