Whatever You Want It To Be

Heart of Darkness - book cover picture

Heart of Darkness is a masterpiece. Joseph Conrad's story of British imperialism in the Congo is eerily, brilliant, and thoughtful, to sum it up in a few words. Symbolism, imagery, and ambiguity in the novel allows readers to fathom what evil, darkness, and good really is. And most people don't really understand that. . .Although Heart of Darkness is a little over 100 pages, its a thick read if readers wish it to be. If not, people can whiz through it in a couple hours. Yet, its a masterpiece for it depth, not its length.I encourage anyone who wishes to read a deep novel to pick up a copy of Heart of Darkness. Its writing is amazing, the story is intriguing, and the afterthought will remain with you for a long time. For those who don't want to read a book, watch Apocalypse Now, the Americanized version (American "imperialism" in Viet Nam, spreading democracy).

The Greatest book I have ever read.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X : As Told to Alex Haley - book cover picture

Malcolm X was known to be a very violent man, from what I have learned from my history teachers. But after reading this book I have a whole new respect for Malcolm X. Unlike other activists who are portrayed better, Malcolm X both has the good and bad parts about his life. The Autobiography of Malcolm X goes in depth of what it was like for him growing up in a white nation and how he helped changed the lives of not only the black community but every other ethnicity in the United States today. I highly reccommend this book for anyone who is willing to hear what it's like in the life of Malcolm X.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) - book cover picture

As if you haven't already!!! If you are like me and are here to read if others felt as you do about it, then we can be sad people together. But sad people with good taste in books. My favourite characters in this series are Severus and Remus, they are both tragic unfortunates. Prisoner of Azkaban is a clever book with flowing writing, excellent structure and an overall intriguing story. But don't take my word for it. If you haven't read it, then you must do so immediately. If you already have- read it again!

Still the BEST cookbook on the market

Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook: The Original 1950 Classic (Betty Crocker) - book cover picture

Unlike a poodle skirt, here is one thing from the 50's that will never go out of style.

I grew up helping my mom cook from her copy of the original. For my wedding, she gave me a newer version. I was so disappointed in that "modern" version - everything was made with a can of this and a box of that. I quickly got rid of the modern one and eventually ended up with Mom's original book. Now I am buying one for my son who is setting up his own household. I have a collection of cookbooks, many of which are great books...but if I could only have one cookbook...this would be it!! Ok, so it is not whatever-free like many of us eat today. It is still be best basic cookbook on the market. The best thing is that it is all from scratch cooking.

haunting novel

Book title: Bel Canto
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Bel Canto - book cover picture

As soon as I finished reading this novel, I started again from the beginning. I think that the people writing negative reviews are probably not familiar with magical realism, a Latin American style adopted by Patchett for this novel set in South America. There is an excerpt from a review on the back cover that really says why this book is so wonderful: "the impulses toward beauty and love are shown to be as irrepressible as the instincts for violence and destruction." Too much fiction is written about the human heart of darkness. Patchett succeeds remarkably well in exploring human goodness. This book, if you understand the purpose, and understand the style, is a wonderful experience. I would recommend it for college students that are tired of reading about how terrible human beings really are. After a semester of Hobbes, Dazai, Kafka, and Conrad, this was the refutation that I wanted.

Stunning insight into how Stalin's USSR really worked

An American Engineer in Stalin's Russia: The Memoirs of Zara Witkin, 1932-1934 - book cover picture

Anyone who wants to know how the economy of Stalin's USSR really worked has to read this book. Forget the talk of five-year plans, the controlled economy, Stakhanovites and anything which might suggest the economy ran on organised lines. Witkin spells out with fascinating clarity the extraordinary extent to which anarchy ruled and is especially good on the back-stabbing venal managers who were so keen to promote their own interests that they did huge damage to the enterprises where they worked. The flowery passages on Witkin's unhappy love life are less interesting but do not really detract from the power of the work as a whole. Michael Gelb deserves a reward for uncovering such a crucial memoir.

Elegant and Complex

The Club Dumas - book cover picture

This is one of the great ones! Its treatment of the interplay between fiction and the stories we construct with our lives is both elegant and complex. It is delightful too, to know that only a select audience can savor the intricacies of the plot. You must have the intimate knowledge of fiction which comes of love. The author never resorts to cheap tricks either, the novel satisfies from cover to cover.

Cultural Experience

Book title: Underworld
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Underworld - book cover picture

After reading Underworld, I felt as if I had just participated in a major cultural experience-the culmination of the sacred and profane in post-W.W.II life. What makes this book a great book is, unlike Ulysses in which more people say they read it than actually do (I did), its accessiblity. The landscape it portyrays is available and recognizable to anyone with a college reading level (in my opinon). The simple fact that Delillo does this without and "tricks" shows what a fantastic writer he is.I am a great fan of Libra, and I feel that in many ways Delillo brings together a lot of the magnitude and lyrical qualities of Libra with the wackiness/irony thats in White Noise.I'm just wondering what he could possibly come up with next? Anyway, for those who want the book to be "about" something, here's what I have to offer: the novel is about impermenance.
