The Namesake: A Novel - book cover picture

The initial bit about Gogol growing up in America with his American lifestyle and outlook in life in stark contrast to his parent's inherent traditionalism can be identified with by a lot of NRI kids. I think it's something we've all gone through and a very well-written story that brings that to mind is extremely moving. I guess it is only fitting that I give the book a perfect 5! Definately a great read!

I Heard the Owl Call My Name - book cover picture

I reviewed this book as part of a book group. A resoundingnumber of us loved this beautiful, simple tale. Personally I believeit is a classic. It is written in the style of a myth - short, simpleconstruction with generally only one verb per sentence. This reflects perfectly the pace of life amongst the Kwakiutl, the sense of inevitability and acceptance as one moment flows into the next. This is a beautiful novel for anyone who has a life threatening illness or knows someone who is dying and is an uplifting reminder of what it is to truly live as a human being.

Swing, Swing, Swing: The Life & Times of Benny Goodman - book cover picture

my interest in goodman was sparked by the ken burns documentary series on jazz, and firestone's biography really filled the bill for me. i've read other biographies of great jazz figures since, but none of them come close to this one. great not only for information about goodman but about the entire swing era and its decline. goodman had his negative points, as firestone points out, but ultimately he was a triumphant and inspiring figure.

Safe People - book cover picture

I work as a lay counselor at our church. This book is wonderfully written and will be a tremendous resource for our library. I am so grateful to Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend for the taking the time to write such helpful information. Their book Boundries has already become very popular and I am sure this one will as well. Practical, real and honest, they deal with matters of the heart that often trip so many of us up. It's scriptural, loving and holds up a mirror so we can see ourselves. A very useful thing indeed!

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - book cover picture

I had to read this book for my sociology class (Soc.275,Marriage and Family). This book was really enlightening and it makes you realize what's important in life. It changes your whole perspective on life and the things you take for granted. It also shows us how we shouldn't stress too much over the petty stuff that happens. It also humbles you because you realize that there's a bigger picture: It's not so much "your life" but life period. The only thing I regret is that this wasn't on my required reading list for high school.

Seductive Poison - book cover picture

Family secrets can be deadly as Layton's book attests. More importantly however, is Deborah's determination to BREAK THE SILENCE for the sake of her infant girl. Seductive Poison is a gripping, honest and exceptionally moving book of the life and times of the Layton family. It also graphically shows how the secrets of their Jewish mother set two of the youngest children up to join the black and white world of Jim Jones and his horrific deceit.

Hey! when i finished this book the first words that came out of my mouth were "wow." The first sentence of this book had me amazed by the book..."Be careful who you trust." This book was a fun filled white nuckle thrilling book. I loved it each step of the way. Darren was an ordinary boy until he met Mr. Crepsley who showed him into the world of vampires.

He ran from this penalty and found that his own friend had betrayed him, killing his dear friend and ally Gavner Purl. Darren proves himself to the vampire princes and tells them about the stories he has witnessed they except his noblness and bravery. Read on to find how Darren works his way up to the top of the vampire counsil.

One of the Two books I have read over and over....


Book title: The Golden Road (Bantam Classic)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Golden Road (Bantam Classic) - book cover picture

The Golden Road and its prequel, The Story Girl, are two of the best books I have ever read. I never seem to get tired of them, either...I have read them countless times! If you enjoy L. M. Montgomery's novels, such as the Anne of Green Gables series, these books are a must. The Golden Road tells the story of cousins, Beverley (who narrates the story), Felix, Cecily, Felicity, Dan, and Sara Stanley, also known as the Story Girl, plus their friends Peter, the hired boy, and Sara Ray. The adventures these eight have are sometimes exiting, sometimes sad...but mostly really funny! For instance, one time, they have the governors wife to tea...but they think she's their deaf Aunt Eliza and comment on the governors big nose and such things! And Felicity accidentally bakes tooth-powder rusks...oh, I can't tell you the whole book! Read it for yourself!

I had read Ms. Berg's first trilogy ("Transformation" series) and loved it. As a result, I was looking forward to reading this new one. I definitely was not disapointed! I started it about 3 in the afternoon and finished it that same day (11:00 p.m.) !! I can hardley wait for the next one in the series. I just wish that the publishing world moved faster!! Thank- you Carol for another great book!!

This book has been such a comfort...God bless the author!

Cat Heaven - book cover picture

When I realized that Pepper, my beloved cat of 16 years, was nearing the end of his life, I ordered this book. It arrived at noon, and little Pepper died in my arms at 4:00. After taking care of his burial, I came home and read this book. I cannot adequately express the great comfort I received while reading this book through my tears. The simple yet eloquent poem, the wonderful pictures, and the joy I took in finding a picture that looked just like Pepper brought me tremendous peace. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If you are currently facing the prospect of losing your animal companion, or if you have recently experienced this loss, PLEASE do something kind for yourself and read this book. ("Dog Heaven" by the same author is just as wonderful for dog owners.)
