The Fifty Years War: Israel and the Arabs (BBC Books) - book cover picture

This book is fascinating and engulfing. Most importantly, however, it is extremely illuminating. The authors usually present both the Israeli and Arab viewpoints on every important issue and decision made over the past 56 years. They paint very human pictures of the sometimes larger-than-life personalities that have shaped recent Middle Eastern history, including Yasser Arafat, Anwar Sadat, David Ben-Gurion and Yitzhak Rabin. The book also includes glimpses into the vital role the Soviet Union and, especially, the United States have played in the formation of the present-day region. This book should be read by people who want to look beyond the sensational and provocative headlines the region creates and take a peek at the motives behind the actions. Although this book is fairly lengthy, it is definitely a page-turner that a voracious and interested reader may find easy to read in a single sitting.

The Eyes of the Dragon - book cover picture

I am not one who has read a lot of Stephen King books. I hope you take this into consideration when I tell you that, as a lover of a good fantasy novel, this is my favorite book. It is truly a masterpiece not only in plot but in its beautiful writing. This is one of the few books to which the cliche, "I couldn't put it down!" truly applies. It whisks you off to another land, in which you remain after you release the book reluctantly from your hungry grasp. I cannot express the wonder of this book.

On a Wild Night (Cynster Novels) - book cover picture

This is one of the better Stephanie Laurens books. I have read everything written by her. Martin and Amanda are perfect for each other. What I liked about this book and its twin On A Wicked Dawn is that these girls know what they want are willing to go after it. There is no missish prissy or denying what will happen between the to parties. Amanda realizes she must pull Martin back into the light and force him to face the demons that haunt him. It is a wonderful journey of discovery for both of them. I didn't want the book to end.

Merry Gentry's giving Anita Blake a run for the money!!!

A Caress of Twilight (Meredith Gentry Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

A friend suggested I try Laurell's Merry Gentry series after I devoured all of her Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter books. I was skeptical -- could they be as much fun? Well, I am here to assure you -- they're even more fun! I read both Kiss of Shadows and Caress of Twilight back to back, and came away amazed at the author's imagination. Sexy, scary, suspenseful and just plain fun to read. (Oh, and did I mention the sex ???)If anything, Laurell K. Hamilton is getting better with each book, and she deserves to find a wider audience. A Caress of Twilight just pushes the envelope of her talent a little further. Highly recommended.

Family life is complex especially when murders occur...

Seven Sisters (Benni Harper Mysteries (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

If you enjoy the China Bayles series you should enjoy this series of mysteries written around the life of Benni Harper. The characters are well written, with depth. The mystery is involved, not easily determined. The supporting characters delightful. I especially liked how while the mystery is solved it is not cleanly resolved. Life is complex and not easily tied up into a neat package with a bow. Even though I had not read previous Bennie Harper stories, I did not feel I could not follow relationships set up in earlier stories. I will go back and read the first books in this series...two of my favorite passages from the book..."A hurt can soften you like a good, wool blanket, or, if you let it, turn you into a pile of dried leaves, ready to crumble at the first footstep." And I couldn't help but smile, being from the Texas legal community, at reading "I dated an attorney from Fort Worth once. Emphasis on the word once." smile...enjoy...

A fantastic and worthwhile read

Winter's Tale - book cover picture

I first read this book back in 1991 and have since read it 3 more times. Suffice it to say this is easily one of my favorite books. Intermixing fantasy and history, Helprin weaves a story that immerses the reader in a world that almost could have been, and creates a sense of nostalgia for a time that never was. The only dissapointment I've found is that Helprin must have used up all of his muse with this book, as his subsequent novels pale in comparison to Winter's Tale.

Men Who Can't Love - book cover picture

Very empowering and "real-life". I can't emphasize enough how well these authors did their research and how they have brought so much clarity to the baffling behavior of committment-phobic partners. I thought I was way too smart and way to independent to ever be helped by this kind of information. Wrong. I wish I had read it so much sooner. If your pain and confusion has lasted too long, read this book before you spend $$$ on therapy. It honors your experience, lets you see (shockingly) that you are far from being alone, and speaks volumes to the confusion and sadness you feel. The internal strength and confidence you had will re-emerge.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM): Premenopause, Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty - book cover picture

Dr. Lee knows what most doctors at the time did not - that unopposed Estrogen therapy increases a women's risk of cancer and stroke. With recent events, where hundreds of thousands of women have been told to get off of hormone replacement therapy, it makes me wonder if most doctors are brain washed by the pharmeceutical corporations. Not Dr. Lee! His advice is natural progesterone cream, increase in vitamin and herbal supplements and change in lifestyle. A great book. I have been following his advice for one week and already feel much better.

Ancient History with an X-citing Twist!

Ruins (The X-Files) - book cover picture

Great book! Intriguing storyline-Anderson really did his homework on Pre-Columbian civilizations. Also touched on the fascinating theory that the Mayan's astonishingly accurate knowledge of astronomy and time was the result of extraterrestrial influence. Interaction between Mulder and Scully is first-rate. Funny, scary, and highly mysterious(as all good X-files are), this book is easy to follow for non-fans, and a must-have for X-philes.
