A Gathering of Spies - book cover picture

From the moment Katarina Heinrich, a German spy, kills Catherine Danielson and assumes her identity, I was caught in a web of thrills that kept me turning pages as Katarina, now Catherine, marries a Princeton professor, and moves to Los Alamos where she discovers AlbertEinstein's 'secret'letter toFranklin DelanoRoosevelt detailing a secret,the development of the A Bomb. Altman takes you through a plot of spy and counterspy which keeps you glued to the page. Will Katarina deliver her secret to the Germans? A subplot involving an English spy whose wife in interred in Dachau provides excitement while the reader learns if a man will do "anything" to get his wife out of a concentration camp. Hitler and his cohorts that run the Nazi machine come to life as real, manipulative and vulnerable. Reading A Gathering of Spies until six thirty in the morning was worth the loss of sleep.

Case Closed : Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK - book cover picture

A few years ago, I met Jim Leavelle at a book signing in Dallas. Leavelle was the Dallas homicide detective who was handcuffed to Oswald when Ruby shot him. Leavelle said the JFK murder was easy to solve. He said they didn't find it much different from any Saturday night shooting except that there was a famous person involved. I have read Mr. Posner's book and many others over the years as I visited and revisited Dealey Plaza and all the associated sites in Dallas and Fort Worth. After reviewing all that, I am brought to the same conclusion as the Warren Commission and Mr. Posner:Oswald did it.

The Book of Three (Prydain Chronicles) - book cover picture

Out of thousands of books I have read the Chronicles of Prydain series had a better impact on me than almost any other. These are books that are tremendously fun for children, or adults, to read, yet they teach moral values and build character. And that is something we desperately need in society today. I would encourage anyone with boys aged 11-13 in particular to get these books. You won't regret it.

This recording is wonderful!

Audio Bible New Testament - book cover picture

For anyone who chooses the New International Version as their Bible will absolutely love this recording. It is lovingly narrated and precisely word-for-word. I recommend it to anyone who wants to hear the clearest and best recording. It is well worth the price and I love to share it with friends. It's funny how few people realize that there is a recorded Bible out there. Thank you Stephen Johnston.

Dreadful Sorry (Point Signature) - book cover picture

Nightmares can't turn real - or can they? Teen Molly has always been plagued with nightmares of drowning - to the point that she jeopardizes her high school graduation and perfect academic records by refusing to get into the water. When one of the boys in her dreams turns up in the real world and nearly drowns her, Molly flees to her stepmother and father's new home in Maine - only to find the past follows closely behind. Kathryn Reiss has made a name for herself in previous tales of timeslip and supernatural events and Dreadful Sorry represents another powerful contribution to the genre.

Fantastic Story

Book title: The Giving Tree
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Giving Tree - book cover picture

A great and yet simple story of a young boy, a "giving" tree and unconditional love. But me thinks this tale was meant more for the parents reading it than the kids since I have a feeling the moral goes over their blessed little self-absorbed heads. But I'm sure than after numerous readings the beautiful message does sink in. A child's story that touches all ages. Be prepared to tear up the first couple of times you read it and whatever you do - DON'T read it when you're pregnant unless you have plenty of Kleenex on hand.

Beautifully written and very moving.

Cold Mountain - book cover picture

Cold Mountain was a revelation, since it is of a genre I normally avoid. But reading it was a pleasure - an occasionally harrowing pleasure - but a pleasure nonetheless. Adventurous and romantic, it presents us with two heroic figures in Ada and Inman, and the realization of their feelings for one another is profoundly moving. I was impressed by Frazier's skill, his knowledge historical and geographic, and his interweaving of these into this lovely tale against a nightmare background. Superb.

Enjoyed it, but why'd the engine die?

The New New Thing: A Silicon Valley Story - book cover picture

This book is a quick, enjoyable read. A fascinating look into Silicon Valley, web-world, and Jim-Clark-world. It's maddening though that they couldn't figure out why Hyperion's engine kept dying. Lewis went on and on about the problem, but never tells us what caused it. I think that it was either the pressure transducer or the analog-to-digital converter board in the PLC. What do you think?I would have: 1. Removed the transducer and checked its calibration. 2. Replaced it with another to see if that corrected the problem. 3. Next, if not yet fixed, swap out the A/D board. 4. Check the transducer wire for connection problems.Oh well, I'm sure Mr. Clark eventually found it and fixed it. I once had a transducer that had similar behavior - turned out to be a crack in the diaphram. The engineer in me would still like to know though...

The Beautiful and Damned (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

I believe this to be Fitzgerald's second best novel, behind "The Great Gatsby" It took me just a few days to read because it was so captivating. For anyone who romanticizes about a fairy-tale relationship, the one between Anthony and Gloria was just that, in the beginning. Although they waste a good portion of their youth waiting for Anthony's grandfather's fortune, it's still a very romantic book. This was thoroughly entertaining.
