Ender's Shadow (Ender) - book cover picture

I thought this book totally lived up to all expectations and exceeded them. Orson Scott Card never fails to impress me. Even his less heard of books such as "Lovelock" were favorites of mine. I can very easily relate to Bean in this book. I think he represents characteristics in many of us, only exaggerated because of exaggerated circumstances and environments. OSC is the king of the thinking man's sci-fi.

Tao of Pooh and Te of Piglet Boxed Set - book cover picture

I was recently introduced to taoism through the music of John Cage. The book is written as if for a child, but the terminology and philosophy put forth is far to introspective and mature for young children to handle. It is a gentle lesson on life and priority management. The author explains taoist beliefs though a conversation with Pooh and Piglet and the rest of them, as well as through short stories about their adventures. The book comes across astonishingly light for such seemingly serious subject matter. Large text and simple illustrations only add to the book's levity, but at the end, you're left feeling peaceful and refreshed. "The Tao of Pooh" is ripe for repeat readings, whenever you feel like you need to relax. While Eeeore frets...and Piglet hesitates...and Rabbit calculates...and owl pontificates...Pooh just is.

House of Leaves : A Novel - book cover picture

It's one of the most unique works of literature I've ever read - it's a challenging, at times difficult read, and parts of it work better than others, but it gets under the skin more than any book that I've ever read. I turned several friends on to it and they experienced the same thing. Some people (like me) think it's a masterwork, others think it's an over-the-top piece of self-indulgence writing. Just an amazing novel.

The Last Day - book cover picture

If ever there was a book to redeem my hopes for contemporary novelists, this is it. Jeza, the beautiful, enigmatic young woman who takes the world by storm as a new messiah is as original and powerful a leading character as has come along in decades. To say that she presents a worthy successor to the most memorable of biblical figures is quite a statement, but the author pulls it off with great flair. Although Catholic, I was not put off by the verdicts Jeza renders against some of the organized religions, particularly Catholicism. I am open minded and honest enough to admit that her arguments ring true (can I deny that my religion has enormous wealth or has a legacy of supressing women--having burned thousands at the stake as witches?). This book is incredibly well researched and rich with detail as few suspense novels are. If you like to have the wits scared out of you by a witty story, you'll love the spine-chilling effects of this masterful thriller. A must read.

Over the years I have been reading Larry's books. I have been hooked from his first book. This book like his others start out with the basics and then jumps into the advanced stuff. It also contains a lot of real world examples that someone could use for thier site right now. As always I truely recommend this book to people that are beginners thru advanced. I have always used his books as reference guides as well. This is a must buy and is worth every cent.

James Cameron's Titanic - book cover picture

I've seen the film, like, a million times, each time I cried my eyes out. The attention to detail on the ship and costumes was excellent and it seems that Leo & Kate were made for the parts of Jack & Rose. The acting was also really good and you got wrapped into the film, it was almost as if you were experinceing it. When i found out how it was made, i was amazed. It's done so cleverly. Finally, Leo, Kate,all the Actors, and everyone invovled are BRILL and TITANIC is the greatest film ever!!!! Love Rhi

I thought this book was a great book. Once I started reading it, I always wanted to keep reading. I never really wanted to put it down. It was a story about a couple of teenage girls that tricked their parents into beleiving that they were each at one another's house. During this time they went on a date with a two guys. They ended up getting in a wreck, killing one, injuring one, and hospitalizing the two teenagers. One was more severe than the other. In the end she comes out of the coma, and things start to get bettere for the family.

If you thought Eye of the World was good, you won't be able to put this one down. This book picks up where the surprisingly slow EotW leaves off. Making all the main characters face some of their greatest fears. The trollocs still bug me though, with their unrelenting creatvielessness. Ooh! Let's combine a troll and an orc and put an eagle's beak and goat hooves on him! RJ, you screwed up with that little creation, but I still love ya'. If you can deal with that you can survive the book!

Perloo the Magnificent

Perloo The Bold - book cover picture

Perloo the Bold is a magnificent story for all kinds of people. Perloo is a Montmer who likes to read an just lay around. Jolaine was the old Granter and Lucabara was her first assistant. Joliane recommends that Perloo become the Granter when she dies because Perloo is an expert in Montmer history, even though her son, Berwig, is supposed to become the next Granter. Berwig's friend, Senyous, helps him plot against Perloo. Joliane's proclamation gets ripped in half and they change the proclamation in favor of Berwig. Perloo makes great decisions throughout the story.I recommend this book for 5th and 6th graders. Parents should read the book too because there are great adventures on every page. So please read this magnificent book!

MacCannell, erudite and angry, chronicles postmodern decay

Empty Meeting Grounds: The Tourist Papers - book cover picture

Dean McCannell, an angry academic, takes on the pervasive rot around us in a fascinating collection of essays. The appropriation and conversion of cultural and material goods into commodities is a process that MacCannell calls by its correct name--cannibalism. The historically recent assimilation of all available cultural and material goods into a monolithic system has created a monstrous world order which provides no alternatives to itself.
These passionate essays reward many readings. I do not feel I exaggerate when I call this a great and indispensible book.
