Dune (Dune Chronicles (Econo-Clad Hardcover)) - book cover picture

To write about SF is very difficult, Asimov and Clarke are perhaps the first names that come to mind. Moreover, stories must be scientifically possible, at least a little. I think that Dune is not very SF, and yet, it is a landmark in storytelling. Frank Herbert conceived the best Political novels ever. His style, unsurpassed by any other writers, should be the guideline to future writers of this kind of novels. I have just finished Foundation, and some months ago I re-read 2001. These are classic SF. But Frank Herbert's Dune will always be the best political novels. Period.

Mother Earth Father Sky - book cover picture

Thanks to an incredible author,Sue Harrison,I found myself thinking about this book's characters and adventures even after I'd read into the next book. Her books are masterfully researched and the life of Chagak has the reader enduring her pain, her happiness and love, and her ability to never give up. Sue allows you walk in the characters shoes and you can believe you're right there with them.Two Thumbs Up to a fantastic author!

A very funny trip around the world with Geoff and Bert

Out of Sheer Rage: Wrestling with D. H. Lawrence - book cover picture

Out of Sheer Rage was a very entertaining. I heard the NPR interview with the author and went to find the book... It's not about Lawrence in the way that Watergate's not about Nixon. Mr. Dyer can document malaise like no other -- he has a strange obsessive way that puts him in sympathetic tandem with his subject. I still laugh when I think about Dyer's take on deconstruction early in the book, and his views of academia are dead on. Not to be forgotten, the travel aspect of this is great as well. The things that make Dyer funny and charming (or not, depending on your sense of humor) are also the reasons Dyer finds Lawrence funny and charming -- in his own cranky way. I too have no new desire to read Lawrence, but I can't wait to read more of Geoff Dyer.

I am Jim Hawkins

Treasure Island (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

I first read this book nearly twenty years ago (when I was eight, translated in Bengali), and I didn't realise when I had started to see the world more through the eyes of Jim Hawkins than my own, so much so that I never wanted to come out of my day-dreams of adventure. Then I bought the English edition and used to read it as often as possible, each time the last words (Long John Silver's parrot Cap'n Flint shouting "Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!") of the novel making me squirm because it has come to an end. The title of the book is enough to suggest the content matter, and nothing more need be told. Only one suggestion, don't let any boy miss this book, and if you have grown without reading it then get into your shorts of boyhood and read it, you'll grow up again, more likely enjoying the process of growing up more.

This Is More Than A Pitiful 5 Stars! MAXIMUM Talent Tapped!

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

This book by far tops all the other three preceding it. The mixture of a warm, rich text and bold, mental imagery pull you right into the world of Harry Potter. This book has everything, comedic lines, intense mystery, and suspense. Joanne Rowling pulls all of her creative talents together and delivers the goods. One can only hope she can match this book. If your sceptical about reading a so called "children's book" think again, and go pick up a copy, 'cause it'll be years before you get it from the library. The only thing left to say after reading this book is, "Bravo!, Bravo, ENCORE!"

Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

Best read after completing both "Shareholder Value Added" by Rappoport and "Quest for Value" by Stewart, this book does an excellent job of not only patching up conceptual holes the two previous works left with their competing terminology and viewpoint, but as acting as a keystone that combined the two to make a macro picture of valuation more complete. I have not read Damodran (sp?), I am leery after reading that reported typo's make interpretation difficult, however, I feel this book delves much in the way of detail. Textually it is sometimes challenging to follow along, but arguments are supported by ledgers with the changes and suggesstions bolded. The financial valuation is a god send... Looking forward to the excel model, I just wish/hope it had a financial template included...

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Rivals The Hobbit

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

J.K. Rowling has created a magical world with such believable details that the reader is immediately transported. I haven't felt this way about a book since I read The Hobbit as a child. Everything from the character's names to "Quidditch", the game played by Harry at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is perfectly believable in the context of the book. I bought the book as a Christmas gift for my nine year old daughter and read it myself in one sitting. My daugher read it in two days and it is now making its way through our whole extended family and we have friends eagerly awaiting their turn to read it. We couldn't wait for the sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Leaving Home

Rating: 5/5

Leaving Home: Stories - book cover picture

The story was real interesting. It remind me of how alot of children grow up and want to move out of their parents home, make their lives better than what their parents lives were. To read that story made me realize how our parents feel when we want to leave and become adults. When they know were not ready for that big move.
Every story was about leaving home and becoming a better person or going on trips to meet someone.Thats what life is all about, leaving home and going into the real world to meet people and to see what the real world islike when your not under that protection of your parents or guardians.

Dandelion Wine (Grand Master Editions) - book cover picture

Although Bradbury is known mostly as a science fiction writer, this book is not really SF at all. It's pure poetry. The essence of summer poured between two covers - the way that dandelion wine is the essence of summer bottled up for the cold dark times of year when you need it most. Bradbury's prose is so beautiful that I had to stop and read most paragraphs twice so that I could savor every detail. This is a book that oozes warmth and happiness and yes, a little bit of sorrow, but that's what makes it real.

The Dance Of Anger: A Womans Guide To Changing The Patterns Of Intimate Relationships - book cover picture

I've just purchased my second copy of this book because I not only recommend it, I loan it out...but since the book is so good and the material so relavent to so many women's lives, I need this second copy if I ever want to have it for referring to again. I find that you can't help but refer back to many pages, even sections, over and over again because what Ms. Lerner writes resonates so true that you feel as though she has evesdropped on your life and your patterns of behavior regarding anger. Her counsel is not easy to persevere in but if you do, you will find yourself being more at peace with yourself.
