Holes (Readers Circle) - book cover picture

This book was great, if a little disturbing at times. It incorparates two stories (one about a boy who goes to "Camp Greenlake"- a boys detention center- on a false charge, and the other about a school marm turned outlaw who lived on the same land 100 years ago) that are a perfect match for each other. They both provide insights into the other story and finally come together at the end with a big surprise. You'll be rooting for "Caveman" the entire way, even when the things he does are beyond comprehension. Once again, Sachar has produced a wonderful page turner with literary merit as well.

The Year 1000 : What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium - book cover picture

What a terrific book! I bought the book after hearing Robert Lacey lecture on this subject, and the writing in the book is as graceful and comfy as Lacey was in his lecture. This is the best kind of history--plenty of scholarship, a wealth of fascinating details about life in the early Middle Ages, all blended nicely together in a vivid picture of the daily life of the people of the time. Lacey's scholarship sheds new light on a lot of Middle Age stereotypes--for example, the people of 11th century England were about the same size as we are, not short, as we've always been led to believe.My favorite fact in the book was the derivation of the word "sheriff," which comes from "shire reeve"--the manager (reeve) of the shire, a civic division that was developed at the time.The Year 1000 provides an interesting perspective on the Year 2000. Enjoy it!

THE place to start

Paul Wilmott on Quantitative Finance, 2 Volume Set - book cover picture

I bough 20 books before this set. I was wondering if the older Derivatives book was really worth $450 used without the CD. This is the place to start. It is written with style and humor coupled with a pace that is simple to adjust to. I judge a book by how many equations it has - more is BETTER! This set strikes a balance. The exposition is solid. It covers many specialized topics like Energy Derivatives (just a taste, mind you, but it is there to get us thinking). I guess the bottom line is this book allowed me to start thinking like a Financial Quant and less like a mathematical physicist. I have gotten much more out of the other more mathematical works because I understand how the Quants think. I still like The Physics of Finance by Ilinsky. This is more than the past Derivatives book (that makes up the first 65% of volume 1) and sets a real tone to understanding - this is just what I was looking for as I re-tool. Buy this FIRST. Read the TOC. Get moving!

Where the Red Fern Grows - book cover picture

This would be a good book for kids who love dogs. Where the Red Fern Grows is a story about a boy who gets dog wanting disease. With hard work and determination, Billy gets the dogs he had wanted, 2 little Red Bone Hounds. He lives in the Ozarks. This was an awesome book about hard work and determination, but most of all, the deepest kind of love which is when one loves someone else so much that he/she would die in order to save that one. I love this book!!

Missing the point


Book title: Practical Ethics
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Practical Ethics - book cover picture

A lot of people miss the point of this book and think that Singer wants to kill mentally defective infants... That's not his point at all. Rather, he is providing a sound argument that shows why it is more morally wrong to kill an intelligent non-human (like a chimpanzee for example), than to kill a mentally defective infant. If anything, Singer wants more rights for animals, not less rights for humans. This book is worth the read because it really makes you think about what makes you a human and what makes you a person. All of Singer's arguments are valid and they have the potential to make you reconsider some of your own deep-seated beliefs.

Romance and Suspense, it isn't Hamlet but it's a good read!


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

Don't be fooled by that horrible movie CBS had on in Feburary Sanctuary is a very good read. Granted if you're looking for a literary classic Nora Roberts is not the author you want, if you are looking for romance, mystery suspense all in one you've found it with this book. It's one of those perfect books for travel or a good read while taking a bath. I read this book over semester break from college and honestly enjoyed it completly. Trust me if you saw the movie, you're going to be pleasently surprised by how different the book is compared to the movie. The characters the romance the suspense, everything is intensified with this novel. Try it, you have nothing to lose but a few hours wishing you had that kind of love life!

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!

Star Wars: New Rebellion (Star Wars Series) - book cover picture

I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. I thought it was as good as the original star wars movies and should be made into a movie. I thought they tied in the new characters in perfectly and it was a great idea to have someone almost as good as a jedi knight as Luke. I loved the part were Luke is almost killed by these floating ballon looking creatures that could stun you. I also the the way they had Luke fight the big white creature then become friends with it. This book was so good I almost got in trouble by my mom because I wouldn't do my homework, all I would do was read this book. If you like star wars you should most definitely "BUY" this book because you are going to have to read it more than once because you will like it so much.

A gem


Book title: October Sky: A Memoir

Binding: Mass Market Paperback
October Sky: A Memoir - book cover picture

I've just finished off reading a book I picked up out of idle curiosity but turned out to be an absolute delight.Homer Hickham's "October Sky", from which the movie was made, is a beautifully paced and plotted book about growing up in a West Virginia mining town during the days of Sputniks and the Space Race. There are appearances by JFK and Wernher von Braun, but the central characters are his parents, his friends who help him construct rockets, and the community of Coalwood. Entertaining, instructive and inspiring all at once, it is a gem of a book.And all the better for being true. One of his rockets made it into space eventually.

Kinsey's in trouble again. . .

H is for Homicide (Sue Grafton) - book cover picture

. . .it all starts innocently enough, when California Fidelity, the company who's given Kinsey free office space for years in return for the occasional fraud investigation, gets taken over by Gordon Titus, an "efficiency expert." He's got it in for her from the get-go, so she takes a last-ditch fraud investigation job. Next thing you know, an old school friend, who's mixed up with the woman Kinsey's investigating, enters the picture, and to help him, Kinsey follows the woman clear into LA and gang territory. Getting out is not as easy as getting in was, either. This is especially upsetting to Vera Lipton, Kinsey's old CF friend, who just KNOWS that Kinsey will not be able to squeeze in a shopping trip for a new dress to wear to Vera's wedding. The last sentence of the epilogue, even more than the previous ones, is a "cliffhanger," and I couldn't wait to read "I" and find out what would happen next. Have fun, folks. . .
