The Testament (John Grishham) - book cover picture

The only objection I have with The Testament is that it came to an end. From the very 1st chapter and paragraph John Grisham gets the reader immediately involved. He has you immediately wondering what the intentions of Troy Phelan might be? A man of tremendous wealth and a huge dislike for his children. The intensity of the book grows with each page. Difficult to put down. Just an outstanding novel, a true 5 stars.

White Teeth : A Novel - book cover picture

This novel is not easy to describe. Yes, there is a plot. But like "Bonfire of the Vanities," the plot is secondary to the humor, the creative style, the zany minor characters, and the cultural observations. Unlike Tom Wolfe, Zadie Smith gives her characters a fairly sympathetic treatment, even as she exposes their flaws and absurdities. That actually makes her slightly more enjoyable, at least to me.If four-letter words bother you, then stay away from this book. Smith's lower-echelon Londoners cannot speak two consecutive sentences without using the f word.Otherwise, when people ask me for book recommendations this year, "White Teeth" probably will top my list among novels.

A great book that deals with real feelings...

Watermelon - book cover picture

What an absolutely fantastic story.I have to say Keyes is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite authors. She is not afraid to deal with real issues and feelings. She knows how to make those little pep talks everyone has with themselves seem normal.Clair has just given birth to her first child when in walks her husband to tell her he is leaving her for the "downstairs cow"...You follow Clair as she goes through the Nazi phase, the sorry for herself phase and getting herself back to normal (but better phase). All the while dealing with living back at home, a newborn (wonderful Baby) etc.. basic life things.This book gripped me from the beginning and didn't let me go.

Fundamentals of Database Systems, Fourth Edition - book cover picture

Some people claim this book is too difficult for novices to understand, but that's just not true -- I was a complete novice! The book's not for *skimming* and I think that's the problem. The authors don't include extraneous paragraphs or even sentences, which means it's all necessary. Start at the beginning, maybe even take a couple notes and you'll be fine -- you'll be great in fact, there is wealth of knowledge and experience infused in every chapter. It is definitely one of the most intelligently written, clear, and complete Computer Science books I have yet read.

Boy Meets Boy (Bccb Blue Ribbon Fiction Books (Awards)) - book cover picture

Paul is a sophomore at a high school where the star quarterback is also a drag queen called Infinite Darlene. Being gay is so a part of this world that it's unnecessary to mention it almost. When Paul first notices Noah, he knows it's going to be huge. Unfortunately Paul's exboyfriend Kyle, who went on to date girls, has decided to drift back into Paul's life. Joni, Paul, and Tony have always been best friends, but things begin to change when Joni begins dating a football player. And Tony's ultra-conservative parents squash his extracurricular activities. Paul makes a big mistake and Noah turns his back on him. How can he make things right again, how can Paul rekindle the magic they all shared? Inspired by Patty Griffin's song "Tony", "Boy Meets Boy" is an extravagant love story that reconfigures the entire world to one filled with hope, love, cosmic fabulousness, and music. This book is a celebration of love that should not be missed.

A Terrific Read!!!

Amsterdam - book cover picture

I am a huge Ian McEwan fan, and bought this book the week it came out where I live. I read it in one sitting that very day, and I was stunned at its somewhat light-hearted approach at some potentially depressing topics. It's short, but I felt that it was just the right length. I wouldn't say that it is my favourite McEwan novel (that would have to be The Comfort of Strangers), but I was overall very impressed. Highly recommended!!

A Clash of Kings - book cover picture

Reading through some of the reviews posted about this book I was upset but at the same time in agreeance with the reviewers. I WAS initially surprised at the language and sex scenes portrayed in the novel. I hadn't encountered that in many other fantasy novels. Katharine Kerr includes some but they are more inventive and funny than offensive. Not to say that GRRM's use is offensive, however. It was refreshing almost to have an accurate portrayal of a kingdom vying for control of the throne by using some occasional swear words. We all know that those words were'nt invented for the '90s so people must have used them in GRRM's world also. As to the sex, its out there and its rampant! To not include it in one form or another in this type of story would leave out one very important key: the falibility of human kind. You can't have perfect characters set in this type of environment. the two just would not mesh.

Loved It!!

Book title: Young Wives

Young Wives - book cover picture

With this book, I judged the book by its cover and called it fluff as some of you did, but as I got into it, I really enjoyed it. I felt sorry for Michelle enduring that police raid, and she don't know nothing about nothing. That husband was a piece of work. Now Angela got the last laugh in the end indeed, but how could her best friend do such a thing to her? THen act like all is well? Yep, she got hers too. Then Jada's old man, ... wouldn't work if they sent the job to him, and now he wants alimony and the house?? Sounds unbelievable, but if I didn't go through something similar myself(sans house and alimony), I wouldn't have believed it either. Personally I love Ms Goldsmith's books. She seem to get average women who go through the worst type of things and yet, things work out for them in the end.With the exception of one book, I have enjoyed each of her books I've read. And look forward to her latest.

Fishbowl - book cover picture

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!! This book is hilarious. It made me reminisce about the period of time when I lived with two drastically different roommates in a 3 bedroom apt. This novel unfolds around three women who share living arrangements, don't really get along & then accidentally burn down their kitchen Unfortunately NONE of them have renter's insurance; so the reader is lavished with many wacky 'get rich quick' schemes as the girls try to pay off the $10,000 remodeling bill so their landlord won't find out about the fire and sue them. Did I mention I LOVE this book? As the ladies try to work, attend school, and oh yea, raise the $10,000, they learn a lot about each other and build strong bonds despite their differences. YOU will LOVE this book, too :)

I bought the 3 book set after hearing JK Rowlings on NPR and found Azkaban to be by far the most spellbinding. I wondered if I could enjoy these books but even middle age did not dispell the magic of her writing. My last thoughts after closing the book for last time was how I would make it another year for Harry's 4th year at Hogwarts. Harry is not the only one hoping for a quick return to school!
