The Midwife's Apprentice (Newberry Medal Book) - book cover picture

I tried reading this when I was 10, and when I got to the part about the cat and the eel, I stopped. But last year it was required, so I read it again. It was really good! I was suprised. After that initial scene, there is no violence. It's a good book, but it may be too realistic for younger kids. Karen Cushman is a really good writer, and her stuff gives you a really good sense of the time that each book is set.

Waiting in Vain - book cover picture

It is a great book. The characters are people that you can relate to on a day to day basis. As a musician I must say that the character I-nelik reminded me of a cross between my friends Chinna Smith and Glen Browne, who I played with in Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. The depiction of Jamaica and Jamaican people was real, in contrast to the way they are usually portrayed in books and movies. Reading this book is an ideal introduction to Jamaican culture and Jamaican people

Beloved - book cover picture

This book brings the style "magic realism" to it's epitomy. Read ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE if you liked this... This book IS complex, it IS overpowering, and it IS AWESOME!!! I am in high school, and I read it by choice and loved it. I think it's one of the best novels in the English language. Morrison's style is unequaled, and her voice is too. I would also suggest SONG OF SOLOMON, but she is so talented that you can't tell the same person wrote them both. She is an actress with a pen. No wonder she was the first person EVER to be escorted by the king of Sweden when she won the Nobel. BRILLIANT.

James Cameron's Titanic - book cover picture

This book is the best book for anyone who is a Titanic movie fan, whether it be for the actors in it, or for the desire to know more about the making of this awesome movie. In reading over some of the reviews, it escapes me why someone who wasn't a fan of the film would even bother to purchase this book. I guess some people just like to complain! Do not fear being disappointed in this one...It is all you dreamed of and more! NonTitanic movie fans...Buy a book on a subject you ENJOY!!

Must-Have for Anyone with an interest in Literary Criticism

Literary Criticism: An Introduction to Theory and Practice (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

Literary Criticism is one field of study that, no doubt, confuses most people with all the "-isms". Charles Bressler's book is a very useful tool in sorting out all these "-isms". This is a well-organized book: each chapter focuses on a different theory and discusses the theory's historical development, assumptions, methodology and even has questions for analysis (great help when writing a paper). The chapter culminates in two essays of application of that particular theory. This is the most popular and widely-circulated book among Lit Majors in my university. And this is one that you should definitely own.

Plunkitt Tells it Like it is

Book title: Plunkitt of Tammany Hall (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Plunkitt of Tammany Hall (The Bedford Series in History and Culture) - book cover picture

Plunkitt was a king in a world that needed benevolent despots. In a place like turn of the century of New York before Keynesian economics and the Welfare State, Tammany was the only relief the poor knew. Plunkitt reveals with refreshing honesty the seemingly rough and coarse manner with which one needed to play the game of politics in his town. However, one must look at it in context. This was a different time from our own, and the reader must imagine whether a person of Plunkitt's demeanor can last in the information age political world. Then again, the book also illustrates how many of the problems Tammany had still exist today.

Terrific manual for using your camcorder and editing!

Camcorder Video: Shooting and Editing Techniques - book cover picture

I found this to be a terific manual for using your camcorder
and editing your videos. The only drawback is that there
isn't a sequel in print at this time! More!
I film, produce, host and edit a local access television
show and this book helped tremendously.
It is written to address the beginners questions as well as
the "imtermediate" level.
The local access television station is ordering more for

Stellaluna - Oversize edition - book cover picture

My daughter and I have spent many hours perusing the CD_ROM version of Stellaluna. We both love the story of the baby bat adopted by a family of birds, and I like the underlying theme: We can be different and still be friends, and nobody's the best at everything. The graphics are good, the animation is better than most kid disks I've seen, and there's plenty for them to click on as they work their way through the pages.

Walt Whitman As If He Really Walked on this Planet

Book title: Walt Whitman's America : A Cultural Biography
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Walt Whitman's America : A Cultural Biography - book cover picture

Reynolds' Walt Whitman is a fellow who absorbed his culture, tried to save it, but finally sold himself to it. The other Whitman biographies I've read always had a scholarly ax to grind; this one seems, not to cut away Walt Whitman to a one dimensional person, but to find Walt Whitman living a multi-dimensional life in an urbanizing, industrializing, upwardly literate American society. I thorougly enjoyed the chapters on mid-century American Culture; but was looking for an itinerary of hospital visits that Whitman made. It appears that the author appropriately limited himself to what Whitman reported of his own activity as a hospital nurse and to what few recollections of patients.
