The book is superb. The ending is magnificent. King's last paragraph ranks right up there as one of the most powerful endings in literature. Yes, literature; because Hearts in Atlantis is a beautiful, literary book. We have all known King could capture us with his narrative and make memorable characters, but this transcends all that. I actually re-read the last page five times just so I wouldn't have to close the book. Bravo!

Best Book I Was Ever Forced to Read

Book title: Snow Goose
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Snow Goose - book cover picture

The 7th grade grapevine said a substitute would come in for this reading every year because the teacher always cried. Oh brother!I'm glad it happened. It is now my favorite short story.(classified as such back then). It is a heartwarming/rending story about loyalty, friendships, kindnesses, unimagined bravery and love. Each experienced by a girl, a man and a beautiful snowgoose. Recommended for both sexes, and anyone old enough to read.I too, would love to get my hands on the cassette tape, and the movie. PBS ran it about 20 years ago. Please help!

Midwives by Bohjalian a stunning literary baby!

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

Midwives by Chris Bohjalian is a beautiful book. From cover to contents, this Bohjalian's 5th literary child, is a wonder to read. Not for the weak of spirit, Midwives is thestory of Sybil Danforth, a midwife in Vermont as told by her now grown daughter, Connie. Connie was a mere teenager at the time that tragedy struck her family -- in the midst of helping a woman give birth, she dies and the baby lives. Sybil is charged with killing her.

This book was one I waited for, ever so impatiently, upon hearing about it. It was well worth the wait.

It's opening line sets the stage for a parade of strong, independent women to spring forth from the pages. ANd continues right to the gripping ending. Told through Connie's eyes and Sybil's notebook, this weaves a tale of love, and heartbreak, and intrigue in a small town in Vermont.

I can't wait for the next one!

Diary of Dawid Sierakowiak reflects horror of Lodz Ghetto

Diary of Dawid Sierakowiak : Five Notebooks from the Lodz Ghetto - book cover picture

Writings about the Holocaust take many forms--novels, stories, poems, plays, histories. But, as `The Diary of Anne Frank` showed, none has the effect of actual reports left behind by its victims. `The Diary of Dawid Sierakowiak:
Five Notebooks from the Lodz Ghetto` is quite different from Anne Frank's memoirs because, unlike Anne, who was hidden away from the Nazis for years, Dawid lived openly in the sealed ghetto of this Polish city and was a witness to and victim of the deprivations, humiliations and cruelties inflicted on the Jewish populace. He was 15 years old when he began to keep his notes, and 19 when he died of illness and starvation in 1943. His diary, edited by Alan Adelson and translated by Kamil Turowski, is written with a sardonic humor and growing despair that can still horrify today. It is illustrated by shocking photos of life in the Lodz ghetto, most of them taken surreptitiously."

Irish mystery-adventure withGreeley's blend of magic&love

Book title: A Midwinter's Tale
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
A Midwinter's Tale - book cover picture

If this is your first McGrail novel-STOP. Leave now and go buy its three predecessors in paperback. It is worth following the magical singer -heroine and her smart [and, as needed, beserker] beau through their development in all of the previous novels. It also helps to see the pattern of past mysteries solved improving our understanding of our present and hopes for our future-- never so much as in this novel of multiple assaults, murders offset by love, forgiveness, wit, and healing.

no good guys no bad guys

Book title: Mystic River
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Mystic River - book cover picture

Mystic River is one of the most substantial books in any genre that I've read in a long time. Every character comes alive on the page, complete with enough condensed history to flesh out even the minor players. "Good" and "evil" exist as a backdrop but do not motivate the characters. My initial concern that the childhood tragedy that propels the rest of the story was an overdone theme was quickly overcome by the surprising direction that followed. Almost everyone in the book is testing the limits of love and finding out how far they will go to keep it. The three central figures, boyhood "friends" Sean, Dave, and Jim, are as conflicted about their actions as they are about the the nature of their relationships. They find very different ways of coping with both the past and the present, all taken to the extreme. Fate is the underlying catalyst, but the heart of this story is what they bring upon themselves.

Dreams Alive....

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Invitation - book cover picture

For anyone who wants to live life more abundantly, lovingly, honestly and more fully this is an excellent book. It speaks to the very essence that we are all filled with and touches your soul. It moves beyond the outer world of appearances and has us look to within for what connects us, holds us together and speaks to us. She has an excellent way of making spirituality an everyday choice and is well aware of the trials that come of living a life of love in a world so often filled with fear. I highly reccomend this book to anyone regardless of age, gender or anything else that we so often divide ourselves with. It is an amazing book filled with insight and just by reading the poem that she draws her book from it will change your way of looking at the world.

The Garden : A Parable - book cover picture

This incredible book was written not only by a learned scholar of Tibetan Buddhism, but by one who has obviously experienced realizations of the path. In this book Geshe Michael provides us with all of the information we need to embark upon the same spiritual journey, and to experience its magical results. If this whets your appetite for more, he also has created a series of correspondence courses which provide even more elucidation of the Buddhist path to enlightenment. (not a money making scheme-these course are free to those who cannot afford them) These are available through the Asian Classics Institute. If you like this book, try also Santidevas "Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life"

Zollinger's Atlas of Surgical Operations - book cover picture

Truely one of the most successful books of the kind, the strucure is well designed, the operations included cover a eide range of procedures, and most noticeble is the very high quality of the explanatory figures, sometimes by just brawsing through them you get 80% of what to do... the text is well written and concise. You will find many approaches for each operation. of course it will be impossible to gather all the surgical craft in one book. but this one succeeds in collecting a large chunk of it. i highly recommend it for all juniors and postgrads alike.

Best hiking how-to out there...

The Complete Hiker, Revised and Expanded - book cover picture

As an avid year-round hiker, I have read several "how-to" guides on hiking and backcountry travel, and they were all "OK". Then I stumbled upon "The Complete Hiker" at a library and finally found the gem I had been searching for (and I quickly ordered a nice new copy). This book has it all; it even covers winter hiking and snowshoeing, which is quite important to me since I can't see hanging up my pack just because it snowed! The personal accounts are fantastic and the writing style is like having a conversation with the authors. The overall layout of the book is it's strength...displaying a fresh concept that never gets boring no matter how mant times I consult it. A complete guide indeed.
