The Reconciliation (Imajica, Book 2) - book cover picture

This book is a tidle wave of experiences and emotions! I did not think Clive could top his efforts in Weaveworld, but I was sorely mistaken. He takes the reader through radically different worlds in this piece of work. Join Gentle (John Furie Zacharias) as he travels through the five different dominions and challenges himself to reconcile them all into one. Only he has the power and the drive to complete this monumental task. I have read this book (the ONE BOOK version) several times. Each time it gets a bit better. Between Jude, Gentle, Pie-O-Pah and Dowd, the action never stops! How many of you have been to another dominion? You may never know if you don't read this book..

Electric Language : Understanding the Message - book cover picture

Look out, all you stuffed academics, all you jaded media types, all surfers caught in a web: McLuhan is back, or rather his son. This latest volume brings the McLuhan canon up to the present and centers on electric media. Amid the extraordinary graphics waits the expected compressed McLuhanesque prose; at first a distraction to one comfortable with a plain page and plain text, the graphics slow the rapid reader down to spend more time on each sentence. The ground of the whole is of course all of literature, from Homer to Joyce, supported by the usual mix of science and anthropology. This is no eulogy for literacy a la Birketts, and no wandering lament at declining civility a la Sanders. McLuhan describes the current malaise and gives the reader tools for understanding it, and maybe even stepping apart from it. But be discreet; the electric crowd is not very tolerant of outliers.

Amazing- a beautifully written thriller


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

I don't normally write reviews but this book inspired one. Mr. Harris is a wordsmith who crafts sentences as individual pieces of art. I listened to this as an audiobook and found myself constantly replaying sentences. More amazingly, I listend to the whole thing all over again as soon as I finished it the first time. The fact that he uses these wonderful sentences to tell a thrilling and different story puts this one right over the top. I normally give my audiobooks to our library as soon as I finish listening to them on my long commute, but while I hope they get a copy for all to enjoy, this one I'm keeping. I may want to pop a cassette in yet again to savor this unexpected treasure.

slow beginning, but continue reading


Book title: Life of Pi
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Life of Pi - book cover picture

This is a tale of survival and faith, that is must-read in my opinion. The book starts with a tedious note of Pi's growing up in India but becomes more interesting as it goes along. It stands out for its lack of use of high-sounding words, clarity of presentation and the simple and straightforward story. If you stopped reading after the first few pages, then you definitely missed something good. The goings on are from a young teenager's point of view and any observations are correspondingly sophisticated. If I were 16 years old and I did what Pi did, I would be very proud indeed! The simplicity of the story-telling is what struck me the most, as did the thought-provoking end to the story.

Nonrigorous yet thorough explanation of vector calculus


Book title: Div, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Div, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus - book cover picture

This book is excellent for understanding the basics of vector calculus: divergence, curl, gradient, Stokes' Theorem, Divergence Theorem, surface integrals, etc. Most vector calculus texts gloss over the big picture of vector calculus with mathematical rigor that is usually too abstract for non-math students, preventing many from truly understanding vector calculus. Schey's book keeps the math to a minimum and makes sure the basic concepts of vector calculus are thoroughly, yet concisely, explained. The book is also nice to have as a future reference tool.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was a very exciting book. I could not stop listening to it. I thought the story line was very good. Although Quidditch wasn't in the book, I loved the Triwizard Tournament. The third task was my favorite of the three tasks. I thoght the time when Harry was upside-down was very creative. I can;t wait until the next book is released (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). J.K. Rowling is a great writer, and I hope she writes more books after the Harry Potter Series. Overall the book was great and deserves five stars.

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay - book cover picture

I finished "The Adventures..." last night and probably won't pick up another book for a few days. When I read a book of this caliber, I like to reflect on it for a few days. I was so impressed by this book! I was interested for the entire 600+ pages. It was exciting, funny, serious, and incredibly descriptive. Sometimes it gave the feeling of a comic strip and I could visualize NYC in the 40's. The characters were well written, I cared about what happened to them. I see that some reviewers complained about a bit of ambiguity, but I prefer that a writer not tell me every detail. Instead we are trusted to know the characters well enough to make draw our own conclusions on the unsaid. I believe Chabon accomplished this, as I did not feel "left in the dark" at all.I would recommend this book to anyone who is not intimidated by it's length, regardless of whether or not they are interested in comics. This book is not "fluff," it is deep and intelligent.

My Favorite Novel


Book title: The Once and Future King
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Once and Future King - book cover picture

T.H. White was a closeted homosexual and a conscientious objector during the Second World War. He keenly felt the pressures of modernity and yet he was drawn inexorably to the old stories of Arthur and his noble knights. The Once and Future King does much more than chronicle the boyhood of Arthur, his rise to power, and his tragic fall. It brilliantly weaves these medieval stories into a modern framework. White's concept was not unique to him--Geoffrey of Monmouth, Chretien de Troyes, and Thomas Malory used similar techniques--but no one in the twentieth century did it better. (The novel is the basis for Lerner and Loewe's Camelot. Often touching and even powerful, Camelot nevertheless trivializes its subject material.)

SHEER GENIUS

Binding: Paperback
Wise Blood - book cover picture

I've never read a piece of American literature as profound as WISE BLOOD. Even though it was first published in early '50s, the book will certainly shock you all the way through with its violent images and brutal characters. BUT this American masterpiece is still helplessly beautiful. And also amazingly funny. After reading WISE BLOOD, you will never be able to shake it out of your mind as long as you live - GUARANTEED!! Flannery O'Connor is god!
