Atlantis, the Antediluvian World - book cover picture

Whether or not you think there was an Atlantis, this work should be read on account of the breath of insight which typifies some (not all) 19th century scholars. Professors today are often incapable of such writing because their feild of study is too narrow. This was written before Atlantis became associated with flaky new-age belief systems. It is packed with exerpts from hard to find texts from the ancient world. The analysis is graceful and intriguing, and it is hard to set the book down.

Question on Zhou Enlai's role

New Emperors: China... - book cover picture

It's great book which reveals a lot about the goings-on in Post Oct 1, 1949 China. However, there is one perplexing part which only the author (Mr Salisbury) might be able to asnwer. In chapter 30 "House of Good Fortune", there was a paragraph which said Lin Biao submitted a list of people to be executed to Zhou Enlai. It included Wang Guangmei, widow of Liu Shaoqi. ZHOU ENLAI APPROVED THE LIST BEFORE HE TOOK IT TO MOA ZEDONG. But Mao Zedong removed Wang Guangmei's name and this enabled her to live on for many more years. The intrigiung thing was, why did Zhou Enlai approve the list when days earlier he had offered words of comfort to Wang Guangmei and asked her to be strong? Was Zhou Enlai trying to save his own skin during those turbulent times? Can the author throw some light? It was only this part that the brilliant narration did not fit. Thank you.

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

Although I read it over a year ago, It was McCourt's "Ashes" that got me to start reading more and more books. I could not put this book down. It was absolutely WONDERFUL! In comparison to the movie......the movie is horrible. Don't even bother. It can't hardly dwelve into the depths of McCourt's mind, which is an endless canyon of heartache, desire, warmth and unsolicited humor. The book, although, is the most wonderful thing i've ever read and is soon to be a treasure in my home. Since then I've read 'Tis, which is just as mesmerizing.

Named Organic Reactions - book cover picture

Organic chemistry has grown from a rather simple science the day a tetrahedral configuration was proposed for tetravalent carbon atom to the giant today, as we know it! Hundreds of chemical reactions have been published. Knowing all the names, reagents, diversities of organic reactions, is not only hard; it is impossible. More often than not, organic chemists refer themselves to certain manageable collection of common reactions in organic chemistry. This book serves that purpose.The book is a compact collection of chemical reactions, listed in alphabetical orders by reaction names. Significant diversities of certain reactions and references for further reading are also included. While more comprehensive collections of reactions call for larger volumes of this subject, this book serves as a nice reference for advanced students and scientists in chemistry to frequently expose themselves to numerous organic reactions.

Women - book cover picture

As a photographer I've been following Leibovitz's work for years. I've read all of her Rolling Stone books, I have her book on Olympic Athletes and always look for her work on the cover of Vanity Fair. This is her tightest collection yet. You can tell how attached she is to her subjects from the First Lady to women on a farm, to activists in San Francisco to movie stars. Her passion for women is outstanding and clear in her work. I feel each image and feel that connection despite the extreme difference in backgrounds and lifestyles. An absolute must for every woman.

Trick of Light - book cover picture

Living in Tennessee a lot of things in this book hit really close to home. Peter Hernon struck a cord because what the book depicts really could happen. I thought this book was extremly well written and researched. There was extensive detail and a lot of creativity. It is one of my favorites. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes indepth realistic literature. It isn't a book for the timid.

The Marquess (Topaz Historical Romance) - book cover picture

I purchased this book from what was to me a "new" writer based on an Amazon.com review. I was not disappointed. I was particularily impressed with the use of language in this book. The dialoge was clever, spicy and real. It avoided the trap of trite treacle that tends to be common in romance stories. While our hero was a damaged man in need of saving his damage seemed both romantic and realistic. Further his damage did not mar his essential humanity. Dillian, our heroine, was clever, smart, and well balanced with a fine sense of humor and a generous heart. I ended up liking all of the characters and wondering if some of them would show up in books of their own. You have to love an author who calls her heroine a "saucebox". This was a wonderful, fastpaced and intelligent read.

Dark Tide I: Onslaught (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 2) - book cover picture

The story continues the involved story arc of the New Jedi Order begun in Vector Prime - an awesome book in itself - regarding the invasion of the Yuuzhan Vong, a race outside the galaxy intent on conquering the GFFA. The suspense is kept up through out - another grab you by the throat and not let go book like many in the series. My favorite parts were with Luke and Mara and their longing to have children. If you haven't started this series, take one step back, go to Vector Prime and have a great time!

Fast-Paced/Engaging Narrative of Loves Lost and Found

Book title: Only Love (Magical Love)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Only Love (Magical Love) - book cover picture

This work is the first book that I have picked up, and been constantly unable to put down. It is an outstanding tale, well written if perhaps a bit "wordy" at times, and a bit unsentimental at the most poignant moments. All in all, a good work worthy of reading, and one that seems to "stick" in the mind well after the book is finished. One cares about the characters, gets to know them and like them. However, the most touching scenes and most emotional moments seem to gloss over a bit, and a bit more detail would add to the emotional impact for the reader.

Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength - book cover picture

Body for Life is definately a great book for those who would like to change their lifestyle but have no idea on how to get started. It maps out what you need to do, step by step. Bill is down to earth and genuinely cares about people and it shows through his writing. If you need something to motivate you and give you the information you need to begin a healthy lifestyle then this book is for you. I have the hard copy so I can use the weight training pictures and the progress reports. I also have the audio book so that I can listen to it in my car when I need additional motivation. It's different to hear his voice and have him as your personal motivator. This book is worth the money.
