Joey is fictional but the tale is a real look at ADD

Joey Pigza Loses Control (Joey Pigza Books (Paperback)) - book cover picture

It was refreshing to read what felt like the truth about the life of Joey, an ADD boy; how he thinks, acts and feels about his medication, and just as important, Joey's father's reaction to it. All too often our boys are told to be men by men that don't know what that means themselves.
I liked Joey's mother. She didn't want to let go, but did, yet was wise enough to be there for her son when needed. And of course the dog is wonderful. The episode with the dog and the glove compartment was very funny. All of this accompanied by real life thoughts, emotions and dialogue.

What the hell are people for?

GOD BLESS YOU, MR. ROSEWATER - book cover picture

Kilgore Trout's novel -- 2br02b -- boldly ask the question "What the hell are people for?" Vonnegut offers an answer in this book. His protaganist Eliot Rosewater, struggles for meaning in a world obsessed by money, greed and prestige. (Sound familiar?) Yet Eliot is able to hold his course. I strongly recommend this book to reluctant cynics and others looking for a witty, well written novel about the nature of human beings.

I have been looking for this book for years. When my house burned down my copy was saved, but without the cover and first few pages. I didn't remember the title and am so excited that I finally found it. This is a must read for anyone of any age. Reading it brings back so many wonderful memories. My boys' favorites are Wynken Blynken and Nod and the tale of Custard the Dragon. I highly recommend this to any one.

Guns, Germs and Steel : A Short History of Everbody for the Last 13000 Years - book cover picture

I can't add much here that reviewers before me haven't touched upon. Truely unique interwoven account of history and science. I'm not really a "science guy" but more of a history buff and I found this to be a great pre-text for history. If you like American or European history, this book is a great way to fill in some of the mystery between the start of civilization and the modern establishment of nation states. Some people have found fault with pedantic aspects of the book but I found these easy to brush aside. It drags a bit toward the end but it's a surprisingly quick read.

The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

I first read this book as a junior in High School; now a year later I've read it 11+ times! I too was struggling with life, and trying to transcend society and its hollow materialistic values. After I read this book, and others by the author, I decided to leave Lutheranism, for Buddhism. It has helped me greatly. At the time I first read the book thte weight of the hypocracy I saw around me was staggering, and I was struggling to fight off an impending nervous breakdown. Im a saved person because of this book. Thank you JD Salinger, wherever you are....

Reality strikes the simpleness of country living.

Book title: Tex
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Tex - book cover picture

Though "The Outsiders" was the first book of S.E. Hinton's that I read, "Tex" remains (along with Kerouac's "On the Road") my favorite novel of all time. There is simplicity here--you believe Tex's soft-headedness by his inner perceptions. In a style slightly comparable to Laura Ingalls Wilder, Hinton delivers a version of life in the country--and this is its greatest appeal, the thing that makes a reader curl up in bed with it night after night, disappearing again into the open sunny farmlands of Oklahoma. More than any other novel, "Tex" delivers the age-old teen truth--that everything will change, even if you won't. Change is everything to teens, and this is their Book of Lesson. I took this book to college, and its message of accepting change was, for obvious reasons, a coming-of-age comfort. I hope teens across the globe share in the heart of "Tex".

CALL IT COURAGE - book cover picture

The story of Mafatu's adventure on the isle of the eaters of men is unforgettable. Some 30 years ago I first encountered this book in my elementary school library and it remains vivid in my memory. It is the story of a young boy, Mafatu, who lives on an island yet fears the sea that killed his mother years ago. Mafatu decides to face his greatest and deepest fear--the sea--and sets off on an adventure, ending up not only conquering his fear of the sea but successfully confronting such life-threatening challenges as a hammerhead shark, a sharp-tusked wild boar and, finally, angry man-eating islanders. It is the kind of story where just when you think things can't get worse, they do. But Mafatu finds out that he is able to overcome every challenge and returns to his home island in triumph.

Mafatu's story should be required reading for children preparing to face a world every bit as dangerous as the open ocean and filled with hazards no less serious than sharks and cannibals.

A highly informative insider's view

JonBenet : Inside the Murder Investigation - book cover picture

This book is well-written for its genre, and highly informative of both the Boulder justice system and heretofore unknown facts in this case. Although I disagree with Mr. Thomas' conclusion as to the identity of the murderer (in fact, this book reinforces my belief in the identity of the actual killer, the subsequent cover-up by the parents, and possibly the motivation behind the behavior of Alex Hunter), his insights and empirical information about the ransom note, the malfeasance and duplicity of the Boulder District Attorney and his office is enlightening, frustrating, and frightening.Thomas' book did everything a book is supposed to do: It entertained me, it informed me, it caused me to think about what was written, and it prompted discussions about its content.

Summer Sisters - book cover picture

I chose this book because I had read Judy Blume's "Wifey" many years ago and remembered how entertaining that was. My husband and I were heading to Cancun and I needed something to read on the plane. It definitely made the 3 hour flight from Chicago to Miami bearable. I felt like I was living two adventures. Ms. Blume has a wonderful way of drawing you in and making you care about the characters.
