The Shining (Signet) - book cover picture

Definatly my favorties Stephen King book yet. The description is great, and even the parts when nothing is happening, are well written and interesting to read. King managed to write a book with a great plot, and no loose stings hanging when it was done. Everything fit together like a great big jigsaw puzzle straight out of hell. Oh, and for all those King fans, skip over the movie, and see the six hour mini series instead. It stays true to the book. One things for sure, if you don't LOVE this book, you're loopy!!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

I decided to read this book because I heard it was "all the rage" and that many parents objected to some of the content. Well, I'm a bit older than the recommended age group for this book, but I thought it was COOL and I could hardly put it down. The story does encourage fantasy and imagination, but in the end it's your basic good triumphs over evil. Reality should be that straight forward. There's plenty of good lessons in this book and because it's readable for the adult too, it provides a great opportunity for parents to get at their kids level and connect. I'm going to get Books 2 and 3.

A fantastic insight into the actual practice of neurobiology

Advice for a Young Investigator (Bradford Books) - book cover picture

Too often our science is cleaned and polished to the point that it appears logical and quite easy. This remarkable monograph gives a much clearer view of the strenuous, adventurous, and often confusing nature of actually being a pioneer. It explores the social and political nature of scientific advance in a remarkably honest way, and each chapter rings true to the ears of a practicing neurobiologist today. It has quickly become favorite reading and the subject of discussion at our university, and is a must read for anyone interested in the actual craft of doing biology.

The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control - book cover picture

John Marks has done a wonderful job of piecing together the available information on the clandestine operations done by the CIA in their attempt to accomplish mind control.He begins in the early stages of their program in the 1940's and carries it through until the last of the mind control programs allegedly was shut down in 1973.In this book the author covers topics such as brain washing, hypnosis, LSD experiments, and the very tragic death of Dr. Frank Olson (as a result of an experiment gone bad). I highly recommend this book if you are interested in what occurred during the CIA's secret attempt at creating "Manchurian Candidate's"

Jinnah, Pakistan and Islamic Identity: The Search for Saladin - book cover picture

It is great to see that atlast there is a bok that can effectivelt the enormous Indian propaganda of defaming Jinnah. This book is realistic and makes the reader understand what Jinnah meant. The Indians will always try to define the creation of Pakistan asif the Muslims of the sub continent were mis-led on the name of religion but this book shows the real face of the Hindus. It shows that what caused Jinnah, a liberal Muslim and an ardent preacher of Hindu-Muslim unity to demand Pakistan. This book exposes the real ,evel face of the Hindus whose extremism and narrow mindedness forced the Muslims of the sub-continent to demand Pakistan.Being a Muslim from India , I am amongst the un-fortunate ones who are still trying to survive against these Hindu extremists who have made hell for all the minorities of this country.

Hitler's Willing Executioners : Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust - book cover picture

I found this book at a discount rack at a grocery store. I believe I was meant to read it as it has changed me deep inside. I place it up there with Leo Tolstoy's "The Kingdom of heaven is within you". It made me think of what I would have done in the era. How strong would I have to be to go against the flow? Am I that strong now? It made me think and showed me a side of the holocaust that I had not understood before. For that I am grateful.

A fine summary of the life and works of J.S.Bach.

Bach (Master Musicians Series) - book cover picture

This book provides an analyical and important summary of the greatest of all 18th century composers. Boyd succeeds in providing the life of Bach in context with the musical conditions of 18th century Germany, but adds his own perspective as seen from the end of the 20th century. I found this book most enjoyable, along the likes of other biographies of Bach, including Spitta and Schweitzer. To be added to the Bach Plucked! web site's recommended reading list.Michael Stitt

Your Heart's Desire : Instructions for Creating the Life You Really Want - book cover picture

I picked up Your Heart's Desire several years ago after reading the Psychic Pathway. The wisdom and principles, plus the inspiring stories kept me hooked---I finished it within a day. The real work started when I began playing with the 9 principles of creative manifestation. All I have to say is, if you use these principles, you're going to get what you want. I manifested my ideal mate, my amazingly wonderful career, and any physical thing that I wanted that I knew would support me in my life. Sonia points out that you must be very true to yourself in deciding what you want to create. If you're willing to do that, and you enjoy good story telling, you will probably enjoy this book. Have fun!!If you enjoy books on tape, you'll love the audio program.

A fantastic social drama

Book title: Chronicle of a Death Foretold
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Chronicle of a Death Foretold - book cover picture

Marquez creates the appearance of a murder mystery, when, in fact, he is writing a social drama. I think the novel's true protagonists are the Vicario brothers, who give society countless opportunities to stop them, and who desire to be free of their social obligation to avenge their sister's disgrace. The Vicario brothers are not the murderers of Santiago Nasar--the villagers who collectively ignore the brothers' warnings are. This is Marquez's ultimate message in this book--Nasar was killed by society, not the Vicario brothers.

Man-Eaters of Kumaon (Oxford India Paperbacks) - book cover picture

It's refreshing to read the memoirs of someone who was so famous yet so humble. He killed more than a dozen of the worst man-eating leopards and tigers in India in the early part of last century but never beats his chest or commits an unethical act. He was a true hunter and outdoorsman of the highest order and his stories reflect that. You won't get any fluff or exaggeration with Jim Corbett. He was the REAL DEAL and his chess matches against these infamous man-eaters are legendary. From the 50 mile roadmarches to the 2 day stakeouts to the high suspense tracking of wounded killers, this man was tough as nails.This book is one of his best and a must for any hunting/adventure collection.
