Suffering and Longsuffering and life goes on...

The Bridge on the Drina (Phoenix Fiction Series) - book cover picture

"generation after generation learnt not to mourn overmuch what the troubled waters had borne away...[life] was incessantly wasted and spent, yet none the less it lasted and endured `like the bridge on the Drina'"This quote describes well the overall tone of this novel. If history can be described as a great river, the Bridge on the Drina tells the story of the riverbed. It takes a little while to "get into" but it is beautifully written. I highly reccommend it to anyone who wants to better understand Balkan nationalism and the wars of the early 90s, or to anyone who has an interest in Balkan history. I would suggest that you have a basic knowledge of the history of that time period though before reading it, otherwise you won't appreciate it as much.

An amazing glimpse into mental illness


Book title: The Catcher in the Rye
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

I read this book at 16 because a teacher told me I would relate to the main character. This was soon after I had been diagnosed with manic-depressive illness. I am now 21 and have read the book several times and the more I experience and live through the symptons of my illness, I see how the entire book seems to show that Holden might have been experiencing a manic episode. And it is amazing that it was written so long ago, before much was known of the illness. I adore this book because the thoughts and emotions I sometimes have that seem to be so terribly painfull and unexplainable are all stated crystal clear right there in the pages. I reccomend this book to anyone who has manic-depression, or anyone who wishes to understand such a person's emoitional obstacles. I also highly reccomend all other works by Salinger, particularly "Raise High the Roofbeam, Carpenters and Seymour, an Introduction".

How to Buy, Sell, & Profit on eBay: Kick-Start Your Home-Based Business in Just Thirty Days - book cover picture

Who knew a business book could be this great? Most of them are dry, dry, dry, boring and dry. Conversational and entertaining in tone, valuable and educational in content - this book kept me interested from the first page to the last. By the end, my excitement had grown so much I immediately got on eBay and turned my buyers's account into that of a seller. Ginsberg's first hand experience is both invaluable and incredibly rare in the glutted and mostly redundant eBay book marketplace. He teaches you how to stand out and create a niche for yourself in the goldmine that is the world's largest shopping mall. Armed with his book, I'm ready to go.

The Enchanted Castle (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

I first read this book at the age of 10, and have made a point of reading it again nearly yearly ever since, for more than 30 years. It is timeless and magical, and for adults as well as children, as long as they have kept their childhood beliefs in enchantment alive. I am not in the habit of gushing praise, but this is absolutely the best book I have ever read, and has become a part of my children's lives as well. I am so happy to see it in print again. My mother searched everywhere for it in the 60's because I was so enamored with it that I wanted to copy it by hand, if necessary. I am now ordering a new untattered copy to keep forever.

A COMPLETE SUCCESS


Book title: MANHOOD IN AMERICA
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
MANHOOD IN AMERICA - book cover picture

This is a prodigiously researched and exceptionally well-written history of manhood in America -- something every man should read, and something every man COULD read, given the author's engaging, accessible writing style. I'm enormously impressed by the wealth of information contained in it and the author's wide-ranging understanding of American history, culture and popular culture. When you read this, one realizes the historical precedent, for one thing, of electing presidents of limited capacity. This is a seriously good book.

Daughter of poor family outsmarts her rich uncle and his son


Book title: Seven Daughters & Seven Sons
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Turtleback
Seven Daughters & Seven Sons - book cover picture

This book retells a traditional Arab folktale about how a woman helps her poor family to prosperity and revenge themselves on her rich uncle who scorned them. Not only does this book relate a great story that many of us haven't heard, it also gives a clear and colorful picture of the ancient Arabian culture. The characters are believable and easily likable and the story proceeds quickly, making this an excellent choice for middle school readers and up. I especially recommend this book for young women, because the way the main character Buran believes in herself and takes on a whole society is quite inspiring. If you have read this book and enjoyed it, may I also suggest you check out these stories?

A beautiful and moving novel


Book title: Rose's Garden
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Rose's Garden - book cover picture

"Rose's Garden" is one of the most beautiful and moving novels I have ever read. Though it is the story of a man stricken with grief about his wife's death, it is in the end a novel about joy. Conrad Morrisey's love for his wife returns him to the world of his small New Hampshire town and to the lives of those who surround him. The descriptions of gardens are just lovely, and Conrad's movement toward resignation and peace will leave you heartbroken and elated. Everyone should read this book.

My two-year old loves it!

Stand Back', Said the Elephant, 'I'm Going to Sneeze - book cover picture

My two-year old found an original version of this book at
her grandparents and it immediately became required daily
reading.

Even though she can't read yet, the rhyming lyrics and the
drawings enthralled her. She loves animals of all types
and quickly was able to identify the animals in the book.

Nothing compares to hearing your "baby" recite lines like,
"Oh no, oh no! said the Buffalo."
