Sympathy for the Devil - book cover picture

The book, Sypathy for the Devil, is about as honest a book as I have ever read. This is not a book about what a "great Killer I am". This simply tells the story of a man that changed in Vietnam because he had to to survive. Anderson is just telling readers how the war really was. I have read this book six times and highly recommend it for those who have been in the service, are in the service, or who will be in the service.

Dune (Dune Chronicles (Econo-Clad Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Frank Herbert's Dune Chronicles are a must-have 6 editions for any science fiction/fantasy fan. I just re-read Dune for about the 4th time, and plan on going through each of the following editions again. I'm a fan of sci-fi works that are very rich in plot, character population and total immersion into alternate worlds. Dune does it for me in so many ways. But very basically it puts me into the universe of Dune so deeply that I can see it in my mind, I can live it. It is visceral in nature. Not many books, sci-fi or otherwise, can do that to me. I think that Herbert's mastery in creating this alternate place so imaginatively, with so many layers and history and visualization and mythology and religion and philosophy and psychology, so convincingly is key to the popularity of Dune. And come on, who can resist the desert dwellers riding the wild worms? Like, totally rad! I also discovered just yesterday that there will be a Dune miniseries on the Sci-fi Channel in December. Can't wait!

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir of a Childhood - book cover picture

I listened to the unabridged recording of this book on my way to and from work, and could hardly wait to get to the car for more! This book is without a doubt the best I have read this year, if not one of the best I have ever read. In fact, I bought a copy of the hardcover to add it to my shelf of favorites. Listening to Frank McCourt himself read his own words was a wonderful way to experience this book. The lilting accent, the voices he used for his father, mother, brothers, teachers, and priests, and his singing undoubtedly added to my enjoyment of his book. Powerful and uplifting, it made me laugh and cry. I can only hope for a sequel; I want to know more.

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly - book cover picture

This is a true to life book. As a Culinary professional for the past ten years finally achieving rank as chef recently, I can honestly say I have either witnessed or lived the same kind of lifestyle. i recommend this book for anyone considering entering this great field, especially these over zealous career changers who want to be in it for the "GLORY". 99% of the time, it does not exist. The best book I have ever read. Finally, the REAL truth about our lifestyles. Thanks Chef Bourdain.

If You Haven't Read It Yet, Run Out and Get it!

The Hero and the Crown - book cover picture

This is really an excellent book. Although it may be confusing at times (McKinley makes up a lot of terms that fit her fantasy world, but are, unfortunately, not in the dictionary), it is well worth the confusion because everything sorts itself out in the end. The characters are heartfelt and tragic, and the themes play with ideas of honor, valor, and self-sacrifice. I don't even read science fiction! It is quite an accomplishment...This book is not only plot driven, but character-driven as well. You really become personally invested in them, especially the lead character Aerin. Run, don't stop, to get this!

The crown of all mythology books out there


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

This book is hot, it kicks, it rocks, it rules. Can't say it enough; this is phenomenal storytelling, this is pure unsullied love for classic myth, this is beautiful. You cannot find a more complete source than this. All the stories are there, all the details, every little insignificant character. You want animated tale-spinning, you have it here. All the passion and the morals and the humour and the fire and the history and the charm and the beauty and the mystery...collected into this single volume. It's a crime not to read it.

Childhood abuse/Morality


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

Read this wonderfull book in one sitting. But I found it easier to place fault in Hannah. (Although it is skillfull writting to see how being in love makes it hard to condemn someone of a crime they committed.) She does not seem as innocent as some here have stated...and none have commented on how she "ruins" Michael for any future healthy relationships. If she had met him in the camps..she would have sent him away to die. Would I have done the same if I were her, in the same place...ie: allow the women to die in the camp? I hope not but who knows? But if I did...I am guilty and so is she.

Power of One - book cover picture

This will be the first of many reviews so I will keep it short. I have given away 1,038 copies of this book. Why? Because I wish that everyone I know can have the unique experience that reading this extraordinary piece of writing brings. People ask me what it's about. I reply, "We are made to survive the worst. Every day some of the most astoundingly wonderful things happen. Without any hocus-pocus. It's about real life. That's all.(!)" Happy reading!

Inspirational and intelligent, great sci-fi work.


Book title: The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress - book cover picture

While the theme of "Stranger in a Strange Land" seemed to be more towards world peace, "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" is a futuristic tale of the Moon's population revolting against the earth to gain its own independance. While Heinlin is well known for his keen political sense, he also displays his in depth knowledge of human nature throughout the novel. It's no wonder this one is already a classic.

Too good to put down!

Binding: Paperback
The Nanny Diaries: A Novel - book cover picture

This book was simply impossible to put down. If even half of what these girls have written is true to some extent, then I feel sorry for every wealthy kid that grows up without a truly nurturing family. Kids will form memories around the times they spent with their family, not the gifts and the toys they recieved.
This tell all is a great summer read. It will make you laugh out loud. I could not put it down and finished it in the same day I started it. I can smell a movie adaptation, can you?
