Red Planet Novelization: Excellent!!

Red Planet: A Novel - book cover picture

`Red Planet' is an very well written and entertaining read. I tend to read novelizations before i see the film because often a movie will gloss over, bypass or ignore details that a book will take note of and make the characters and their situations much more interesting. Mr. Telep has done a excellent job with that because he explores the relationships between the astronaunts (the best part of the book) and their reasons for going to Mars, other than the mission, in such a way that only a book can divulge. This is a good old astronaunt ET, no giant ant-like creatures, no Darth Vader - but there is...something up there. Read this book and you will believe you are walking the surface of Mars. If the movie is half as good, and believable, as the book then they have a blockbuster on their hands.

Composing a Life - book cover picture

I can't remember why I investigated, ordered and then read this book other than it was written by Margaret Mead's daughter and I wanted to find out what the woman was like personally. What I found when I read the book was quite different. I felt such affinity with much that was presented about the lives of the women that I recommended the work to a friend. It is interesting that we both highlighted an event in Mary Bateson's life that we both had experienced in similar intensity. Bateson's candid verbalisation of the effect of the experience has helped to heal the wounds in both my friend and myself.

As Good As Sci-Fi Gets

Dune (Dune Chronicles (Econo-Clad Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Dune is a grand tale of the far future, chronicling Paul Atreides' fateful progression from boy to leader. Frank herbert's sweeping saga is closer to Homer and Vergil than to Star Wars. His concepts are brilliantly creative, his setting more real than any painting, his characters subtle. The level of spiritual description and development astounds. Like Aeneas, Paul survives the destruction of his family and home, to grows up among the people of the earth until, like Odysseus, he can finally arise to reclaim what was stolen decades ago. Considered by many to be the best science fiction ever written, Dune is not mere sci-fi but a literary classic which happens to have a sci-fi setting.

Home Again : A Novel - book cover picture

I think this is one of my all time favorite books. The author writes with such feeling and depth that I felt as though I were there and living the characters. The characters were very human and had flaws, but in the end, it gave hope that people really can grow and change. It is a tear jerker, but had a wonderful, wonderful story. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading. I highly recommend it.

The Man in the Brown Suit (Agatha Christie Mysteries Collection (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I think this is one of the BEST work of myatery by Agatha Christie. Not only was the plot intriguing, the murderer (murderess?) was totally unexpected. I mean, in ALL her books, the murderer is unexpected, but I usually guess who it is. (I'm not boasting!)But in this book, I HAD my theories as to who the murderer was, but when I learnt who the real person was.. I was stunned! OK, I think I've said enough. Time for you to read it yourself & find out.

Adventure For The Mind

Book title: Seabiscuit: An American Legend
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Seabiscuit: An American Legend - book cover picture

If a great book means one which moves the reader to tears, to chuckles, to wonder and to thought, then this is the greatest book of all. I have never been so moved by any other author or subject as during each reading of this book. I first bought the audio version which has one fault: it's not unabridged. The reader, Campbell Scott, is superb. I wanted to know ALL the story, so I then bought the hard cover. If they publish an unabridged version read by Scott, I'll also buy that. This adventure in words and feelings is flawless.

A unique approach to planning a wedding

Book title: Sacred Threshold
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Sacred Threshold - book cover picture

After having looked at dozens of books, this one has become one of my best finds. It's been borrowed by my mother and the bride's mother, and it's been asked-for by numerous friends and relatives. The book covers the wedding from the spiritual-side, focusing on the ceremony more than the reception. It's a welcome change from the rest of the "buying guides" and "how-tos" that are more concerned with the party and not the actual wedding. I highly recommend it.

Quilts From The Quiltmaker's Gift - book cover picture

When I heard about this book, I thought the tie-in with the children's book was a cheap marketing gimmick. Was I wrong! This is a wonderful book--beautiful pictures, crystal clear instructions so the beginner can't go wrong, and enough ideas for design variations so that a more experienced quilter who wants to develop her own ideas can do so. The emphasis on sharing the joy of quilting by teaching others and making quilts to give away is a bonus which makes this a unqiue book. A real winner!

Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient - book cover picture

Norman Cousins examines such topics as creativity and humor as being essential to treatment. Important to anyone touched by chronic illness. This was one of the first books my husband Tom and I read when we found out he had Alzheimer's disease. It was one I found particularly helpful in meeting the demands and changes Tom's illness imposed on me. It is a book that talks about outlook and attitudes and taking charge of one's life.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money--That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! - book cover picture

I have read a lot of the other financial books that teach frugality, cut up your credit cards and so on and lived by those principles and was able to amass some savings and investments.I also used to follow the normal way of investing which is to listen to your broker.Recently and against the advice of others, I started to apply the RDPD advice. I use my credit cards, I kept my day job while starting a business in my spare time. I am learning how to invest and am prepared when I go to financial people like brokers. I have also found a ton of tax deductions that I didn't know about before which my tax preparer didn't know because they go to school to fill out tax forms.I highly recommend RD/PD to help you get on the path to financial freedom.As for the 1 star bashers, there must be a reason why they repeatedly pst the same nonsense and unfortunately it has nothing to do with helping you. I wonder what their net worth is?
