Masterpiece of political intrigue

The Day of the Jackal - book cover picture

Frederick Forsyth's brilliant thriller The Day of the Jackal is a gripping, entertaining, and extraordinary novel full of suspense and intrigue. Forsyth's quick pace leaves the reader breathless, as the pages flip one by one. The reader is entranced by the romantic assasin, the brilliant detective, and the politics which surround them both. A masterpiece of fiction, flawed only in its mysterious ending, it is a must read for all suspense enthusiasts

a fairy tale gone terribly wrong to make an exotic story


Book title: Stardust
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Stardust - book cover picture

At first when I read the summary on the book jacket, I thought it would be like one of those old, cheesy Victorian romance fantasies that drag on and on about love and lace. I put it back onto the shelf. A few weeks later, I picked it up and checked it out, and couldn't put it down. It began slowly, but described the setting with intriciate, and interesting, detail. The verbs and adjectives screamed 'read on, read on.' I was so intrigued by the reality of the Faerie market and the interconnecting stories. What I loved most about this book was its wit. Tristran Thorn is the perfect bewildered hero, and the star is a kickass original heroine. The several 'bad guys' have their own feelings and thoughts, and I thought the Lord of Stormhold and his sons was humorous. Every aspect of this book was creative, which is surprising for something that is so alike to a fairy tale. If you liked this book at all, read 'Neverwhere'; it's unlike 'Stardust,' but with the same wit and style.

one of the best books ever

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, by J.K. Rowling, is anexcellent book even my seventh grade friends read this book! Theythink it's exciting, and so do I. I gave this book a five out of five on my scale because it has adventure, like when he goes on the quidditch team when no first year is allowed to; he gets an excellent broom to fly on it with and a package guarded by a three-headed dog. Harry and Ron, his best friend, get into a lot of mischief, especially with Malfoy and his gang. Harry thinks that Hogwarts is a lot better than the Dursley's. My school is trying to get this book banned, so I have to read them while I still can; that's why I think people should read the books before their school bans them.

Your Skin and Mine : Revised Edition (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2) - book cover picture

My five year old is intrigued by this book. Although the book suggests using a magnifying glass to do so, the observations it asks the reader to make can largely be done by the eye. I read it to him at night and, lying in bed, he and I look at our own skins and spot the similarities and differences in a gentle game of observation. It encourages the act of looking at the familiar with a new and curious eye. And the information it gives is solid and uncondescending.

I wish I could give this book 10 stars!!

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - book cover picture

While I must admit, Morgenstern's version is more comprehensive... William Goldman does a great job of weaving the "neccessary" parts into a great adaptation of the original story. While I do miss the all-encompassing diatribes about the flora and fauna of Florin (makes me want to visit!), I agree, the story breathes life without them. I have yet to NOT be entertained by any of Mr. Goldman's stories ("Year of the Comet" included!), this is by far my very favorite. I hope you thank your father every night for telling you this incredible tale, Mr. Goldman, I know *I* do! (and if you believe everything I've just said - have I got a bridge to sell ya!)

A powerful book for those who are searching


Book title: The Celestine Prophecy (Celestine Prophecy)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Celestine Prophecy (Celestine Prophecy) - book cover picture

Many may disagree with me but I think this book is good for those who are damaged by religion. If we as humans don't believe in a god, somehow we create one to believe that there is something more out there. This book encourages spiritual awarness within all of us. I truely believe this book is fictional and this did not happen in factual accounts as the book is trying to imply. I believe James Redfield is trying to convey a message and the message is a powerful one. I feel he had to get his message across through an action filled fictional adventure. Like most of the stories of the bible is filled with action, lust and adventure. I'm not trying to compare this book to the bible but I think he got his idea based on the bible's formula of interest. This book is great for those who are searching for knowledge of the spirit and a spiritual awareness within.I believe life is a journey not a destination especially a journey of ones' spirit.

Excellent and age-spanning

Rating: 5/5

Glory Lane - book cover picture

I first read Glory Lane about five or six years ago and then resurrected it for my teen-age son. This book has become one of the few books that he and I both liked immensly. That the action takes place in our hometown makes it more fun than ever. Every aspect of it is believable. Assuming that aliens exist, every part of this adventure could actually happen. This is what makes it great. You can take this leap into fantasy, knowing that it could become a reality.

The Perfect Recipe : The Ultimate, Hands-Down Best Way to Cook Our Favorite Foods - book cover picture

I'm a beginning cook. In fact, I'm a remedial beginner. So I need loads of help, even for the simple stuff. I'm not going to get around to fancy French sauces for a long time. Right now I need some practical advice and some good, basic recipes for things like pancakes and Thanksgiving turkey. It's all there. Highly recommended.Pam Anderson's book is so easy to follow, so down-to-earth. That's what I've been looking for. I found it.

Under the Influence : A Guide to the Myths and Realities of Alcoholism - book cover picture

Before I read this book I had the slightest clue about my past and present relationship with alcohol. I was especially intruiged when they named off to the dime, the feelings of anxiety, isolation, guilt, and shame that I was feeling. All this time I was looking for reasons to blame my family for the way that I felt. While reading this book, I realized that my binge drinking on the weekends had been deteriorating my relationships with real people. And alcohol, my best friend, was the one doing it! This book offers fundamental information about alcohol and alcoholism that every single person should know.

Really one of her best.

N Is for Noose - book cover picture

I found Sue Grafton when I broke my ankle 5 years ago and have been an avid follower ever since. As soon as a new one comes in hard cover, I buy it. I have a craft business and we make wrought iron book ends, I try to have her books there to get comments and customers. This one is clearly one of her best. Having done shows in Bishop and the 395 area, it made it all the more interesting. We had a bet on what N would stand for and we all lost. I look forward to her O, we too will try to figure out what it will be. Thanks Sue for wonderful books.
