Religion and Empire : The Dynamics of Aztec and Inca Expansionism (New Studies in Archaeology) - book cover picture

It explains how modern/western thought fails when applied to the cultures of the Aztecs and Incas. This book is good for beginning students for the narrative is easy to follow. However, it is outstanding for the more advanced scholar. This book would make a great companion book to broader studies of these two cultures. The authors criticise modern archaeology for its dogmatic unbending views.The authors also take modern political theory and apply it to these ancient cultures. What happens is that it falls apart. Marx, Hegel, et al have met their match against these ancient ones. What a great departure from the faulty theories of socialism & communism.

Secrets of a Summer Night (Avon Historical Romance) - book cover picture

This ranks up there as one of my favorite Lisa Kleypas books. She really has a gift for story telling and dialogue. The very best part for me was the interactions between the four girls, especially Lillian and Daisy. Makes one wish Lisa had written a book just about *them*.

Simon and Annabelle are fine characters, and I really felt for Annabelle and her mother. I really wasn't offended by Annabelle's frank assessment of her need for money. Frankly, it was kind of refreshing. And, she wanted to help her mother out of a certain problematic relationship and marrying a rich man would do that.

I've recently dicovered Lisa's books and they are truly delightful. This one is only the beginning to what looks to be an extremely interesting series.

Travels With Lizbeth: Three Years on the Road and on the Streets - book cover picture

Lars Eighners book, "Travels with Lizbeth" is an account of homelessness, written in the elegant style of another era. It is almost as though Robinson Crusoe, instead of being cast up on a desert island, instead found himself, with his faithful dog companion, stranded on the streets and highways of the American southwest. The strange characters, the improbable events, and the philisophical musings on his state, make Eighner a true character, and one is amazed that he was able to climb out of that morass, though perhaps not for long, as Eighner once again is living on the edge of homelessness. One can't help but chuckle about his accounts of the weird people he encounters, made all the more interesting by his sexual orientation (he is gay).

The Valley of Horses - book cover picture

I loved all 4 of these books!!! I have been waiting 12 years for the 5th book to come out and have in the mean-time reread them over and over, collected first addition copies and created an online discussion group to talk about them, the Summer Meetings that other fans are starting in different regions, and other book related aspects of life, including cooking like the characters in the books!!! I recomend for EVERYONE to read them, expesially young women! I read them at the age of 13 and Ayla gives a great example of what a strong independant woman is!!

Typical regency, but that's not a bad thing at all!

Sin and Sensibility (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

Ignore the negative reviews - this is indeed the "usual" regency romance, but then that's why regency fans read themm isn't it? Enoch takes us back to a time when girls were virginal and modest, but secretly longed to be swept away by a scandalous but romantic black sheep. Nell has promised to obey her brother guardians and marry as expected of a woman of her station, but when they assign their friend, the Marquis of Deverill, to keep an eye on her, her resolve is tempted. This is a fine, funny, sensual, romantic regency romp, and fans of the genre won't be the least disappointed.

Monkey Business: Swinging Through the Wall Street Jungle - book cover picture

Anyone who is thinking of going into investment banking or anyone who is in it should read this hilarious book. These two guys realized that the emperor had no clothes and then they wrote about it. Anyone who doesn't find this book entertaining is either way too uptight, is dead, or is a defensive banker. This is a funny book and that is what it should be read as. No more, no less. The entertainment value is very high and it is a good read. There is even a moral to the story. Go out and read Monkey Business, you will be happy you did.

fascinating look inside the Islamic Terrorist mind


Book title: The Lion's Game
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Lion's Game - book cover picture

The Lion's Game surprised me with such fascinating detail. I was surprised to find when I finished, that the book was over 7oo pages- it flew by. The story flips from 1st person narrator to third person as we follow this cat and mouse chase of good guys trying to catch the bad guy. What makes this novel stand out against the formula Ludlums is the research DeMille has done to get inside the mind of this religious terrorist. His characters are great, although I continue to find his women and especially his development of romantic relationships forced and stereotyped (as especially noted in Charm School) However, the issues of justice, retaliation, revenge are all presented provocatively, and make us wonder who the bad guys really are. Especially when the CIA has a hand in matters! A great read and well written!

Weddings - book cover picture

Great job Colin Cowie! I loved the book, but I did find that people with low income would not be able to pull off such an elaborate wedding. The book gave me some very innovative ideas with a smaller budget in mind. Some of his taste is a little to Hollywood for me, but very different and I can appreciate that about Colin! Hey Colin write your next book about how to have a great wedding on a minimal budget.

An overview of Thomas and Thomism.


Book title: Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox - book cover picture

Mr. Chesterton wrote a charming overview of the Dumb Ox, one of the smarterst men ever! This book is more like several postcard close-ups than a panaorama of the life of Aquinas. It inclused several humorous anecdotes of Aquinas'a life, and two of his greatest experiences in life. The first what when he was in deep mediations and was given the Solomon Question--"I will give you a blank check, what do you want?" How did he answer this question? The second event centers around Aquinas's writing of the Summa Theologica, wher he caimed to have a vision from God that made everything that he had ever written look like straw. Some he saw ground his mind to a standstill.I felt a kinship to Aquinas, a great man with a great mind who could have been anything and everything, but chose to be a monk. Eventually the Dumb Ox's bellow was a shout heard round the world!

the truth your preacher desperately wants to hide

The Jesus Mysteries : Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God? - book cover picture

For years I searched in vain for the answers that this book contains. It is one of the most powerful and basic books available for refuting Christian literalism. The essence of its benefit is this: there are crucial comments made in the ancient texts written by Clement of Alexandria which are some of the weightiest arguments against Christian literalism that exist. Yet hardly any Christian preacher has even heard of them! Modern Christianity thrives on ignorance. This covering up of relevant facts is just a form of Christian dishonesty which has kept literalism alive. Get the facts and think for yourself. Jesus IS a ripoff of the ancient Mystery Cults; Osiris was born of a virgin and resurrected just as Jesus was...in mythological terms only. Even if you don't agree with my conclusion, NO ONE can refute the similarities between Jesus and NUMEROUS ancient Sun Gods. Jesus is only a copy of them.
