Goodbye, Columbus : And Five Short Stories (Vintage International)
Goodbye, Columbus by Philip Roth
Here is Roth's masterpiece-in-stories, six pieces dealing with his trademark themes of love, assimilation, and maybe even despair. It begins with the famous title story, a startingly realistic college love story with deadly accurate characterization and a painfully truthful conclusion. From there Roth delves deeply into the American Jewish psyche, with characters that morph from sharply denying ...
The Long Quiche Goodbye (CHEESE SHOP MYSTERY)
The Long Quiche Goodbye
The first book in a new cozy mystery and set in a cheese shop, Charlotte's nasty landlord, Ed, is killed outside of her shop. Charlotte's grandmother is accused of being the murderer. To clear her grandmother's name, Charlotte begins to investigate and gets herself into some tight spots along the way. I loved that this book had a Ragdoll cat in it, since I have three myself. A great culinary ...
Well written, but difficult to like
While the plot is well-paced, the subject matter of child sexual abuse, pornography and kidnapping makes it a difficult book to really like. Still, if you can stomach the difficult subject matter, the book is well written. The only caveat to that is a spectral disturbance at a very dramatic moment that is out of place with the rest of the book. And the worse part is that it is totally ...
Never Wave Goodbye: A Novel of Suspense
Great Suspense Read!
I enjoy suspense novels, and Never Wave Goodbye captured my interest from the moment I picked it up to read. Each chapter was a "page turner" and I finished it in two nights! The development of the main characters is well thought out and Doug allows us to view their inner thoughts. I found myself guessing who was behind this plot, then re-guessing with each new development ........right to the ...

Goodbye Gordon Gekko
The book is great!! Anthony tries to give some guidance on how to maintain a moral compass while trying to navigate through an ocean of vipers. His stories of the tough-love training program at Goldman are both amusing and insightful. He goes through various stages of his life and his career laughing at his own errors and downplaying his successes, While not explicitly saying so he implies the ...
Jan's Story: Love lost to the long goodbye of Alzheimer's
A first person account told with candor and compassion
I am astonished and humbled with the candor of Barry Peterson as he writes about his journey through the ravages of Alzheimer's with his wife, Jan. He starts with the first distinct signs of her illness, then builds a beautiful narrative of a relationship's past and present that has little foreshadowing to the pain that will come. He walks us through it gently at first, and much in the style of ...

The Long Goodbye
Still the best mystery novel ever written
This is a book for people who love to read. They are a small group. Elmore Leonard once said, concerning his writing, that he "leaves out the stuff people don't want to read." I interpret that to mean that he writes for people who don't like to read, or, rather, who haven't the patience or attention span to read other than dialogue. There are many of them, those folks who don't like to read, ...

Goodbye to a River: A Narrative
Meditations on the Brazos...
An astonishing book, by an extraordinary writer, and more importantly, an extraordinary human being. The book assumes the form of a narrative of the author's three week solo canoe trip down the Brazos, a river about one hour by speeding car west of Ft. Worth, Texas; the journey was taken "way down in the fall," in late November, 1959, when the northerners begin to howl, and bring snow. By most ...
No Time for Goodbye
Best read in one sitting
This is a story which builds momentum steadily. The prologue is definitely a hook as a teenager awakes after an alcohoic binge and subsequent fight with her family only to find them inexplicably gone. We then encounter her 25 years later, still traumatized by her family's desappearance, but happily married and with a daughter. We meet her husband, her aunt, and several adjacent characters as ...
Goodbye Ed, Hello Me: Recover from Your Eating Disorder and Fall in Love with Life
Don't battle an eating disorder forever, recover from it completely!
I love "Goodbye Ed, Hello Me" by Jenni Schaefer. This is one of the best recovery books I ever read. It covers so many important lessons that those struggling with eating disorders need to hear, no matter at what stage they are in their recovery. I really liked that the book also includes exercises to get you, the reader, involved and moving forward in your own healing journey. But what I ...

Greenleaf Book Group LLC
Dumb Title, Good Book
Ellie Phillips, DDS has written a book detailing the dental care regimen she recommends for her patients.

Her focus is on a series of rinses that adjust the mouth's chemistry, creating a healthier environment to ...
Goodbye to Shy: 85 Shybusters That Work!
This Shybusters book is the best I have read. While I am not a blubbering idiot around women, I do tend to get tongue-tied. Well, this book solved that problem. It's about getting more confidence through steps, not instantenously. The author's Sybusters tips throughout the book helped even more, especially the ones aimed at dating. Overall, it's about getting out there and feeling the fear and ...
Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye?: Trusting God with a Hope Deferred
Hard-Hitting (and Practical) Theology for Single Women and Those Who Counsel Them
I recently finished reading a book on singleness. It's not the kind of book that I'm usually drawn to. I read hard-hitting theology, meaty fiction or compelling non-fiction. I particularly avoid this genre because experience has taught me that I roll my eyes approximately three times per page (I suppose that shows my own degree of sanctification ... but I digress). Historically, I find myself ...
The Hello, Goodbye Window
Hyperion Book CH
A Loving Tribute to Interacial Familes
I was so thrilled when I began to read this book: my husband is Italian, and I'm black. It was the first time I had ever seen an interracial family in a children's book. The loving, supportive family portrayed in the story illustrate that people don't have to look alike in order to be a family. I purchased two copies of this book: one for the daughter's son I have, and one for the grandchildren ...
