First "page turner" I've read in years

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37) - book cover picture

I'm not easy to please. I'm forcing my way through the #1 Best Seller, "1776," and I am one of the few who think that it is mediocre (if that).

With that said: "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America" is the best book I've read in years, regardless of topic. It is compelling, and funny, and exceptionally well written.

It is the first page-turner I've read in years. I, literally, had a hard time putting it down.

If there was a sixth star, I'd give it...

An A+ Thriller!

Book title: Secret History : A Novel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Secret History : A Novel - book cover picture

I am a highly critical reader, but this book gets an A+ with extra points awarded for well crafted writing and a genius for creating a thriller with an unusual plot! Donna Tartt's style is transporting--her scenes are so real, that they draw the reader into the book--start reading and you'll feel as if you are right there yourself.As I read it brought to mind A Separate Peace, Lord of the Flies, and a bit of Catcher in the Rye. My only suggestion for improvement would have been to edit out about 100 pages--the story wavers on past its climax, and the ending is a bit of an anticlimax in itself. I thought that the author might not have been certain how to bring the story to conclusion.

Another excellent Wyndham

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

I first read this book (or most of it ;-) in high school and must admit, although it was a rather interesting concept, did not find it particularly fun to read. I reread it recently and have to admit that it is a fine piece of science fiction (if you can call it that). Wyndham skillfully handles the religious prejudices of society towards the deviations and their bizarre behavior towards those who do not adhere to the 'true image'. Seems to be a popular book for high school which is unfortunate since so few people who read it at that point in their lives can really appreciate it (and, as we can see in the reviews here, are likely to rate it poorly). Highly recommended.

I not only lost weight, but my cholesterol improved.

Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution - book cover picture

When my doctor told me that "everyone with my cholesterol ratio has a heart attack and half will make the hospital," I became worried and started taking cholesterol medicine. When I heard about this diet, I decided to try it and I took myself off the medicine. My ratio went from 7.1 to 4.8 and I lost 15 pounds. That was two years ago. I have never taken the medicine again. My total cholesterol went from 219 to 168 and the ratio remains the same. I love this diet.

Delightful. Fun for young and not-so-young alike.

The 13 Nights of Halloween - book cover picture

This small picture book keeps me coming back again and again. No matter how many times I look at it, I seem to find something new hidden in the bright, detailed illustrations. The bonus is that the story is also a happy Halloween story, a rariety in itself. These goblins won me over.

P.S. I bought the book for my kids, but I enjoyed it so much, that I keep it high on the shelf so they won't hurt it. If they're really, really good I'll read it to them before bed.

Koontz's #2 novel with best science fiction plot.

Book title: By the Light of the Moon
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
By the Light of the Moon - book cover picture

The first book I read by Koontz was 'Cold Fire' some years ago. Koontz was generally found in the horror section then. I found most of his other novels to have less science fiction elements and stopped reading his books for a while. Now he's more often found in the mainline fiction section. 'Light of the Moon' got my attention with its cover and I was not disappointed! This latest book has just as much science fiction appeal as 'Cold Fire' did! Keep it up Dean, I hope to see some further adventures of the Moolight Guild...

One of the most intelectualy stimulating reads.

Book title: Sick Societies
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Sick Societies - book cover picture

Every now and then I venture outside my chosen
field (systems engineering) and hike into the forest
of "New Possibilities" by going into a section of the
book store I wouldn't usually go into.
While "Sick Societies" was not my first introduction to
anthropology, it was my most exciting by far.
Although Mr. Edgerton is overly defensive of his stance, he
has excelent arguments for abolishing the
"total non-interference" policy adopted by modern
I liturally (pun) could not put this book down.
I read half of it while at the store, the other half
that evening. The plethora of example studies will floor
the reader and at times completely shock.
It's great to know we are still an exciting species.

Excellent start to a fabulous series

Book title: The Book of Three (Prydain Chronicles)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Book of Three (Prydain Chronicles) - book cover picture

This was my first introduction to fantasy, and it remains one of my all-time favorites. It has everything-- thoroughly likeable characters, an exciting plot, honor, and one thing Tolkien and Lewis never included: humor. It can be taken at face value as a great fantasy, but I find it gains more levels the more times I read it. The Welsh mythology as a backdrop is also fascinating as Lloyd Alexander brings it all to life. Try this book-- it has something for everyone.

Highly anticipated & Well Worth the Wait

Book title: The Immortal Highlander
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Immortal Highlander - book cover picture

I have been waiting for Adam's book and it has been worth the wait. I see a lot of people are complaining that Adam was too perfect & the women were too happy. Pleeaasse! Adam was so hot & brilliant, we would expect no less from him than to make everything perfect around him. I love happy endings & if I wanted them to be semi-happy & more realistic, I would bury my nose in reality instead of a fantasy-romance novel. Adam & Gabby fit well together. The book was funny, sexy & creative. I would recommend it to all of her readers.

Different, and amazing

Book title: Blindness
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Blindness - book cover picture

This book is a tough read, and it is important to know that going in. Saramango uses long sentences, long paragraphs, and ignores punctuation (especially quotation marks). There were times when I had to go back and re-read passages because I completely lost who was talking.With all of the difficulty...this is probably the most amazing book I have read in a long time. The story is original. The characters are strong, vibrant, and alive. It made me think about human nature, about our society, and about how shaky civiliation really is. (akin to Lord of the Rings) I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to read something new, and different. The nobel prize Saramango won was well deserved, and if you read this book you will see why.
