Highcastle: A Remembrance - book cover picture

On one level, this book chronicles the boyhood of famed Polish writer Stanislaw Lem. But on another level it is also a profound "Coming of Age" tale of not just one man, but of a Civilization. Lem's boyhood takes place just prior to World War II, and as he spins his tales of schoolyard politics, loss of faith in adults and the petty cruelties that young boys sometimes indulge in, it's hard not to see the connection with events unfolding in pre-war Europe; politics just as juvenile, the passing of Faith, the horrible cruelties soon to follow...Haunting and elegant book.

Sherry Garland, author of "The Silent Storm" goes beyound the boundaries of human nature we usually experience. Alyssa, who has just turned thirteen, cannot speak because of an accident that ocurred some three years ago. The more she tries to dig up her past, the more suspense is piled on. The characters that interact with Alyssa are even more interesting. You can't just read one page of this book. You have to keep turning the pages until you've savored every word.

The God of Small Things - book cover picture

I was told that Arundhati Roy wrote this book as a sort of protest againt the mind-numbing influence of TV and movies today. Well she succeeds in painting such vivid images and complex thoughts, that her book kept me away from the television for several days. This book is captivating. The story pulls you into its exotic setting and customs. It is the epitome of lyrical prose, as its words flow off the page. It has something for everyone: forbidden love, family secrets, passion, spirituality, and death. I don't want to ruin the book by giving away the plot, as it has more than a few interesting twists, but you should definitely pick up this book.

I felt like I was a part of this book!

I Know This Much Is True - book cover picture

It is not often that you find a book that allows you to feel for each and every character. This book does just that. When I was reading I was also feeling the pain of not only Dominick but of Thomas and their mother. I felt the same emotions that Dominick felt and I just could not put this book down. It is such a deeply written book, at times I forgot I was reading a book. It covered love, hate, joy and sorrow within it's 800 plus pages. I only hope I can find a book that can do the same for me again. I cried when I finished it and felt at a loss when I was done. Wally Lamb, a million thanks for moving me the way you did with this book. I am in awe of your talent!

I enjoyed this book more than anything I've read in years.

Cold Mountain - book cover picture

Ok. Circumstances may have helped. I live in California but most of my family is from the Blue Ridge foothills. I picked this book up in the Airport on my way to Asheville, NC to visit my mother. I'd never heard of it and just needed something to fill the time. I read most of it sitting on her balcony looking out over the Western North Carolina mountains. I read it slowly, savoring the words and the feeling as much as the story. Usually I send books on to my brother and sister but in this case I told them about it and said they'd have to get their own. I plan to read my copy again soon. Maybe late at night this winter by the fireplace.

An interesting development in the Xanth storyline


Book title: Yon Ill Wind
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Library Binding
Yon Ill Wind - book cover picture

This is one of the better books in the Xanth series. For the first time, we see the Demon X(A/N)th as a protagonist in a story, and watch him struggle under the limitations he agreed to take on as part of his bet with his fellow Demons. It was interesting to follow his growth from a callous, impersonal, omnipotent entity to something closer to human. If you like Piers Anthony's Xanth series and are interested in the development of the world of Xanth, I think you'll like this book. Ron Eber

A tapestry of voices from the trenches of revolution

Weavers of Revolution: The Yarur Workers and Chile's Road to Socialism - book cover picture

Winn's book gives a detailed (and Trotskyist) account of a "revolution from below" that transpired during Allende's "revolution from above." It depicts the struggles of textile workers as they grew conscious of their class standing, became unionized and, ultimately, siezed control of the nation's most prominant mill. In the end, however, Winn demonstrates how the Yarur workers and the Popular Unity government imagined different Chilean roads to socialism, and how this divergence brought the social revolution and the Ex-Yarur mill to a tragic conclusion. It is a well-crafted and readible book...a "must" for any student of Latin American history, social revolution or Marxist theory.

The truth about first-time parenting


Book title: Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year - book cover picture

Even though Operating Instructions was written by a single mother, any parent, mother or father, partnered or single, will not only relate to the feelings expressed by Ms. Lamott, but often laugh or cry in recognition. There isn't a parent alive that hasn't felt Lamott's rage, joy, and fear over their new baby, hasn't reassessed their own parents, hasn't been grateful for two hours alone.
This book would be a great gift for any new parent--much more useful than another rattle, bathtub or blanket, because it will leave them feeling like someone understands how they feel AND survived it.

A Pirate Looks at Fifty - book cover picture

I found Jimmey's book an inspiration to all of us who have lost the child within. This is not a mere chronology of a man who is love with himself (as some of the reviews have intimated) - no....this is a soul searching and self realization that I'm sure will touch many who allow it in. Written with a great sense of humor and a zest for living life to the fullest, Jimmy unveils for us all, the very core of the man behind the songs -the man whose only fear seems to be time and the quality of how one spends that time. Read this book and fly with Jimmy. Soar with him through the Carribean and lose yourself in a journey that we all, in some way, may take in our most desired dreams.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

This book is one of the best I have ever read. I am absolutely fascinated by Rowling's imagination. This woman must be a wizard herself to be able to create in her head as intricate a world as the world of Harry Potter. My friends and I are all fasinated with it. I ordered the fourth one about 5 months before it came out. I am so excited for the fifth one to come out. Hurry Up J.K. Rowling! We are all waiting for another adventure!
