Thinking out of the box

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
My Ishmael - book cover picture

This book explains, in language that makes sense, why the world is the way it is today. It is a gripping work that produces all kinds of thoughts and ideas. It provides a glimpse of what life would be like outside of the box we are in that prompts us to destroy the world.My Ishmael has the potential of changing lives for the better. It is depressing in places, though, so don't read it if you want light humor!

Advice for non-British readers: get a good Tube map first!


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

First off, this book is terrific. I found the story and characters imaginative and mesmerizing. We never had the TV series in the US, but without having seen it, I feel the book stands on its own as a complete work of fiction.One quick bit of advice for non-British readers: the story relies heavily on wordplay based on the names of London tube stations. If you are unfamiliar with the London Underground, get yourself a good map and familiarize yourself with it before you read the book. If you have friends who've lived in London, ask them to tell you about the tube stations mentioned in the book what the stations look like, what the reputation is, what the neighborhood is like. Knowing a bit about the Underground will greatly deepen your appreciation of the book.

Thorkild Jacobsen's Sumerian Translations

The Harps That Once . . . : Sumerian Poetry in Translation - book cover picture

Sumerian texts, particularly poetry, are arguably the most difficult texts to translate. However, Dr. Jacobsen performs with extreme expertise in rendering the flow and feeling of these texts into english. One of the finest Sumerologists of the 20th century, Jacobsen brings a long dead culture to life. Very enjoyable to read and provided with detailed explanations of concepts. Mythological literature is also included.

Sociology: A Down-To-Earth Approach - book cover picture

Admittedly I haven't read a lot of sociology textbooks, but this one is quite good. Every chapter has real-life examples (and many of the author's own experiences), so it not only makes you know the theory but also feel it at work in our societies, although the author writes quite a lot of his own feelings (it's dead obvious that he wants to change the world), which I don't know if it's a good point or not.

Not your mother's history book

Alternate Channels: The Uncensored Story of Gay and Lesbian Images on Radio and Television, 1930s to the Present - book cover picture

Witty, insightful, daring, complete, and as non-dry as you can get, this book goes where none have gone before, not only regaling us an authoritative on-screen compendium of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered images, but the "stories behind the stores" - lesbians invading NBC studios, gay activists interrupting Walter Cronkite on the air, from the tortured, pitiful images of the early "exposes" of "the gay lifestyle" to full, responsible news coverage of activism. Neatly divided into small chapters, it weaves the tale of the first whispers of the "love that dare not speak its name" through to the out and loud shouting of "Ellen" and "Will & Grace" (and the format, for better or for worse, makes for great bathroom reading). An absolute must-have for every queer library and TV fan.

Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton - book cover picture

All Chernow's books are excellent, well written and informative,but this one is the best. For those of us who have thought our country Just happened by some smart guys setting down for a few months and working it out, they should read this book first. You feel history being made by smart people but determined ones as well. We are lucky to have had Hamiltons and to have gifted writters like Chernow.
I can;t wait for his next book.

Could this be a glimpse of what lies ahead?


Book title: Parable of the Sower
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Parable of the Sower - book cover picture

Science fiction is sadly ignored, especially in the AA community. This book, however, is a fantastic introduction to the powerful words created by Octavia Butler. Not your stereotypical sci-fi (there are no spaceships, interplanetary wars, ray guns, etc.) but this book invites you to condsider what if: What if the world that you knew was filled with gated communities, corrupt police who will investigate a crime for money, drugs that so alter your mind that fire is akin to sex. This book will challenge what you beleive, your faith in a higher being, man , politics. A realistic view of what could be the future. I like to think that this book parallels the problems that we face today: the crack epidemic, religion, classism and crime. This is a book that should not be passed over but devoured.

The Legend of Luke (Redwall, Book 12) - book cover picture

A great fan of the Redwall seires, I relish the comming each new book and read them over and over again. Having read all the books in this classic series and thoroughly enjoying each one, I find that all the books seem to fit together, as a true author would write them to be. When I first started reading them, I thought that the sequence of these weren't relevant, so if you're curious about what happened to Martin, Gonff and the rest of those famous characters, read this book! And if you just want a taste of true Redwall style, this would be the place to start!
