Surprising first novel

Binding: Paperback
The Shape-Changer's Wife - book cover picture

Sharon Shinn's first novel is so different from her later work that it almost seems she made a deliberate decision to change direction. Like her later work it is a fantasy, but one written in elegiac tone. While a short novel, its study of selfishness and renunciation make her other novels seem a bit fluffy by contrast. Her angel series and other stories are very popular so clearly this author made a canny move. Still I for one am sorry not to see more of this Sharon Shinn.

Unbelievably good


Book title: Saying Grace
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Saying Grace - book cover picture

As one of the cover blurbs said so well, it was hard to know how to read this book: quickly so as to find out what happens, or slowly to savor the writing. I didn't think I could love a book as much as I loved DOMESTIC PLEASURES, but SAYING GRACE was equally mesmerizing. The background of a private school with all its politics and conflicts made for fascinating reading. How Gutcheon juggled so many story lines without creating a confusing mess, I have no idea. At first, I wasn't sure I'd ever keep all the characters straight, but before long I was pulled into each story and had no problem at all. In fact, I felt as if I were there at The Country School right along with Rue and Emily and Mike and Chandler and Henry and all the others who peopled this story. The book was by turns hilarious, sad, illuminating, joyous, frustrating, and heartbreaking. It was never boring. Once again, Ms. Gutcheon has awed me with her talent. I only wish she would write faster.

Lost classic from my childhood--rediscovered!


Book title: The Children of Green Knowe
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Children of Green Knowe - book cover picture

I loved this book (and all in this series) as a child in the mid-60's. I never forgot the stories and characters: Tolly, Susan, Jacob, Toby, Alexander, Linnet, and Green Noah. But unfortunately, I forgot the titles and the author's name! I recently ran across the title on my daughter's accelerated reading list from school. I made her check it out from the school library so I could read it. Reading it again was like finding a long lost friend. It is one of those wonderful books in which not a lot happens (in terms of being plot-driven), but much happens under the surface and in the imagination of the reader. If you missed it as a child, don't miss it now. Share it with a child you love.

Facercise: The Dynamic Muscle-Toning Program for Renewed Vitality and a More Youthful Appearance - book cover picture

I was watching the television one morning while getting ready for work. I saw Carole Maggio demonstrating her facial exercises and when she said she was 56 years old I really started paying attention. My mum is 56 and doesn't look anywhere near as good as Carole. She talked about her book, video and private classes. I purchased the book that evening. I started doing the exercises twice daily. I'm 32 and in just 17 days my eyes appeared larger, my lips were definitely firmer and larger and of all things my nose tip was turned back up. It had actually gotten a bit long. I even had to change the color of my foundation because my skin had gone from a sallow color to a pinky glow. I can't wait to see what more happens. I bought my Mum the video and am watching her results. What a great and affordable way to stay young and good looking! This is a great find.Regards

But keep in mind that bestsellers are bestsellers because people like them. 1 star reviewers should have quit by book 5 if they were really so bord.

This is a book that every person should read


Book title: Big Picture, The
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Big Picture, The - book cover picture

I read Dr. Carson's first two books and thought they were really good. But then I read The Big Picture and it was really great. I am a firm believer in the Bible but have a hard time seeing that BIG PICTURE. Ben Carson did a wonderful job in conveying what the Big Picture is suppose to look like for those of us who have a hard time seeing it. Reading the book is one thing - doing what is says in there is another. After reading this book, my thinking has changed and my life with it. If anybody is questioning their life in any way, this book is a must.

The oldest are even better...

Blind Promises (Love Inspired) - book cover picture

I have copies of almost everything Diana Palmer has written (exception: "Night of the Unicorn" published under penname Diana Blayne). I love the way she tells a story, as do her multitude of other fans. I have found many of the older stories, those published in the early '80s, actually to be even more compelling and enjoyable than the latest written. "Blind Promises" is one of those and I recommend it to readers. Others recommended are "Denin and Lace" and "Tangled Destinies" (also published under the penname), and "Betrayed by Love."

King's Best


Book title: The Stand
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Stand - book cover picture

Hands down, this is easily King's best and coincidentally probably his most popular. Not only is it my favorite King novel, it is one of my favorite novels of all time - definitely in my top five. Essentially, it's the story of the decimation of human life on earth due to a mass epidemic. A handful of people are unaffected and they are drawn together to try and figure out why. King wrote this in 1979 and although he has come close on several occasions, in my opinion, had never been able to eclipse it. If you get a chance and you have yet to read it, make sure you find time to do so. BTW, the TV adapted mini-series was awful.

The Nature of Mind - book cover picture

This collection of articles is one of the best available in phil. of mind. Its range and completeness is amazing, starting from selections of Descartes, Locke and Reid up to papers on eliminative materialism and machine functionalism. I'd definitely recommend this for anybody willing to get serious about the subject. If you haven't already studied the papers contained here, do it, for they 're absolutely fundamental to our current understanding of the problems in the phil. of mind.
