One of The Best Sci-Fi Books Ever

2001 - A Space Odyssey - book cover picture

This is one of those classics science fiction novels that never goes away, and with good reason: it's a classic. Yes, in every sense of the word. 2001 is a mind-blowing and thought-provoking space epic that starts out somewhat slow, but is ultimately rewarding (what an understatement). Like in all of Clarke's novels, there is a main underlying theme, but it never gets in the way of the plot. This is an absolute masterpiece of SF, and anyone who is just getting into the genre, well, this should be one of your first reads.Also, I found this book to be very funny, something which I have found that few other people have mentioned. Maybe that means you have to be a "nerd" to "get" the jokes. Whatever the case, it is a fact that I laughed out loud several times during the course of this book. Read it, enjoy it, and watch the excellent movie version.

What a wonderful book!


Book title: Devil's Wager

Devil's Wager - book cover picture

This is the third in a trilogy, following Mary Spencer's DARK WAGER and LADY'S WAGER. Admittedly, readers may understand the story more fully if they read those two before starting this one.This final book is about Lad, the Earl of Kerlain, who appeared in the first two books, and tells of how he came to England and becomes the lord of an English estate. What I loved best about the book is how Spencer shows how difficult this was for an average American man, and also how very different the thinking was then between the English and Americans. Spencer also brings the War of 1812 into the story, which is unusual for a Regency, and deftly shows how this influenced both societies at that time. This was so refreshingly different from the usual historical novel that I can't help but recommend it to anyone who loves a good Regency.

Lost in Your Arms (Avon Romance) - book cover picture

I could not put this book down ! I'm so sorry that some other readers did not enjoy it because I felt this was the best Christina Dodd book yet. I found there to be many plot twists and turns and I found myself scrambling to keep up with the mystery. The characters were fully developed and very multi-dimensional. Both Enid and "Stephen" were characters who had flaws, but for whom you were rooting. I also enjoyed being reacquainted with Celeste and Mr. Throckmorton, from a previous Christina Dodd book.This book is packed with drama, romance and mystery. I found it be an enjoyable read and very much worth 5 stars.

Have an Out-Of-Body Experience in 30 Days: The Free Flight Program (30-Day Higher Consciousness) - book cover picture

Normally I don't commit to the written word, I just read them. However, after a long cool bath on a hot summer day, I found myself wanting to just float away with a good book. Oddly, my grandson Teddy rushed in from the orchard where he had been dilly dallying all day and handed me this little jem. Prayers were answered. All I needed was a little lemonade to perfect the evening. Simply put, I read, reasoned, and was ultimately guided to a world my poor ex-husband only dreamed of, rest his soul. As those British people always say, bravo.

Great book; totally irreverent

Bored of the Rings: A Parody of J.R.R. Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings - book cover picture

I read this book 23 years ago, and a couple of times since. Personally, I love it! It's a no holds barred book, full of irreverence for everything. The point of the book is to make fun of "Lord of the Rings," and they hold back on nothing. (Don't say you weren't warned.) If you're all about political correctness, don't even think about reading this book. On the other hand, if you think the world sometimes takes the original series way too seriously (even though you like them too,) you'll probably like this book.

Quite conceivably the most amazing book ever written


Book title: The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - book cover picture

The greatest Love story of all time - Not one couple a century is this lucky. If you read it, it will make you truly happy. The suspense, the humour, the comedy, the crying, the starlet and the psychiatrist wife all go to make this book probably the best collection of good parts that I have ever had the fortune to read.


Life isn't fair, and this book tells you that but it also tells you that you should never give up trying for what you want. No matter what it is, if you want it badly enough, you have to keep trying. It took me years to find a copy - I have now bought 4 - I lend it out and never see it again!!


If you haven't read this book, what are you reading this for - go buy it!!

The Collector (Back Bay Books) - book cover picture

Well, it has been almost 6 years since I read this book as assigned reading for an English class I took in highschool. I don't know why I am drawn to this book again, but I seem to recall the horrific storyline and suspenseful plot. At first I thought this book would glorify the next Goeferey Dahmer's of the world, but upon recollection it had the opposite effect.A intense story that won't let you put it down until you finish. Simply masterful...

Best in the series so far.

Seven Sisters (Benni Harper Mysteries (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Seven Sisters is another triumph for Earlene Fowler. I have read every book in the series and have enjoyed every one of them. She writes so well that it seems as if the reader were in the story listening to the characters' conversations. Everyone can relate to the family strife that goes on in the book. As usual Grandma Dove and Emory made me smile. I was also glad to see more of D-Daddy and other characters. I look forward to the next book.

Man, I liked this book.

The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1) - book cover picture

I thought this book was a great adventure. The pacing was quick. The descriptions were vivid. And I liked how many things seemed familiar and strange at the same time. I enjoyed it when Robert Jordon hinted at the meaning of things in the beginning, like Aes Sedai, only to reveal more later. I think the characters are nicely developed: some change over the course of this book; others are more fully disclosed.I liked that this book wasn't simply good vs. evil. I felt the struggle was more complex. The forces of good and evil seem to have more in common with each other than the forces in between.The book also has a huge background story with it's own mythology. The setting is detailed, and the societies are distinct.I liked this book better than the Fellowship of the Rings.

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3) - book cover picture

I started reading some of the reviews already in place, and had to add some notes. I am not even halfway through! Martin is the first sci-fi writer I have read (yes,even Tolkien) who does not give you the "brave, determined, nobodies" who go out to battle the "all powerful, all evil, never born-never died" bad guy. No character in the story is faultless. None are completely demonic. Sometimes they win, sometimes they get their heads cut off. In fact, this series is more "realistic" that most of the spy-vs.-spy, Ludlum, type fiction. It's a great book, so far. It is a long read. But, I find that I read some here, walk away, and come back a few days later- actually anticipating reading what happens next.Well, there you go. If you are new to George Martin, get A Game of Thrones and catch up with us.
