5.0 von 5 Sternen Throw away all the other management books..., 16. Juli 2000
Because you dont need them anymore. This book really works. As a new supervisor, it was my responsibility to transfer a difficult employee to another section. I used the tips in this book and made it sound like a GREAT OPPORTUNITY and it turned out that she couldnt wait to leave! Even if you are not in management, read this book. It makes alot of sense, and the principles are based on common sense. D. Carnegie calls on the wisdom of great historical figures to proves his points.


True Love
True Love
von Robert Fulghum
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen I realize that I am old fashioned, 28. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: True Love (Taschenbuch)
this book was a fast read, and many of the stories contained in it were truly beautiful. My favorite one was the college student who found love through DH Lawrence and the woman who helped him find it. The reason why I am only giving this 4 stars is my own old fashioned ideas. Many of the stories dealt with people who were married and "fell in love" with people other than their spouses, while being married.


I Know This Much Is True (Oprah's Book Club)
I Know This Much Is True (Oprah's Book Club)
von Wally Lamb
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen reads like a memoir, 23. Mai 2000
This was an incredible book, in fact, one that I almost did not read. I absolutely hated Shes Come Undone, but I decided to give the author another chance, and I am glad that I did. Dominick seems so real, and you suffer the pain along with him. Due to the fact that I am going through some hard times right now makes me believe that misery surely does love company, because I could understand his misery. This book is actually three stories in one; Dominicks, his grandfather, and "the monkey". I loved the way this book flowed, it is truly a masterpiece


A Knight in Shining Armor
A Knight in Shining Armor
von Jude Deveraux
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen THIS IS, WAS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE MY FAVORITE BOOK, 29. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Knight in Shining Armor (Taschenbuch)
I have read this romantic tale at least four times. I even had my ex husband read it outloud to me many years ago. The time travel aspect of the book made it even more interesting.
The historical aspects and research Ms. Deveraux did can make one overlook the formula romance plot. I even listened to this book on tape!
Do yourself a favor, get this book, set aside a night and read the whole thing. Hopefully you will be forever touched by it as I was.
I would love to see a movie version of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen i read this book in 1979, 16. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Minds of Billy Milligan (Taschenbuch)
Could you believe that I still think about it. It was one of the most incredible books I have ever read. Billy was the victim of horrible abuse in the hands of his stepfather and to escape he took on these different personalities. I hope that Billy has gotten the help that he needed to become a "normal" person. I havent picked up the book since '79 so I dont know if he is still in prison or not, but his story still haunts me to this day. If anyone knows what happened to Billy and has a minute to email me, I would appreciate it. My email is nicthesociopath@iwon.com. Thanks


The Virgin Suicides (Roman)
The Virgin Suicides (Roman)
von Jeffrey Eugenides

3.0 von 5 Sternen A very smelly book, 6. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Virgin Suicides (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
I thought this was a beautifully written book, but the author concentrated so much on different foul odors that it took away some of the beauty of it for me. I could not read it without thinking of bad bodily smells, or the smells coming from the Lisbon house. The book made me think about why these girls commited suicide and I like the fact that the author never really tells you why so you can come to your own conclusions. My only other criticism was that I never really connected with the sisters, except for Lux, who seemed the be the focal point of the story. I am interested in seeing what the movie will be like.


Ellen Foster: A Novel (Vintage Contemporaries)
Ellen Foster: A Novel (Vintage Contemporaries)
von Kaye Gibbons

1.0 von 5 Sternen I just dont get it, 8. Februar 2000
I feel the book was rather sophomorish. It seems more like a childs book than an adults. I didnt really care about Ellen at all. This is the second book that I have read from Oprah's book club, I can see that she doesnt have the same taste in literature as I do.


Wake Up, I'm Fat!
Wake Up, I'm Fat!
von Camryn Manheim
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen I laughed, I cried, and then I laughed some more..., 7. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wake Up, I'm Fat! (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I loved this book. Camryn is a wonderful writer and she spoke for me, and hopefully most of us fat girls. I could really relate to the rejection of her family and society as a whole. I am so happy that she has reached the fame she has. The book made me want to yell WAKE UP WORLD! WE ARE FAT, AND WERE GONNA TAKE OVER THE WORLD!

A Monk Swimming: A Memoir

Preis: EUR 16,47

3.0 von 5 Sternen good first half, dull second half, 1. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Monk Swimming: A Memoir (Taschenbuch)
I loved the first half of this book, but the second half suceeds in telling us nothing more than MM was a drunk and liked to sleep around. I liked him at first, and then (unfortunatly) saw him as nothing more than an obnoxious bore.
