Perfect Sequel to a True Classic!


Book title: The Lost World
Rating: 5/5

The Lost World - book cover picture

The original Jurassic Park ranks (in my opinion) among the greatest movies/books ever. I didn't know what't expect when I started this book but it came very clear after the first dozen or so pages. They have found the OTHER InGen island which happens to be populated with hundreds of dinosaurs, living without restraints of any kind. In essence, a Lost World. Personally, I think that this book is even better than the first although the movie version was somewhat lacking (though still enjoyable). The best aspect of this book was how, unlike the first, the characters are heavily armed and have hi-tech machinery at their fingertips. It's interesting to see how the dinosaurs react to motorcycles and high-speed jeeps. The chase scenes are incredible and while the characters are a tad shallow at times, they are fun to read about. Surpasses the original in every way except originality. Absolutely Mind-Blowing!

Finally, a sequel that out paces the opening book.


Book title: The Price of Power
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Price of Power - book cover picture

In his sequel to the "Balance of Power" James Huston provides a riveting extension of the driven political and military personalities in a complex south seas terrorist/Washington D.C. drama "Price of Power". Although the novel was chock full of military and legal details, Huston avoids the overload that often loses many readers. Instead, he provides a page turning, intriguing read that turns into an edge of seat experience. The sequel can be read separately but is most effective following the initial book. The only disappointment comes when you have to close the cover to depart the plane or hit the sack. I highly recommend it to those that like the legal maneuvering of a Grishom novel or the suspense Clancy provides. Huston puts it all together.

His funniest Book!

Downsize This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American - book cover picture

If you're new to Moore (maybe after seeing his Oscar speech or Bowling for Columbine) and you're thinking about reading one of his books then start with this. It's his first and funniest book. Stupid White Men is great, but I didn't bust a gut like I did when I read this one.Here's my suggestion: read this one whenever and then read Stupid White Men and Dude, Where's my Country back to back. Also, be sure to watch his films for a more moving expirience.

Best Study Guide for the TEA

Special Agent Deputy U.S. Marshal: Treasury Enforcement Agent (Special Agent, Us Deputy Marshall, Treasury Enforcement Agent, 9th ed) - book cover picture

I bought this book when I applied for the US Customs and Secret Service this past summer. In combination with the study guide Customs sent, I felt prepared for all three sections of the TEA Exam. The questions in the book were realistic in terms of content and difficulty of the exam. The investigative questions were actually more difficult in the study guide than the actual test. The math and verbal reasoning sections was about the same complexity as the study guide. I reviewed the other study guide that is available and it had very little relative content, particularly with the math section because it was far to easy.I passed the test and it is not overly difficult if you are prepared for it, but it should not be taken lightly. I recommend using the Arco book instead of the other TEA study guide that is available over the web or book stores.

Unexpected Depths in a Good Read


Book title: Starship Troopers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Starship Troopers - book cover picture

This is yet another in the long string of solid reading broughtto us by Robert Heinlien. This book has enough battle scene thrillsto keep the most action loving reader happy, with enough depth and humanness to the characters to let the rest of us enjoy the book as well. Heinlien was adept at making you think about why the people were doing the things they do. There are always small commentaries about why these people are out there. He also manages to include some fair jabs of social commentary as well. His ideas about child rearing and democracy in particular seem to come out here. I really enjoyed this book, and I think that anyone from 12 to 200 will find something in there to like.

The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, Part 2) - book cover picture

The second part of Tolkiens trilogy is perhaps the most encompassing and captivating. It is a true symbol of Imagination, colors,fantastic characters and epic Battles.
It is not easy to forget the slimy Gollum or the Touching devotion Sam showes his Master at the End of the Book.
Unlike the other two Novels this one does not suffer from a lack of supense, nor is it in anyway overexaggerated. Through ceartain part one truly imagines he can hear the pages breathing. A true classic and an epic symbol of Moralistic Fantasy which in many ways surpasses the recent Movie.

I Wonder What Language The Others' Copy Was Printed In...

Ship of the Damned - book cover picture

I loved this book. I thought that the plot was very intriguing and it kept up at a nice clip. The characters were great, especially the big, dopey guy Ralph. I can just see him when he was in elementary school, walking down the halls, the little kids just tossed their milk money at his feet. He'd probably just marvel at the shinyness of all the dimes on the floor. He's "special" and he assists Jett & his team to bring down the "Specials" (ones with teleketetic/psychic powers).Once again, I'll tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and you will too if you like sort-of mind-trippy material.

A fantastic book, in all senses of the word.


Book title: Martin Dressler : The Tale of an American Dreamer
Rating: 5/5

Martin Dressler : The Tale of an American Dreamer - book cover picture

Reading the other reviews of this book on this site I feel that the readers did not get what it was about. It is fantasy, and in the best tradition of Borges and the Latin-American practioners of "fantastic realism". The Grand Cosmo Hotel is not something of this world, but is rather an excursion into what should have been: not what was, or what might have been. The New York City of this book is the city of dreams, and dreams are important to all of us. To criticize the book for becoming fantastic is to overlook its intent. Millhauser is a fabulist, and should be read as such. I have only read two other of his books (Little Kingdoms and From the Realm of Morpheus), and suggest them to anyone who enjoys a fantastic world.

a personal testament, for better or worse


Book title: Birthday Letters
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Birthday Letters - book cover picture

Some time ago the popularity of this tome was criticized as being fueled by "the Oprah factor" more than genuine literary interest. But after all, poetry is at its most powerful when the reader can identify with the speaker, and it is probably for the better that we possess the knowledge that makes it possible regarding this collection. Hughes may have been cruel towards Plath, but that is not for us to judge. What is indisputable is that Hughes has retched out every word in terrible agony. It is a heartbreaking testament.

He loves me!!

Binding: Paperback
The Inner Voice of Love - book cover picture

This book was my anchor when I was sick and unable to take care of myself and my family. I read the whole book like a weak soul seeking for instant strength. Halfway through, a voice kept telling me to "Stop and listen to me". I stopped and opened to a random page and read what God was telling me "I love you and My love is enough for you". In conjunction with my daily scripture readings I hear God's loving voice amidst my own share of challenges and successes as well. A perfect gift of love.
