A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3) - book cover picture

Mr. Martin is indeed a fantastic author. In my time reading fantasy, I have had the opportunity to enjoy the writing of many great writers and I must say that I would put George R.R. Martin at the top of the list. I have read some criticisms of Martin's willingness to "kill off" major characters, yes it is depressing, but it is the fact that you know none of the characters is safe that makes the storyline so suspenseful. Martin's characters have so much depth, evil characters have redeeming qualities and the heroic characters have flaws. If I were to recommend one fantasy series to introduce someone to the genre it would be "A Song of Ice and Fire".

I read this book aloud to my eighth grade English class as part of our World War II unit. I think it would be safe to say that every student was moved by Elie's experience. This is a wonderful book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about the holocaust. This book is especially appropriate for younger readers (13-15 years old) because the author himself was only 14 when he was in the concentration camps.

Arrested Development: Pop Culture and the Erosion of Adulthood - book cover picture

'Arrested Development' is a brilliant critique of the relationship between popular culture and today's society. Politicians with little to offer in the way of vision, turn to popular culture to try and look for a dynamism that they haven't got.Calcutt's book exposes the superficiality of this embrace and the divisive consequences it has for today's society. The author also writes with great honesty about his own forays into pop culture and all of it's follies which many of us have fallen for in our youth.The book puts forward the case for adulthood in an environment where it appears more desirable to remain a Peter Pan character espousing throwaway 'popstar' type attitudes rather than develop the critical faculties and reflective capabilities that come with maturity.

The Simpsons : A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family - book cover picture

This is the best Simpsons book ever created. Any true Simpsons fan should get it. The best parts of the book include: Hello, Moe's Tavern..., Homer says, "D'oh", Homer says, "Mmm...", couch gags, signs seen around Springfield, an Itchy and Scratchy filmography, it gives you the words to the songs, and it tells you about every character in the book. By the way, I found the blackboard gags very amusing.

Jenna Boller, a sixteen-year-old girl, is the star employee at her branch of Gladstone's Shoes located in Chicago. Jenna is faced with some extremely difficult circumstances - her mother is a nurse who works the night shift at an area hospital, her father, who is divorced, is an alcoholic - and shows up periodically, her sister yearns for affection, particularly from her father, and her grandmother is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. After repeatedly asking her mother for permission to accept a summer job driving the elderly Madeline Gladstone (the president of Gladstone's shoes) on a cross-country trip from Chicago to Texas, Jenna's mother reluctantly agrees. Jenna is surprised to learn that Mrs. Gladstone has problems, too - an aching hip and an aching heart. Mrs. Gladstone's "power-hungry" son, Elden, is attempting to take over the company in favor of a major merger. This is a wonderful novel!!!!

Rating: 5/5

Running Wild - book cover picture

Amidst the sterile routines of suburban England, Ballard tells a short fable about the loving your children too much. The post-mortem objective style of the massacre's investigator adds to the unsettling tone of this novel. Like Ballard's other works (I've read Crash, War Fever, and the Atrocity Exhibition) he explores the subterranean barbarities latent in our denatured, desensitized urban landscape. This novel is hardly one to advocate nurturing our future generations, since the blank-eyed authoritarianism of suburban child nurturing is blamed for the pscychopathic massacre. Loving a child, doesn't mean that the child is free. And the children, suffocated by parental love, suburbia, and technocracy has two routes: suicide (like 'The Virgin Suicides') or murder. Ballard shows that children are far from innocent: little bundles of joy who are ticking time bombs with artificial smiles and revenge fantasies. A must read for parents and high schoolers everywhere.

I have a stack of organizational books! REALLY! This is the one that helped me most- I think it's because a lot of books out there were written by organized people and this book shows a disorganized person how to start swimming. It at least gave me a starting point. If you need support you can also find the Official SHE's in touch discussion board on the webforums.com website. You will make new friends and find new challengers to help you aspire to a clean house!

The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet: The Lifelong Solution to Yo-Yo Dieting - book cover picture

I have now been on the Hellers' diet for 19 weeks and have lost 14 pounds. I'm thrilled! I'd like to lose about 10 more, but if I don't I'll be happy to stay where I am. I can count on one hand the number of times I have "cheated," because the desire to do so is gone. It's no longer a diet for me; it's a new way of eating. I cannot imagine going back to eating the way I used to, because I feel so much better now. Thank you, Drs. Heller!

Brain Storm : A Novel - book cover picture

Richard Dooling has written the best novel about lawyers that I have ever read or ever hope to read. It is not only hilarious but it is wise and wicked as well, with brilliantly drawn characters and a plot with more twists than a snake in a conniption fit. This is the funniest book I have read this year and the best-written. He makes Don DeLillo and that crowd look like a bunch of posturing hacks.
