I loved this book. It has a consistency rarely found in fantasy stories, creating a realistic world with believable characters, boundaries, and the vivid writing style invokes images in ones head that are hard to forget. I read this book a couple of years ago and just thought about it recently, but couldnt for the life of me remember what it was called! I finally found it! Hooray! Anyone who likes fantasy should *read it now*!

Haunting and Wonderful

The Lovely Bones: A Novel - book cover picture


The story is about Susie Salmon, a 14 year old, who is raped and murdered by a neighbor. The thing is, the story is told from Susie's point of view *after* her death.

It's a bit disturbing at times, but wonderful the rest of the time. I had a huge emotional reaction to this book, and often cried while reading about heaven and Susie watching her family.

I highly recommend this book!!!

SQL In A Nutshell, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

I've always been impressed with O'Reilly's ability to pack so much information into one of its "In a Nutshell" titles. By starting off with a little bit of history and then running head first into the core concepts and constructs of the language they allow you to hit the ground running. The bulk of this technical reference covers the wide variety of statements that SQL uses with in-depth explanation of each. Something that I was unaware of until reading this book is that SQL has preexisting functions aside from its cases. This wonderful reference has everything you'll need to start creating SQL databases for your specific distribution, (SQL, MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL).

Goes fundamently against modern "wisdom"

Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fullfillment - book cover picture

The concept of spending the majority of any growth curve on a "plateau" is a powerhouse and the antithesis of the "overnight success/get-rich-quick" mentality so prevalent today. Current wisdom in our culture says that to get rich - gamble or play the lottery. To be a star - don't bother taking acting lessons, just whore yourself off on the latest reality show to get your "big break". Staying power means almost nothing to modern society. If you are "in" your are "it". This book describes the ebb-and-flow process of building from the ground up. Progressing consistently and continuously (if not quickly) toward long-term growth. It spends a chapter on each step then compiles them nicely at the end. Concise, powerful.

A New Song (The Mitford Years) - book cover picture

A friend recommended the Mitford books to me. After reading the first book, I shared it with my pastor's wife and she has shared it with others. I have now read them all including "A New Song" and I can't wait for Jan Karon to write the next ones. I hope that she will never stop writing. These books about small town life and the people in them have brought me such joy.I thank you Jan Karon for writing such a clean book that can be read by all. I appreciate your spiritual insights and your understanding of the ongoing joys and trials of our everyday lives.

Perfect mysteries for kids (and adults who are at heart)!

The Mystery of the Whispering Mummy (Three Investigators Classics) - book cover picture

I was introduced to this series when I was in the 4th grade (1974)and it was one of the influences that started my life long passion of reading. Perfectly balanced with great story telling and intelligence that is not insulting to a young person. Jupiter, Ben and Pete get themselves involved in great mysteries with the great Alfred Hitchcok to guide them once in awhile. You cant go wrong with a secret hidden clubhouse underneath a pile in a junkyard and a free personal limo and driver. Great adventures in the series, there is not a lame story to be read! Highly recommended!

I'm a Stranger Here Myself : Notes on Returning to America After Twenty Years Away. - book cover picture

Having read this book under it's English title, I'm actually surprised that Bill Bryson was able to get it published in the US. Some of it is not very complimentary to his fellow country-men. My husband and I moved to the US from Australia in 1997, and our voyage of discovery so closely mirrored that of Bryon's (both in timing and content) that I often felt the urge to write to him and compare notes. We have enjoyed Bryson's writing for years and this is probably his funniest book and the closest to home. I'd seriously recommend this book to anyone who is moving to the US from England or Australia; it should be issued along with each expats visa as an essential part of the cultural cross-over. He helped to explain some of the otherwise incomprehensible customs; plus I can't visit the supermarket without remembering his adventures with breakfast pizzas. Please Bill write more.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) - book cover picture

It was very interesting trying to read this book. The ending I must say is very suprising! I almost cried when reading the final two chapters of the book. It was as action packed as the other 5 books but it has a lot of meaning to the series. As it does when all the new books come out, it clears a lot more things up about the rest of the series. Although, to who ever reads this comment on the book and hasn't read it, I advise you to read the 5th book over. If you have only read the fifth book when it came out and haven't read it since, the 6th book will not make a very much sense. The one thing that I really disliked about the book is that they really didn't get to go to anywhere new (not including the cave). I would still give this book five stars and I can't wait until the next book!

Prodigal Summer: A Novel - book cover picture

I was disappointed in "Poisonwood Bible" and almost didn't bother w/"Prodigal Summer." It is fortunate that I didn't pass up the opportunity. This was a great book and the author's talent for description makes you feel as if you are right there. I could picture Nanny Rawley's orchard, Deanna's isolated cabin and Lusa's overbearing extended family very clearly. The three stories all taught me something about how interdependent nature is and like a great novel should, left me with a lot to think about. I think what I liked about this book is that the characters were all likeable, even gruff Garnett. I didn't find that to be true of the characters in Poisonwood. This was one of those I couldn't put down.

I can't wait for Mrs Kellerman's next Peter/Rina mystery

Book title: Sanctuary (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels (Paperback))
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Sanctuary (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

In the realm of popular mystery stories, Mrs Kellerman's Rina Lazarus/Peter Decker series is without par, and the one I just finished, Sanctuary, is no exception. The book combines an intriging mystery with a storyline that could have come out of yesterday's newspaper, together with the comforting touchstone of orthodox Judaic practice by people whom we end up truly caring about. The story is well-plotted, complex but not confusing, and the dialog rings true. I did not give it a "10", because I thought that should be reserved for books of fine literature or scholarship...but I was tempted.
