Violence and Redemption


Book title: A Clockwork Orange
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Clockwork Orange - book cover picture

In this highly original, graphic, and powerful book, Anthony Burgess, endows his main character, Alex, with a futuristic slang, in which Russian words play a major role...Alex's first person narrative flows so smoothly and naturally that, oh my brothers, I really felt the horror that comes from realizing just how natural violence is to us...Alex undergoes a moral transformations, in the chapter that was originally omitted when the book was published in the U.S. Ultimately, moral transformation can come only from within. And the possibility of this transformation is a redeeming element for Alex--and for human nature in general.Russian is my native language, so the book flowed fairly easily for me after just a few pages. But beware that this new addition has no glossary. If you do not know Russian, it may take a little longer to get into this book. But it is very much worth the effort.

Archangel (Samaria Trilogy, Book 1) - book cover picture

I read this book in two days; it has been many years since
such a thing occurred in my life. I had even despaired that there were no more good tales out there to be told. This is most assuredly one of them.

The melding of angel & mortal, in the face of faith versus unbelief, lifted my spirits. The characters were so real to me, I was near to tears by the end of the book. I did not want to leave them; they had become as real to me as true friends. The story is one of adventure & betrayal & eventually right overcoming wrong. But along the way, like any good story, there is much to be seen & tasted & felt.

I look forward to "Jovah's Angel" with great anticipation!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) - book cover picture

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I mean, it is no Order of the Phoenix, but I'll take it! It is nice to finally have the backstory I have been waiting for.

I love how the kids have grown up and become young adults. The transformations in personalities and maturity are portrayed wonderfully. JK Rowling has such a talent for storytelling, and she has an imagination that amazes me.

Thank you JK, your books are truly gifts to be treasured.

Wonderful!

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Rabbit Is Rich - book cover picture

This is the first Rabbit and first Updike novel I read. I am now a huge fan of both.

The suburban imagery, the sexually-obsessed thoughts, the confinement of marriage, the grass-is-greener over there beliefs, and the realities of material-obsessed America are so well crafted by Updike that you really believe that you have come to know Rabbit and America in the 1970s-1980s inside and out. Rabbit's pathetic, genuine, scared, and confident - he is a true "Everyman."

Though raunchy as hell at times (and I mean, raunchy), this book is an absolute prize for anyone who lived in a Northeast suburb either as an adult or child.

Captivating literary soap opera!

Leopard in the Sun - book cover picture

One can't help but feel saddened at the feud between the Barragans and the Monsalves, which is the premise of this story. The characters are colorful and emotionally riveting... you actually feel sorry for Mani, who has to choose between loyalty to a long-held traditiion or the wishes of his expectant wife. I think Laura Restrepo is one of the most talented writers of our generation, and she is able to weave fact and fiction, fantasy and reality into an incredible tale of lust, greed, vengeance and filial duty. Utterly amazing story!

Empirian Book Club says "A Heart Pounder!"

G-Spot : An urban erotic tale by Noire - book cover picture

A book that is exciting! It's not the same boring love story and everything didn't work out to be peachy keen. Real things happened in this book and it was just a breath of fresh air to read something with this much reality in it. This book is not for someone who is against sex, violence and drugs. All of that exists in this book. I'm not going to spoil the plot but I will say it will have your heart pounding out of your chest for the characters. Reserve 24 hours of your time because that's all you're going to need to read this book. I hope to see a sequel. Good job..............Zane?

could't put it down--makes you think


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

This book is extremely well written, developing a set of usually appealing and always memorable characters and their families, all of whom are, one way or another, involved in the CIA, and situating them throughout the world at different times from post war Berlin through to the present day, in Afghanistan. Historical figures are incorporated into the story to give it texture and heighten the drama. Apart from all this, the book also educates the reader and makes for serious thinking, inasmuch as the cold war incidents described occurred when most of us were simply too young to experience them. The questions implicitly raised about what happened behind the scenes are fascinating. If you like Le Carre, Furth or others in the spy genre, this book is a must read!

The Psychology of Winning - book cover picture

A confessed self help junkie, I think this is the best self help book I have read thus far. Although I wouldn't go as far as Mr. Perez because Im sure there are countless people with wonderful lives and plenty of self esteem who have never read this book, it is the best five dollars I have ever spent! I feel very strongly about the power of self and its good to read that Im not the only one. Get it now!

The Courage to Fail: Art Mortell's Secrets for Business Success - book cover picture

As founder of "Traderscoach.com" I thought this book provided the reader with a realistic view of taking risks in life and how you should view failure as nothing more than a stepping stone to eventual success.I saw Art Mortell speak live when I was at Prudential Securities, Inc. seminar in La Jolla, California. He was outstanding and very motivating.Basically you are not a failure until you give up and that sums it up as far as I am concerned.Whether you apply this approach to selling or trading the financial markets, you will learn alot about what is necessary to be a consistant winner.Fell FREE to visit our Web-site "Traderscoach.com" which deals with Trading Psycology as well as other material realted to trading. We currently recommend his book.

A beautiful book


Book title: Magic Beach (Paperark)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Magic Beach (Paperark) - book cover picture

This book is a favourite of both me and my two year old son. The beautiful, detailed pictures capture the essence of summer and the magic of being a child, when any activity can be transformed by imagination into something more. Many aspects of beach life are shown, from playing in the surf, to wading in rockpools, to a moonlight bonfire. The verse flows well and complements the pictures, although I would agree with the previous reviewer that the illustrations are the highlight. I love all of Alison Lester's books, but I would rate this one as the best.
