I agree with both, but ultimately, it has literary value.

Yes, the book brought environmentalism into the light, and people started to care more about nature. But I also believe that DDT is not a harmful chemical, and that the ban on it should be lifted to save lives. The book isn't militant in its environmentalist themes- it does not aim for us to go back to nature, or to even have animals' needs fulfilled first. She implies that human life is, indeed, more important, and that humans come first. The aims of her book often concern the misuse of DDT, and the usage of actually deadly poisons.The book should not be heralded entirely for its scientific value (which is minimal). Instead, one should point out that this book is poetic, and well-written. It also stand as a testament to the power of literature, and the influence that words have on people.

The best of the "Hannibal" series

Book title: Red Dragon
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Red Dragon - book cover picture

Having heard so much buzz about Silence of the Lambs, I decided to buy all three books in the series. This was the only one I really enjoyed.

I find Will Graham to be a far more interesting protagonist than Clarice Starling, and Francis Dolarhyde is a far more terrifying and interesting serial killer than Hannibal.

Although a bit dated, the way Francis chooses his victims is a far more terrifying concept. Plus, there is a psychological reasoning to why he is doing the things he's doing, that makes him a far more realistic character. The abuse that he suffers as a child rationalizes his behavior, while Lecter's is just plain puzzling, and isn't really explained until "Hannibal". and his behavior is only vaguely rational at that point.

This book is entertaining, and has many interesting twists. I highly recommend it.

Programming Perl (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

This is a great book for users who are not new to perl but would like a understanding of the "not-so-basic" Perl functions. This book does have some basic instruction, but is really lacking . The only big complaint I have about this book is the very limited instruction on how to create modules. With that in mind, I still feel that any "real" Perl programmer should have this on his desk.

A Profound Pop Artifact of the Clintonian Years

Book title: The Alienist
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Alienist - book cover picture

A bestseller that profoundly and subliminally tapped into the dread, malaise, and inarticulate social and spiritual decay of late twentienth century America using the elegant mask of history to couch it's criticism and it's agenda. Is it any coincidence that the final scene of this novel involves a pyramid-shaped structure which most wickedly symboliizes the iconography of a dollar bill in relation to so much human suffering? A movie version was planned in the summer of 1995, but it's long delayed and impossible completion was probably due, despite the book's popular success with readers,to it's being too much of a hot potato for Hollywood at the time.

If you are considering reading this book, I heartily recommend it. It was a beautiful book about coming of age, whether that age be 18 or 45. I also STRONGLY recommend that you do not read the review above by Kirkus Reviews: it completely gives away the whole storyline. Unlike some authors, Delinsky is good about throwing in surprises, but the above review uncovers them all. All in all, it's a really nice story, especially if you're a fan of hers.

I just recently re-read this book for the fourth time. I really love it more each time. Niffenegger is a modern master. To prevent such a complex concept in such a creative way is sheer brilliance. I fall in love with Henry and with Clare each time I read this book. I hope that there tale isn't really over, and that one day, this author will bring these characters back again through the eyes of Alba. Until then, *tesser well*

Eaters of the Dead (Previously The 13th Warrior) - book cover picture

Eaters of the Dead is a very good book. It is very descriptive. The book describes everything in detail. It describes every battle to the last period. If you have a weak stomach or don't like blood of anything of that nature, I suggest that you don't read this book. The book is about a man named ibn-Fadlan, who was simply bringing a message from kingdom to kingdom, when he ran into a group of Vikings. He was eventually forced to travel with the Vikings. His travels take him far from his objective, but into many other adventures. Among his adventures, he must battle the horrific and vicious "mist-monsters," and destroy their "mother." After all of his adventures, he went through a drastic change, he became an excellent warrior.

An interesting take on the familiar

Book title: Our Vampires, Ourselves
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Our Vampires, Ourselves - book cover picture

Cogently argued, thoughtfully presented, entertainingly written. Since purchasing this book when it was first published, I've reread parts of it many times, just for the enjoyable and lively style of argument. Sure, there are many points I disagree with (but I could say the same for Neitzsche and Wittgenstein, too), but I always put the book down impressed by Auerbach's style and imagination. Others may claim that the book warrant only a single star in terms of a rating, for no other reason than their disagreement with the thesis. I say, whether you wind up agreeing or disagreeing--buying into everything Auerbach says or writing her off as wrongheaded--this book gives you plenty to chew on. If you disagree, ask yourself why you disagree; you may end up embracing the viewpoint of the third mind.

Shogun - book cover picture

I got Shogun for my birthday, and it is awesome. I had not been that interested in Japanese culture, and what I usually assosciated Japan with was what I saw from martial arts movies, etc. BUT, this book was awesome. It grabbed my attention, which is what I most liked about it. Even if you are not interested in Japanese culture, this book will make you interested! It is the epic story of an english pilot who is shipwrecked and lands in Japan. The book follows his life in Japan, how he is intergrated into their society, etc. On the way, loads of Japanese culture is revealed to you. There is action, intrigue, everything you would ever want, as well as occasional humour.
The characters are all different and unforgettable. I seriously recommend this book to anyone. You will not be displeased!
