The Last Hero: A Discworld Fable - book cover picture

What a fabulous, fabulous book! Not only is it another wonderful yarn by Mr. Pratchett, but it is filled with absolutely WONDERFUL art that is at times stunning, and at other times very humorous.
For fans of Mr. Pratchett's other novels, there are numerous walk-ins by his other famous characters, which only adds to the fun. The story is original, though obviously satyrizing numerous greek myths.
I cannot recommend this book enough, it is an absolute delight.

One Tree - book cover picture

It was amazing! Even though we were transported to a strange and unfamiliar world, which I found a bit unsettling. I loved the Harucahi (as always, they're my favourite characters ( : ) I almost cried when **** died, and I was at work at the time! Linden Avery continues to annoy me however, she seems too petty and selfish to be anyone who has the ability to save the world. I can't _wait_ till I get my hands on the next book. If you're considering reading or starting the series, do it! Perservere and you will be rewarded : ) Donaldson does use some words that are a bit complicated (I'm 15) but if you have a dictionary handy, they do add to the story. This book (like the entire series) is cool, and definately worth reading.

McClairen's Isle: The Reckless One (McClairens Isle) - book cover picture

The Reckless One swept me up into a world of wicked rogues and regal ladies. Raine is the ultimate scoundrel hero, wounded in his soul yet shrugging off his troubles as he sweeps into Scotland and romances the mysterious lady he finds haunting his castle home. They don't make men like that anymore, and probably it's a good thing because my heart won't take it. Can't wait for the next installment of McClairen's Isle.

Baseball strangles reality

Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop., The - book cover picture

Coover's novel represents the supreme good and the ultimate evil of baseball: Reality and fantasy respectively and interchangably. Confused? You should be. Coover's last chapter (8 - somehow conjuring the idea that it is, and therefore baseball is, incomplete) muddles, mangles, and meshes reality and fiction with fiction, turning baseball into "what it is": history, mythology, mind-altering, obsession, and finally an unrecognizable conglomoration of rituals and ritual-hungry beasts. For all the profundity and confundity of chapter 8, Coover's vision of baseball is undeniably chilling: A reflection of the social atmosphere out of which the novel came. If 1968 is not the most exultant yet the most shattering years of the civil rights movement, then baseball is only a game.

One of the best Young-Adult novels I've ever read

The House of Stairs - book cover picture

This is a book I read in my youth, it stayed in my thoughts from then on. I've since read it a dozen times and have obtained a copy for my daughter to read when she's ready. The vey adult theme of this book, combined with writing supremely accessible to a young reader, helped me to realize the power the written word contains. In short, a very powerful cautionary tale. Wouldn't mind discussing this with others.

my mother recommended this book to me at the beginning of 8th grade, and at first i was hesitant to read it due to its size. i finished it wishing it would be longer! the experiences marjorie has are extremely interesting, and she is an amazing and inspiring character. her relationships are particularly fun, and full of surprises. i will never love a book as much as i love this one, and ever since i've had trouble enjoying what i read. this book truly had an impact on me, and i'll never be the same. readers will treasure it for years to come.

Wonderful book for children and adults

The Four-Story Mistake (Melendy Family) - book cover picture

Having discovered this book completely by accident, I had no idea how good it was. The old house that the title refers to is essentially another character in the book, which makes the story that much more evocative of times past. What is also really great about this book is the way it focusses on both the home life (as opposed to school life) of the children and the way minor characters can suddenly come to the fore, full of life. Reading the first chapter aloud to my kids, I felt a sort of mental high that I seldom experience with either adult or kids' books. Need I say more?

Invisible Monsters - book cover picture

I JUST finished reading Invisible Monsters, and I thought it was absolutely amazing. Fight Club initially made me a Palahniuk fan, Invisible Monsters made me a bigger fan. This book is about a disfigured model who has to find herself in life, sort through it all, and rediscover what life is. Invisible Monsters is incredibly funny sometimes, other times, it's really deep and serious, with deep themes abound. I would recommend this book to anyone who liked Fight Club.

Memories of a Cuban Kitchen : More Than 200 Classic Recipes - book cover picture

Unless you get recipes from your Cuban grandmother there is nothing better than this book. The writer's lovely descriptions of her days as a little girl in Cuba and the can't miss recipes are what make this book a true gem. I was happy to see recipes for dishes that I grew up with but never knew how to make. If you have the time and calories to spare make the Pastel De Pollo it is divino!!!
The recipe for Mojo Criollo was great, I made it with Yuca for Thanksgiving and my entire Cuban family thought it was my grandmother's recipe.
Gracias Mary your book will be treasured in my home.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

You can see, hear, and taste Brooklyn in the early 1900's while reading this book. I connected with Francie, the heroine, on the first page and loved her by the time I reached the end. I finished the book last night and must find a new book to fill the feeling of vacancy in my heart today. While it's pretty hard to impress me these days, this book made it onto my 'absolute favorite, must read list' of books...please don't miss this one.
