Francine Prose Writes Like an Angel (Not Blue)


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

Francine Prose is an exquisite satirist who manages to capture an age with her books. She does it, not by the tedious Updike method of spot-the pop-culture-reference, but by translating the zeitgeist onto the page so accurately that you wonder whether she was eavesdropping on your recent conversations. That is why her books will be readable in 100 years, long after Updike's last works have been recycled into garbage bags. It is fashionable in some circles to conclude that Ms. Prose is a conservative because of her willingness to expose the lunacy of feminism and political correctness and has written not unflatteringly about religion. That is not quite right. She is something far more rare, wonderful and important than a mere polemicist. She is an artist with a spot-on ear for the lunacy of the age. If she mocks targets on the left these days more than the right, that says more about the left than about Ms. Prose. Blue Angel is another triumph.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

Yes, it was darker. The evil with which Harry was forced to contend left me shuddering in the final pages. The characters returned home from another year at Hogwarts at the end of the novel in much more subdued tones than before as they became aware of the wickedness in their world awaiting us all in the next installment. That being said, there was still much to smile about in this novel (to help you breath in amongst the darker moments) I enjoyed the new creatures Hagrid shared with the students, the latest Defense against the Dark Arts teacher, and the antics of the already well-known faculty and students of Hogwarts. I was especially pleased with the numerous examples of the emergence of Harry Potter as a teenager with convictions about doing what is "right instead of what is easy" and as a young man of character. Another job well done!

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man - book cover picture

Hey, folks, let's face it...there are a LOT of one-star reviews of this book by people who didn't read it...I haven't bothered to to leave a one-star review of Farenheit 9/11 because I haven't seen it, and to do so would be intellectually dishonest. Notice how that doesn't seem to bother Moore's fans...they have quite a role model in this regard. Let me lay it all out on the line...if Michael Moore truly believes that George Bush only invaded Afghanistan to lay down an oil pipeline, that he is in bed with the bin Laden family, etc., etc., then he is not only an idiot, but dangerously paranoid as well. And if you believe it, or give this millionaire "man of the people" your money...well, your loss. Me, I have bought this book, I devoured every word of it, and I only wish it were longer. Money well spent.

I bought this book because I thought the sypnosis sounded interesting. I'm not the type to finish reading a book in a few hours, I like to take my time with it. But with this book, I couldn't put it down!! It is extremely funny and very real. I sometimes felt that I was the only woman left who is sometimes insecure about my weight and apperance but when I read Bridget Jones' Diary I realized that I'm by far the only one!! Whenever I have a bad day I always pick up this book, the funny situations always makes me smile. Read this book, I recommend it to anyone!!

A wonderful collection of morbidly funny cartoons


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

Edward Gorey was a true artist. I am a big fan of engraving-like illustrations that uses fine line shading (as one can see from some of my other favorites that I have reviewed (Sendak & Crumb). Gorey was a master of this technique,

A great artist and story teller whose tastes were somwhat, absurd, morbid and definitely not PC.

Here is a collection of some of his most famous work including my favorite "The Doubtful Guest".

Some of Gorey's work is very much like some of the parlor games popular in Victorian times. They at times cause us to laugh at things that we usually don't laugh at. In essence they truly fit tthe definition of macabre.

Funny, some times naughty and sometimes enough to give you the "willies". His work is always done with a great amount of artistic detail.

Highly recommended.

Katie.Com: My Story - book cover picture

Katie Tarbox's story of seduction and betrayal by an internet pedophile is a real page-turner. As a young adult I often worry about the people I meet on the internet, but then think "something couldn't happen to me." However, Katie.com shows us that there are Katies and Franks everywhere. I have told my mother, father, sisters, friends, and boyfriend to read this book because it so accurately portrays the ordeals that teenagers face in our society. Katie Tarbox is a true gem with wisdom and insight far beyond her years.

One Hungry Monster: A Counting Book in Rhyme - book cover picture

My boys (now 3 & 4) love this book so much, I am buying a 2nd copy b/c the 1st is so worn out! This book is fun, imaginative, & very catchy. My husband & I know it by heart we've read it so much. It's one of those you never get tired of. Don't be leery of the "monsters"- these are friendly little creatures in this book!
My favorite line in the book is "...drooling at commercials for sauerkraut & beans..". LOL, ick, but what a hoot! Get this for your child.

The High King (Pyrdain Chronicles) - book cover picture

I honestly think that this has to be one of the best books everwritten. I have read and reread this series over and over, but I stillcry every time I come to the ending of The High King. This book has so totally touched my life in ways I would not of thought a book could. Not since C.S. Lewis has a series caused me to think so much. Everyone should get a chance to visit Pyrdain at least once in thier life.

Excellent To The Core


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

If you've read Tully and like it,then you'll definitely cherish this lovely book by Paullina Simons. I like the way she gets her readers so emotionally involved with the characters. These youngsters in Red Leaves, Kristina, Constance, Albert and Jim felt like my family, or they could have been my children for that matter. I felt especially close to Kristina, the main character as I felt her pain and her cold lonliness. With a cleverly crafted detective storyline, it has the capacity to keep you up all night long until you've turned the last page. After you've turned that last page, you can't get those characters out of your head. If you haven't bought it yet........get it.......it's worth every penny. Thanks Ms Simons

Simply the very best

The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL - book cover picture

This is the best T-SQL book around. I have them all. Everything you'd want in a T-SQL book is here. The book is very concentrated, so don't be surprised if you have to work through an example to really understand sometimes, but have no fear, it will eventually make sense. The things I like the most about this book are: 1. It uses the standard "demo" databases that ship with SQL Server (no need to create your own) 2. There's a boatload of sample code (several hundred SQL scripts) 3. The sample scripts are self-contained (you don't have to go back three chapters and create a table so that you can test a query). I'm glad I found this book. It was exactly what I was looking for.
