  • The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

    There was a time when “universe” meant all there is. Everything. Yet, in recent years discoveries in physics and cosmology have led a number of scientists to conclude that our universe may be one among many. With crystal-clear prose and inspired use of analogy, Brian Greene shows how a range of different “multiverse” proposals emerges from theories developed to explain the most refined observations of both subatomic particles and the dark depths of space.

    C. Schmidt says: "Engrossing"
    "Cosmic jargon"
    Overall

    Brian is doing his best to explain String Theory and other vital concepts. But, he lapses into cosmic jargon and he lost me many times.
    Where he is headed is amamzing, and he is brillant, but if the reader is new to cosmology, beware.

  • The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    She was great!


    What character would you cut from The Gifts of Imperfection?

    This book is a rowboat of thought, next to a battleship of words.

  • Cover Her Face

    Story

    Headstrong and beautiful, the young housemaid Sally Jupp is put rudely in her place, strangled in her bed behind a bolted door. Coolly brilliant policeman Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard must find her killer among a houseful of suspects, most of whom had very good reason to wish her ill. Cover Her Face is P. D. James' electric debut novel, an ingeniously plotted mystery that immediately placed her among the masters of suspense.

    Kathy says: "Better Dalgleish stories....but classic PD James"

  • I, Alex Cross

    Detective Alex Cross is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that a beloved relative has been found brutally murdered. Alex vows to hunt down the killer, and soon learns that she was mixed up in one of Washington's wildest scenes. And she was not this killer's only victim.

    David says: "Double Crossed.. Double Good"
    "Needs more sluething, less violence"
    Overall

    This crime novel is way too violent for me. Too much emphasis on the violence and not on the sluething.
