Peter's Quest

Whistle for Willie (Picture Puffin) - book cover picture

I grew up in the 60's and fondly remember the school librarian reading Ezra Jack Keats "The Snowy Day" to us as snow fell outside. We were glued to every page and every word. Keats' books stir the imagination. "Whistle for Willie" is another timeless classic from the award winning author. My 3-year-old son could not get enough of this book from the time he was old enough to pull it from the bookcase. The pictures are fun and imaginative, and the text puts you right in Peter's meandering, carefree world. Almost every boy wishes for a dog like Willie, and can relate to Peter's quest..."Oh, how Peter wished he could whistle..."!

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

Our book club recently read three great, great books, one of which was SHE'S COME UNDONE. The other two were LIFE OF PI and Jackson McCrae's CHILDREN'S CORNER. I was so impressed with Oprah's other recommendations; I had to try this one, despite the cover. It was definitely worth it. Wally Lamb writes a humorous, poignant story, but what I appreciated the most was that he never cut his heroine any slack. He never cheated the story on her behalf. When she was good, she was realistically good, and when she was bad, she was just as real, at times horrid. I must admit I really hated her at one point, when she did something I could not excuse, whatever her reasons. But I never stopped loving her, or rooting for her; I even catch myself wondering how she's doing now. The book does more than tug at your heartstrings, though. Lamb has crafted a artful work that challenges as it entertains.

A confirmation of many haunting ideas and questions

Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit - book cover picture

I found this book an easy and enjoyable read. While not agreeing 100% with all of the ideas put forth, I found the organization of thoughts on how we came to be here, now, very compelling. The seemingly slow witted protagist is sometimes irksome but necessary to play off of the teacher, giving Ishmael the opportunity to explain his reasoning. I believe persons with social conscious and ecological awareness will embrace this book; ego-centrists and the 'me-generation' should look elsewhere for their entertainment and enlightenment

The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials S.) - book cover picture

Listen, to anyone who wants to think that this book is about the devil, go ahead. But, to everyone else, this is a WONDERFUL book. Before i read any of the negative comments, I would have never geussed that this book was ment to influence me to worship the devil! It is a great book. Please dont ruin this book for everyone whho likes it by banning it or something. This book has a conflict of good vs. evil, like most books do. How is it different? There is nothing bad about these books

Gave form to feelings I was unable to express.


Book title: A Grief Observed
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Grief Observed - book cover picture

Most of us know the story of C.S. Lewis and Helen Joy Gresham through the movies "Shadowlands". This little volume with a forward written by Douglas H. Gresham, is the most poignant expressive, deeply personal accounts of what it means to grieve over someone you love, that I have ever encountered. He gave form to feelings I was unable to express and provided the words that will remain in my heart as the expression of loss I feel, as I faced the final chapter with my husband Tom. Tom died of Alzheimer's disease in his home as he wished. It is rare that a volume such as this one enters one's life.

An amazing read

Vineland (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

This has become one of my favorite books. Time and time again Im able to go back and re-read a passage and extract something new from it, whether in context of the book itself or current events today. A mesemerizing tale of good and evil, freedom and captivity, innocence and experience. Taking you all over the map of the west coast, and several decades to boot, it has an ethereal quality which masks the quick gut-shots it delivers like a one-two punch. Scenes of dark passage followed by moments of startling clarity and epiphany, no easy answers for anyone but a long winding trail that is still followed to this very day. Tracing the route our country has taken in the last forty years with anecdotal excursions on the side, Vineland holds portent for the years to come.Read this book.

I loved this book, I just wish there was an epilogue...


Book title: Daniel's Gift
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Daniel's Gift - book cover picture

"Daniel's Gift" is a very unique read that will surely tug at anyone's heartstrings and there is enough romance and plot twists to keep the readers interested. As a result, I couldn't put the book down even if I wanted to, which I most certainly did not. The only thing that it was lacking was an epilogue. I would have loved to see Danny and his two parents a year later from when Danny wakes up from his hospital bed. It would have been nice to see them as a whole and complete family. Other than that, "Daniel's Gift" was perfect.

Rules of Surrender (Governess Brides) - book cover picture

I've read all the books in this series; they are all good, but this is the best. Charlotte is wonderful, and Wynter in fantastic. Laughter, tears, smiles and a happy ending. The author's description of Wynter at times was so good, you could almost feel him standing next to you. Charlotte's character was true throughout. She knew what she wanted and wasn't going to settle for less. This in on my top 10 list. Get it.

The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty - book cover picture

this book was recommended to me by a high school teacher who knew that i was interested in irish authors and wanting to explore beyond mccourt,doyle, and oconnor...the writing is totally luminous, lyrical, and totaly like homer...i also likened it to les murray's book called fredy neptune which also involved a world traveler that was like eneas, an innocent. i particularly loved the manner in which eneas was drawn repeatedly to his homeland, hoping that the situation had finally resolved itself...finding that it hadn't, had the courage or whatever to get on with his life...fabulous read.

An absolute must for fiberglass boat restoration.


Book title: Runabout Renovation: How to Find and Fix Up an Old Fiberglass Speedboat
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Runabout Renovation: How to Find and Fix Up an Old Fiberglass Speedboat - book cover picture

This book is the ultimate source of information for the do-it-yourself fiberglass boat restorer. The time, money and effort saved by following Jim Anderson's advice makes this an absolute bargain. By using this as a guide for my own restoration project, I now have a boat that is unique in appearance (1964 Glastron Starflite Deville) yet it is stronger in construction than it was new. But the best part is that I was able to do it all for less than $1,000...a fraction of the cost of a new boat! This $16.95 investment is a no-brainer.
