The Rape of Nanking - book cover picture

Ms. Chang's book unrelentingly details the Japanese aggression in Nanking. For this she has been attacked and criticized by members of the Japanese right wing. She did the world a great service at a great personal risk. While it is undeniable that the Japanese military committed unspeakable horrors, we must remember (as Ms. Chang has also indicated), no race can claim to be free from committing comparable cruelties. Her work is an indictment on all of us. History has proven that we are all capable in descending to the lowest level of depravity. Only with a book like this can we guard against repeating the same tragedies.

A Must Read!!!

Power of One - book cover picture

Bryce Courtenay is a master storyteller. From start to finish 'Power of One' takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions that will make you laugh, cry, and applaud. I have read this book many times throughout the years and each time I find myself once again absorbed into the world of Peekay. The story hits you hard with racism and the uplifting of the human spirit. I have recommended 'Power of One' as a must read to friends and family. This is one of the best books you will ever read!!!

Acts of Honor - book cover picture

Intrigue is the name of the game and Dr. Sara West has the weapons to play it. But even the savvy Dr. Sara is in for some shocks as she unearths deep military secrets. I was hooked from the start. Marvelous pacing! What had become of Sara's brother-in-law? Why had five men lost their memories? And when they start to remember, their disclosures will make you tremble. Learning that Vicki was a military wife made me say ah...Yes! Told as only an insider could. In essence: A page turner with knuckle-biting twists. A must read.

A compelling memoir that reads like a novel

Lucky : A Memoir - book cover picture

I give Alice Sebold high marks for taking a memoir of personal tragedy and turning it into an unforgetable and dare I say, entertaining read. The subject matter is brutal (a violent rape),and her family rife with dysfunction (Dad is distant and cold, Mom is constantly on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and Sis is overachieving and lonley). Alice is the glue that binds this fragile family together, and her rape and it's aftermath brings out the best and worst in those around her. This is a well written, page turner of a book that I would recommend highly. If you enjoyed Alice Sebold's novel "The Lovely Bones", I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with this effort.

Journey Into Terror - book cover picture

Journey into terror is a book about Sam and his family getting into trouble. They're captured by unknown people. They go through many adventures throughout the story. It starts with Sam taking a picture of a guy that's bad, now the chase begins. I think that people should read this book because it has action, excitement and other cool stuff in it. It would be a miracle if someone put the book down. I learned that you shouldn't give up. I also learned that you should never tell a bad guy a secret.

All the King's Men - book cover picture

Warren's novel -- one of the best American novels ever written, I believe -- is beautiful and evocative, but it is only tangentially about politics and Willie Stark. It is instead primarily concerned with history; specifically, the New South and the Old South, one generation versus another, backwoods Jeffersonian agrarianism versus modern political ambition. Willie Stark is certainly an important character; it is with him, after all, that the novel reaches its violent climax. But Jack Burden, tortured former graduate student, keen observer of everyday life, is the true focus of the novel; through the course of the book, we see the world through him, and come away shaking with revelation and uncertainty.

It - book cover picture

My friend gave me the orginal hardcover of IT when I turned 18, and once I read IT, I could not put it down. Yes IT is long; in hardcover 1,138 pages LONG, in paperback; IT is 1,080 pages.
Now the story is GREAT! This is horror at it's BEST!
The story takes place in a Maine town in 1958 and 1985, and it takes you through their adventures during 1958 and 1985, and it just keeps you glued to the story, and IT's long, but I was NEVER bored with it non what so EVER!
The charatchers are great, and the whole adventure to find this ancient evil lurking in the sewers is amazing, and to add, this is not a book to be missed.
A lot of critics dont like this novel because it is too long, but dont listen to them, in order for you to understand IT, you have to buy IT, and be prepared to be scared!

"Excellent! Barry Farber's "Dive Right In" helps launch you into action! In my work as a speaker, author and motion picture director, I continually read books, and Barry's book provides vital Action Steps and helps me take the right steps for making my big dreams come true and finishing my film, "LIVING, the motion picture."

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - book cover picture

Along with Eleanor Cameron's Court of the Stone Children, which is also set in a museum and revolves around a mystery, this was one of my very favorite children's books. As a child, I loved Claudia's "just do it" attitude, her cleverness, and her willingness to negotiate to attain what is really important to her. As an adult, I appreciate the reminder about what's important to children. This is a book I'm looking forward to sharing with my children.

Crystal Fire: The Birth of the Information Age (Sloan Technology Series) - book cover picture

Who would have thought a book about the invention of the transistor could be so compelling? And yet here it is. The authors tell two parallel stories, one about the inventors, and one about the developments in physics that led to, and followed from, the invention of the transistor. The interplay between pure science and technology has seldom been explained as well.I'd put this book alongside "The Invention That Changed The World" as the two best popular histories of science an technology of the decade.
