A Walk to Remember - book cover picture

This was absolutely the Best novel I have read. I laughed,
smiled,and cried. Normally I do not read authors I have not read before, but I was drawn to this book. The movie is also good, but I loved the book more. The movie is more modernized and has some different parts than the book. If you see this book anywhere, pick it up and read it. It will be the most rewarding feeling. I highly recommend it to anyone. Especially those who are romatics like me.

What Should I Do with My Life? : The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question - book cover picture

Po's new book may not provide you with more answers, but certainly will leave you with fewer questions. It is not a self-help book. It is a compelling collection of vignettes describing people 'questing' for an answer to this question. Po is on to something. As a young professional seeking my own career path (during the boom I was a chronic job hopper), there are many stories here that spoke to me. I am sure you will find resonance in some of his stories -- Po covers a wide berth of individuals. There are dog ears and blue scribbles everywhere in my book. It reminds me of how my Lonely Planet guides look when I finish a dusty backpacking trip. The journey is somewhat similar.For those who are unhappy with their career, life, journey, or spiritual direction -- and I assume that this describes the most of us -- I highly recommend this book.A must read.

Recovering Skeptic

The Giver (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

Several months ago I came across this book while browsing the Newbery Medal winners in my bookstore. I picked it up because it looked like a quick read and for some reason I was convinced the book would be about a Native American Medicine Man who takes on a young student.To my chagrin, the book turned out to be about a communist type society. To be honest, I read the first 25 pages of this book and tossed it aside. Recently, I read a handful of the reviews at amazon and realized I may have misjudged the book. I returned to it, and forced myself through what I still believe is a very slow beginning. In the end, I am glad I read this book, as it eventually demonstrates the fallacy of the communist ideology. I won't tell you what happens, but will encourage you to read this book. And don't do like I did and judge this book too soon. Keep reading. Keep reading.

If I'm there and I can't have it..

A Flag for Sunrise - book cover picture

In an introductory POSC class in my undergrad I read (twice in a month)this book. Stone's life experiences render his pen dually effective in combination with his ability to come away reeking of authenticity of the environment he depicts. I went on to spend a lot of time in Central America a few years after this book's hook sunk in me.I am now reading Damascus Gate. His characters are all spewing wise hip proclamations, they all seem to come from an era in New York City that I question even existed. Every chapter ends with some mind bending quote. Who is this guy Stone? He has to be at least 80 by now...

THE ADVENTURE OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN


Book title: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - book cover picture

The book THE HUCKLEBERRY FINN, by Mark Twain is the best adventure book that I have ever read during the past few years. The book give me a lot of suspenses that kept me continuing to read until I finished with the book. The book describes each and every adventure that Huck Finn goes through with Jim, a slave that he met. There were times when they were in danger and almost died and there were times when they shared precious moments together like father and son, even though one is black and the other is white. This is the book that no one would want to miss if you love to read books that are fill with adventure and exctment.

Disturbing. Compassionate. Moving.

Running with Scissors - book cover picture

I don't recall reading another book where my jaw dropped for 200 pages. Equal parts shocking, horrifying and disturbing, the truly amazing thing is how Burroughs turns his tale into a story that makes you want to come back even when you're afraid to see what's around the next corner. He paints a compassionate picture of how the human spirit can survive most anything. It's an incredible work and one of the best of the memoir genre.

The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life - book cover picture

En una sociedad donde la p?rdida de la fantas?a est? matando el esp?ritu del hombre, surge un libro que se atreve a hablar del alma en la naturaleza y en la cultura, y de la recuperaci?n del asombro en nuestra vida diaria. El encantamiento es un poder del alma, una condici?n que nos permite conectarnos amorosa e ?ntimamente con el mundo que habitamos y con la gente que compone nuestra familia y nuestra comunidad. El alma humana tiene una necesidad absoluta e inexorable de encantamiento.
Thomas Moore nos invita, a trav?s de estas p?ginas, a explorar nuestra vida cotidiana -en el trabajo, la naturaleza, los negocios, el hogar- y redescubrir todo lo que ella tiene de sagrado y maravilloso. (Ed. Sudamericana)

Finally Belgarath's Point of View!


Book title: Belgarath the Sorcerer
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Belgarath the Sorcerer - book cover picture

What a different view of the whole picture (Belgarath's the one telling the story, and so you get his hilarious point of view the whole way through)! This book takes you back before the Belgariad even takes place, starting with Belgarath's childhood, and the earlier parts of his 7,000 year life. This book has all of the things in the Belgariad and the Mallorean that you only briefly read about, such as the cracking of the world, Belgarath's story of becoming a desciple of Aldur, Zedar's treason, The meeting of Poledra and Belgarath, as well as many other stories that are finally revealed in all of their glory in this book. This book is a definate buy for someone who has completed both the Mallorean and the Belgariad. It also clears up a lot of confusion that you might have encountered throughout both the series. WONDERFUL BOOK!

Simply the best book on the Dead

Searching for the Sound:  My Life with the Grateful Dead - book cover picture

I have been on the bus since the sixties in the bay area, when liking the Dead defined yourself to your peers as an uncool nerd and a bit of a weird-o. Nice to hear Phil's journey from the inside. He comes across as warm, human, honest and of course, brilliant. This dude can write...nearly as well as he can play. My wife, who isn't a head, loved reading it, just for the literate style and the anecdotes.

The funniest part of it for me was when I caught Phil in two or three errors of chronology or fact, especially about the business side of the Dead, mostly in the seventies. But he explains how that could have happened, especially during that dark time.

He reminds me a bit of John McCain...having been at death's door, he now has his priorities and values clearly defined and doesn't so much care what you or I (or Mickey, Bill and Bob) think.

A great read, a spiritual quest. Warm-hearted and full of hope.

Interesting Writing Style. . .

Above the Veil (The Seventh Tower, Book 4) - book cover picture

WOW! This is an amazing book. I've read all of the books in the series (actually, I've read them twice) and I really like the way the story stretched farther and farther, the characters changing drastically. I also found slight careless mistakes in this book-- Nix claimed that Milla's eyes were grey, while in the first book, they were green. Also, I felt this book was a change. For some readers, they might box their expectations by judging the characters, but Nix's other pieces show that he is capable of the amazing, so don't be surprised if the plot or characters swerve around drastically. In this book, Tal and Milla are still on the run from the maniacal Sushin, and encounter a rebel gang of underfolk. Milla feels the compelling urge to return to the ice--her characteristic flame slightly dimmed. But everything starts to fall into place in this book, paving the way for a possible ending that I believe will leave each reader breathless.
