Disclosure by Michael Crichton

I just sort of plowed into this book during my string of Crichton novels and pow! Suddenly I was in the middle of book which, in addition to being silly and poorly written, didn't have any dinosaurs or aliens, or evil simians or a guy with a self-des ...more

Rising Sun by Michael Crichton
Rate this book
Clear rating
Oh no! Its the japs! Seems that all the neo-con action writers of the 90s had to do a "Watch Out, the Japanese are coming!" book. Tom Clancy had a few, Clive Cussler had "Dragon" . . . oh man, I need to review the dozen Clive Cussler novels I read in ...more

Tainted Blood by Arnaldur Indriðason

I've heard this is good, and its by an Icelander, so I have to read it. However: a)do you know how many thriller/mystery novels are titled "Tained Blood"? b)I'm now going to have "Tainted Love" stuck in my head all day, so actually toting this book a ...more

The first cookbook I ever owned. Actually, I stole it from my mom when I went to college, and the recipies are annotated with her notes from when I was a little kid. I love the dated aspects of the writing, like when Katzen explains what tofu is and ...more

I can't believe this only has three stars - that's like giving giving the foundation of your house three stars. Joy might not be the most exciting cookbook, but I use it almost daily, not only for recipies but just for everything I need to know about ...more

The New Laurel's Kitchen by Laurel Robertson
Rate this book
Clear rating
As crunchy and granola as cookbooks come, this is old-school, hippie vegetarian cooking; there's a chapter for recipies titled "munchies," so you know its authentic. The recipies are hearty and good, but there's only so much of this heavy, sometimes ...more

New Orleans Cookbook by Rima Collin
Rate this book
Clear rating
Its a good thing I started eating sea-food, or else this would just be a decoration. As it is, the recipies are VERY authintic, meaning I have to find someway to replace bacon-fat in almost everything. What I've made out of here, however, has been am ...more

The Big Book of Soups and Stews by Maryana Vollstedt
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love soup and I love soup cookbooks, but I almost never use this. The recipies look good enough, but the layout isn't appealing, and I find if I don't like how a cookbook is layed out, I never use it; it's too much work, and I have enough cookbooks ...more

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
