Ultima is a true look at New Mexico

Bless Me, Ultima - book cover picture

I was born and raised in Northern New Mexico. Whenever new friends ask me what it was like to live here, I tell them to read Bless Me Ultima. Anaya's book is filled with the spiritalism and humor that make life in Northern NM special. His character of Ultima is as real as I have ever read. Perhaps others will read the book and take it as a piece of far-out fiction. However, from reading this book, I know that Rudolfo has experienced the mystery of this sacred area. This book stands head and shoulders above anything else Anaya has done. It is already a classic for Chicano readers and is practically a Bible for those of us who are from the area.

The Great Hunt (The Wheel of Time, Book 2) - book cover picture

This book had the hardest job of any fictional work in the last twenty years, perhaps. It had to follow greatness and not disapoint its loyal followers. This book not only held its own, it may have surpassed its predicessor. The plot develops into a masterpiece of fictional brilliance, with a classic matchup between two well defined sides of good and evil. The Great hunt tells the story of the quest for "good" to strike a blow to the plans of the dark one's plans. Jordan tells the tale with reguard to particular detail and character development, something most contemporary authors fail to do. THe author lets us into a world solely of his creation with memorible characters and relationships. His ability to create a history for this place leaves the reader mesmorized and wanting more.

Loved It!

Paranoia - book cover picture

Be careful what reviews you read on this page, as at least one will ruin the ending for you. It's one of the longer reviews.
This is not only an exciting thriller, but a touching account of a father-son relationship very well expressed. It was a nice contrast to the main page-turning storyline.
I loved this book from the "grabs you" beginning to its thought provoking ending, and have my husband, brother and friends buying their own copies so we can discuss it.
No slow parts, engaging characters, thrilling story. You won't be able to put it down.

In the book, A Long Way From Chicago, the Grandmother was an unusual person who lied like it was written on her forehead. The Grandmother was unique because she kept a shotgun in the kitchen for protection even though the town is mellow. She also doesn't really like to were dresses and you usually find her in the kitchen. The way she lies is just incredible she forges famous peoples names on things they could have worn and sells it for money. And she also just plane lies whenever she opens her mouth which is funny. You'll get some good laughs out of it.

Turns critical methodology on its head.

Book title: A Biblical History of Israel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Biblical History of Israel - book cover picture

The first 100 pages discusses the methodology of modern historiography and demonstrates how biblical critics continue to use out of date methodologies in their attempt to destroy the concept that ancient Israel actually existed. Especially telling is his discussion on testimony. They maintain that the biblical testimony about Israel's history is as valid a source as any other. Even modern archeaology is not neutral but needs to be interpreted; therefore it becomes another testimony in the mix.The next two hundred pages discuss the history of Israel with this positive-testimony model. They do not paint as comprehensive a history as some might like (along the lines of Bright). Instead they focus on the problem areas rasied by the text.This is a terrific book and it is taking a very important place in my library.

She Flew the Coop : A Novel Concerning Life, Death, Sex and Recipes in Limoges, Louisiana - book cover picture

I have been a fan of Michael Lee West's since I got an advance copy of American Pie. Coming from a VERY Southern family, West knows not only how to capture the voices of the South but how to put pen to paper to make them come to life. Each distinct voice (and trust me, they are VERY distinct) is followed by a chapter written in the third person to give the reader a fully omnipotent view of life in Limoges, Louisiana. From Dee Dee Robichaux (the town tramp) to Vangie Nepper (the wife of the husband that Dee Dee is sleeping around with) to the battered Sophie, this is an absolutely wonderful detour through the world of the South.

The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, Book 3) - book cover picture

This was the perfect, long-awaited conclusion to the fantastic series- I literally couldn't put it down. Pullman's skill is impeccable and I have read few series equal to His Dark Materials. Granted, I sobbed my way through the ending, but I could expect no less from such an author. I sincerely hope Pullman will continue the adventures of Lyra and Will, if only so that I can satisfy my imagination with what happens to them after this book ends. Pullman took on a large idea scheme when he started this trilogy, but he tackled it and conquered it, and the result is the best fantasy trilogy since the Lord of the Rings. Thank you Mr. Pullman!

The Good Soldier Svejk and His Fortunes in the World War - book cover picture

Humbly Report Sir....If there is such a thing as a humorous war story, this is it. The blundering idiot (or genius?) Svejk takes us on a thrilling, unpredictable and round-about journey through Bohemia during WW1. The unassuming and inadvertently witty Svejk will certainly make you laugh throughout this book. It's a shame that the author didn't live long enough to continue Svejk's journey into the Second World War!

Cruel Sanctuary: A Father Mark Townsend Mystery (Father Mark Townsend Mystery) - book cover picture

Father Brad Reynolds, S.J. has created a winning protagonist in this mystery set amongst the pews of St. Joseph's -- and the downtown streets where the homeless youth's struggle to survive. It is nice to have a mystery that tugs the heartstrings a bit without trying to "preach." (Sorry, pun intended)I haven't read the author's two previous mysteries, but you can bet I'll be searching them out after reading this one. It is rare that a contemporary mystery can have a plot that still surprises, and motives that become apparent only in the last few pages. Deftly handled, I look forward to reading more of Father Brad Reynolds' mysteries! Highly Recommended.

Gone for Soldiers - book cover picture

This is a excellent piece of work and well worth the read. It goes down easy, is fast moving and just simply fun. In my mind's eye, I had not imagined quite the personality traits of some of the individuals portrayed in this book, but they hey, I did not know them personally either. The story covered a period of time I feel has been quite neglected in our class rooms, therefore should be new territory for "non-history types." If the book can stimulate further study in this area by interested individuals, then so much the better. Keep up the good work here Mr. Jeff and give us more of the same!
