Under the Dome: A Novel
A Great Return to Form, and a Great Voice Performance!
Under the Dome was one heck of a long audio book and it took me about 5 weeks to listen to it during my commute back and forth from work. But it was worth it. The reader had a very good array of voices and no characters sounded like retreads of other characters, and there were a LOT of characters to do voices for, so Raul Esparza gets an A+ for his voice acting, plus he did a great job with Big ...
Mutant Message Down Under, Tenth Anniversary Edition
There has been much vilification of this book, or rather its author, since it turned out that it may not have been an authentic tale and many of the details about Australian aborigines are incorrect. However, even if you regard this book as fiction, the book is valuable for its essence, its message. The book describes a protracted "walkabout" taken by the female protagonist, against her ...
Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200: 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories
St. Martin's Griffin
By using just a few simple substitutions and adjusted cooking methods you can stay satisfied without sacrificing taste! Genius! I am incorporating the recipes into my weight watchers plan and staying full and not feeling like I am depriving myself. Small suggestion...I personally do not like shirataki noodles, so just sub out some whole grain pasta. I make the "fettuccine hungry girlfredo ...
Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith
Crime, Obsession, and Fanatics
This book was recommended to me by several people, so I finally read it. I would actually rate it about 3 1/2 stars, but am giving the author that extra 1/2 point because he did a fabulous job of trying to get into the heads of these killers, and how, from a seemingly safe community, something like this could happen. I don't understand people who dismiss this book because they think it ...
Under the Blood-Red Sun
Young adult book re: japaese american life during wwii
This is a great way to introduce the dark side of the US during WWII. Our own racism and treament of Japanese Americans is portrayed appropriately for older children and young adults. It is a great companion to books for this age group learning about the holocaust (such as Boy in the Striped Pajamas or Anne Frank)as it demonstrates how pervasive racism is and the consequences of it on a ...
Under the Overpass: A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America
This is really a book to open the eyes of the average person. Some choose this life style, but others have not other way to live. It gives a Christian a sense of a wide open mission field. We need to help them in anyway possible. Christ will fill the 'hole' in their hearts with a sense of worth.
Grace Under Pressure (Manor House Mysteries, No. 1)
Love this new series! Can't wait for more!
Having read the first book of the White House mysteries, I was familiar with Hyzy's writing and was wanting to see what else she had to offer. I'm glad I did! I thought the White House book was OK, but this new series totally ups the ante. Grace is smart and efficient, the mystery was solid, the setting and scenes grabbed me from the first pages. It's almost always hard for me to get into a ...
Under the Tuscan Sun
Travel, Italy and Frances Mayes
Great US author with such detail to everything and everyone around her. I love her work and although I love the movie by the same title starring Diane Ladd, it's only based partially on Frances' life. If you love travel, reading about Italy and it's food, people and its history as well as the personal struggles in bi-continent living and restoration of an old villa, this will be a great book for ...
Under Mr. Nolan's Bed
Under on top of and right to the EDGE!!!!
Selena wowed me with this book! It is tantalizing, erotic, lets us imagine everything we've always hoped for. Bring the catholic school girl fantasy to life with a very unnerving and excitingly veiled ending, I couldn't put this book down, even my fiance let me read parts to him, sexually stimulating for both of us. Plus a greatly plotted story line which not a lot of smut books have. Bless me ...

England Under the Tudors (Classic Reprint)
History makes history
This is like the history text books we had in the 1950's, which it may have been. Pure unadorned text. No concessions to short attention spans here. I read it on my Ipad however and was able to switch to Wikipedia for analysis, pictures and maps as the mood took me. Wonderful stuff. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can heartily recommend it. You don't have to take my word for it either. ...

Saved my life
I never hit the bottom and I never drank in the morning and I never missed work, yet this book clarifies this baffling disease. It resonated with me and struck such a deep chord, I know I can never drink again. This moderation management stuff is bull dinky. This book explains the progressive nature and sneakiness of this disease. I'll never understand with my brain this disease anymore than ...
Under and Alone: The True Story of the Undercover Agent Who Infiltrated America's Most Violent Outlaw ...
Amazing true story, well told
William Queen tells the true story of his undercover penetration of the Mongol's Motorcycle club. An easy, fun read, and an intrinsically interesting subject. Queen shares some of his personal travails, not just with the Mongols, but with his family and with ATF management. There were a few places where I would have liked more information or where I found it hard to believe some of what ...

Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60: Being Church for All Generations (TCP Leadership ...
Edward H. Hammett
James R. Pierce
Your church will never be the same!
If you as a church leader are bewildered by all the critiques of today's church, this book is a must read. It separates the cultural influences of today's church and then demonstrates how the church can remain scriptural while at the same time reaching the unchurched. This is not a theory book, but a practical one! A great book for core leaders to read and discuss one chapter at each meeting. ...
Under Western Eyes
General Books LLC
The Greatest Russian Novel...
...of the 20th Century written in English by a Pole! Honestly, you could remove any and all of the prepositional qualifiers from that assertion, and I'd still be willing to defend it. Under Western Eyes is a superb novel in every way - in emotional impact, in intelligence, and in narrative art - and it is very specifically a Russian novel as well as a novel about Russia. Anecdotes suggest that ...
Under Her Skin (Lone Star Sisters)
Great new series...
This was the first book in my new favorite series of Susan Mallery. I found her books about a year ago and so far I haven't been disappointed yet. This book was fun, a fast read, entertaining, and one for all romantics. I fell in love with the Titan sisters immediately.
Writing Under Pressure: The Quick Writing Process (Oxford paperbacks)
Oxford University Press, USA
This is the Writing book you want on your shelf
When I first got into college, I had absolutely no idea how to write. I had written papers in high school, yet it had always been an agonizing process. As a result, I dreaded every paper assignment, and put off writing until the last minute. Then, one day, in the midst of such procrastination, I discovered this book on the library's shelf. Shelved between two books on grammar, this book looked ...
