Predominant Theme: Women over 30 who have never married

Until... - book cover picture

There were several themes in Mr. McCann's book: women over 30 who have never married, progressive professionals, corporate racism, and true love. The theme I identify with the strongest is the first one because I am 34, have never been married, and have no children. The characters Betty, Jacqui, Zelma, and Felicia are just like me, and they articulate how I feel.Whether it is Betty who feels quote,like the whole world's been invited to a party that you never got an invitation to, unquote (p. 220) or Zelma who does not have quote, someone to call and check in with if you are going to make it home late and all, unquote (p.194), these women feel left out, like me.This book is a must read for single women over 30. It also appeals to career-oriented individuals in corporate America and to those seeking that special someone who can be both a friend and a lover.

So good I can't wait to read the next one!

McClairen's Isle: The Reckless One (McClairens Isle) - book cover picture

The Reckless One swept me up into a world of wicked rogues and regal ladies. Raine is the ultimate scoundrel hero, wounded in his soul yet shrugging off his troubles as he sweeps into Scotland and romances the mysterious lady he finds haunting his castle home. They don't make men like that anymore, and probably it's a good thing because my heart won't take it. Can't wait for the next installment of McClairen's Isle.

Irving touches readers every emotion

Binding: Paperback
A Prayer for Owen Meany - book cover picture

I am a senior in high school, and I just finished reading _A Prayer for Owen Meany_ for an Advanced Contemporary Literature class that I am enrolled in. This book alone made the class worth taking. Irving successfully defines such deep topics as faith, destiny, and loyalty while keeping the reader interested with his amazing stroy-telling abilities and incredible sense of humor. His effective uses of foreshadowing and character development lead me into an ending that left me speechless. If this book left such an impression on a senior in high school who finished this book during prom weekend, think how this book will impact you. Irving wrote a must read with _A Prayer for Owen Meany_!

For What It Is...

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man - book cover picture

For what the book is, or what it set out to be rather, it is a great work. I, personally, was raised a Republican and come from a very right wing family. I think we all draw from both this book and Michael Moore's books what we may. I agree, America is in trouble. What I disagree with are the people judging the books before they read them. Buy them, borrow them from the library (hey, it's free) and then develop your opinions instead of attacking the book prior to reading it, (not that any reviewer here is doing so). I recommend that you read this book and Michael Moore's books whether you reside in the left or the right wing, because they will ultimately give you a better idea of where you stand politically than if you only read the one you thought mostly agreed with, you might even change parties.

A Mother's love and hope for her troubled son


Book title: His Bright Light
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
His Bright Light - book cover picture

Even if you don't have family members with bipolar dynfunction, this book will give you insight to the disease. It's very easy to think of a celebrity idyllically. I am amazed that Danielle Steel could write such beautiful love stories when her own life was full of so much turmoil. This is another of Daniell's love story--but it's a true one--the love a Mother has for her son and the unlimited efforts and extents she will go to to try and save him (in this case, from himself). Danielle did a wonderful job of capturing Nick's "bright light" and sharing it with the world.

Desire of the Everlasting Hills : The World Before and After Jesus - book cover picture

Meticulously documented and lovingly rendered, this third in Thomas Cahill's "Hinges of History" series is excellent! The ancient Mediterranean world of Alexander the Great and Augustus Caeser comes to life vividly under the spell of Cahill's pen. We understand the world that Jesus of Nazereth better because we understand the politics and culture of the period. I was raised on the Christian gospels but never before understood them and their writers as I have come to understand them after reading this book. Jesus, Peter, Mark, Matthew, Luke, John, and Paul became "real" people to me. Even if you are not a Christian or have rejected the doctrine of Jesus, you come away from this book with a new respect for his message and its effect on the ages.

A Western in a category all in its own


Book title: Shane
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Shane - book cover picture

My father named me after the book's main character and perhaps that's what led me to write my own Western novel ("Bounties"). Of course, "Shane" can't be topped and is a unique Western in its own category. While I rely on humor to tell my stories, Jack Schaefer paints a picture of a man trying to escape his violent past and eventually has to accept who he is and that his destiny is something he can't escape. This book is not just a Western but a beautiful tale about growing up, boyhood dreams, and heroes that emerge from wide and unforgiving landscapes. Thanks to Schaefer for giving us a book that continues to inspire so many people.

Teaching Students with Learning Problems (7th Edition) - book cover picture

This book is an excellent resource for all special education teachers. I especially recomment it for new teachers because it basically covers, in depth, the information that a first year teacher needs to organize their classroom, implement programs for facilitating teaching (e.g. peer tutoring,setting up reading and math programs, etc.).
It is a very challenging because of the amount of information covered. It teaches approaches to language arts and math (e.g. a concrete, representational, abstract approach to teaching math). It encourages and discusses ways to make teaching a more hands on approach to learning. I love it!

The Junction Boys : How 10 Days in Hell with Bear Bryant Forged A Champion Team at Texas A&M - book cover picture

What would you do if someone forced you to practice football for hours upon end in the oven heat of Central Texas? I forgot to mention you get no water breaks...and by the way, the Coach at times seems like a lunatic, not caring whether or not his players get hurt or even survive. 35 men survived this barbarian type of football boot camp, their story comes alive in "The Junction Boys." You grow to care, not only about the players, but about the coach, in this case, the legendary Bear Bryant. On the surface, the trip to Junction seems like downright torture. It's what happens after the camp that makes this book so magical. You see players come together as a team, a special bond develops with the coach as they turn from a rag-tag bunch into conference champs all in the manner of two years. This is a must read for sports fans, it gives a special insight into the aura of Bear Bryant and the men who would run through brick walls for him.
