Last Call - book cover picture

"I will show you fear in a handful of dust," the poet T.S. Eliot writes in his groundbreaking poem The Wastelands, and Tim Powers has taken that fear and turned it into an archetypal romp throughout Ol' Possum's dreaded land of change.
Taking the symbols of modernism and the archetypes of the Tarot, Powers weaves a tale of wonder and adventure in the Wastelands of Las Vegas. Combining Arthurian/Celtic lore, Bugsy Segal , T.S. Eliot and five card draw, the book doesn't hesitate to drag you into it's magical mystical tour.
Powers continues to prove that low fantasy has a place in the publishing world, and that he is the master

it is really painful to read such a bad review as one stated by one person who claims to be a student. this book has to be read withb feeling, and just because the next generation is living so fast that does not mean feelings are let out of life. i hope that later in life he or she take the book again and see it in a new life, like an old friend you have not seen in a long time. this book is wonderful and it made me cry.

Destined to be a classic!

Book title: Gates of Fire

Gates of Fire - book cover picture

Pressfield's "Gates of Fire" is the best battlefield novel I have ever read, and is my all time favorite book. This is one of those novels that unfold like a movie. Except I doubt that you could ever capture this epic story on screen and do it justice. Pressfield's also gives his characters a chance to develop instead of being one dimensional like other adventure novels. That is what makes this story so much more tragic due to the emotional involvement you feel for these brave men.
I also should mention Frank Miller's graphic novel "300" which is a brillant story about the battle for Thermopolye in its own right.

Book title: Sinbad's Guide to Life

Sinbad's Guide to Life - book cover picture

This is just great humor and great insight from an awesome comedian. He most certainly delivers the hilarity, but there are a few somber times in the book where he is real, very real and takes a serious approach. He speaks highly of his dad, which I respect for 2 reasons. For one, if you have an awesome dad, like I do, and Sinbad does, you should express it. The second reason is because like myself, his dad is a preacher, and wanted nothing but the best for his boy. I guess I would suggest to read the book, not buy it on audio, because the person doing that might expect a stand-up comedy performance, and that isn't what this is about. With that said, however, it is very funny most of the time with the Sinbad humor that people all across the country have grown to love! If you love Sinbad, you'll love reading his book. He also teaches us lessons throughout the book about not taking ourselves too seriously. Have some fun while reading this book!

Decide for Yourself

Book title: Half a Heart
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Half a Heart - book cover picture

Hard to believe I read the same book these reviewers are trashing. It's far more complex and sympathetic on all sides, not sentimental but challenging (maybe that's the problem)and unwilling to accept easy stereotypes. Ronnee is no "tragic mulatto" -- she may be confused but she's much too dignified for that. And her father is no big black brute. So what's going on here? Protecting the turf,to keep white writers from poaching on territory that isn't "theirs"? I guess readers will have to decide for themselves but they should read "Half a Heart" and make up their own minds.

More Than 5 Stars

Book title: The Face of Deception
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Face of Deception - book cover picture

This book has it all, love, hate, suspense, terror and so much more. Its my opinion that this book would make a great movie.This book was about a woman (Eve Duncan) who had some really rotten events happen in her life. She does her best to over come her past with a little help from her friends. She goes to college and becomes a forensic sculptor, in the process, to bring home her past and set it to rest. But when John Logan comes into her life and gives her a offer she couldn't refuse, her life, her familys life, her friends lives and also John Logan him selfs life put into one of the most risky and dangerous position, * politics and murder*. I couldn't put this book down, it was fast paced and I found myself picturing which actors and actresses would play which part. If you like suspense and a great story line, then this is a must read!

You Can Negotiate Anything - book cover picture

This a absolutely fascinating book. We all have the potential to negotiate, this book unleashes that power.Most of the time we walk into a store and pay the sticker price. This book teaches everyone that they have the power to negotiate on everything.Although I did find most of the tactics are more useful for people with more free time (retiree's), the other tactics have been extremely helpful.And from traveling abroad; Germany, Morocco, Czech Republic, Poland. I can tell these tactics work internationally.

Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage - book cover picture

Six years underwater onboard a Sturgeon stretch and the oldest boomer. Blind Mans Bluff makes for great reading. Excellent overview, captivating stories, wrong about the crew attitudes. Most of us still keep our mouths shut, all of us never had any doubts or second thoughts about what we were doing nor why we did. If you did you were in the wrong place. Our crews only regretted the distance from our loved ones, not the pranks we played on the Soviets. Two thumbs up, however, I regretted the book didn't have more sea stories from the crews (glad to know we know some of us still remember what we signed when we got out). Politics is nice but the meat is in the acts. Nice to know what really happened to the Scorpion.

The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1) - book cover picture

I have never been so amazed at the greatness of a book in my life. It is a story about the struggle between good and evil, darkness and light, men and women! what great insight Robert Jordan has on how the genders look at each other. Not only is this story exciting and action packed, but it has many subtile subpoints that you can relate to your own life. I loved reading this book, It is a great book to read if you love symbolism, fantasy, action, love, hate, or mystery; or all of the prior. I would not be surprised to see it raised to the status of a classic after it's completion
