Deryni Rising (Chronicles of the Deryni) - book cover picture

I have had very limited experience reading fantasy novels. I chose this one on the recommendation of a friend who reads mostly such books. I began it expecting it to be one of those things where the names and cities are so hard to pronounce I would want to toss it immediately. It is not that way. It is written so well and so real that you can imagine it happening here. The writing is beautiful and absorbing and the story is like nothing I have ever read. Very unique in my opinion. The characters have depth and you care about them and the villains are horrid. Excellent book, especially for someone new to fantasy and fit for younger readers, too. I cannot wait to read the others in the series.

Confederacy of Dunces - book cover picture

I have read this book 5 times now. I live in New Orleans and find this to be a truth to what this city is truly like. I laugh out loud at Ignatious! And, if you can believe it, New Orleans built a statue in dedication of him. HAHA! It's actually a true story. The writer committed suicide after finishing it. His mother found the transcripts underneath his bed and published it. If you want a good description of New Orleans with a twist you have to read this! It's execelent!

Literature Guide: Out of the Dust (Grades 4-8) - book cover picture

Out of the Dust was an exteremly good book. It was about a 13 year old girl who went through a tremendous amount of pain. Billie Jo's mother dies from just a big accident. Billie places the blame squarely upon her own shoulders. Billie Jo was also in the accident and has become scarred for life. She is unable to do the only thing she truly loved doing, playing the piano. Even after she has healed from the accident she just is hurt too much my the memory of her mother to even try to start over. Billie also feels as if she has been left alone by her father because she doesn't think he cares for her. This book is a powerful story of a girl who uses her strength, courage, and love to overcome all obstacles in her way.

The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm - book cover picture

I think this book was very intresting and how it took place in the future. I think that if you read this book you will be very excited and very intresting. One of the parts that I liked was that the Masks had a special spirit withing their mask that they were. I alos liked how in the building how fast the elevator went and how it went around to other places to. Why don't you try and find the secret identities of the Godwannans.

Best New Book of 2005!!

Map of Bones - book cover picture

Attention!!! Go read this book now! Never a dull moment. Its like Daniel Silva meets Dan Brown meets Michael Crichton. Science, History, and Spy all in one!!! Best fiction in 2005 so far.

Nothing pisses me off more than Dan Brown haters. Da Vinci Code was a great entertaining book that made you wonder. However I have to say with an honest opinion, this book takes the cake. The characters, imaginitive plot, technology, history, and action are all extremely entertaining.

This is my first Rollins book which I decided to try because of fellow Amazon reviewers. Great reviews peeps. You turned me on to an awesome book that has instantly become one of my all time favorites.

A funny and fresh look of Silicon Valley

The Nudist on the Late Shift : And Other True Tales of Silicon Valley - book cover picture

The book is very entertaining to read and has a "fiction" tone throughout the book. Po did a great job to portrait variety of characters in Silicon Valley, successors and failures alike. I was laughing out loud (created a few funny looks from fellow passengers) and could not put it down. The book is also very edcucational revealing behind the scenes from startups to IPO, though I would not use the book for my businees practice. Highly recommend it!!!

Peel My Love Like an Onion - book cover picture

How often is the main character of an American novel, a middle aged, Mexican-American woman? Seldom! How often is the main character of an American novel, a middle aged, Latina with a physical disability? Counting Ana Castillo's novel - ONE! If some readers can't see past the "love-triangle" perhaps they've not peeled enough layers!!! How very, very sad for them. I agree with an earlier review, who although acknowledging she saw some problems with the novel, concluded: "Castillo's new novel is nonetheless a celebration of life lived to it fullest ... it honors freedom and the capacity to survive against all odds." For those of us, who like Carmen are middle-aged Latinas, I say kudos to Ana Castillo for creating such a character. Gracias!!!!

Midnight's Children - book cover picture

This is the first Rushdie book I've read, and I am completely blown away. An autobiographic account of an unlikely protagonist whose life is intertwined with the destiny of his country, Midnight's Children is an all-encompassing account of post-independence India, its people, cultures and politics. An eclectic cast of gifted children, army generals, impotent husbands, religious zealots, movie actresses play out their extraordinary parts in the tranquil valley of Kashmir, "magical" slums of Old Delhi, an oppulent British estate in Bombay, the enchanted jungles of Sundarban and military encampments in Pakistan, connecting dots that bring out a picture which is astounding and surreal even to a native like me.

The Chronicles of Narnia Set - book cover picture

Sometimes this book classified as children's book. But this is not quite correct. This is one of those precious masterpieces that appeal to people of all tastes and ages. I really liked it a lot. Why? This is a perfect fairy tale, the kind loved by kids, with good and bad characters and inevitable happy end. If you ever were fascinated with magic of fairy tales in your childhood, you will find this magic alive once more on the pages of the Chronicles of Narnia. But the book is not so simple. It characters are complex and cannot always be interpreted as absolutely positive or negative. They go through the wonderful adventures, each books developing and strengthening the thoughs of the previous one, you better understand the general idea that love and goodness is around you, you just have to look for them and believe in them. And if you remember this, it cal add some happiness to your daily life.
