Life after 40

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Fast Women - book cover picture

Finally a novelist who realizes women over 40 do have a life, love and romance. I have always enjoyed Ms. Crusie's books but enjoyed this one the most because of the age of the characters. I hope she writes more like this. Most romance novels have plot lines a little far fetched, but if they didn't we wouldn't read them. This one is complicated, but she ties it all together quite well in the end.

Garfield takes the cake...and eats it too

Garfield Takes the Cake (Garfield (Numbered Paperback)) - book cover picture

I don't know what it is about Garfield that still gets me to buy his books ever year. I have been a fan since I was in second grade, will be 22 years in September. I think what appeals me to the lazy fat cat is his sharp wit and cynicism. Just like Garfield, I hate Mondays with an immense passion and I love lasagna. One of my personal favorite books in the entire series is "Garfield Takes the Cake", the fifth volume of Garfield comic strips. I loved it when Garfield's grandfather pays Garfield a visit. I thought it was a nice touch. I got to see where Garfield got his looks from. I also loved it when Garfield met Arlene. Talk about oil and water. Arlene is definitely Garfield's equal when she is able to match wits with the fat cat. And I love all the fat jokes Jon makes and Garfield's reaction. The camping expedition is a definite classic Garfield moment. No matter how old I get, I can never get tired of reading Garfield. He is my escape from a crazy world known as reality.

From State to Market? : The Transformation of French Business and Government - book cover picture

Schmidt's ambitions in this book are keen and noble in their specificity: an examination of the changing roles of the French state in the economy and its influence on business. In clear lucid prose she clarifies what makes the French system so, well, French. If there's anything lacking in this study it is a broader cross-cultural perspective. It would be wonderful too see Schmidt focus her obvious passions on other European venues, say by applying her talents to an English model.

Jamesean book for young and adult readers

Book title: What Jamie Saw
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
What Jamie Saw - book cover picture

Those complaining about a lack of action miss the boat--and it doesn't matter whether they're sixth graders or sixty year olds. The book is not driven by event, but by perception, and, just like "What Maisie Knew," whose title it echoes, the point is to show us how Jamie thinks and feels about a situation beyond his control and in some senses beyond his ability to make sense. No, it's not full of Harry Potter-ish magic (which I do like) or graphic violence, it asks its readers, in language young readers CAN understand, to value spending some time inside someone else's mind and emotions.

The Garment & Slinky Jane: Two Wonderful Novels in One Volume (Catherine Cookson Ominbuses) - book cover picture

The Garment tells of a young woman (Grace), recently married to Donald Rouse, a parson whom she adores. Over the first two years of their marriage, Grace's eyes are opened to the real man behind the facade, as she experiences the frustrations and feelings of rejection of an unconsummated marriage. Grace suffocates under this oppression, until she finds love, passion and more elsewhere. The Garment shows how vital it is for a woman to find love and fulfillment in her life, even when it comes at great sacrifice.Slinky Jane is the story of an innocent but very private woman who stops over in a small town, only to turn the town upside down. Her behavior raises the suspicions of the town's women, who believe she threatens their marriages. It is also about finding love when and where one least expects it, and how that love can be strong enough to face life full of uncertainies.

Shows all.... but with a quality of mercy

Diana: The Last Year - book cover picture

One gets the full story from Soto. You don't get every salvo from the war of the Wales.But does one need that? Important facts, such as Diana's understanding that the 10,000 bouquet from the public, was as important as her first, are there.I felt he understood Diana and her impact on people better than most. It' has a tenderness that's vital when considering her life. The book I recommend when asked about Diana books.

A correction of a 'correction'...

Descartes' Error : Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain - book cover picture

This is NOT a review -- though I own the book in question, have only skimmed it so far, and venture to agree heartily with the glowing reviews I've read. I merely would like to respond to our friend, the reviewer from Canada, who was disturbed by what he/she thought was an 'error' in the author's SPELLING of his title. I certainly can't speak for all the rules of English spelling as taught or practiced in Canada, but, as a student of English in general, I can assure the troubled reviewer that "Descartes' Error" contains NO error in spelling. The reviewer is correct, of course, in stating that "Descartes" is not a plural noun; but the general rule for forming the possessive of any noun (including personal names) whose singular form ends in "s" is one which favors economy and simplicity: simply add an apostrophe (') to denote possession -- NOT an apostrophe AND another "s" -- as the title of this book correctly shows.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

Well the courts have just reconfirmed the assininity of Fox's War Network in ruling to release this book, so let us read on! At no time has this nation more needed the courage of exposure of all the poseurs of democracy, those like the O'Reillys and Coulters and Horowitzes and Limbaughs and pretentious George Wills who make their overpriced bread being smart-... assassins at the expense of honest politicians trying to help the public, not dumb it down to up their own fat-cat antes. Franken, his titles alone indicating it, realizes that the thick sleeze hardly deserves serious analysis. They may fool a large segment just by their domination of the airwaves, but their day is coming and Franken, in his satirical and irreverent chunk by chunk treatment of all of the junk, will be a benchmark in the reversal. And a humorous, uproarious one in the process.

Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom : Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing - book cover picture

A friend recommended this book to me. She had told me what the chapters consisted of, etc. So, I was very excited to read it. And it lived up to all of my expectations. This book changed my perspectives on several issues. Northrup gives several "miracle" stories of her patients and tons of medical facts, research, etc. I would not recommend this book to the narrow-minded. But, if you do purchase it, I would recommend taking your time to read it, it is a lot of info to take in. But, it is valuable information for anyone to know (whether you are male or female.)

Crusie proves again why she's at the top

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

Okay. So I had a few minor quibbles with the book. Let's get them out the way up front. The secondary characters could have been developed more and the wrap up was too fast. BUT, nobody does it better. They don't even do it as well. This has the Crusie wit, the quirky but lovable main characters who don't have it all together, but you'd like to know anyway. They'd make great next door neighbors. Davy is second only to Phin as her best male character. I liked this book more than Fast Women. It isn't as dark. I always like the sense of community Crusie creates in her books, friends and family that are bonded together at the end. The relationship between Tilda and Davy really works, much more than Gabe and Nell in Fast Women. So if you forget about how Crusie could have fleshed out the other characters just a little bit more and focus on the main romance, you'll love this book.
