J.R.R. Tolkien's LOTR is the book of the century.

The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Tolkien created a book that does require multiple readings. But, every time I re-read his work, more nuances appear. Very much like the Bible. I feel that I know Tolkien the man even though we never met. His words make Middle Earth come alive for me like no other work has. The words "epic masterpiece" fall short of describing The Lord of the Rings, but they will have to do. I feel that I am as qualified as any previous reviewer because I have not only read and re-read the LOTR 32 times, but I have a BA in English from Armstrong Atlantic University. I was shown how to appreciate great literature from several nationally recognized college professors. I think Tolkien rates with Shakespeare and Tolstoy just to mention two.

Need to Know, but Engaging Too

Routing the Golf Course: The Art & Science that Forms the Golf Journey - book cover picture

This book is at once engaging and informative. It's packed with practical advice and step-by-step instructions for planning a course - something that I haven't found in this kind of detail in any other book. And amidst the practical information are terrific stories about bad routings (a civil engineer who designed a dog-leg 180 yard par 3!), stories about how a routing preserved an archaeological treasure (The Moundbuilders Country Club), and stories about the author's own successes and failures. Interviews with Bob Graves, Dr. Michael Hurdzan, Pete Dye and a host of other golf course architects shed light on their routing experiences and highlight just how critical the routing phase is to the success of a course. Really well done.

Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution - book cover picture

i just started this diet about 2 weeks ago, and it is the best diet i have ever been on. You don't have a set table of food that you have to eat. (like i bagel for breakfast, 2 cups of tuna for lunch) You can eat what you want, when you want. And it works. The first week i didn't really lose anything, but that was because i had estrogen running through my bloodstream. But the second week was great. I'm at about 15 pounds now, and still losing steadly. This is a great diet, i recomend it to anyone.

Excellent way to cope with daily problems of child rearing

Summerhill School: A New View of Childhood - book cover picture

I read this book many years ago while a pediatrician. I recommended it to my parents but few were able to put aside their own entrenched feelings of child rearing for those recommended by Neill. The book should be read as a manual for the use of Neill's "Freedom without liscence" doctrine, which merely gives parents a method of evauating the right course of proceedure when they come into conflict with their children. The schooling methods are obviously not practical in today's environment. "Freedom without license" is the message of the book. It is a fine message and it works when applied by parents willing to adhere to it..

Sex, Dwarves, And Rocks That Roll!

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

This is another great Discworld novel. It's about the birth of Music With Rocks In on the Disc. I just finished it, and was left with a very profound feeling that, somehow, I'm quite NORMAL next to this guy.Anyway, it's about the granddaughter of Death, who has gone on a philisophical journey. Susan Sto Helit climbs aboard Binky (Death's white horse) and kills a lot of folk-until she meets Imp y Celyn. Imp, whose full, translated name is "small shoot of the holly" is the birth of Music with Rocks In on the Discworld. With a new name ("Buddy"), he and Glod the Dwarf ("We're on a mission from Glod") and Cliff the Troll start a band called The Band With Rocks In, and get the entire faculty of Unseen University in an uproar, even the Librarian ("Oook.") What follows is, well, hilarity. Read this, then go read Small Gods, and you'll be hooked for live on Discworld.

Kafka's Clothes: Ornament and Aestheticism in the Habsburg Fin De Siecle - book cover picture

While his previous two works, "From the Ground Up: A Study of the Use of Prepositions in The Dramatic Works of Nikolai Gogal," and "Metamorphosis," were both gloriously academic and even enjoyable, Mark M. Anderson scores with his newest! (Although I did find his insect to human thing interesting.) "Kafka's Clothes..." gives us an indepth view into the wardrobe of this guy Franz Kafka. I particularly enjoyed the long descriptions of his Wednesday sweater, an article of clothing that echoes vaguely of the modern day sweater-vest. The guy, Franz Kafka, wore a lot of neutrals, mostly like tweed and wool. Anderson gives wonderful insight into the sock drawer not only of the guy but of the time. Engaging. Brilliant? Also, not to be missed is chapter four's retelling of "The Pied Piper." I had no idea that the guy playing the flute was blonde. Who knew?

An Excellent Read

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

Some other readers have bashed this book for not being realistic about the horse aspects of the story. Well I say, if you want horse facts, get an equestrian book! This is a romance novel!! And an excellent one at that. The main character, Raine is a loveable young woman who's been overshadowed by her father's wealth and her older sisters' beauty all her life. Until she finally finds something that she was good at and could call her own--horseback riding. Her riding career culminates at the Olympic games where she meets our hero, Cord. The two share an undeniable attraction so powerful that it leaves them both off balance. Throw in some past hurts and a few very present dangers and you've got a real page-turner.

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - book cover picture

As a fan of the world of Oz, Maguire's version is magnificent. The details of Oz and the humanity afforded the Witch are awe inspiring. It's so cleanly written, the descriptions leap brilliantly to life in your mind and the hours sweep past unnoticed while reading this book. Maguire is a genius storyteller, taking classic fairytales and giving them real meat and bones. Any adult who loved the original fairytales should read Maguire's versions, you won't be disappointed.
