Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code - book cover picture

This is a book where the title explains it all. There is no hype, no esoteric theory, no new age crystals or silver bullet tool being sold by this book. The methods explained in this book are clear, concise and immediately useful if you are a novice or a guru. I cannot even think of another book where that is true. Take your code to the next level and buy this book.
p.s. The hard cover and ribbon bookmark are a very nice and classy touch for a classic book.

Waiting in Vain - book cover picture

Colin, Colin, Colin...Sweetheart. Do you mind if I call you that? You have baked this one to perfection. The richness and thickness and sexiness of your story is reminiscent of authentic southern cooking...the kind that sticks to you and makes you sleep with a smile coyly dancing on your lips. Ian and Sylvia and......FIRE are wonderfully almond spiced and beautifully interwoven. I suddenly feel a certain craving for mango juice....If this is only the beginning, I will indeed stay hungry for more.

The Girl Who Owned A City (Laurel-Leaf Science Fiction) - book cover picture

A true masterpiece of modern novels, this book is a must read by everyone of all ages. O. T. Nelson jumps right into the story, leaving you to discover for yourself what really happened. The conclusion to the story leaves the reader with one word...WOW! Many books and novels of today's world discuss and explore the trials and tribulations of growing up with divorced, widowed, seperated parents. This book creates a world where the children are forced to grow up....without a living soul over the age of 12. Read on, and enjoy....(I also recomend this book for junior highschool teachers to use in class. )

Reads Like a Movie

Book title: Elixir

Elixir - book cover picture

After enjoying 'Gray Matter' by Gary Braver, I bought Elixir from before Christmas and started reading it only getting to the first chapter. After the dust settled from Christmas, New Years and Valentines Day, I finally opened Elixir yesterday (Feb 16) and read 300+ pages. And I finished it the next day. I should say that I am not a fast reader, nor have I ever read 300+ pages in a single sitting (with a few time outs to eat and take care of nature) - I just could not put it down. I wept at the climactic showdown at the end. Very moving. Outstanding! This book read like a movie. I hope it gets made, but can't imagine it will be as good as the book. Thrilling!

The Outsiders - book cover picture

Hey everyone. I first chose out this book because we had to read a "coming of age" novel and write a report on it. So I decided to read this one. I really like to read but I can't read unless I'm really interested in the book, and let me tell you, I was really interested! This book gave me outrageous mood swings of happiness, sadness, enjoyment, sympathy. I swear, there wasn't a second when I wasn't feeling something! If I am only 12, and in grade 7 and I can read it, I'm sure that everyone else can! S.E. Hinton has written a masterpiece and it should be all of our duties to read it! So please, get out there and read this amazing book! If you haven't read it already you don't know what you're missing.

The Maximum Impact with the Minimal Prose

Book title: The Stories of John Cheever
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Stories of John Cheever - book cover picture

The late John Cheever could not only tell a story well. He also could make each word count to ultimately paint a complex portrait of a certain type of person and his life, (less often her life). This was the upperclass, or marginal thereto, person who when in a city was in New York and when in the suburbs went by train to CT. Even more telling though was that Cheever's eye could see in a person's smallest gesture, or his passingest moment, everything you would ever need to know about him. Cheever exposed the underside of what was going on in life for this person. The world might seem sunny and simple when a Cheever story begins but by its end the world is rendered in all its complexity in the sparest of prose. I read Cheever's novels too but it was in his short stories that his genius as a writer shone forth best. Each story in this collection is stunning and well worth owning forever.

One of Roald Dahl's Most Enjoyable Books

Book title: The Witches (Puffin Novels)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Witches (Puffin Novels) - book cover picture

"The Witches" is another "typical" Dahl book, though no two are ever alike. Filled with chase scenes, surprises and magical spells, children will be delighted with this suspenseful, wonderful story. What Dahl understands is that children like to be scared, and he does plenty of scaring in this little book. A great idea for grandparents to read to their grandchildren; the movie is also scary and fun.

I loved it!

Book title: The Wild Hunt
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Wild Hunt - book cover picture

This is a beautifully written, haunting book. The kind that you can't stop reading it when you start, and at the end, you start reading it again because you want to notice all the details you might have missed the first time through. Very original, perhaps a little short. Full of quiet wisdom and harsh conflict. It keeps you in suspense from the first chapter to the very end. And the ending is one of those that keeps you wondering about what happens after that, and leaves lots of room for imagination.

Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold - book cover picture

For all C.S.Lewis fans this book is a 'must-read'. The story really draws you in and you feel you are really living in the harsh olden-times in which this book is set. The book finishes in typical C.S.Lewis fashion with a 'happy-ever-after' Christian theme. There is a strong Christian thread in the 2nd-half of the book, but it is more like an historical myth in the first half. There is a magic and a wonder about the story which shows Lewis at his best. The heroine of the book is made to see her motives for what they really were and herself as she really is, but everything works out well at the very end!

The Mermaid Chair: A Novel - book cover picture

Sue Monk Kidd has done it again. This is a beautifully crafted story about love, how it can inspire us, give us wings, and when it becomes muddled, actually suffocate us. SMK had given us more than one protagonist is this novel, and together they help us to realize we need each other, along with our spirituality to grow and survive.

Thank you Sue, for this wonderful gift, and sharing your talent with us once again!
