Soul of a Citizen : Living With Conviction in a Cynical Time - book cover picture

This incredible book teaches us that everyone can work for social justice and claim their right to participate as a citizen in everyday life. In a time where many small groups of ordinary citizens are choosing to re-engage in American democracy through Salons and Circles, we are grateful for this book to inspire and empower us. Loeb uses storytelling to illustrate how involvement in citizenship is surprisingly powerful and creates a tremendous sense of personal and spiritual growth. This hopeful and transformative book invites each of us to choose to take responsible action instead of choosing the civic apathy that has allowed America's governing bodies to listen to the wishes of the most powerful and profitable over the majority of its people. It is time for each of us to choose a better way -- our children, our communities, our democracy, and our natural world depend on us. This book is a great step in the right direction!

A Realistic Feature to Scary to Think About

Rating: 5/5

Parable of the Sower - book cover picture

Another reviewer stated that this book will change your perception which it did for me. Octavia's book, "Parable of the Sower", is a powerful look at what could be, and it doesn't look very optimistic with the decline of society to a point were city/community states must protect themselves from the chaos around them with force. However for me the novel teaches me that we cannot isolate ourselves for the chaos around us and that we must face it head on and try to make the difference no matter how painful. Octavia does a tremendous job at engaging the reader and not letting go. Can't wait to read the sequel

Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books - book cover picture

The only thing I regret is that no review written by me or any other reader could ever completely capture the beauty of this extrodinary book. It is truly one piece of literature that needs to be read to be believed.By far Francesca Lia Block's most acclaimed novel, Dangerous Angels reads like no other piece of fiction. Poetic and beautiful it stands apart from the typical modern fiction. It is truly a book as passionate and beautiful as the author itself. By the end of the novel Weetzie Bat and the whole crew become more than just characters, they are as familiar as your own friends.So what are you waiting for? Pick this book up and see if you aren't here too writing a five star review yourself.

first time read - shocking, but sadly true.

Hells Angels: Into the Abyss - book cover picture

This is exactly what the HELLS ANGELS M.C. (International) are up against. The expected move into terror, attacking other one percenters, and generally throwing away our original lifestyle. This book is really worth reading for two main reasons. ONE - just to see what happens when pure capitalism gets hold of a few greedy people, TWO - allowing the name HELLS ANGELS to be brought into the mainstream, which is opposite to the anti-corporate thing our founders wished. It is sad but true, and the HELLS ANGELS M.C.I., will stay out ''in the cold'' a little while longer thanks. ps- All interested people should read this book, but we must tell you - and other one percenters, there are true club members out there who wish not to offer murder and crime to our children - if ya know where to look.

Rules of Engagement (Governess Brides, Book 2) - book cover picture

Pamela Lockhart has a problem - she's much too beautiful to be a governess. So she hides under frumpy clthes and an excess of cosmetics to be governess to the ward a handsome young Earl had fetched from an orphanage solely to prove to Queen Victoria that he was respectable and responsible. It doesn't take long for Devon to discover the beauty that is more than skin deep - and to discover that Pamela is that rarest woman of all - one whom he can love forever.This is the second in Dodd's series about the founders of the Distinguished Academy of Governesses. I am looking forward to the third!

The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born - book cover picture

Not any one of Soyinka's or Achebe's works can hold a candle to this particular work by Ayi Kwei Armah. I studied this book for a critical appreciation of literature course at University in 1980 and until this moment I still re-live the metaphors, the satire and the grating images of corruption as depicted in this critically accalimed novel which remains a classic. You would pick this book up to read 3 decades after it was written and it would still seem like a novel that just came out; it would hang with you and haunt you, and you would still be able to identify with it. The language, the imagery, the writing is flawless and just excellent if you have a knack for appreciation of literature or writing. This book in my opinion, is better than the best and should be up there with works by all other literary giants of our time.

The Night Remembers - book cover picture

Kathleen Eagle has crafted an unusual story of tragedy and the healing power of love. I absolutely got swept away by the story that evolves around Jesse Brown Wolf and Angela Prescott. The tragedies that brought them together caught at my heart.The only thing I would have liked to seen done differently was the way Angela and her former lover's final scene was handled. This scene was the only one that didn't add up to the level of intensity that it deserved. Everything else was excellent.I'm anxious to read more of Kathleen's work.

Every scar tells a story

Book title: Skin Game
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Skin Game - book cover picture

As you grow up, you're taught that every scar tells a story and I believe that Caroline Kettlewell has proved that point.This book is a remarkable memoir of growing up with self-mutilation. She tells of how it looked, felt, etc. It can get a bit graphic, but sometimes, you need the graphic stuff in order to understand the feelings.I think that this book is exquisite. I think every self-injurer could identify with the feelings that Caroline went through. I think that non-'cutters' could identify with some of the feelings, too.This book gives cutters a feeling of not being alone and non-cutters a way to understand what it's like to hurt so much that you have to hurt yourself.There aren't enough words to describe how awesome this book is. I just hope that it helps you to understand how serious self-mutilation really is.
