Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood : A Novel - book cover picture

The author takes you for a joy ride in a time many may remember, but in a place only those from the south may know. You're not only a spectator; you become a part of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, and then begins the ride of your life. This book stirred up a myriad of vivid emotions. Rebecca Wells starts you out slow and easy, like a hot summer day in the bayou, and then slowly and steadily takes you upward to a pinnacle of emotions. She gently sets you back down to earth, where you take a deep breath and think about the Ya Ya's in your own life.... This book will not let you remain passive. Whether you like it or not, I can guarantee something will stir within you as you follow Sidda through her childhood that brought her to the fork in the road she finds herself now. It's about love and hate, mothers and fathers and children, and how they're all inter-twined with each other. An excellent read!

Invisible Monsters - book cover picture

First I saw the movie Fight Club. Loved it. The I read the novel. Loved it even more. Just had to buy the rest of his books, definitely one of the smartest moves I've ever done. Invisible Monsters is the third novel by Chuck Palahniuk and, I'm sorry to say, his weakest. Or so I thought till I came closer and closer to the end. It takes these mindbending twists and turns which leave you begging for more.Palahniuk writes with this indescribable, stream of consciousness-like flow which is just a joy to experience. I started reading it out loud to myself and I was filled with awe and jealousy. Why can't I write like this?! I've actually typed down a few of the many wonderful quotes onto the back of one of my business cards, to keep in my wallet when I need a good laugh.This novel is a hilarious, excrutiatingly tragic, sick and twisted soap opera rollercoaster ride!

A scientific presentation by Krsna to Arjuna about bhakti


Book title: Bhagavad-Gita As It Is
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Bhagavad-Gita As It Is - book cover picture

The Bhagavad-gita As It Is has revolutionized the lives of many millions of people around the world and is printed in over 60 different languages. This book talks about the Supreme Lord Krsna (isvara), time (kala), nature (prakrti), activities (karma), and us (jiva). An amazing presentation- a model of life and the universe completely different from the athiestic version taught in modern day schools. And just see by the results- how many people gave up their lives and modern education to live the teachings found in this book! I was so amazed I quit my job and spent 2 years rendering the entire book into multimedia CDROM format. Whatever Srila Prabhupada writes has the magical touch of bhakti. No silly syntax or semantical errors can hide the radiant bhakti flowing out from his books! Please save yourself from the miseries of material existence and read the Gita AS IT IS.

The Computer Music Tutorial - book cover picture

If your looking for a definite guide to computer music and synthesis, this is the book. There is no other book like it. The writting style is clear and concise. The subject at hand is never confused and made as simple as possible without fluffing on the details.
Although it is a technical book with plenty of calculus functions it can easily be read by the non-technical as the math is more a by-product of the explaination than the focus.
If your very new to computer music and synthesis I might get this book and another called ~ Sound, Synthesis & Sampling by Martin Russ. Between the two there is very little to know before you can start focusing an one particular synthesis method.

The best way to learn Tcl/Tk, and a great reference


Book title: Tcl and the Tk Toolkit
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Tcl and the Tk Toolkit - book cover picture

Although more detailed books like Welch's 'Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk' are very useful, Ousterhout's original book is still the best way to learn the language. His style is clear and concise, and he covers the core of the language with good examples and thorough explanatory text.The layout is clean and easy to read, without any space wasted on fancy graphics or eye-candy. Instead, you get clear tables laying out what happens, or listing the commands in a certain functionality area. For example, page 122 has a table I've gone back to many times that lists the different return values from catch.Even though I have and use other Tcl books, when I just want to check a point of syntax or verify functionality, this is the one I go to. It's an invaluable book for a Tcl/Tk developer.

Fantastic epic

The Pillars of the Earth - book cover picture

This is an attempt on historical fiction by Ken Follet. And the result could not be better. The story evolves around the construction of a Gothic cathedral in 12th century England. It is a big book, over 1000 pages in some editions. It contains the usual elements of other Follet's books, great adventure, fast action, plenty of bad guys, it is a little heavy on the sex and violence scenes, as other people have pointed out. But all is combined with extensive research and flawless execution, all plots and subplots (and there are many) are neatly tied up at the end. It will keep you hooked till the last page.

So, give yourself a trip to the 12th century, you will love it!

Mahfouz risked his life for this book and almost lost it


Book title: Children of the Alley : A Novel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Children of the Alley : A Novel - book cover picture

In 1993 Mahfouz was stabbed by a fundementalist for writing this book. If you read it you will see that it sets everyone under one spiritual saga. By everyone I mean all of the middle-eastren religons. Nonetheless it can be read as a novel about a family's journey throughout time starting with one family and stemming out into many conflicting families. It really makes you think of Adam as everyone's base root, the grandfather that humanity shares, weither you believe in that or not is not the point, because wherever we came from we all came from the same place. But Mahfouz goes deeper into why families split up, where does one family breake off into many families, and why. Don't try to take this into mind though, and don't go into it looking for arguments, if you find yourself doing that just put it down untill you've fallen in love with one from the enemy, whoever you are. This was a story not so much about love, but in its service.

It Changed My Life - Literally

Simple Abundance:  A Daybook of Comfort and Joy - book cover picture

The passages for the month of August set into motion a lifelong desire to create music. I first read the words in August of 1996, and started piano lessons in September. In a span of less than three years I've gone from 'Chopsticks' to Mozart Piano Sonatas and have discovered the joy of creating music with my own two hands. I can honestly say that none of this would have happened without the impetus of Sarah Ban Breathnach's question, 'If Not Now, Then When?'

Worthwhile

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Reservation Road - book cover picture

I too just finished reading Reservation Road. My reaction was different from the other readers reporting here. I did feel fully, deeply invested; I think this writer has a gift for creating real characters. The details he chooses are uncanny and feel psychologically right. My problem with this novel is the frequency of the POV changes. Manipulative and intrusive. Every time the character voice changes, the reader is reminded that this is just a book. I'm ready with my willing suspension of disbelief, but how many times do I have to offer it up? Mr. Schwartz defeats his own effort to sustain intensity. I too await more fiction by this author, but caution him against disruptive stylistic devices that interfere with the reader's emotional experience of his characters and plot, which are wonderfully well realized.
