The Dante Club : A Novel - book cover picture

Can I just say ---- Wow! "The Dante Club" is a perfect summer read for literature lovers: it's light enough to allow for rabid page turning but with more substance and intelligence than the standard best seller. The post-Civil War world of 1865 Boston is brought to vivid life, the characters are a delight, and you can just tell that Pearl is having great fun putting his plot together. The novel takes itself seriously enough to keep us engrossed but not so seriously that it forgets to be a joy.If you liked "The Alienist," you'll probably like "The Dante Club." And no worries if you lack knowledge about Dante or his "Divine Comedy." I'd never read it, but Pearl does a fine job of making his novel accessible to Dante fans as well as novices.This is one of those books that I actually forced myself to stop reading at times because I didn't want to finish it too quickly. As it is, I am sad that it's over.Grade: A+

Ranting Again - book cover picture

To call this book hilarious is equivalent to telling Alanis Morrisette that she needs to be just a bit more filled with rage. Few comedians can use intelligent banter with their monologues, without reverting back to f*** jokes. Even fewer can include those jokes and make it funny. For the latter, Miller is the Einstien of the art. I look forward to reading his rants with continual enthusiasm. I even find his adept use of metaphor rubbing off on me (to the point of claiming that '...to call the justice department a circus is to insult bearded ladies & trapeze artists everywhere') Both the first and second editions of his rants are brilliant commentaries on where we are and how we got here. If there is a complaint, it's that the books aren't long enough and there are only two of them.

Where the Heart Is: A Novel - book cover picture

When I first saw the previews to this movie, I knew that I wanted to go and see it but I never got around to it. I generally tend to read the book before the movie so I thought that I would go ahead and give it a try. What luck! After requesting the book at my library, and waiting 2 months, I finally got it and I sure was glad that I did. I just completed reading it and I just begain today, once I started I couldent put it down. Even though the characters names and the places mentioned in the book seem silly, there is a heartwarming story to be told. I guarantee if you read this book you will feel that you are a part of the story not just a reader, you become involved and you can actually picture the characters! This author is definatly one of my top picks for anyone looking for a good book. Try it...you wont be disappointed.

The Truth Shall Set You Free: A Memoir - book cover picture

The Truth Shall Set You Free is sure to touch many lives of gay Christians and couples that find themselves in the mold that our society has created. This compelling story is an example of true Christianity. The book has prompted and challenged the growth of my own life and the life of my former wife. Love does prevail all. I can not even count how many others I have given the book to read. It now seems as if it is constantly on loan. A truely touching story of truth, acceptance and unconditional love!

The Testament (John Grishham) - book cover picture

Is there anything our favorite legal "eagle" can't do? The only way it could have been any more realistic was if it was written in Latin. (Relax, it's not!)It's another fast paced thriller that takes you through all the trials (get it?) and tribulations of our messy law system, but wraps it up neatly in the end. And what an ending it is! You'll never guess it either! The only part I wasn't entirely sure of was the symbolism of the young female law clerk, but sometimes his books can be read on so many levels, it's hard to keep track.All in all a great offering from a great novelist. The best parts call to mind the workings of a young Turow or Patterson. He's almost enough to make you like lawyers. Just kidding! (That's a joke - the just kidding part.)

The best introduction to Evolution vs. Creation

Evolution vs. Creationism : An Introduction - book cover picture

Scott's book is probably the best on the creation/evolution dispute available at the moment which is accessible to students. It carefully addresses an audience which does not have a great deal of background knowledge of the subject.? People who are already deeply involved in the creation/evolution wars might find some of its material, particularly its characterizations of the nature of science, overly simplistic.? But that should be no concern.? Cutting some corners is unavoidable in any basic text.? The book is ideal for its market.? Many, such as myself, who have been teaching on the subject have lamented the lack of a good introduction for beginning students.? This is exactly what we need, and it fills an important gap in the available material.

The Golden One : A Novel of Suspense - book cover picture

I had been pretty dissapointed in Lord of The Silent; I thought that all the interesting loose ends had been tied up at the end of the book. However, the Golden One brings the focus back on our favorite heroine, Amelia Peabody. The plot was delightfully complex and kept me on the edge of my seat. Even with Ramses and Nefret married, the book still had some tension, though I liked the series better before they were married. The book also did not tie up every single problem so we can all expect that the next Amelia Peabody mystery will be as interesting or better. However, I found Sethos' turn for the good a little unrealistic and I wished there was more from the rest of the family. This series is great for anyone who likes good mysteries or has an interest in Egyptology. Elizabeth Peters is a highly competant author who knows her subject and her Amelia Peabdody series is a pleasure to read.

Dr. Atkins' Health Revolution : How Complementary Medicine can Extend Your Life - book cover picture

This is the best diet ever! My husband was 290lbs and going up., he's about 6' so it didn't look too bad, but he and I knew. Especially around the middle he had a very big stomach and was constantly out of breath, we would go out to eat and he would eat all the rolls on the table., He heard about the diet, and within about 6 mths, went to 200 lbs, but decided to gain a few back, so now 2 years later he holds steady at 220, he has never felt better, is very happy, and you don't have to stay off carbs forever, I also lost weight and sometimes we eat carbs, I think you learn to eat better, and when you do introduce carbs back into your diet, you are more aware of how many of them you are eating. We now have salad and vegtables every day,with our protein meal, fish, chicken, or meat and our weight has held even, Everyone I know has lost on it and improved their health and way of eating. Thanks Dr. Atkins!
