The Bonfire of the Vanities - book cover picture

Hands down one of the most enteratining novels that I have ever read, and definitely the best rendering of modern New York City in fiction! This paperback was so ubiquitous I waited 10 years to reluctantly read it, and only because it was one of the only books on the shelf where I was staying. Boy, was I rewarded with this compulsively readable, suspenseful, razor-sharp story. For social satire to be so fiendishly plotted is a real treat and this story will have you racing to its inexorable conclusion. Along the way Wolfe manages to poke his pen into virtually every corner of the city, nailing every character-type in this rollicking comedy. WARNING--Never watch the insulting Brian DePalma movie, surely the worst transfer of a novel to film EVER. Read this peerless novel instead.

Daughter of Fortune : A Novel (Oprah's Book Club (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

I have read and loved all of Isabel Allende's books, but even I was surprised by Daughter of Fortune. I could not put it down. After I started, I took it with me everywhere with me until I finished it. Allende's use of forshadowing is sublime and her descriptions make you feel like you are experiencing the adventures of the characters first-hand. I recommend this book to anyone and hope that everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

The Promise of Sleep: A Pioneer in Sleep Medicine Explores the Vital Connection Between Health, Happiness, and a Good Night's Sleep - book cover picture

Dr. Dement has written a very readable book about the importance of sleep. I enjoyed the inclusion of case studies rather than potentially mind-numbing text about the theory. If he is a bit self-promotional, I don't blame him. He has apparently struggled to make the medical community aware of the importance of the sleep issue, and he's now gone out to consumers at large with his message. He deserves credit.

Awful writing, great story

The Bridges of Madison County - book cover picture

I hate to admit it, but I loved this book. Don't ask me why. The writing was truly awful and full of not-very-convincing aphorisms. In fact, the whole book could have been a cliche except for the fact that somehow, somewhere, the story made a lot of sense. It's so believable I actually thought the characters were real. Waller may not be a great writer, but the story, once you get past the cliches, is told with compassion and intelligence.

A Great Book

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

This is simple. If when you finished to see the movie you felt that the first 3 hours were great and the last 3 hours poor, give the story a second chance.Read "The Stand" and you'll see there's is a reason to exists a "good" side and a "evil" side. There's also a very good reason to the "final battle". There's is a reason to the existance of Randall Flagg. This book will answer all the questions the movie let you asking....a must read...

The Pillars of the Earth - book cover picture

This is one of my favorite reads in the last ten years. I didn't think anything could beat The Hobbit until I read Pillars of the Earth. I come from a large family of seven and all of my siblings and parents love this book. There is a large age difference here. This book is not a thriller or spy novel like Ken Follet's other books. It is a great tale about the building of a cathedral and the lives involved in it from Religious people to the lower worker on the scaffolding. It makes you appreciate the cathedrals you see all over Europe. If you like this book , Try Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier.

One of the classics

Book title: Marine Sniper
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Marine Sniper - book cover picture

After only a few months in the Marine Corps., I'd heard stories of the legendary Gunny Hathcock, and I picked up a copy of the book at the PX while in the School of Infantry.10 Years later I finished my third reading, and can't see where all of the bad reviews here are coming from.Reviewers who are claiming that the author couldn't have known what the enemy was thinking obviously skipped past the Preface, others are acting like Hathcock wrote the book himself and are bashing small details. Another claims the book is a farce because all of the literature he's "read" on sniping says that they always operate in teams; he must have gotten a copy with the pages missing that depicted Hathcock getting restricted for operating alone.This is a great book depicting the life of a Marine Corps. legend, don't go into it with the thought that Steven Spielberg invented the sniper scene in "Pvt Ryan", and you'll be okay. :)

After the Ecstasy, the Laundry : How the Heart Grows Wise on the Spiritual Path - book cover picture

Jack Kornfield just keeps getting better with age. What a wise and touching book he has written..again..! I hate to sound too over-the-top enthusiastic, but for ANYONE of ANY faith, religion, or philosphy, this book could serve as your inspiration and guide for many years to come. It is an unpretentious sharing of Jack's experiences and lessons on his path through life so far...He is a superb student, listener, and storyteller. There is alot of substance in this book, I recommend you read it slow and enjoy every word.

Good writer, Good book

The Next Step in the Dance - book cover picture

I totally disagree with the Virginia and Texas reviewers. This was a good book. The characters were believable. The plots were interesting and well told. I've actually read the book more than once and liked it better the second time. I like this as well as Mr. Gautreux's short stories and hope he continues to pursue both areas.That said, I think that people who write such mean, vindictive,
jealous-ridden reviews are probably just frustrated writers who can't get published or people too lazy or afraid to try and write a book themselves. Ignore 'em, Mr. Gautreaux, as I'm sure you do. It's what they deserve.

How to Get Started in Electronic Day Trading: Everything You Need to Know to Play Wall Street's Hottest Game - book cover picture

There is tons of good stuff in this book for trading. I havebeen at it for over 30 years and I think this book is the best on thesubject. I read the book and feel it is outstanding. Another review had led me to the source to review this book since reviews on this site seem to be weighted with a bias from obvious competitors etc. I found it hard to make a decision based on this information. I hope my review will be more helpful.The author spells things out in a simple way. I like things simple since the market always has a way of making things more complicated than they are. I have traded on a floor of an exchange for 10 1/2 years and can say the market is not as complicated as it seems nor as easy. This book is an accurate representation of what it takes to trade. If you read it and follow the sound advice in it, I think you will come to a similar conclusion that I did. END
