A fine balance - book cover picture

Oprah didn't sell this one very well when she announced it on her show. All she said was that it was set in India and that it was good. And it is, but it is so much more than that. I was sucked into it from the beginning, despite having misgivings about whether or not I wanted to read it. Many of Oprah's choices seem to be depressing, so I was wary. Although there are some awful things that happen to the characters in this book, it never left me feeling depressed. I felt for the characters, but I also felt that there was hope and happiness just around the corner. I really liked reading about the daily life of the characters. It was a glimpse into a world that I had never really thought about. It made me grateful for what I have. It made me respect how hard it is just to survive in other places in the world.

Lust Killer (Signet True Crime S.) - book cover picture

Rule, who today is probably the best-known writer of very long true-crime books, here (in one of her first books) comes up with something short, and very, very scary. The subject of this book,
Jerry Brudos, could be considered one of the first modern serial killers (right around 1968). Brudos, who had a very unpleasant childhood, somehow grew up without a conscience, and unable to separate sex from violence. So he got his kicks from killing women. Fortunately, he didn't kill many (unlike Ted Bundy, who was a friend of Rule's before she knew what he was) before he got caught, and was imprisoned for life. Rule is very good at
going into the background and psychology of these monsters, and
telling us what creates them.

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. - book cover picture

At [age], I didn't think anyone could write about MEN-STROO-A-SHON(don't worry, you'll get this joke once you read the book). It also taught me that an author doesn't have to get religious but spiritual-yes, there is a difference-, and that a person can talk to God about anything (don't worry, I'm not getting preachy, just mentioning what the story did for me personally). So this book is a tool: a somehow self-contained, spiritual self-help book for preadolescent-adolescent readers, and a preparation for what to expect when the CURSE happens to you (sorry fellows, was speaking only to the ladies on this point). So, read and re-read this book. Laugh, cry, get mad, but also, pass this on to your guy friends that are man enough to read it. It's a lot deeper than MEN-STROO-A-SHON.

House of Leaves : A Novel - book cover picture

Wow. This is a book I tried reading 2 or 3 times before finally getting into it, and once I got into it I was seriously hooked. Suspenseful, challenging, absolutely scary, it is quite the read, and is really a category by itself. So many images keep coming back to you afterwards. Hallways that go nowhere...maybe. Sounds inside the walls...things that literally don't measure up. I cannot recommend it enough. Try hard to get the copies with the subtle coloring of some of the words (for example, the word "house" is printed in blue), it adds an errie effect.

This House of Sky: Landscapes of a Western Mind - book cover picture

As a native Montanan, I was drawn to this book. I don't know what I can say without reapeating the outstanding things others reviewing this book have stated. I, like a previous reader, pick up House of Sky just to read certain passages over and over. The use of the English language in this book is Masterful; absolutely masterful. The emotions that the words stir up in even the manliest of us men, is remarkable. Even if you are reading this review by accident, BUY THE BOOK. You won't be able to put it down... I guarntee it.

Sticks - book cover picture

Sticks is a realistic fiction book written by Joan Bauer.
Mickey's father was the world's pool champion for a lot of years. Mickey Vernon wanted to be the world's pool champion too after his father died.
This story takes place in Mickey's house, Vernon's pool hall, the school, and the library of Cruckston, New Jersey.
This main character Mickey wanted to be the world's pool champion. In order to be the world's pool champion, he needs to beat Buck Pender who is an awesome player and Sledgehammer who is a murderer at pool. Joseph Alvarez (Mickey's father's friend) is teaching Mickey pool and told him not to play Buck, but poor Mickey didn't listen and lost and got in a fight with Buck and hurt his hand.

I will recommend this book because I learned that without math you couldn't do a lot of fun things.

Best I've read for many reasons


Book title: Tao Te Ching
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Tao Te Ching - book cover picture

I've read many versions of the Tao. I like this one best for these reasons: It is alive. Many others are dry and dull. It is egalitarian, which I believe is the intent of the Tao. It is up to date and accessible by "modern" thinkers. The footnotes increase my understanding. Granted, other translators may be more true to the source, but Mitchell takes into account that this is 2500 year old material, and addresses how it can best be understood TODAY. May you always be at one with the way.

Gossip Girl #1 : A Novel by Cecily von Ziegesar (Gossip Girl) - book cover picture

This is a great book for any girl looking for an easy, fun read. About a group of ritzy Manhattanites, the Gossip Girl crowd makes me nostalgic for a world I've never known. It's enough to make me wish I live in a penthouse on 5th Avenue and shop at Barney's all the time, except . . .
The people in the Gossip Girl world are pretty nasty. But that's what makes this story so intriguing. The author pulls you into a world of fabulous parties, beatiful girls, hot boys, designer clothes, and of course, a LOT of drinking. You actually get to feel like you know the people (in my case, I loved and sympathized with Serena, and thought Blair was a you-know-what). After reading Gossip Girl, you'll be surprised at what happens in the sequel, You Know You Love Me, and you'll probably find it hard to hate any of the characters, as the sequel deals a lot more in depth with the main characters.
So go ahead, you know you want to! Enter the world of Gossip Girl.

A hauntingly beautiful book


Book title: The Bluest Eye
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Bluest Eye - book cover picture

This is the first book that I read by Toni Morrison and I realized instantly that she was an incredible writer who was burning with life. I have now read almost every published Morrison book, but this remains my favorite. Why? Because, like many first novels ("The Bluest Eye" is more novella in length) it is intensely personal and passionate. The story is sad enough to make you cry, yet not without hope. What makes it so amazing for me is its near poetry quality. There are passages that are nearly verse in their beauty and essentialness, meanwhile Morrison slowly brings them home and turns them to her poignant commentary and compassionate telling of eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove's tragic dream. Wow! Just writing about it makes me want to go pull the book off its shelf and start reading it again. Great insight into the Southern black experience. Blanket and tissue recommended.
