Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook
Bourdain at his best
I truly enjoy Bourdain`s casual, intimate style. The book read like having dinner with a good friend who makes you laugh, makes you think, and needs you to say that everything will be okay. Great read.
The Nasty Bits: Collected Varietal Cuts, Usable Trim, Scraps, and Bones
Care For A Serving Of Pockmarked Granny's Tofu? Bourdain's Your Man.
Anthony Bourdain is a bad boy television host, brilliant chef in his own right (I've been to Les Halles in Manhattan, and it's everything it should be), and keen social commentator. Although he sometimes seems to go off the deep end (his pointed encouragement for increased illegal immigration comes to mind), he has a keen eye for social commentary, satire, and food. As he imagines himself as a ...
Incredibly heartbreaking and inspiring - a fantastic read
I've read several autobiographies of famous people, especially rock musicians. Anthony's autobiography has proven to be the most surprising, heartbreaking, and inspiring I have ever read. From his typical childhood with his mom and sisters to his move to live with his father in a world of drugs at a very young age to his life in RHCP and his recent road to recovery, this book never stops. I ...
A Cook's Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines
Ethnoculinary Traditions Exposed
"A Cook's Tour" by the wonderfully worldly and well-traveled Anthony Bourdain, is a book about food like no other, and it is simultaneously entertaining, exciting, and revolting. Tony travels the world in search of the perfect meal; it's an exciting quest for any chef to ponder, but along the way he comes across numerous local delicacies that can be best described as only for the strong of heart. ...
Liberating Black Theology: The Bible and the Black Experience in America
Anthony B. Bradley
A World Many Are Probably Not Familiar With
The Bible is about Jesus Christ. This is the historical, orthodox view. As Luke 24:27 tells us, it was also the view of Jesus, "Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he [Jesus] explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." The Bible then, is to be read and understood through that lens - it is centrally about the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. This however is ...
Kitchen Confidential Updated Edition: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (P.S.)
Anthony...... need I say more?!?!?
I could listen to Anthony read a 1st grade primer!!! This book is hilarious, if you are a fan of Mr. Bourdain's wicked and offbeat sense of humour.
One of Trollope's best
Browsing in a bookstore, I read a blurb of this book that told every secret twist of its plot. I was enraged, but read 'Cousin Henry' anyway. It was superb, and illustrates perfectly Trollope's own philosophy, given in 'Barchester Towers,' that a good book will not suffer even from the reader knowing what happens. 'Cousin Henry' has other, and considerable, merits, than ...

Mr. Anthony can DEFINITELY write more than Xanth novels
Oh my lord, this was a fantastic book!! I've been having trouble just sitting down to read this last year, but once I picked this up, I couldn't put it down. Yes, it's a bit cliche, but it's true too. I participated in an online reading group about this also, and between reading the book and discussing it with these people (from said reading group), I had a spectacular time :) The book involves a ...
Sir Harry Hotspur of Humblethwaite
A failuire to reform a scoundrel
Anthony Trollope turns the tables on the usual "happy ending" in this intriguing novel and has his undaunted and faithful heroine fail miserably in bringing about the attempted reform of her disreputable husband-to-be. Sir Harry Hotspur is a wealthy baronet whose only surviving child, his daughter Emily, falls in love with her cousin George Hotspur. George is a scoundrel, though - a rogue and ...

Can You Forgive Her? (Volume 2)
General Books LLC
Great read, small problems.
The characters are lively and interesting. The plot and narration are a little slow, but sometimes a slower pace can be a pleasant change. The intertwining stories of three marriages and the pressures of ambition competing with love kept me interested. One problem - the introduction to this edition (Penguin Classics paperback) contains spoilers. Skip the introduction and head straight to the ...
Crocodile Tears (Alex Rider, No. 8)
Best in the series so far
This book is perhaps Alex Rider's most exciting adventure yet as he tackles a mad charity worker, some angry crocs, an African tribe and a selfish journalist. The thing that I love most about this series is that it's actually realistic. Alex doesn't always have all the answers to everything, he doesn't escape from every situation completely unscathed, he isn't fearless. He has real humanizing, ...

When I have a serious piece of meat or an ingredient I want to show off and still manage to cook it so I can eat dinner, I reach for Les Halles cookbook by none other than Anthony Bourdain. I don't eat meat too often, I know he does and writes about it a lot, but when I do I like to treat it with respect and use it to its full potential, when I finally do indulge in it, I can think of a few other ...

Barchester Towers (Volume 1)
General Books LLC
A Literary Comic Masterpiece
In 1855, Anthony Trollope came out with his fourth novel, "The Warden," an amusing, but slight piece of social commentary. In 1857, he produced its sequel, "Barchester Towers." What a difference two short years can make to the growth and confidence of a writer! Reading this masterpiece, one can almost feel Trollope finding his voice, allowing his talents to breathe, relax and take glorious ...
The Vicar of Bullhampton (Classic Reprint)
The title of the book might lead you to refrain, since it implies that the story is about a country vicar. One wonders how exciting that might be? However, this book is probably one of Trollope's most suspenseful and well-rounded novels. You have a romance, an unrequited romance, and a young woman at the heart of it whose lack of fortune could lead her astray. Mary Lowther, visiting the vicar ...
