A friend of mine, in the midst of getting his commercial pilot's license, heard that I was a huge fan of helicopters. He had had this book for ages, it took me forever to give it back! Robert Mason brings you right into his life. You feel the flight, emotions, fear and frustration. It has something for everyone; human interest, detailed flight description, detailed mapping of the war. You'll probably be surprised to know that I am female and love this book! I am just about to order my own copy.

my mother recommended this book to me at the beginning of 8th grade, and at first i was hesitant to read it due to its size. i finished it wishing it would be longer! the experiences marjorie has are extremely interesting, and she is an amazing and inspiring character. her relationships are particularly fun, and full of surprises. i will never love a book as much as i love this one, and ever since i've had trouble enjoying what i read. this book truly had an impact on me, and i'll never be the same. readers will treasure it for years to come.

Slacker - book cover picture

This film is an artistic triumph. The camera angles are unique and add to the silliness of this film -- if you are looking for something entirely different from the Hollywood fodder this is it. The vignettes are inventful, and the characters are just spectacular! Linklater does a decent job of portraying GenX angst and their questioning of their place in the world. I've seen two of his other films -- "Dazed and Confused" which is really gun and well done, and "Suburbia" which is pretty pathetic and chock full of stereotypes.

Enthralling (and Much Darker) to the End...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) - book cover picture

Having been disappointed with Book 5, I wasn't sure what to expect for Book 6. The first two chapters were a little on the dry side but starting at Chapter 3, the tale spun ahead and carried me through to the end, when I sobbed with heartfelt sorrow. The story was more tightly knit than in the last book and many loose ends were tied, with references to the past that help weave Book 6's tale. Tied with Prisoner of Azkaban, this is definitely my favorite of the series!

The Forgotten Beasts of Eld - book cover picture

I'm so pleased to find The Forgotten Beasts of Eld is back inprint. Now new readers can share the pleasure of reading thisexcellent fantasy. I first read this as a college student back in the mid-70's when it was first written. I've followed the works of Patricia McKillip ever since then. I bought the book the same day as I bought Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn. What a rare find, two lyrical, enchanting novels with vivid characters, both discovered together. Sadly, I've found that only a few fantasy novels have lived up to the standards set for me that day.

a haunting ending.......

Book title: Ice Hunt
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Ice Hunt - book cover picture

Ice Hunt...what can I say except that I didn't sleep once I started it! I didn't eat much, either. I was too busy to answer my phone, turn on my computer, or even talk to my boyfriend. The story definitely never gave me a chance to be bored, or even for my interest to begin to flag. When I reached the final sentence of the book, I was truly into it....and said final sentence is still being quoted by me, repeatedly in fact, as an awesome and haunting way to end a book! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who happens to have an imagination, or even for those who do not!

Soldat : Reflections of a German Soldier, 1936-1949 - book cover picture

I read this book shortly after it was first published and recall it now as I read "German Boy" by Wolfgang Samuel. "Soldat" is an excellent account of an "ordinary german's" experiences as a soldier in World War II. The parts I particularly remember are his accounts of pre-War ski trips with his friends, and his transition from a school boy to a member of the Wehrmacht - how he fought with such efficiency against African troops in France, and how his pre-War training prepared him for fighting.

Life on the Color Line : The True Story of a White Boy Who Discovered He Was Black - book cover picture

Reaching goals and obtaining them when you get there can be very hard. It is one thing to say you're going to accomplish your dreams, but to do it is another thing also. Gregory had used hard times in his life growing up, as willpower in acheiving his goal as a lawyer. I felt that it goes to show that you don't have to let hard times stop you from reaching your dreams. From reading and getting a better understanding of the book I've learned the value of hard work and dedication. Gregory used all his extra hours of life, studying,and reading to keep his mind refreshed with new thoughts. He was also forced to become a man before his time which had made him become more responsible. This responsibilty was also put forth his education. I really recommend this book for anyone. Epescially someone who feels that their less capable of reaching a goal that seems to only be a figment of your imagination.

Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant - book cover picture

This is the book that got me hooked as a lifelong Anne Tyler fan. Her writing speaks to me in so many ways; I'm always moved, amused, frustrated, angry or just plain bewildered along with her quirky characters. Their feelings are authentic and I can often identify with them. As an author myself (NEW PSALMS FOR NEW MOMS: A KEEPSAKE JOURNAL, Judson Press), I especially appreciate Anne Tyler's wonderful eye for detail, writing descriptions that are spare yet so evocative. I've read all of her books and always look forward to the newest novel from this talented writer.

What is the true nature of "evil?"

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - book cover picture

This book is more than just a revision of the famous Oz story. It is that, and more. One of the most incredible parts of this book is that it made me think about how we define those "grey" areas that could be evil-- political violence, for it justified if in the name of making the world better? I don't know the answer, but the book certainly makes you think about this and other issues.
