I've been raised on horror movies, horror books, you name it, I can handle it. This, not so much. I do not, for one second, doubt the authenticity of this novel, because I think only someone who could has experienced this first-hand could write it so well, and with such a disturbing realism. Carcattera, unlike most writers, will get straight to the point, which I admire. There was no fancy poetry cushioning the gritty plot, and I appreciate that in a writer. Perhaps it was exaggerated upon, but I do doubt it. But I would warn anyone who will read it that at times I had to put it down because it disturbed me so much. This comes from a girl who saw her first R-rated film when she was four. And as if I wasn't disturbed enough. It's good. But only if you can handle it.

It's Wickedness Won my Heart

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - book cover picture

I was intrigued by the book after I read the prologue. In this opening scene we see the Witch (Elphaba) listening to Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Lion gossiping about who the Witch really is. To me that just set the stage for the book. The characters of Oz within the story are portrayed very realistically; they are all very much human. We see their strengths, faults, passions, and many more aspects that are unable to be put in the original version (since it was for kids. The book is very much an adult, or rather mature telling of Oz. It deals with such topics as love, jealously, forgiveness, politics...all things that are hard to comprehend as children. The book also does a superb job of showing the slow transformation of Elphaba, a passionate middle class young woman, to the Witch, a middle aged bitter woman who has had everything ripped away from her. My heart went out to her. All in all this is a fantastic book!

Tess of the D'Urbervilles: Authoritative Text (A Norton Critical Edition) - book cover picture

Since Hardy can be rather boring in his poetry, I expected that I wouldn't even be able to finish this book. On the contrary, as soon as I had started to read it, I couln't put it down! This is a work of great depth and Hardy has an amazing way of expressing himself, one that really captures the imagination (like Dickens)! I heartily recommend this book for anyone, Victorian-lover or not. The articles are also highly illuminative; this book is definitely worth reading more than once!

Dawn Rochelle, Four Novels: Six Months to Live/ I Want to Live/ So Much to Live For/ No Time to Cry - book cover picture

I saw "Six Months to Live" in the Library and it looked really interesting. I read it and I loved it. I read the next three books in the series. But the library didn't have "To Live Again" I had to read it so I asked the Librarian to order it in for me. When I was at the mall I saw the book and I had to get it! This series has the best storyline I have ever read. I would encourage anyone who likes tear-jerking books with a little bit of romance to read this series. Once you start to read it, you won't be able to stop!

Incisive and unconventional thinking

Power Base Selling: Secrets of an Ivy League Street Fighter - book cover picture

Power Base Selling is incisive, unconventional and a hell of a good read. The book started with a clean slate as to how sales (and for that matter, all business relationships)should be conducted, and it comes up with some completely counterintuitive positions. Each section of the book draws something from the warrior/philosopher Sun Tzu, often condensing the section's poignant examples and real-world techniques into a memorable sound-bite that I find myself muttering under my breath as I ponder strategies. Stylistically, the book is crisp and accessible. Since I first encountered Power Base a few years ago, I have given away probably a dozen copies, many to friends who aren't even in sales. Like Carnegie's "How to Win Friends . . .", the insight on the workings of business politics are useful for almost everything. Highly recommended!

I'll Teach My Dog 100 Words (A Beginning Beginner Book) - book cover picture

Beginning with "The first six words I'll teach my pup are 'dig a hole' and 'fill it up.'" this book is absolutely hilarious. I had never heard of it before my son came along, but it is one of his favorites and mine. It is whimiscal, clever, and just plain fun: "have a care, don't paint the mayor." The cadence and flow of the words are masterful.This nugget will surprise you. I hope you enjoy it.

The Winner Within - book cover picture

I received the book as a gift - and what a gift! The material covered is to do with team players. However, what actually happens is that if a person is open, he or she will find that this book gives personal growth as well. Excellently written, with real life examples all the way, it is invaluable. We have a project at the office that really needs to succeed, but without teaming it won't. This book makes the difference between success and failure! It has been said Pat goes on a bit now and again, but so what?! The focus of the book is to give people options, to make them aware of what to do and how to do - that is the essence! I have recommended this book not only to my office but to our training company that helps with team building.

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

Once again JK Rowling managed to grab my attention and retain it throughout 700+ pages. Imagination abounds as Harry faces a very challenging and trying situation. The book was funny, witty, and inventive. However, I was a little disappointed with the sad ending and felt that it was unnecessary. As I'm sure peple would not like for me to reveal the ending in case they have not read the book, I will refrain from divulging the ending. Still, it cast a slight shadow over the book.

Advanced UNIX Programming (2nd Edition) (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing Series) - book cover picture

I also have the first edition (and a previous book) and am an unabashed fan of Marc Rochkind's.
What this book promises and delivers is a catalog and explanation of Unix (including Linux) system calls.
The clarity with which it is done is a thing of beauty.
It is much more dense and extensive than the 1st edition.
After all, a few things have happened in the interim.:)
This is where Unix comes alive.

Pregnancy and Childbirth - book cover picture

I loved this book. It was full of lots of detailed information, much more detailed than other books of similar subject. It has an excellent section that tracks the development of the fetus so the mother-to-be can follow along, and in the early weeks of pregnancy, it even breaks it down day by day in some cases! I had at least a dozen books that I read cover to cover, but this is the one I kept going back to, because it was the one that consistently had the information I needed. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who is really "into" their pregnancy experience!
