Catfish and Mandala : A Two-Wheeled Voyage through the Landscape and Memory of Vietnam - book cover picture

For anyone interested in travel, self-discovery, Vietnam and just darn good story-telling, this is a phenominal book. What makes it all the more remarkable is that this work was written by a young, first-time author who was unafraid to share with readers the truth--no matter how ugly or embarrassing--of his life and the fascinating situations he has found himself in. I can't wait for Pham's next book.

Alicia:My Story was a very wonderful book. I've never really read anything about the Holocaust and was very excited when my teacher placed this book in front of me. The further I got into the book, the more interested I was. The young survivor had so much courage to live through the Holocaust as well as the loss of her family and friends. We can all learn a lesson about this book. A lesson in love, a lesson on survival, but most of all, a lesson of hope.

Ender's Game (Ender Quartet) - book cover picture

This is the book that you can't forget; it has been close to 3 years since I read it and I can still remember the book like I'm still reading it. You know you have read a good book when the book makes you want more and more, Ender's Game did that and more. I can't say enough, the whole book made me feel like I was there, training along side with Ender, being a member of The Dragons, and all of the other events that made this book the best I have ever read. The scale says ten is best, but no, I give it an 11, and I might even be under grading it. OSC really did a number for this book.

Great math companion for the physical chemistry student

Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

As a graduate student in the pharmaceutical sciences, I found this book to be a comprehensive and easy-to-use study companion. It reviews fundamental mathematical concepts and relationships (i.e. integration and differential calculus, vectors etc.) along with applied examples encountered in physical chemistry. The book is very useful if the student pursues development of mathematical models for his/her research.A.Higuera, Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy

Into the Wilderness - book cover picture

This book was hard to put down even after a second read. There are too few novels set in this time period. Ms. Donati really found a way to make the post-revolutionary period interesting, captivating, and beautiful. Her characters are well-rounded and real.The author herself writes originally, which is a treat these days with all the "formula" novels on the bookstore shelvesThis is one to always have on your bookshelf, and to treasure.

The Virtuoso - book cover picture

What a joy to read literature by an author who can manipulate and craft language to cast a totally enthralling spell over the reader and take one back to another era and place!I was pulled into the love story of the aristocratic Carlotta and the castrato virtuoso singer,Gasparo from the first pages.Margriet de Moor has done her homework on 18th century Naples.One can almost taste,feel,and breathe the atmosphere and her description of an opera performance at the San Carlo Opera house is phenominal.A little knowledge of 18th century Neapolitan opera doesn't hurt but is not necessary to enjoy this rich elegant novel.All in all Ms. de Moor has scored a bullseye.Brava! Brava!

"Dancing Barefoot" is a short but sweet read

Book title: Dancing Barefoot

Dancing Barefoot - book cover picture

I still remember Wil Wheaton from his days on Star Trek: The Next Generation (something I'm sure he's only heard a zillion times). You hear such horror stories about child stars who grew up in the spotlight and how it ruined their lives. Wil's book, Dancing Barefoot, is not only a glimpse into some of the turmoils that he's gone through, but also an uplifting book in that we see how he came out on the other side, healthy, happy, and a much better person for it. His writing is engaging, his sense of humor is sharp, and his honesty about himself and the personal growth he's gone through is refreshing.As a precursor to the upcoming book, Just A Geek (from which the five stories in Dancing Barefoot were cut from due to length), reading this book has left me more anxious to read the next all the more.- The WheelMan

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

Frank Herbert's Dune Chronicles are a must-have 6 editions for any science fiction/fantasy fan. I just re-read Dune for about the 4th time, and plan on going through each of the following editions again. I'm a fan of sci-fi works that are very rich in plot, character population and total immersion into alternate worlds. Dune does it for me in so many ways. But very basically it puts me into the universe of Dune so deeply that I can see it in my mind, I can live it. It is visceral in nature. Not many books, sci-fi or otherwise, can do that to me. I think that Herbert's mastery in creating this alternate place so imaginatively, with so many layers and history and visualization and mythology and religion and philosophy and psychology, so convincingly is key to the popularity of Dune. And come on, who can resist the desert dwellers riding the wild worms? Like, totally rad! I also discovered just yesterday that there will be a Dune miniseries on the Sci-fi Channel in December. Can't wait!

The Abkhazians : A Handbook (Peoples of the Caucasus Handbooks) - book cover picture

Dear all,I've not read the book yet.But, I'll obtain and read it shortly.I've read the reviews but I thought that the Georgian friends've replied anxiously.What's the problem about this if the book contains the false details and chauvinizm.By the way, I think claims were so simply.Please be honest and let the readers make a decision.But Please kindly be informed that The Abkhazians aren't migrated from The Volga region etc.Abkhazians are one of the most registreted Caucasian People since the ancient times,from the golden post myths. If the Abkhazians were Georgian Why the Georgians never understand the Abkhazian Language? Just think and decide the truth. Keep the happiness on your soul.

When the Road Ends - book cover picture

This is a great story about a 12 year old girl , Mary Jack , and how she copes with trying to live in a cabin by the river with 14 year old rebellious Adam , "Jane" a young girl who doesn't talk , and "Aunt Cecile" a middle aged lady recovering from a head injury in a car accident which left her husband dead. This is a very good story accept I would like it more if Adam and Mary Jack fall in love and end up getting married when they are older and they take "Jane" as their daughter.
