The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - book cover picture

I've read the other reviews and what no one seems to have commented on is the main theme of revenge - from Buttercup's parents' insults to Mad Max creating humiliations galore for Prince Humperdink, and everything in between. The dread pirate Robert's ship and of course, Inigo. Everyone seems to want it at one point in time or another, a payback and yet there is always the theme that life isn't fair, and that anyone telling you different is selling something. Anyone wishing for more information on The Princess Bride should check out the screenplay - I read it in a book of 4 or 5 screenplays of William Goldman's - including Misery, and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. It explains how and why he wrote The Princess Bride the way he did. Also, I've heard that there will be a twenty-fifth anniversary edition coming out this December - hard cover. Have fun storming the Castle!

A Delicious Book!!!

Ender's Game (Ender Quartet) - book cover picture

Ender's Game is truly one of my most favorite novels I've read lately. I think that it's plot is very interesting and Ender, the main character is very easy to relate to.
The book, about a young boy plucked from his home and sent to a training camp for soldiers who are potential beings who may save the Earth from alien buggers in a lengthy war, is very clever. Ender is moved up in ranks early and leads a team of inexperienced kids around his age in a game that the base is centered around. The most interesting part is the descriptions of Ender's feelings and how he copes with the high expectations and the pressure of being a prodigy and expected to save the Earth.
The novel has a very surprising twist at the end and is most definately worth the time to read through it. There are also many sequals and books that just add on the the storyline that are also exremely interesting, but not quite as good as this one.

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

This book is great. It makes for an exciting new instalment and a very enjoyable read. It really delivers.

It all starts up with a meeting between a few ministers, follows into a Death Eaters' Manor, continues with Dumbledore delivering Harry to the Burrows. But the start of school is pretty different this year, starting with book shopping, the train ride and the handing out of the time chart.

Harry really feels like 16 years old in this book. Gone are the sulkiness, angst and morosity of the last book. He's now more self assured, determined. A new boldness and sense of self has come out of his last confrontation with You-Know-Who.

Ron and Hermione are back at it again. But as Dumbledore said, love is a very powerful weapon, as a lot of Weasleys are bound to discover this year.

If you haven't jumped onboard, this might be your ticket to Hogwarts. Just remember to push nonchalantly on the barrier between platform 9 and 10.

Very Good

Kaleidoscope - book cover picture

I bought this book when it first came out (1987) so I don't remember all the details, but I know that the book was very dramatic, emotional, and heartwrenching. I still remember the characters all very well, and some of the things they went through. I liked the 3 sisters a lot, even though I wished they all weren't perfectly beautiful. The violence in the home, and the scene were the girls were split up were well portrayed and felt very real. I also like their reunion--it wasn't all sweet and wonderful like they always show it on TV. I'm glad Ms. Steel put in a character who had some major flaws and yet was a lovable and sympathetic person despite it. Probably one of her best books (the original had the nicest cover I've ever seen too.)

at one point, the narrator, eng, is frustrated by his brother's emotional venting. eng wonders whether withholding one's fears and hopes makes life more tolerable. considering his circumstances, eng's reserve shows both restraint and selfishness. but how else could he retain his privacy? i fixated on this idea for a while after reading chang and eng. while facing a life crisis of my own, i resolved to withhold my fears and hopes and see if that made my circumstances more tolerable. so far, so good.

Last Things - book cover picture

I didn't really have any expectations for this book when I started reading it. It was just a book I picked up that looked different than the books I'd been typically reading; you know, try new things. I was very pleasantly surprised. I was hooked, almost from the first pages, by the immediacy of the narration. The writing style is really very engaging, stream-of-consciousness-esque... I found it very compelling to read such a convincingly written portrait of a young girl raised by such very different people.At any rate, I found this to be an extremely fascinating and unsettling novel that was more than definitely worth my time. I have recommended it to several people; I now recommend it to you (imagine my finger pointing at you).

Definitely worth the hype

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

J.K. Rowling certainly doesn't disappoint with her new tale of Harry's adventures at Hogwarts. She creates amazing new magical creatures for Hagrid to care for, and keeps the reader guessing at every turn. Who is truly Voldemort's servant? Who will win at the end? Definitely a darker feeling than the other three books, but well worth the effort it takes to get through the story! I was astounded in many parts when different identities were revealed. Rowling gives lots of background information regarding the bygone days of Voldemort's reign of terror. Overall, a fascinating book that I intend to read again soon!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

Most people would cringe at the idea of reading a book over 700 pages long. Yet somehow, this book didn't create that effect, especially from me, a slave to the printed word. Harry Potter is an international phenomenon, and this book is no exception. Harry goes to the International Quidditch Championship with the Weaselys and goes to Hogwarts from there. There he finds out the Quidditch cup had been canceled (don't groan). Instead, they would take part in the Triwizards Tournament, in which one wizard each from three different wizarding schools: Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang, take part in dangerous tests of skill. In order to enter, you must be 17, and each school gets only one contestant each, so naturally, Harry is surprised when he gets selected as Hogwarts' second champion! Little does he know that Voldemort is lurking behind every corner and is slowly gaining power...

Journeys to the Heartland (The Wolves of Time, Vol. 1) - book cover picture

The first time I saw the book and read what it was about, I just knew I had to buy it. I know you would say I just liked it because I love animals but there is much more to the book. The wolves are very much like humans in the book, each with its own personality and feelings toward the other wolves.It is also my first time that I have read one of William Horwood's books and I think, compared with other writers, he will end up on my TOP 10-list.Great book - a must read for everyone who loves animals.
