    An old mansion in Salem, moss-covered and gabled, broods over the destiny of a distinguished but troubled New England Family, the Pynchons. A haunting, centuries-old curse, a forceful probing of national and personal guilt, a romance between the young heroine and an attractive stranger all intertwine in this classic work by one of America's greatest novelists.

    I tired reading this but stopped because of the rather difficult syntax. However, the audio version made it much easier to understand since the reader did all the work. I thought she did a very good job.

    A recent Newsweek poll reports that seventy-six percent of Americans believe in heaven. Yet even avid believers have difficulty conjuring up more than vague images of halos, harps and wispy angels in flowing robes. Anthony DeStefano knew there had to be a more complete, meaningful vision of what heaven is like, and A Travel Guide to Heaven is the entertaining and enlightening result.

    William says: "A Travlers Guide to Heaven"
    "Fascinating"
    Overall

    Fascinating speculation. Just hope it turns out to be true?

    Overall

    I got this because it was a required reading for my Special Needs English class and they were having a tough time reading it on their own. It certainly did the trick and promoted lots of discussion and creative writing. I'll have to try this approach more often. It turned a painful experience for my kids into a great learning experience.

    If you have an appetite for the occult, consider this a feast. All of the authors in this collection have penned tales that deal with the supernatural and the supernormal. These include two novellas, "The Great God Pan" by Arthur Machen and "The Willows" by Algernon Blackwood and 10 short stories.

    Great selection of tales. Some readers better than others but, overall, very creepy.

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Teddy says: "Did not disappoint..."
    "Hard to follow"
    Overall

    My son recommended this book to me and I tried to read it. I found it very confusing so got the audio version, hoping that might make it easier to follow.
    It didn't. Reader did a good job but there were just so many strange people, places and relationships to follow that I just gave up.

    On the first night of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, former President Bill Clinton addressed the crowd. The speech took place at the Fleet Center in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 26, 2004.

    "Good but short"
    Overall

    I always liked Clinton and enjoyed the book.
    However, I really wished the unabridged version was available.

  • The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief

    Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God and scripture. Dr. Collins has resolved the dilemma that haunts everyone who believes in God and respects science. Faith in God and faith in science can be harmonious, not separately but together, combined into one worldview. For Collins, science does not conflict with the Bible, science enhances it.

    Stephen says: "For those on the fence"
    "Well done"
    Overall

    Fascinating book certainly gave me a lot to think about.

    John Harmon returns from exile expecting to receive an inheritance, but knows that he must marry a stranger, Bella Wilfer, in order to collect. He fakes his own death and takes on a new identity in order to observe her first. Some of the memorable characters in this, the last completed Dickens novel, include Bella who, unlike other Dickens heroines, cannot be accused of unnatural virtue; the insolent barrister Eugene Wrayburn; the amiable Boffin; and the rascal Silas Wegg.

    Louise M says: "The Usual Dickens"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This is one of the few Dickens books I had not read and it turned out to be the usual Dickens i.e. Wonderful. Well read, also.
