The Jane Austen Book Club: A Novel - book cover picture

I love Jane Austen. I have for a few years. Not in that 'oh, I'm a scholar of great literature' way, but rather in the 'I love to read because I love reading' way. This is the perfect book for someone who loves reading for fun, as well as for genuine scholarly interest. If you're worried about not understanding this book because you're not familiar with Jane Austen's work, don't worry. The plot is wonderful and works well whether you know Jane or not. In fact, I didn't even notice the allusions to her novels and the plot devices that Fowler was using until I began to look for them. However, if you are a fan of Austen's, it's only natural that you will get a huge thrill from reading this book. Fowler adeptly uses her characters to suggest certain Austen characters, sometimes more than one at a time, while simultaneously using events that are Austen-like. So any Austen fans will be squealing for joy at Fowler's work. My point is this: if you like reading, you will like this book.

Perfume : Complete and Unabridged - book cover picture

Very quickly I will state that I was given this book by a professor at the University of West Florida and, having not heard anything about it, it sat on a shelf for five months. Then I decided to give it a chance out of boredom more than anything else...and suddenly found that I could not put it down.A contemporary classic. Rich imagery, captivating characters, a suspenseful storyline and flowing prose (the translation seems to be much better here than other German-English texts I have read - kudos to John E. Woods) make this a must read.

Introduction to Algorithms - book cover picture

Giving this book a bad review because:
a) you had a bad instructor for the course
b) you find the material difficult
c) you can't understand pseudo-codeare not what I would call constructive or worthwhile critiques of the text of this excellent book. PLEASE society, PLEASE understand that some topics you have to actually WORK at understanding. It won't be spoon fed to you.It seems moreso with Computer Science majors than other majors (I'm an electrical engineer undergrad, comp sci grad student) that they whine and whine and whine about the math or about it being difficult to actually have to work to understand something. Oh my GOODNESS!!!! It's hard? Well, BLAME THE BOOK.Rant over.This book is amazing. It's the bible of algorithms and, to some extent, data structures. If you're not aforementioned whiners, feel free to buy this book, work hard, and learn a lot! There's not a better book out there in my experience.

L.A. Requiem - book cover picture

In this powerful novel, Robert Crais transcends the crime novel with a work that is sure to be a breakout sensation! A bookseller friend raved about this novel, and she was right! It is a masterwork that moved me to tears, surprised me with plot twists, made me laugh, and kept me riveted to the pages. I've enjoyed all of Crais' work, but L. A. Requiem is breathtaking. Don't wait for this book to be published. Beg, borrow, or steal a reading copy NOW. If this thing doesn't win the Edgar, they should stop giving them!

Intelligent Software Agents - book cover picture

I am very surprised at the recent reviews of this book and I agree with the vast majority of the other more positive reviews that this is one of the best books on agents that I have come across. The book is well written, concise and to the point. It provides strategic value,with recommendations. It is practical, pragmatic and easy to read and understand.I have no hesitation in recommending this book to my CIO ( I have already done so) and other senior management, project managers, agent developers.

Vital book for school change and responsiveness to change

Book title: Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change - book cover picture

This book is essential for anyone seriously considering a role of leadership in schools or districts. In the book, the reader learns about excellent and practical science to make schools a better place. There is not a topic that isn't covered. All of the practical issues are present. Yes, the book uses the language of very good behavioral sciences, and that is appropriate. With all the headline things that have happened in the world with schools, its important that major leaders in schools have good grounding in practical science of behavior change. What's really neat about the book is that almost everything in its is doable. You can make it happen. In my own landmark research on youth violence, I could not have done it without standing on the shoulders of giants like Beth Sulzer-Azaroff and G.Roy Mayer. Every future teacher or administrator has to have studied this book.

The Best Book I Have Ever Read

The Season of Passage - book cover picture

I love this book. It made me feel as though I was walking on Mars with Lauren, Gary, and Jim; grieving on Earth with Terry; and fighting the monsters with all of them. While reading this book I felt sadness, anger, happiness, shock, betrayal, and horror. Never before have I felt such a wide range of emotions just by reading a book. How Christopher Pike describes how Mars become a desolate and barren world and what the human race was like in the beginning is truly amazing. Exceptionally well written with characters your will fall in love with. A spine tingling, back prickling and bone chilling work of art.

Historical Tough Guy Fiction

Book title: A Conspiracy of Paper
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
A Conspiracy of Paper - book cover picture

Despite its somewhat awkward title, "Conspiracy of Paper" is a first rate work of historical fiction with enough action to please any mystery fan. Author David Liss paints a vivid portrait of early 18th century London as seen through the eyes of his protagonist, Jewish "theif-taker" Benjamin Weaver. Weaver is actually a forerunner to the modern private eye, and is as quick with his wits as he is with his tounge.As the book opens, Weaver is hired to investigate the apparently accidental death of his own estranged father. He delves, reluctantly at first, into a world of double-dealing and high finance, in which paper "currency" is fast replacing barter and gold as the principle means of exchange. Liss is a master at creating the proper atmosphere, and he painstakingly includes the necessary detail to give his story authenticty. The end result is a book that is satisfying both as a mystery and a work of history.

Confederacy of Dunces - book cover picture

The world of Ignatius Reily is very erratic but it is easy to identify with him. You are going to hate him at too many places in the story, yet there is something genuine about him. He does the most awful kind of things, but you never know whether he is doing that intentionally, full mindedly, absent mindedly or it just a part of his highly intellectual mideval, semi-selfish almost unemployed negligent personality.Apart from Ignatius Reily, there are more characters in the novel that are very genuine. I believe that genuinity of the personages gives a lot of vitality to the story.It is amazing to see that this book was written almost 30 years ago, but it is still very modern and the situation of Ignatius is absolutely not unusual to see at the beginning of the 21st century.If you like to read a book in order to think read this. If you do like to read a book NOT to think you can also read this because readability and having fun with the story are warranted.

Monsoon Diary: A Memoir With Recipes - book cover picture

Shoba Narayan's narrative of her life in India, journeys and experiences in the States and her subsequent marriage are a wonderful read. I particularly enjoyed the ending, I found myself laughing out loud a number of times with visions of my own family and relatives.

I've yet to try any of the recipes, but they are certainly on my 'must try' list.

I recommend this book to anyone that has even the slightest interest in the cultures of India, the food or just life experiences in general.
