Jesus I Never Knew Study Guide, The - book cover picture

Yancey does a good job about allowing us to paint a picture of Jesus in our eyes, and not that of Hollywood. Too often we draw conclusions based upon an image that is handed to us through advertising or visual media. The book takes you through 14 different lessons that help you experience Jesus. Afterall, being a Christian is not about the church, not about hype, not about anything else but your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Finnegans Wake (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

This book is not to be read literally, rather it should be read aloud -- "sung" as if it were a piece of music. And like a piece of music, I find myself lazily following the words whilst occasionally getting a flash of images. One wonders how a musician, not of instrument or voice but of words, would interprete this piece.I know there are audio book versions available, but they're abridged. Besides, they're probably read as if the text were prose not poetry -- like a student reciting an historical document. I eagerly await the release of an unabridge version in the vein of the complete and unabridged Ring of the Nibelungs by Wagner (with James Levine and the Metropolitan Opera).

The God of Small Things - book cover picture

"God of Small Things" has a dark, gloomy feel (for those of you who have not read it, this is NOT a "feel good" book), but it does serve to tell the story well. Roy's use of broken sentences and phrases takes some time to get used to, however, this does create a sort of tempo or rhythm that acheives the functionality of description while creating the mood of a child's mind. Having briefly lived in Kerala, I will say that Roy's descriptions are perfect. The content and storyline are very, very controversial in such a conservative society, that criticism MUST be expected, especially from those who are from Kerala. For this reason, I appreciate Roy's courage in such a venture, especially because of the obstruction and backlash she undoubtedly faced. Also, to those readers who think she should have painted a prettier picture of India/Kerala, I really do think her intention was to write a book, not sell an impression of a country!

The Long Hard Road Out of Hell - book cover picture

This is a really interesting book about the life of Marilyn Manson. You follow him through adventures in satanism, paganism, sex, drugs, music, even his grandfathers basement. I read this as a big fan of Manson, but it was really an amazing read dispite the fact that i already have a great deal of respect for him. he's an amazing musician, and also a great writer. His life is full of twists and turns, and i dont think i can say anything bad about the book. I couldnt put it down. Its an addictive read, and i hafta suggest it to anyone that isnt easiy perturbed by fairly graphic journeys through drugs and sex

I love this book! A friend of mine told me to read it, so I decided to trie. And when I started to read I couldn't stop. Some books are like that, and the clan of the cave bear is one of them.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (If You Give...) - book cover picture

The Book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, by Felicia Bond, was wonderful! It's a great book for kids. The illustrations are very nice (including the mouse's overalls), and the content is fun and imaginative. It is about the cycle of a mouse's wants, and what might happen if you give it to him, leading through a boy's day. I would recommed this book to all adults with children, because they will love it!

The Night Listener - book cover picture

When I bought The Night Listener yesterday I didn't really know what to expect having never read any of Mr. Maupin's books before. Having finished the novel I must say that there are several things that I enjoyed, particularly the uncertainty of where the plot was headed. If you are looking for an elegantly written novel that explores the familiar themes of love and trust but leaves most of the familiar cliches behind then read The Night Listener.

It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life - book cover picture

This was an outstanding book. You don't have to like sports to enjoy this book it's also a book about life, and how to deal with adversity. Lance talks about his cancer treatments, you really get a feel for what he went through and how close he came to dying. He talks about his mom and how much of an inspiration she is to him. The part of the book where he talks about his comeback after surgery was awesome. All the hard work and training leading up to it was unbelievable. It is a fine book that will teach you about never giving up in life, and will help you to understand the affects of cancer on those who experience it.

Tales of the City (Tales of the City Series, V. 1) - book cover picture

When I look back on the 300+ books I've read in the past 10 years, no list of irresistable, up-all-hours reads could be complete without the "Tales of the City" series, starting with volume one. (There are six in all, and I loved all of them.) I'll never forget the image it created when I first read it; the back porches and neighborly spirit of Barbary Lane, the apartment unit that centers the lives of its disparate characters: landlady Anna Madrigal, who is carrying a secret of "Crying Game" like propotions, ... hottie Michael Tolliver, future journalist Mary Ann Singleton (a role perfectly fleshed out by Laura Linney in the TV movies), lovable slug Brian, and Mona Ramsay, who might be seen as the fictional sister-in-spirit of Courtney Love. Their episodical adventures are fancifal and hilarious and the spirit of love that ties them together will ring true to anyone who ever created a second family of friends in an adopted hometown.

Very Good Baroque Opera!

Book title: Dido and Aeneas in Full Score

Binding: Paperback
Dido and Aeneas in Full Score - book cover picture

This very short Baroque opera composed by Purcell, is probably the best English baroque opera. I contains the most beautiful lament "When I am laid in the earth" is the most beautiful opera air. Also, the final chorus ending in Gm is very beautiful. The score contains the instrumentation, the table of contents, and critical notes on the piece. The editor actually put in the Harpsichord part instead of having the Basso line with Figured Bass so that is an advantage. The Opera takes little over an hour, and the score is full of Basso Continuo arias. buy this score if you are a baroque lover!
