The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts (Vintage International) - book cover picture

This brilliant, hilarious, tragic novel tells the story of a village in a fictional yet all-to-real South American country whose villagers lives are thoroughly disrupted when the wife of the local Jefe--the arrogant and haughtily Dona Constanza--attempts to divert the flow of the local river to fill her swimming pool.The villagers, who depend on the river to water their crops, are outraged, and turn to Don Emmanuel to plead their case. The campaign the dissolute, foul-mouthed, corrupt, entirely gallant Don Emmanuel wages leads to government intervention into the fracas and the outbreak of a full-scale civil war.A novel that effectively portrays the life of the modern day South American peasantry as well as the beauty, viciousness and insanity of life in a region torn by strife and riven by corruption told with a sense of compassion, love and humor that are truly rare in today's ethnic fiction.Highly recommended.

The Memoirs of Cleopatra : A Novel - book cover picture

Of course, being a work of fiction, a few of the facts in this book will be off, and some characters may have never existed, but this book is rewarding in itself. Overall the story was accurate. Cleopatra is portrayed as a strong woman with a mind of her own, yet vulnerable, with many hardships to go through by herself. I must say that the only thing I disliked was the character of Marcus Antonius. He seemed so childish and unable to make a decision for himself that he didn't seem to mesh well with Cleopatra. However, the story is beautifully written and deserves all of five stars and more. This was my first Margaret George novel...Mary, Called Magdalene will be my next one.

Last Man Standing - book cover picture

I'm enjoying reading "Last Man Standing" as an attempt at a change of pace from Norman Thomas Remick's "West Point", the non-fiction book I'm also reading. I'm surprised at how heavy and involved Mr. Baldacci's book seems, even in comparison to the history and philosophy of "West Point". That's because Mr. Baldacci does such great background work for the tales he spins that they seem to be serious non-fiction. This one is no different, possibly the best. I won't say any more, or I would risk ruining it for you. Just know that I highly recommend it.

FINALLY!

The Enchanted Wood - book cover picture

This book is an amazing, amazing book. I remember reading this book when I was around 10 years old and this series transported me to this wonderful world of the Faraway tree where all sort of unusual folk live. There's Silky, Moonface, the angry pixie, the saucepan man to name a few. The top of the tree has a new land every time: the land of the giants, the land of Dame Slap, the land of do-as-you-please...
I'm 28 years old now and I still consider myself a HUGE fan of Enid Blyton and I am tremendously pleased to FINALLY see her books being sold here on the US Amazon.com site (the UK site sells some of them too).
If you enjoyed reading Harry Potter, the Narnia series and the like you will definitely enjoy reading this one.

Ella Enchanted (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

OK, so I'm not Siskel or Ebert, but I am a 14-year-old who loved Ella Enchanted. It was extremely funny, and I could really relate to Ella (who seemed extremely believable compared to the original Cinderella). The story was very creative, and I am positive that the author has a great imagination - first, to get Ella into all kinds of scrapes, and then to get her out of them, all the time keeping true to the fairy tale! Ella Enchanted really inspired me to write more stories of my own, and I hope that someday I'll be able to win a Newbery Honor medal for a book as good as this one. Anyone, young or young-at-heart, will enjoy it.

The Physics of Fluid Turbulence (Oxford Engineering Science Series, 25) - book cover picture

As a detailed review and pedagogical presentation of the statistical approach to the turbulence problem you will not find a better book. This monograph is comprehensive as well as being accessible. All aspects of the renormalised perturbation DIA theory of Kraichnan are covered in detail as well as the Langrangian history direct interaction, LET, EFP and simulation methods (the CUDIA is omitted). A brief description of renormalised group theories are covered, which given McComb's groups current work in this area, it would have been nice to have more detail. While you will not find discussion of the functional operator formalism of Martin et al, and the discussion of the functional integral method is brief, this in no way detracts from this fine text. The only comprabale text of which I am aware is that of Stanisic which is unfortunately littered with typographical errors.

Fresh Food Fast: Delicious, Seasonal Vegetarian Meals in Under an Hour - book cover picture

I received this book as a gift and immediately put it to use for father's day. I made the cold avocado w/ lime and jalape?o soup to start and seared tofu w/ black beans & mango salsa as the main dish. They were really both fantastic, and even my extremely carnivorous father was pleased! The meals are very quick and yet are quick and sophisticated. The book itself is gorgeous, and Peter Berley did a very interesting thing with the organization, where it is organized seasonally into menus. Whats so nice about this is that it makes making an entire meal even easier because you are given the ingredient list for everything (in addition to individual recipes), and a "game plan" for what to do and in what order. Fabulous book!

PLAYER PIANO - book cover picture

This book offers an interesting view of social politics as they were in the 50's, and still are. This book tells us what we are all rather blind to see, which is that we really do have very little control in what we do any more, whether it be in education, employment, or any other area. Revolting against the government is eventually what became of it and may..."Those who make peaceful change impossible make violent revolution inevitable"

This is a very charming book, covering the courtship and marriage of Anne and Robin de Piaget, the parents of Kendrick from Stardust of Yesterday,(Robin is also the son of Rhys and Gwen from Another Chance to Dream and benefactor to the Christopher in "This is All I Ask"). It fills in some of the family history and also stands on its own as a sweet story about two people who love each other dearly but are reluctant to admit it. A very enjoyable read.
