Watershed Trilogy 2: Darkenheight (Watershed Trilogy) - book cover picture

A well written book provides a fun and interesting tale of a world divided into three by the power of water. This book was not of the same style of writting as many of the fantasy books of this day and age. For a story of war and destruction, it seemed to have a lighter side to it. The characters and dialogue, especially the farie, were cute and entertaining. However, when Niles needed to the sense of desolation, desparation and defeat were communicated in such a way that the reader feels every emotion the characters do. Overall an excellent and very fun reading.

The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

Even at age 37 I read Salinger's masterpiece at least once a year. It is still as socially relevant if not more than, when it was released a half-century ago. Unfortunately, some people just don't get the total gist of the book. For those who do; it exposes America's true moral character in unsurpassed sartirical splendor. It is the perfect narrative. Economical, yet more than gets it's message across. Read it again if you think that it was just required high school fare. I'm sure now that you've aged a bit, you will enjoy the book more than ever. A work of genius.

Techniques and Principles in Language Teaching (Teaching Techniques in English as a Second Language) - book cover picture

I am an ESL teacher and I teach Methods and Materials of TESOL at the University Level and I am very pleased with this book. It is clearly written and the methods, from the Audio-Lingual Method to Content Based Instruction, are presented in a format that facilitates pre-service and in-service teachers' understanding of the theoretical background of language teaching, and the book provides relevant follow up activities that promote professional growth and allow the learner to apply what they have just learned. My students have given me very positive feedback about the chioce of this as one of the texts that we use, and they all say that they wish to keep the book on the shelves of their professional libraries.I refer to it frequently as both a professional in the feild and as a teacher educator.

The Healing Runes : Tools For The Recovery Of Body, Mind, Heart, & Soul - book cover picture

I can't say enough about this extraordinary book. Somewhere inside, I knew I was sick again, but I was in denial due to years of surgery. My former husband bought me, The Healing Runes, and as he handed it to me, he said, promise me this---if you pick the same stone twice, you 'll go to the doctor. I did, and I DID. I'm alive today due to my husband's gift, his love and friendship, AND THIS AMAZING BOOK, filled with so much love and clarity.

Exciting, Original and Thought-provoking

Thief of Souls - book cover picture

This is not just another mystery novel. This book is about the human experience and what happens when the "black and white" of life gets blurred. I learned a lot about human nature and resiliance, even from the first chapter. This isn't a book that you can really describe because a short synopsis doesn't do it justice. I've lent this book to four friends and all of them had it back to me within a few days because they just couldn't put it down either. We are all now Darian North fans. If it's out of print - go get it - you won't be sorry.

Under the Tuscan Sun (Audio CD) - book cover picture

Frances Mayes brings to her reader not only a detailed description of the world around her, but the magic and life she finds. While reading, I felt as if I could almost smell the gardens, taste the local cuisine, and that if I suddenly appeared on the terrace she would welcome me with open arms. In fact, she does welcome us into her life, sharing an experience that for her was so rich she had to let the world feel a least a piece of her joy. Overall, a fulfilling read, which I highly recommend!

Mac OS 9 Visual Quickstart Guide - book cover picture

I recently bought my first Mac and after many years as a Windows programmer and an Amiga enthusiast before that. Suddenly I was a newbie again. This book helped me get over that very quickly. It's a fast way to get going. The author breaks up each aspect the OS into one or two page bites with enumerated instructions, making it easy to digest and even find things in a hurry. If you determine you are reading some aspect of the OS you already understand, the layout makes it easy to skip to the next part. She also includes lots of tips that add to the basics.There are LOTS of screens shots; usually 3 to 4 per page. The prices is right and they don't include a CD-ROM which so many computer books do. That only inflates the price and rarely adds anything of value.

A Picture of Freedom: The Diary of Clotee, a Slave Girl, Belmont Plantation, 1859 (Dear America) - book cover picture

I teach this book in my seventh grade English class, and it is highly effective in teaching young adults the harsh realities of the American slave experience. They enjoy the book, but more importantly, they get a sense of what it felt like to be a slave. The plot is simple at first, but it has a fantastic ending. You will quickly grow to love many of the characters. It is a quick read, but it is not quickly forgotten.

Cyteen - book cover picture

I had to read this book for a biotechnology/science fiction class at UCLA. Despite the daunting size, Cherryh's book is well worth the effort needed to conquer it. The characters are so well developed that you think you know them. Ari is quite a scary little girl if you think about the implications of her actions..quite a thought provoking book! I would recommend it to any fan of science fiction.
