Does Creation/the AfterLife meet 'your' standards?


Book title: The Great Divorce
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Great Divorce - book cover picture

This seems to be the question that powers the engine of this classic novella from C.S. Lewis. Of course the answer is, why should it? Creation is not ours to control, something Lewis seems to hint at with the impenetrable nature of the garden the bus passengers visit at the tale's opening. Inspired by a science fiction story, Lewis crafted a fantasy of his own that explores the rather petty nature of humanity that keeps our eyes (or souls) closed from the beauty of creation. The book features some splendid yet amusing passages (Unicorns in Heaven? Cool!) but it does not skip over the meatier issues of faith, free will, and the traps that they are capable of creating in our oft times bitter hearts. One thing I found ironic is that the one star reviews put forth some of the very same arguments made by some of the rebellious ghosts in this allegory. I think that is the very point Lewis hoped his fantasy would make. Highly recommended.

The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design - book cover picture

This is truly a fine book. The ease with which he explains complex evolutionary concepts is a wonder to behold. Few biologists will take the subject's guiding principle to it's logical conclusion, but Dawkins does. There are those who call him arrogant, and so he is. It is important to note however that he has much to be arrogant about. It is the success of biology in explaining our origins, and much about who we are that I think most repells certain kinds of readers. There are those who would prefer more mystery, something more supernatural about us. And it really irks people when a scientist, with utterly compelling evidence to the contrary comes along and says, "Wait a minute, look here, maybe there is something wrong with our cherished cosmologies, and mythologies that needs fixing." Such an approach quite plainly puts the responsiblity of changing our cherished notions in our lap.

Clavell's best work


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

Despite being overshdowed by it's suposedly better books in the Asian Saga, Tai-Pan is the best novel Clavell wrote. Having read all of the series more then once I can truly say that Tai-Pan is far better then Noble House and even Shogun. It's Clavell's shortest book(except King Rat) but still has all the magnificient plot lines. Dirk Struan is the Perfect Hero. He is not perfect but his power is felt even by the reader. Despite sevrel reviews that said that Clavell shouldn't have written in pidgin this from gives credabilty to the novel. The ending is Clavell's best, it is the perfect soultion and the book ends still in a climax. Tai-Pan is captiviting from the start and the 732 pages flow by as if they were just a few. I give this book 10 stars out of 5. A MUST READ

Fall in Love With Tuscany

Under the Tuscan Sun (Audio CD) - book cover picture

Frances Mayes has written a beautiful memoir about her home in Tuscany. Along with Mayes you experience all of the crazy unsettling ups and downs of purchasing a home abroad and attempting to renovate it on American time. Both humerous and faithful to Tuscan life this book inspires new life, new dreams and new hope even in the deadest of hearts. Mayes will leave you hungry physically and emotionally for a life well lived. She introduces characters who adapt to the whims of an American woman with no idea of how Tuscan life really works until she becomes absorbed in her new life and home. The book is FAR better than the movie and the recipes included will leave your taste buds in heaven. I recommend fresh air, a sip of Tuscan wine, good cheese, olive oil, and a dinner of sage and butter pasta and I believe you will melt into this book like I did.

Romantic historical fiction


Book title: Exodus
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Exodus - book cover picture

Exodus tells the history of Israel from early European immigration to Statehood. Whilst history can be a boring form of reading for some,this book weaves a romantic story that contains the elements of love, war, violence and pathos in a soap -opera fashion. Yet, the story is such that it grabs the reader from the start and holds on until the end. There is a bit too much detail for this reader, nevertheless the description is vivid and true-to-life. For teaching the history of Israel and the Jewish people (as I am doing ), I can attest to the fact, that young adults are fascinated by Exodus, regardless of the daunting size of the novel

The best reference for Proofs

Rating: 5/5

Mathematical Thinking: Problem-Solving and Proofs (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

This is an advanced book, with a lot of information on every page. I use it as a reference book, since it has hundreds of wonderful proofs and problems, along with thorough and concise definitions for just about every major branch of mathematics. It's highly recommended for anyone who is *serious* about mathematical proofs. Although the book is packed with material, it's a small book, so it's one of the first I choose to take with me when I travel.

Insanely funny and wonderfully erudite!

The Sot-Weed Factor (The Anchor Literary Library) - book cover picture

This is the funniest book I have ever read by far. Many times I had to stop reading because I was doubled over with laughter. Eben Cooke, the protagonist, goes through an astonishing series of travails as he loses his innocence. The wordplay alone is delightful-people are 'swived' and 'bastinadoed' throughout, and the 'Privie Journall' contains hilarious archaic spellings ('fry'dd',etc.). Sadly, Barth's later work is more interesting than entertaining as story. But this is a masterpiece.

Dairy, New Hampshire...top of the food chain!

The Hotel New Hampshire - book cover picture

I loved this book and finished in within a week by puttingaside all my other reading. I enjoyed the humor and as always, thedark twists of fate that befall Irving's characters. Each Irving book contains main themes; the big ones here are rape, incest, and the family unit. How someone could conceive of incest as a way to help a rape victim heal their wounds sounds incredible, but Irving pulls it off. There are several characters in the book that I couldn't help but chuckle at, like Iowa Bob and Egg. One reason I like his books so much is because of the comic relief his characters provide. Egg's deafness causing him to ask "What?" all the time was very similar to Homer Wells saying "Right!" all the time in Cider House Rules. Overall, I'd say this is my 2nd favorite Irving book behind Prayer for Owen Meany.

Manopause: Boomer Hits the Big 50 - book cover picture

Fascinating reading, an accurate description of male 'mid age crisis' in an amusing setting. Yet, a great deal of philosophical depth. Each time you read the book, you get new ideas and insights. Written in a style that makes it a pleasure to read, with many nuances that are derived with each reading. A must for all men 45-60. Their wives would do well to read it as well, to better understand the changes in their husbands.
