The Black Cauldron (Pyrdain Chronicles) - book cover picture

This is a fun book to read, though it sometimes may seem a bit dark and foreboding. Adults as well as children can learn deep values from the tale that Alexander spins around the Black Cauldron. The willingness for self-sacrifice for a greater goal that it portrays should be an inspiration to all who read it. But it also reminds us of pride's downfall. I personally love what is said about Adaon's Brooch -- how if you bring love, wisdom, and truth together you will be a person that will have a great impact on those around you, even if you don't do anything exceptionally great. Enjoy the book, oh, and by the way, if you read it, don't watch the Disney cartoon. It kind of mangles the story.

Faith development from infancy to adulthood

Book title: Your Child's Faith
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Your Child's Faith - book cover picture

Dr. Stephens has written an important book about the developmental process of faith, not only for parents, or those working in children ministries but for everyone interested in the factors critical for strong faith foundations. My interest is in mid-late adult development and the factors that contribute to resilience at this stage in life. What Dr. Stephens writes about faith development in the early stages of life is critical to our understanding of faith and its role later in life. His work, coupled with that of John Westerhoff and James Fowler, creates a critical framework for understanding both the context and construct of faith at the various stages of human life-span development

A book for young and old.

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Horse Whisperer - book cover picture

The Horse Whisperer was the best book I have ever read in my life. Wether you are horse lover or not, young or old you also will love this book. Nicholas Evans did a great job writing this book. He wrote it like you were right there experiencing everthing along with Grace, Pilgrim, Annie, Tom and everyone else. The part where Tom was working with Pilgrim was the best. He even helped me out with my horse. We get along so much better now. This book captured my heart and soul and I hope it captures yours also. I hope you love every minute of it. I know it won't take you long to read it because I could never put it down. This was one book I looked forward to read every night. I wish it would have never ended.

Robert E Howard's undiluted vision

The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian (Conan of Cimmeria, Book 1) - book cover picture

I can give this nothing but 5 stars. Any real Conan fan is going to buy this knowing it is Howard's stories and none of the overly edited, or pastiche stories. Simply put, his stories as he wrote them, of one of the most enduring characters of fantasy fiction about eight decades on. Something entirely deserving of the hardcover format. The illustrations harken back to the pulp style. The publishers definately picked the right illustrator. I would venture, any real fan of fantasy literature, particularly Heroic-fantasy would want this to go next to similar volumes of Moorcock's Elric or Corum novels, and Lieber's Swords series. Those not familiar with Howard's original stories should not expect the comic-bookishness of the later Marvel comics series, or the High-fantasy of Tolkien and others. This is heroic-fantasy. Among the best, the most relevant to the development of the genre of Heroic-fantasy.

Gabaldon's done it again!!

Book title: The Fiery Cross
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Fiery Cross - book cover picture

Am shocked by the negative reviews here as I found 'The Fiery Cross' to be a real page turner from beginning to end. Was particularly pleased by the way Roger's character was fleshed out and, as a result, he's now one of my favorite characters. As the old saying goes, "there are as many opinions as there are people" ... and, in spite of that, I find it hard to believe that anyone could read this novel and not be captivated by it. In my opinion, Gabaldon's done it again ... and masterfully at that!

Asimov's Chronology of the World - book cover picture

Most history books I've read have been boring and a chore to read. This one I can hardly put down; I keep staying up way too late reading it; I look something up, and then look back to see what happened beforehand or what happened afterward, or I check to see what Japan was up to during WWI, etc. This book could easily have been a dry listing of names and dates, like most textbooks (especially given the enormous scope of the book), but Asimov does a wonderful job of helping the reader to identify the significant events and why they are significant, and to follow trends and threads in history by linking effects to their causes. His editorial commentary is fun too;like when he calls Italy's performance in WWII "comic relief". I learned more from this book than from some of the history classes I've taken.

Every pet owner should read this informative book!!

Dogs Behaving Badly : An A-To-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavioral Problems in Dogs - book cover picture

This is an easy-to-read, yet very informative book which details problems every pet owner will encounter, particularly those whose pets exhibit behavior problems. The first part of the book details the problems and an appendix gives suggested behavioral approaches to "undo" these problems in a pet. I have a "fearful" dog, who after reading this book, was taken to a veterinarian for a hypothyroidism test. It seems this may play a BIG part of this personality problem and medication may help control it. We would never have known this without reading this helpful book! Thank you, Dr. Dodman!!!

Einstein's Dreams - book cover picture

I have read this amazing book no less than 4 times. The firsttime I couldn't put it down and read right through. The second time,I read one chapter at a time (pun intended), thinking and rethinking. And each time since it just makes me smile.Lightman's ability to create a tableau around the scene he describes is nothing less than magical. As you begin to read this thought-provoking little treasure, you quickly realize that either Lightman or Einstein is there with you, and you are not reading. You are being read to.If you like to think about time and the world, this book will blow your mind. If you just love reading wonderful books and discovering amazing new ways to look at the world, you will hug this one to your breast and re-read it as many times as I have.The chapter that describes time running backwards is still a favorite cocktail party conversation for me. And drives everyone I know to find this book and read every chapter.

The Solitaire Mystery: a novel about family and destiny - book cover picture

Jostein Gaarder has simply produced another great piece of literature superceded Sophie's World. Its dramatic plot is intelligently weaved. The first person viewpoint of the little boy has captured readers' imagination posing themselves into the story. The echo and reflection of the history of the three generations, and the metaphors of the game of solitaire and the joker are philosophically attractive to audience who have already infected by his ideology of "Who we are?" and "Where we are?" from the Sophie's World.

De profundis

Book title: Voice of the Poet: Plath
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Voice of the Poet: Plath - book cover picture

There are poems here to warm your heart, and others to chill your blood. The 1957 poem "Sow" is a fulsome celebration of the muddiness and bloodiness of thriving, procreating life, redolent of the optimistic romanticism of Wordsworth or Robert Graves. When we get to the later recordings, on side two, the poet's nerve ends are raw-exposed. "Daddy", with its dark and terrible imagery - "Every woman adores a fascist, the boot in the face..." - makes you wonder exactly how her father, who died when she was a child, behaved toward her. That and "Lady Lazarus" are about as dark as poetry can get. Not every poet is the best reader of their work, but Plath conveys her agony in these recordings in a way that surely no one else could do. If you are prepared to probe the very centres of poetic pain, get this tape.
