A Treasury of Royal Scandals : The Shocking True Stories History's Wickedest Weirdest MostWanton Kings Queens - book cover picture

I would loved to have known a few of these stories in high school! I loved this book, read it in about 3 hours, and am looking forwward to the next book. I was upset when I got to the end. I thought it was extremely interesting that there were so many evil popes in our history. It's amazing to me that Catholicism is still alive today! I love the author's writing style, it kept me chuckling and snickering throughout the book. He gives great detail to the appearance of some of the royalty, so much that I kept picturing obese old men with open festering sores all night. Thanks Michael! :)

The Secret Language of Eating Disorders : How You Can Understand and Work to Cure Anorexia and Bulimia (Vintage) - book cover picture

I have lived with an eating disorder for 18 years. Now, at the age of 27, I finally believe I am not so crazy - thanks to Peggy's book. My only disappointment is that there are not more clinics like hers. Her approach needs to be taught more widespread to help more people. I am also a massage therapist and wish someday to work with others with eating disorders. But, I think I need to overcome my own first.. I am looking to get in touch with Peggy. If she has an e-mail address I would really appreciate it. Pamela

Living Great: Style Expert and Television Star Linda Dano Shows You How to Bring Style Home With Her Easy, Affordable Decorating Ideas and Techniques - book cover picture

I believe this book is very useful. We are looking for our first house now, so I've gone through a great amount of decorating books and magazines, and I was quite naive thinking that I know the subject pretty well. I was so mistaken! It's turned out I had no idea about basic principles of home decorating (though my friends find my home very cozy, yes, they really do!). I could never imagine before, that a book with few illustrations (but rich and great looking) may be so useful. But it isn't illustrations that count. This book is a must to read before you'll take any other book filled with pictures, because it tells you what's behind the scene and instead of copying someone's else idea, it teaches you to create you own. Also, it's written with a great style and humor, very easy and interesting to read (I even put away my detective story!)

I loved this book. The characters and story are great, but what really made me like this book is the incredible background and locales Ben Bova creates. The intricacies of world government and corporate power are ultimately the main focus of this book. He unfolds things with good timing. The locales we see are awesome. A huge paradise inside a cylinder in outer space to a decrepit New York run by gangs and avoided by the military, dangerous streets of the middle east, a South American jungle. It was a fun journey, and I'm glad I decided to pick this book up.

The Reason I Want To Be A Ranger

Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War - book cover picture

Bowden does an exceptional job in portraying the story of the men who fought and died in Africa in 1993. His success as a newspaper journalist can be seen in this gripping epic of struggle and brotherhood. Bowden grappled with the telling of a story that not many people knew about, until the recent motion picture came about. In my opinion, Bowden did a tremendous service to the men of the Task Force Rangers and the Delta Force through the telling of this story. I know as a historical writer, Bowden was seeking objectivity. I think he achieved this goal. While we sat and watched the events unfold on CNN, many of us didn't think about the soldiers perspective. Complete a mission. The bonds of brotherhood are touching and the level of professionalism is suprising. And Bowden does illustrate the fact that even though we are the most advanced military power on the earth, we are still human, and humans error now and then. Bless our armed forces, and thank you Mr. Bowden.

Though Criticized, Diamond Age is still a gem

DIAMOND AGE, THE (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

Crtics of this book, most notably Kirkus Reviews, have cited the "vainglorius" style and labyrnithine plot as negative aspects of an otherwise compelling book. I would describe them rather as assets; I found the style flexible and usually appropriate, both reflecting the sensibilities of the Neo-Victorian protagonists of the novel and providing the reader with gorgeous imagery and metaphor. The plot, though complex and ambigous, is compelling; as Constable Moore says to Nell towards the end of the tale, the ability to deal with this ambivalence is a mark of intelligence. Must the author do everything for us? I think that the open ended, freely interpretable nature of this book is one of its greatest strengths.

Ramona the Pest (rpkg) (Ramona Quimby (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Ramona Quimby is one of the most annoying kids you will ever meet. She's constantly running around, and older kids see it as annoying, when really she just wants everything to happen quickly. In this book, Ramona is entering kindergarten. The problem is is that it's not all fun and games. Ramona likes singing, playing with her doll Chevrolet, and pulling snobby Susan's hair, but that's it. Then Ramona becomes upset when something (I won't tell you what) happens at school, and Ramona drops out. This is an excellent book, and any fan of Ramona should read this.

This book was refreshing... just the gift to give to each of my daughters, to share what is important in life. I was shocked by those who gave harsh reviews, but I realize that these are the folks who need this book the most. Unfortunately, a hard shell often prevents absorbtion of quality material. Go Anna! If you only influence a handful of folks to choose the optimistic, kind, caring, thankful route in life you have succeeded in doing something beautiful! Almost everyone at the library where I work has purchased a copy for their daughter(s).

Holes the book version

Book title: Holes (Readers Circle)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Holes (Readers Circle) - book cover picture

The book I'm reviewing is Holes written by Louis Sachar. I think it deserves five stars because it's an awesome book. It's about Stanley Yelnats, a boy who's under a curse. Stanley Yelnats gets accused of stealing an athlete's shoes. Stanley gets sent to Camp Green Lake. Camp Green Lake makes boys dig holes to build character, but the warden is really looking for something else. If you read and pay attention to the book, you might find out what they are looking for. I would recommend Holes to a friend.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

This book changed my life and the way I look at relationships. It makes one appreciate the complexity of the human spirit and the struggles, baggage and history that people often bring into relationships. This is the type of book that you never want to finish, one of few books that you actually plan to read again even before you are finished, one of the few books that leaves you emotionally exposed but which you still recommend to friends despite the fact that within the pages of the book they may find you- problems, fallacies and all. It makes you humble and realise that it is simply not always about you.!
