Really Cute Corpse:  A Claire Malloy Mystery - book cover picture

Joan Hess captured a new and devoted reader with her mystery, A Really Cute Corpse. Using Claire Malloy, an appealing female investigator who is both wise and witty, Hess side-steps blood and violence and focuses on character developement and humor--attractive components to female readers of any age.A consumate Dorothy Gilman fan (author of the Mrs. Pollifax series and other delightful books) I now search the H authors on each trip to the library--hoping to find a new Joan Hess book on the shelf. Hess has not created a leading character as lady-like as Mrs. Marple, nor as totally charming as Emily Pollifax, but certainly her women are emotionally strong, mentally awesome, and career-wise down-to-earth, as women of the 90's must be.

The world's changed, but Gibson hasn't. And I'm glad.


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

Shakespeare had no more than six stories in him. Hemingway managed four or five; Twain just two. William Gibson has only one: innocent youth finds strange object whose owners try to get it back.
So don't read "Idoru" for the plot or the characters. Read it to hear Gibson's language in your ear, those words that scorch across page after page and keep you turning and turning and never let you go. Read it for the metallic tang each sentence creates in your mouth, the smell of bunt dust it forces into your nostrils, the pictures it paints so vividly over your frontal lobes that you can even see the bugs in the corner and the cracks in the concrete.
Gibson is a poet, not a novelist. Read "Idoru" for the sound it makes on paper, and you can't help but rock and roll with it. Pure poetic punk

A good second novel from Selvadurai.


Book title: Cinnamon Gardens: A Novel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Cinnamon Gardens: A Novel - book cover picture

Once again, Selvadurai brings us into Ceylon society in a very human way. The relationships in this novel--heterosexual and homosexual--are subtle, complicated, and poignant. It is this aspect of Selvadurai's writing that I admire most. He has the ability to create relationships that are accessible and personally relevant to all types of readers. Selvadurai also writes about loose ends and dangling threads-some are picked up later in life, while others move away from the story. He avoids romantic endings, and allows the characters to move in directions that resist closure at the end of the story (Anna, for example). In some ways, the idea that their lives go on, to stories we don't know, is refreshing.All in all, a good read. I recommend either one of Selvadurai's novels.

Internetworking with TCP/IP Vol.1: Principles, Protocols, and Architecture (4th Edition) - book cover picture

I recently applied for a Network Engineering position at a large International company. My technical interviewer was looking for specific fundamental knowledge of IP, TCP, Switching Protocols, IP Routing, and Network Design. The interviewer, a twenty year veteran in the industry, was geniunely impressed with the almost verbatim answers I gave him. This book has enough depth to give you an edge in attaining a contemporary Networking Design or Support position (in addition to having some hands-on experience, of course). To this day, the principles for my design and support problem solving skills still revolve around this reference. It is a must have for any Networking Professional (novice and advanced alike), especially when you need the irrefutable OSI Layer 2-4 knowledge to "get into" or "out of" most Networking Situations.

The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night - book cover picture

Everyone was telling me that I created my baby's sleep problems and that I should put her in a crib and allow her to cry to sleep. Even if it was my fault she was awake every hour I could never let her cry like that. I am so thankful I found this book. Not only does it have an endless supply of ideas sorted by age and type (such as for cosleeping or crib sleeping) it is so warm and friendly to read. Pantley keeps reassuring you that everything will be fine and that in the long run you'll be proud you didn't cave in to letting your baby cry. I very highly recommend this lovely book.

Lords and Ladies (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

I loved this book. Granny, Nanny and Magrat are as always the funniest trio ever. Granny is such a badnatured evil minded old witch that in the end always triumphs over evil anyway. I like that even tho she is the heroine in all these books, she is not a leading lady type of person. Nanny is just the funniest dirty old man in an old woman's body that ever was. She has about 20 kids and who knows how many grandkids. She has LIVED and it shows on her face and body. Magrat is the wettest noodle in the pasta pot as Granny would put it. However, she has her kicka** moments that are all the more funny because of the way she usually acts. This book was great. Usally elves are portrayed as sweet and light. Well, leave it to Terry to make them the opposite and still have the best time letting Granny, Nanny and co. kick butt. I love all Terry Pratchett's books but the witch books are my favorite of all time.

Eker does good work


Book title: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth
Rating: 5/5

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth - book cover picture

As you read through Eker's book, you realize that intuitively you might have "felt" some of these things all along but DIDn't follow through.

I very much enjoyed this book. It's certainly one of the better books about building wealth and I think that everyone can benefit from it regardless of their current level of income.

For $20 it's hard to ask for much more than the dozens of nuggets of wisdom you get and can use in real life. My rule of thumb is that if you get one idea from a book it's worth five stars and a thousand dollars. That puts this book up there pretty high.

Enjoy.

The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - book cover picture

"The Princess Bride" by S. Morgenstern is one of the most compelling and adventurous books I have ever read. The character developments and story lines are simply outstanding and have always captured my imagination, no matter how many times I have read the book.Simply, this book is amazing. The story revolves around WEsley and Buttercup, two lover, who are separated when Wesley sails to America to find work so he can marry his love. But fate takes a hand when his Ship is attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts, and he is killed. Buttercup had married another in five years upon Wesley's return to her. But it was really untrue and they live happily ever after, even with the help of a giant, a spaniard, and a cast of fairy tale horrors.
