God's Fool : The Life of Francis of Assisi - book cover picture

God's Fool brings depth and color to one of the Church's most beloved Saints. Julien Green does so much more than just describe the events of Francis's life. He describes the daily life of his medieval family, friends and neighbors. This, in turn, really helped me feel just how much Francis was sacrificing by abandoning a future of knighthood, nobility and wealth. I could feel the anguish in his mother's heart, the anger of his father's fist and the confusion in his brother's mind. This illustration of one of the most remarkable spiritual journeys since the original apostles, can be contageous. The desire to run to the nearest Franciscan monastery is almost overwhelming, even for a traditional Protestant

Conspiracy in Death (In Death (Paperback)) - book cover picture

It was my luck to find the "In Death" series while surfing my beloved Amazon. I purchased all eight books and started to "devour" them upon receiving. My! They are certainly delicious! The one thing that bothers me all the time is what should Eve and Roarke look like (Jamie Lee Curtis ? and ?) I love all the characters, good guys as well as the bad guys (they are bad for some understandable reasons). And don't worry, I trust Trueheart will have his re-appearance in next books just as Charles Monroe did. Look forward to the "Loyalty" and hopefully many many more to come.

He finally tells the king and queen when Eilonwy is missing!They find her bring her back and they both leave Mona to return to Dallben again. I agree with the about this book because everything Was said clearly in the story and all the details lead to the main idea to make the story good.

This book was recommended to me by a friend. As I soon as I finished, I got Ridley's previous two novels. I couldn't get enough. More than just a great story, Ridley has a unique style of writing and a great wit. I feel very lucky to have "discovered" a new writer early in his career. The only bad thing is now I have to wait for his next novel. If it's half as good as this one, the wait will be well worth it!

I can't recommend this book more highly. Unlike the other related titles you list, this is goes way beyond the racial stereotype tearkerking genre to reach the stature of a major literary work. Stout writes beautifully and with depth and enormous compassion. This is an unsentimental and moving book, which I urge others to read and pass on to their friends. Forget that sniping review from Sydney!

The Runner's Handbook : The Classic Fitness G for begng Intermediate Runners rev Edition (A Penguin handbook) - book cover picture

I loved this book! Everything, I mean everything, you ever wanted to know about running is here. I just ran the NYC Marathon on 11-4-01 thanks to the Coach Glover (author) training program, and I finished in 4:49. I went from clueless non-runner to marathoner using this book. Following this program, I went into the marathon confident that I would do well and I would even enjoy running the marathon. This, coming from someone who used to despise running. Regarding the book, I especially enjoyed Glover's breezy and humerous writing style. It's not just for marathoning, so buy it even if you are just looking to get some fitness advice. You will get off to the right start and learn to love running. I am now ready for Glover's book for competitive running

A New Terry McMillan Fan For Life

Day Late and a Dollar Short - book cover picture

A Day Late and A Dollar Short was my first McMillan read, and I must say that I was not disappointed! I could not put this book down. I even stayed up until 6 am to read the conclusion, which moved me to tears. I consider myself an avid reader, but I have NEVER cried while reading a book in my life. McMillan created characters who I really began to care about or even loathe. Each character was strongly developed. Definitely the best book I have read in a long time. I will be reading Ms. McMillan's previous novels now. Hopefully they are as good, or even better than this one.

A few novels moved me thus. Narrated by a child, the book moves in a slow, but sure pace through the life and times of 1930s Alabama town, the treacheries and hypocrisies of grown up world becoming evident to a child. The narrative "kills you softly", till tears sparkle in your eyes, for the novel is written in a very meaningful style, in a way where events, ideas and words touch your heart, stir you into thinking, and on the surface the author seems to be going around telling a very simple story, and that too in plain English, straightforward sentences. Recommended reading for everyone!

It is unfortunate that the original printing of this novel was not tremendously successful, despite some excellent reviews (most notably in Business Week, of all places). The characters are original (especially Wilbur), the story is well crafted, beautifully written, and full of humor, and the ending is perfect.No doubt someone (hopefully Covino himself) is penning a script for a film version.When are you going to write another one, Mike?

I highly recommend this book to anyone planning to redecorate. I wanted to colorwash my bedroom and looked at dozens of books that contained hopelessly complicated directions requiring obscure ingredients. This book is clear, readable, contains simple directions, and uses easy to obtain ingredients. I have no artistic ability and still got great results. My interior decorator is very impressed and is ordering her own copy of the book!
