Jemima J - book cover picture

Jane Green captures the spirit of the overweight woman with such grace in this novel. I am now a huge fan of this author, as she is able to get deep inside the horror of being a young, overweight woman dealing with the prejudices of a "thin" society. This book keeps you guessing, and it is impossible to put down. You will find yourself both cheering and crying for Jemima, who is an inspiration to the ugly ducklings of the world.....

Blacklist (V.I. Warshawski Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

For those fellow fans of Paretsky, I have waited a long time for her to submit another novel featuring Vic. This is one you won't want to put down. While she has followed in the steps of many authors these days using 9-11 as a backdrop for her novel she does at least attempt to be fair and just and not just politically correct. The characters and storyline are one of her best. Highly recommend.

The meaning of 'democracy'

Book title: Marx, Engels, and Liberal Democracy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Marx, Engels, and Liberal Democracy - book cover picture

This work is an essential history of the usage of the term 'democracy' as this crystalized in the era of the 1840's leaving Marx and Engels stranded with a series of acute but now misleading assertions and critiques of its meaning and actual content. The more is the pity since these views of Marx and Engels were at the onset far more democratic than those who fixed the word's meaning. Small wonder a legacy of bitterness festers here. To this is added the unfortunate confusion over the term, 'dictatorship of the proletariat, and the thinking of Marx is indeed ambiguous in this regard. The perceptions of those passing through the revolutions of 1848 are hard to reconstruct, as the brief alliance of classes led to the victory of one and the betrayal of the rest. This factor is what is responsible for the mistruct of 'democracy so-called'in the name of democracy in Marx and Engels, in a period before universal suffrage was an intrinsic part of the word 'democracy'.

World Press Photo 1999 - book cover picture

The quality of World Press Photos is getting better each year, but the subjects entering and dominating each category is also changing (toward more human-aspects, dailylife and war, less politics) and there is an enormous difference between the WPP from the 19-eighties and I think this edition (2000) is the best ever, even better than 2001. Some professional Danish photographers dominate this Millenium-edition with war-photos from several places on The Balkan so emotional that I?ve cried over some photographs for the first time ..... the best photobook on my shelf. Looking foreward to see what will enter from this sorrowfull autumn.

Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud - book cover picture

I LOVE reading this book to my kids, and they love it, too. It's not too long, great illustrations, and I swear I know that grandma. The family is off to town for the day but the farm animals are in the road. One by one, the whole family tries to get them out of the way. Finally granny says, "Shoowee, up to me!" and gets the job done by calling out "Time for sup!" She gets covered in mud by the stampeding animals, but she's off to town anyway. Must be read enthusiastically.

The Ladies Auxiliary: A Novel - book cover picture

After I got used to the use of third person plural (we), I was a gonner for this story of southern Jewish Orthodox life which can be insular yet friendly, by Barnard grad, Tova Mirvis, 27, who was raised in a frum household in East Memphis. The nuances of community, like the woman who keeps unkosher shrimp in her home, or the ladies who share incorrect recipes add to the story. go girl!

The Lonely Londoners (Longman Caribbean Writers Series) - book cover picture

"The Lonely Londoners" is my favorite book of all time! With this purchase, I would have bought a total of five(5) copies. The other four however, have gone to the "loaned-a-friend-and-never-got-it-b ack" graveyard in the sky.Selvon's account of West Indian immigramt life in 50's/60's London is riveting, poignant and tearfully funny. With realism and timeliness, he captures the unique brotherhood of survival that was the lifeblood of the network that sprung up in Brixton.Wait until you meet "Tall Boy" as he greets his family at the boat train at Paddington. "All of we come...!"

Storming Heaven - book cover picture

I bought Mills' first book Rising Pheonix during a business trip to Washington, and after reading it I could not wait for a return trip to buy Storming Heaven, which I have now read and eagerly await the third installment of Mark Beamon. Storming Heaven is one of the best and well written thrillers I have read. I thought it was a courageous subject to tackle and handled brilliently. Mills is going from strength to strength and I await his next title with child-like impatience.

The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth - book cover picture

I am contemplating parenthood right now and I am looking for a birth experience that is very different than what most of my friends and family have gone through. Although I knew that alternatives were out there, I was distrustful because of the dominant medical model that we are so accustomed to in this country. Because of this book, my fears of alternative birthing are significantly reduced and I will definately seek out a freestanding birth center when the time comes for my husband and I. Henci Goer has done an excellent job of compiling medical research and presenting it in a clear, straitforward, and convincing fashion. She has done a tremendous service to childbearing women.

PHANTOM - book cover picture

This is probably one of the best books I have read. I couldn't put it down and looked forward to the next time I would pick it up. You are captured from beginning to end. I always like "Phantom of the Opera", the book and broadway production but this book starts from the beginning, Erik, as a child. You don't see Erik as a monster but a tortured soul, needy of love. I love the book, you won't regret the money you spend on it. I have read it twice already.
