The Terrorist of Irustan (Ace Science Fiction) - book cover picture

This is a story you will not be able to put down, and certainly it will stay in your mind when you are not reading it. It is science fiction/fantasy that has multiple layers and can lead to some deep questions. The parallels to the Middle East cannot be avoided; but the story is so well crafted, that is not a distraction. Surprises emerge when you think you have the characters and plot figured out. And the characters are so well developed, you really get to understand them. I thought Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" and Walker's "Possessing the Secret of Joy" were the most wrenching books on the repression of women in parts of the world, but Marley is masterful in this book. I can highly recommend this novel and this author. Don't miss "The Glass Harmonica" as well.

A moving novel


Book title: To Kill a Mockingbird
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
To Kill a Mockingbird - book cover picture

Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" is a must for everyone. The book's narrator, Jean Louise "Scout" Finch, is a tomboy from Maycomb, a "tired old town" deep in Southern tradition during the '30s. Although most of the novel depicts Scout's childhood, the last half of the novel connects with the beginning to tell a story that leaves everyone moved. Tom Robinson, a young, friendly black man, has been charged with the rape of a girl by a trashy and disrespected family, and Scout's father, Atticus, has been asked to defend Tom. The family's struggle through this trial and the life lessons learned by Scout make this book top-notch. If you haven't read it, buy it today- you can finish it in a weekend, but it will impact you for a lifetime.

Don't listen to the hypercritical critics above!

King continually amazes with his ingenuity!


Book title: The Long Walk
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Long Walk - book cover picture

An avid Stephen King reader, this one threw me. It was truly riveting, though unlike the King norm (no supernatural happenings and no monsters!) Although it did bring to mind "The Running Man" at certain points. The evil is man himself, and his love of the morbid, especially when it is socially acceptable.The basic plot is 100 young and fit men (teenagers, mostly), walking. Sounds pretty boring, but it gets better. When a walker breaks a rule, such as stopping to tie his shoe, he gets a "ticket." The last boy walking wins "the prize." The mystery of what these terms mean is part of the plot, and their definitions are truly terrifying. King spins a yarn, and reveals horribly gruesome facts about the walk as the story goes on. He pulls you in further and further until the shocking end and the bitter realization that winning always comes with a price-and sometimes that price is your very sanity.

Intelligent analysis of ethnic polarization in America


Book title: The Disuniting of America: Reflections on a Multicultural Society
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Disuniting of America: Reflections on a Multicultural Society - book cover picture

This highly readable book analyzes the drift in American culture. Originally America was a "melting pot" where each immigrant ethnic wave valued subverting their cultural values to become emersed in the language, politics and culture of the US. The current environment tends to value ethnic differences. The survival of America, which has sustained frequent waves of immigrants, is challenged by the polarization into ethnic enclaves. Many other countries not unified have suffered chaotic internal conflicts such as the Balkans, Spain, Zaire, etc. He analyzes the effects of language, history, and cultural values on the stability of America.

Although the author's posture is not exactly politically correct, it forces the reader to examine the impact of valuing ethnic differences rather than the commonality of being "American."

The best book ever

Ella Enchanted (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

Words can not describe how much I enjoyed this book! This story captured me from the beginning to the end. The auther created such a mood that I cried thorough most of it. This is a mix of different Fairy tales but it is mainly bassed on Cinderella with a curse of obedience placed on her as a child (much like sleeping beauty). She is all throughout the book trying to break the curse so she can make her own decisions. Finally at the end she finds the one thing that can make her want to say "No way" to everyone....... Were you expecting me to give away the ending? thats the best part! read it to find out and I know you will be touched just like I was. I have to say this is apsolutly the best book I have ever read (and I have read ALOT of books!). If I could give this a 10 star review I would!

Strong Women, Strong Bones : Everything You Need to Know to Prevent, Treat, and Beat Osteoporosis - book cover picture

I took out a number of books from the library including recent releases. Admittedly, I reviewed them from a different perspective than older folks as I'm just over 40. This was the most informative book with relevant information to my age group. Even though I work out regularly and thought I had a pretty good routine, there were plenty of enlightening strength exercises that have never been in my repertoire. That reason alone rates this book superior than others.
