Heinlein-The Visionary Genius

Starship Troopers - book cover picture

What intrigued me most of this book, was Heinleins ability to look into future. To see what was on the horizon of technology today. The book was published in 1955, yet he was talking about technology yet to be invented at the time like Global Position Satellites (GPS), Heads Up Display (HUD)and a host of other things. If he wrote this book in the 50's, he must have been thinking of this in the 40's, if not the 30's. I wonder what other brilliant ideas were locked into the recesses of his mind that never made it to paper.

Ms. Shreve writes with a simple yet elegant grace rich in emotion that draws you in from the first page. Say what you will about predictability, this story grabbed me from the beginning and left me pondering the bigger question of how well do you really know someone you have lived with for years. Her moving and visual prose allows you to experience every emotion---love, betrayal, doubt along with her characters. Having read three of her others novels, I eagerly look forward to Ms. Shreve's next work.

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (Harper Perennial P.S. Edition) - book cover picture

Not a diatribe against profit or capitalism, despite the attack from the probable beltway conservative think tank member who is so blinded by his own agenda that he won't let evidence (oh, sorry -- anecdote) get in the way, this book asks people to think about the consequences of what they eat. You may not pay now, but you'll pay later, if you ignore these warnings.
From an unrepentant meat eater.

In Confessions of a Philosopher Bryan Magee shows his gift for explaining complex ideas with great clarity and in beautiful prose. I have rarely encountered a work of non-fiction which it is so enjoyable and profitable to re-read. Having read the book through once I now find I can open it at any page and just start reading again with the greatest pleasure and interest. This is truly one of my all-time great books. Buy it.

Suddenly You - book cover picture

The latest Lisa Kleypas does not disappoint. When Amanda Briars turns 30, she is determined to make love to a man, something she has yet to experience. Along comes gorgeous publishing tycoon Jack Devlin, the sexy half-Irish ... son of a English lord. Sparks fly, and the two begin a tumultuous on and off relationship. This book was a pleasure to read, extremely sensual and tastefully written. Although the ending was somewhat cliched, the book as a whole was a wonderful treat and a great escape.

Slumber Party (Point Paperback) - book cover picture

It was the first of his books I read and I think it was for a school reading assignment and I could not put it down. I was so involved in the story that even when company came I was rude and kept reading. Once again he ties everything in and made me want a sequel just so I could hear further of the characters. I have read it twice and hope to buy it when I have the chance and I see it in the store. Hoping, everytime I walk into the bookstore to see a sequel hasn't done me much good but I hope, someday to see a follow-up because I daresay that it was truly the best book I have read. I can't say enough about it

Eye opening drama for ya. Page after page

Abide with Me - book cover picture

I was hooked on E.Lynn Harris from jump street. I read everyone of his books in 3-4 days. Abide With Me was supreme...I couldn't put it down most of the time. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a serious DRAMA! That Yancey was too much and got exactly what she deserved...NOTHING. How could she and Ava be so coldhearted toward Nicole. That Basil Henderson is a true piece of work full of himself and BULL too.I look forward to reading about him constantly, and think he needs a book dedicated totally to him. Seeing Raymond struggle with issues of commitment, love, and truth was heartwarming. I found myself being his and Nicole's personal cheerleader. I'm glad they became friends again and that both are happy. Ava's hatred toward Nicole was so real and typical in showbiz. Blaming everyone and everything for her non-success.I feel like I'm in the story at times. E.Lynn knows how to capture his audience and keep us........It's soooo abiding..

The Firm (John Grishham) - book cover picture

The firm was the first Novel I read by Grisham. It started out capturing my attention that i read the first 200 pages at a go. Then towards the end, when they were running away from the Fibbies and the Mob got a bit confusing on where they were But I liked the way it ended, on a boat heading to an island with 9 Mil. in the Bank..:-)))I Liked the way he took over when he knew that there was no way out of the firm and started dictating his terms to the FBI..Loved how he Jerked Terrance around. Overall, it is one of the best Novels I had ever read and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Law..

WAY different but good!!

Book title: Companions of the Night

Companions of the Night - book cover picture

This book was way different than any vampire book I had ever read. It blew my mind. Kerri was so different from any of the other girls in other vampire books. She was careless (about what she said) and she was AFRAID, which to me seems rare in most books. The end (which I won't give away) pretty much shocked me. This book was truely amazing AND beautiful. I recomend it along with "The Silver Kiss", "Blood and Chocolate" both by Annette Curtis Klause, "Look For Me By Moonlight" by Mary Downing Hahn, and Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's books.
