Rider at the Gate - book cover picture

I have been a reader of Fantasy/Sci Fi for a very long time and I was a bit skeptical to start something that was an old game with the telepathy and other animals.

This novel shocked me and swept me off my feet. Not only is it more realistic form of telepathy (the animals are not the heroes and Cherryh does not pretend to underline that) but the world explodes in your eyes, ears, your nose and your well being.

Cherryh's writing is unmatched as far as her style. She really plays with the words and phrases in such a way that she makes you feel everything around you.

In this book you get Cherryh's writing, great ecology, genuine charactes,impeccable plot, and a heck of a mystery with a twist.

Great book for any serious Bible student!

The Text of the New Testament: Its Transmission, Corruption, and Restoration - book cover picture

If you're a serious Bible student, this is a must have book! Metzger & Kurt Aland are the two best greek scholars and textual critics of our time. If you are curious about those little footnotes at the bottom of your Bible that read "some ancient mss have 'in the prophets'" etc. -- look no further, this is the book for you.I would also recommend Kurt Aland's "Text of the New Testament". These two books are wonderfull together, I constantly use them as references.This book is worth it's weight in gold!! Buy it! You won't be disappointed.

similar to the movie... but a lot more twisted

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

I was already a major addict to the movie, but I finally got to read the book. It had many similarities to the movie, though the movie added some parts which were absent in the book, and the book had a few parts that were absent in the movie. The book, Fight Club, was a very easy read for me (I read it in one night), and it actually made the movie make some more sense, though I quote it like one quotes the Bible, and the descriptions of many of the evnts were explained a lot more graphically than they were portrayed in the movie, and of course, the ending to the book was a surprise, to say the least, and I recommend this book just as much as I do the movie. Chuck Palahniuk is a great author, and Fight Club is one of the most important books to be released in the last decade. Its views of corporate society, and individualism are absolutely amazing and philosophical, almost the way Nietzsche's philosophy is.

More fun and mystery with Savvy Skye

Book title: News from the Edge : Insanity, Illinois
Rating: 5/5

News from the Edge : Insanity, Illinois - book cover picture

Like the first book in the series, this is a mystery book with only a touch of science fiction. In fact, there's so little sci fi in this one that it makes me wonder why anyone would put it on the sci fi shelves. It really doesn't matter. What matters is -- Savvy's back! This time Savvy is out to figure out what's driving a whole town mad. The plot involves poison apples, genetic engineering, the CDC, and a cute coworker with more looks than brains. Savvy continues her wry observations about herself and others. It's funny, breezy, and interesting. A great cosy.

Only the Ball Was White: A History of Legendary Black Players and All-Black Professional Teams - book cover picture

This book provides an entertaining look at the Negro Leagues and the years prior, when blacks were banned by the "Gentlemen's Aggreement" from participating in the national past time. Although not a comprehensive study, it does provide the reader with a glimpse of what the Negro Leagues were like. One is left with a whole series of "What might have been?" to ponder. Overall, a great book and well worth the price.

An excellent summary of the Canon

Book title: Stories from Shakespeare
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Stories from Shakespeare - book cover picture

Margaret Chute's Stories of Shakespeare uses an novel technique. She writes treatments for 36 of the plays (those in the First Folio), a present tense chronology of the plot in simple, eloquent language. This book is useful for actors, students or the casual fan. The book also appreciates the beauty of Shakespeare's language by offering selected excerpts. Further, it recognises the humor, the history and the tragedy of the story and gives concise summaries so the reader can always follow the action. This is an excellent book.

Prom Date - book cover picture

Danielle 13-Prom Date is the best book I have ever read! It's about a person who is killing and/or hurting people just for a date to the prom! It's a page turner! My personal favorite character is Mitch. He was brave and did everything in his power to protect his girlfriend from death. My favorite part of the book was when I found out who the killer was. I was shocked! If you like murder mysterys and page turning adventures, I recomend this book.

California water wars await you...

Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water - book cover picture

For an interesting perspective on the Californian water wars, this is the book for you. The author has done some excellent research here - he takes a historical approach, entering the minds of the key players that shaped California into the State it is today. The Teton Dam episode almost brought me to tears, from the detailed human trauma descriptions to the geologic explanation - it's all here - he really should write an update though - new information is being discovered everyday.
