I can't believe that some people actually disliked this book. It's by far the best book I've read for over a year(apart from Day of the Triffids which I subsequently read because of my new fascination with John Wyndham). It seems that school children who've been forced to read it dislike it. But I would definitely recommend it to adult readers. It's not often that a book is so gripping that you become part of the story.

Blackjack Bluebook II: the simplest winning strategies ever published - book cover picture

We had planned to go to Pensacola Beach and pass by the casino in Biloxi, MS this Labor Day weekend (9/1/03). I didn't know the game much so I decided to buy it on Amazon after reading the 3 earlier reviewers. We did pass by the casino as planned but our original plan didn't work out right; so we arrived very late. I played the game and I won $162 (after $8 tips) after 50 minutes on a $10 bet. It was about 2 am and my whole family was waiting for me so I have to leave. But I'm planning to go to Las Vegas this December. Of course, not just gamble but to also have fun since I have never been there before.With the knowledge from the book, I felt very confident while playing the game. The book is easy to understand and very well written. Plus I was very good in math in high school and in college, so I understood the probability concept easily. It's a must have if you are going to play blackjack at the casino.

Charming Billy - book cover picture

I can only imagine that those who found this book "boring" are accostomed to something with more plot. By that standard it's true: not much happens. Just life. This book spoke to me on so many levels: as an Irish-American, as a wife, as a daughter, as a mother, as an American! To me, it is a true mark of talent when a writer can take a story in which not much happens in the way of drama and make it impossible to put down.

Demon in My View (Laurel-Leaf Books) - book cover picture

Having been totally blown away by IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT last year, I was hoping to see more of thisn talented young writer's work soon. I saw DEMON IN MY VIEW at the bookstoe the other day and lunged for it! And I was NOT disappointed! Amelia gives us equal portions of action and horror that smack of Anne Rice, BUFFY, FOREVER KNIGHT and VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, yet are uniquely her own inventions. I will definitely be on the edge of my coffin waiting for the NEXT Amelia Atwater-Rhodes epic!

Bully : Does Anyone Deserve to Die? - book cover picture

This is the second time I've read this book. It is all too wild, the things these people do. I am 22 myself and find it impossible to think the way they do. A horrific murder, but humorous plan. They viciously kill a man, their "friend", and seem to see no harm in doing so. The author finds a kind of pity for, or kindship in the killers. The description of Bobby and lack of photo (other than his dead body) is disappointing. And beside making Marty & Lisa appear as "Romeo & Juliet"-like characters, the book is absolutely amazing. The hell they go through and create. Descriptive and stunning. An absolute MUST READ.

This book has holes

Book title: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - book cover picture

The genius of this book is the holes. Kids love to stick their fingers in them, or to peer through to the next page ... and to the delight of the parent the holes don't tear or fall off like so many of the doodads in kid's books. This gluttonous caterpillar is an IDEAL choice for a board book.It's also a cute story that makes children laugh. The Amazon reviews here spoil the plot :-) but really it is a colorful and fun book -- with holes -- and a theme of transformation, that the grown-up can bear reading over and over and over. I wish only that Carle's other books were as good.

Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation! - book cover picture

Michael Moore is one of the few people who comes from working class roots, and continues, even in his current wealth, to support and engage the normal working class. This is not communist trash anymore than supporting George W is patriotic. He is funny as hell, and anyone who has the intelligence, resources and gall to [anger] the right wing ideologs and the do-nothings in the government deserves your money.

Finder: A Novel of the Borderlands - book cover picture

I read Finder a long time ago. seems like eons but I always loved the book and what Borderland books I could get my hands on. I love the idea of a city/country that borders on the realm of Faerie and "The World"
Orient is a strong character, a dreamer with a huge heart.

The Seven Songs of Merlin (Lost Years of Merlin) - book cover picture

After the Great Council selects Merlin to carry the flowering harp to restore life and nature to the lands of Fincayra, Merlin decides to bring his mother to Fincayra, as well. The evil Rita Gawr sends down a curse that reaches Merlin's mother instead of Merlin. To save her, Merlin must master the souls of the Seven Songs of wizardry. He must then enter the Otherworld Well, which is guarded by an ogre with a single eye, an orb that brings death to all those who look into it.The Seven Songs of Merlin was the March selection for the local library's teen book club, and I neglected it until just days before our meeting, although after I reached page ten, I was hooked. So far, T.A. Barron's Merlin series is entrancing and suspenseful.~ JFS

The Best Sandford Novel Ever

Book title: Winter Prey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Winter Prey - book cover picture

This was the greatest effort, in my opinion, offered by Sandford's portrayal of tough cop, Lucas Davenport. The setting is in Wisconsin during the winter with temperatures at sub-zero levels. He, along with the Sherrif's department in the county, are on the prowl for a cold-blooded killer nicknamed, "The Iceman." What separated this book from the others was that the ending was very much a surprise. Unlike other Davenport novels, we usually know the killer in the beginning but in this one, we can only guess until he is revealed at the very end. A great nail-biting thriller.
