Personal Prophesy: Learn How to Create Your Own Destiny!
Personal Prophesy: Learn How to Create Your Own Destiny!
by Deborah Leigh
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 22.32
18 used & new from CDN$ 18.80

4.0 out of 5 stars undertanding the hand you've been dealt!, Feb. 17 2004
Rebeccasreads recommends PERSONAL PROPHESY -- it offers quite a different way of looking at playing cards which are usually associated with gambling, evil & debt!
PERSONAL PROPHESY will give hours of interest, teach you how to hone your intuition (find it if you haven't already), how to look at relationships from an historical point of view, & it is actually, quite informative & entertaining! & no, you don't have to agree with everything Deborah Leigh says, you will however, learn a lot more about the cards you've been dealt!

Paranoia
Paranoia
by Joseph Finder
Edition: Hardcover
48 used & new from CDN$ 0.73

4.0 out of 5 stars the price of innocence!, Feb. 6 2004
This review is from: Paranoia (Hardcover)
Rebeccasreads recommends PARANOIA as a grand corporate scare of blackmail & espionage, honor & choices. What a rollercoaster!

Plastic Gods
Plastic Gods
by William Manchee
Edition: Paperback
10 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

3.0 out of 5 stars a fascinating thriller, Feb. 6 2004
This review is from: Plastic Gods (Paperback)
PLASTIC GODS gets only three stars because it is in dire need of an editor, however, & this is a huge HOWEVER, what it is about is interesting & important!
Rebeccasreads recommends PLASTIC GODS because it has a lot to think about -- our addiction to credit cards. It is a lively story for anyone struggling with thousands of dollars of debt; for anyone facing a lifetime of interest payments; for anyone living beyond their means & realizing what the great American Dream is costing them. It is also a dangerous book, so be warned, it has something subversive to say that will touch just about everyone with a bank account.
Good stuff!

Creative Writer's Kit
Creative Writer's Kit
by Judy Reeves
Edition: Paperback
17 used & new from CDN$ 17.11

5.0 out of 5 stars jumpstart your writing, Feb. 6 2004
This review is from: Creative Writer's Kit (Paperback)
If you do not have Judy Reeves' book, & are into cards & brevity, then A CREATIVE WRITER'S KIT will be a good addition to your daily writing exercises. You do do daily exercises, don't you?
Judy Reeves has a mission -- to get us writing -- not necessarily on the Great American Novel -- more on learning to write well, on recording our lives, on becoming articulate about our thoughts, on making the time for what satisfies us...writing!
A CREATIVE WRITER'S KIT easily fits into a pocket or bag, & thus is perfect for traveling. Perhaps the only thing "missing" is a slot for a pen.
Rebeccasreads recommends A CREATIVE WRITER'S KIT especially for students of & novices to the ancient art of writing. It is a unique gift for the writers & wannabes in your life.

On a Night Like This
On a Night Like This
by Ellen Sussman
Edition: Hardcover
30 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tear-jerker!, Feb. 6 2004
This review is from: On a Night Like This (Hardcover)
ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS is about a high school "golden boy" who had everything, & the "hippie-chick" outsider who didn't...ten years later.
It's about getting together for a reunion & "My, haven't we all changed!"
It's about the cost of love, the emptiness of marriage & how hollow everyone's lives has been ... except it's much, much more than that!
Ellen Sussman has a fine way with words, she has written a plausible, emotional story about two very real people who hardly knew each other way back then, who now, when they do meet, find comfort & enjoyment in each other.
Rebeccasreads highly recommends ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS -- it is powerful, amusing & emotional & will leave you wondering: "How & where would I like to be at the end of my life?"

Best Friends Are Like Suspenders: They Hold You Up When You Are Falling Down
by Beverly Benson Van Horn
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 13.23
11 used & new from CDN$ 3.81

4.0 out of 5 stars engrossing!, Jan. 28 2004
BEST FRIENDS ARE LIKE SUSPENDERS recounts, in brief glimpses with few detailed explanations, the trials & joys in the lives of two mature women. Bev's second marriage is falling apart while Lin runs a prosperous store, tends to her marriage & keeps in touch with her children ... & then Lacey, her 20 year-old daughter, working with a full-blown AIDS patient, is jostled while drawing blood & the needle lodges in her arm. Now Lacey has to begin to live with AIDS, & so do the two friends.
Written tightly & sparsely, we see the unfolding of those last years of Lacey's life. How the mother & friend become involved in AIDS Walks & TIHAN.
Rebeccasreads recommends BEST FRIENDS ARE LIKE SUSPENDERS as an absorbing little read, taking you out of your own life & leaving you to ask: "What would I do when this comes into my life?"
