She's Come Undone - book cover picture

Absolutely couldn't put it down and recommended it to anyonepassing my way at the pool. Lamb's got a grip on the everydaystruggles of any female, fat or thin, rich or poor, respected or abused. It kind of makes you wonder how many times women are treated like dirt but don't know how to react or just don't have anyone to confide in and trust. It's a bit of a self-help book, because we can recognize some dysfunction in our own lives that parallel Dolores' experiences.

Callings : Finding and Following an Authentic Life - book cover picture

I have a veritable library at home of self help and right livelihood titles. After reading this book, I am ready to sell all other titles to the half-price book store, and replace them on my shelf with this one. The author writes some of the most elegant prose I've read anywhere, coupled with unparalelled insights and illuminating examples. Believe me, I wouldn't even write a review unless I were so compelled!

Wild Swans : Three Daughters of China - book cover picture

This book compels you from the first moment ... and sweeps you into a beautiful land torn apart by a history of war and brutality. One is horror-stricken at what can happen when one is at the mercy of governmental policy bent on degradation and mindless destruction. The reader gets a horrific sense of China through the decades, especially the years when Mao was at the helm and the Cultural Revolution was at its violent peak. This book is written in a personal, tragic, sensitive manner by an extraordinary woman who is the descendent of extraordinary women. Ultimately, the book asks you to ponder the quality of your own life ... and strips away the urge to take your freedom for granted. For any number of reasons --- you must read this book!

A Must Read!

Angel of Darkness : The True Story of Randy Kraft and the Most HeinousMurder Spree - book cover picture

Dennis McDougal delivers a true-crime page turner that I simply couldn't put down. Ignore the more negative reviews, the book is well written and superbly researched, painting a truly nightmarish picture of true evil. Randy Kraft is one of the worst serial killers in American history gaining his morbid title by sheer numbers alone with a body count of at least 65! It's a chilling read of continous torture, rape and murder that spans an entire decade. The most disturbing part of the book is what isn't written...why haven't we heard of Kraft before now? Everyone has heard of Gacey, Dahmer, Son of Sam, etc. but until this book I'd never heard of Kraft...the murder and torture of young women is considered by society as more fiendish because overall women are more easily accepted as helpless victims, while young men especially strong, masculine Marines can take care of themselves. Obviously Kraft proves that anyone can fall victim when evil stalks our streets.

A Question of Rebus: The Ox or a Fish Supper?


Book title: A Question of Blood : An Inspector Rebus Novel (Inspector Rebus Mysteries (Paperback))

Binding: Paperback
A Question of Blood : An Inspector Rebus Novel (Inspector Rebus Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Walk into a book shop, and chances are you'll find the Rankin books under the category of "Mystery". The latest Rebus book is once again a tale of two crimes, which Rebus and Siobhan Clarke slowing solve thoughout the book. But unlike other mystery novels, the fun isn't in deducing whodunnit, but in enjoying the characters on their journey through the story. The interaction between Rebus and Clarke as they work their way through the pubs of Edinburgh is a joy, even when the conversation drifts far away from the cases they are supposed to solve. Many of the other characters firmly hold your attention too, and it's all so enjoyable that the weak conclusions to the mysteries are almost of no consequence. When it comes to an Ian Rankin mystery the fun is in the journey, not in the getting there.

Writing Music for Hit Songs: Including New Songs from the '90s - book cover picture

This book was exactly what I was looking for. I knew how to play the saxophone, but I didn't know how to write music. This book quickly moves through chords (I used "How to Play Popular Piano in 10 Easy Lessons" by Norman Monath to learn the chords on piano) so it's not for a beginner musician. But if you have experience playing an instrument (any instrument), and have access to a piano/keyboard, this book is for you. I'm almost finished with my first reading and I plan to go back and read it again, this time doing the exercises. I wish I had done them to begin with but I was so intrigued by this book I just couldn't stop long enough to do them! If you want to write your own music (and it's not as you may think), BUY THIS BOOK!

Operating System Design: The XINU Approach, Vol. I - book cover picture

This book is a college-level text that explains and documents XINU, a compact, robust operating system. The code for every function appears in the book embedded in explanatory text. The author exposes his design choices and the reasons behind them. Exercises encourage thinking about alternative methods and added features. I used XINU for a very demanding real-time system. I found it to be capable and robust. The superb documentation found in the book gave confidence to write several device drivers for some peculiar peripherals. This the best of the dozen or so books on operating systems that I've read.

Bee Season : A Novel - book cover picture

Myla Goldberg's use of language in this book is to me, unforgettable. She used that language to describe a family whose relationships to each other seemed so delicate, when done reading at night I found myself gently placing the book on the nightstand beside me for fear of disturbing them. It seemed to me that this was a quiet family--I imagined their house to be one where only whispers could be heard. Yet, inevitably, each member of the family has a voice, a method of expression which is transcendent and beautiful. I don't want to give away a thing. This is a lovely book.

Beauty : A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast - book cover picture

OMG, this book is AWESOME! Beauty is a totally real character who knows what she'd doing. The writing is eloqent and the characters are well-rounded. The ending is GREAT, because it's so not like the Disney movie. I bought it awhile ago and LOVE it! The descriptions of the castle are wonderful. I can like and admire Beauty, something that's rare in fairy tale books. Buy this book! You won't be disappointed. It's a wonderful escape into a world you'll never forget!
P.S. I didn't tell about the plot 'cuz...well...come on. It's Beauty and the Beast. Plus, I like to find out for myself, don't you?

The "Bible" of all Animal Rights Books


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

Peter Singer started the animal rights movement in the early 70's with this book, and it's influence can still be found today. Animal Liberation's arguments lie heavily on the assumption that the reader knows at least a little bit about ethics. Some unfamiliar with ethics may find this a challenging read. Singer introduces many examples of speciesism in experimentation, factory farming, etc. He also confronts speciesism, which is a prejudice against other species. My personal favorite animal rights book, I would recommend no other before it!
