The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

This is not your average bodice-ripping romance novel. Instead, it is an emotional, passionate, and entirely satisfying tale of a man's struggle to free himself from his unhappy childhood and the father who never accepted him. The emotions in this book seemed real, not wooden, and there was believeable character growth on both ends of the romance.I would heartily recommend this book to all comers. It is both sweet and sensual, with fairly smooth writing and a fast pace. I was pulled right along, and I loved every minute of it!

Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought - book cover picture

For years, I was not exactly fan of so-called Artifitially
Intelligent people (pun intended). I know some of them and
although I respect them, they don't deserve all the talk
that is spread around them. But it looks like there are few
true scientists that are trying to find how to make
computers think - namely Douglas Hoftstadter and his
associates. Douglas, thanks for this book. You restored my
confidence into field of AI.

I Am Jackie Chan : My Life in Action - book cover picture

Jackie Chan's book predominantly tells the story of his childhood growing up in Hong Kong, but this does nothing to take away from the end result of having read it; a greater respect for this stuntman, actor, etc. who has changed the face of Asian cinema.For those who wonder what he could have to say besides listing his injuries, consider these examples: his impressions of working with Bruce Lee; run-ins with the Asian mafia; his insights into differences between Hong Kong and Hollywood film making; and the startling relationship he has with the star of 'Martial Law' that provides a surprise ending.Far from a 'the making of my movies' book, Jackie Chan offers a person-to-person narrative that sounds like a long, friendly chat with your neighbour.

Simply Tuscan : Recipes for a Well-Lived Life - book cover picture

Do NOT be intimidated - I am barely starting to do more than very basic cooking and the cuisine of Tuscany is my favorite. The instructions are clear, I had with me a friend who is a very good cook and this book worked for us both, doesn't talk down to you and it doesn't make you feel like an idiot.Perfect timing, too - start with summer and spring recipes, I find those not only more appropriate but a bit easier.

The Voice of the Village is still in tune

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

The first time I ever read anything by Mr. Hamill was in the Village Voice in the mid sixties, and I believed at the time, here's a guy that gets it. This novel reinforces that belief. His prose is eloquent and very readable, his tale is magical, gripping and a thoroughly fascinating trip through the history of New York City and Mr. Cormac O'Connor. Cormac, or any of the other names he goes by throughout his unending life, is a character we can identify with, admire, and appreciate.
I will not encapsulate the novel here, read the Amazon review for that, just buy this book and hear Mr. Hamill hit all the right notes. Bravo!!!

how can you be so removed from everything

Book title: The Reader
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Reader - book cover picture

I thought this was an excellent, quick read on a topic I, as an American, certainly haven't pondered in great depth. One thing that struck me most about the book was how removed Micheal is from virtually everything in his life. He reports on everything in a most dispassionate way - his near fatal illness, his affair with Hannah, the trial (he doesn't even become outraged at the ineffective assistance of her counsel), law school, his relationship with his father, his marriage, etc. For example, look how he went to the judge and could never bring himself to talk to the judge about Hanna and the episode instead focuses on how the judge is just a civil servant after all. I would have thought that any or all of these events would have produced more passion. Oprah continues to do a great job of picking good books on thought provoking topics and getting Americans to READ!

Great, thought-provoking novel

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

My ex-girlfriend suggested The Truth Machine to me. I am sure she ment it as a slight but then I happened to see it and picked it up, and I am glad she said that. I don't believe I have ever felt more empathy for a literary character than I did for Petey. As far as relationships are concerned, hey, take the thought of whether or not you can trust a person out of the equation. Wouldn't it be nice to scip the salesman the next time you get a new car? However some questions should never be scipped; Do you think these jeans make me look fat? Who do you think is a better cook me or your mother? Perhaps a white-lie tolerance should be allowed. Or hopefully people will learn not to ask those kinds of questions.

Hands of Life : An Energy Healer Reveals the Secrets of Using Your Body's Own Energy Medicine for Healing, Recovery and Transformation - book cover picture

As a serious alternative healer, myself, I approach books on the subject with some cynicism, concerned about writers who might take advantage of the public's desire for magical answers. Unlike other authors who only pretend a mastery of such subjects as energy medicine, however, Julie Motz is the real thing! With a stunning blend of candor, brilliance, surprising theory and examples of her technique that are both breath-taking and clearly applicable to our lives, Julie Motz provides important, even life-saving, original answers to healing issues . I wanted to underline the whole book, it was so full of insight and inspiration. Read this and find out what the medical profession has yet to learn: that we are mind/bodies that respond to energy medicine in ultimate, transformative ways.

Number the Stars - book cover picture

When this book won the Newberry Medal in 1990, I was the same age as Annamarie and her friend. I wondered night and day how I would feel if I were one of them. A lot of people think that 10 year olds are too young to learn about the Holocaust, but this book taught me a lot about human nature and made me much more cognizant of recent history and sparked me to find out more about this period of history.
