A Very Long Engagement : A Novel - book cover picture

Just finished reading "A Very Long Engagement" and boy-o-boy was it good! Five soldiers are sentenced to be killed for desertion. One (maybe) survives. But which one? Ah... therein lies the mystery.Beautifully translated, "A Very Long Engagement" succeeds on every level. It's super romantic, clever/funny, and a damn good mystery. The ending is entirely satisfying. The characters are multi-faceted and the story flows along smoothly. One of the best books I've read in a long, long while.

Never Buried (Leigh Koslow Mystery, 1) - book cover picture

Just finished reading this mystery and went on-line to see if there is a sequel. Leigh is a good natured person who agrees to assist her pregnant cousin and ends up with a long-dead body in the garden. The twists and turns of the plot are intriguing. The characters are interesting but I found her cousin (Cara) too self-centered despite her medical problems. Cara's husband was also rude and ungrateful. I found that a bit annoying. However, I enjoyed the rest of the characters and hope Leigh finds some romance in the future. I look forward to more of her adventures.

This Book Is A Must Read!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

If you haven't read this book yet, you are in for a treat! Come into the magical world of witchcraft and wizardry and you'll be left wanting more. Maybe sending and letter with you owl to Harry? Why did this book get banned? A really pointless thing to do. If you think this book goes against Christian beliefs you better check your prospectives. Just because the people in these books practice magic, doesn't mean maybe the author is thinking that they are or are not Christian. This book teaches strong bonds, like, how, even in a competition, staying true to your beliefs and friends is a very good thing to do. This book was wonderful, a very compelling read. After I finished it I was left saying "Is that it?". I certainly hope J.K. Rowling writes more after Harry gets out of Hogwarts, about his career. Was anybody else dissapointed that there were no quidditch matches this year?

Another laugh-out-loud Stephanie Plum adventure

Four to Score (A Stephanie Plum Novel) - book cover picture

Needless to say, if you've already read the first three Janet Evanovich books then you're going to read this installment without hesitation.It's an easy read with moments of sheer madness that will have you laughing out loud. Over the top characters appear to have nothing in common but, as always, all the characters are connected in some way that only becomes clear towards the end of the novel.All in all a worthy fourth installment, roll on the fifth.

The Long Ships: A Saga of the Viking Age - book cover picture

I'd never heard of this book till a Swedish friend gave it to me recently. So I was surprised to see from the Amazon reviews what a devoted readership it has. I agree with you all -- it's a great book.My suggestion for those who are trying to get a copy: visit Stockholm! It's readily available there in paperback in English translation -- still with the awful cover many of you commented on (I was almost embarrassed to read it in the tram on the way to and from work...).

One of my favorite books

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

I have a few books that I always return to and The Thorn birds is one of those. It is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest love stories of all ages, one that could stand the comparison with the love story of Romeo and Juliette or Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot... Every time I read it, I discovered something new. The characters are complex, true. It is a story about love and fate. A beautiful love story and so a sad one. Because the best can be reached only by a great suffering... or so says the legend of The Thorn birds.

Not Sugar Coated-Its Real Life

Running with Scissors - book cover picture

No this book is not sugar coated, and yes, some of the scenes in the book are graphic. but, in my opinion the book is suppose to be this way so that you can get the whole effect of what this author has been through in his life, what led him in to some of the things he did and the courage he had to overcome.
I say "Running With Scissors" is a highly ranked book like other emotional-pwer packed books such as Dry, Paper Life and Nightmares Echo

The best way to wonder "What if I did it this way?"

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

I don't know where to start concerning how this book has affected me. Probably the best compliment I can offer is this is one of the handful of books I read once a year, and I have been doing that for this book for six years. It never gets tired, old, redundant, whatever. Perhaps treating the book that way parallels what Jeff, the protagonist, goes through.How magnificent would it be to relive your life, from 18 years old to 43? Not travelling by machine, but through your conscious mind, knowing what you know, and trying to turn it to your advantage. What could possibly go wrong? Read.The theme of the book, not wasting the time we have, is universal and comes through here very poignantly, practically to the point of wanting to call the ones who mean the most to you and tell them how much so. Skeptical? Read.Buy it, read it, and learn from it.

It's not just about pianos

The Piano Shop on the Left Bank: Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier - book cover picture

Yes, of course this little book is a love letter to the piano. But it lives because of the people who share their lives with the instrument: an itinerant piano tuner, a self-deprecating entrepreneur, an accompanist, a teacher, and a hair-raising piano mover. It is also a love letter to Paris from a man who achieved the dream of many Americans to live and be at home in that wonderful, maddening city.I hope this book will be the first of many from this author, he writes with elegance.

Ophelia Speaks : Adolescent Girls Write About Their Search for Self - book cover picture

It's about time! Why is it that men and women who grew up in a different era think they know what's going on with us today? The problems of thirty years ago are not the same problems of today. We teenage girls face a lot more serious issues than we used to. I am so very proud of those girls for telling the truth and enlightening all of us. I've grown up with a very sheltered lifestyle, but even I can relate and learn from what these girls are telling everyone. This book is full of true stories involving abuse, eating disorders, dating, rape and many more things a teenage girl must face. This might just be me, but whenever I see people trying to analize the female population to see what makes them tick and to try and figure out why we do what we do, I just want to throw up. No one has the right to decide what we are feeling unless they themselves have gone through it. If you wish to know why we're so messed up, ask us.
