The French Lieutenant's Woman (French Lieutenant's Woman) - book cover picture

A novel that can be read on a multitude of levels this is a masterpiece. As a deconstruction of textual boundaries, as best represented by the Victorian romance novel, and as a reconciliation of polyphony (multiple text sources/styles) Fowles work here places him amongst the greats of the century. He has taken some of the great questions of modernist and postmodernist writing and answered them experimentally but also accessibly. The sucess of this final point is best demonstrated by the masses of readers who happily devour this novel as a tragic romance. As a sidetrack I disagree with the reviewer from Ottawa, the film version is fine if you divorce it from the novel(as it is always healthy to do when viewing adaptations). As to my keyline I am referring to the spare prose of Fowler which shows up Byatt's somewahat flowery attempt at the same field of reinterpreting the romance.

Best Resumes for $75,000 + Executive Jobs, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

The author has written an exceptional book on every step of the resume writing process. Whether you are a professional, or not, this is the book you need, to get the job you want! The book is loaded with high-powered details, for those that are employed or for those who have not been in the job market for some time. Montag's approach in turning yourself into the "product" is nothing short of extraordinary!! Emphasis on the "Cover Letter" of your resume left me speechless. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in moving ahead in the job force!! I most enjoyed the author's "REALITY CHECKS", which were strategically placed throughout the book.

An eloquent evocation of the sense of Midwestern place.

Falling Toward Grace: Images of Religion and Culture from the Heartland - book cover picture

Although this book's subtitle refers to religion in the heartland, essays in this collection evoke a more personal and, at times, idiosyncratic take on spirituality. David Hoppe, for example, writes about the "solitary communion" he spies through his neighbor's windows as they sit in front of their television sets at night. Jim Poyser recounts a surreal adventure at the Zoo in winter with his sons. In short, these essays, along with the handsome collection of photographs that complement the text, admirably plumb the psychic root cellar that entwines beneath the stereotypical surface of this Midwestern community.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) - book cover picture

I have enjoyed the first five in this series and had eagerly anticipated this novel for two years, and can i tell you, it definately does not disappoint!
I laughed, i cried (bawled and sobbed, are probably more accurate!!), i loved and went through a tiddlewave of emotions throughout this stunningly written novel.
I recommend it to anyone.
J. K. Rowling is to be admired for her brilliance and imagination.
As an avid book lover, i must also admit that it was a thrill to hear that this novel sold more than the top two movies at the box office on the weekend!

My only complaint is that it was rather sad to have to close the covers. If only Harry, Hermione and Ron could have endless adventures!!
My hope is that the seventh novel is the size of an encyclopaedia!

Thank you

The Helmacrons are back!

Animorphs #42 : The Journey (Animorphs) - book cover picture

In this book, the helmacrons (previously in Animorphs #24, The Suspicion) have returned to get the morphing device and they're more desperate than ever. When Rachel morphs into an elephant, Marco- as usual - gets in the way, and ends up with a head full of helmacrons! Yup, you heard me right, the helmacrons are in his head and they are armed and dangerous! The other animorphs have no other choice than to shrink to inch high sizes, and follow the helmacrons up Marco's nose! Another entertaining Animorph book, if I may say so myself with the usual risks and humour.

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - book cover picture

Though I am the opposite of what Morrie himself would have liked in a human being, I picked up this book yesterday afternoon after hearing so much about it, and read it in no more than one and a half hours. True, I am a quick reader, and I love to read(which is unfortunate as I have so little time for it these days), but I simply devoured the content as I laughed along and almost cried along with Morrie's situation (this is surprising, as I have not come close to crying in four years). BUt the book touches the hearts of all, from a teenager to the most hardened investment banker. It is most definitely a must-read, and even if it does not change your outlook on life(it didn't change mine), it teaches quite significantly, and gives lessons on life that are invaluable and priceless.

Destined to Witness : Growing Up Black in Nazi Germany - book cover picture

I found this book painful and yet filled with deep respect for Mr. Massaquoi. I am a Jamaican woman (black woman) living in Germany and I immediately knew that this was a must read for me, the moment I heard about it. It made me consider exactly the root of self hatred and most importantly the importance of education and books. And the message that I took away from this book for me today to live by is that Excellence is truly the greatest detterent to racism! Its also a great testimony that not all Germans were and are cold hearted Nazis!.....I can only hope that this will never happen again anywhere in the world! ...

My favorite book!


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

I have recommended this book to so many people and have given it as so many gifts! Katherine was my mom's favorite book and one day she gave it to me to read. It is the story of John of Gaunt and his mistress, Katherine. As srange as it seems, I honostly read this book at least once if not twice a year. Of course first I prepare myself to get nothing done for a few days. When you read Katherine you become so wrapped up in the story. If I put it down to go somewhere I cant stop thinking about the part that is coming next. As I get closer to the end I read slower so as to make the story last longer. If you love romance, happy endings, castles, pretty dresses, and stories of the past, Katherine will make your heart happy and leave you with a wonderful feeling.

Extremely Interesting and Very Enjoyable

Jurassic Park - book cover picture

This book was the first novel that I ever read, and it totally got me into the reading business. This book was great. Michael Crichton works wonders with a pen and some paper. This book I enjoyed most over some of the other books I've read since, in fact, I read it twice. I loved the plot, and it is not all too far fetched, and the story just flow together, which made it quick reading. This book was far better than the movie, but the movie was pretty good, and I recomend it to anyone who enjoys to read.

The Epitome of the American Experience


Book title: The Red Badge of Courage: An Episode of the Civil War
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Red Badge of Courage: An Episode of the Civil War - book cover picture

The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane is a timeless struggle of a boy's fears of war and how he chooses to deal with them. Throughout the course of the story, the protagonist Billy Fleming, encounters many obstacles including the death of his good friend, the decision whether to run from battle or not and countless moments of true wartime danger.
This novel, written entirely from hindsight by Stephen Crane is more of a pyscological analysis of war ethics and honor instead of an action or dramatic novel. The struggles the main character faces in this novel closely if not completely parallel those of a modern day soldier, granting this story the timeless power it has over literature.
