White Oleander : A Novel (Oprah's Book Club) - book cover picture

The story is great!The author writes so beautifully I can't wait to read her next book... The main character is in foster care and moving from family to family. This made for an interesting way of meeting character after character,each fascinating and rich in his or her own way. The book is tragic,yet hopeful. I couldn't wait to read the next chapter and had a hard time putting it down. I felt so close to the main character that I missed her when I was finished reading. I just can't say enough good things about White Oleander. Those who hated this book must have short attention spans and terrible concepts of good literature.

American Primitive - book cover picture

"American Primitive" is among the finest books of poetry written by an American author in the last 25 years. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize, it is a precise and lucid notation of the natural world. Oliver does not shun away from the severe brutality of every day yet does not paint the beauty of nature's cycle with any diminishment. It has undoubtedly influenced my own writing and is a book I return to to find some sort of truth in accounting for the way things are

Beautiful and eloquent

Book title: The Dream of Water
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Dream of Water - book cover picture

This is a novel of true substance. Not only is Mori's writing beautiful and elegant, it is full of meaning. There is much more to this novel than it seems. It explores the complex and often painful relationship between father and daughter. I was amazed by the author's sparse writing style, yet always moved by the meaning underlying her words. This novel is almost deceptively simple, but the closer you look, the more the layers will reveal themselves. I recommend this for anyone who's had a troubling relationship with a parent.
This is an adult novel, not intended for 12 year-olds (see previous review).

Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

I give this book a five star rating because it keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. The ending was a little "unexpected" because I thought that the adventuerers would have found what they were looking for.But on second thought that is a good thing because you don't want the "same-o-same-o" stuff.I recomend this book to anyone whom really like reading adventures.(BYE!)

Don't compare Villette to Jane Eyre!!!

Villette (English Library) - book cover picture

Don't misunderstand: I love Jane Eyre. But of all of the Bronte books (I have read Emily, Anne, and Charlotte), this is the one that stays with me. Starting with the shipwreck (an allegory for the loss of her family?), following the progression of the love story to the "ambiguous" end, Villette is definitely on my "Top 10" list of most rewarding reading experiences. (When you're done, read the rest of the Brontes!)

The BEST Bridgerton book!

It's In His Kiss - book cover picture

I love all of the Bridgerton series, but this one has to be the absolute best. I laughed out loud so much reading this book! Gareth is truly the only man on Earth who could ever keep up with Hyacinth Bridgerton. Anyone who has read the other Bridgteron books knows how delightfully funny and entertaining Hyacinth is, and in her now very own book she has definately met a man who is just as funny and sarcastic! Gareth St. Clair is absolutely hilarious, and very sweet. This book is the most entertaining book I have read in a very long time.

An essential read for understanding Zen

Book title: Zen in the Martial Arts
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Zen in the Martial Arts - book cover picture

The most difficult thing to do is to try to explain Zen. In this "how to" age everybody seems to want specific answers to what something is and how to do it. Unfortunately, Zen cannot be explained in a simple step-by-step fashion. Zen must be experienced. To help with identifying Zen experiences, Joe Hyams shares his insights into Zen through the invaluable lessons he has learned through training with great martial artists like Ed Parker Jr., Bruce Lee, and Grand Master Bong Soo Han. Contextually this is a very simple and entertaining read. From a conceptual aspect, you will find yourself rereading this book many times to fully understand the simply stated lessons learned by Joe Hyams. This is a must read for anyone seeking a more balanced perspective on their shelf or anyone looking to enhance their martial arts training.

The Beast in the Garden: The True Story of a Predator's Deadly Return to Suburban America - book cover picture

I found this book to be a very lucid account of how Man and the Cougar have changed over the past 100 years. Baron gives the best argument I've come across to explain the growing number of attacks by Cougars on humans.
Human developement, but more so the change in our feelings towards wildlife has created a new ecotone that has allowed the Cougars numbers increase and to lose "respect" for humans. For the last 34 years Cougars have not been hunted in Calif. and I belive that this has caused cats to lose there fear of both man and dogs. Great book well worth the time and money.

War of Another Kind: A Southern Community in the Great Rebellion - book cover picture

I found this to be the best civil war documentation so far for this region. My own research turned up a great great uncle who fought for the Union Army after my great great grandfather was imprisoned. The Unionist side has never been told as well as Durrill's studies have brought it to light. Too much time has been spent studying the great battles, but the Battle of Plymouth ranks right up there in importance. How many yankees think that all southerners agreed and fought for the south, only God knows. They should read this one.
