A Grief Observed - book cover picture

As the fine line between life and death causes mortal man to pursue God, so had Lewis when his wife died. He knew God, but need to know God through this, and to believe God had not lost the love for which He sent Christ. Did God still exist enough to make living bearable without Joy, his wife?This book is excellent for any Christian, whether Catholic or Protestant (or any other variation) going through a state of loss. After a hard breakup, this book helped pull me out of the sucking mire of despair, bringing me toward hope.Buy the inexpensive copy, because the pages will be dogeared and well-read, and you'll likely find so healing, you'll buy copies for friends.

Keyes' best!

Book title: Last Chance Saloon
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Last Chance Saloon - book cover picture

I love this book, and don't think that it is typical chick lit. It is a little deeper than just single girls out trying to get themselves out of debt, lose weight or trap a man. In fact, Katherine hates men, Tara won't leave the one she's got (even though she should) and Fintan loves the one he's with.
The characters were well developed, they wittily talk and spar like only best friends can. And they change as people by the end of the book. Fintan becomes sick and calls in favors from Tara and Katherine, "challenges" he calls them. Ones that will change their lives...for the better.
A great book about friendship. Once you have read this one, read Keyes' other books, specifically the three that each deal with one of the four Walsh sisters. Claire in "Watermelon" is my other favorite.

The Krytos Trap (Star Wars: X-Wing Series, Book 3) - book cover picture

This being the third book in the x wings series you may think it will begin to lose some steam but, let me tell you with great joy, it does not. The plot gets deeper into the goings on of the most elite squadron in the galaxy and the action hardly wavers. Stackpole really knows how to give the reader that star wars atmosphere and this book is no exception. You get to know the already familiar characters even better while even meeting a few new ones. I can not say enough for how well these characters are portrayed. Good guys and bad alike are very interesting, a reason this series has gained so much popularity. Overall, if you enjoyed the first two in the series this one is even better and it looks like the books to follow will be equally entertaining.

Titanic Sails Into History Again

James Cameron's Titanic - book cover picture

This book documenting the making of James Cameron's Titanic is one of the best I've ever seen on the seemingly magic craft of movie making. I enjoyed this book particularly for its behind-the-scene photographs and its narrative, which explains the technology they used in terms a layman can understand. Rather than betray the illusion, it supports it in a way that makes you appreciate the film so much more. A must for film afficianados and Titanic buffs alike.

American Guitars: An Illustrated History - book cover picture

This book was given to me as a gift. I have referred to it often to answer questions for others, and just to learn about various guitars that I've had interest in. It's like taking a trip to a great guitar store to look at a huge stock of new and vintage guitars. If only I could reach into the pages and actually play each guitar...I would be in heaven.Indispensible tool for all guitar collectors or hobbyists.

The Hours : A Novel - book cover picture

This book was oddly compelling and one of the best books I've read in a long time. Not much happens, yet every time I put the book down, I couldn't wait to pick it back up again. Contrary to other reviews here, I did not find the writing pretentious. I thought the writing was direct as much as it was poetic, precise and uncomplicated. The ideas are deeply layered, the overall effect absorbing. If you haven't read Mrs. Dalloway, I recommend doing so (or even watching the movie) before you read The Hours. The experience will be much richer.

For Women Who Desperately Need ANY KIND of Man

Book title: Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives - book cover picture

This book is written for women who need a shove or a kick in the a**. The book basically says, in my opinion: "What are you doing to yourself" -- and speaks to the woman who so desperately needs any kind of man (even if he's abusive) because she's lonely or filling a void in her lifespace with a body, and is completely ignorant in seeing the consequences of her action, in terms of hurting herself and maybe her children. This book is written for women who have no control over their lives and most especially themselves. Dr. Laura is right on. Her book will help those women to make healthy decisions.Yeah, this book is for those self-deprecating women.

Six Women's Slave Narratives (Schomburg Library of Nineteenth Century Black Women Writers) - book cover picture

Six Women's Slave Narritives is an absolute must for any historian or seeker of truth. You will cry and shivers will run down your spine as you feel the past rush through you with every turn of the page. This is a compilation of 19th century Black women writers in different situations. Interestingly, the typeface changes slightly throughout the book, imitating the possibility of time travel. Some of the women are educated, and some are simply expressive. The editors notes help clarify confusing issues and questions. If you are studying history, women, black history or slavery, you will be engrossed by this heartrenching and soul-moving collection of personal exposure. Be ready to cry, wince, and change your outlook on life.

Model Patient: My Life As an Incurable Wise-Ass - book cover picture

So many people buckle much more when faced with much less! I have been in love with this woman since I was like 15 years old, I have to admit, but I read the book in two days...well I am still in love with her. I wouldn't care if she had scariodosis, MLS, non-hodgikns lymphoma, leprosy and shingles all at the same time! If you're sick and you want to continue to live a happy, fufilling life, I think you could benefit both from Karen's practical advice (dealing with doctors, side-effects of medication) and her emotional approach to being seriously ill. I love the way she discussess support groups, herbal medicine and sentimentality in general. Duff rocks. I do not understand criticism of this book.
