Barry Sadler's Casca: The Liberator (Barry Sadler's Casca) - book cover picture

I have heard of the Casca series, but this was my first one. Eager and anxious to find some of the older books. I am aware this is a different author from the original, but I find the character of Casca fascinating. The whole time I was reading "The Liberator" I imagined myself as Casca. Quite a ride. Also, from what I know, Paul Dengelegi is a doctor with quite an interesting past, which could explain some of his references and knowledge of historical and technical detail. I can definitely recomend this book to anyone who is intersted in action, adventure, history etc. Look forward to more. BarrySadler.com for anyone interested in more Casca.

Looted: The Philippines After the Bases - book cover picture

This is a must read for anyone who would like a deeper understanding of the Philippines. In my 8 years in Manila, I had the opportunity to travel extensively and frequently throughout the island nation. While I appreciate the wonders and potentials of the country I have seen its darker perimeters in many forms. Don Kirk has done a masterful job of research and reporting. There are of course two sides to everything and, when it involves Asia, it is difficult for the casual or transient observer to see beyond what they believe they understand. Author/Correspondent Don Kirk is clearly not a casual transient observer.

The most perverted masterpiece ever read!


Book title: Confederacy of Dunces
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Confederacy of Dunces - book cover picture

John Kennedy Toole has written the funniest book I?ve ever read, read and read again.

My first contact with it, back in 1989, had an enormous effect on my vocabulary. After reading it I started to, influenced by the main character Ignatius, use cool expression like "You perverted mongoloid" and "I?ll whip you ?till you drop". Guess if some people were shocked...

"A Confederacy of Dunces" is a must read for all openminded people

Do Science for Religious Reasons? Absolutely!


Book title: Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist - book cover picture

This book is an eye-opener for both true-believing religious folk who mistrust science and hard-nosed materialists who consider theological ways of thinking to have been overthrown by science. For those who already knew better, this book falls a bit short of advancing recent dialogs between religion and science. Subjective religious experiences are uncritically reported as "God's" influence with little or no reflection on the psychological nature of their origin. Further, both past "mistakes" and current dogmatic assertions of the Catholic Chursh are discussed without persuading this reader that the author has been as thoroughly honest in his pursuit of "Truth" as is claimed. But all in all, this is an enjoyable book with an entertaining exposition of meteorite hunting that constitutes an honest-to-God adventure. Well worth reading!

Fascinating portrait of a courageous english explorer

Binding: Hardcover
Passionate Nomad: The Life of Freya Stark - book cover picture

Jane Geniesse has captured Freya Stark, an English original, with flair and insight. Her biography is a colorful and thoughtful portrait of an intelligent, determined and sometimes infuriating woman who, under the most difficult circumstances, chose to explore -often alone- remote and mysterious areas of the Arab world largely unknown to the West. It is the fascinating story of a lonely lady driven to leave behind very real personal problems by traveling through some of the most dangerous parts of the world and returning to write several award- winning accounts of her adventures. A wonderful book!

I was inside Gilly for the book.


Book title: The Great Gilly Hopkins
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Great Gilly Hopkins - book cover picture

Thourgh out the book, I felt like I was inside Gilly thinking and being her. It teaches us that life can't go as smooth as we imagine it will. The idea is fresh and arousing. The reader can't stop at the next chapter. In the end of the book you feel you want to make the book go on and on. Some other great books by Katherine Paterson are "Jacob, Have I Loved" and "Bridge to Terabithia".

The Best Of Donaldson


Book title: Mirror of Her Dreams (Mordant's Need)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Mirror of Her Dreams (Mordant's Need) - book cover picture

Mirror Of Her Dreams is superb fantasy. None of the usual fare that makes fantasy so weak when not in the hands of Tolkien (monsters, wizards, fairies, etc.). This is an intricate, well thought out and executed piece of work. The characters are wonderful, the world fascinating and believable, and the story first rate in every regard. `Page Turner' is a phrase thrown around WAY too often but hey, this one fits the bill. An excellent read to enjoy more than once.

Political and military history at its best

Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East - book cover picture

I was 40 years old at the time of the Six-day war and in IDF uniform. On the Saturday after the war I was wondering under what circumstances Israel (my cherished home since 1940) will get rid of the Sinai, the "triangle" (Judea and Samaria) and the Golan. So, I admit being a dove.
With infinite patience, after hundreds of hours of research, Oren has put togethere the best overall political history of the period, the detailed events of the war and its terrible aftermath. The book is coolheaded, fair, comprehensive and stands out as a gem in its genre. The first 170 pages deal with the background, about 100 with the events of six days and the rest, about 30, are an excellent epilogue. Very highly recommended to friend and foe alike.

If you haven't read Ms Brown yet, you haven't lived!


Book title: Another Dawn
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Another Dawn - book cover picture

By God!!! I never thought I could become so absorbed in any author's works like this. Slow Heat in Heaven was definitely a keeper, but I read Sunset Embrace and continued with the sequel Another Dawn immediately and wasn't dissappointed. The continuity of the two novels is perfect. One can't help but be swept up in the Coleman's and the Langston's lives. The romance is all-consuming and energizing. You can't put these books down!!

When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies : Freeing Yourself from Food and Weight Obsession - book cover picture

This book will change your way of thinking about yourself and about your role in society. It explains in detail the way women associate many of their problems with food. It encourages you to change and to love yourself unconditionally, and to learn to be a gentle caretaker to yourself. It really is a rewarding experience to read and live by the philosophies explained. Living without unhealthy body obsessions, but instead with love, will lead you to a much happier existence. I encourage you to read this, even if you don't think you have an eating problem. The book really applies to all women. Learn to love yourself, and stop hating your body! I highly reccommend this, obviously...:)
