Into the Wilderness - book cover picture

Last summer I finished reading Diana Gabaldon's popular series. Into the Wilderness was recommened to me from a DG message board on AOL. I picked it up out of curiosity. I quickly became engrossed in it, I didn't want to put it down. Elizabeth is such a 3-D character. She's a woman living in the 1700's who can stand up for herself. I can't stand weak heroines who depend entirely on men. Not to say anything against the men in the book. All the characters were believable and you care what happens to them. One of my favorites is Runs-from-Bears, he doesn't say much but he's still very intelligent. I could go on about this wonderful book for hours, but I can't. So if you are looking for a book that will take you away this is it - Enjoy!

Life of Pi - book cover picture

When I finished this book, I felt like I lost a friend. I was lonesome for Richard Parker, for more tales of the open ocean, for that drive for survival. I had to pause before reading another tale. I was perplexed by the ending, I was astonished, blown away....I wanted to read it all over again as if it were my first time. I envy you if you are new to this book, I assure you, you will be in for an incredible journey.

Forged by Fire - book cover picture

Gerald, a determined young teenager, faces a drastic change in his life. His aunt adopts him at the age of three because his birthmother, Monique, is substance-addicted and is incapable of taking care of him. He lives with his aunt Queen for about six years and then she dies, so he goes back to living with his mother, and also his sister, which he's never met, and a stepfather. He is suddenly thrown into a household that is filled with anger, abuse, and addiction. His stepfather abuses him, and he protects his little sister by taking the abuse aimed towards her. I really felt sorry for Angel and Gerald, but in the end he turns out to be a really brave kid. I think this was a great book because it shows how people can make it through all the pain and still manage to survive. I think that this was a very excellent book for middle school children and older readers to show what could possibly be happening behind closed doors.

Love & Fire... WOOOOOO!!!!


Book title: Waiting in Vain
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Waiting in Vain - book cover picture

I recently finished reading "Waiting In Vain" and I have to say that I was more than moved by the way Channer's words seemed to beautifully and poetically intertwine and bring such energy, life and raw, unmasked emotion to the story. I connected with the characters, Sylvia and "Fire" especially, on several different levels! I have not yet been to Jamaica (although I do desire to go there in the very near future).. and reading this book gave me a real sense of the land and the people. Not to mention rejuvenating my wanton romantic spirit and faith that romantic men still DO exist! Channer's mastery with words will leave an indelible impression forever stamped upon your heart and will surely give you something to ponder on long after the last page has been read... it leaves you with a feeling that you won't want to end.. I know I'LL be waiting... not 'in vain' but anxious anticipation for the release of his next work!

Cars and Trucks and Things That Go - book cover picture

Our three boys went through 3 copies of this book. I bought a copy for my granddaughter and have given at least a dozen as gifts. It's a wonderful book to read to several children at once. The double page spread with SO much action is perfect. The ilustrations are detailed enough to appeal to children of different ages. It's fun to find Goldbug and the race is on as you turn the page. The enriching vocabulary and examples of vehicles make this book a great learning tool.

It Will Be Considered A Classic


Book title: Life of Pi
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Life of Pi - book cover picture

I'm an avid reader, usually a book per week, and this book is the best I've read in the past year, maybe longer. It is brilliantly imagined, impeccably written, whimsical, funny and thougtful all at once. There's always a danger in building a book up too much for other readers, so I'll just say this: this book reminded me why I read and what fiction is supposed to do for us. I was SMILING as I read it.
I agree with the below reviewer that the "believe in God" promise isn't quite delivered on, but that didn't compromise the book for me. The book made me believe in the power of storytelling, which goes a very long way on a rainy day.

Buy it in hardback. I'd bet good money this will be one day be considered a classic.

The Confessions of a Shopaholic had me addicted to the book!

Confessions of a Shopaholic - book cover picture

This book was great. I couldn't put it down. I am not a big reader. Actually...I probably read 2 books every year on my own terms, but when I read The Confessions of a Shopaholic, I wondered if there were any other books I could read like it. It was so realistic and funny too! If you are sick of stupid childish books and are ready to enter the world of adult literature, this is the book for you. It's got comedy and romance in one. My favorite! This is a great find.

One of Jane Austen's best

Mansfield Park: Authoritative Text, Contexts, Criticism (Norton Critical Editions) - book cover picture

Mansfield Park is a complex book with situations that cause one to sit back and think about what has been presented to her/him. I found the first half to be a bit slow and was wondering where the charatcter development and plot line would all lead. However, I was rewarded as I read the second half and saw how the character development and siutations of the first half led to each character's fate. This book is definitely not for everyone, since it is darker, more serious (and subversive) compared to Austen's other works. especially if you are uncomfortable with subversive situations.

Fascinating account of what made Rasputin tick


Book title: The Rasputin File
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Rasputin File - book cover picture

I snatched this book off the shelf as soon as I saw it and I wasn't disappointed. This is the first book on Rasputin that actually makes him a flesh-and-blood human being. The missing piece was his religious beliefs and the Old Believers his teachings originated in. The author had access to the police files on Rasputin and to interviews with some of his followers that add immeasurably to Rasputin's biography. Fascinating.

Storyline and illustrations were incredible for any age

Stellaluna - Oversize edition - book cover picture

I am presently taking a Library Science class at my college. I am an education major. I must admit, I was not looking forward to reading all the required books, but Jannell Cannon is great. The illustrations in these books are unreal and so life-like! Anyone would have to love a little yellow snake, or a bat that lives with birds. The great thing about these books is that the storylines and illustrations are so real and completely outstanding. I have a four year old who now thinks she may want to play with snakes after reading Verdi. Jannell Cannon, PLEASE continue to write and illustrate! You are great and I beleive I am receiving as much pleasure from these books as my four year old!!!
