Possibly Crichton's best!

Book title: Timeline
Rating: 5/5

Timeline - book cover picture

This was an exciting, fast-paced read. Like some of the other reviewers, I could not put it down and read it in a day and a half. When I was little, I was fascinated by the stories of King Arthur and movies like "Excalibur." I had dreams about going back in time to the Middle Ages. Crichton's book makes the dream so vivid, and describes in detail just how dangerous it would be. He has obviously done a great deal of research, and does a great job of explaining quantum physics, which is the wave of the future. If you are interested in this kind of subject, you should not be disappointed.

Don't Look Behind You - book cover picture

This is all about a girl called April, who suddenly finds out she has to give up everything in the world that she loves. Her home, her boyfriend, her friends even her skill at playing tennis. If she doesn't she will most likely die. All the way through this book I was hoping, deep down that herself and her family could go back to the way they were. April's father was an undercover FBI agent and now he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program since he has to testify in a trial and there is a bounty on their heads. They're relocated, but nothing will ever be the same and all the time, April mustn't look behind her. Excellent book. I dare you not to like it!

An Enjoyable Read

Book title: Enduring Love
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Enduring Love - book cover picture

While I can admit that I didn't like this novel to the extent that I liked other Ian McEwan novels that I have read (Amsterdam and The Comfort of Strangers), this book deserves 5 stars. At times, the narrator's thoughts get a little complex, but this all serves the greater psychological purpose of the novel. The book means to play with human emotions and ethics; and the extensive ruminations of the narrator act as a great vehicle for that purpose. I thought this book was enjoyable throughout, and at times difficult to put down. When captured by the book's many scientific explanations, one can feel a little bored, but just at those times, there is often something that catches you offguard, pulling you right back into the story. In addition, it is all the more satisfying to reach a point where some of the many details described earlier become significant.

Joshua : A Parable for Today - book cover picture

Joshua is an excellent book! Among many things, this book extremely simple to understand. If Jesus were here, would we know it? How did we become so opinionated in our Christianity? Are we really "loving our neighbors"? Many questions popped into my mind after reading the book, along with many answers. It changed the way I looked on life and the way I understand Jesus. Aside from a few "surly" words and a few things I don't think our Lord would do if he were here(such as have a romantic relationship), this book is superb!

Excellent Software Engineering Title!

Applying UML and Patterns : An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

I enjoyed this book greatly. It provided me with a solid understanding of how to work with UML and OOA/D. It not only covers the basics of UML but brings the reader through the process of creating software, using a persistent example throughout the book. It helped improve my knowledge of object oriented design and overall software engineering skill.I found the book clear and easy to understand. Additionally I found the examples very helpful in showing me exactly what needs to go into a certain UML artifact. The discussions on the GRASP design patterns and GoF design patterns were both very thorough and helpful and opened my mind to new ways of handling various software problems.The one problem I had with this book is the occasional instance in which the author contradicts himself.Overall an excellent book and I would recommend it to any future software engineer.

What's the point of a story that isn't even true?

Haroun and the Sea of Stories - book cover picture

Such an amazing book, you'll fall in love. This beautiful tale will take you to corners of the imagination not visited since childhood. A wonderful work of fiction that takes you to depths of thought that feel so pure and natural that you will be swimming with ease in the sea of stories and just when you were sunk into the depths of deep philosophical meaning you'll come across charachters so silly you'll be giggling with fits of laughter. Never have I read such an enjoyable book and enjoyed it on so many levels.

I Can't Accept Not Trying: Michael Jordan on the Pursuit of Excellence - book cover picture

As all the books of "search the personal excellence" you have to try it to see if it's true, of course not everybody could try this and other books of this kind because all the people are different.
The advantage of this book among the others of the same theme is that you can read this book in 20 minutes or less, is easy to read because it doesn't have examples on how could you solve this or that problem, and it has a strong message in every chapter, if you just try to do one or two of these messages you can be sure that your life could change.

I have read several books from Isabel Allende I can not say
that there is one better than the other!!!, but personally,
I think this is a very special book because you can see how
is the personality of this writer and all the good feelings
she has for her family, life, moments...

On each word in this book you can find many aspects of your
own life: funny situations, sat situations, love, hopes ...
It could reflects anybody's life. The book is also have parts
of others books she had wrote, and is also a biography of her
life. If you really like the author, you will enjoy this
book very much!!!

I do not know if my english is good, but I hope everybody
can understand want I wrote. I am venezuelan, so my language
is spanish. But I could give an opinion in Spanish also.

The Last Day - book cover picture

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and agree with the majority of readers who rate this a great novel. In reading through all these reviews, I'm struck by one telling fact. Many of the people who like this book support their views with facts and substance and quotes from the book. You'll note that all the guy with the negative reviews ever does is to rail against the book, calling it poorly written, but never once offering anything to back up his claims. Surely in 500 pages, this guy could pull at least one paragraph out of context and come up with some ditzy rationale to make the book look bad. (There's a reason for that!) And have you noticed how all the favorable reviews seem to be from educated people with a command of language and literature, as opposed to those reviews calling this book ignorant? We tend to condemn what we don't understand! (Now watch him write in under the guise of a Mensa member!)
