One of the best...

Daggerspell - book cover picture

Skimming through some of the other reviews I was upset by some of the comments. I just don't think that these reviewers really understood what was going on. Kerr didn't place the stories of past incarnations in between sections to annoy the reader. They give insight as to how far along one character or another has come along; what they've learned, and what they continue to ignore. Masterfully written that was a welcome change to Jordan's ridiculously pithy Eye of the World series. Overall a very clever book and perhaps my favorite in the series. While other authors tend to get bogged down in characters or overly intricate plots as their series progress, Kerr stays focused.

a big undertaking - but worth it....


Book title: The Fountainhead
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Fountainhead - book cover picture

This book is truly a great one, but you really have to attentive and persistent to "get" it all and get through it. I especially had trouble staying focused for the first 200 pages (paperback).One the book does take off, it is a rewarding ride, a thought-provoking journey through a time in America when things were vastly different (but - in so many ways the same?). Especially interesting is some of dialogue surrounding freedom of the individual vs. the perceived primacy of the masses, enhanced even more so given the backdrop of our events of 9/11/01 in the USA (GBA!!!!). Some of the dialogue is downright eerie in this context, and it almost seems that you could peel some of it out and use it as an editorial without it seeming anachronistic at all.Overall, a great read, and absolutely worth it if you can spare the time.

The Saga Continues

Sugar Street (The Cairo Trilogy, 3) - book cover picture

This is the third book in the Cairo Trilogy Series. By all means, do NOT try to read this book without having read Palace Walk or Palace of Desire FIRST--it would be like tuning in to a movie in the last half hour. This book opens with the father and his wife in old age, in their 60's, their children in middle age, and the younger (third) generation entering their 20's. It continues the interesting saga. The book finishes shortly after both the father and his wife eventually die of old age.This entire series is SLOW DRAMA (warning for those who like "action"), but one of the BEST pieces of literature I have ever read in my life. I have lived in the Middle East for 11 years, and this entire series REALLY shows the Middle Eastern culture and way of thinking.

Songs in Ordinary Time (Oprah's Book Club (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Faulkner fans rejoice-His successor is here. There are so few literary geniuses now, but MARY MCGARRY MORRIS is the exception. This novel sparkles and shines even when its grimiest characters are at their toughest. Her work was challenging, probably the reason why I didn't buy this one sooner. My commitment was richly rewarded. My heart ached with the characters. I found my self cheering them on and then swooning with their hurts and disappointments. I am surprised this was an Oprah book,I find so many of her picks to be "good reads", with lessons to learn, etc, but most are "literary-lite". Not this Oprah pick though. I was in so deep, I didn't know how MORRIS' characters or I would end up. After finishing, I have my answer - deeply affected and moved. Hooray-I see today that MORRIS has another book arriving this spring-FIONA RANGE-I'm getting in line now to order my copy. Thank you MS. Morris!

Haunting, Throught Provoking, and Well Written


Book title: Waiting : A Novel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Waiting : A Novel - book cover picture

Waiting, by Ha Jin, rested on my bookshelf for about 1 year before I got around to reading it. I suppose it did not hold the allure to 'read me now' when I first obtained it. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I finally picked it up. Waiting tells the story of a man torn between two women and two lives during the Cultural Revolution in China. I found the author to have tremendous insight into matters of the heart within the framework of Chinese culture. Lyrical prose, an interesting story and perspective, and incisive insight into the human heart all contribute to make this a great novel.

Excellent ideas!

The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night - book cover picture

My three-month old baby had a "hiccup" in his good sleep habits when we went on vacation, which is why I bought this book. Even for those who aren't having tons of trouble, it's an awesome book, filled with new ideas and solutions. We've been able to use some ideas to help our baby nap better. The best part is, unlike many parenting books, it's not condescending to those who aren't breastfeeding or co-sleeping! I recommend this to all my friends with babies. It's a great book with ideas to help EVERYONE, even if your baby is sleeping good.

My all time favourite book


Book title: I Capture the Castle
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
I Capture the Castle - book cover picture

I first read this book when I was a child, and then reread it so often that I almost knew it off by heart. I love everything about it, the eccentric characters, the strong visual images, the hints at sexuality, the wonderful, mysterious fantasy world that you can escape into. I too imagined it as a film, or TV series (I'd be the director and could choose the cast). I've loved reading all the other reviews, they brought back so many good memories. Thank you everyone. I lost my book about 20 years ago, but am going to buy another asap. I can't wait to read it again (and again)!

A really good way to master Dinamic linear models


Book title: Bayesian Forecasting and Dynamic Models (Springer Series in Statistics)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Bayesian Forecasting and Dynamic Models (Springer Series in Statistics) - book cover picture

As a reader with an economical background, mathematical texts are usually hard to be followed. Nevertheless, dinamic models through bayesian forecasting are afordable with this book. Introductory chapters on the bayesian learning algorithm and univariate models rough out the kernel of the issue. Once you dive into the following more complicated chapters you can get lost but the main idea is got. To avoid getting lost, several readings are necessary. Finally, last chapters for non linear models, models with exponential distributions and MCMC methods are really heavy going but a light reading can allow you to get a general overview.All in all, is a great workbook. The main drawback may be the lack of more practical examples to illustrate the theoretical concepts.

DeMark On Day Trading Options - book cover picture

Typically, I am part of the silent majority. I have opinions but usually keep them to myself. However when I see someone ignorantly slamming aomething I value I become vocal. By chance I happened upon a reviewer's critical evaluation of this book. I have been using the methods presented in this book to make exceptional trading profits. For someone to attack the merits of this book, that person must not be reading what I have read or is jealous of the iodeas researched and developed by the author. I opt for a combination of both and highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about trading and investing.

The Best Book Ever

Sideways Stories from Wayside School (Wayside School) - book cover picture

Nancy is my favorite character in the book Sideway Stories from Wayside School. I like it because... the chapter is very funny because if you think nancy is a girl you are totally wrong! It's a boy! He has big handsand feet and he thinks Nancy is a girls name. His class, Mrs. Jewls's class, thought his name was odd too. There are 23 people in his Class (not counting him). Before they had Mrs.Jewls they had Mrs. Gorf. I'm going to tell you about the whole story. So read it if you like weird books you will love this book !
