Order of Books in the Ripley Series

The Talented Mr Ripley (Methuen Drama (Series).) - book cover picture

Since I wrote a review of The Boy Who Followed Ripley, a couple of people have contacted me asking about the order of the five Ripley books. I had the same problem myself when I was first started reading the series, so I figured it might be useful for me to put the information here. The order is: (1) The Talented Mr. Ripley; (2) Ripley Under Ground; (3) Ripley's Game; (4) The Boy Who Followed Ripley; and (5) Ripley Under Water. It is a wonderful series of books and I highly recommend that people buy all five and read straight through. You won't be disappointed. My experience also suggests that you won't be disappointed if you read Patricia Highsmith's other novels. I've read three others now, and would recommend in particular The Tremor of Forgery and The Cry of the Owl. The latter especially keeps you rivetted to the text from the first page to the last.

Hobb is a wonderful writer

Shaman's Crossing (The Soldier Son Trilogy, Book 1) (Soldier Son Trilogy) - book cover picture

SHAMAN'S CROSSING is the first book in Robin Hobb's new series. More importantly, after nine novels, Robin has left her "Realm of the Elderlings" and has created a new fantasy universe. Some people would have liked if Robin had kept on writing about Fitz and the Fool forever, but Robin is a real writer looking for a new challenge and not satisfied to write the same book over and over again. Her new book is a subtle piece of literature and a wonderful opening into a new realm as yet unexplored. Be courageous and make the journey together with Robin, but keep an open mind and an open heart. You will not regret it!

The Awakening (Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism) - book cover picture

Of all the books I've read in my lifetime, this is one in which the cover has worn most thin. Interestingly, I have a male friend who has read it an equal number of times and we revisit this story quite often as if it were an anchor to our awareness (awakening?) of female sensuality in a restrictive role-oriented society. I highly recommend locating the critics' edition as it comes with sketches of turn-of-the-century etiquette, courtship rules and fashion worn by women of Edna's social class. Despite the cultural changes between 1899 and 1999, today's female is still faced to some degree or other the challenge of maintaining a singular identity while filling the role of mother, daughter, sister, lover.

very good intro stats book

Book title: Elementary Statistics
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Elementary Statistics - book cover picture

I think this is a great textbook. I have been reviewing texts for an AP statistics course and have settled on this book as a middle ground between very basic texts and rigorous textbooks for math majors.It is not intended for math majors. I don't understand why reviewers are criticizing it for it not being more rigorous.It has enough depth for intro undergrad stats, yet is adaptable to lower levels so some of the boneheads I have in high school can comprehend.Excellent explanations. Very readable. Decent problem sets. I approve.

Complex, riveting, powerful, especially after Sept 11th

City of God - book cover picture

Ask me what this book is about. It's about the many voices of New York City, all talking at once. It's about the ages of man (and I mean "man", not people), and his evolution toward maturity. It's about faith in a world shrouded by evil. It's about meaning and where to look for it. It's about literature and how it's written, interpreted and understood. This a multi-layered book. I rank it as one of the best I've ever read, right up there with Rushdie's Satanic Verses.

My sister and I took turns reading each of the pages to each other.... we were rolling on the floor with laughter! It was Christmas day, so we were at our mom's house, and she had to come into the livingroom to see if we had gone crazy. The book is full of surprising humor. I love Jack Handey's child-like view of the world! I think all of us, as children, have started a sentence with, "Wouldn't it be neat if...?" That's what Jack Handey is all about!

The book is great but I hated the paper qulaity

Book title: Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl - book cover picture

I have no doubts in saying that the book is by far the most moving and saddest true story I have ever read. The life of a young girl through her diary, her deepest secrets , the way she potrays what they are going through in her innocence is just a reminder of how terrible their (The Jews) suffering was and we cannot even begin to imagine to what low levels humans can go to cause another human pain.

the paper quality of the book is not satisfactory, i expected better because you want such book to last you forever not look worn away within a month.

Four Past Midnight (Signet) - book cover picture

If you're a Stephen King fan, this is a must read. Its four novellas that take you on very different rides, all ending at the same junction: death and an acceptance of that not all things can be explained.

My favorite is the Langoliers. I've read this book a long time ago and have still remembered each story. I am now hunting through my bookshelves to find it so I can reread!

If this is your genre, then you should get it.

The Terrible Prison

Book title: Holes (Readers Circle)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Holes (Readers Circle) - book cover picture

This story takes place at a camp called Camp Green Lake , and it used to be a lake, but had dried up. And it also took place at God's Thumb when Zero and Stanley eat tomato's and had drank water so they survive, and could live another day, but it tells events through the past and then switches through the present.

This book is mostly about Stanley Yelnats, Zero, and Kate Barlow, But there is also the warden and the other kids back at Camp Green Lake. And one the main events is when Stanley's great great great grandfather stole a pig and Stanley said it had cursed him and his family.

In my opinion I think this book is best book in the world , and that anybody would love to have this book because its fun to read, interesting, and it is a awesome book, and it also is a good book because I like it how Stanley and Zero stick up for each other.

The Happiest Baby on the Block : The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer - book cover picture

This book has done wonders for our family! I got the book when our 10 week old baby was about 5 weeks old. He had just started having long fussy periods at night between feedings. I would pace the floor until I could feed him again. I even resorted to nursing him more frequently..every hour or 30 minutes...nothing worked. Once I read this book, I had an effective way not only to calm Cole, but to put him to sleep. Now we use the Cuddle Cure to put him to bed at night as well as down for naps when he gets fussy during the day. This technique has provided us with a way to calm him and to put him to sleep. We use this technique now every day. A definite must have for new parents.
