Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson
Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson
von Mitch Albom
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 17,40

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Triumph of the Spirit!, 28. April 2000
Having been born and raised in the Detroit, Michigan area, I'm very familiar with Mitch Albom and really love his work. So, I find it really hard to take some of the previous reviewers who see Mitch as a greedy, money hungry, person who only got "interested" in Morrie once he saw him on "Nightline". How very UNTRUE. Mitch is a kind and generous man who was just living a life, as many of us do. Work, success and money drive so many, and the mere fact that he was able to reconect with his college professor in the last few months of Morrie's life, is a real testament to Mitch's heart. This is a wonderful story with so many lessons in it. Some may say it's too simple and we all know it, but I don't see many people living their lives that way now. The endearing soul and lessons of Morrie should be first and foremost in so many of our lives, but sadly it took the face of death for Morrie's voice to awaken them. This is an amazing book that everyone should take a few hours and read. It certainly made me rethink some decisions in my life. And, I hope that by doing that, I too, might have made Morrie proud.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun, Cute and a Load of Laughs, 27. April 2000
I read "Watermelon" and it wasn't one of my favs. but so many of my friend had told me what a wonderful writer Marian Keyes is, so I decided to try again. So, I did, with "Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married". Boy, am I glad I did. This was such a fun book. I truly enjoyed it. It was light, humorus and a real treat to read. It's not deep and emotional, but then again it doesn't claim to be. It lives up to my friends high praise. Good Call!


Joy Luck Club (Roman)
Joy Luck Club (Roman)
von Amy Tan
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Deeply Moving and Completely Amazing, 27. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Joy Luck Club (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
"The Joy Luck Club" by Amy Tan is one of the best books I have ever read. It's everything that a great novel should be. The stories of the 4 mothers and their daughters is deeply moving and so fascinating. Their tales of life back in China translate so easily and the memories of these women and their daughters reactions are so interesting. This story of secrets, courage, and mother-daughter bonding is one of the best I have ever read. It's a never-ending source of literary masterpiece.


The Kiss
The Kiss

4.0 von 5 Sternen Deeply Moving, 27. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Kiss (Taschenbuch)
"The Kiss" by Kathryn Harrison is an amazingly powerful and intense book. The subject matter of incest is difficult to take, but it's done so honestly and with such poignancy that it allows the reader to be interested without judgement. Like other reviewers have said, I also saw similarities to "Lolita" but, this seems to hold a different tone on many levels. It's clear this book is not for everyone and it takes a certain sense of maturity to understand and appreciate it, but aside from the dramatic storyline, it's a wonderful novel.


Simply Divine
Simply Divine
von Wendy Holden
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's A Fun Read, 27. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Simply Divine (Taschenbuch)
Simply Divine is fun, and full of laughter. The author's clever observation at social society is what really is the basis for this book. The use of fashion, young women and the men they adore is a common setting, but NONE the less entertaining. The characters are interesting, fun and some even down right charming. When I saw that this was the first novel by the author I was very surprised...she's got a future ahead of her. It's clear she's got things to say. All in all....A Nice Read.

Like Water for Chocolate: A Novel in Monthly Installments with Recipes, Romances, and Home Remedies
von Laura Esquivel
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 10,90

5.0 von 5 Sternen It Fills All Of Your Senses, 25. April 2000
"Like Water For Chocolate" is a rich and full novel about love, family, and jealousy. The binding force of the entire novel is food and the relationship it can bring to a family. It allows emotions and feelings to surface and create various actions. The receipes in the book serve as a narative into Tita's (the main characters)soul. It's a wonderful novel that wraps around you and captures your interest. Very Good!

5.0 von 5 Sternen She cooks for everyone...., 24. April 2000
Sara Molton is a cook for everyone. She breaks it all down, and makes it so easy for an average person to get into the kitchen and create. She's wonderfully talented and such a great people person. Her receipes are fun, healthy and really easy to follow. And, she knows that average people want to make healthy receipes that are tasty too. She's a great resource and her TV shows on the FOODNetwork, are top notch. I recommend this book for everyone that loves to cook, and for those just starting out.


The Age of Innocence
The Age of Innocence
von Edith Wharton
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 12,80

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully Written, 24. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Age of Innocence (Taschenbuch)
Edith Wharton has a way with language that no other author ever has. Her tone and imagery is amazing. Her characters and subject matter lead you down a path that is memorable and entertainging. Newland Archer is a well mannered and sophisticated while still interesting. His marriage to well-breed May is expected, but it's those expectations that makes "Age of Innocence" so wonderful. The addition of the Countess is what drives this book. The senery is just wonderful and the description of every detail brings so much more to this fabulous novel. It's one of the best ever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bobby Flay is ONE FIRE!, 23. April 2000
This man ROCKS. I LOVE his cooking and this cookbook brings all of his talent to the "people." He's so creative and full of energy. His appeal is wide and now with this cookbook, everyone can appreciate and try his great receipes. It's a great alternative to getting to NY and checking out Mesa Grill or Bolo. That's a REAL treat. Bobby Flay is one of the best! ...and, he's so darn cute too. :)


Outer Banks
Outer Banks

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Of Her Best, 23. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Outer Banks (Taschenbuch)
I'm a great fan of Anne Rivers Siddons....and, this is my fav. among the bunch. It's full of many different layers, and brings the past and the present together, very nicely. The story of these four women is mingled together very well. I found the story very compelling and full of intrique. The mystery and suspense adds a great amount of interest for the end. I found myself wanting to peak at the end, before I got there.
