Raven: A Trickster Tale from the Pacific Northwest - book cover picture

I get antsy when Native American themes and stories appear in children's books. Too often they reek of cultural misappropriation. But this beautiful book--gorgeous watercolor backgrounds to the Northwest Native American-style imagery--feels respectful, and does a great telling of a favorite Tlingit Haida tale of how light came into the world. The illustration of the morphing of the Sky Chief's spoiled grandson back into Raven is particularly effective.And when Raven fills the sky with the sun in his beak, it's very easy to buy into this story as a valid creation myth. I've now bought three copies of this book for various pre-schoolers I know, and all my grown-up friensd who've seen this book have fallen in love with it, too. This is a definite winner, bound to become as classic in its own way as Robert McCloskey's ``Blueberries for Sal.''

Jane Eyre (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

Charlotte Brontes classic novel has ignited a love of literature, although I admit I first read it for a school assesment 6 months ago, the next 4 times was out of love for every word in the book!!! Being a romantic the Jane-Mr Rochester saga was the main page turner, but also the intrege of Grace Poole and her secret as well as the way we see Jane grow in mind, heart and soul. As a buildingsromand it shines, it was one of the first modern (if you can call it that!) novels to use such a technique. Truly beautiful. I reccomend it to all.

The Essential Chronology (Star Wars) - book cover picture

People who dont read the ESWU books if they by this book may keep to find out information they did not know about. Where can they find this information? What book does it lie in? etc ... which means maybe in a sense the series will become more popular. As a avid collector of Star Wars Literature, I am always looking for a good history lesson on Star wars. I have not bought this book but i am looking forward to buying it. I have collected the other 5 books to the essential series which i enjoy kind of fun learning about the hidden secrets of items such as droids weapons and ships. And even darker origins of Characters. I recommend if you like the star wars trilogy, and if you want to know more about it then get this book.

The Green Mile: Coffey on the Mile (Green Mile Series) - book cover picture

I have been an avid reader of Stephen King's books since I read "IT." This green mile series has been an entertaining experience from the very beginning. The sympathy you feel for Coffey and Edgecombe at the end was due to the brilliant characterization by King. I think the idea of a serial novel has also worked in making this series a masterpiece. I am desperately waiting for "Desperation" and hope that it meets the high standards that I expect from all of Stephen King's books

The Falling Woman is a classic


Book title: The Falling Woman

Binding: Paperback
The Falling Woman - book cover picture

After a long & fruitful life as an archeaologist, Liz Butler remembers that dig, long ago in the ruins of a Mayan city, when the shade of a long-dead priestess toppled her into a pool of twilight Mayan magic. This little adventure leapt off the best-seller shelf of a general store in a tiny town over a decade ago. One of those tourist racks, here this month & gone with the summer except that this one has some gristle, guts & a timely, riveting premise. Notwithstanding a fascinating heroine, hair-raising drama & suspenseful scenes. I'm glad to see it in reprint!

To Kill A Mockingbird is so far from boring!!!!


Book title: To Kill a Mockingbird

Binding: Hardcover
To Kill a Mockingbird - book cover picture

I can't believe some people think that the descrption, character development and the characters are boring in this novel! This is so incredibly well written-and to those of you that say it's not "well researched" Harper Lee based it on her father, who was a lawyer. He must've provided her so much "research"! What disturbs me is the students' reaction to this book. Here's a tip: You might not like this book because it's too "slow" but wait a couple of years, reread it, then you might be ashamed that you could ever found this book "boring"

A New Song (The Mitford Years) - book cover picture

I lose myself in Jan Karon's books. The series on the little town of Mitford and Father Tim I hope will never end. We need these type books today. God, integrity, goodness, honor and love is so sorely lacking in our world today that I feel hopeful when I am able to find something so rewarding to read. I pray that Jan Karon will continue to develop new characters while keeping the old to remind us that with faith all things are possible. A New Song is well worth the read!! May Jan keep them coming.

THE AUTHORITY ON PHYSICS!

Physics for Scientists & Engineers - book cover picture

Beyond reasonable doubt and beyond belief, this book sets the standard for how a physics book should be written. I own a copy of this book; however, I did not use it in my physics courses. I own 5 other physics books and this one has been the best. It has clear, concise, colorful, and interesting examples. I especially like the summary of problem solving tips that occurs frequently in the chapters.

Clever Examination of THE Friendship of the 20th Century

Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship - book cover picture

Yes, Meacham is writing about two of the most written-about (justifiably so) figures of the past century; but this is fresh and original writing. Instead of repeating the facts and dates of so many biographies of these two great men, the author examines their friendship, the psychology of that friendship, and how their relationship shaped world history. Meacham clearly did exhaustive research for this book; the result is a work that is sure to be the definitive volume on this very interesting and significant relationship. I cannot recommend this wonderful volume highly enough to any and all interested readers.

Alto & other clefs

Symphonies Nos. 8 and 9 in Full Score - book cover picture

In response to the reviewer above, I find the comment absurd. These clefs are neither 'antiquated' nor are they 'obsolete'.These are the standard musical clefs in use today whenever the musical notes are extended far above the standard 5 bar staff. To save the musicians eyes, and nerves, rather than have the notes printed with an unending series of bar marks underneath them so that they no longer become readable, the composer uses the shorthand method of moving the notations downward in an easily learned symbol of clefs that make reading music easy and fun for the player, but have no effect on which notes are to be played.I say keep up with the clefs. It makes life easier. For the above reviewer -- go back to class and study up on musical clef signs. I much perfer them over the alternative.
