Flanders: A Novel - book cover picture

I knew absolutely nothing about this book when I saw it lying on a pile in a bookstore with other newly issued paperbacks, nor was the author familiar to me. What caught my eye was the fact that this was named a New York Times Notable Book, so I picked it up, opened it at random, and read a little. The sheer beauty of the writing took away my breath, and I knew I had to buy the book and read it! This was a snap decision I have no reason to regret. I don't understand how lesser books become bestsellers, and books such as this, literate and powerfully written, languish practically unknown. Everything about this work is nearly perfect, from the narrative voice, to the surrounding minutia. It's a spare, tense, sad, and ultimately glorious book, and you MUST read it. Run, do not walk, to your nearest bookstore or on-line book-seller, and purchase this book. You will not be disappointed. Spread the word to everyone you know: read this book!

A Programmer's Guide to Java (tm) Certification - book cover picture

I got 84% alas... aimed for 90 :( However let me critique this book:I bought this book blindly - just by reading the other rave reviews here, and I was not disappointed. I cannot praise this book enough. It really does help you master Java without reading lots of fluff and wasting time. The authors have very high standards, which is why I predict you will find it becoming a classic (like K&R).Do not buy any other book. However, you need to additionally do online mock exams - again, there are too many substandard ones. The good ones are - this book's exam, JExam, Applied Reasoning, Bill Brogden, Absolute Java, Jaworski, Java Ranch Roundup. (Simply go to a search engine to find them on the internet)

Where the Heart Is: A Novel - book cover picture

I don't know where I heard about it -- but I knew it was about a girl who lived in Wal-mart. So one day I find it in the library and it sounded really good. Her names Novalee Nation, and all her life shes had a problem with sevens, her mother left her when she was seven, she's seventeen years old and seven mouths pregnant and so on. Then on her way to California her boyfriends dumps her at Wal-Mart. This is such an awsome, don't put it down book. Billie Letts makes it a point to show that no ones perfect and everyone makes mistakes, and not everybody is living a perfect life, its the best book I've read in a long time.

Specter of the Past (Star Wars.) - book cover picture

The Hand of Thrawn series is amazing. This book is great and anybody who reads it will instanly love it. I just finished this book and now reading the sequal of this book Vision of The Future. It wraps up loose ends that other novels leave and will leave you recovering from a blaster set on stun. The greatest Grand Admiral returns to wreak mayhem in the Star Wars galaxy so the New Republic thinks. I recommend this book very much and anyone who reads it will not be disapointed.

Horrifying...And A Very Good Read


Book title: Labyrinth (Aliens)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Labyrinth (Aliens) - book cover picture

This is a truly creepy novel. The way the Aliens are portrayed is astounding. I am a huge Alien fan and I must say, this book impressed me. The ending where Crespi and Sharon McGuinness were in the maze with the Alien drones running around was awesome. And Paul Church is truly a freaky character. If you're into the Alien movies, comics etc. this would be a great book. I especially like Crespi and Churches flashback scenes to their previous encounters with the Alien. This is a definite must read.

i read this book many years ago. it is rare that i will read a book over but i enjoyed it more the second time. i fancy books from the civil war and found the historical detail one of its enjoyable components the other was the characters of al and cole.i was left wanting to know more and hoped the author would carry on with the children of cole and al especially mindy. this book has become one i use to measure the enjoyment i receive with other historical romance novels.

Destined to be a Classic Instructional Book


Book title: The Plane Truth for Golfers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Plane Truth for Golfers - book cover picture

Finally, someone has cleared the "instructional" air to enable golfers (especially those that are golf magazine and Golf Channel addicts) to recognize which tips apply to them. Also, it's refreshing to see an instructor of Mr Hardy's caliber come out so strongly in favor of a swing type (the 1 plane swing) that the general golf community has been led to believe (by TV analysts and other highly recognized swing gurus) was inferior. This book did a good job of giving the reader a "side by side" comparison between the 1-plane and 2-plane swings. Although it's probably more suited for a 1-plane swinger, at the very least it enables a 2-plane swinger to understand he's a 2-plane swinger and heed advice accordingly.

All Night Long: How to Make Love to a Man over 50 - book cover picture

'All Night Long: How to Make Love to a Man over 50' is a sensitive, well written book filled with practical advice. After I'd read it, I felt compelled to share it, so I sent a copy to my friend and 'Twins' co-star, Danny DeVito. I knew he'd been experiencing off-stage performance problems so I figured the book would get him a long-overdue standing ovation. The following day he sent me this email:'Schwarz... I'm sure you meant well but I have to confess something. The book's meant for guys over 50... my IQ's 43. So I sent it on to Steven Seagal... he scored 56 on the MENSA test... but I think he cheated... he forged Johnny Depp's signature on the application.'Barbara Keesling has done it again. And she'll probably do it again tomorrow night. I feel sorry for the poor guy. He must be exhausted.

The Zone: A Dietary Road Map to Lose Weight Permanently : Reset Your Genetic Code : Prevent Disease : Achieve Maximum Physical Performance - book cover picture

More an eating lifestyle change than a "diet" and certainly not to be confused with Atkins, the zone works.I was diabetic and weighed 247 @ 5'10" and my "numbers" from bloodwork were so terrible they were scary.
I got this book on a recommendation from a medical student, read it all (it's very technical/scientific in its approach and requires some persistence to read it all). In 4 months I have lost 40 lbs, but more than that, my bloodwork numbers for glucose, triglycerides, and cholesterol are incredibly good. My doctors were thrilled and wanted to know the secret.It's no secret, it's the zone. If you're conservative, careful, diabetic, and willing to take direction for changing your eating habits and getting some sensible exercise, this book could change your life.Highly recommended.

Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight - book cover picture

I love the book, and Suzanne is great. I have seen others lose weight with it, but, NoT ME! Personally, I think the book should center more on what other varieties of foods can be eaten by "regular" people - not all this fancy stuff. I don't cook that way. Also, I think it should focus on people's questions more, rather than just the basics. There are those of us out there that need more questions answered when we run into problems like I'm having. What if you this...and how come that... should be included and also.... substitutions for this and alternates for that. These are valid questions when you're on a diet. And what about weight loss expectancy, including what if you GAIN?... Anyone having this problem but ME? Keep up the good work Suzanne, but we need a 3rd book with more details. I'll be waiting to read it. Thanks.
