The Elements of Java Style - book cover picture

This is an excellent quality work that can be used to instill quality in others. Don't bother writing up a long list of company do's and don'ts, just hand out this book. It covers coding style, documentation style, and lots of Java tips and techniques. It's exactly what I've been looking for, I just wish someone would write a similar book for HTML, XML, XSL, Transact-SQL, and all the other languages we use at work. This book is very concise, I was able to read it in a day, but it very heavily favored quality over quantity. I can't think of a tip that they left out, and every tip that needed illustration had an accompanying clear example. A perfect work and just what I've been needing.

Emergency Room (Point) - book cover picture

This was a "couldn't-put-it-down-for-a-minute& quot; book. The setting in the book was constantly changing to keep readers interested at all times. From Gun Shot Wounds, to a Moter cycle accident, Caroline B. Cooney's Emergency Room was action packed. I've read many books about hospitals and emergency rooms, but this one is the best because it is the most realistic! This is definitely a must have book for anyone who likes action packed books!

A most believable Richard III!

Sunne in Splendour - book cover picture

I have read every Penman book but one. Her writing is well researched, flowing and one feels transported in time while reading. She breathes life into her characters. Not since reading Margaret Campbell Barnes' "The King's Bed" 20 years ago have I enjoyed a book more. I was prepared to like Richard. As the youngest son, he was not raised to be a king; nor did he welcome the task. I believe Ms. Penman convincingly puts this point across. I am in awe of her considerable writing skills. Her research goes beyond the extra mile, making her work untouchable. Reading "Sunne," called for a second read of Ms. Barnes' book. I am looking forward to Ms. Penman's book of Eleanor and Henry. In the meantime I will have to be content with a second reading of "The Sunne in Splendor," "Here Be Dragons," "Falls the Shadow," "The Reckoning," and "When Christ and His Saints Slept!"

McClairen's Isle: The Reckless One (McClairens Isle) - book cover picture

The Reckless One swept me up into a world of wicked rogues and regal ladies. Raine is the ultimate scoundrel hero, wounded in his soul yet shrugging off his troubles as he sweeps into Scotland and romances the mysterious lady he finds haunting his castle home. They don't make men like that anymore, and probably it's a good thing because my heart won't take it. Can't wait for the next installment of McClairen's Isle.

Baseball strangles reality

Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop., The - book cover picture

Coover's novel represents the supreme good and the ultimate evil of baseball: Reality and fantasy respectively and interchangably. Confused? You should be. Coover's last chapter (8 - somehow conjuring the idea that it is, and therefore baseball is, incomplete) muddles, mangles, and meshes reality and fiction with fiction, turning baseball into "what it is": history, mythology, mind-altering, obsession, and finally an unrecognizable conglomoration of rituals and ritual-hungry beasts. For all the profundity and confundity of chapter 8, Coover's vision of baseball is undeniably chilling: A reflection of the social atmosphere out of which the novel came. If 1968 is not the most exultant yet the most shattering years of the civil rights movement, then baseball is only a game.

One of the best Young-Adult novels I've ever read

The House of Stairs - book cover picture

This is a book I read in my youth, it stayed in my thoughts from then on. I've since read it a dozen times and have obtained a copy for my daughter to read when she's ready. The vey adult theme of this book, combined with writing supremely accessible to a young reader, helped me to realize the power the written word contains. In short, a very powerful cautionary tale. Wouldn't mind discussing this with others.

my mother recommended this book to me at the beginning of 8th grade, and at first i was hesitant to read it due to its size. i finished it wishing it would be longer! the experiences marjorie has are extremely interesting, and she is an amazing and inspiring character. her relationships are particularly fun, and full of surprises. i will never love a book as much as i love this one, and ever since i've had trouble enjoying what i read. this book truly had an impact on me, and i'll never be the same. readers will treasure it for years to come.

The Four-Story Mistake (Melendy Family) - book cover picture

Having discovered this book completely by accident, I had no idea how good it was. The old house that the title refers to is essentially another character in the book, which makes the story that much more evocative of times past. What is also really great about this book is the way it focusses on both the home life (as opposed to school life) of the children and the way minor characters can suddenly come to the fore, full of life. Reading the first chapter aloud to my kids, I felt a sort of mental high that I seldom experience with either adult or kids' books. Need I say more?
