Knight of the Demon Queen - book cover picture

This is among my favorite fantasy novels. Ever.It does what I want speculative fiction to do: walk over edges. Yes, the characters are tortured. Yes, a happy ending is not (in this volume of the series) apparent. But this is not a nihilist book: always, in the background, we know that love and loyalty have importance to Hambly's universe. And the grit, the horror, provides a wonderful anecdote to all that Pollyannaish pap that's out there on the shelves.In addition, Hambly's background as a historian gives her the skills to write wonderfully grounded, believeable fiction. Her worlds work, from ecology to economy. Don't miss this one.

Damned in Paradise: A Nathan Heller Novel (Nathan Heller Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Max Allan Collins is one of my favorite writers. His books which employ the character Nate Heller are some of the best mystery novels ever written. Nate is always placed in the middle of a true-life incident, sometimes historically significant, sometimes not. In this case, the incident was not particularly historically significant, if not for the appearance of an aging Clarence Darrow. As always, this Heller book informs regarding the incident and truly entertains. I have read dozens of mystery series. Nate Heller ranks right up there with Travis McGee and Elvis Cole as one of my favorite detectives. Perhaps Heller is the most developed and interesting of the bunch.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) - book cover picture

I thoroughly enjoyed this book when I read it this summer! I saw the book in a book store, and was drawn to it. I put off buying it, but what a treat when I did!My biggest advice in reading this book is that you have to make some time to read it at first. The book skips around from character to character, and once you get into that, it's okay. But, I read the first 20 pages as just a few pages at a time, and I almost gave up on the book. But, then I read the rest of the book in two sittings. I had a hard time putting The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants down! It was a believable book overall. It was full of emotion, and a nice easy read.As soon as I finished the book, my very first thought was, "I hope that Brashares writes a book about the following summer!" (And I was so excited to just find out that there will be another book, and it will be released in April 2003.)I think this would be a really great book for a mother and daughter to read and discuss together!

Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare - book cover picture

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the bard and even to those who have some reservations about reading Shakespearian plays. Greenblatt has done an excellent job in writing a book that is not only a delight to read, but informative as well. It's not a text crammed with tedious facts; instead it's a backstage pass on what's going on behind the scenes. Greenblatt stimulates your mind as he cleverly unfolds the fascinating details of the life of William Shakespeare.

The Nonexistent Knight and The Cloven Viscount - book cover picture

For anyone with a penchant for the rather obscure, the outrageously funny, and the dazzling world of Italo Calvino, this book ranks as one of the author's finest works.The tales of a suit of armor out to vindicate himself, and a count with literally "split personalities" is colored with heavy doses of wit, and a dab of philosophical discourse. Prose flows effortlessly accross your tongue as you read. And you don't seem to notice the passage of time. The characters, especially the protagonists, prove to be very endearing. For anyone who hasn't read Calvino, this is as good as any book to start with. It gets the bandwagon rolling.

Honest to Jesus: Jesus for a New Millennium - book cover picture

I bought this book expecting to object to every page as I read it. Instead, I found myself saying "Amen" to almost everything Funk brings to the party. The church, if not Christianity itself, is in dire straits at the moment. Funk nails the problems with creedalism and antique theologies. For myself, I'd rather read Marcus J. Borg, because I find him more hopeful for the church, but Funk's opus is one that every pastor and every Christian and every seeker must read to break out of the idolatry of a Jesus who is dead. You might not like Funk's portrait of Jesus or his thoughts about Him, but a lot of people were turned off by John the Baptist, too. So, Wake Up! Take on the challenges put forth by Funk

Secrets from the Grave (St. Martin's True Crime Library) - book cover picture

A great book, but...I wanted more character description. It is very obvious who was willing to be interviewed by the author and who was not (namely, Dr. Scher and his wife Pat Dillon Scher). I guess they felt they would come out worse than they already do in the story. This book has been one of the saddest true crime stories I have ever read. Almost all of the main characters are despicable, but you can't put the book down.

Forgiving the Unforgivable - book cover picture

After reading hundreds of self-help books in an attempt to overcome anger and be able to forgive, this book finally gave a no-nonsense, step by step schematic that really works! The book helps the reader define the injury, identify the responsible party, and move toward the final step of unloading the bitterness that can hold you back and keep you unhappy.I was totally amazed at how effective the outline was. After 35 years, I now look at my life in an entirely new way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having difficulty getting past an emotional injury.

The Hot Zone : A Terrifying True Story - book cover picture

The detail descriptions of the effects of this viurs are graphic, making its existence terrifying. I knew about this virus already, but I received more information after reading this book. I am also pleased to find that much of the facts Preston used check out and are valid. I was somewhat disappointed that the CDC did not have as much time in the spotlight as USAMRIID, but I can say that this novel read more like a page-turner horror tale, only it was truth, and that's scary. I have become interested in filoviruses as a result of reading this book as well. It makes you think twice about venturing into the jungles of Zaire if you were to go on a safari.

The Photoshop Elements 3 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) - book cover picture

I got Photoshop Elements 3 along with a book and fumbled around in a frustrated fashion for about a month. Then I went on a cruise where they offered 4 classes. I took them and someone recommended Scott Kelby's book. When I got home I ordered it from Amazon - it arrived 2 days later and now I'm really on a roll. I've organized my photos, renamed them so they make sense, made digital backups that I can understand and burned CD's that play on the DVD player. All this in less than a week! There are pictures of the screen so you can find exactly what is described in the text. The book is written so you don't have to be a techie to understand it! I'm ready to go further with improving my photos but so far, just the organization is paying off big time. Get this book. You'll be glad you did! Penny
