The Other Side of the Story : A Novel (Keyes, Marian) - book cover picture

I've liked all of Marian Keyes' books, but I loved this one so much I tore through it in a day. At first the shifting perspectives bothered me, but soon I grew to love all three characters, and genuinely cared about what happened to them.Keyes does a truly excellent job of weaving together their stories. There is never the event I was dreading - some major calamity that brings them all together into some enormous brawl. Instead, the intersections and parallels of their lives are far more subtle, and their highs and lows are nicely timed with each other's.It's nice to see that sometimes chick lit can be truly intelligent.

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

This book is not just a novel, it's a work of literature. The story follows a young woman from early adolescence through divorce, rape, death, obesity, rejection, and ultimate rebirth. Please, don't let me scare you off with all the horrible happenings that this book exposes, it's really quite uplifting. The character's search for acceptance, for self-awareness, and for love is so amazing that I garuntee that those who give it a chance will walk away from it refreshed and hopeful.

Lord Foul's Bane (The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, Book 1) - book cover picture

This book along with the Sword of Shannara by T. Brooks, are what hooked me to SF and Fantasy my senior year of high school. That was 1980. I've loved reading ever since. I personally think the first Donaldson trilogy is the best ever writen. Yes, even better than Tolkien. I've read the series twice and I'm sure I will read it again. It's pure fantasy, a pure joy to read. It's one of the first books I mention for someone who hasn't read fantasy to read, to get them hooked as I was. On a scale of 1 - 5 it's really a 6!

King's Finest

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

The Stand explores a nightmare vision of a post-apocalyptic America and it will draw you in from the beginning. This was a book I read in three days because I could not put it down. The plot and characters are believable enough that you will be left wondering, "What if...?" for weeks.The U.S. government unintentionally releases a virus on the world that kills 99% of the human population and an empty shell of civilization is left behind for the survivors to resurrect. People are drawn to darkness, embodied by the creepy Randall Flagg, or light, embodied by a 108 year-old black woman in Nebraska, based on the deepest instincts of their souls. The conflict between these camps captures King's vision of good vs. evil in his most powerful way.Can Amazon lend me a few extra stars? I can't recommend this book highly enough with the five I have here.

Riveting, Compelling, Satisfying.

The Poisonwood Bible - book cover picture

"The Poisonwood Bible" is without a doubt the best book I have read all year. I was completely engrossed with this epic story, and thoroughly enjoyed every word. I am the oldest child in my family with seven siblings, five of whom are girls, and I could relate so well to the personalities reflected in Rachel, Leah, Adah and Ruth May. Our father is also deeply religious, and oftentimes obscure and distant, and the tense scenes from the book involving Nathan Price also felt very familiar to me. The book depicted the human condition so candidly, showing us the broad range of responses that can come from a single situation. It was fascinating to see what each of the girls chose to do with their lives, and how deeply the African experience affected them. Thank you, Barbara Kingsolver! You have touched many of us with this beautiful work.

Cerulean Sins (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter) - book cover picture

I love how Anita has come around. She starts out being a bit self righteous in Guilty Pleasures, though hard as nails and sassy enough that we love her anyway. I love how through the series she is slowly "corrupted". She learns to trust and to give in to her feelings instead of playing the bad ass sociopath all of the time. It does bother me a little that her religion seems to have faded into the background, since it was such a huge part of her life before. Interesting how the cross doesn't glow around Jean Claude...
Anita seems like a more approachable character to me now. Maybe because some of her convictions have been compromised and some of her morals challenged. I do miss Ronnie and her "normal" life. I'm wondering if Edward ended up marrying fragile NM mom, it seems strange to me that he would have a domestic life.
Overall, I totally loved this book and can't wait for the next in the series. I'm way too addicted to Laurell K. Hamilton!

Le Carre's Magnum Opus

Book title: A Perfect Spy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Perfect Spy - book cover picture

This novel is without a doubt the best spy novel I have ever read, if not the best novel. Although Le Carre is normally associated with his 1963 novel, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, A Perfect Spy surpasses anything he has ever written. The story of Magnus Pym is the price one man has to pay for "living on several planes at once," the human price for being a spy. Le Carre has created a brilliant character study within the framework of a thriller, but it is Magnus's story of tortured existence that interests the reader. Questioning the notions of patriotism, nationality,and politics, A Perfect Spy is as much a search for one man's identity as it is a taut political thriller.

Great Family Book

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

The Harry Potter series are stories we read together as a family. The stories are exciting and entertaining for parents as well as children. Strong moral messages become points for discussion, i.e. loyalty, honesty, love, belief in self. "Goblet of Fire" is a darker tale, yet its more serious themes are handled in a way that does not frighten children, at least not my boys who are highly sensitive. Any concerns about the stories being anti-Christian because of magical powers used by characters is, in my opinion, greatly unfounded. If read carefully, you'll see that Christmas carols are heard during the holiday seasons, and goodness is found in characters (as well as evil in those choosing the "dark side.") These stories are a joy to read and share.

Stop Pretending

Stop Pretending : What Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy - book cover picture

If you don't like books written in poetry form, then this may not be the book for you. This is a very sad story of a young teenage girl who writes about her sister. She talks about her sister being sick, old memories, and the way her family and friends take it all. Some of the sotires in her poems leave you hanging, wanting more or on edge left wondering. I'd say this would fall under young-adult reading, mainly for the stle of writing and the type of book it is. I personally didn't relate to this story all that much, though it did make me think about the ones i love, and how i would feel if anyone in my family were in her sister's situation. This is definitely one of those books that make you realize what you have before it's actually gone.

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

I am an avid reader, and this is just about the best novel I have ever read. Dolores is a complex character, one who I felt a range of emotions toward as I read the book. Wally Lamb does not spare her from terribly difficult experiences that led me to feel sad and sorry for her, nor does he spare her from making foolish mistakes that made me want to say to her, "Stop! Don't do it!" Like other reviewers, I was surprised and impressed that a male author had so completely and believably captured the female protagonist. It is very well written--even minor characters like her college roommate are distinctive and memorable, and her emotional growth throughout the book is well chronicled and mesmerizing to read about. I recommend this book very, very highly.
