Know thy enemy is this book's premise.

The Screwtape Letters - book cover picture

Lewis gives us excellent insight and perspective on the nature of temptation and how Satan works. The work is set up as correspondances between a beaucrat in hell and his nephew Wormwood. The letters are advice and training for Wormwood who is given charge of luring certain people down to Hell. The book is entertaining, humorous, but also deep and should strike a chord with those expiriencing strong temptation in their life towards some form of evil. The best way to fight your enemy is to know him, and this book is an theory on how the devil and his angels might work to take souls away from God. The book is also very easy to read, and without the pretentious philosophical jargon that theologians use. It's down to earth, common sense theology taught in story form. An excellent work!

WOW Get Astronomy Hacks!!


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

Astronomy Hacks is a wonderful book. The authors do a great job of
loading a lot of helpful information in an easy to read and
understandable fashion. The cool thing about this book is that the
"hacks", helpful tips, and modification they describe in the book are
written so that a beginner is able to understand but at the same time is
not too simple for an advanced person.

Together with their experience the authors provide instructions for
useful modifications to your scope, software to help you observe,
planning an observing session, tips for doing the messier marathon,
choosing and buying accessories, and much more.

A must have for the amateur astronomer!

Raising Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, Energetic - book cover picture

What an awesome book. We are the parents of a 4 1/2 year old boy who is mostly a hurricane on wheels! This book was recommended to us by friends right at the perfect time when other "knowing" people started to label him as ADHD. Our GP had suggested perhaps we could try Ritalin, but no way, this book has taught us to look at our son, and love him for what he is, even if most days are pretty hard going. I felt that the whole book had been written about our son, as most behaviours described by Mary relate to Wade. It was truly a magical moment to read on and discover we are NOT the only people on earth with a VERY SPIRITED child! Thankyou so much Mary for sharing your knowledge in the way of this book. I only wish you could come to New Zealand to share your seminars with us.

Action, adventure, intrigue, spys, terrorists, politics...


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

Much like the novel By the Rivers of Babylon, this novel has a big cast of characters and lots of action and intrigue. DeMille captures the politics involved and shows some evil and good on both sides of the fight.

One of the reasons I love DeMille so much is unfortunately missing in this novel, and that's a first person point of view protagonist. However, there is one main character that is hero of the novel, and while not quite as good, it's reads great and overall the whole story is great.

No need to go over the plot line and details again, so I'll just say that if you enjoy DeMille, you'll like this one too, if you've never read him, well, this is as good a place to start as any, but keep in mind that some of his other novels are quite different.

DeMille is a great novelist if you haven't tried out some of his stuff, you're missing out.

The Roaring Twenties!

F. Scott Fitzgerald: The Great Gatsby (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald) - book cover picture

This book not only tells the story of _The Great Gatsby_, but shows "Generation X" what it was like to live in the famous "Roaring Twenties." Fitzgerald is a genius and has the best descriptions! Symbolism is prevelant throughout the book, so read carefully! The characters show the shallowness of people, and the idea that money buys everything...even love is hinted at throughout the novel. A definite must read. For those who read it at a young age, read it over again, you won't regret it. I read it sophomore year and I also thought it was a "soap opera," but now _The Great Gatsby_ is my favorite book.

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

This is, without a doubt, the best book I have read so far this year. Not only is it a quick read, you will want to read it over and over again when you are feeling down or need some sunlight. Morrie has become my hero, such a strong man with such a great message to put out. He made me look back on my life and question what is and what should be important to me. He reminded me that one should not let the little things get to him, and that one should cherish every moment she has with her loved ones. I guarantee you that you will love this book, and you will want to give it to all your friends so they too can learn from Morrie - I know I did!

Cinderella Story - book cover picture

Without a doubt Bill Murray comes off as the sexiest man alive in this book. Women who read this will be thrown into a wild Bill-desiring frenzy and probably tear their clothes off in public. Whoever would have thought that this Cinderella groundskeeper, just a drip from the bush leagues, would ever make it to playing foursomes with Michael Jordan, Hunter Thompson, Ethel Merman, Klaus von Bulow and Yoda, not to mention Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice? A rollicking romp down the green in a giant earth-devouring threshing machine could not be more fun than reading this book. You will desire this book more than sex or cigarettes once you have completed it. I know I do

Mona Lisa Overdrive (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

If you've read Neuromancer and Count Zero, you MUST read this book. It is the third in the trilogy, and links the seemingly unrelated first two books. As with all Gibson's work, this book charges along at a breakneck pace leaving you exhausted by the end. I loved seeing what became of some of the Neuromancer characters. If you have not read the entire trilogy, you are missing out on some of the most exciting fiction of the century. Buy it NOW

Luck in the Shadows (Nightrunner, Vol. 1) - book cover picture

I have to say that by looking at the cover of this book in the bookstore, I had no interest in it. I skipped right over it several times. Then I read the reviews here, and I figured, what the heck, and picked it up, holding on to the receipt just in case. I threw that receipt away a long time ago.I loved this book, loved all three in the series (as Mrs. Flewelling adamantly objects to it being called a trilogy). Some of the descriptions got kind of long and hindered the story a bit, but she was building her world for us, and a rich world it is. I really, really liked Seregil and his sharp wit, and the bit on the ship with Captain Rhal was exquisitely hilarious! (you'll know it when you see it. I don't believe in spoilers)Okay, Mrs. Flewelling, come with it! You said yourself this is a SERIES, not a trilogy, and this humble reader is waiting patiently for the fourth book. And the fifth. And the sixth, seventh, eighth . . . well, you get the picture.
