The Memoirs of Cleopatra : A Novel - book cover picture

I'm no big history buff or a Cleopatra follower. However, George brings her and the times alive in this book. This book is a fantastic escape to an ancient time. It is a must read for nearly anyone. Cleopatra the warrior, the diva, the leader, the lover, the mother, the woman, the book explores it all. Historical Fiction? What is real? What is not real? George helps answer those questions by an explanation at the end of the book. It's a keeper.

Community Corrections: Probation, Parole and Intermediate Sanctions (Reading in Crime and Punishment) - book cover picture

Hunt County Community Supervision (Adult Probation Department) Greenville, Texas, is in the process of implementing "Total Quality Management" and "Performance Based Measures". This book validates our efforts and emphasizes the need for all correction agencies to identify what they do and how that justifies expenditure of public money. We do it or someone else not connected with community corrections will. Statistics are excellent. This book is a must for all our staff and judges and anyone interested in the "crisis" in community corrections.

As good as the "Prey" series

The Concrete Blonde (A Harry Bosch Novel) - book cover picture

Having read (and liked) Mr. Connelly's "The Poet", I picked up this book (number 3 in the Harry Bosch series) and couldn't put it down once I started. I will now start reading the remaining five Harry Bosch novels in chronological order because "The Concrete Blonde" was that good. Harry Bosch is a tough and extremely credible character, the book itself is an exciting read and very well written. I especially liked the fact that it kept you guessing right to the end, providing the reader (and Harry Bosch) with a lot of false tracks to explore. If you like John Sandford's Minneapolis-based "Prey" series, you can't go wrong with Michael Connelly.

Teens and phonies

Book title: The Catcher in the Rye
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

I have read this book and I love it. A lot of people had told me about it and how good it was. The story is about Holden Caulfield, a troubled teenager who just got thrown out of high school. The story is about his experiences and thoughts. I think a lot of teens, even now, can relate. It's about feeling alienated and having every one against you. Holden keeps talking about all the phonies and there's a good point in what he's saying. The book is inspirational and eye opening. You should read it.

Always Have A Copy When You Travel

Around the World in 80 Days (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

I was heading off to San Antonio for the weekend and needed a book to read on the plane. I arbitrarily grabbed Around the World in 80 Days and it was a good thing. While everyone around me on the plane and at the airport huffed and puffed about delays, I just sat back, like Phileas Fogg, knowing that things would turn out ok. Around the World in 80 Days is not a novel of depth, but thanks to Jules Verne's immense talent for suspense and detail, he created a tale so soothing and entertaining that all you worry about the next time you travel will seem inconsequential. Always carry a copy with you whenever you go somewhere!

Dune (Dune Chronicles (Econo-Clad Hardcover)) - book cover picture

I've read all 6 books several times (and I have a life!). The way Herbert builds a society, and describes its many aspects, is unparalleled. The entire series is really about control and power. Who/what is in charge? The government? econmics? religion? technology? military? males? females? nature?Once the reader gets by the new vocabulary (interestingly based on Hebrew & Arabic), and gets into the story (you may wish to have a scorecard), you will be completely absorbed and will not want to put the books down. P.S. Even though the movie is pathetic, I have to thank its creators. I had not yet read the books, but the story seemed compelling. I bought the first book the next day, and my literary life was changed. This got me into sci-fi reading (Asimov, Heinlein, etc...). Thank you Frank Herbert.

My Second Favorite Poirot Novel, lots of action

Book title: The Big Four
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Big Four - book cover picture

I have read all of the Poirot stories; and I find that this is my favorite, second only to Curtain. I like it because it is very different than the other books of the series. Poirot is much more a man of action, and the killer stays ahead of Poirot for most of this book. (Poirot is usually more in control early on in his cases.) There is also much more danger with Poirot being called upon more than once to save Hastings' life.

This story showcases Hastings' innocence and trusting nature more than any other book of the series. Because of Hastings' personality, Poirot has to resort to tricking him to effectively solve the case. The creation of Poirot's twin brother is one of the most interesting factors in this tale. Agatha Christie tricks her readers a bit too, but finally lets us in on the truth at the end.

Exceedingly recommended!

The Portable Pediatrician for Parents - book cover picture

Buy this book for yourself and then buy it for every baby shower you ever attend. I LOVE "The Portable Pediatrician". Dr. Nathansan does a "portrait of an age" at the beginning of each chapter where she profiles a fictional, typical child of that age. It's usually pretty funny and very enlightening. Then she goes on to describe what is going on developmentally for that age and psychologically, why these kids do what they do. It really helps a lot! I feel like knowing why your child is doing something is the first step in dealing with it. Not only that, she describes every childhood illness or complaint in detail...it's like having your own private pediatrician on call 24/7.

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

When one of my friends recommended it, I just smiled and thought "Yeah, whatever." Then, my pen pal mentioned it. After some thought--and a trip to the bookstore--I tried Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I was so intrigued by the second book, I immediately read the first and I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!!! Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is inspiring and I can NOT wait for the U.S. to release Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!!!

Most Excellent Trilogy

Royal Assassin - book cover picture

I had to take a few moments out from my own writing to submit this review for Robin Hobbs "Royal Assassin". I personally have all three (3) books of the "Farseer Triology" in my collection.I recommend "Assassins Apprentice", "Royal Assassin", and "Assassins Quest" to every fantasy reader. These are all simply hard to lay aside once you have read the first page.Frankly, this is the best connected triology I have had the opportunity of reading. Hats off to Robin!Dave
