Death Sentence: The True Story of Velma Barfield's Life, Crimes and Execution - book cover picture

I'm sorry, but I did not see Velma Barfield as a "sympathetic" character. 99% of us have had less than perfect childhoods, but we don't use prescription drugs to hide from the world or poison people we perceive as being in our way.I don't care how "redeemed" a killer on death row becomes. It doesn't bring back the people they murdered. And I think it's ridiculous how convicted murderers can delay their punishment for years with appeals and stays, things that their victims never got.No, the book did not make me "re-think" my pro-death penalty stance. If you play, you must pay,,,whether you're Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy...or a grandmother from North Carolina.

To Fly and Fight: Memoirs of a Triple Ace - book cover picture

Col. Anderson's accounts of his flying in WWII and as a test pilot are truly memorable. While the writing style is course, it reflects his verbal recollections. I heard Col. Anderson speak at a Test Pilot School graduation; the way he told his stories and his dry humor are as much evident in the book as when he was on the stage. The room was full of test pilots and their families, and you could hear a pin drop. One of the very best books on a man and his love of flying, duty, honor, country, and his family. A must read!

Amazing Little Introduction

Book title: What Is Six Sigma?
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
What Is Six Sigma? - book cover picture

This is a fantastic overview of Six Sigma and Six Sigma programs. The only downfall is that the book leaves you so hungry for more!! In fact, because I enjoyed this book so much, I immediately rushed out and picked up copies of Pande's "The Six Sigma Way" and "The Six Sigma Way Fieldbook." If you're curious about what Six Sigma is all about, this is definately the book for you. However, if you want sufficient information to actually start a Six Sigma program of your own, skip this book and move directly to one or both of the Author's "Six Sigma Way" books. Highly recommended.

The Instant Tarot Reader : Book And Card Set - book cover picture

Small, easy to handle cards with modern colors and images that have the feel of the old-time 'spiritualist' movement. Reading "by the book", the interpretations are accurate and make learning the standard meanings very easy. By far the best beginner's deck for anyone who wants to throw the cards and get an answer on the doubleon their first try. Open to intuitive reading as well, it's a deck that's a keeper long after the original purpose of learning the tarot has been fulfilled.

The book is about 3 kids, Violet, who likes to invent things, Klaus, a book worm, and Sunny, who likes to bite things and say baby words like "Leepo". They inherit the Baudelaire fortune after their parents die in a fire. They are sent to live with a man named Count Olaf who is after their fortune. He comes up with a plan so he can inherit the fortune. He wants Violet to marry him in a play, but since a legal document is involved, Violet is really Count Olaf's spouse. The children read up on the Law and get help from a judge named Justice Stauss. Violet concocts a way so the marriage is invalid.

It deserves 5 stars because it has a great plot and is a great books for kids from 9 and up.

Outstanding Epic

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

Tai-Pan is a wonderful epic novel. The story is fascinating on many levels. First, since it takes place in Hong Kong, there is a spectacular cultural and historical backdrop for the entire book. On top of that, the plot that Clavell developed is quite intriguing, and the characters are interesting as well. Finally, there are lessons on leadership and morality as well, for those who would like something more than an extremely enjoyable novel!

Wilderness Empire (Wilderness Empire, 1755) - book cover picture

Eckert is indeed a master story-teller. He recounts in a lively and readable fashion the complex history and personalities of the French and Indian war period, from Montreal and Quebec to Detroit, Pittsburg and Albany. As with his other books, he weaves the lives and actions of well-known figures with those who are less known, but no less important, in this case from Pontiac, Montcalm, and Benjamin Franklin to Sir William Johnson and many lesser chiefs of the Iroquois. Eckert's books are thoroughly enjoyable and highly accurate, an unbeatable combination.

Wonderful book that fiction readers may miss in mystery sect

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

This is the second of Martha Grimes books which depart from her usual fun English mystery format and I think it is much more successful than the first attempt.
This book tells the story of a 12 year old girl living with her Mother in a run-down resort hotel who becomes obsessed with understanding why a girl her age drowned in the lake in front of their property 40 years ago.

It is really a great coming of age story about a young girl who has been emotionally abandoned by her family and who needs find a place for herself and understand that sometimes one person in a family may become the family scapegoat for reasons they can't control.
You will love the main character. She is spunky and intelligent and brave.

This book is usually cataloged in the mystery section but is really just good fiction and shouldn't be overlooked by those people who say "I don't read mysteries".

When my mom got this book for me,I didn't think it would be all that different from books I had read earlier,but I was very wrong,very,very wrong.This book captures the emagination,with things like dragons,magic wands,trolls,giants,fierce competitions,ghosts,and especialy witches and wizards!This book is also so gloriously funny,and,unlike most books,it hooks you right from the beginning and it doesn't bore you with a page or two about how a wall looked,like a few things I have read.I therefore recomend this wonderful book,that gave me so much pleasure,to readers everywhere!
