Island Harvest - book cover picture

For those who have not witnessed the nairn cooking style on TV, do what you can to see him action. The "island harvest" series showed how simple many of his dishes are, all utilising the freshest local ingredients. None of the generic "here's one I prepared earlier" TV chef cliches. His approach is simple, and nick really stresses how by using the freshest ingredients, the best dishes are (usually) the most basic. How many TV chefs can cook up the fresh caught highland trout on a gas camping stove, on the edge of the loch in which the trout swam minutes before? Nick is an inspirational chef. Watch the series, buy the book, see a real chef in action

Only The Strong Survive

Lucky : A Memoir - book cover picture

Ideally, I considered this book quite interesting and very formal in the description of Alice Sebold's rape. I thought this story proved to be an astounding story of a young, eighteen year old woman's will to go on and accomplish the biggest mmilestone in her life. This book very throughly takes us from the p[erfect life of a college freshman with so much to offer and look forward to, down to a scared, feared Alice. Alice's rape has cost her grief, pain, and resteration. What I thought was amazing about the book was that even though Alice had been stripped away from her pride, she still manages to go on and achieve new heights and overcome her rape. Alice comes accross a few characters whom help her through. Alice's character is very strong willed and independant. It's nice to read about something you believe and instill faith in. Alice instilled faith in herself, and nshe never gave up.

Brian Jacques writes with yet another fantastic Redwall book

The Long Patrol (Redwall, Book 10) - book cover picture

In almost every Redwall novel if not all there is a hare. Hares are extremely comical and even more hungry creatures and it seemed as though you could never get enough of them in Jacques' other books, until the Long Patrol. Other than being funny, bottomless pits, the hares are also very noble creatures and veterans in the ways of war. At Salamandastrom, the legendary volcano, the even more legendary Long Patrol meet up with a young hare and go through thick and thin, through tons of small subplots until the book is topped off with a huge battle with countless vermin of the infamous rapscallion hord in order to save freedom for all good creatures in a desperate fight between good and evil.

Blood on the Forehead: What I Know About Writing - book cover picture

I'm not a short story reader - I don't like 'em... really never have. So when M.E. Kerr's book came out - I was skeptical about buying it. Then I read a review, and decided to give it a chance. Thankfully I did! I learned not only tips on how to write better, but I learned how to pull a story together. What makes a story tick and I learned - most importantly - that everyone has a voice - you just have to find it. Now I'm ready and willing and maybe able to try my hand at writing a short story. If I can be half as successful as Ms. Kerr - life would be good!!

After reading the complete Idiots Guide To Reading Groups, I immediately gathered a group of my friends to create a book club. The ingenius ideas of having meetings and making them interesting were inventive. Reading is becoming extinct, but this guide gives great suggestions on books to lure people back in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have suggested it to several colleagues to begin their own reading groups.

The Great Hunt (The Wheel of Time, Book 2) - book cover picture

This is the kind of fantasy I like, and this series really starts to take off with this book (but books 3 and 4 are even better).

If you're the type of fantasy reader who loves to savor a well-written, descriptive, very long epic full of well-developed and lovable-but-not-too-perfect characters, then you should try the Wheel of Time.

The series does get slower later as the many characters get bogged down in a huge and complex war of good vs. evil, but the writing style stays consistently beautiful, and the action progresses (later books are not just side stories).

I've read all of the books, and I'm still in. But, it might not be a bad idea to wait to start the series until it's completed.

99 Film Scenes for Actors - book cover picture

Angela Nicholas has hit a "home run" with this tighly edited compilation of great movie scenes! I teach an on-camera acting class, in Studio City, CA and the students love the material! Angela has painstakingly edited these scenes & turned them into balanced gems. From Annie Hall, Pulp Fiction, to Working Girl, the material is so diverse and up to date. What a gift! Other scene study books, bog you down with stale dialogue! The movie scenes chosen by Angela, flow with comedic and dramatic timing. These scenes are brilliantly broken down and an excellent tool for teaching Film & TV acting. Angela has saved me from digging through endlessly boring scene study books. My students are now excited to perform scenes from movies they love. Angela, thank you for taking us to a whole new level! A "must have" book, for serious acting coaches and students! When can we expect a new edition of Film Scenes For Actors? We'd love to see more!!Thank you, Phil De Champlain

Excellent Book

The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter - book cover picture

I read this for a mystery book discussion group, and we all liked it very much. McCrumb does an excellent job of putting you in the Appalachians and of detailing the various characters in this novel. Even with the powers which the oldwoman Nora Bonesteel possesses, this story comes off as believable. As I said the characters come off as real in both their flaws and attributes. This story has multiple plots occurring at the same time and does change frequently from one scene to another, but this does not take to story, but rather adds to your interest in each circumstance. Be aware that this is a novel, and not strictly a mystery. The mystery does not take center stage but its solution is well worth the trip thru Appalachia. The most rewarding thing is looking back at the end of the book and seeing things that pointed to the end. I felt much the way I did after I had seen the "Sixth Sense". Don't pass on this book.

Tropical Freeze - book cover picture

This is Hall's second novel, Thorn's second outing. It is rich with minor characters and full of the elegant writing that marks all of his work. The book is about a scheme to smuggle into the US some very bad guys from other countries. Thorn stumbles onto it after losing one of his childhood friends who was an FBI agent working on the case.There are some really funny scenes and some beautiful snapshots of Key Largo. He brings that place alive brilliantly. It's almost as good as Under Cover of Daylight and right up there with some of the later Thorn novels, Mean High Tide and Red Sky at Night (my favorite).

Giovanni's Room - book cover picture

This is a story that maybe a little controvercial to some, but nevertheless it is such an EXCELLENT book!
The story takes place in paris during a time when most blacks were in the US and few vendured outside the US. The twists and turns of the sexuallity context is handeled BEAUTIFULLY by means of letting the reader know but not know. The character ultimately is drawn between the woman and the man in his life and is frankly confused.
Without giving too much away, the book just keeps your attention and has you drawn in so much that you want to complete the book in one sitting....Now that's what a book should do!
