Seth captures the music in a character's fugue states


Book title: An Equal Music
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
An Equal Music - book cover picture

This wonderful book about musicians, obsessions and sacrifice is especially compelling because the rhythms of the prose are evocative of music. One character's mental"fugue" states are intricately woven and staccato, just as in a musical fugue. Other passages are slower, more undulating, as if line notes have given the direction "lento". To read this book is to enjoy, in the rhythm and tone of the words, music-- not in the sense of seeing notes and bars on a page, but in the sense of feeling a compelling and beautiful auditory experience. I hope that others will concentrate not only on the plot, character develoment and settings but will also enjoy the actual sensory experience of reading this wonderfully written book.

The '60s, the South, and being 14.


Book title: The Secret Life of Bees
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Secret Life of Bees - book cover picture

Wonderful book, just beautifully written and believably told through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. The story is set in the south, in the 60s, just after the Civil Rights Act was passed. The tale is as much an accounting of the fear-based reaction of southerners to the forces of changing times as it is about the search for acceptance and love, the deep need for parental love: the love that deems you worthy enough to walk this planet. It is about finding the Goddess within, and bravery, and taking risks, and for standing up for what you know in your heart to be true. And, it's about bees and their fascinating lives and social order - how we're the same and how we're different.

Sooo good!


Book title: The Nanny Diaries: A Novel

Binding: Paperback
The Nanny Diaries: A Novel - book cover picture

This book is hilariously entertaining with almost every page of outlandish demands from the Park Avenue "Mrs. X" for her son's "Nanny", but it's also hard not to feel sorry for all of the main characters. Depending on how you look at it, they all (including the Xes) have sad situations, money and luxuries aside. Sometimes I didn't know whether to hate the child's parents for neglecting their son and taking "Nanny" for granted or sympathize with them for not having the perfect marriage they try to emulate. Right or wrong, "The Nanny Diaries" is a great book that will make you laugh and maybe even cry. I would not suggest it for younger readers, though, because of some stronger language. But any book that can make me laugh out loud is definitely worth a read.

So So Prey


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

I've been a Davenport fan since "Rules of Prey" and have read every book in the Prey series since. If Secret Prey is your first Sandford story then by all means go ahead and read the others that came before b/c this storyline is little on the slow moving side. Since I'm a fan I'm going to continue reading the rest of the book but if you're new to the Prey series, you're best bet is to check out Sudden Prey or any of the others.

A must-have!

The Three Stooges : An Illustrated History, from Amalgamated Morons to American Icons - book cover picture

This book is a history of the Three Stooges that is literally without peer. It does an excellent job of covering the history of the Stooges, from their births through their marvelous careers, and on to their final curtain calls. After the history, there is a very nice look at the legacy of the Stooges, and the many modern comedians and actors that they influenced.The final chapter of the book is an excellent chronologically organized list of the Stooge's shorts, complete with credits, summary, review, and list of number of Stooges moves (e.g. "Slap Count: 9, Eye Pokes: 1, Conking Heads: 1"). Throughout the whole book, there is a sprinkling of many excellent black-and-white photos.As I hope the summary above shows, this is an excellent book on the Stooges, one that any Stooge fan (such as myself) would be glad to own. It is a must-have!

MAGNIFICENT SCIENCE FICTION


Book title: When We Were Real
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
When We Were Real - book cover picture

I have read five or six of Barton's (and co-authored) books, all were great, but this is my favorite so far. He writes in a very intense emotional and physical style, I find myself saying to myself as I read, yes, this is how it really is! This is adult science fiction, not the superficial fluff such as Arthur C. Clarke writes. If you are not easily offended by the 'adult' content this book contains, you should like it, the book was a page turner for me.

The King Must Die : A Novel (Vintage) - book cover picture

I read this book for my Themes In Literature class (a fancy title for a mythology class), and I must say that out of all the books I've ever had to read for school, it is one of my favorites (along with The Giver). I tend more towards Science Fiction and Fantasy books, so I really enjoyed being handed this book. Greek and Roman history intrigues me. This rendition of the Theseus myth brought the story more to life for me and caught my fascination.

Best Koontz book!!!!


Book title: Watchers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Watchers - book cover picture

Suspense, horror, pity, love, science, morals...it's all in Watchers! With a quick start, a excellent body with many sub-plots, and a superbly concocted finish, Koontz triumphs. All the essential elements of a good yarn are contained here. Every character is developed perfectly. Travis, the loner, Nora, the shy one, the lawyers, mobsters, cops, scientists and, of course Einstein and the Outsider are excellent! This was my first Koontz book and now I have read everyone of his novels!

Had to read this for my report on American Revolution.

April Morning - book cover picture

I had to read this book for my english report and I truly was bored out of my mind. If I could have I would have taken a gun from someone in the story and shot myself since I was too uninterested. I think 1 star is being generous. I love history and I love learning about the American Revolution. If I didn't have a love for it before I read the book, I would hate it too much now. I don't think I could reccomend this book to anyone, I wouldn't want them to suffer like I did.

Very important children's literature

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes - book cover picture

I received this book free as a child when another one of my books (from a school book order) didn't arrive in time. Reading it really made a big impression on me and definitely gave me a perspective of the WWII that I would not have heard about in school. It is a short read, but really gets a lot of great information and emotion in that short space. To me this book is just as important reading as the Diary of Anne Frank.
