Angela's Ashes: A Memoir of a Childhood - book cover picture

I thought Angela's Ashes was so moving, I cried through most of the book. I also laughted at Frank McCourt's sense of humor, even with the sad childhood he grew up in. Frank McCourt grew up with so much responsiblity as a small boy, he was a strong and compassionate child. It was unbelievable what he and his younger brothers had to deal with, and they survived it somehow. I was born and raised in the 1950's here in the US, the third oldest child, of a poor Irish Catholic family. We did not have a lot, but we never went to bed hungry. Reading his book helped me understand what dirt poor really meant. I thank God, my mother, and father for what we really did have. Reading Angela's Ashes has change my whole out look on life, I thank Frank McCourt for this special gift he has shared with all of us.

The Egg and I - book cover picture

Betty MacDonald tells her story of living on a chicken farm in the remote back hills of the Olympic mountains, warmly and humorously. She has a wonderfully poetic way of describing everything from the green, lush vegetation of the state of Washington to a simple cup of hot coffee with thick, fresh cream. It is a delightful book which will likely urge its readers to seek out her other books about life before and after the chicken farm!

I am an ardent fan of Victoria Holt. I have been reading her books eversince i can remember. She never fails to amaze me. I recently read this book (after a long gap of no victoria holt) and i loved it. The character of Carmel March is strong. The suspense is good cuz u keep wondering and thinking who-done-it? So according to me its a Must read. Other books of Victoria Holt, that i read long time ago but i still remember as great are 'Mistress of Mellyn'; 'Legend of the Seventh Virgin';'The Shivering Sands' and many others.

To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Babylon 5, Book 9) - book cover picture

Did you ever wonder what happened to Commander Jeffery Sinclair and his fianc? Catherine Sakai after Sinclair left the TV series at the end of first season, and before he returned in 3rd season?This book, which is fully endorsed by J Michael Straczynski, (he says you should consider this a missing episode) fills in those blanks. We see how Sinclair moves from being an unwanted (by Earth) Ambassador to Minbar to becoming a figure of prophesy and head of the Rangers on Minbar and how Catherine becomes the lynchpin for many later actions and why Marcus Cole joined the rangers.Enjoyable and well written this book is an essential read for any fan of the series who is curious about the story of Sinclair and his links to Valen. That it has been re-printed in time to be read in conjunction with the B5 DVD's is fortunate for us who missed it the first time round.

The best book Stephen King has ever written!

The Green Mile: The Complete Six Part Novel - book cover picture

I read this book about a year ago and the story has never really left me. I have to say I have never gotten emotional over a book before but this one touched me. It is truly unforgettable. It was the best book I've read so far and I have read many. It might not be a favorite for some SK readers but the characters, the story and the depth of the novel makes a must read for anyone. Phenomenal novel. It deserves more than five stars.

excellent explanation of the process of justice

The Nature of the Judicial Process (The Storrs Lectures Series) - book cover picture

The judicial process is often a maddeningly confusing one. Cardozo, one of the most well known and respected jurists in the history of American law, aims to give a relatively straightforward account of the judicial process.The book is a good introduction to law and its processes. It certainly is not an authoritative text, as certain of his discussions seem to be out of date. However, given the authority accorded Cardozo in the legal world one can hardly go wrong starting out with this book.

Fascinating look at Jewish life

Binding: Hardcover
The Ladies Auxiliary: A Novel - book cover picture

I fiund it difficult to give this book a star rating as I would have preferred to give it 4 1/2 stars,rather than 5. A convert to Judaism,Batsheva,a young widow and mother of a small daughter, arrives in a very tightly knit community in Memphis Tennessee. Her more liberal outlook and her growing closeness to their daughters makes waves and causes unease among the older women in the group.This is virtually all that this book is about!I found the descriptions of the way of life practised by these Orthodox Jews to be fascinating,particularly the cleanliness rituals and the formalised way of food preparation but it all seemed to fizzle out in the latter half of the book.I've given it a 5 as I continued to pick it up and read with interest until the end.

A Walk in the Woods - book cover picture

I've never hiked...am not about to start. I have no idea what drew me to this book. Guess I expected an adventure type story like The Perfect Storm..without water. But I loved this book. I loved Bryson's wit and sarcasm...and I love Katz!!! This story is more about relationships and people than I think Bryson realizes. I don't think there is a whole lot of info for the expert hikers here....but if you appreciate a real wise ass when you read one...you'll love this book.

Utterly amazing...

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Book of Secrets - book cover picture

Don't listen to the reviews, pick it up for yourself. Even if you end up hating it, you owe it to yourself to at least check it out. This is a book that changes lives, period. But it's too powerful to be for everyone. It's one of those books that you might receive or buy, let it sit around for months or years w/out even looking at it, and one day pick it up and finally realize how amazing it truly is. Most books philosophize and intellectualize about spirituality; this book (and Tantra as a whole) shows you HOW to get there. Moreover, this book is filled with amazing psychological insight. Even one who isn't necessarily interested in the spiritual aspect should value it just for the incredible insight into human nature and it's habits, compulsions, and tendencies.
