Chasing Grace : Reflections of a Catholic Girl, Grown Up - book cover picture

Martha Manning not only writes a delightfully charming and hilarious account of her Catholic girlhood, she also, and more importantly, connects adult life experiences with acramental spirituality. Relating real life experiences in the context of each of the 7 Sacraments celebrated in the Catholic Church, she gives a tangible reality to spirituality and explores life as a place where one encounters the living presence of God. It is obvious that for Ms. Manning, all of life is sacred and sacraments are to be lived - not just as ritual moments, but as the very fabric of everyday experience. This is a gem.

The Nonexistent Knight and The Cloven Viscount - book cover picture

Before it became mandatory for my eleventh grade English class to read these novellas, I had no idea who Italo Calvino was. Even after I bought the books special order, they sat on my shelf until the time when the teacher assigned them. But upon opening the front cover, I realized how much inspiration had been hiding in my own bedroom for four weeks and I was instantly sorry. The story of the nonexistant knight was so well written and eloquent in language and style, I instantly fell in love with the author. I encourage anyone to explore Calvino's world.

How to Rip Off Lester Bangs Without Trying OR Lou Reed Kills

Rating: 5/5

Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung - book cover picture

Lester Bangs got it right. He was the only rock critic who wrote with the rhythm of rock 'n' roll and felt to his absolute core every note. He was absolutely insulted by blandness in music, and therefore, never wrote a bland review. His critics often criticize his "digressions," but they're missing the point; after all, great rock and roll is a digression from most socially acceptable behavior. Consequently, this book is absolutely essential for anyone who cares about rock 'n' roll's past, present or future. Read Lester to get to the heart of rock, then read Greil Marcus to come to terms with its uneasy mind.

Star Wars the Courtship of Princess Leia - book cover picture

This is the book where Han and Leia finally make plannes to marry. Unfortunately, Leia is not considering Han. A Hapan prince offers his hand to Leia and along with it the rule of sixty-three planets and enough resources to get the New Republic up and running smoothly. Han doesn't like this and, well, sort of, um, kidnapps Leia. Luke and the Prince Isolder pursue them and any more would spoil the book. Altogether, a hilarious and yet serious look at the Force and the dangers of using it, as well as fulfilling the relationship we all knew had to be from the start.

Rebecca - book cover picture

Rebecca is a timeless classic in the gothic literature genre. Daphne Du Maurier weaves a tale full of tension and suspense that grips the reader from the start and doesn't let go.
Max de Winter brings his new bride to Manderley, the home he shared with his beautiful first wife Rebecca, before her untimely death widowed him. Rebecca's presence still seems to permeate Manderley, haunting the new Mrs de Winter and sapping her confidence. The housekeeper Mrs Danvers who loved Rebecca and resents her place being 'usurped' feeds the young brides insecurities at every opportunity and makes her doubt her husbands love for her. When whispers of murder start to be heard, Mrs de Winter starts to doubt her new husband as well as her own sanity.
A fantastic tale that can be read time and time again without becoming stale or boring.

Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence - book cover picture

Singer and Willett is an absolutely wonderful book on longitudinal data analysis. It is divided into two main sections -- one on longitudinal analysis per se, and another on time-to-event, or survival analysis, models. The former is especially good on the basic setup and interpretation of multi-level statistical models.
This is a book for beginners in the sense that it emphasizes data analysis, rather than theory. But every statistician, and every user of statistics, can find something of value.
When I was only halfway through reading this book, I recommended it to my friends. Several of them have purchased a copy and are glad they did.
This is probably the most well-written statistics text I have ever read.

Breaking Boxes - book cover picture

I really loved this book a lot. The reason I liked it so much is I could relate to the characters because a similar thing that happened to Charlie Calmont, happened to me. I think this book is very realistic, and while it displays the everyday issues teens have to deal with, it also shows how two different people (or so it seems) could have so much in common and end up being friends. I also really liked the ending.

My admiration for Richard Russo's work grows with each novel

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

My admiration for Richard Russo grows with each novel he writes. The texture of his characters and his sureness of dialogue and place creates a reality that is filled with humor and nuance. Try as I might,I find it almost impossible to read and savor his books slowly. His characters speak of the truth that we all are hiding: beware our bravado-it only exsists to cover our folly. I laugh on every page,but the laughs don't come cheaply; they spring out of the recognition of myself in the behavior of others

The Lord of the Rings - book cover picture

J.R.R. Tolkien is a master of fiction with all the detail you can picture everyone in the book. I discovered the Hobbit a while back in third grade when I watched the cartoon I simply fell in love with the book. Then I discovered the Lord of the Rings. Some reviews say the the books make no sense that just shows how little a vocabulary and fanstasy people have. I am pretty young and a avede reader but, I enjoy the series and hope you will to.

English Patient - book cover picture

When a young nurse and a maimed thief from Canada, a bomb sapper from India and a half dead man from the Libyan desert --probably a Hungarian-- gathered in a villa in Tuscany, Italy, it was not due to a joke of geography. It was mostly the cruelty of a war of nations, whose heads of state wanted to change the border lines among nations. That was the beginning of the memories by a man who mapped the desert and learnt to hate nations. Although desert-wise he had put the heart into the wrong place. Eventually he lost his identity and was told us as "The English Patient" by Michael Ondaatje's namesake novel (1992). If not the geography let's respect at least the men who made and loved it! (Excerpt of "In Situ - A society of explorers" as published by me on Oct.16, 2000 at
