The Slippery Slope (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 10) - book cover picture

How is it possible? How can one author pull it off 10 times in a row? Magnificent. Lemony Snicket (if that's his true name) is brilliant the "The Slippery Slope." While the Baudelaires orphans try to figure out more information about their lost parents and discovering the true secrets behind the V.F.D, they also have to worry about getting their sister back from he clutches of the evil Count Olaf. So many twist and turn are thrown at the Baudelaire orphans, you cant seem to read it without thinking "how do they do it?" The tone of this book is supposed to be slightly depressing with a little humor. I highly recommend this book the anyone that can read. Excellent.

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir of a Childhood - book cover picture

Frank McCourt did a wonderful job bring his readers back to his tragic childhood in Ireland. Poverty was something that his family struggled with and it did not help the situation as his father was a hard-core alcoholic who prefers to spend his dole money on drinks even though his family is barely surviving. McCourt also had to deal with the deaths of his sibblings due to improper care and lack of food. I like this book a lot because it makes us think of how fortunate we are, to have food, loved ones and at times, we don't appreciate what we have. This book also gives a good perspective of how difficult times were after the Great Depression and how World War II were able to provide jobs for a lot of people and helped to boost the economy. I think this book is quite funny too besides the problems faced by the McCourts. The author did a great job in observing his surroundings and also find humors in difficult times.

A must read book for a mom as well as stepmom.


Book title: Stepmom
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Stepmom - book cover picture

Being a stepmom is a real rough job. People automatically assume that you are some kind of home wrecker and end up not giving you a chance when all you want is to love and be loved! I love my husband and everything about him, even his 6yr. old daughter.But it sure is hard not to take things personally. I saw myself and stepdaughter so many times in the book and it made me feel like I wasn't alone. Mom's and stepmoms should definatly read it!!

A promising start to a new epic saga from TOR


Book title: Lord of the Isles (Lord of the Isles)
Rating: 5/5

Lord of the Isles (Lord of the Isles) - book cover picture

I was very impressed by LORD OF THE ISLES. It upholds TOR's high standards of epic fantasy. In the tradition of Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind, Drake's novel is noteworthy for its interesting characters and attention to detail. I look forward to QUEEN OF DEMONS, the second volume of this epic saga. Drake has the makings of a master fantasist, though most readers probably know of him through his superb military fiction. If you're looking for something good to read until the next Wheel of Time novel is published, give LORD OF THE ISLES a try.

When Genius Failed : The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management - book cover picture

I have learned much about the finance world by reading this book. I admired Merriwether and his clever partners on their way to success, and I was terrified (not an exaggeration) at the force with which LTCM came crashing down without anyone being able to do everything to stop the fall.
The book is a lesson in economy, and a glimpse into a world of gains so fantastic that would leave 99.9% of common people with their mouth gaping. The highly skilled partners had the magic touch, but they failed to follow basic business rules, and no matter how good they were the strength of the market destroyed their businees like an infuriated God wiping a small planet out of its orbit with the back of his hand. Excellent book, excellent writer, great reading experience.

The Uncertain Path (Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice, Book 6) - book cover picture

First of all, i am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I can tell youabsolutely anything about that universe, both expanded and in themovies. And I am absolutely OBSESSED with the Jedi. No offnse to Darth Maul, here, So, when the Jedi Apprentice Series came out, I like, freaked. Obi-wan has to be one of my favorite characters, and I want to know everything(repeat, everything)about him, even though he's dead. These books are excellent, even though a bit youngish. I love them and Jude Watson for writing them! May The Force Be With You All! :)

The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL - book cover picture

The thing that blew me away about this book is how well written it is. Henderson has a way of explaining the most difficult concepts is prose that is nitpickingly detailed, yet friendly and readable. The explanation and examples of tsql functions that do statististical calculations was marvelous. Absolutely excellent. The same is true of the rest of the book. It's definitely head and shoulders about the other tsql books out there, especially the one I got last week by Moreau and co. which I am considering returning.

Wedges Gamble (Star Wars: X-Wing Series, Book 2) - book cover picture

Since throughly enjoying the first episode of the Rogue Squadron, I eagerly lapped up the second with relish. I was not going to be let down, Stackpole has bettered the first book, by delving into the main characters even more. The story grabs you and leads you down into the adventurus world of the X-wing pilots, we share their fears, their concerns, their victories and their losses. The characters and storyline have grown so large, that I am surprised that they have not featured in any of the other novels. Once again a big WELL DONE, and may there be many more coming

If you're concerned about writing a Code that you and other people will understand,
respect and maintain - this book is for you. Some people throw out the code like
they throw clothes to laundry machine .. I personally don't like them.
Get a style, be precise and accurate, become familiar with "must-know" idioms,
read this book. Well, I'm opening it again right now.
Those who wrote it - thank you, folks ! Good job.

The New Comprehensive American Rhyming Dictionary - book cover picture

I bought this, not too long ago, for a friend of mine who is a high school English teacher. She raves about how helpful it is to her in class and how much the kids enjoy using it. She has stressed its value so much that I now feel it is a must for my reference library. After all we've all been there, trying to find a rhymne for that odd word. It's like trying to think of a synonym something and there not a thesaurus to be found.
