Carrion Comfort - book cover picture

I was appalled to hear that there was even a single person out there who did not enjoy this book to the fullest. I first read this book in 1995. It blew me away. Ever since then I have not found a single book, past or present, that reached Carrion Comfort's level. I beleive all those people out there who claim it was boring, are the same people who think that Rambo is the best movie and that Titanic "sucks". Carrion Comfort took the right elements of Horror and Science Fiction and blended them flawlessly to create a believable epic tale. It frightened me when I read it. ANd it's not the kind of fright that makes one afraid to sleep with the lights off. More of a grander fright. It's realism made one afraid that Dan Simmons knows more about what's truly going on out there than we'd like to think. In conclusion, I'll say that whoever thought Carrion Comfort was boring, didn't understand the story.

Fantastic - Definitely the best of Grisham's books!!

A Time to Kill (John Grishham) - book cover picture

I've always enjoyed courtroom drama and novels. This is the best so far. The storyline is captivating, you actually play out the scenes in your mind as you read. The author adds humour to his writing and this makes reading a breeze. The numerous characters were well defined and bring life to the story. The relationship between the white lawyer and the black client, the hatred of the Klan for the blacks, the love of a father for his daugther - these provide the emotions for the book. It even arouses a non-American (like me)'s curiousity about the culture of a Southern state like New Orleans.Take my advice - Grisham's books are definitely better than the movies. This book is a must-read!!

A great work of absurdist drama, comical and tragic

Book title: Waiting for Godot
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Waiting for Godot - book cover picture

A drama of absurdity and humor, Waiting For Godot ranks as one of my alltime favorite plays. While it's certainly not the easiest of plays to understand (especially when read), Godot's philosophical themes can be related to by everybody in today's world. Beckett achieves something altogether great with deceptively simple characters and minimal production elements. As a play of philosophical treatise, it is of the highest order. I wholeheartedly recommend this play, both for its comedic elements and its philosophical meaning.

Understanding Reagan

When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan - book cover picture

The book is well-written with Peggy Noonan's unique and gifted style. The book successfully understands Reagan character. The insights are comical,courageous and sad like life. There is the very strong thread of understated faith which was at the essence of Reagan's character.
Hopefully this book is able to explain Reagan to the critics of his policies such as his daughter Patti Davis who obviously loves him so very much but disagrees with his policies for the reasons as she set forth to the author when she witnessed the "The Speech" in 1964. The book is bountiful with wonderful observations, quotes and insights. The book as the man is honest,not clever, and inspiring.

Asset Allocation: Balancing Financial Risk - book cover picture

I don't think you'll find better advice.If you would have followed this books "ABCD" allocation, you would have made almost all the gain of the 90's and even been slightly up thru the disaster of the 00's. Better than down 48% for the SP500 eh?Your broker will hate you if you buy this book, but then maybe that's the best thing that could happen. Stop pretending you can predict the future and start managing your risk.

Write to Learn - book cover picture

I read the second edition of this wonderful book in preparation for creating a user guide for a software program based on its principles. The book was so effective I used the techniques in it to write the guide. Murray's method actually addresses the creative process, rather than the usual "find a quiet well-lit room and have plenty of paper handy" type of writing advice. Before you know it, you're drawn into trying his techniques and they work

Meg - book cover picture

Whilst traveling i`ve read quite a few books,Meg was my fifteenth in three months and all i can say is wow,i`ve read books quickly but never in less then sixteen hours,i found myself regretting putting the book down as i was captive to the story and i just kept wanting to read another chapter yet not wanting the story to end.you can always tell a good book when you regret finishing it and i can honestly say that was the case with Meg,i can`t wait to read the sequal the Trench and i hope it`s as good as the first!I find sharks facinating and from what i`ve heard and read Steve Alten has put blood and sweat into this story and it`s really paid off!if this book is ever made into a movie i`ll be there to watch it as it would have to be so much better than the dissapointing Blue Sea from last year.great book! off to read the Trench!

Sweetest book I've ever read....

Binding: Hardcover
Annie on My Mind - book cover picture

This was the first young lesbian romance I ever read, and today, even though I'm 24, well past the age of Annie and Liza, it is still my favorite book. The feelings, the passion and gentleness, confusion and happiness, portrayed in this book are so true to what many young gay and lesbian people feel in real life. This book IS real life. Although the cliches of public vs. private schools (a girl getting in trouble for piercing ears seems somehow dated in the 2000's) and rich girl vs. poor girl don't ring as true now as they did the first time I read AoMM, overall this is a fantastic depiction of first lesbian love. I would recommend this book to anyone who is lesbian or gay, but most especially I would recommend this book to straight people who are struggling to understand why someone in their family or circle of friends is gay or lesbian. This book, though fiction, can be very helpful.

So much fun - made me want a dragon...

The Tale of Custard the Dragon - book cover picture

"Guess what happened in the little white house/ Where Belinda lived with a little gray mouse,/ And a kitten, and a puppy, and a little red wagon,/ and a realio, trulio, little pet dragon." I personally feel that lyrical poetry is a great tool to help children learn to read. It helps them to feel the rhythms of the English language, they can anticipate what will come next, and then they can memorize passages - it's just a wonderful thing.So many kids have loved this book - I read a review about some of the characters being "mean" to Custard... I can see what the reviewer meant, but I don't agree - the characters are all sort of larger than life and absurd in their own way. I don't think that they come off as mean - but that's just my opinion...

F. Scott Fitzgerald: The Great Gatsby (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald) - book cover picture

I consider this book to be the greatest American novel EVER. Don't take my word for it, however, read it for yourself. Even if you end up not liking it, I think everyone should at least read this book. I also think many people don't see the depth that there really is in this book. It's not just about love, or romance. It is the persuit of a dream, a dream that is not all that it seems. A dream that is represented through one character, Jay Gatsby. Gatsby is an illusion. Read it.
