Journalistic Investigation into puzzling murder

Perfect Murder, Perfect Town - book cover picture

Schiller of Simpson trial fame, here does the same thorough and probing look at the Jon Benet Ramsey case.Looking at as much data and angles as he can, Schiller presents a case for the unusual combination of a perfectly staged murder coupled with a town's incapacity to investigate and prosecute a trial of this magnitude and national spotlight.Whether one agrees or not with the observations and data interpretation that the author reaches, reading this work does get one contemplating the case. Certainly one can challenge the data, process and Schiller's deductions and insights, but this does offer each reader the benefit of Schiller's massive undertaking and cataloguing of the case.I enjoyed this read.

Sophie's World : A Novel About the History of Philosophy - book cover picture

Sophie's Welt is a novel approach to what has long been a decidedly academic realm of thought: philosophy. It is, as the titles states, a novel about the history of philosophical investigation. This is the first novel by Norwegian professor Jostein Gaarder, who has since quit his profession as a teacher and today reaches a larger, global audience through his novels. 15-year old Sofie Amundson receives a letter in the mail from an unknown man and embarks on a journey through centuries of philosophical inquiry in the form of what is almost a correspondence course. To tell more about the plot would be to ruin the entire book for new readers, so I will leave it at that. Be careful when reading other reviews that may not be so considerate!I recommend it especially to young people who are first beginning to question the human condition and the universe, but readers of all ages can enjoy the unexpected plot twists and manipulations.

Londo's Long Fall

The Long Night of Centauri Prime (Babylon 5: Legions of Fire, Book 1) - book cover picture

Londo was often considered the favorite character on the show, mainly because of his many facts. You could love, hate, cheer for, and want to strangle him--often within the same episode. That same feeling is evoked in this book.We already know the outcome, so it is like warching a train wreck you know you can't stop as the Drahk use Centauri Prime for their plan to destroy the Interstellar Alliance and President Sheridan. This first novel in the trilogy speeds us along this tragic path.Peter David's trademark style and humor are evident here, so fans of his comic book and Star Trek work should check it this entire trilogy. For B5 fans, it's a must.

Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief - book cover picture

Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief is a fabulous book that any child would love. The novel is about Sammy Keyes and the case of the hotel thief. While peeking with her binoculars at the hotel next door from her apartment building, she sees a thief in action. But the thief then sees her. So begins the case of the hotel thief. She knew she shouldn't have been spying; so it was her fault that the robber saw her. I won't give away any more information except that this novel is a must read and will be loved by all. Buy and enjoy this novel by Wendelin Van Draanen and be sure to try some other Sammy Keyes novels too.HAPPY READING!

Life, right?

One Hundred Years of Solitude (Oprah's Book Club) - book cover picture

Essentially a beautifully painted vision of tragic people all tangled up in soap opera -- a splendid and heartbreaking saga peopled with characters you may think at first to be quirky, until you hear them breathe. I also recommend Garcia-Marquez's beautiful LIFE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA.And to experience real life just as magically strange and spooky and over-stuffed with drama, I suggest you read Peter Hillary's IN THE GHOST COUNTRY, a real-life ghost story starring the famous son of a living legend. Wild and moving stuff.

Want to know how to eat somebody?

In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex - book cover picture

Nathaniel Philbrick is not a squeamish man, and most readers (including me) will remember the...uh...culinary sections of this book long after the rest has faded away.The book's title is slightly misleading: while Philbrick does detail the story of the Essex, he spends large sections of the book setting the background with a discussion of the whaling industry and contemporary seafaring in general. This information is fascinating (if you don't care about eating anyone, perhaps you want to know how to process a whale carcass?), but often tangential to the story, and readers shouldn't expect a Jon-Krakauer-style narrative that grabs you by the collar on page one and never lets you go. But I still loved the book and would heartily recommend it to anyone.

THE definitive argument against government

Book title: Road to Serfdom
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Road to Serfdom - book cover picture

A better argument against "the socialists of all parties" could not be made. In this masterpiece, Hayek lays out brilliantly and convincingly why ANY attempt to centralize decision making with government is at best a small step down "The Road to Serfdom." Hayek skewers the--even now--widespread notion that society can legislate its way to a better world. Supporters of both "the right" and "the left" can't help but see their faulty logic countered by the reasoned arguments of this book.

My first experience with Franklin - and I'm hooked.

Franklin in the Dark (My First Franklin Book Board Book) - book cover picture

I enjoyed this book myself (a 40-yr-old with no children), and had my 7-yr-old nephew read it to me when he visited. He found it easy enough to read and understand at the same time, but with just enough challenge. Franklin is a delightful turtle who faces everyday things, like being afraid of small, dark places. As he looks for help, he discovers that other friends have fears of everyday things as well. Very sensitively written, humor appropriate for 4- to 8-year-olds.

One of the most informative books about child abduction

Book title: Kidnapped: Child Abduction in America
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Kidnapped: Child Abduction in America - book cover picture

If you're really interested in missing children and child kidnappings, like I am, this is definately the book for you. It begins with the heartbreaking 1874 ransom abduction of Charley Ross from Pennsylvania. His father refused to pay the ransom, not because he didn't love his son, but because he thought kidnappers should not profit from their crime. Charley never returned home. The next chapter is about the Lindbergh baby, then Leopold and Loeb, and so on. It ends with modern kidnappings: Etan Patz, Kevin Collins and Polly Klaas. There's also a chapter on parental abduction. In other words, this book is very extensive.While it's a very "academic" book, it's not dull like a textbook. I found it very entertaining, with a nice centerfold of photographs. This book should definately have a place on anybody's true crime shelf.
