Two Cities: On Exile, History, and the Imagination - book cover picture

An outstanding portrayal of the immigrants' dilemmas. But the immigrants in "Two Cities" have nothing to do with the United States. They are exiled from Lvov, an ancient Polish town incorporated to the Soviet Union as a result of World War II, and sent to the post-German city of Gliwice in southern Poland. Everything that comes from Lvov or reminds them of Lvov is sacred while everything else is worthless. A child growing in the dual world of imaginary Lvov and real Gliwice has trouble finding his identity. He returns to the past, examines and questions the drama of the war, and struggles to reconcile his life with the semi-imaginative world that surrounds him. Two Cities as well as other short stories included in this book are true masterpieces but must be read with some minimum background on post-war Poland.

Beautiful paperback of this modern masterpiece

The Other Anna : A Novel - book cover picture

I was delighted to see that this wonderful novel was being reissued in paperback. Snap it up now, before the vagueries of market forces get their way with this work, a rare touching piece of literary fiction! Plot, characterization and setting all tell perfectly the story of a girl coming of age, but above all, the writing is what makes me come back to this work again and again. A real command for portraying the complex magic realism of everyday life make this head shoulders one of the top published works in America in this year, or any.

Burnham's Celestial Handbook: An Observer's Guide to the Universe Beyond the Solar System (Volume 1) - book cover picture

I was impressed with these books (set of 3 volumes) the very first time I saw them.The introduction in the first book brings a beginner up to speed on what is really happening 'out there'. For beginners and seasoned amateurs alike, it helps you to appreciate the objects in the universe, their sizes, the scale of the universe, and our place in it. They help a person to answer the question, "What do I look for?". The long introduction is both a fine tutorial, and a great review, to help one get and keep 'the big picture' in mind.The books inculde a massive amount of detailed information on objects in every constellation. They earn their own way to a place in my library.

Midnight Bayou - book cover picture

This book was great. I didn't think I was going to like it after reading the prologue. Once you begin this book clear your day and be ready to get sucked in. This book takes place in the bayou outside of New Orleans in a haunted mansion. The leading man, Declan, has given up a successful law practice in Boston and has re-located to the bayou to re-construct a mansion that he felt a pull from during his early college years. Then he is met by the sexy Angelina. You feel their fire for eachother as soon as the pages introduce their two characters. He is living in a haunted mansion and refuses to leave. This novel had romance, suspense, and drama. I really enjoyed this book, if your'e a Nora Roberts fan, you will not be let down. After reading this I know that it is a book that I will re-read in the future.

A Masterpiece in Women's Health

Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health (Revised Edition) - book cover picture

This revised and updated version of Toni Weschler's book is a true masterpiece in the field, and even more so than the original, is a book that all women should own. I have used fertility awareness for years as a successful method of birth control, and have no doubt that I will be able to use the very same method to maximize my odds of a quick pregnancy. But more importantly, and as the author stresses throughout, this is basic gynecological information that all women should know. That is it presented in a light, accessible and very well written style is just icing on the cake. Get this book for yourself, and then get another for your daughter or niece. I think this is an important book that will have a large impact in the field for many years to come.

The Path of Daggers (The Wheel of Time, Book 8) - book cover picture

From book one, WoT has been incredible. As stated in another reveiw, some people just want to see battles and blood and Tarmon Gai'don (SP). Even though PoD was signifigantly shorter and took longer than usual to come out (The first four books of WoT came out almost a year within each other and it may be safe to say that Shadow Rising was almost twice as long as PoD), it was still a great read. Jordan's writing has consistantly been excellent while some peoople just ignore that. If you don't like the series, then don't read it.

Interesting..Worth Your Time


Book title: The Da Vinci Code
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Da Vinci Code - book cover picture

For books of fiction this was great! I started reading The Code thinking it was just another hyped book, and was surprised that I actually liked it. The main character is well developed and his relationship with the female character is simple, without a force of romance as was in "Angels and Demons". The story had a nice flow to it with plenty of murder and mayham thrown in, detailed enough to make it plausable. The story line alone makes this books content a great 'discussion' starter, as all the publicity surrounding it has proven. You won't be sorry you purchased this one!

Stealing Jesus : How Fundamentalism Betrays Christianity - book cover picture

I thought I knew everything about fundamentalism, since I was a preacher's daughter, raised in a fundamentalist church. This book opened my eyes to fundamentalist history I had never known. I literally studied myself out of false Christianity by taking the Bible literally, as they taught me; I saw that my church was everything the Bible taught against. Bawer is astonishingly accurate, for someone who didn't grow up in fundamentalism. His analysis of the psychological attraction of religion that doesn't require thinking is absolutely correct, and the American religious history in the book has never been known, at least among Christians. People in mainstream churches think those of us who try to warn them about fundamentalist religion are just bitter; they underestimate the fundamentalist movement and the seduction it works on Christians who don't know the horrific mind-control it exerts on its disciples. Pass this book around your church; it opens eyes. Rev. Judy Romero-Oak, Taos, NM

This is a wonderfully written and organized text that students will hold on to and not sell after reading it!

The Last Dance : Encountering Death and Dying - book cover picture

I will be using The Last Dance for the third year in a course I teach on Death and Dying in Western Culture. This text does a marvelous job of addressing the socio-cultural aspects of death in America and the world. The chapter on suicide is both helpful and haunting. There are so many excellent illustrations and photographs in this book that it really comes alive for the students. It is clear that the authors are very familiar with their subject matter, and that they care very much about those who read this book. I cannot imagine a better general text on the subject of death and dying.

Message in a Bottle - book cover picture

I live about 45 mins. south of Wilmington, NC and felt right at home while reading Message in a Bottle. I lost my 22 year old brother resently and he was also a lover of the great Atlantic Ocean. He would go on the ocean for days to fish, and just enjoy the great wonders of the sea. I could not stop comparing my brother with Garrett. The tears came early in the story for me and did not stop until well after the book was finished. If you have ever loved and lost, take the time to get to know Theresa and Garrett.
