The Bear Went Over the Mountain - book cover picture

I picked this book of the shelf based on the cover, it was so atypical of an adult fiction book cover. What a find! As I started reading this book I would come across lines in it that made me laugh so hard I had tears running down my face. My kids thought I had finally gone off the deep end. As I acclimated to the style of the book I was able to control these outbursts but still found it to be the funniest book I had read in a long time. Particularly funny if you own a dog or know anything about bears. I guess I also learned alot about the publishing and marketing of a book. So funny that none of the humans ever realized Hal Jam was a bear, they saw what they wanted to see (or didn't want to see). An easy read. Although listed at over 300 pages the amount of printed word per page is small, the book is closer in length to a typical 100 page book.

John Hadamuscin's Enchanted Evenings : Dinners, Suppers, Picnics & Parties - book cover picture

Even if I didn't like to cook, this book would tempt me to try some of Mr. Hadamuscin's recipes. They are written in a clear manner, and the photographs are outstanding. Mr. Hadamuscin's recipes are a tribute to food, family and home. I've made many of his treats, and I have never been disappointed. His recipes are presented in a format such as "An Old Salem Pumpkin Supper", or "A Comforting Supper", where the entire menu is presented. All the thinking is done for you! I have many of his books, and look forward to any future publications.

I was notified of the existence of this work by a friend a greatly admire. Our tastes are usually in sync. He had recently borrowed a book from the library and was singing its praises to me before he had even finished. Upon completing the novel he lent it to me. Trusting I would read and return said book in the time allotted preventing him from the wrath of the librarians. Needless to say, I loved it. It is most important here to note that rarely does someone recommend anything to me I enjoy as much as them. Nor have I ever recommended anything to anyone else who loved it as much as me. Great book!

I just finished reading this book, and it was excellent. It is amazing how King and Straub together could write such a good story. The book never gets boring, and it will keep you interested frm the beginning to the end. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just those who like to read fantasy. Do yourself a favor, READ THIS BOOK. You will be very glad that you did! Also recomended The Green Mile and It.

No Promises in the Wind - book cover picture

I must admit I have had this book for a few years but, as I started to read this captivating story I could not put it down till the story was finished. The characters of Josh and Joey were so captivating you could almost feel you were a part of them. The reviewers at the start must keep in mind that this book was ment to give children and young adults a view of the depression even if it is fictional. My only regret is there is no sequal to add to this wonderful story.

Patience? What's that?

Faster - book cover picture

This book serves as a good reminder that good things come to those who wait. It doesn't take a genius to realize that the pace of life is truly out of control in this country. Even things done for enjoyment are being categorized as "tasks." This book really puts the mentality of the American people in focus, as we run around like chickens with our heads cut off, achieving less enjoyment as a result.

I think as a result of advances in technology and the nature of our economic system, people are going to become seriously burned out with obsessions with "efficiency" and speed. This book is a good reminder to those especially in the business and technology fields. The book is ironically separated into nice little schedulable 6-12 page chapters, so you speed nuts can gain a new perspective on your insanity by putting it on your reading lists.

Chronicling the vicious circle of prejudice and bad science.


Book title: The Mismeasure of Man

The Mismeasure of Man - book cover picture

Gould attacks the twin pillars of racist pseudo-science --
craniometry and IQ testing. He carefully clears away
the assumptions and prejudice clouding some of the last
150 years' most influential studies -- all of which conveniently
showed that the scientists' class/race/gender was far
superior, and certainly deserving of elevated social status.
Conversely, minorities and women were perpetually "deserving"
of second-class status (at best). Fascinating, humorous,
infuriating. The first edition was one of the best books
I had ever read. The new version adds material pertaining
to "The Bell Curve", fingering it as the same old arguments
in new clothing.

The Pearls of Lutra (Redwall, Book 9) - book cover picture

Praise Haaaaaaaaaaawn Brian! Another great book from the series! I found Tansy to be an ok character, but my favorite had to be Grath. I am partial to badgers, otters, and hares. Clecky was very funny, and oi also loikd they moles. The riddles were a wonderful touch, and I managed to solve a few myself. I liked Inbar and Romsca (she was the only half-DECENT corsair>:-}). Something more should have happened to the Abbeybeasts, like in Mattimeo when the ravens attack Redwall. Overall this was a good book, one that any Redwall fan should read. (it was cool when a certain trident-rat and a certain fox killed eachother!) HOLT LUTRAAAAAAAAA! EULALIAAAAAAAAAA! REDWAAAAAAAAAAALL!

A real horrorshow piece of literature, like.

Binding: Paperback
A Clockwork Orange - book cover picture

Anthony Burgess is my new favorite British author. I picked this book because I wanted to read it before I saw the movie, and I enjoyed it more than any other book whick I've read recently. Once you get used to it, the slang which Burgess concocted out of Russian and English makes A Clockwork Orange an infinitely more enjoyable read.One thing which I found somewhat disturbing is that when this novel was published in the early 60's, the ultra-violence which was depicted in it was beyond anything that existed in society at the time. But if you make the setting the inner-city ghettos of the mid nineteen-ninteys, you're not all that far off. The last sentence of Part One, "And me still only fifteen," doesen't have as much of an impact on readers today as it was originally meant to. Is this really a tale of the future any more?I highly, highly, highly reccomend this book to anyone who is mature enough to really appreciate it.

The Talented Mr Ripley (Methuen Drama (Series).) - book cover picture

The Talented Mr Ripley is about a virtual nobody who has numerous jobs. When he his asked by shipyard owner Herbert greenleaf to go to italy to convince his son Dickie to come home. So Tom Ripley does he gets so caught up in Dickie's lifestyle he will do anything to become him even kill if he has to. Written by Patricia Highsmith who went on to write two other novels about Tom Ripley. Highsmith constructs a murder mystery that is so disturbing that it literaly crawls under your skin and forces you to keep on reading. Even though Tom Ripley is a supposed to be a bad person but in the end of the book you really having sympathy for this lowlife. Anthony Minghella adapted this novel to a movie with Matt Damon as Ripley. All i can say the movie really follows the book. and that is alot more than some other adaptations.
