Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics S.) - book cover picture

I was scepticle when my English teacher told me that I was to read this book. But from the first words, I was hooked. Orwell's depiction of a world that would result in total governmental control was a horrifying vision that was all too close to a reality. The Party's inhumanity and evil lust for power made the book impossible to put down. I am glad that I read this book becuase it gave me an insite into what will result if we give our government too much power.

The latest of a great biographer

Elizabeth and Mary : Cousins, Rivals, Queens - book cover picture

I have read Jane Dunn's books since she began with "Moon in Eclipse," the story of Mary Shelley, the author of the tale of Frankenstein's monster and the lover of Percy Shelley, the English, tragic poet and friend of Lord Byron. She has grown as a biographer over these 30 years, from someone that dared not be public in her great talent to a mature writer who now has not only the courage to build a reputation for herself, but as someone who has taken a unique place in literature similar to Lyton Strachey, and with the potential of Virginia Wolf without the madness. This, her latest, rich volume will take its place in that tapestry that she sews - hopefully for many more adventures to come.
I certainly would not have known of this extraordinary relationship between two monarchs without Jane's efforts and ability to paint a picture that comes alive again in her telling.

How poor leadership makes heroes of so many.

When the Poor Boys Dance - book cover picture

An astonishing view of inept leadership at all levels, and uncommon courage at one. While I served proudly in Vietnam with the U.S. Marines, and spent another 20 years in the Guards it would be a mistake to view Mr.Borden's work as a treatise on military virtue alone.
The courage, honor, discipline as well as the fear od L/Cpl Roth is identical to the courage, honor, discipline and fear which is so much a part of people's day to day lives.
In the lives of parents in crime and drug ridden neighborhoods, in the lives of families who try to care for their terminally ill loved ones, and essentially anyone who faces tremendous odds seemingly alone and forgotten.
Mr. Borden masterfully deals with the all to often cause of all this misery " inept leadership ".
For anyone who presently follows, but one day hopes to lead, this book should be your bibl

How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? - book cover picture

I have given Jane Yolen's first HOW DO DINOSAURS book as a gift to dozens of children and not one has been disappointed. I was thrilled to find the second one just as charming and fun as the first. It is the perfect read aloud for any child--sick or not. And parents will be happy to have such a wonderful book to add to the "One More Time" pile. I am always amazed at how versitile Jane Yolen is. When my own little dinosaur finally drifts off to sleep, I can enjoy reading another chapter of her new novel GIRL IN A CAGE.My only complaint is that my daughter may be too old when the next one comes out! Hurry Jane, hurry!

The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

Catcher is the perfect book to read when you are in your angsty teen years. Not only did this book inspire me to purchase a hunting hat, i also intend to name a child, or perhaps a dog, after our disaffected antihero Holden Caulfield. the boy every high school student should feel at least some empathy toward. Holden Caulfield let us know that sometimes it's fine to be a little offbeat. touching, funny and just a little whimsical, my life would be all the poorer without knowing that the world is full of Holden Caulfields. A masterwork of touching human understatement.

Monster (Coretta Scott King Author Honor Books) - book cover picture

I read this book by Walter Dean Myers three years ago and it still has made an impression on me. If a book leaves a lasting impression on the reader it most definitely is a great book. The format, which Myers chose to write, is one that is a fast and easy read for young adults. The protagonist, Steven, is incarcerated for murder. Steven writes a movie script of his ordeal. Is he guilty or innocent? Read this compelling piece of young adult literature and make your own decision.

A friend suggested I read this book and she loaned me her copy. Once I started reading it, it was hard to put down. Once I finished reading it, I wanted to see the muscial again and run out and buy all the "Phantom of the Opera" CDs. The Phantom was so well written--it was more like reading an autobiography rather than a fictional story. It was a beauty story, one that I will read over, and over again. I came to this site looking for a copy of the Phantom, I'm so glad I found it!

The Manchurian Candidate - book cover picture

This is a thrilling novel, especially relevant in the context of today's world politics. Fans of the original film will be impressed with how marvelously it was adapted from this complex and well written novel.I can't imagine why they're remaking the movie in an updated version with Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep, but hopefully they will exexcute it with the same class and poignancy as the first.A great read for people interested in the politics of the 20th Century and today.

Ms. Brown at her best...


Book title: Criminal Minded
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Criminal Minded - book cover picture

Criminal Minded was an easy, inviting, and very good read. It was the type of book that you could read, put down, and anticipate going back to it. You don't want to rush and read this thugged out, love story, you want to hang on to every word. There were a lot of emotions going on between the characters and the reader will truly become a part of each character. Ms. Brown is at her best when writing this story and this book is by far Ms. Brown's best piece of literature. Kudos to you, Ms. Brown, I'm looking forward to your next novel.

Necessary analysis of our culture


Book title: Politics of Experience
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Politics of Experience - book cover picture

This is one of the best books I have ever read, and has influenced my thought more than almost any other. He lays bare the presumptions that are guiding our culture to destroy the planet, with beautiful writing that is clear when it needs to be and obscure when that best serves. A truly remarkable book. My own perception of the ending was different than one other reviewer who thought it was the weakest point of the book: for me it was the strongest. I read it lying on the grass in the middle of a public park so crowded people were stepping over the top of me, yet I was so moved I could not stop crying. Amazing book.
