The Book of Ruth - book cover picture

Yes, the Book of Ruth is dark and at times it is difficult to see Ruth suffer. Don't let that stop you from reading this book. You have probably met people like this in your own life, maybe some of her experiences are yours. Who doesn't know a woman who has a poor relationship with her mother or have a selfish, simple husband. Who doesn't question their place in the world and envy others who seem to have it all. It is difficult to read this book because it can be so very real. It does not have a Hollywood plot, don't be satisfied with Hollywood plots, challenge yourself and don't turn away, read this book, you will be thankful that you did. You will be thinking about Ruth long after you have finished it.

The One That Got Me Hooked

The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, Book 2) - book cover picture

This is the book that actually got me hooked on the Dark Tower series. Never being a great fan of the Gunslinger (although the revised edition is somewhat better), I picked up this book with some trepidation -- and I'm glad I did! King was really in top form with this book. The characters are well-developed and the story is interesting. By the time you get done, you can't wait for the next book in the series. Of all the characters, Odetta/Susannah, the Lady of Shadows, is the most interesting and the most haunting. Long after the book is finished, it's her character that remains with you. The Dark Tower is one of those series that leaves you anxiously waiting for the next one to appear, which is why it's so frustrating when King was taking his sweet time writing each book in the series. It will also be sad once it finally comes to an end, unlike Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series.

Outstanding, worthwhile, best I've read

The Spiral Staircase : My Climb Out of Darkness (Armstrong, Karen) - book cover picture

This book is one of the best I've read in a very long time. Ms. Armstrong's account of her life after leaving the convent and her search for her life's meaning was compelling and beautifully written. I learned so much from her struggle and her courage. Such difficulties could have led many people to suicide, but she toughed it out and never gave up. In the end, her reward and ours was a life lived in study, comtemplation, and sharing her wisdom through her writing. Anyone who has ever grappled with the meaning of religion and life will benefit from reading this book. It reads like a novel and will draw you in as it did me. Thank you Karen Armstrong for this beautiful, heartfelt memoir. I absolutely loved your book.

Galileo's Daughter : A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith and Love - book cover picture

This is an extraordinary book. Most stores carry it in the science section, but it goes far beyond that narrow genre. While its title refers to Galileo's daughter, it is really a dual biography, vividly depicting the lives of the father and the daughter, their interactions and the tumultuous times in which they lived. Ms. Sobel is a writer of extraordinary clarity and grace, bringing the personalities and struggles of these two intelligent people alive while minimizing the problems inherent in keeping track of the dozens of minor characters in the Church and secular establishments that influenced their fate. You don't have to be knowledgeable or even interested in science to enjoy the drama of the lives depicted here. I highly recommend it.

I cannot believe that J.K.Rowling has produced another astounding book!! Usually as series get bigger the quality of the books deteriorate, but not so in this case! In this 3rd HP book, Harry is whisked off into another exciting year at Hogwarts. There are new characters and old, things that are the same and things that are different. Follow Harry through his roller-coaster ride of a year that ends with a great surprise and an interesting twist, and you will be begging for the next book!!

Ella Enchanted (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

This rich and delightful retelling of Cinderella provides a saucy heroine, a rational explanation of her slavish ways with her wicked step-family and a fresh love story to boot. Lucinda, a foolish fairy, bestows the gift of obedience on Ella at birth, which turns out to be a terrible burden. All is more or less well until her mother unexpectedly dies, and Ella is shipped off to finishing school with her cruel and demanding step-sisters-to-be. Ella runs off to find Lucinda in hopes of lifting the curse and has many adventures, but the curse stays in place. Full of fairy tale elements, Ella, who is a linguistic genius, manages to do her best despite the peril she finds herself in as a result of uncompromising obedience. The romance between Ella and Char, the prince, is clever and endearing. As the traditional elements of the tale unfold, those readers who enjoyed original versions will adore this new and improved offering.

Dr. Bob Arnot's Revolutionary Weight Control Program - book cover picture

If you have any will power this book and diet will revolutionize the way you think about eating and exercise. Every sentence makes sense, and it is extreemly motivating when after two weeks of a low-glucose diet you have noticably lost weight. One spring of this diet and I was ready for the summer next to the pool. However, if you don't like beans or can at least learn to like them you will have a hard time making this diet work for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! Thanks Bob.

Thin Ice (Laurel-Leaf Books) - book cover picture

A review by Bree
Scott and Arden are brother and sister, their parents died in a plane crash when they were little. Scott has been raising Arden ever since he can remember. Arden and Scott have learned over time not or intrude or become too nosey about each other's lives.This book was perfect for me. It was written in a language that I could easily understand. However, it was not so easy that I felt that I was reading in an elementary school level. The author explains things clearly and doesn't move the pace of the book too fast. There were a few unfamiliar words but it pushed me to read beyond my level. The subject of this book also made it perfect for me. I enjoy reading books and "real situations." Thin Ice is a serious book that really puts the reader into the characters shoes. I would strongly recommend this cook to young readers who enjoy reading stories about real situations. I would recommend it for 6th grade and above because of the content and concepts of the book.

Love Beyond Life: The Healing Power of After-Death Communications - book cover picture

Joel Martin and Patricia Romanowski are a phenomenal writing team when it comes to literature on the after-life. After my tragic loss I was doubting my belief in the after life but, after reading Love Beyond Life: The Healing Powers of After Death Communications as well as We Don't Die, We Are Not Forgotten and Forever Our Children, I found the confirmation and comfort that our departed loved ones continue to go on and are with us.It is with great saddness that I had to look for these books but, I am grateful to both Mr. Martin and Ms.Romanowski that they have created such reassuring and reaffirming material.

Cyber-Marx: Cycles and Circuits of Struggle in High-Technology Capitalism - book cover picture

Workers of all ecosystems/bioregions/networks/affinity groups UNITE! We have nothing to lose but a precious planet. Nick Dyer-Witheford gives us an excellent map of contemporary social struggles and offers wonderful hints on not only why, but how we can reappropriate the fruits of knowledge we are coerced into 'alienating' under the current paradigm of property and contract that is capitalism. Only then will we be able to have the time and freedom to mobilize our fellow citizens to alleviate the totally unnecessary impoverishment of 2/3rds of humanity. The dyad of globalization/antiglobalization is a misnomer and a cruel joke. This books tells us why and is written in an extremely accessible style that'll turn us all into organizers for social justice and economic democracy. Let's go for it....
