In effect, the company is a ransom -- a trade made by Mantilla and Retten to avoid an Enron-style catastrophe that would have wrecked their lives and ...
Ellora's Cave, 2010
Sweet rather than sultry - and it's a sequel
If it feels like you're stumbling into a conversation with this one, you are. Specifically, one started in Beauty of Sunset. While still a good snippet of a story, it lacks oomph. Former model turned writer and mid-40-ish Edie waits for lover and mid-30-ish surgeon John to join her on a promised vacation and he's late. Imagining all sorts of things involving other women (younger), she ...

Seychelles, 3rd (Bradt Travel Guide)
Bradt Travel Guides
Highly informative, practical, and resourceful
Among the number of titles that we reviewed on our recent sailing charter in the Seychelles, this and the Sarah Carpin guide book (both 2005 publications) served us the best. In fact, this book was so recently made available that it arrived 2 days before our trip and we elected to ditch the Lonely Planet for the Bradt. The first 80 pages provides an informative guide - the background, ...
The Seychelles Affair
A great read!
If you can find this book, buy it! It is an excellent and well-told tale of how one little mistake can devastate even the most redundant and well-laid plans. It is very informative and insightful, and if you have any interest in modern mercenaries and/or recent history of southern Africa, this is a must-read.
Birds of the Indian Ocean Islands: Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, Rodrigues, Seychelles and the Comoros
Birds of the Indian Ocean Islands
This is a first class book for the birder who intends to travel to the region. The illustrations are excellent with the exception of a couple of plates e.g. the Terns and the Shorebirds where too many species are crowded on one page however most European and North Americans will be familiar with these from their home countries. The endemics are particularly well done by each of the four ...
Mauritius Reunion & Seychelles (Multi Country Guide)
I booked a tour to Mauritius in May-June 2004. Although I went with a travel agency, this book proved to be indispensable. I am rating it a five star based on my Mauritius experience only. First and foremost, this guide provides a detailed map, essential for locating yourself on the island. The book also provides true and accurate description of the various attractions and things to do. ...
Birds of the Seychelles (Princeton Field Guides)
Princeton University Press
Great overall book
This is a great book. I am originally from the Seychelles, and I am going back to visit this summer with my family. I am a recent birder, and I am very much looking forward to using this book to help identify the birds there. The book has beautiful illustrations and is very informative. I like that it includes general maps of the islands, a list of birds most likely to be found at the ...

Wildlife of the Seychelles
The definitive field guide to Britain's orchids
For several years now, WILDGuides have been setting the standard for small, handy field guides that focus mainly on the identification of neglected groups of wildlife. Their approach is characterised by portability, emphasis on visual utility (the use of computer enhanced photographs) and a significant contribution to conservation. The latter is achieved in two ways: firstly by getting these ...

Gian Paolo Barbieri
life on the equator
I personally loved this book. I think it portrays the Seychelles in a different way. Usually books from the Seychelles are full of vibrant colorful pictures of the vegetation, the people and so on. This book is different, it shows us that we don't need to see much of the color, but instead to focus on the expressions on the people's face and to view a typical day of a fisherman for example in the ...
Diving and Snorkeling Guide to the Seychelles
A Comprehensive Guide
We used this book during our recent trip to the Seychelles. It was thorough and guided us to colorful reefs and the descriptions of dive sites were better in real life than the book described ! Fantastic guide.
The Nightmare Tree
Meaningful fantasy for all ages
Great read in the spirit of Narnia, Tolkien, Harry... Supposed to be for the 12 to 18 crowd but the kids will have a hard time getting the book back from Mom and Dad! Full of Eastern Orthodox allegory (it is written by a young Orthodox Priest after all) but you have to pay attention to get all the parallels -as the story clips along at such a rapid pace you just get wrapped up in the action. ...
Seychelles Global Citizen: The Autobiography of the Founding President
James R. Mancham

"Seychelles Global Citizen: The Autobiography of the Founding President of the Republic of Seychelles" is the biography of a man who was President of the small Island Nation of Seychelles after the island was given its independence in 1976. Although only president for a year ...
