    5-0 out of 5 stars Good translation of a timeless classic
    I am inclined to agree with the reviewer who said those who probably complain about the Odyssey being a bad work of literature are too young to appreciate it.When I was in high school, I found Shakespeare pretty boring and hard to understand; it was only later in life his power and insight really became clear to me.
    1-0 out of 5 stars An awful book..
    Now let me begin by saying I understood this book. I read it for my freshman english class, and really didn't have much trouble understanding it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best translation of one of the best stories of all time
    An absolute masterpiece.If you've never read the Odyssey, read this translation.If you have read other translations, take the time to read this one anyway.You will love it. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    En route to Lake Tahoe for a much anticipated vacation, the Carver family is arrested for blowing out all four tires on their camper. Collie Entragian is the arresting officer, the self-made sheriff of a town called Desperation, Nevada, and the quintessential bad cop. Unbeknownst to the Carvers, Entragian regularly sniffs out passerbys on this stretch of road, and in fact has done in nearly every resident of his hometown. He can also change form and summon the help of creepy creatures, including scorpions, snakes and spiders. Though the family seems doomed, an unlikely hero emerges --11-year-old David Carver--who finds his own way to get around the Law.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A powerful read!
    The story is set in a once thriving copper mining town called Desperation, only now it appears to be eerily deserted.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Yes Stephen King really IS that good
    I didn't expect to like this, but it turned out to be a treasure.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A gripping book, vintage King.
    Desperation is my favourite "stand alone" King novel to date. King's "Dark Tower" books are my favourite King books but Desperation is up there high on the list! It's a superior work to it's sister book "The Regulators" (which I personally enjoyed) written under the name of Richard Bachman and the writing and storytelling skills that king has pleanty of are on full display. It's a big novel, worth your time and very enjoyable. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Weak and disappointing..
    I never miss an Evanovich book.She is the only author I actually buy in harcover.I want my money back !!!This is a pale shadow of her usual writing.Maybe her publisher was pressuring her for a book so she tossed this one off.I don't know but I do know I was very disappointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read!
    This book is really funny and a quick read.This would be a good book to take on vacation or lounge by the pool because it is light and funny.I like all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and also Metro Girl, so I felt this book was comparable to those.If you want a laugh, this book is for you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Evanovich!
    I LOVED Motor Mouth!It was such a fun read and I greatly enjoyed the characters.Being a NASCAR fan, I love the theme of these books even more.I greatly enjoyed Metro Girl, but have to say that I loved this one even more!I can't wait for the next Evanovich to come out!!I look forward to each of her releases and have yet to be disappointed!I highly recommend this one for a fun read full of laughs! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Patterson is great
    James Patterson and Andrew Gross have another great novel in Judge and Jury, along with a previous combined effort, Lifeguard.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Loved the ending
    I read all of Patterson's books--even those he co-writes which perhaps means he's not the writer. But I enjoy most of them for what they are--fun to read. And in this one, I loved the ending. It made me smile. And to me, that helps to make it a good book and a fun story.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Historical Fiction at its Best
    This is a very compelling 350-page description of a battle.That's pretty hard to pull off, even if you're Bernard Cornwell.Historical accuracy isn't easy to achieve, either--competing versions of events, the squabbling of modern historians, the paucity of evidence on certain events all conspire to make history something that you can't be 100% accurate about.Whatever "accurate" means.But the "inaccuracies" in this novel are no worse than in other works of historical fiction, like Shakespeare's English chronicle histories.I certainly wouldn't argue that Cornwell is a better writer than Shakespeare, but he is far kinder to the Duke of Orange than Shakespeare is to, say, Joan of Arc.I think the combination of realistic detail (the visceral battle scenes) with high romanticism (Sharpe's being single-handedly responsible for all of Napoleon's major defeats on the Peninsula) is nevertheless a very attractive one, the sort of thing that lifts this and the other Sharpe novels out of the "mere fiction" level to the level of at least minor literature.Richard Sharpe is an ingenious literary invention: a fictional device for telling the story of the Duke of Wellington, a man who really did defeat Napoleon that many times.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Series
    This is another entry on the Sharpe series. It is fun, entertaining and very readable. Cornwell's research is as excellent as usual. He takes some licenses for the shake of the story and continuity, but this is OK. Some people are outraged by the portrait of some of the real historical characters, but historical characters are rarely depicted accurately in historical fiction, so I think this can be forgiven. Besides, usually a more serious account of these characters is given at the end of the book on the Historical Note.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, creative, a wonderful read
    This book was my introduction to Cornwell. Interpersing the details and timeline of the Battle of Waterloo with the hero, Sharpe, makes reading him so enjoyable. The writing is fresh, original, creative, never repetitous. His descriptions of the weather, the landscape, the battlefield are clear, evocative and informative.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A lot better than the first
    This is the second book in the circle trilogy.Like the first book, Morrigan's Cross, it starts off slow and if I could deduct 1/2 a point for that I would.But it makes up for it as it goes on.This is Larkin (a shape shifter) and Blair's (a vampire slayer)story. They are two of the six selected by Morrigan to form a circle and destroy a Vampire Queen Lilith, before she destroys the world.Besides the budding romance between Larkin and Blair this book has the 6 going back to the land of Geall to prepare for the fight that has to take place on Samhain.There are some minor battles fought and more character development in this one.It really makes you anxious to read the final installment, Cian and Moiras story. Nora blends fantasy and reality nicely.A fun story.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A little closer attention to detail please...
    After reading fantasy and sci-fi for the last 30 years, I consider myself rather well-read in the genre.Lately, as my taste has expanded to include urban fantasy, I have found quite a few authors who can make an alternate reality real.Alas, Book 2 of Nora Roberts doesn't make the cut.As a romance writer, NR probably creates reasonable story lines that actually make some sense.Dance of the Gods asks for total suspense of disbelief and then a willingness to exploit a genre for the sake of making some money.
    5-0 out of 5 stars What a fun book!
    I'm having such fun with this trilogy!I like it much better than her previous ones that have involved aspects of fantasy such as the In the Garden or Key trilogies.These characters have me hooked and I can't wait to see what happens next!Larkin is so darned cute and him and Blair together just made me laugh out loud several times throughout this book.She almost reminded me of Eve Dallas with her kick-butt attitude and long leather coat.Nora has done such a great job balancing out the darkness in this trilogy with love, hope and light and it makes this book truly a joy to read.I am counting the days until Valley of Silence comes out and I can read Cian and Moira's story.He's become my favorite character and a book focused on him should make for some intense reading indeed.This whole trilogy is definitely worth reading! Have I gushed enough yet? ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ann Tyler is a Genius
    This story, peopled by a truckload of the kind of quirky, vivid characters that are Anne Tyler's specialty, is a gem. Obviously, many people have a negative first reaction to the idea that a woman could simply walk away from her life, leaving husband, children, and sibs behind.But this is the genius of Tyler's writing. She spins a tale that almost borders on allegory.It is a wonderful world of "what if."What if I just took a walk down the beach and kept walking? How would I survive? Where would I go? What would I do?Do these people really need me at all?
    4-0 out of 5 stars CAPTIVATING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING
    I must admit Anne Tyler is not my favourite author, although I have read all her books.Somehow, her humour does not shine through as it does with authors such as Dorothea Benton Franks and Lolly Winston. However, "Ladder of Years" is my favourite of Tyler's novels and it is easy to see why it once placed in Time's top ten books of the year.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Some Real Truth
    When I first read this book several years ago, I hated it. I saw no reality in the story of Delia Grinstead, a 40-year-old wife and mother who quite literally walks out of her family's life one day--and stays away.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fact and fiction intertwined to make a good story of a bad time
    Senator Joe McCarthy is now considered to be one of the worst politicians this country has ever seen. One of the most effective rejoinders to someone who is pressing a personal political issue is to accuse him or her of "McCarthyism." Effectively used, it can destroy an argument before it even gets started. I recently saw the movie "Good Night and Good Luck", which was a recapitulation of how the news media finally fought back against the charges McCarthy was making. It painted him in a very negative and dangerous light. However, there was another side to McCarthy, he was a very intelligent man who worked hard for his success against long odds. Those good qualities that he possessed are also described in this historical novel.
    3-0 out of 5 stars A view you don't hear much.
    Until I read some of the reviews, I thought that Harry was a real person.It seemed to tell a reasonable tale that you never hear because everyone seemed to think McCarthy was a nut.Well from what history really tells us is that a lot of it was true.Like the atomic secrets from reading "The Making of the atomic Bomb" by Richard Road to finding out how they were copying all our industrial processes from spys in civil production plants.I got that from "Dark Sun" from the same author.5-0 out of 5 stars A great book about a less than great man
    If you're a conservative with a lot of liberal friends than you know all about the Great McCarthy Excuse, the leftist argument that essentially runs as follows: "Well, sure, Bill Clinton may have permanently corrupted the American political system and killed innocent civilians in pointless military campaigns designed to keep him from getting impeached, but hey, at least, he wasn't Joe McCarthy!" Nearly fifty years after his disgrace and death, Joe McCarthy remains an all-purpose boogeyman to be trotted out whenever it appears that the Republican Party might be on the verge of making a valid argument. Never mind that McCarthy was a former Democrat and, outside of his anti-communist crusade, was known as a bit of a tax-and-spend liberal. Never mind that conservaitve intellectuals were some of the first denounce him even while such liberal icons as the Kennedy Family continued to support him. Nope, McCarthy is the all-purpose right-wing demon of the leftist imagination and nothing's going to change that. And anything done wrong by a "liberal" will apparently always be justified by the memory of U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Republican of Wisconsin.Read more

    Editorial Review

    Private investigator Kinsey Millhone has served Sue Grafton well through16 letters of the alphabet in a perennially popular series thatoccasionally breaks new ground but more often traverses familiar territory, asis the case here. Two old, ailing cops--one retired, the other disabled--try tobreathe some life into an 18-year-old mystery that haunts them both fordifferent reasons. They enlist Kinsey's help in identifying the victim, a youngwoman who was murdered and left for dead in the old quarry of the title. Neitherthey nor Kinsey expect that reopening an old case will incite the killer tostrike again--not once, but twice. And while the real case of thestill-unidentified victim that inspired this fictionalized scenario continues tolanguish in the cold case file in the Santa Barbara sheriff's office, Grafton'ssolution is as plausible as any. While the unlikely trio of Millhone and hercranky geezer sidekicks offers a few chuckles, the inner reaches of Kinsey'ssoul remain largely inaccessible to her as well as to the reader, which willprobably not bother most of Kinsey's or Grafton's many admirers.

    I really like the storyline of this book.I am interested in cold cases and liked the fact that this book was loosely based on a real unsolved California cold case.The book still drug for me in places like I feel all her books do but I am still glad I read it.I liked the addition of Detectives Oliphant and Dolan and the interaction between them and Kinsey.Overall a good read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Grafton keeps us on the edge of our seats...and slowly falling.
    PI Kinsey Millhone is at it again, this time trying to solve the eighteen-year-old murder of a previous `cold case'--an unidentified female victim.

    Always great listening to a Braun mystery narrated by the talented George Guidall.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Cozy Mystery Series!
    In the 3rd book in The Cat Who...series, James Qwilleran (aka "Qwill"), is working on assignment in the features department as a newsman for the Daily Fluxion.Returning to writing for a paper after an absence of several years, he has gotten his life back together and sobered up.In the previous book, he had been assigned to writing a weekly magazine style insert titled "Gracious Abodes" that focused on the world of interior design.Having survived that assignment, Qwill is back writing features, and is excited about the prospect of winning a prize in the Fluxion's annual writing contest.He hears about a nearby town called Junktown from a cabbie, and decides to write a piece about what he assumes is a crime-ridden area.Instead, he finds that Junktown is a hotbed of antique dealers, and he quickly finds a room to rent in the town while writing a story about antiques.He learns that the tenant who occupied his room previously had died in a suspicious manner, and Qwill begins to investigate the curious characters in Junktown.Qwill meets Iris Cobb in this installment, starting a lengthy friendship that will last long into future books set in Moose County.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Those Magisterial Cats
    In this, the third offering in this series we find that our hero Jim Qwilleran has a new assignment with the Daily Fluxion. In the second book we saw him change assignments but for some reason there is no explanation for this change. Whatever the reason, Qwilleran is now a feature writer and has decided to do all that he can to win a writing contest sponsored by the Fluxion because he could really use the prize money to move out of the third-rate hotel he and his cats are occupying. A taxi driver mentions an area called Junktown to the writer who assumes that it is a high traffic narcotics area. That is just the kind of story that an old crime reporter can sink his teeth in to but alas, Qwilleran finds out that Junktown is really an antiquing area filled with junk stores.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I expected more detectiving
    This is another book recommended by a co-worker, who warned me it might not be what I typically read. I really liked the suspense and trying to figure out who the killer was; and I enjoyed the descriptive writing. I dropped two stars for what seemed like exploitive sex and 'creepiness'. I also had a problem with the portrayal of the SAC and some sterotypes that seemed to be placed on him in excess. And finally a few technical errors were disappointing. I would have preferred that some of the pages spent in the bedroom would have been spent describing the clues found or the thought process in arriving at various conclusions. All in all, glad I read it, but it's not a must-read to me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    First Book I've read from Sandra Brown and it was really great. It was a page turner from beginning to end. I found the book interesting and easy reading. A well written mystery suspense that keeps you guessing until the very end. Will not be the last Sandra Brown novel for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A real page turner!
    Great book with lots of twist and turns which will keep you guessing all the way to the end! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A reading occasion I haven't forgotten...
    Even though I finished reading this book months and months ago, I'm still thinking about it. Told from the point of view of Emma Garnet Tate-Lowell, it traces the woman's life from her youth right up to her death during the 1800's. A gracefully told Civil War story, as well as a story of how a strong woman endures her bullying father, death of loved ones, and nursing wounded soldiers alongside her husband during the war, it is one of those novels that will stick with you for a long time. Anybody who read Ellen Foster and enjoyed that (or Gone with the Wind) will enjoy this marvelous tale told by a very gifted, talented writer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very real
    The writing was so excellent in this book, and the descriptions so real, that I felt as if I KNEW what it was like to have lived during the Civil War.1-0 out of 5 stars The most miserable afternoon.
    I read four chapters of this book.Then I threw it out the window.In all God-honesty, this book is now sitting in the weedy abandoned lot beside my house.I never ever want to see or hear from it again.It's a lot of politically-correct, sanctimonious moralizing only reinforcing what our equally-holier than thou culture teaches:that Southerners of the period the book focuses on (and before then and today, for that matter) are evil, bloodthirsty folk.Coming from a background similar to the one of the main character's, I am sick and tired of these stereotypes about as much as any black person would grow weary of the image of a shuffling, "yassah, massah"-mumbling Uncle Tom.Give me "Gone with the Wind," give me anything that does not shove a guilt trip and a lot of rewritten history down my throat. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Revenge Romany Style
    After a successful Connecticut lawyer runs over and kills an elderly gypsy woman on a public road (while in the midst of being illicitly pleasured by his wife) he finds himself cursed by the dead woman's kin, who impose their punishment on him via uttering a single word, "Thinner..." The lawyer, an obese, cocky man, finds himself wasting away, dropping weight so rapidly day by day that his health is endangered. The lawyer's family and friends are aghast at his hideous transformation, which comes on him in the matter of a few short weeks, but nothing the man or even his doctors do arrests his radical weight loss. Facing death from a condition similar to anorexia, the lawyer fights back against those who have cursed him and enlists the aid of a thrill-loving gangster he once successfully defended against racketeering charges. With time running out and the lawyer's health spinning downward as fast as his weight itself, there comes a deadly confrontation between the migratory gypsy clan and the modern people who oppose them. Thinner was the longest and most success of the Bachman books King anonymously released at a point in his career just before he became the pop-culture icon he went on to be. It is a fast-moving story without clear delineations between good and evil, but its cast does run to the shallow side, unlike many of Stephen King's other novels and stories, which feature characters who all-but radiate "life". Worth reading for a fan or by someone who wants a nice light tale, but not a classic or in the top half of King's works.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Yes It's About Losing Weight - No It's Not A Diet Book!
    FUNNY! One of Stephen King's best books and it was written by somebody else. In case you didn't know Thinner was originally released under the nom de plume Richard Bachman. It seems King had an identity crisis. Apparently transfixed by his newfound fame and notoriety, he began to wonder (not without reason) if every book, good or bad (and there were some bad ones) were best sellers because they were released under the Stephen King name. Well Thinner was a good'un and I'm going to tell you about it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars THINNER
    This is another good king book!
