A Place of My Own: The Education of an Amateur Builder

5.0 von 5 Sternen MR. BLANDINGS MEETS THOREAU, 15. März 2000
While some rave about the prose of Anne Rice and Michael Ondaatje, I rave about Michael Pollan! In A Place of My Own, Pollan has crafted a beautifully written book laced with intelligence, humility and humor. Attempting to escape his own "mid-life crisis," Pollan decides to build a cabin in the woods--a place where he can work undisturbed that also serves as a "shelter for daydreams." During his 2 1/2 years of building, Pollan comes to reflect on many things such as the meaning of "work" in our highly technological society, the sacrifice and celebration of nature and the borders between nature and culture. In the end, Pollan comes to the conclusion that there really is no clear division between matters of the material world and those of the spirit. A warm, witty and wise story told in prose as crystal clear as a bright winter's day. I'd gladly give it ten stars if I could.


The Path to Love: Renewing the Power of Spirit in Your Life
The Path to Love: Renewing the Power of Spirit in Your Life
von Deepak Chopra
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen A GIFT FOR FANS OF CHOPRA, 15. März 2000
While Deepak Chopra is usually too "New Age" for my taste, I am immediately impressed by both his compassion and his wisdom. In The Path to Love, Chopra helps us to deepen our most intimate love relationships with the gifts of the spirit. Drawing on the wisdom of the ancient Vedic texts of India and employing stories of "love gone wrong," Chopra illuminates the seven stages of love and then gives us specific exercises to help overcome the obstacles to love in our own lives. Not really my cup of tea, but definitely a five star book for those who enjoy Chopra.


Creating Web Pages for Dummies (4th ed)
Creating Web Pages for Dummies (4th ed)
von Bud E. Smith
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen A SOLID INTRODUCTION FOR BEGINNERS, 12. März 2000
This book provides a good foundation for Internet beginners. It explains very clearly all aspects of the Internet and HTML language, including important information on graphics, Web publishing protocols, etc. However, this is definitely a book for novices. If you already possess some knowledge of Web publishing, you might find this book too basic. I also think this book is more ideally suited to designing personal Web pages, not professional ones. Further study is certainly needed after this book is finished. But like all "Dummy" books, it is very easy to understand.


Casanova in Love
Casanova in Love
von Andrew Miller
  Gebundene Ausgabe

3.0 von 5 Sternen CASANOVA, THE BUMBLER, 12. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Casanova in Love (Gebundene Ausgabe)
At the ripe old age of thirty-eight (?), already jaded and weary, Giacomo Casanova decides to "give it a rest" in England. However, he's soon lured back to his old way of life by the lovely, young Marie Charpillon. Marie, however, is no pushover for Casanova's charms and Casanova, himself, seems to have lost his touch. What follows could have been a hilarious farce of the highest order but it falls far short of the mark. The moments of hilarity are too few and too far between and Casanova's philosophical meanderings on the meaning of life and growing old just don't cut it. And, although the character of Casanova is sometimes brilliantly drawn, Marie, the object of Casanova's affections, has to be one of the weakest love interests in the history of literature. The book suffers from long boring stretches between the brilliant flashes of light. The premise, however, remains terrific, and had Miller been able to sustain the random hilarity, Casanova In Love would indeed have been a five star farce. Oh well, maybe next time.

1.0 von 5 Sternen REALLY!, 9. März 2000
Purple prose does not translate into either literature or poetry. This is the only book that actually made me physically ill. I could say a lot more but that would only be giving this book free advertising and that is something I definitely do NOT want to do!


How Stella Got Her Groove Back
How Stella Got Her Groove Back
von Terry McMillan
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen VIBRANT AND EXUBERANT, 8. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: How Stella Got Her Groove Back (Taschenbuch)
Oh come on, people, stop criticizing this book just because it's not a heavy, philosophical tome! Who doesn't need to laugh once in awhile? I know I sure do and I did with this witty, vibrant, fun book. The characters are immensely likable, the setting is fun and the plot is a hoot. Thanks, Terry McMillan for a fun little romp in Jamaica!


Blindness (Harvest Book)
Blindness (Harvest Book)
von José Saramago
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,49

5.0 von 5 Sternen WILDLY PROVACATIVE, 8. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Blindness (Harvest Book) (Taschenbuch)
While I didn't care for the strange use of the English language, I do find Blindness to encompass the most wildly provacative and original premise I have yet to find. It is a novel of horror and far surpasses anything Stephen King or Clive Cussler has ever written. Blindness tells the tale of the breakdown of society and as it does, it shows us just how fragile that society really is. That something such as this could really happen only adds to the chilling tone of the tale. Saramago is certainly one of the most brilliant authors now writing and Blindness is a novel that would do any author credit. The translation is perfect and the novel loses nothing by not having been originally written in English. Highly recommended for those looking for something different, chilling and highly intellectual.

The Pianist: The Extraordinary True Story of One Man's Survival in Warsaw, 1939-1945
von Wladyslaw Szpilman
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen RARE LOOK AT LIFE IN THE WARSAW GHETTO, 8. März 2000
The are several books detailing the horrors of the Holocaust and although each and every person's story is important, this book is very unique. One man's story of survival in Warsaw during World War II offers a new perspective on the Holocaust. Although this perspective is none the less chilling, it does help break stereotypes which continue today and shows that good and evil existed among both the German and Jewish populations.


Eva Peron: A Biography
Eva Peron: A Biography
von Alicia Dujovne Ortiz
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE BEST BIOGRAPHY OF EVA PERON AVAILABLE, 8. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Eva Peron: A Biography (Taschenbuch)
This book offers a completely unbiased look at one of the most controversial first ladies of the twentieth century. Eva Peron was both adored and despised and many aspects of her life are open to wide speculation. The author never tries to assume one opinion, as most biographers do, but carefully presents each possible version of the events in question. Eva is presented as neither saint or sinner, just a very complex and intense person, and it is completely up to the reader as to how to judge her. This is probably the most well researched and honest biography of Eva Peron available.

5.0 von 5 Sternen EXCELLENT TALE OF REVENGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES, 8. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: One Deadly Summer (Taschenbuch)
The author did an excellent job of weaving the story together, one piece at a time while never losing momentum. Although the main character's desire for revenge stems from events of the past, the reader is never bombarded with backstory and is instead shown backstory through character thoughts when it is necessary and pertinent to the story. Although I cannot say that any of the characters are likable, there are believable and the author does keep us aware of their thoughts and intentions, therefore continuously holding our interest. The ending is surprising, dramatic and certainly well worth the wait.
