A Sight for Sore Eyes - book cover picture

This book is disturbing, so be prepared. Not as disturbing as A Demon In My View (if you haven't read that one, think about it, as Rendell at her very best), I don't think a book could be more disturbing than that one, but both take you inside the world of psychopaths and those whose lives they cross (and the why and how they cross is fascinating.) I've had this book on hand for a while, and just started to read it this weekend. It's been in my hands for most of the weekend, as I couldn't put it down. I reached page 346, close to the end and could barely keep my eyes open but had to know what happened, when I found the pages abrubtly ended midsentence! The end was missing. Well, you can imagine how unsatisfied this reader is! How does it end? I have to wait to see. Check your pages when you get the book (and others by this publisher) to make sure they are all there. I'm ordering copy #2, but the waiting to see how this one ends won't be easy.

Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books) - book cover picture

The book "Green Eggs and Ham" was a good book. It was about a guy named Sam who didn?t want to eat any eggs or ham, no matter how hard his friend tried to get him to eat some, because they were green. It teaches a good lesson about how some things aren?t as bad as they seem. This is an important lesson for kids to learn. The age level is better for younger kids like 1st through 3rd. I think this book was a good book that even I enjoyed.

The cutting edge of doing philosophy

Post-Secular Philosophy: Between Philosophy and Theology - book cover picture

The conversation between philosophy and theology has at long last been rejoined after centuries of animosity and slander with theology being mostly on the receiving end. This tentative rejoining has grown out of necessity; for, as Blond's excellent introduction makes plain, secularist philosophy has bequeathed to us a world of bloody discontinuities which threatens to choke us. This volume is an exciting first salvo across the bow of a bankrupt secularism whose contemporary devotees are stewing in their own juices, and whose stammerings are nothing more than desperate cries for help. The book also opens up exciting and lively new areas of philosophical reflection, and it certainly is a welcome beginning at overcoming modern philosophical parochialism.

A real gem of a book

Programming .NET Components, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

After a very long time I have come across a book that is really fabulous. Most of the programming books are too bulky and they waste all the pages in explaining only the documentation rather than the architecture. Most of this documentaion can be obtained on the web. This book explains the principles and the architecture behind all the commonly used .net concepts. I highly recommend this book. However, do not buy this book if you are planning to learn .net and have never used it before. This book caters to programmers who have had at least some programming experience in .net previously.

better to stand alone in a monolingual edition

Holderlin: Selected Poems and Fragments (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

The translations produced by Mr. Hamburger, himself a poet, reads very well indeed. But should they be used in such bilingual edition as this one, being not very literal? In 'Dichterberuf'('The Poet's Vocation'), the 12th stanza reads:'Zu lang ist Gottliche dienstbar schon/ Und alle Himmelskrafte verscherzt, verbracht/ Die Gutigen, zur Lust, danklos, ein/ Schlaues Geschlecht und zu kennen wahnt es,' and the translation:'Too long now things divine have been cheaply used/ And all the powers of heaven, the kindly, spent/ In trifling waste by cold and cunning/ Men without thanks, who when he, the Hightest,'. We can see that the translator use the alliteration of 'cold' and 'cunning'(only 'Schlaues' in the original) to compensate that of 'verscherzt' and 'verbracht' (only 'spent' in the translation). We can understand why the previous reviewer says the translations are often surprising(and why I says they are not very literal).

Palace Walk - book cover picture

my first language is arabic thats why i read the the triogly in arabic.i remeber the first time to read it was when i was 16 years old .i loved it so much and read it once again when i was 20 .i think it refects the exact picture of people in egypt from the begining of the centuary till the 1950 but it also contains some wrong ideas about egyptian and made a sterotype of them in the "saied ahmaed abel guaid" character we are totaly different from this picture .actually egptian usually call some one "se saied" to show that he is strict at home.i think nowdays here in egypt women are "se saied" and men can not refuse any demand of them.

BULLSEYE!

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

Michael Moore has one bad habit: Telling the truth in plain English. He is hated by conservatives and their apologists for his in your face delivery of the facts. If his footnotes were put to the test, they would pass...Anyway, the one "sorry" state of this nation is the emphasis on "infotainment." I love how, in the beginning of the book, Michael states that he was watching grown men audition for a sports quiz show asking each other little (useless) bits of sports trivia. I agree with Michael: That's a sad commentary on this society when people know the stats from 1943 of a baseball player yet they don't know who their representatives are.Michael, like Gore Vidal, touches raw nerves and I say if more people acted like him, we wouldn't be in the current mess we're in.

Sandra And The Scoundrel (Harlequin Love & Laughter, No 32) - book cover picture

This was not the book I expected it to be, but it worked anyway. A carefree wealthy L.A. socialite widow ends up living in a run-down apartment near Orange County and Palm Springs. She ends up "married" to her rich dead husband's estranged son and spends her days babysitting his two adorable kids. The goal: to reclaim her stolen fortune from a swindling lawyer with a penchant for gangster movies. Such a story is too bizarre! But it still works in an engaging way.A charming tale, as Harlequin romances go. As a native of the area, I enjoyed the book's descriptions of Southern California.

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

A friend encouraged me to read this book. It took me a few weeks before I got a hold of it. Mr.Lamb has done an exceptional job of portraying the lonely,miserable,confused Delores. There have many situations in my own life that I have exprienced that were similar to the character's. I found myself crying for her, frustrated with her, and times even disgusted, finally at the end I found myself cheering for her. Ever since I read this book I have been recommending it to every female I know and I always find myself saying "I still can't believe a man wrote this!"

Best Chinese Cookbook!

Chinese Cook Book - book cover picture

I've got a lot of Chinese cookbooks and most of them gather dust on my shelf. This is the one I use over and over. In fact, I'm replacing my original copy because I've worn it out. The recipes are fantastic, the tips on how to prepare ingredients are priceless, and many of the sauces and techniques can be adapted for other uses. This book helped me go beyond its recipes and start creating my own. P.S. I heartily recommend the scallion pancakes.
