Inside the Kingdom : My Life in Saudi Arabia - book cover picture

This is a wonderful read and is fascinating. This biography chronicle's Carmen's life -- from her rich tale of meeting and falling in love with Yeslam. The flavour of the 70s and her eventual move to Saudi Arabia. This is where things get interesting. As an American, it is very interesting to get this glimpse from this very strong woman's perspective on a hostile society. The stories of the Binladin family itself and her life (as a Swiss westerner herself) are riveting and very enlightening and educational. Of particular interest is the underpinnings of the corruption of the Binladin family, including Osama, and the turning of Yeslam once they arrive into Saudi Arabia. Are the Binladins all in the same hostile group as that as Osama, who she briefly encounters?

A heroic tale and a wonderful read. Highly recommended!!

An Outstanding Translation

Book title: The Iliad of Homer
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Iliad of Homer - book cover picture

I am happy to see that this translation of The Iliad of Homer has remained in print. My copy is over 25 years old and I still regard it as my favorite. Mr. Lattimore has sought to preserve the meaning of the Greek words and the didactic hexameter rhythm, including the additional phrases (such as the warlike, breaker of horses etc.) that make the Iliad poetry to be recited, not read. I like the flow of the words and their cadence, and sometimes read aloud. Also of importance is the introduction to the Iliad by Mr. Lattimore where he provides an analysis of the poem, the Iliad in the context of the story of Troy, the unity of the poem and the figures that populate this heroic tale. This book is not only an outstanding translation but is also a resource for understanding the Iliad. Many scholars have regarded Lattimore's as the finest translation of the Iliad and I think that time has proved this to be an accurate prediction.

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work - book cover picture

Gottman debunks the pop-psychology theories and goes for the facts. His books are GREAT for those of us too cynical to swallow the latest relationsip fad, or for those too rational to believe we're all born into a box we can't get out of.Gottman's approach is practical, sensible, and open to all types of people and all types of relationships. You don't have to give up who you are or try to make your marriage look like someone else's. Just start with simple steps to do more of what works to help your relationship, and begin to recognize what you might want to do less.Best of all, it's all backed by science! Gottman doesn't just preach his assumptions and opinions. He's actually studied real people for three decades, and he has great examples of how similar signs of hope or problems show up in situations and people that may seem very different.Even my husband, phobic of psychology, was willing to talk about the ideas in this book. There is no higher praise.

The Chosen

The Chosen - book cover picture

What a find! Not sure how I stumbled upon this, but I'm glad it came my way. I am not Jewish, really not even religoius at all, but you don't need to be Jewish to appreciate the humanity in this story. The writing is masterful. The characters and their world come so alive when reading this. Eaxacly what happens to them is not even as important as just being able, through the author's magic, to inhabit their special world for a short time. A very moving story that should not be missed. Also, the sequel, The Promise, is at the same level. I read them in reverse order because I did not know about The Chosen until after I read The Promise, but even in this order nothing was lost.

A Walk in the Woods - book cover picture

I kept getting told by a great number of people to read this book. So I finally ordered it last weekend and started it two days ago. I couldn't put it down. I love it! Absolutly love it! I can so relate when he talks about the fact of sleeping terribly light out in the woods and waking up in the middle of night terriefid cause you heard a strange moise right in your area. I grew up about 30 minutes from the Delaware river gap, and went hiking in that area on the AT as a child with my parents many times. And the way he described the Gap reminded me of all those good times. I finished it this morning and have already sent it to my brother and recommended it to a bunch of other friends. A definate must read and a keeper for the bookshelves so when I get old and grey I can pick it up and remmebr those many times I went camping and hiking and having a great laugh. And read it anywhere even if you are getting strange looks from people nearby for laughing!
