Dubliners (Cambridge Literature) - book cover picture

In the pages of "Dubliners", you will find the most poignant, insightful, and excellent short stories that the English Language has ever known, each of them full of interpretation, underlying meaning, and written with a superfluously elegant style that is truly humbling, no matter how many times you have read the stories.Of the fifteen in this collection, which he wrote in his early twenties, my personal favourites were "The Sisters", "An Encounter", "A Mother", and, of course, "The Dead", with its tragic, haunting narrative."Dubliners" was my starting point for the enigmatic world of James Joyce's fiction, and even at fourteen years old, I found it accessible and incredibly enjoyable. Do not deny yourself the pleasure of his work; these powerful stories are a world of discovery, that will enchant and provoke you with each reading.It is definitely the most amazing fiction I have ever read.

This book was WOW. I give it five stars, I would give it more but five stars is as high as it can get. I loved the characters and lived through the characters. Papa was probably my favorite character. His wisdom and stories help better everyone else. There was a lot of lessons learn from this book. This book is basically a hood legend, so if you like all that gangsta stuff this is the book you should be reading. Tracy Brown you did it again, don't worry about ther haters because they the ones that will help you better yourself. I love you and your writings. Keep them coming.

The Christmas Mystery - book cover picture

This tape was really neat! As soon as it starts playing, everybody hushes up. The story captures adults' attention, and children's too. It tells the story of Joachaim, a boy who finds an Advent calendar with a special story in it. Mysterious things happen, until the end when the truth comes out. The end isn't completely satisfying, but the rest is wonderful! Completely recommended! Although children may ask lots of questions whern the author refers to places in Scandinavia. Great if you love mysteries without blood and guts!

Brian Jacques has done it again with _The Long Patrol_!!! This 10th installment of the Redwall series gives us a rare glimpse into the life of the famous Long Patrol of Salamandastron.

Woman on the Edge of Time - book cover picture

Read this for the same "Utopia/Dystopia" class - and was captivated. After having picked through a half dozen other books - I'm amazed at how Marge Piercy is able to write cover so many genres - from historical fiction to contemporary fiction to science fiction. I can say she's become one of my all time favorite writers - and personally most influential.This - probably one of her best works (also read, Gone to Soldiers). I don't want to give away too much of the story line - as it might spoil some of the fun of exploring the unique and creative storyline.

The ZIMMERMAN TELEGRAM - book cover picture

Barbara Tuchman is one of the leading historians of the 20th century ; she proves it here once more. In this book she manages to use an anecdote - the telegram - to explain in a thrilling and convincing way the reasons for the US to enter the war. It is a brilliant book thanks to her remarkable style which blends suspense and clarity and yet no compromise with historical truth.Many historians are experts and have a vast knowledge of their subject. Very few like Barbara Tuchman make their knowledge accessible in an enticing way to the "man in the street".

Fifth Chinese Daughter

Book title: Fifth Chinese Daughter
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Fifth Chinese Daughter - book cover picture

I'd give Fifth Chinese Daughter 5 Stars. The main reason is because I enjoyed seeing the difference between the Old Chinese, New Chinese, and American cultures. An example is when Older Sister has her weading. She does things a lot like to day, such as, the order in which the events in the wedding occur. However, unlike American culture, the bride was not paid much attention to, whereas her family, her new inlaws, and the groom were mostly congradulated.

An excellent book - does NOT have a religious agenda

Book title: The Light of Other Days
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Light of Other Days - book cover picture

This book was extremely thought provoking and well written, and I'm sure many of the other reviewers can tell you that. However, a big complaint I've seen on here is that some people were offended by Mr. Clarke's speculations that their religion is fictitious.

This move by the author does, in fact, add a lot to the story. If you had this technology, would you want to use it as it was used in the book, or would you be afraid of what you would find out?

Take the story for what it is. And remember, it is only a story. It's obviously a powerful one if people find it so offensive
